There is a lot of variety in electric bikes. This also applies to price. You can buy a cheap electric bicycle from Walmart or on Amazon. But we have seen that with e bike technology that you get what you pay for. The cost of electric bikes are going to depend on the functionality you’re looking for.
High-quality e bikes that will do what you expect them to do start at about $2,000 dollars. When you start looking at really high-performance electric bicycles, you can see models anywhere from $5,000 to $20,000 dollars.
Finding the Right Price of E Bike
When you’re considering different electric bicycles on the market, the first question you have to ask yourself is what you’ll be using it for. If you’re going to be riding primarily on the road, you’re looking for an electric road bike or hybrid. You probably don’t need a mountain bike.
On the other hand, if you know you’ll be riding in rugged conditions, or mud and snow, you may want a fat tire e bike.
There’s a variety of different e bikes in the various categories. We recommend sticking with a brand that has a good reputation. We only sell electric-powered bikes and so we can tell you what you should expect with the different brands of e bikes. When you’ve found the type of e bike you’re considering, and then know the best brands for that category, you can then make a decision on how much you’re willing to pay for what you’re looking for.
Consider a Less Prominent but Respected Brand
We love recommending the best brands–like Haibike and iZip. But if you’re looking for an e bike that gives you a lot of features, like a model with a pedal-assist and pedal-free throttle, and you want to keep the cost down, and maybe this is your first e bike and you’re testing the technology, we like recommending a brand like Magnum Bikes.
With Magnum electric-boosted bikes you can get a lot of specialized features, like adjustable handlebars and powerful motors, at a less expensive price.
Choose an Older Year Model on Sale
Although there’s been a lot of advancement in e bike technology in recent years, you’re not going to see a significant difference between 2017 and 2018 models. We can often get good wholesale pricing on bikes that the manufacturers are liquidating.
