Electric bicycles have two functions: pedal-assist and a pedal-free throttle. Some electric bikes have both of these features. Some have one or the other. A pedal-free throttle allows you to push a lever for power without pushing on the pedals. Learn here about the types of electric bikes with a throttle-only.
Some people are looking for an inexpensive electric bicycle to see how they like the technology. They want a starter e bike, one that is simple and fun. Others want a high-performance bicycle that will go fast like a motorcycle.
A throttle is excellent when you get tired and don’t want to pedal anymore. And sometimes you want to cruise, go fast, and enjoy the ride without worrying about putting effort. Electric mountain bikes usually have pedal-assist. Manufacturers design throttle-only electric bikes for quick road-riding, not for off-road use.
