ebikes are surging in sales 100%
I see more and more ebikes this year then last. Yesterday I went a cruising and noticed a few, 2 were store bought and 1 was a kit. The store bought ebikes were all pathway users, and the kit was riding where I was riding up steep hills, through rough tree rut pathways. He seemed to be a younger fella too.
Last year there werent as many ebikes on the pathway system.
This year I see atleast one every day.
I saw a lady buy two mini folders ebike that were probably $3k each. Kits you buy online are cheap, $300 then you need a battery which is another $300-$600 then just slap it on your own bicycle and go have fun.
