Starting to look at e-bikes for me and my wife. We are in our 60s and just sold our snowmobiles and we looking for something exciting to ride.

I have my eye on the Radrover 6 and the Aventon Adventure.

What is your opinion on these e-bikes?

We both have Specialize e-bike 2.0 and love them 20 mph 9 gears and 3 power

my wife and I both have Specialized bicycles. She has a comfort bike and I have a vintage stump jumper from the 80s. I’ll have to take a look at the Specialzed e-bikes. Probably out of my price range.

Be aware that the weight of the bike and the width of the tires makes a great deal of difference in the bike rack that can be used, the need for a ramp, and availability of a suitable solution. At one end are the bikes with tires narrower than 3 inches and weighing less than 60 lbs and at the other end are bikes that weigh 70 lbs and have 4 inch wide tires.

With our two bikes that weigh 70 lbs each and that have 4" wide tires there were very few racks available and even fewer that had a provision for a ramp (loading the bike closest to the vehicle is the concern). I decided upon the 1UP Super Duty Double rack and then had to modify the supports for the wide wheels and buy a motorcycle ramp for loading the bikes which then needs to be carried inside the vehicle.

If I had realized the problems I was going to have with the bike rack and its modifications (for wider tires, adding a ramp, mounting a license plate holder, attaching brake and turn signal lights) I would have looked for different bikes. Part of the problem is that between the pandemic and the surge in interest in e-bikes most models have been in very short supply or not available at all. There is something to be said for buying something like the RadCity or the Blix Vika+ and then seeing what is available a year from now.

In terms of Class III bikes the technology is improving year to year and this is another reason to take your time before buying the ultimate bike.

No way would I consider Aventon, based on what research I've done on their customer satisfaction. Nobody seems happy with their customer service and support.
I went Evelo. Aurora limited for me and the galaxy 500 for my wife.
Check them out.
They're pricey.
However, I'm sold on the product and support.
