A Basic Guideline to Starting your Ebike Search:

The most common question we hear at Blix is "What should I look for when choosing an ebike?" This question is hard to answer because it really depends on your personal preferences. A good system to use is to ask yourself these 10 questions before you start your search:

  1. What style of ebike do I want? Mountain, City, Folding, Cargo, Cruiser, Trike?
  2. Do I want an upright or relaxed riding position?
  3. Do I want a step-over or a low-step frame?
  4. Will I need/want a compact bike or a full size bike?
  5. Where do I plan to ride my bike?
  6. What do I plan to bring with me on my bike?
  7. How far do I plan to ride every day?

Based on your answers, it will provide a basic set of guidelines to help you narrow your search for the perfect ebike!
