ELECTRIC BIKE VS. REGULAR BIKE There has been a lot of buzz recently about the craze of electric vehicles with Tesla revolutionizing the automobile industry. There has been plenty of buzz around electric bikes as well. You must be thinking what's the point of electric bikes anyway? There are just for lazy people who have a lot of cash to burn, right? Well, this article will give you a comparison between the two so you can make up your mind. To get to the conclusion of which is better, we must first answer 3 questions.   

What’s the technical difference between an electric bike and a regular bike? What are the advantages of an electric bike? Why are they more expensive when compared to electric bikes?

The first question is easy enough to answer. Electric bikes are regular bikes except they have an added electrical drive system. This entails a battery, a motor, and some way to use that energy to power the wheels. This is the answer to the third question as well. A regular bike does not typically have any electrical components to them and adding these extra parts adds to the cost. Another reason the cost is high right now could be due to the fact that electric bikes are a recent technology, which means the barrier to entry and risk is higher. This can spike up the cost of the product considerably, but once the technology becomes mainstream the cost will surely come down as well. Now, to answer the main question- What are the advantages of electric bikes over traditional pedal powered bikes? So riding a bicycle is an activity that has been enjoyed by people for over 3 centuries now. It is an activity that gives you a lot of freedom and joy while also getting in a good workout. But there are times when this activity might be a hindrance in its original form. Commuting to work on a bicycle seems like a great idea on paper but when you arrive sweaty at your office, you will surely regret it. People who have a health condition or don't have the physical fitness needed also surely miss out on the fun of bicycles. This is where electric bikes come in. They offer you the same exact experience of a bicycle (the hybrid varieties) but with none of the disadvantages. Electric bikes make riding effortless and quick without any of the hassles. The premium you have to pay is very much justified. They are also environmentally friendly which is a good thing always.
