I recently had the chance to test ride some of the electric bikes in the new Freedom E-Bikes Range! I found them extremely easy to use, and I LOVE that you have the option of using the bike without the motor as well. I am planning on using an electric bike for fitness. The way I see it is that I can use the bike with the motor on to assist with the difficult parts of my ride, but I still have the option of turning the motor off when I feel like a bit more of a challenge. I would recommend that you go and have a test drive of the freedom electric-bike range just to see how they can work for you.
