When it comes to investing in an electric bike, there are so many things to consider! In our attempt to make the decision making process a little easier, we have created a three-part “All You Need to Know About Buying an E-bike” buyer’s guide series. In this series, we discuss: the differences between purpose-built and converted e-bikes, including the pros and cons of each (Part 1); the types of conversion kits available, plus what it takes to convert a non-electric bike (Part 2); and how to choose the ideal e-bike battery to meet your needs (Part 3).

Part 1: Purpose-built vs. converted e-bikes

Part 2: E-bike conversions

Part 3: Choosing an e-bike battery
