Without the availability of throttle-assist, eBikes are not a viable option for many people who could otherwise use them as an alternative to automobiles for transportation.
After buying 2 Pedegos last year, we have gone over 1500 miles on bicycle paths all over Michigan. We stopped riding bikes years ago as age related issues slowed us down but these 2 Bikes changed our lives in so many ways. Our Pedegos are both Class 1 and Class 2 as they have both pedal assist features and a twist throttle. We use both features and recommend getting ebikes that have both. 20 mph is plenty fast enough and we rarely even go that fast.
i'm an almost 62 year old with multiple disabilities that prevent me from walking more than an eighth of a mile without extreme discomfort and was spending what i thought were my last days in my recliner watching mayberry reruns . i took a big risk for me and i sent sondors $500.00 against every bodies advice and 6 months later i received the best gift of my life time . i now have three and i have my life and my sense of adventure back. never thought i'd say that !!!!
