    Do they make an engine for a tricycle (Raleigh)

  4. As a 75 year old fart I can pedal as fast as I want to go, indefinitely on a billiard table flat, well paved road. My posterior gets sore long before my legs give out or my bad knees hurt too much. However you and all other reviewers talk of steep hills. You must live on a different planet than I. In every neighborhood I have ever lived there are generally short but "extremely steep" hills. On an unpowered bike only a well conditioned athlete standing on the pedals could go up these hills. Some videos show athletes going up steep hills (45 degrees) but these athletes are obviously providing much of the motive power themselves. I want an e bike that has all the other qualities you describe plus the ability to go very slowly up a 45 degree hill without peddling, until the battery runs dry. It seems to me to be absurdly simple to design an e bike with a direct drive which would provide maximum torque only at very low speeds. Are there any e bikes that don’t cost multi thousands of dollars that can do this?

    I like my Schwinn Meridian with the 500w front wheel 36v kit. I’m 66 and wave & make friends with everyone. I pull a trailer for groceries & beer runs. Schwinn also. The Ancheer is a wonderful ebike. 250w is the one I ride most. Most ebikes are past my budget.

    Excellent advice, which I will take to the letter : I can’t buy a bike from you because I live in the Netherlands, Land of Bikes.

  7. Good info! However, I read this after buying my ebike. So actually it was comforting to find that the one I bought lined up with the recommendations, lucky me!

  8. hi . excellent info i am 65 the 500 is good for hills that a250 cant make .In Canada volt bike mariner step thru is a good choice.

    Very helpful. I wish you were located in Connecticut.

  10. This is great information! Just what I was looking for!

    I bought a folding fat tire ebike with a 750 watt motor. I live on a tree hundred meter high hill and this motor provides just enough power at Pedal Assist level 5 to get me up the hill at around 15 kph with hard pedaling. I’m a heavy set 62 year old guy. I get that seniors probably don’t want to be zipping around at motorcycle speeds for safety reasons, but it’s nice to know that your bike will get you where you need to go when you need that power, otherwise it restricts what you can do with it. I love the freedom my bike gives me, and would not recommend anything less than 500 watts if you live in an area with hills.

  12. I might add a bike that has a nice, Dutch-style integrated locking system with wheel lock and chain. This makes remembering the lock a non-issue and makes locking up as easy as possible. With an electric motor, the extra weight is no problem. (I don’t know whether there is any bike that meets all of these criteria off the shelf, though.)

  13. Thank you for a fine video with lots of great advice!

  14. How heavy can you be for 250 watt

  15. Is 250 enough for woman 77 yrs, 225 lbs? Please, please let me know asap

  16. Great information, I am a senior with a breathing problem. I was thinking about one of these. I am also going to bring up a youtube channel about seniors. I thought i could put a link for you on my chanel, if you don’t mind. Thanks Tom

  17. Thank you soo much for information. It’s nice to know you care about the older crowd riding bikes.
