Depending on where you live, electric bikes are all the rage. They make riding a bike easier than ever and are giving millions of people around the world the ability to go further with less effort. Whether you're a baby boomer looking to get around easier on a bicycle, a commuter that's looking for a fast, efficient and sweat-free way to get to the office or you're a cargo bike owner committed to living a life without a car, electric bikes give you a new found freedom on a bike.
In Europe and Asia, e-bikes are dominating the local bicycle markets and consumers there have widely adopted electric bikes as their preferred way of getting around. Here in the US however, e-bikes still represent a fraction of bike sales and even though they are the fastest growing category of bikes, their small numbers still barely move the needle in terms of volume.
