How To Demo An E-Bike | Our Top E MTB Test Ride Tips

Published on March 22nd 2019


There are lots of factors to consider when looking to buy an E-Bike to ensure that you get the right bike for you. The sheer number of brands, models, and specifications on the market can be overwhelming. The best way to make an informed decision is to demo a number of different bikes to determine which fits and suits your riding style the best. Subscribe: Our shop: Chris and Steve talk through the different options when demoing a bike; making sure you get the sizing right, the correct set up before you take the bike out, and what to do when you're out on the trail. Consider what sort of riding you will be doing, whether you need a hardtail or full suspension, and which motor you will get on with. Do the power modes work for you? Is the bike manageable when the motor is turned off? Does the motor decouple when you exceed the limiter? Try to replicate your usual rides to get a fair comparison.
