When purchasing a new bike you must consider what the primary purpose of the bike will be. There are several different categories of bikes such as mountain bikes, road bikes, or city bikes etc. There is also a category of electric bikes that are foldable that are suited for traveling and convenient storage. In addition to these categories, there is also the affordability factor.

For all of these categories there are several different price options. Most categories have high quality options in the price range of $2,000 to $5,000. Some road bikes can reach prices of up to $10,000 dollars though. These more expensive bikes can reach higher speeds and have a higher range than cheaper bikes. You must consider what distance you typically need to travel in order to reach your destination because this can greatly affect the price range. It is also important to check local laws for the speed limit of e-bikes and the legality of them in your area. There are affordable options that are still considered good quality and dependable that cost around $1,000. It is always a good idea to read reviews on the bike, such as at electricbikereview.com, and if possible to take the bike for a test ride before purchasing. [1]
