Specialist off-road electric bikes aren’t legal for road use, so we’re not spending a lot of time on them in this review.

To ride an ebike, a user pedals or triggers the throttle for the electric motor, providing power to the wheels. Some ebikes can go as fast as 28 mph. The speed is dependent on how hard someone pedals or pulls the throttle.

The Stromer ST1 Platinum may look less decked out than the other models, but this e-bike is pretty high-tech. It looks like something a Storm Trooper might pilot and has a futuristic computer readout to go with it—showing speed, odometer, trip time, and battery level, among other things. The battery is built into the down tube, and the speed tops out at 28 miles per hour. It also has fender and rack mounts if you want to make it a great commuter bike in the winter and can go up to 55 miles on a single charge.

HR-727 (Passed by the 107th Congress) defines what a “low speed electric bicycle” is. More importantly, that law states in Section”D” as follows: This section shall supersede any State law or requirement with respect to low-speed electric bicycles to the extent that such State law or requirement is more stringent than the Federal law or requirements referred to in subsection (a).”

Electric bikes make commutes more inviting by easing worries about hills, headwinds, and fatigue. “They increase the distance that people can ride comfortably,” says Evelo’s Mordkovich. Commuters on e-bicycles are also less likely to arrive at the office dripping with sweat. “It seems like a small detail,” Mordkovich says, “but it’s a big deal to a lot of people.”

Established bike companies and startups are embracing ebikes to meet demand. About 34 million ebikes were sold worldwide in 2017, according to data from eCycleElectric Consultants.

The article clearly states New York CITY – there is NO IMPLICATION regarding New York State… Albany is NOT in THIS PARTICULAR equation. Did you even bother clicking on the link to “New York City made a CITY-wide ban on e-bikes”?

In the USA, it can get very confusing to understand what is legal and what is not, with an electric bicycle. Part of the confusion is caused by the Federal law, which has often been quoted by people selling electric bikes.  To begin with, this federal definition applies only to selling an e-bike.  As a retailer, it matters to your insurance company whether you are selling a “bike”, a “motorcycle”, or some vaguely defined toy.

[…] the view during your ride, you could also achieve the recommended weekly exercise if you use the pedal assist mode daily on your electric bicycle. Electric bicycles are also great for the elderly since they do not […]

The wording is important on this part I think. It says “incapable”. So I think even if you had a CA hooked up to it that allowed you to regulate the speed and wattage output, if the overall system was still “capable” of exceeding those limits, then it would not fall under electric assist bike. The RCW also says if you can pedal the bike above 20mph on human power alone, the motor can’t be capable of adding more speed beyond that. In other words it shuts off, or goes into regen?

The Ace of Spades Go! is the perfect combination of style, substance and power. This limited-edition cruiser e-bike is outfitted with the Bosch Performance System offering four levels of power support from Eco to Turbo mode, putting all the power in your hands. Or feet, as it were.

The e-bikes in New York should be legalized. This was a very bad idea from somebody to make e-bikes illegal in New York. Making something illegal isn’t to expect that nobody is going to make that thing. Those who made e-bikes illegal in New York should neither expect themselves that nobody is going to ride them there. Riding a gasoline powered motorbike is legal but the e-bikes are illegal in New York, I think this is all ridicilous. New York is one of the world’s biggest cities and there are more vehicles than in London, Stockholm, Warsaw, Berlin or even Gothenburg in Sweden. In all of those cities e-bikes are legal, these cities are named as examples but e-bikes should be legal in New York. They should think more about pollutions and the air quality, this has to be as good as possible in that cities like New York or even bigger cities. India and China have got real problems with their air quality, especially in the cities where they drive cars and motorbikes a lot. The cargo motorbikes are usual especially in India and those should get replaced by cargo ELECTRIC motorbikes making no pollutions. India and China are the biggest countries in the world and there should be more electric vehicles than gasoline powered vehicles. Today there are batteries that can be charged as fast as refuelling a gasoline powered vehicle, normally 5 minutes. But the batteries get only 50 % of their capacity and charging them that fast all the time will use up them faster than if they will get full charges all the time. Fast charging is also not good for the batteries, it’s better to charge batteries too long. Once I tried charging my mobile phone battery a time that was too long and the battery was longing for a longer time than usually. Too long charges are better than those taking 5 minutes but actually still not the best thing a battery can get. I would recommend to charge the batteries in the time they need mostly and charge them too long sometimes only.

It’s Easy to Plug In: If you can find an outlet, you can charge your bike. Unlike electric cars, which require dedicated charging stations, most e-bikes plug in anywhere. Some even have removable batteries, which make it even more convenient to charge. (Elby says to plan around four hours to get their e-bikes fully charged.)

E-bikes can also provide a source of exercise for individuals who have trouble exercising for an extended time (due to injury or excessive weight, for example) as the bike can allow the rider to take short breaks from pedaling and also provide confidence to the rider that they’ll be able to complete the selected path without becoming too fatigued.[59]

“This is the beginning of a multi-year shift away from regular pedal to electric bikes,” Jump Bikes CEO Ryan Rzepecki told CNN Tech. “When people first jump on an ebike, their face lights up. It’s exciting and joyful in a way that you don’t get from a regular bike.”

Riding Position: You also may wish to check out an e-bike’s riding position before investing in it. For short trips, the riding position might not make much difference, but for long journeys, the upright “Dutch” style with pulled-back handlebars is very comfortable – particularly for tall riders. The same goes for mountain bike styles, though these bikes are not often designed to actually go off-road.
