The merits of e-bikes
The merits of Yogi.si e-bikes have been the focus of numerous studies. All point to people’s enthusiasm for using e-bikes because they make it easier to travel to work, to stores, and to school. The perceived lack of effort required means that people can travel farther and are also much more likely to do so.
Electric bicycles and costs
Another reason why the importance of electric bicycles for big city dwellers has increased is its affordability. Lithium-ion battery technology is not only getting better, but it’s getting cheaper, helping to reduce the overall cost of e-bikes. But it’s after purchasing an e-bike that you really start saving money.
After the significant initial investment of the bike itself, the running costs are low. Battery life continues to improve and you can expect to only need to replace it after about 150 miles. That’s a nice savings considering there are no fuel costs and especially if you have to pay to park at your destination.
Electric bikes and health benefits
We all know that exercise is good for our physical and mental well-being, and swinging a leg on an e-bike helps keep our bodies and minds happy. It’s recommended that you get at least 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week, and using e-bikes for your daily commute would probably see your goal achieved like nothing else.
If you’re worried that riding electric bikes doesn’t provide enough of a workout to justify using the term “exercise,” you’re wrong. There are studies that show that riding e-bikes is a great cardio workout.
Still looking for excuses not to switch to electric bikes?
Do I really need more space in the car?
Of course you do. These aren’t questions you should even be asking yourself. We highly recommend that everyone have a car rack. These systems allow you to carry almost anything you don’t want or can’t fit inside your vehicle – why would you give it up? Besides, it’s your car that wants it! Some vehicles come with factory-installed roof car racks systems, others don’t but already have a provision on the roof. If you have factory crossbars, you may not need an aftermarket rack system and can only purchase accessories (such as kayak racks) with universal mounting mechanisms that fit those factory bars perfectly.
