Top 5 E-Bike Advantages vs. Regular Bikes

The secret about how much fun it is to ride an e-bike is out, and e-bike ridership has been exploding in the last few years. However, we realize some people aren’t sure if it’s the right solution for them. Audrey Irwin, now a daily e-bike rider, laughed at the idea of an e-bike when her husband first suggested she try it. She insisted she wasn’t interested because riding a bicycle with the assist of a motor was “cheating.” (Denver Post) But not long after that, a friend told her how much she loved hers and urged Irwin to give it a try. Irwin gave in, and over the past two years, she’s ridden 6,800 miles and her e-bike has improved the quality of her day to day life.

"Until you try them, you don’t realize how fabulous they are,” Irwin said. (Denver Post) Now, she genuinely enjoys her commute to work, she has a fun way to stay active, and she even has another outlet for socializing with friends and family who also ride e-bikes.

There are many advantages to riding an e-bike like a PWR Bike Dually over a regular bike. Here the top 5 e-bike advantages over a regular bike.

E-Bike Advantages Over Regular Bikes 

1. It’s Easier To Go More Places On An e-bike Than A Regular Bike

You can go farther on an e-bike. You're more likely to ride your bike more places, and longer distances than with a regular bike. When fully charged, the PWR Dually can take you up to 45 miles. With the electric assist of an e-bike, suddenly your only limitation is your imagination.

2. It’s Easier To Leave The House When You’re In A Hurry On An e-bike

E-Bikes are faster than regular bikes. With an e-bike, it’s easier to make last minute decisions to take trips by bike instead of a car. With just a regular bike, it’s more difficult to get places on time if you’re in a hurry. With the PWR Dually twist grip throttle, you can even add power to your bike, which, without even pedaling, will get you to a top speed of 28 mph with just the twist of your wrist. It’s also just pure fun to go faster, even when you’re not in a hurry!

3. You Can Explore Deeper In The Backcountry by E-Bike

If you love outdoor recreation, whether it’s hiking, hunting, fishing, water sports, and more, an e-bike will enable you to make recreation a bigger part of your life. With an e-bike, especially a burly trail bike like the PWR Dually, you can go deeper into the backcountry than you might on a regular trail bike. With e-bikes allowed in national parks, going into the backcountry by bike has never been more compelling. A powerful e-bike also offers higher towing capacity than a regular e-bike. So, instead of packing the truck to go camping next weekend, you can pack your e-bike trailer and have a real backcountry adventure!

4. Arrive Fresh On An E-Bike

With an e-bike, you’re less likely to show up sweaty at work or to meet with friends compared to a regular bike. When you want to arrive in style, an e-bike is the way to go!

5. Bike Commuting Everyday Is More Realistic With an E-Bike

With an e-bike, you’re more likely to make commuting by bike a habit than with a regular bike. Many people with the best of intentions get a regular bike with the goal of reducing how much they drive. Unfortunately, many find it just isn’t the case. Switching from a car to regular bike for everyday commuting is a big jump for most people. Switching from a car to an e-bike is much more realistic. 

So there you have it. These are the top 5 advantages to riding an e-bike over a regular bike. At the end of the day, it’s really about having a bike you love, and will actually use, and data shows that people love their e-bikes, and love to ride them all the time.
