The EG Bali X2 is a well configured eBike. It boasts an aluminum alloy frame, dual suspension, front disc brake. Power to the bike is courtesy of a 24 volt, 200 Watt rear hub motor and 10 amp hour Li-ion battery pack. Range is estimated at between 20 and 40 miles depending on the amount of pedal assist.
The bike has been well reviewed from an operational point of view, but there has been mention it lacks build quality for long term performance. The bike is well built new, but may need repairs on down the road. We would recommend checking out other bikes first.
EcoBikes 4.5 Stars
The EcoBike line has been around for some years now. They are known for their 49 pound folding eBike which is used by some eBike rental companies. The bikes feature 36 volt system and 350 Watt continuous, 700 Watt peak hub motors and 8-10 amp hour batteries. Prices range from about $1,600 - $2,000. The bikes get very good reviews.
EG eBikes 4.0 Stars
EG offers a line of 14 different eBikes from a 48 volt mountain bike to a 20 inch folder. The bikes are very reasonably priced at from about $900 - $2,000 USD. The upper range bikes get good reviews. For instance, on Amazon 8 of 8 people gave 4 stars to the EG Milan model. The lower range ($900 models) are not quite as well built it appears. We suggest good support for these bikes before buying.
The eGo is one of those eBikes that looks more like a scooter. The eGo is actually not a bike, scooter, or moped. It is a lightweight
eBike on a lightweight scooter platform.
The frame is precision crafter T600 high grade aluminum, TIG welded into a unibody type of frame. The result is a snappy looking
There are three versions: the Classic, LX and SE. The Classic is good for commuting. The LX and SE versions are designed to be registered scooters.
All models feature 23 mph top speed, with an estimated 25 mile range. The rigs also have re-gen braking....nice.
The eGo gets 4 stars on review. If you are looking for a semi-eBike-eScooter, we recommend the eGo.
The eJoe Transformer is a folding eBike. It can fit riders up to about 6' 2" or so. The eJoe is powered by a 250 Watt hub motor.
Pedal assist is through a 7-speed Shimano setup. The bike can haul a 220 pound rider.

24V/8AH Li-ion LiFEPO4 Battery. Resulting performance is 16 mph top end and a 20 mile range.
The eJoe gets good ratings, and people do seem to like it a lot. The eJoe is listed as currently not available.
Electrik Motion eTrike
Electrik Motion retails a number of eBikes. One of those is the 24" Electric Trike. The eTrike tips the scales at about 100 pounds, and can haul up to 400 pounds. A workhorse.
The Electrik Motion eTrike is driven by a 24 volt, 450 Watt motor. The power is routed through a 35 amp controller. Storage consists of 2, 12 volt 20 amp hour lead acid batteries. The trike gets 16 miles of range nnd stops by v-brakes. The Trike retails for about $1,400.
ElectraPed eBikes - 4.2 Stars not fast, but Appear to be a Good Value
ElectraPed makes the Wentz line of eBikes using various battery motor combos to provide economic eBike transport. The line includes: 1 folder, an eTrike, and 3 eBikes. The 50 pound King Charles folder has a 250 Watt hub motor and 36 volt system, and 10 amp hour pack. The 250 Watt trike weighs 85 pounds, the Wentz Aurther lead acid model weighing in at 96 lbs. The 63 pound Halley's Comet model is powered by a 200 Watt hub motor and Ni-Mh battery pack.The 65 pound Sir Thomas features a Li-Ion pack powering a 180 Watt motor. The top speed Wentz is 15 mph. The reviews seem be positive. The price of the bikes looks very nice at around just $1,000. Not bad for a not box store apparently well built if a bit heavier and slower eBike.

EMoto Velocity 1.0: eMoto begins their line with the 1.0.
The 1.0 has the 24 volt, 9 amp hour system. We like it.
EMoto Velocity 2.0: The 2.0 is the top of the line eMoto.
The 2.0 upgrades components plus features a 37-volt 9ah
battery. We like this one too.
The eZee line of eBikes is mostly marketed onilne, as they have been for some years. The bikes feature aluminum frames and V-Brakes. eZee bikes come standard with a 10 amp hour Li-ion battery, and for an additional $200 you get a 14 amp hour pack. This is a great deal.
EZee eBikes span a range of models and get very good reviews. For production eBikes the prices are reasonable; we recommend them.
eZee Quando: A 52 pound folding eBike capable of 15 plus mph driven by its 250 Watt rear hub motor. The 36V 10 AH lithium-ion battery pack gives the 20" wheeled folder a 20 mile range. The down side of this bike is that it only has one speed. Price: $1,500 plus shipping.
eZee Chopper: This is a 59 pound, 350 Watt folding eBike. The Chopper is similar to the Quando except it has a Shimano 7-Speed gear cluster. Price is $1,800.
eZee Liv: The Liv is a base model eBike. The bike features a lightweight frame with the 10 amp hour li-ion battery pack tucked in behind the downtube. The Liv is powered by a 200 Watt front hub motor and 3-speed rear gears. The bike is a bit heavy at 63 pounds, but a 20-30 mile range is claimed. Price is $1,200. The reviews are good, but we think shopping around would be a good idea.
eZee Sprint: The Sprint is basically an upgraded Liv. The bike is powered by a 250 Watt front hub motor. The battery pack is upped to a 14Ah 36V eZee Li-Ion with secondary connections to expand the pack to 24 amp hours for greater range. Great idea. The controller includes diagnostics and the bike comes with a bike computer. For $1,800 you get a lot of eBike. Weight is 65 pounds.
The only down side is the 7-speed cluster. We like more gear slecttion, especially with a heavier eBike. Overall though, we like the Sprint.
eZee Sprint LDS: The LDS is same as the Sprint, but with a step through frame. Price is also $1,800.
eZee TorQ: Similar to the Sprint, the TorQ weighs in at a relatively low 59.5 pounds.
eZee Forza: The Forza is billed as a high performance eBike. The top end is given as 22 mph. Power is provided by the same motor as the Liv, Sprint, and TorQ. The Forza features Pedalec power...the motor automatically adds motor power depending on pedal resistance. Weight of the bike is 58 pounds. This is quite good for a full functioning eBike. Price is $1,950.
eZee Cadence: The Cadence features the same power package as the bikes above. The main difference is the Cruiser frame. The Cadence is built for comfort, not for speed, and tips the scales at 65 pounds. If you are into comfort bikes, this eBike looks good to us at $1,900.
Note: The owner of E-Bike Kits informs that the geared motors kits appear the same,
they are not the same as the Amped geared motors. We are listing this eBike kit site for price information. E-Bike-Kits use similar
components as the Amped and Crystallyte kits. Although E-BikeKit parts may appear
the same as Amped parts, they are not. There are some major differences in design
and overall quality - connectors, throttles, rims, spokes, connection points,
and controller functionality.

E- Plus (E+)
E+ eBikes use an in wheel motor and battery design. The batteries are in the front hub, with the motor in the back hub. The motors are direct drive. The battery packs are nickel metal hydride.
These eBikes are well designed and built. There are two basic versions: 750 and 1,000 Watt models. Mountain bike and cruiser models are built with those power trains. Kits are offered as well.
E+ 750 Watt Mountain Bike: 20 mph, 25 mile range, and 36V 9AH pack $2630
E+ 1000 Watt Mountain Bike: 30 mph, 20 mile range, and 36V 9AH pack $3035
E+ 750 Beach Cruiser Bike: 20 mph, 25 mile range, and 36V 9AH pack $2630
E+ 1000 Beach Cruiser: 30 mph, 20 mile range, and 36V 9AH pack $3035
E+ Tidalforce 1000w M750x 2.0, folding version $4495
E+ 750 Watt Flex Electric Bicycle Kit for $1975
E+ 1000 Watt Flex Electric Bicycle Kit for $2275
We like the E+ products. However, there are 2 drawbacks that prevent us from giving 5 stars. First, Ni-Mh batteries are heavier, and get only about half the charge cycles as Li-ion battery packs. Second, a 9 amp hour pack is too small, in our experience, for the motors.
For traveling or tight spaces, try a folding eBike like the EcoBike
eGo electric bike - looks like an electric scooter
