One the better 20 inch e-bike. For those who are looking for comfortable rides on the road. The gigantic tire goes over any pothole with ease. We love that rear rack double as a seat so if you are looking to pillion a friend, this model is the one for you. The battery is easily detachable, just pop the seat forward and unlock the locking mechanism on the battery to remove it. (We noticed that the battery will make a small rattle sound over bumpy road but it can be easy to eliminate the sound by placing a rubber pad underneath the battery.) Weighting in at 19.5 kg, this is the heaviest e-bike on our list. (Ladies, you may want to steer away from this.)
