Electric Bikes LA

Best Electric Bikes, April 2007

The latest battery-powered bikes can hum along at speeds of 20 mph with nary a turn of the pedal. Add a smidge of physical exertion, and you can cruise for up to 30 before recharging. Though e-Power Vehicles in Pasadena offers more brands, El Segundo’s Electric Bikes LA has the expertise. More than a dozen models are available (mostly from one brand, eZee, and maxing out at $2,695) in styles that vary from heavy-framed commuters to beach cruisers to a folding bike. Be warned: It’s easy to be seduced on a test ride.
