All right. So today we're going to talk about the best electric bikes for women. Now I'm not going to recommend specific bikes. What I'm going to talk about is what are the best electric bikes for women, generally speaking, things to look out for. Now what I'll say is there are lots of different electric bikes out there and it really depends on what type of riding you want to do and where you're looking to go or who you're looking to ride with. So it's very hard to suggest one bike or five bikes and say these are the best electric bikes for women. I know there's a lot of articles out there, there's a lot of publishings out there that it's just a general, here are the best electric bikes for women. What I want to do is try to educate you a little bit about the electric bikes that exist for women and then you make the best choice based on your riding habits.

Now when you talk about riding and women or men, there are lots of different places you can ride. So the first thing you want to think about when riding an electric bike is where are you going to go. If you're going to ride specifically on pavement and not go on trails or off-roading at all, then you're going to be looking for an electric bike anywhere from 250 watts to 750 watts. Now, anything above 750 watts is not street legal, actually. So 1000 watts and above, you'd be looking at just doing off-roading. So if you're a woman that is looking to do mountain biking and uphill mountain biking, you're going to want to find an electric bike that's more than 750 watts to help get you up the hills and deal with the gravel and deal with the trails. Now if you're looking to just ride on pavement, 250 watts, 350 watts, 500 watts or 750 watts would all be great options.

It really depends on the terrain, meaning how many hills are you going to contend with, are you going to carry children on the back of your bike? If you are looking to have a child trailer or bring a child on the back in a seat, I'd recommend 750 watts. It's going to give you more towing capacity, more power. But if you're just looking for leisurely rides and you want a little bit of assistance, 500 watts or below is a great option for that. You don't want to overspend if you don't have to. So if you don't need a 750-watt motor and it costs more than a 500-watt motor, no sense in spending the extra money to pay for something that you don't necessarily use.

So if you're going to be doing basic around town casual recreational riding, I would say, like I said, anywhere from 250 to 500 watts is a great range. If you can find a 750 watt that's affordable, that's a good option as well. But if you are going to bring passengers or tow somebody, look for a 750 watt.

So I think the other thing to consider, which is similar to considering a normal bike, is the mounting and the dismounting of the bike a factor for you? Meaning are you scared of mounting or dismounting? Is getting your leg over the bar an issue? Because if that's part of it, then you're going to want to look for a certain bike. If you want something that's an easy step-through, look for an electric bike that has a step-through. If you're not so concerned with that, then you can look at more triangle frames. You know, something that the on and off isn't a big deal to you.

So there's a lot of options out there for women, just like in the kind of normal bike range. I have some other videos explaining normal bikes. Once you kind of hone in on or you have an idea of a typical bike, non-electric bike you've been riding, if you've been riding something over the years that you like the frame, you can generally find an electric bike that will sort of fit the same dimensions or step through as a standard bike. That's kind of the beauty of electric bikes is the fitting is going to be very similar than standard bikes.

Now again, there are some new different kinds of frames that exist out there for electric bikes that aren't typical of how bikes have existed in the past. But generally speaking, electric bikes share a lot of the same geometry, dimensions, look and feel of normal bikes. So it's really hard to make a general statement like, "This is the best electric bike for women." There are so many different bike types out there. I'm trying to just give a little bit of background on how you can make the best decision for you because there are so many different e-bikes for different types of needs.
