The Riga-model electric bike has it all, especially if you are a commuter looking to not contribute to air pollution. You can run the bike on its powerful 200-watt battery-powered motor, at speeds up to about 15.5 mph. You can pedal the bike, if you’re looking to burn additional calories. Or, you can use the third mode: assisted power. The six-speed Shimano gear mechanism allows easy shifting for any age. With 26-inch wheels and V-brakes, front and rear, journeys are pleasantly comfortable and braking is safe and easy.
A 4-6 hour full charge on the Lithium Ion battery will allow you to ride for approximately 4-6 hours, depending on speed and terrain. The electric bike is lightweight and fully adjustable. A rack behind the saddle seat allows you to carry items with you. The Riga Electric Bike weighs no more than 23 kilograms and features an aluminum frame. The bike itself is low maintenance and transportation is very affordable.
With the Riga’s low price and minimal impact on the environment, it is an excellent alternative to owning a car for commuting or to public transportation. Pedal (for health sake) along the flat road, then use the motor to assist you on hills. You’ll be assured of a comfortable ride either way.
