In this episode of Real People Talking About Ebikes, we meet John, the Apple Store genius. He tells us about how he was surfing the web and found an ebike commercial that was filmed in town, he followed the link and ended up buying his new ebike online (you know we love hearing that). The Sondors bike in question had its start as a Kickstarter project, it comes with a 350W motor, and John was smart to buy a few extra batteries, so he would never experience any down time.
John normally plans rides of about 25 miles or a few hours of ride time, but he’s actually gotten up to 40 miles on a single charge.
You can see in the video that this ebike is rather sturdy, with 4” fat tires (John tells us the original version were actually 4.9” wide). This company also makes a “thin” version of their ebike, and recently came out with a folding version as well.
Among the many benefits of ebikes, John enjoys the fact that he can travel longer distances without getting tired, and that he’s actually riding more than he did on his regular bike. We’ve heard this from many of our customers, that having an ebike has actually gotten them to become more physically active.
John tells us that since he got his ebike, he rides about 100 miles per week, and has actually lost 16 pounds and 2 inches from his waist. Great job John, and thanks for sharing your story with readers of the Really Good Electric Bikes blog.
