One of my favourite pedelecs on the market right now.
Covid lockdowns in China have been disrupting the supply of parts used for Shimano's production, causing delays on our e-bike deliveries. Many factories in China and Taiwan, where the majority of bicycles are made, were shut down at the start of the pandemic.
This caused a backlog of orders and a shortage of bikes globally. The situation has been exacerbated by a surge in raw material prices, as well as shipping costs which have more than doubled in some cases.
Which bike is right for you? It all depends on your budget and what you need the bike for.
When you're looking at e-bikes, it's important to remember that not all models are created equal. There are a number of factors that can set a high-end e-bike apart from a cheap one, including materials, manufacturing, and customization.
