Do Any Electric Bike Allows You to Switch from Manual to Purely Electric Mode?
#1
Does anyone know if there are electric bikes that let you switch from manual to purely electric, so that you won't have to pedal when you're extremely exhausted?

If yes, what's the brand name and where can I find them online?

Thanks.

I guess it's called: pedal assistance vs throttle mode. Those ebikes with throttle actually are treated differently from country to country or from state to state. As I'm not mistaking, in California you can only use ebike with throttle from a certain age, although not sure why healthy teenagers would use ebike anyways ...

I know this one from Magnum: https://www.magnumbikes.com/product/magnum-metro/
iZip should have some as well: https://www.izipelectric.com/

I have a Himiway Step-thru. Both the pedal assistance and throttle mode work perfectly for me.
The price is reasonable as well. https://himiwaybike.com/products/all-terrain-step-thru-electric-bike
They still have black cruisers available. FYI, mine is white and I love it. Smile
