Dave lives at the top of a big hill and his office is at the bottom, so he's all in favour of a helping hand. Plus, e-bikes are fun! He's the editor of ebiketips and one of the founders of EBT's road cycling sister site, road.cc. He used to work on Cycling Plus and What Mountain Bike back in the day, and he's a former mountain bike bog snorkelling World Champion. Really.

Either of those bikes would manage a 10km climb on a lower setting. of the two systems my preference is for the ebikemotion motor; the two systems are comparable in terms of power but the ebikemotion system is lighter and builds into a neater-looking bike. ebikemotion will soon have a range extender battery available too: https://www.ebikemotion.com/web/x35-range-extender/

Hi Dave,

Having ridden both the Ebikemotion and Fazua bikes do you find one has more drag over the other when free wheeling and when you break through the 15.5mph restriction?

I am considering either the Cube or Orbea and would be interested in your views, especially on distance. I tend to go to the alps once a year and wondered if you think on a lower setting either bike would manage a 10km climb, or is that more 500W battery territory?
