Electric Brompton Bike
Electric assisted bikes are not for everyone. Some say the electric motor takes away the fundamental nature of a bike, which is human powered transportation. In a way that view is correct. Nag-bike ka pa. Mag-Honda Wave ka na lang, di ba?
But electric bikes may be okay for some situations. Let's say a senior citizen who wants to continue biking, but his legs are not that strong like before. Or if you live in a hilly area where there are many steep climbs.
If electric bikes are your thing, this is how it would look like on a Brompton. But be prepared to be set back by another P50,000.00 for the upgrade.
