Addmotor E-43 Fast and Fun Best E-bike for Hills of 2022

It is lightweight and plenty sporty. While this is still a pretty sizeable bike at about 75lb, I still think it’s light enough that you can easily turn off the motor and just pedal. One of the fastest bikes that I have used. I was able to tackle hills a lot better than other e-bikes that I have used. Overall, I’ve really enjoyed this bike.
