Addmotor M-430 Review: Beautiful 28 MPH Fat-Tire Step-Thru Electric Bike

This step-thru is actually a pretty cush ride. It’s just so much easier to swing your leg over the low, swooping top tube. Addmotor’s max estimated range is actually pretty conservative. This bike is a bit heavier than average, which is great because it adds some more strength to the frame.
