Did you ride bikes regularly before you bought the FLEET?
I rode bikes all the time when I was younger, but less so recently. I had knee surgery a few years back and I haven’t been able to get around as much as I used to. I wanted to be more active. I put on weight during the pandemic and wanted to get out and about more. I kept seeing ads for e-bikes, and I figured, why not?
We’re glad you made the switch! How do you like the ride?
It’s amazing, really. I remember riding bikes with friends as a kid, and I love that feeling, you know? The ability to just get out of your house and go anywhere. The FLEET is awesome because I can ride it like a regular bike, but when my knee is acting up, I can just throttle home.
What’s your favorite thing about each?
I love the FLEET because it’s a comfortable upright ride for cruising. We use this model most when running quick errands in town, like grabbing coffee! The ZIP is a bit heavier, but it does have all-terrain tires, which is nice when we want to do some off-road riding! I love that both batteries detach from the e-bikes so we can charge easily, and that the display gives me a quick view of how fast I’m going.
