How much do they weigh?

Electric bicycles often weigh more than their “acoustic bicycle” cousins. With the added weight of a motor, battery, electrical components and the beefier frame structure to accommodate for the added torque of the system electric bicycles are often between 50 and 60 lbs. Some lightweight models are also available in more technical materials (like carbon fibre) and with smaller, more efficient drive systems. It is always important to look at purpose before weight however; just because the bicycle is lighter, doesn’t mean that it will be the right fit for your desired activity.
