Shopping for an Electric Bike
"Like everyone else I enjoy the convenience of online shopping. But when it comes to buying an electric bike, I highly recommend you test ride an E-bike before buying, which means going to a physical E-bike dealer. You will also appreciate the after-sales service that you get from an E-bike store. I strongly suggest that you pay a little bit extra cash and do the right thing, and buy your bike from a local dealer if you are lucky enough to have one in your area. Many bicycle shops are starting to carry electric bikes as well."
