We review the Everest Aluminium Electric Bike

Electric bikes are becoming more and most popular these days as people are starting to get really fed up with the high volumes of traffic they must battle their way through on their daily commute to work. Even public transport suffers much the same fate, and commuters need to get up earlier and earlier just to ensure that they'll make it to work on time.

Bicycles offer a great solution to many, allowing them to not only weave in and out of traffic with relative ease, but also to get some exercise on the way to and from work. This certainly represents a real win win situation in theory, but in practice it can make for a lot of hard work.

If you live in an area with many steep hills and uneven terrain, riding a bicycle to work isn't always a great solution. For everyone else, they'll also have to battle with the elements, as strong winds can make progress tough going. Fortunately electric bikes manage to alleviate some of that physical strain from your daily cycle, and the Everest Aluminium Electric Bike in particular does a mighty fine job of transporting you in style.

Coming in blue, this unisex bike weighs 27Kg with the battery attached, and features 26" wheels on its 18" frame. Comprised of aluminium and featuring a 21 speed Shimano gear set this bike has everything you need for an enjoyable cycle, and should the going get tough, you'll be able to turn on the engine and get some help!

With a top speed of 15 MPH, the Everest Aluminium Electric Bike is good for around 45 miles per charge, making it ideal for those of you who have long commutes to work. If you use the bike in pedal assisted mode, you'll be able to get as many as 70 miles from a single charge.

Costing £759.95, it's definitely not cheap, but if you live within cycling distance of your job and want to save money on fuel and parking, as well as the frustration you feel while trapped in traffic, then it's a great solution for you.
