Can we put a motor on your recumbent?
Yes, we can, and there’s plenty of reasons why you should
- Get where you’re going a bit faster –and sweat a bit less
- Flow more naturally with stop-and-go traffic –perfect for commuting
- Move mountains –or at least make the hills seem flatter
But isn’t it cheating to use a motor?
The old adage says, “If you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying.” In the case of electric bikes, studies show that if you are cheating, you are trying –possibly without even realizing it.
A study by the University of Colorado at Boulder found that commuting with a pedelec ebike resulted in improvements in health and fitness after only four weeks. A more recent study from the University of Basel in Switzerland found that for anyone who is overweight or out of shape, the health benefits of biking with an electric motor are similar to biking without one.
Why? The researchers suggested that the ability to fall back on the motor encouraged eBike riders to go farther and climb higher.
