One question we get asked a lot is if an eBike can be used on roads and for mountain biking. It makes sense - you want a versatile bike that you can use for all kinds of situations. Electric bikes are also an investment, so it's smart to try and maximize how much riding you can do on your new bike.
Since every bike is going to have certain things it does really well, and other things it can’t do as well, we typically suggest that you choose a bike based on what kind of riding you want to do most. But in the interest of being helpful to all the folks who ask this question, we decided to do a test to see what it would be like to commute on roads with an electric mountain bike.
