Scott E-SUB 20 Solution Electric Bike

Electric bikes are still a relative rarity but this is one of the most accomplished and accessible models on the market that could pave the way for mainstream popularity. It is stylish as well as functional, which is a definite bonus. It also has a sensibly arranged alloy frame, which allows for the integration of the subtle electric motor without compromising on handling, balance or comfort. If you have distances to cover and hills to climb and you want a helping hand, the Scott E-SUB 20 Solution is a versatile choice.

Because of the nature of electric bikes it is necessary to check whether or not the one you are considering is compliant with the rules of the road. Thankfully, the Scott E-SUB 20 Solution falls into this category and should provide safe, secure operation throughout its lifespan. It has a light alloy frame, mudguards at the front and rear and disc brakes, which will bring it to a stop swiftly and safely. In essence, it is almost identical to the other bikes in this range, with the electric motor being the one defining factor. The motor itself sits unobtrusively in the middle of the frame on the bottom bracket and its mounted position allows the bike to operate in the same manner as its non-electric siblings, but with the added kick of power when required.

The Scott E-SUB 20 Solution is quite a striking bike because of its white frame and saddle. A light is mounted on the front to keep you safe when conditions get darker and the whole bike epitomises modern styling with modern technology, which is something that not all electric bikes can offer.
