Which is better, an e-bike or a traditional bike?

E-bikes and traditional bikes are both great for transportation and recreation. However, they both have their pros and cons. Are you also debating between a traditional bike and an electric bike? In this article, we'll compare electric bikes and traditional bikes to help you decide which is better for you.


E-bikes are usually more expensive than traditional bikes. This is because e-bikes have additional components such as motors, batteries and accessories such as displays. However, the cost of electric bikes has been dropping in recent years and there are now a variety of affordable electric bikes to choose from. Lunyee's hot-selling Eel Shock Absorbers Electric Bike has an 8-speed design with speeds of up to 35 kph. It retails for just $719. Lunyee also has other well-priced electric bikes that are perfectly suited for your daily commute.

Traditional bikes are usually cheaper than electric bikes. This is because traditional bikes do not have the add-ons that electric bikes have. However, it is worth noting that the cost of a traditional bike may vary depending on the type of bike and its features.


E-bikes come with a motor that provides extra power assistance as you pedal. This makes riding an e-bike easier, especially when going up hills or in windy conditions.

Conventional bicycles are powered by the rider pedaling the vehicle, which can be laborious if you need to pedal harder if you need to climb a hill or against the wind.

Recharge mileage

The range that an e-bike can travel on a single charge is fixed. This usually varies by the size of the battery, the type of motor, and the terrain you ride on. However, most e-bikes can travel at least 20 miles on a single charge. Most of Lunyee's e-bikes have a range of up to 35 kilometers on a single charge, with some vehicles having a higher range.

There is no limit to how far you can travel on a traditional bicycle, as long as you are willing to keep pedaling. However, long rides can leave you tired.



E-bikes require more maintenance than traditional bikes. This is because e-bikes have extra components that wear out over time. If the wear and tear is too severe, the performance of the e-bike can be seriously affected. Conventional bikes require less maintenance than e-bikes. This is because conventional bikes do not have the additional components that e-bikes have.


Both e-bikes and conventional bikes have their own advantages and disadvantages. You can choose the bike that best suits your needs. Ultimately, the best way to decide which type of bike is right for you is to try both and see which one you prefer.
