Before you start shopping, it’s important to know what type of bike you have. If you have a road bike, then your purpose is to get from point A to point B as fast as possible. If you have mountain bike, then your purpose is to explore the terrain and be prepared for anything.

What You need the Bike for?

Once you’ve found out what type of bike you have, it’s time to find the right motor for that bike. Again, if you’re looking for a road bike, then choosing an electric motor will help you reach those high speeds quickly.

On the other hand, if you’re riding on dirt or gravel roads with rough terrain, selecting a smaller wheel size like 26″ will make your ride more comfortable and easier on your body.

It’s Your Budget that’ll Dictate

Once you’ve made these two decisions about wheel size and motor, it’s time to consider how much money is in your budget. As mentioned above, there are a variety of motors for different budgets: electric or pedal-powered or both. You’ll need to make sure that any motor fits within your budget so that there aren’t any surprises later on in the purchase process.
