Electric Bicycles: Twelve Reasons for NOT Getting an Electric Bike.
Reason 3: Electric Bikes are Too Ugly.
This is one area that, at first glance, is hard to argue with.
I know that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” ... BUT ... it seems to me that all kinds of Electric Vehicles, including Electric Bicycles ...
are suffering from a lack of “Kerb Appeal”.
The other thing that you notice fairly quickly is that they tend to get prettier the more you pay.
Especially when you pay loads more.
When I look at all of the Electric Bicycles I see - from a teenagers point of view, I see lots of bikes that were built by engineers – but also STYLED by engineers.
Finally, although when you pay more you seem to get better styling – the styling never seems to get better than JUST OK.
So, let’s do a test:
First, Ladies and Gentlemen .... in the UGLY corner:
Next, I give you the OK Looking Corner:
And Finally .... the WHAT A BEAUTY! Corner:
OK! OK! I cheated. I KNOW that the Tesla Electric Car as well as the Lightning Electric car are not
of the two-wheeled variety ... but ... SEE WHAT I MEAN when it comes to seriously GOOD LOOKING Wheels!
Conclusion: Most of the beauty seems to be the BEAUTY OF THE ENGINEERING when it comes to Electric Bicycles.
