E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
I did not expect this to happen when I got an e-bike. Stick around to find out what it is.

All right. Before we got into electric bikes here at Sixthreezero, I bought and owned a bunch of electric bikes and had my own personal collection, and there was one thing I really didn't expect to happen when I got it. But before I get into it, I also want to mention these two bikes are linked in the description below, the Simple Step-Thru 500W e-bike and the EVRYjourney 500W e-bike linked in the description below. You're also going to see them pop up in the right-hand corner there if you want to check those out.
Now, I knew going into getting an electric bike that it would expand the possibilities, but what I didn't know was that it would increase the amount of riding I would do. Now, I was a bike rider my whole life, sort of a, I would say, novice meets ... I mean an active rider, not ultra-serious, but I rode my bike quite frequently. What I didn't expect to happen was when I got my e-bike, I about doubled the amount of miles I did per week. Now, I know it seems logical. Oh, you get an e-bike, of course, you're going to ride more. But not necessarily. But what I found is that all of a sudden, of course, you have the pedal assist and you have the throttle.
Now, one thing I'll say though is a lot of rides on my e-bikes. I don't even use electricity the entire way. A lot of times I just keep it in regular bike mode while I'm riding, and then I start to bring in the pedal assist as I need it, or I'll use the throttle occasionally if I should want to. But I've about doubled my time in the saddle now per week after getting an e-bike. Regardless of whether you have assistance while you're pedaling or not, keeping your legs moving, and keeping your body moving for that much more time is just great for you all-in-all. It's like if you go to the gym and you're on the pull-up bar and you need a little assistance, it's better than doing it with the assistance than not doing it at all.
So, I found now that I'm doubling my time in the saddle, I truly get excited about bike riding more than I ever did. Also, because of the fact that I know in the back of my mind if I need extra support, it's there for me. It's like giving you confidence. Right? It's like that little voice in your ear saying you can do it. Knowing I have the electric assistance there, I can go farther and not worry. I don't have to worry about, "Oh my God, I have to ride back," or "The wind's going to be in my face," or, "This is going to be so challenging." It's just given me comfort to allow me to push my boundaries even more than I have before, which is why I've doubled my riding time.
If you're on the fence about getting an electric bike or you don't think you will use it, I completely think those thoughts are not true. You'll ride more, you'll go farther, and you'll still get exercise even with the electrical assist. Now, of course, if you get an e-bike and all you do is use the throttle every ride you're out, it's not going to give you any huge benefit. But if you only put it into level one, two, or even three, and you still keep your legs moving, and it gets you in the saddle more than you ever were, that's a benefit.
Now, you don't have to double your riding, but any increase is better than no increase. Right? And the other thing too is you can explore new areas, new places maybe you could never get to on two wheels before. It's so, so worth it, and I never expected before getting an e-bike that I would double the amount of bike riding that I do. I'm so thankful I got into it, and I can't see myself stopping at any time in the near future because there's so much you can do with your electric bicycle.

In addition to that, if you're in the market for an electric bike, go on over to sixthreezero.com and take the proprietary body fit quiz, answer a few questions about your body and your life, and the proprietary algorithm will recommend the perfect electric bike for you. In addition to that, Sixthreezero has a 30-day test ride with your e-bike policy. If you don't love your e-bike in the first 30 days, send it back, no questions asked, no money out of your pocket. In addition to that, the e-bike is going to be warranted for a year. If you have any issues in the first year, they're going to cover the parts in labor to make sure you're up and riding.
Lastly, go over to the Facebook pedalers' group, Sixthreezero Pedalers. You can talk to existing Sixthreezero riders before you purchase, and get their opinions. Then, once you have a Sixthreezero e-bike, post in the group, and make friends. It's tons of fun. There's also an app where you can track your rides, the Sixthreezero app, track your rides, and compete on the leaderboard. It's tons of fun. T.
