Does anyone here own an e-bike at all? More specifically the small folding ones. I run my own small business and am hoping to get one so I can make trips to the parcel box in town without having to nag a family member to take me each time. I'm not looking for anything top of the range, mostly because the prices are ridiculous, so £600 is about my limit... I've come across some fairly decent ones for that amount (at least ones that will suit my needs), but the majority appear to use the same frames that are imported from China and they just slap a different name on them - a good example is the UK MiRider bikes, which they charge a fortune for, but you can pick up the exact same bike from China under the name OneBot for half the price! So, I'm basically just wondering if anyone has any suggestions/advice and whether the Chinese ones are something I should avoid or not.
