Hills? What Hills? E-Bikes in San Francisco [VIDEO]
Here is a fun ebike video that has some great points about electric biking in San Francisco. It is an ad for a shop in San Fran but it is so well done that I wanted to share it with you. It’s gotta a catchy tune too!
Ebikes make a lot of sense for a hilly city like San Francisco where normal bike commuting would be a sweaty endeavor! Don’t get me wrong, I think ebikes are great for all places, it’s just that for places that have a lot of hills and/or wind they make even more sense.
Check out the video below:
I like the point in the video about being able to get somewhere in a congested urban city like San Fran quicker by electric bike than by car. This is so true and it can also be quicker and cheaper (free!) to park your ebike in crowded cities.

Good video for sure The ohm bike is powered by the Bion X motor system . It is the same system i offer in a kit form that can be installed on any existing bike you may have .
Absolutely loved the video and I am looking forward to making a purchase of a brand new ebike for San Francisco travel. These 58 year old legs can no longer pedal standard bikes on these hills.
Did I actually see that girl go uphill without pedaling?
Please!!! Give me a break!
Where have you been for the past five years of pure agony?

Glad you liked that video. Stay tuned for more!
How’ bout a 2017-2018 update? How much bike do I need to climb Clipper or a similarly long and steep hill for example? Compare a $3K Cube bike with a 250W motor and 500Wh battery with a $5K Stromer and 500W motor and 600Wh battery? And say you want to ride across the bridge, maybe go up to Mt. Tam?
