As a result of their cooperation project, the German bicycle consumer magazine aktiv Radfahren and ExtraEnergy have published an 80-page special edition on electric bikes. It is available in the German news trade, from ExtraEnergy, or here for download (see below).
If you don’t mind that it’s all in German, this special edition is a wonderful collection of information on electric bikes. It includes the results of 28 pedelecs and e-bikes which were tested in the 2008 ExtraEnergy Test. You will also find extensive purchase advice, what you should pay special attention to when test riding, international market reports, new trends, visions and all you need to know about batteries and motors.
Test Results in English
In English language all test results will be published at www.ExtraEnergy.org before the end of July 2008. There are also plans to publish the Electric Bike Special in English language. But no publication date has been settled yet.
Please note: The new test reports also include products which were tested 2007 already. Some of the evaluations in this year\'s test may differ from the ones published in 2007 because they were compared to the products which were new in the 2008 test.
