I bought a Giant Sedona hybrid back in 2011 and not really had much use until this year. Like thousands of others, I got the bike out to get some exercise in these lock down days. Changed the tyres to Schwalbe Marathon Original GreenGuard Rigid MTB City Tyre and found I could wizz along and I am really enjoying myself.
I go out 2 or 3 times a week covering between 30 and 60 miles. Now my problem – I am in South Wales where there are LOTS of hills so I am restricted to the same old flatter routes. I am 68 and taking medication for a heart condition and the steeper hills I find tough so I thought an e bike would give me scope to travel further afield. I only want assistance on the steeper hills really. I travel on roads and cycle tracks.
I have a budget around £1000 / £1200 and saw a recommendation here

Some will opt for crappy cable disc brakes and cheap £50/£60 forks.
Have a look at Woosh bikes or something like the NVM Moscow.
for Woosh bikes. They seem attractive at those prices - https://wooshbikes.co.uk/?gran-camino
Anyone have a Woosh with good / bad reviews? Will the 24Kgm weight give me problem if using without power assist on the flat?
Thanks in advance
