The choice of a bike will influence many factors: function, maintenance, maintainability, ease of use, etc. You also need to decide on the type of bike: electric or classic? Oftentimes there are both because clients like variety.
Design and look
In our sophisticated opinion, the "perfect bike" (classic or electric) for sharing is a cruiser with a low frame and a great seat for long walks. It must be bright enough to be visible in an urban environment.
Often, these bicycles are equipped with a telephone holder and a shopping basket. The weight of the bike should be lightweight and the rims and tires should be strengthened. Don't forget that a sharing bike must be equipped with lighting equipment. This is usually required by local laws, and it is also convenient for users and allows them to use the bike at night.
Features of electric bicycles
Based on the experience of our clients, it is best not to save on bikes and to take the best models. These include the following:

These and other top-of-the-line electric bikes should have good battery capacity and therefore a long range. Also pay attention to the performance of the battery, or rather the component maker. If the battery is assembled on Samsung or LG elements, that is a sign of quality. If the manufacturer doesn't say it, then most likely the manufacturer is a no-name company, which means there is no guarantee that the battery will be good.
Also important is the ability to replace the battery if it breaks down. Therefore, bikes with an integrated battery in the frame are not suitable for sharing.
The engine power should be between 250 and 500 watts. This is enough to reach a speed of up to 25 km/h. In general, it is not worth adopting powerful models, as local authorities still limit speed. And the last thing is the presence of the LOT module and the lock.
In addition, when you order a fleet of bicycles, it is worth ordering spare parts for them immediately. That is usually an extra 30% increase in the budget.
