Ask MBAction: Going Electric
I’m looking to sell my Giant Trance and give the e-bike thing a shot. After I get home from work, I don’t have much time to load up and drive to my local trails, but with an e-bike, I figure I could ride right from my house without wasting energy on the road. Any recommendations on what bike I should buy?
Well, if you want to stay within the Giant family, you could look into the Trance E, an electric bike designed to have a similar feel to the non-motorized Trance you’re looking to sell. In fact, Giant offers many of its popular models as electric-assist bikes now; however, their designs have been tweaked to accommodate the added weight and power output.

Mountain Bike Action is a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that’s 12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking). It has been around since 1986 and we’re still having fun.
