I've been thinking of buying an e-bike and I'm wondering what resources others have used to research buying one? So far I've determined what I want it for (commuting and some day touring of the local area) and that I'd prefer something on the lighter side to make getting it in and out of the house easier.
There are loads of ebike retailers in NZ now but outside of the big brands (Giant/Specialized/Trek/etc) there seems a pretty limited selection of bikes. I found this brand that's sold out of Australia https://www.lekkerbikes.com.au/product/amsterdam-gt-enviolo-... but I'd rather buy here as it'll make servicing and support a lot easier.
I'm also wondering what's the best time to buy. Are 2022 models coming along shortly? Will there be supply-chain issues still? And does Black Friday/November make a difference in terms of getting a deal?
