Best Single Speed Electric Bikes [Top 7 E-Bikes]

If like many, you’re looking to branch out into the world of electric bikes, but want a more straightforward bike mechanically, then a single speed e-bike may be the one for you.

They may be hard to come by, but rest assured there’s still a solid selection of the best single speed electric bikes to choose from.

Benefits of a Single Speed Electric Bike

The biggest benefits of having a single speed electric bike is that they are (just like other single speed bikes) lower maintenance, and therefore easier and cheaper to maintain.

Additionally, if you live in a flatter area, gears aren’t always needed and therefore add extra weight. Thus, single speed electric bikes tend to be lighter than standard e-bikes.
