  • Consumer Reports - Best Electric Bikes From Consumer Reports' Tests (March 2022) This link is included for completeness, but frankly their review is still disappointing. As of 2022, CR is way behind the curve on e-bike reviewing. They have now made good ebike specific testing categories, but include no text description of why any of the 17 ebikes reviewed got the rating it did. and they still do not not yet cover cargo bikes. I expect more from CR. Their Electric Bike Buying Guide, however, provides a good discussion of how to think about shopping for, comparing and buying an ebike.
