Roi Katziri replaced his NIS 500 bike with one that cost NIS 4,250. "When they asked me if I wanted to ride an electric bike, I didn't think twice. I drive to work and back every day, so the opportunity of having fun riding a bike without breaking a sweat seemed delightful."

Katziri says he was disappointed because the bike he got was pretty conservative and gray-looking.

"But I was really impressed with how comfortable they are to ride, especially on the new bike paths they've paved along the Tel Aviv promenade," he adds.
