Electric bike Decathlon pedal motor or rear motor ?

To determine the ideal motor position for your future electric bike, you need to know what you use and what you expect from the electric assistance. 

A pedal motor is the most sophisticated: it delivers electric assistance based on the pressure you apply to the pedals. The harder you push, the more the motor will understand that you need help and the more power it will provide. The strong point of a Decathlon electric bike with a pedal motor (or central motor) is its fluidity, which allows a natural and smooth ride. These bikes are suitable for long distances, nature rides, or in rural areas... This position of the motor is recommended for leisure or sport use.

A rear motor (or hub motor) is located in the wheel. When it is positioned at the rear of the bike, as in Decathlon, it gives the sensation of being pushed. It is a less expensive option and incompatible with integrated gear systems. On the other hand, it is a choice to be privileged if your stops are frequent, in particular in the case of a driving in city. A rear hub motor will allow you to restart quickly, giving you the necessary boost from the first pedal stroke. No more being overtaken after a red light or a stop sign!
