Ebike-Models / Tech / Riding Essentials makes an excellent gift for anyone new to cycling and e-biking. Written by German e-bike expert, journalist, and photographer Martin Haussermann, the book gives a bird's eye overview of e-biking. 

It is not a buyer's guide. The book addresses models, motors, batteries, shopping tips, personalization, maintenance and battery care, riding skills, and the US's e-bike classification system.




Electric bikes open doors for riders young and old, of all physical abilities, from the heart of a big city to remote country roads

Martin is also co-founder of the German bicycle magazine Pressedienst Fahrrad ("Bike News"). It comes as no surprise that the book is German-centric with many Bosch and Riese & Muller's product placements (high-quality photography).

Other contributors include VeloNews tech editor Dan Cavallari, custom e-bike frame builder Lennard Zinn, cycling retail journalist Stephen Frothingham, and Morgan Lommele of PeopleForBikes in the US.

The book is beautifully designed with many full page photos of well-known, high-quality German brands. The format is that of a magazine. Do not expect a traditional book format.
