This is Your Brain On E-Bikes
As congestion worsens in our cities, the solution for our personal sanity and our collective benefit, is to get cars off the road. Find out how a Junto e-bike can save you money and time and reduce stress in your life.
Thinking of buying an electric bike? Commuter e-bikes like Junto are a practical alternative to driving that is both more efficient and more fun. And since Americans waste almost 7 billion hours in traffic every year, we need a way out of the car. E-bikes have all the benefits of biking without all the sweat; although 67% of cyclists said they needed a shower after a standard bike trip, 74% didn’t need a shower after riding their e-bike.
More than 80% of survey respondents agreed that electric bikes functionally replace cars
Once you’re out of the car and in the bike lane, the savings are substantial. More than 80% of survey respondents agreed that electric bikes functionally replace cars (League of American Bicyclists), so you can save time and money on commuting and everyday driving. On average, traffic forces travelers to allow 48 minutes for a trip that would otherwise take 20. At a consistent 20 mph, ebikes let you skip the gridlock so you can get to work faster and pumped up from the ride, not worn down from the traffic. Plus, parking is free! Park anywhere and take Junto’s detachable battery into work to charge.
Cut Your Commute In Half

Trevor was able to cut his commute time+cost in half!
...Now to the good stuff, the financial benefits I've seen from riding my bike. I previously had three options for getting to work in the morning:
- Taking the bus to and from work. Daily Total: $5.50; Monthly Total: $110
- Taking a Lyft Line/Uber Pool to and from work. Daily Total (on average): $12; Monthly Total: $240
- Taking a Lyft/Uber to and from work.
Daily Total (on average): $24; Monthly Total: $480I was generally running a pretty equal mix of the three, so I averaged the monthly total for my transportation savings: ~$275/month. Woohoo!
Now running through the time difference between the different options:
- Bus: 50 minutes door to door
- Lyft Line/Uber Pool: 40 minutes door to door
- Lyft/Uber: 30 minutes door to door
When I ride my Junto I am door to door in 20 minutes!
Even riding my bike half the time I'm looking to recoup my investment after 7 months
