Electric bikes have been an exceedingly popular item this year, and Amazon Prime Day has some serious discounts on ebikes from one of the best-known brands in cycling: Schwinn. You can save over $1,000 on a Schwinn Vantage FXe 650b. You could also go with a more affordable model, such as the Schwinn Voyageur for over $500 off.

Schwinn's hub-drive Voyageur is an affordable entryway into ebikes, and this $480 discount makes it even better. The 250-watt Bafang motor sits in the back wheel, so it won't affect handling like a front hub motor, and the battery will let you cruise for up to 65 miles.
There may be more affordable electric bikes on the market, but Schwinn is a long-time bicycle manufacturer, and it's going to be delivering a bike with a dependable build and quality parts (not to mention a warranty).
If you take a close look at the Schwinn Voyageur and Vantage models, you'll see a Shimano gearset and Tektro disc brakes. The motors Schwinn includes aren't just any motors either. The Voyageur models get motors from Bafang, one of the best names in the business. And, the Vantage model features a Bosch motor.
These bikes will get you out on the road or trails with cruising speeds up to the 20mph limit and enough range to go on a solid adventure.
