What are the hottest brands of 2022? Which urban bikes do you find best? Which e-bike motor convinced you this year? And in which e-car do you want to be on the road? We have the answers – your answers!

First off, we want to thank you all again for your participation, engagement and trust! The fact that more than 16,000 bikers around the world answered up to 50 individual questions and provided us with such detailed feedback can’t be taken for granted! All the more so when we consider that the average time to complete the survey was over 15 minutes! In turn, from the very bottom of our hearts: grazie mille, muchas gracias, tack, merci beaucoup, どうも, dzięki, obrigado, спасибо, hvala, teşekkürler, 谢谢你, شكرا, děkuji, vielen Dank, hartelijk bedankt, thanks a lot!

But what exactly do we do with your responses? The results of our reader survey provide significant input into our editorial planning and the future direction of our magazine. It also allows us to select the most relevant brands for our group tests. As much as we would like to review every single bike out here, we can only pick so many. Finally, your feedback helps us determine the most relevant price points for our tests. As you can see, our readers really are an integral part of our editorial planning.
