Electric Bike FAQ’s
A little extra boost can lead to incredible possibilities. When you ride an electric bike, there is no ride too long, no hill to steep and no place your legs can’t take you. Ditch the daily traffic jam, get more exercise and feel great about treading more lightly on the planet. And best of all – have a ton of fun along the way.
How do e-bikes work?
E-bikes are not electric motorcycles. They don’t have a throttle and they require your input to make them move forward. E-bikes use pedal-assist motors, so your effort level determines how much power the motor gives you back. Riding an e-bike is incredibly intuitive and if you can ride a normal bike you can most definitely ride an electric bike.
How fast can an e-bike go?
In Australia, E-Bikes are governed to 25km/h. This means you can still ride them on shared bicycle and walking paths. It keeps everyone safe and extends the run time of your battery.
How far can they go?
The size of the battery, terrain and assistance level of the motor will determine how far you can ride your e-bike. Most e-bikes will get between 40-180km in a single charge.
What e-bikes do we sell?
We sell Trek, Giant, Cannondale, Merida and Specialized e-bikes. All are slightly different but all offer premium battery and motor combination.
