  • Electric bikes provide a variety of benefits, including reduced carbon footprint, improved fitness, and faster commuting times. Class 1, 2, and 3 electric bikes offer varying levels of assistance, making them suitable for a wide range of riders and riding styles.

What type of electric bike is right for me?

  • The type of electric bike that is right for you depends on your riding needs and preferences. If you plan to ride mostly on paved roads and bike paths, a class 1 or 2 electric bike may be a good choice. If you need more speed and performance, a class 3 electric bike may be a better fit.

Electric Bike Maintenance Guide

As with any bike, ebikes require regular maintenance to stay safe and fun to ride. Regular maintenance of any bike is key to ensuring the best possible performance and reducing wear and tear on systems. Ideal service intervals vary depending on use conditions. Here's what you can expect to perform while owning an ebike:

Routine Maintenance:

  • Inspect the bike before each ride for signs of improper alignment, security, and function.
  • Clean the bike as needed with a moist rag and non-corrosive biodegradable cleaners.
  • Perform maintenance checks once a year by consulting a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic.
  • Replace brake pads as needed, especially on heavier ebikes.
  • Inspect the paint as needed, and use touch-up paint to prevent rust.

Bike Maintenance Schedule:

  • After break-in period of 50–100 miles: have a certified, reputable bike mechanic perform a thorough tune-up.
  • Weekly, 100–200 miles: check hardware for proper torque, drivetrain for proper alignment and function, wheel trueness and spoke tension, and frame for any damage.
  • Monthly, 250–750 miles: check brake pad wear, alignment, and the brake lever tension, proper shifting and derailleur cable tension, chain stretch, and shifter cables for corrosion and fraying.
  • Every 6 months, 750–1250 miles: inspect drivetrain, all cables and housings, have a standard tune-up by certified, reputable bike mechanic, and replace brake pads, tires, and cables and housings if necessary.

Bike & Chain Cleaning:

  • Clean your bike regularly to keep it in safe and working order and extend the life of the bike and its components.
  • Riding on the beach or in coastal areas exposes your bike to salt, which is very corrosive and can damage electrical and mechanical components.
  • Follow the recommended cleaning and maintenance practices to help increase the longevity of your bike when ridden through salty or dirty environments.

Bike Adjustment:

  • Over time, your bike may require adjustments to keep it safe and fun to ride.
  • Check our adjustment guides for brake, derailleur, and suspension fork adjustments.
  • If you are not confident in your ability to perform maintenance or repair tasks, we recommend having the work performed by a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic.

Remember to also consult your bike's owner's manual for recommended maintenance for your specific model.

The speed of an electric bike depends on the motor and the legal limit in your region. In the United States, the limit is typically 20-28 mph for electric bikes with pedal assist and a throttle. 

When choosing an electric bike, it's important to consider the type of electric motor your eBike is equipped with, as it can significantly impact your riding experience. Electric bikes are powered by either a mid-drive or hub-drive electric motor, each with its own set of pros and cons.

Mid-Drive Motors: A mid-drive electric bike has the motor placed at the center of the bike, between the pedals. Power is transferred directly to the chain, which spins the rear wheel. One of the main advantages of mid-drive eBikes is their superior ride quality. Mid-drive systems use a torque sensor that distributes power in direct proportion to the amount of pressure being applied at the pedal, resulting in a natural and organic ride experience. Another great advantage of mid-drive ebikes is their efficiency. For example, our Gazelle mid-drive electric bicycles provide a max average of 70 miles range on a single charge, compared to approx. 40 miles range per charge with hub-drive systems. This is because mid-drive systems work synergistically with the bike’s gears for higher efficiency, translating into longer riding range per charge. Mid-drive eBikes can be pricier than hub-drive bikes, but are built with higher-quality components and are a more long-term investment.

Hub-Drive Motors: In a hub-drive electric bike, the motor is placed at the center (hub) of the rear wheel. Power is delivered directly to the rear wheel via a cadence sensor, providing electric assist in an all-or-nothing fashion. The immediate surge of power can make for a less than natural-feeling ride experience, although some riders don't mind this mode of power delivery. One advantage of hub-drive bikes is that they are often equipped with both pedal assist and a throttle, providing flexibility to riders. Additionally, they are a great value, typically fitting in the $2,000 and under price point.

Ultimately, the type of electric motor that is best for you depends on your riding needs and preferences. If you prioritize a natural ride experience, longer riding range, and quality components, a mid-drive electric bike may be a better fit. If you prioritize affordability and flexibility, a hub-drive electric bike may be a better option for you.

 

When purchasing an electric bike, it's important to evaluate the core components that your bike is equipped with. Here are some key components to consider:

Brakes: Most eBikes are equipped with either mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes. Hydraulic brakes utilize hydraulic fluid to apply pressure to the brake pads, providing superior stopping power and greater braking precision compared to their mechanical counterparts. This makes them a better option for heavier eBikes, which require more braking energy due to their weight. While hydraulic brakes cost more and may require additional servicing, we believe the extra cost and maintenance is worth the added safety and performance benefits. Mechanical brakes, on the other hand, are a cheaper and more cost-effective option, although they do not provide as strong of braking power. Typically, lightweight eBikes will utilize mechanical brakes, while heavier eBikes will use hydraulic brakes.

Electric Motor: There are two types of electric motors found in eBikes: cadence sensor and torque sensor. Cadence sensors provide electric assist in an all-or-nothing fashion, while torque sensors distribute power in direct proportion to the amount of pressure being applied at the pedal. While cadence sensors are more common and affordable, they can make for a less natural-feeling ride experience. Torque sensors, on the other hand, provide a more natural and organic ride experience, but come at a higher cost.

Battery: The battery is one of the most important components of an eBike. When purchasing an eBike, it's important to consider the battery capacity and range, as this will impact the distance you can travel on a single charge. Additionally, it's important to consider the type of battery and its overall durability and lifespan.

Frame: The frame is another important component to consider. The material and design of the frame can impact the weight, stability, and durability of the bike. Aluminum frames are lightweight and affordable, while carbon fiber frames are even lighter and provide more shock absorption. Steel frames are heavier but offer excellent durability and stability.

Ultimately, the components you should prioritize when purchasing an eBike depend on your riding needs and preferences. If you value safety and performance, hydraulic brakes and torque sensors may be worth the extra cost. If you prioritize affordability, mechanical brakes and cadence sensors may be a better fit for you.
