With both pedal-assist and full throttle at your fingertips, you are in complete control. If you live in an apartment or small house that’s short on space, consider the Kalkhoff, which is one of the lightest and most compact e-bikes on the market, thanks to folding pedals and swiveling handlebars. That makes it easy to store it flush with the wall in a hallway or on the train, and an internally-geared eight-speed hub makes it cleaner than your average bike. It’s also easily adjustable and one-size-fits-all thanks to handlebars and an extra long seat post that both adjust in a snap.

And let’s not forget the economic advantages of owning an e-bike. The annual cost of running a new family car is, on average, about $9,000 per year. Running an electric bike costs around $400 per year. And while filling a gas tank costs around $30, recharging an electric bike battery costs only about 50 cents. A tank of gas may get you further, but not 60 times further! By 1898 a rear-wheel drive electric bicycle, which used a driving belt along the outside edge of the wheel, was patented by Mathew J. Steffens. Also, the 1899 U.S. Patent 627,066 by John Schnepf depicted a rear-wheel friction “roller-wheel” style drive electric bicycle.[7] Schnepf’s invention was later re-examined and expanded in 1969 by G.A. Wood Jr. with his U.S. Patent 3,431,994. Wood’s device used 4 fractional horsepower motors; connected through a series of gears.[8] I used to work as a cyclist rights advocate in Missouri and every time someone told me that stopping at every block is a hassle I’d point them to a legal case where a cyclist ran a stop sign, was struck by a car and killed and his estate had to pay for the damages to the driver.   If somebody in another state from yours tells you the bike he wants to sell you is legal for you to ride, it’s not very likely he knows all...

Lithium manganese batteries are used in the latest Nissan Leaf electric car. It’s claimed they generate more power and last longer. The new Leaf has double the range of its predecessor, but we’ve seen these batteries in very few (and very expensive) e-bikes so far. Mike is a partner and adviser to Electric Bike Technologies. Mike has been a professional investor and salesperson in the financial sector for the past 20 years. “It’s a great space to be in and and I believe there is a lot of upside potential” The first pedal-assisted bicycles appeared in India in 1993. In 2008, the sales of e-bike sales exceeded moped sales. In recent years, 2-passenger and even 3-passenger (two adults and a child) e-bikes were introduced in India.[73] Is my e-bike a moped?   Lets see.  The bike has a 20 amps controller, and 36V battery.  20 amps X 36volts = 720 watts.  One horsepower is about 750 watts. The drive system doesn’t require me to shift.  But wait a minute, the law says “if an internal combustion engine” so that doesn’t matter about the shifting.  Apparently the law understands that other types of motors such as electric don’t have transmissions.  Suppose my electric motor did drive the chain of the bike, and required shifting.  Doesn’t matter, it’s still not an internal combustion engine. Benny offers seamless integration of pedal assist making it the...

Lower the voltage.  Depending on the battery, the first block or two of riding might do the trick.  If your battery drops voltage fast, you might be a lot slower than 20-MPH for 98% of your ride. I’d call that close enough if that is the case.  Or maybe I can just charge my battery to a lower voltage.  Maybe if I charge it to 40 volts instead of the normal 42V-44V, I won’t be quite so fast.  That could work if my battery still gets me going 23-MPH for too long to fudge it. Some people will want their e-bike to appear like a normal bike just to avoid any possibility of having a problem. To me, this is not needed if you are riding a street legal e-bike. But this brings up a persistent problem in some places.  E-bikes that look like gasoline powered scooters. Many riders have encountered police that cannot be convinced that they can fit the legal definition for a bicycle.  Whether they are bicycles or not is defined by the local motor vehicle codes.  Or, they may not.  In some states, there is no such thing as an e-bike defined in the codes.  Either way, you can encounter police who either don’t know their e-bike law, or just ticket you because of their opinion about e-bikes that look like scooters. Cops ticket, Judges...

Whether the terrain is flat or hilly impacts the distance you can travel, as does the weight of the bike, your own weight, the gearing available on the bike, and how much juice you give it. We suggest that a distance of 10 to 20 miles is a realistic expectation. Of course, if you’re prepared to do at least some pedaling, you extend that dramatically. Batteries: Battery packs can be fitted in all kinds of different positions, but often, they are fixed to a rack behind the rider. If you plan on carrying anything, this configuration could be problematic. Battery costs vary enormously. Cheap batteries are available, but you just don’t know what you’re getting. Our advice is to buy only those recommended by the manufacturer. You’ll likely pay between $300 and $500, but the good news is you’ll only be buying one every few years. Seattle E-Bike is honored to announce that Amazon has selected us to participate in its Amazon Employees Extra program.  Our Store and our Products will be featured on Amazon’s internal site, along with quite a few other fine area merchants…. Is my e-bike a bicycle?  It has two tandem wheels, that is, the wheels are one in front of the other, not side by side. It can be propelled by human power.  The question here is, does the law mean propelled only by...
