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. 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.
If you’re completely new to ebikes, check out this short video overview and e-book guide that’s free on Amazon if you’ve got Prime. It’s full of pictures and examples to get you acclimated to the space. I’ve also done an in depth video interview about ebikes with my uncle since he has been riding one to work every day for over a year now.
The e-JOE Epik’s 350-watt motor and 36-volt battery will carry you up to 30 miles (in ideal conditions) at up to 20 mph. It’s sturdy, too, with a weight rating of up to 300 pounds. Yet it’s quite light and easy to stow in your trunk or trailer. You can get some exercise (or not), and beat the commuter rush.
In full-electric mode, the Pedego City Commuter Classic Electric Bike is capable of moving at up to 20 mph for anywhere from 15 to 30 miles. There are two further options: power-assisted pedaling or fully “unplugged” riding. Renowned Shimano gears are easy to select. Seldom do we come across a product so universally praised by owners. It’s not cheap, but comments like “Everything I hoped for!” and “Outstanding!” tell us that it’s money well spent.
“We want our bike to be a sexy product, one that everyone will want,” says Daniel Del Aguila, a co-founder of Prodeco Technologies, which is about to open a new factory near Fort Lauderdale. By squeezing efficiencies out of its supply chain, Prodeco sells a number of models for $1,000 to $1,500 that, Del Aguila contends, compare favorably to bikes selling for $2,000 or more.
So my e-bike was a bike before the motor was put on. But it’s not a bike when the motor is turned on. This could be important. If you are not using the motor, EVERY device propelled by human power with tandem wheels is a “bike” except for scooters. It does not seem to exclude carrying a motor you are not using on your “bike”.
Luckily regardless of the laws, I dont hear much about them being enforced anywhere. For example ebikes are completely illiegal in NYC and people still ride them there all the time, and in fact the city has probably the most successful ebike store in the country: nycewheels
Say you’re a responsible 20 mph max rider using proper power, but someone idiot car driver opens their door and you have no time to avoid the whack! You don’t have a helmet on (which is the law in Calif. using power assist). On a regular bike the idiot car driver would be liable for your injuries. Since you weren’t wearing a helmet their insurance rep could argue court you were negligent and broke the law…hence your brain injury was YOUR fault, not the car driver. Same would happen if they discover you monkeyed with the max. speed sensor…or the max power level.
Finally we are getting somewhere. I have a bicycle, check. It has an electric motor, check. I weighed it, and it was 80 pounds, check. When I rode it, it went 23-MPH. Whoops! “Cannot attain a speed of more than 20-MPH”
In a parallel hybrid motorized bicycle, such as the aforementioned 1897 invention by Hosea W. Libbey, human and motor inputs are mechanically coupled either in the bottom bracket, the rear wheel, or the front wheel, whereas in a (mechanical) series hybrid cycle, the human and motor inputs are coupled through differential gearing. In an (electronic) series hybrid cycle, human power is converted into electricity and is fed directly into the motor and mostly additional electricity is supplied from a battery.
Range is a key consideration with e-bikes, and is affected by factors such as motor efficiency, battery capacity, efficiency of the driving electronics, aerodynamics, hills and weight of the bike and rider. Some manufacturers, such as the Canadian BionX or American E+ (manufactured by Electric Motion Systems), have the option of using regenerative braking, the motor acts as a generator to slow the bike down prior to the brake pads engaging. This is useful for extending the range and the life of brake pads and wheel rims. There are also experiments using fuel cells. e.g. the PHB. Some experiments have also been undertaken with super capacitors to supplement or replace batteries for cars and some SUVS. E-bikes developed in Switzerland in the late 1980s for the Tour de Sol solar vehicle race came with solar charging stations but these were later fixed on roofs and connected so as to feed into the electric mains. The bicycles were then charged from the mains, as is common today. While ebike batteries were produced mainly by bigger companies in past, many small to medium companies have started using innovative new methods for creating more durable batteries. State of the art, custom built automated precision CNC spot welding machines created 18650 battery packs are commonly used among Do-it-yourself ebike makers.
This is the half grip twist throttle on the eFlow E3 Nitro electric bike. The throttle is engaged by twisting the throttle; similar to a motorcycle or scooter. This is the most common type of e-bike throttle.
The article clearly states New York CITY – there is NO IMPLICATION regarding New York State… Albany is NOT in THIS PARTICULAR equation. Did you even bother clicking on the link to “New York City made a CITY-wide ban on e-bikes”?
Photo: 1) The hub motor of an electric bike with its workings revealed! Note the thick copper coils of wire that convert electric power from the battery into the movement that pushes you along.

E-bikes can also provide a source of exercise for individuals who have trouble exercising for an extended time (due to injury or excessive weight, for example) as the bike can allow the rider to take short breaks from pedaling and also provide confidence to the rider that they’ll be able to complete the selected path without becoming too fatigued.
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….
“Yamaha is a well-known and respected brand, but the market is already pretty saturated with manufacturers,” Flagg said. “This is a very competitive space. The opportunity for a manufacturer to have a huge impact has probably passed.”
I am in the process of opening a E Bike outfitting business,I have been experimenting with various motor drive systems, hub direct drive motors, hub gear drive, and at last a mid hub drive. I’ m 68years old my first attempt is 1000 w 48 v 15 ah it’s on a Schwinn MTB I’ve put about 750 miles since May of this year , I ‘d like to try a good peddle assist system as mine dose not work properly and the twist throttle has looped me a couple of times, I use the lowest assist level option, on a recent ride I was able to squeeze 62.5 miles out of full charge with the big hub drive, by just nearly cracking the throttle
The Jetson Adventure is a good e-bike for those looking for a sportier light e-bike under $2,000. Finally, our heart-win is the Propella e-bike, designed by a bunch of cool designers and engineers. They nailed it in terms of looks, feel, and performance for a very reasonable price.
PTVshow knows why I want this bike, and see’s exactly the same worry I fear as soon as I get it. However, I don’t think they will enforce the law on responsible riding (unless of course they haven’t met their quota lol) The way I see it simply put, the line where breaking the law comes in is if a Cop is going to detain you for riding. Which is usually in my case if I do anything that is considered “excessive fun” on my vehical. Even though the Ego is above Law limits for watts, (which is stupid because most motors power peaks at different levels than advertised. They can’t prove it if I drive within speed… Cars can go faster too as long as I follow the rules of the road, they shouldn’t have any reason to hassle me. Why would a Cyclist need Signals and brake lights when you can use hand signals? Law says if it’s faster than 32 Km/h it’s motorized and considered in need of registration, insurance, and license. Which I will probably never to carry on the bike, because you shouldn’t need it.
The basics of an electric bicycle are simple. The electric motor propels it, a battery supplies the power, and a throttle provides speed control – although not all electric bikes have a throttle. The difference lies in how these components are arranged and what assistance they give.
I bought an OutlawSS which tops out at 28mph. I tried the “discreet” route as stated above but because of the blood-red color and design of the bike I attracted too much attention. It didn’t matter that I was keeping my (alongside of the road) speed at 15mph, people (probably cycling enthusiasts or just haters) jammed on the brakes to check out wtf I was riding. One passenger (some teenager) even had his smartphone out and was either snapping pictures or getting video. Long story short, the officer that pulled me over said “no” to the bike and advised me to get an off-road sticker from the DNR and I’d be fine on ATV trails. He also said there have been numerous reports of “The guy on the illegal E-bike”. I was polite and got off with a warning. Haters gonna hate I guess.
HR-727 amended the Consumer Product Safety Act, which falls under Title 15 of the United States Code, which is overall entitled “Commerce and Trade” – so it’s very clear from the context that the federal definition of “low speed electric bicycle” is intended to pertain only to commerce and trade (i.e., importing and selling) of e-bikes. HR-727 was intended to place e-bikes under the jurisdiction of the Consumer Product Safety Commission when it comes to establishing safety requirements for e-bikes imported and sold in the U.S. (as opposed to DOT or NHTSA, which handle such requirements for motor vehicles like cars and trucks). Federal law says nothing about where and how e-bikes may be ridden, thus allowing states and local jurisdictions to set their own rules.

“I used to whip around corners on horseback with the wind in my face,” said 27-year-old Marino, who lives in Torrance, California. “It hurt not to have that anymore; not to feel myself riding anything.”
Free to Roam the Road: According to California state law, any pedal-driven e-bike with a max speed of 20 mph can use any of the state’s bike lanes, bike paths, bike trails or off-street bikeways. (E-bikes are still pretty new, so in many areas, the CA law is the accepted standard in absence of local regulations.)
The environmental credentials of e-bikes, and electric / human powered hybrids generally, have led some municipal authorities to use them, such as Little Rock, Arkansas with their Wavecrest electric power-assisted bicycles or Cloverdale, California police with Zap e-bikes. China’s e-bike manufacturers, such as Xinri, are now partnering with universities in a bid to improve their technology in line with international environmental standards, backed by the Chinese government who is keen to improve the export potential of the Chinese manufactured e-bikes.
