For some, only the best will do. The next generation of e-bike battery packs is now here with a massive 52 Volts. This higher voltage pack adds more speed and more torque than you ever thought possible from the geared hub motor. The RipCurrent S is the first production fat bike to fully take advantage of the new 52V standard.

Powerful 1000W 48V brushless hub motor that allows up to 45 KM/H top speed. Motor Specifications: 48v / 1000w / 470rpm. 1x Powerful 1000W 48V brushless hub motor. The kit includes motorized wheel (not inculdes the tire), motor controller, speed throttle, power break lever, wire harness, Pedal assist sensor.

Some of the less expensive e-bikes used bulky lead acid batteries, whereas newer models generally used NiMH, NiCd, and/or Li-ion batteries, which offered lighter, denser capacity batteries. Performance varies; however, in general there is an increase in range and speed with the latter battery types.

eBay determines trending price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. “New” refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and “Used” refers to an item that has been used previously.

In all examples I will apply the statutes to a “typical e-bike hubmotor kit”.  The example will be a direct drive hubmotor, 20 amps 36V controller, and 36V battery.  The kit is then installed on a typical bicycle, with two rim brakes , seat, and multi-speed shifter. Upon assembly and testing, the bike is capable of traveling 23-MPH on flat ground with no pedaling. The rider is an adult male, and  weighs 180 pounds.

Your product will be shipped to its final destination to arrive in 2 business days or faster. If your order is placed before the 11 a.m. PST cutoff time, then it will ship that day and arrive 2 business days later. If your order is placed after the 11 a.m. PST cutoff time, we will do our best to process it the same day but may need an extra day.

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 can extend that dramatically.

The top three e-bikes are the Gocycle GS, The Jetson Adventure, and the Propella E-Bike. All three e-bikes are very different. The Gocycle is futuristic and looks like someone in SoHo, NYC or in Silverlake, Los Angeles would ride it to a trendy shop. It does it in style, won’t force you to relearn how to ride a bike, and certainly has a unique look going for it.

This past July 1st we moved our location to Croydon, PA and doubled our space. Additionally we’re looking to hire at least 2 additional employees!

We would like to thank every single one of our customers, partners, associates and fans for your…

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. It comes with a two-year warranty, which helps justify the expense of a new bike. Motor speeds top out at 20 miles per hour, and it lasts for a long time—up to 85 miles! At 50 pounds, it’s one of the lightest models available; making it more reasonable to pedal on its own if the battery wears out mid-ride.

The multi-speed option is equipped with a  Shimano Altus 7-speed derailleur and shifter system. It adds about 2 lbs (1 kg) of weight and requires occasional BASIC maintenance. However, it provides the benefit of incline and long distance riding without the need for electric assist.

Interestingly, it appears that if I wanted to, I could also ride it as a moped. In the example, 36V makes it go 23-MPH.  With 48V, it would go about 28-MPH, and have about one and a half horsepower.  As a moped, note that it does not require the bike to have pedals.  As a motorized bicycle, it IS required to have fully operable pedals.

Build Your Own Electric Bicycle by Matthew Slinn. TAB Green Guru Guides/McGraw-Hill, 2010. Introduces electric bikes and their benefits, discusses safety and legal issues, then goes on to explain how to build a bike with a hub motor kit. Also covers repair, maintenance, and more advanced projects.

I wasn’t sure I would be able to do this ride. But I had no problem at all. I used an e-bike and kept up with the group and had a ball! Everyone on the ride was wonderful and fun to be with. If you aren’t sure you might be up for a ride through Spain, think again. Anyone can do it using an e-bike. I can’t wait to do my next trip!! Hum, where shall I go?

Size: Some electric bikes look a little small, but if you’re going to drive to the edge of the city and ride the last couple of miles, a light, folding model that you can easily throw in the trunk has definite advantages.

Set the maximum speed limit of the throttle or pedal assist system. We can electronically lockout the speed to 20 mph to comply with states with Class 1 or Class 2 E-bike regulations. Just make this request in the notes section at checkout.

Nicolas Zart Nicolas was born and raised in the world of classic cars of the 1920s. It wasn’t until he drove an AC Propulsion eBox and finally a Tesla Roadster that the light went on. Eager to spread the news of that full torque, he started writing in 2007 for various CleanTech outlets. Since then, his passion led to cover renewable energy, test drives, podcasts, shoot pictures, and film for various international outlets both in print and online. Nicolas offers an in-depth look at the e-mobility world through interviews and the many contacts he has forged in those industries. Today he focuses most of his writing effort on CleanTechnica, a global online outlet that covers the world of electric vehicles and renewable energy. His favorite tagline is: “There are more solutions than obstacles.”

  So what is my example e-bike in California?  Looking at the section for motorized bicycle, it’s less than 1000W, check.  It’s capable of 23-MPH, fail.  We talked earlier about how to make it pass in Texas, and the same things could get it to pass in California. But the last one is new, “Incapable of increasing the speed past 20-MPH…”  What does that mean?  It does not seem to me that it means you can’t motor to 20-MPH, then pedal to go faster.  It’s the opposite.  It means that if you pedal to 20-MPH, the motor won’t add any more speed than you have from pedaling. The example e-bike does not do that, so check.

One last thing to consider is your very local laws. Counties, Parishes, Towns, Cities and even park managers, can also regulate bikes, e-bikes, mopeds, etc at the local level. You may have local laws about mopeds or motor vehicles on the, hiking, bike or multi-use trails for example. Pay particular attention to the exact wording of the signs if any.  “No Motor Vehicles”, does not ban an e-bike IF, your state does not define an e-bike as a motor vehicle.  If a sign says “No Motorized Vehicles”, then your e-bike is a lot more likely to fit that definition and not be allowed on the trail.  Local differences exist. Your multi-use beach path at home may be OK, but cross a city border, and some entirely different rules may be in effect for the paths.
