eBIKE TUNE UP
Electric bicycles compared to push bicycles take slightly more maintenance as they encompass many mechanical moving parts, motors and electrical systems that often fail – As do all electronics over time, which need replacing.
Electric bikes are designed to help you go faster and farther, making cycling in general more enjoyable – Meaning these types of bikes are taken on longer rides or cruises, collecting many kilometers along the way.
These mechanical components are under higher levels of stress from the power and torque of the motor, creating more wear and tear on chains, cassettes, and wheels that may require service more frequently based on the high kilometer ranges that these bikes travel.
FAQs About eBIKE Repair
Why would I use an eBIKE over a regular bike?
eBIKEs get you to where you need to go faster and easier than on a regular bike. Depending on how you choose to ride eBIKEs can travel up to 32 km/h or more with the pressure of one finger! Climbing hills is a breeze… and we aren’t talking about the breeze from huffing and puffing.
That might seem counter intuitive since you can go faster than on a regular bike, but you also get an easier start from stopped positions, allowing you to get through an intersection steadier and quicker. When climbing steep hills with cars nearby you can focus more of your energy on controlling the bike instead of propelling the bike.
Ditch the car?
Let’s not forget about the fact that biking is fun and the speed of an electric bike make it an alternative to an automobile more often than a regular bike. Studies have shown that eBIKE owners ride more frequently and farther than when they relied on their traditional bike. This was the case for all ages. The benefits of eBIKEs is they are able to provide a fun transportation method for almost anyone, making it much more easy and accessible to create a bike riding experience that anyone can enjoy.
Respiratory issues, hips problems and other common signs of aging certainly does not stop anyone from owning an eBIKE. It allows people to still remain mobile, and go-about their day as normal. Transportation is becoming more difficult with the price of gas, cars and insurance.
Let’s help you switch to an eBIKE today! The average city commute is less than 8km making it totally realistic to ride to work instead of taking the car. Incorporating a fun and fast type of exercise in your morning routine is a great way to start the work day!
Let’s take a minute to consider the cost effectiveness of riding an electric bike instead of taking a car to work each day. An electric bike costs about 10 cents a day to “fuel” up, while a car costs $7 a day. The savings are incredible while biking faster than ever before. Insurance is not necessary on eBIKEs and can save you thousands when it comes to repair and insurance costs over the long term. An eBIKE that is properly maintained can last years with proper care and attention.
How much does it cost to service my bike?
There are 200 different technical services that we offer to fully service any bike from start to finish. Every bike is different and will require different levels of attention based on the condition overall. Typically a bike would benefit most from a Basic Tune Up covering all the necessary checkpoints to get you back on the road.
A simple repair could cost as little as 10$ for a headset adjustment, to upwards of hundreds of dollars for more extensive and labour intensive repairs.
Do I need a license?
No. As long as the eBIKE is programmed so that it can’t go more than 32km/h without pedalling, there is no need for a license. . FYI – you must be at least 16 years of age to operate an eBIKE in public places.
Aren't electric bikes heavy?
As one of our customers told us, “eBIKEs might be heavy to lift, but they are heavenly to ride.”Electric bikes are typically heavier than regular bikes. But the weight of any bicycle (electrical or non-electrical) is felt the most when climbing hills.
The electric assist on an eBIKE makes up for the additional weight many times over. Where weight does matter is if you need to lift the bike.
That’s one of the many reasons why eBIKEs are favoured over moped style eSCOOTERs, which often weight 150 pounds or more. If you have to climb several flights of stairs to store your bike, we strongly suggest finding a more accessible storage location.
Can I ride an eBIKE as a regular bike - without the electric power?
Yes. And it is easy to switch back and forth. For example, you might want to use the power only when you are going up hills.Do I have to pedal? It depends on the eBIKE. Some electric bikes sold in North America allow you to operate by simply turning the throttle without pedalling.
If you think you’ll get by without pedalling, think again. Even for eBIKEs that have a throttle, you’ll need to pedal when going up long, steep hills, although you won’t have to pedal hard. Pedalling is more fun, extends the range of your battery, extends the life of your motor, and extends your own life too.
Many people think they cannot ride and eBIKE. This totally untrue. Many companies have released different models or eBIKE kits that have a throttle button for power and a powerful enough motor, therefore no need to ride or pedal at all. This makes it extremely easy for people with mobility issues and older riders who may have difficulty pedalling.
Should I buy a bike with a mid-drive motor or hub-motor?
They both have their benefits, it’s usually easier to change a flat tire with a mid-drive and mid drive are more comfortable to ride as most of them rely on a torque sensor where hub motor only use a rotation sensor.
Typically hub style motors are less expensive, and more reliable. Mid drives motors are always more expensive and they tend to center the weight much better too. Mid drive motors will wear the chain quicker and put stress on the drivetrain whereas hub motors stress the wheels and spokes.
The real test of determining which type of motor is best for you is to ride both and compare.

FAQs About eSCOOTER Repair

This can vary drastically on how much your eSCOOTER gets used. Typically, a biyearly service plus an inspection at the beginning of the season is a good way to start to maintain the life of your eSCOOTER.

It is always better to practice good preventative maintenance measures instead of running into an unexpected problem while in the middle of your ride.
