Frequently Asked Questions

What is an e-bike? What is a converted e-bike?
An e-bike is a bicycle that includes an electric motor powered by a battery. Most e-bikes have pedal-assist, which means the motor helps you pedal depending on the level of assistance you choose. Your legs feel bionic! Some e-bike models also offer a throttle button, so you don’t even need to pedal.

A converted e-bike is a conventional bike with an electric motor and battery installed. Different types of conversion kits are mid-drive, front hub, and rear hub - these describe where the electric motor is. Conversion kits can be installed on most conventional bikes. Watch the video above for more info on e-bikes!

What is the benefit of an e-bike?
E-bikes are incredible. You ride an e-bike like a conventional bike, but less effort is required to go the same speed and distance. Or you, can go farther and faster with the same amount of effort. Either way, you get from A to B with no sweaty armpits, less out-of-breath, and tons of fun. With an e-bike, you can replace a second car or even your only car. Cargo e-bikes can carry your kids, your groceries, and you can even add a trailer to haul a couple hundred pounds of gear.
