Why Electro bikes

14 Good reasons to buy/have an Electro Bike Kit Fitted to your bike or we supply Custom bike.

1. Hill Climbing
That may sound obvious, but it's the primary advantage. A good electric bike effectively flattens hills, increasing your average speed and eliminating the 'groan' factor when a gradient comes into view. Provided you supply a reasonable amount of effort, you can expect to climb hills of 1 in 10 (10%) on an electric bike with ease, and clear a maximum gradient of 1 in 7 (14%), or much more. In hilly country, the effect is nothing short of miraculous.

2. Safety
It sounds unlikely, doesn't it? But the mathematics is compelling. Think of a steep and busy road, with cars climbing at 60kph. If you previously slogged up the hill at 10kph, but can tackle the same gradient at 20kph with an electric bike, you will see 50% fewer cars, and they will pass you at 40kph rather than 50kph. Or at least, we think that's correct. Whatever the figures, there's no doubt that an electric bike helps to keep you out of danger. The same general principle applies to road junctions - the faster your acceleration, the easier you can change direction when required, and with no need to rush the hills, you won't be tempted to ride downhill at breakneck speed. Theres no doubt that an electric bike will help to keep you on track.

3. Technical Expertise
Our technicians have a high level of knowledge about the features, advantages and benefits of an Electro Bike Kit.

4. Personal Fitness
Surely a conventional bike will/may keep you fitter? That, of course, depends how much - if at all - you use it. Research has found that 46% of conventional bikes are used only once or twice a week, with a further 30% being used once a fortnight or even less. By contrast, a recent survey of electric bicycle owners reveals that a third ride their bike at least once a day and 81% use the bike at least once a week. The figures confirm our experience that an electric bike typically gets used at least twice as often as a conventional machine.
Because riding an electric bike is a great deal more enjoyable in hilly country, into head winds, or when carrying heavy loads, users tend to make better use of them. The motor provides up to half the effort, but more regular use means more exercise for the rider.

5. FREE Safety Check
300 km free safety service with spoke check and adjustment where needed.*

6. No Sweat!
Sweat may not be a serious issue when you're out for a leisure ride, but it's more important if you're cycling to work. Although some employers are rather grudgingly providing showers and other facilities for cyclists, the great majority have no intention of doing so. An electric bike eliminates the problem at source. In hot weather, it's possible to maintain a normal schedule by transferring a bit more load to the electric motor. In colder weather - or if you feel in need of exercise - just throttle back, or turn the motor off.

7. Clean & Green
Electric bikes obviously consume some energy, but a very small amount when compared to a motorcycle or car.

We have the ability to resolve any warranty issues at our premises.

9. Genuinely Sustainable
There's a lot of nonsense talked about sustainability in transport, but an electric bicycle can be made genuinely sustainable. Purchase electricity from a 'green' supplier, or generate your own with a roof-mounted windmill or solar panel array, and the vehicles' fossil fuel consumption will be zero. Surely a conventional bike does that already? Only if you grow the food you consume whilst riding it. Unfortunately, most modern food production and distribution is so fuel-intensive that the consumption of a typical cyclist is not terribly good.

10. Faster travel
In theory a car can average a high speed, but in practice speed often falls below 40kph in cities. The problem is congestion - motorcycles get around this to some extent, but they're still confined to the road network. An electric bike can maintain a higher average speed than a bicycle but take advantage of the same network of cycle facilities, giving access to routes that cars and motorcycles cannot reach. The result is often a faster door-to-door journey time than any other mode. And by taking advantage of the uncongested cycle network, but eliminating hills and headwinds, electric bikes are often the most consistent mode of travel.

11. Assembly and Checks
We fully Kit out, assemble, prepare, check and test your Bike or our supplied bike before it leaves our premises.

12. Resale Value
Electric bikes are a great technology, and they have now been around for many years, but the evidence points to a much better value than a conventional bike. True, a typical electric bike may cost a little more to buy or do they, (Conventional bikes can range from $199.00 to whatever, most good Electric bikes can be from $1500.00 to $5000.00 or kits even lower price.

13. Motorised, but no Red Tape!
You know how it is...Rego due, insurance costs rising year on year. Electric bikes are treated just like ordinary bicycles for legislative purposes, so there's absolutely no registration or legislation to worry about. You are of course free to insure the machine if you wish, but there's no compulsion to do anything but enjoy yourself!

14. They are great fun!!
Feed back from many very happy riders is why did i not have one years ago and from others who have had theirs for years, Yahoo lets ride.
