Information for those not familiar with the various electric bikes available:The Guide to Buying an E-Bike.
There is some misleading claims or info on some sites..such as "Best electric bike". Separate the facts from the hype or the untrue
Your frequently questions about electric bikes answered.
(plus a few more) there are so many good reasons to get an e-bike, especially that e-bikes are...
If instead of driving a car for daily or frequent short trips you ride a bike you can add 10 years of healthy happier life with good mobility, and that's priceless!
...and GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
an electric bike soon pays for itself and so you lose weight for free, and you enjoy riding while being greener.
If you already have a good bicycle convert it into a very good electric bicycle at a very good price with these powerful conversion kits
How and where my electric bikes are tested.
The rules have changed. Read about the new laws.
Some motorised bicycles are powered by an electric motor and some are powered by an petrol fueled motor. A fueled motor with power more than 200 watts (which is less than 1/4 HP and so a very small motor) must be registered as a motorcyle, and that is very unlikely to be possible. Refer
Some worked examples showing you how to workout how much power is needed to go up a hill or at a speed.
The various electric bicycle batteries that are available
What you read about central drive motors is mostly incorrect and misleading. They do have a small benefit, but it is greatly exaggerated by equating torque with power. Do not be mislead. The difference between torque and power is explained with reference to a website promoting e-bikes with a central drive motor. I have a dicussion of central drive motors in my blog. You can comment there.
Technical information : performance curves, technical drawings, wiring diagrams and some external links about batteries and bike repairs
Go easy, go well, go free, on an electric bike..
So many good reasons to get a motorised bike...from Value-e-Bikes
There is an e-bike for every purpose...come, try...at Value-e-Bikes
If you haven't skipped off to see other pages here, or someone else's website
(not that I mind, of course, comparison is welcome)
then here is a run down on the other pages in this site.
I'm David Kemp, and I import and sell these e-bikes (or motorised bicycles, powered bikes, electric bicycles or whatever else you call them)
There are 2 types of electric bicycle :
steel frame + sealed lead acid battery - cheaper e-bikes, but much heavier, and
alloy frame + lithium battery - lightweight e-bikes. I no longer sell the former because most people prefer the lightweight bikes
There are bikes with parts with varying quality. I've found that it pays me to have my bikes assembled with very good quality parts because there will be very few problems and makes me and the customers happy. When comparing, compare well.
If you have any thought that folding bikes are not as sturdy as the ordinary bikes that do not fold I assure you that these folding bikes are sturdy and ride the same as ordinary bikes. Consider their being foldable as a bonus because you can put these in a car or car boot, caravan, cruising yacht, or public transport.
There is a new page for electric wheelchairs. These come from Golden Motors and use a efficient motor.
The e-bike conversion kits can convert most bicycles, even those with centre suspension, into an electric bike with the same power and range as a "made" e-bike. You save on the e-bike, and save on the send cost. The very distinctive Magic Pie motors from Golden Motors are being added for those who want more powerful motors.
I don't have a "buy it" or "add to basket" page because I prefer to talk about your needs and what is best for you, and then to arrange your paying for it, and its delivery...at least until things get too busy
E-Bike testing. I test my e-bikes on a 3km hill climb and a 3km street circuit. This page describes the testing and what information can be got from this.
GENERAL INFORMATION PAGES
These are about electric bikes in general, about how they are good for you, a guide to buying an electric bike, about buying one of mine, and anything else I find people wanting to know.
Please read, and look for anything you want to know, and I hope you do find useful information. If you don't, or if it's not clear then tell me, and I'll add or try to make clearer.
Tell me also if you have interesting items to add. I am happy to put any general information here. I get many emails or phone calls from people wanting to know about the basics I have put here.
FAQ is some pretty basic information, and is being added to.
I do believe electric bikes are good for you and the environment, and put the most obvious reasons here.
Such as that most of your trips are likely to be only a few kilometres that you can easily, cheaply, conveniently do on an e-bike, good for you, and all. You just need one good reason. If not to save $, then maybe to lose weight.... and live a longer, healthier, and happier life
Better than a difficult diet, better than a stationary exercise bike,
at least these weight losers take you somewhere you want to go.
There are many places you can read more...
Or see more...on YouTube
If you still need more convincing then check out a few YouTube vids. I haven't done my own yet but they would be along the same lines as these that others have done...
like how I can get up the hill climb faster than a serious lycra clad road cyclist.
You get the picture! - with these other people's e-bikes and I don't mind you watching them...
if it gets you to buy an ebike and mine will do anything these do, as fast and as good,... and cheaper.
And, if you do do such things then a mention on Twitter, a "Likes it" on Facebook, or thumbs up on Google or whatever on your other favourite social network would be appreciated by this very unsocially networked guy.
There are other pages covering specific topics such as e-bike law in Australia, e-bike power, misleading claims about ebikes, a comparison of folding electric bikes for sale, my bike testing linked in meno at top of page.
