Frequently Asked Questions
How fast can an E-Bike go?
Ebikes have power limitations of 20 mph, keeping you in the same category as a regular bicycle, class 3 high speed pedelec bikes are also available topping out at 28mph but must be activated using pedal assist only. Speeds above these limitations can be reached but entirely on your own power.
How far can an E-Bike go?
This varies with each model and also what you as the rider want from the bike. Some bikes have ranges capable of over 100 miles but this affected how aggressive you ride, rider weight, wind, terrain.
How long does it take to charge the battery?
It can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to charge the battery using a normal AC outlet in your home or garage.
Can I charge the battery by pedaling?
No, a few models do offer regenerative braking, this can be activated when riding faster than motor assist or riding downhill. Kinda like an engine brake but also puts a charge back into battery.
Throttle or Pedal Assist: which is best?
Throttle can be used when no pedaling is desired but longer battery life can be achieved with pedal assist.
What warranty is offered if any?
Warranty varies with each manufacturer ranging from 1 – 5 year. E-Bikes of Holmes County likes to partner with companies that offer a great product as well as technical support.
