Do I need a license to ride an electric bike?
No you don’t need a license, however, electric bicycles must follow the same road rules as regular bicycles.
How fast can I go?
Max assist speed is 25km/h to keep our bikes in line with Australian road rules. This is a fast cruising speed that is easily achieved without working hard at all.
What about the gears and brakes?
Different modles have different gearing and brake setup. Our Extensive range of E-Bikes cover simple 6 speed gear sets, all the way to 24 speed gearsets tailored to hardcore mountain biking. Majority of E-Bikes on the market come with some form of Hydralic disc brakes. These disc brakes allow the bike to come to a sudden stop with ease, and prevents brake fade as they cool so quickly.
Where can I legally ride an electric bike?
An electric bike can be ridden anywhere a regular bicycle can be as long as the motor is no greater than 250w and power cuts out at 25km/h, all E-Bikes we carry comply with the 25km/h limit. Whether it’s on the road, bike paths or trails, electric bikes and regular bikes share the same road space, bike lanes or dedicated riding pathways.
How far can I go?
Range depends o battery size, rider weight and power usage. A handful of our merida bikes can easily exceed 90km of range!
Can I take one for a test ride?
We highly recommend test riding an electric bike as they are all different from one another. Come in store today and go on a solo or guided test ride.
How do I charge the battery?
Simply plug the charger into a normal 240v power outlet. The removable batteries can be left charging overnight and won’t burn out. Charging takes between 4-6 hours.
Is there a warranty?
All of our bicycles are sold with a full, 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, including electrical components and batteries, and 2-years on the bike frame.
What material is the bike made of?
Majority of our E-Bikes are made of Aluminium Alloy with a handful being made of High-strength Carbon Steel Frame. The front fork is also made of High-strength Carbon Steel and packed with premium comfort shock absorption.
