Frequently Asked Questions About E-Bikes
If you want the thrill of biking faster without having to pedal harder, purchasing an E-Bike is the way to go. However, if it’s your first time buying an E-Bike, you may have questions about the whole experience. Unfortunately, as E-Bikes are a niche sector, there are a ton of questions clients have but often find answers difficult to come by.
At Bill-E-Bikes, we want to arm you with the most accurate information available so you can make the right choice when choosing an E-Bike. To do this, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about E-Bikes.
1. Why can E-Bikes only go thirty-two kilometers per hour?
E-Bikes can only be propelled up to thirty-two kilometers per hour due to Provincial safety regulations, and ICBC (Insurance Corporation of British Columbia) classifications (for those in BC). Any two-wheel electric vehicle that can go more than thirty-two kilometers per hour requires registration for insurance and is then classified as a limited speed motorcycle. For more information, please see the “E-Bike Information” section on our website.
2. How far can E-Bikes go?
Every E-Bike is different, and every rider is different. With throttle alone, your mileage will decrease though you should still expect to see at least twenty kilometers per charge. Some of our commuter bikes have a range of up to eighty kilometers per charge, and everything else falls in between. If you live in North Burnaby, you can make it to Downtown Vancouver and back in one charge.
3. What do the battery chargers look like?
The chargers for the batteries are actually quite small, approximately the size of an older laptop or console charging cable with the box on the cord.
4. Where do these bikes come from?
At Bill-E-Bikes, we work directly with our manufacturers in China to ensure you get the best bike possible. When your bike arrives, we personally inspect it and set it up before we deliver it to you.
5. Are E-Bikes challenging to ride?
Riding an E-Bike is very similar to riding a normal bike. The only thing you need to adjust to is the level of propulsion. For beginner riders, we suggest you start with a lower level of propulsion and go from there.
6. Can you still ride and E-Bike if you run out of battery?
Yes! Without power, the bike becomes a heavy bicycle, but it still functions without electricity.
