F.A.Q.'s

1)     How much does an e bike/electric bike cost?

 At E-Go we pride ourselves on providing quality electric bikes at an affordable price. Our bikes range in price from $995 - $3,500 with them having  Samsung Lithium batteries and Shimano gear systems.

 

2)     What is the ongoing cost associated with maintaining your e bike?

 An e-bike is one of the cheapest modes of transport available and with a little ongoing care and maintenance  they can last you a very long time. On average each charge of the battery is 10-15 cents, the bike will also need an annual service (similar to how a regular bike is serviced). Finally the battery will need to be replaced after approximately 1000 charge cycles.

 

3)     What are the different types of e bikes available?

 At E-Go we have three main types of e bikes.

  •  Foldable - This is perfect for people who need to pack away their bike regularly e.g. to take away on a holiday
  • Commuter - These bikes look very much like a regular bike with the battery discreetly placed on the frame
  • Step through - As the name suggests this bike makes mounting and dismounting far easier than a traditional bike.

 

4)     What is the benefit of using an e bike over a regular bike?

 An e bike has all the benefits of a regular bike with the added feature of pedal assist. Pedal assist provides electrical assistance to the rider when needed. e.g.when riding up a hill.

 

5)     How long will an e bike last?

 With proper care and maintenance an e bike can last for a lifetime. The main item needing to be replaced is the battery, however if looked after correctly can last up to 1000 charge cycles. The length of a charge cycle is extremely dependent on a number of variables such as on terrain, speed and use. For this reason it is very difficult to determine the overall lifespan of a battery. Having said this as a general guide an e bike battery can last from 3-5 years before losing efficiency. Similar to a regular bike an e bike will need to be routinely serviced to optimise its life span.
