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.
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.
