Why Ride an Electric Bike?
The electric bicycle is the transportation of the future - available today. An electric bicycle can replace your 2nd or 3rd car, in some cases even your only car. Your electric bicycle can do a good amount of the trips you're using your car for. Customers use their electric bicycles to go to work on a daily basis, to go across college campus, to go to the tennis court, to go for a joy ride around town or for shopping at your local Walmart. Your electric bicycle can really do most of your trips as well as or even faster than your car.
Make a list of how you use your car. I bet you don't go more than 8 miles 8 out of 10 times and don't have to haul anything but your briefcase, backpack, and a shopping basket of extra stuff. Our new generation electric bicycle is becoming very affordable and is now priced as low as $400 to $1357 for a reliable vehicle.

Electric bicycles are the new way to get around. Electric bicycles will replace your car, bus or train ride for all those shorter distance commutes. Our typical electric bicycles travel at around 18 mph for about 10-25 miles per charge. Electric bicycles cost about $5 worth of electricity a year. Nothing beats driving one of our electric bicycles past a traffic jam. Electric bicycles take away the hills, the headwinds and getting the thing up to speed part. We carry two types of electric bicycles, power-assist and power-on-demand. Power-assist electric bicycles are designed to do 50% of the work for you. This does not seem like a lot but really works great. These electric bicycles are much lighter than power-on-demand electric bicycles - they ride and feel just like a non-powered bike. There are no controls, just ride your bike and the system does the rest for you. What a great way to get back in shape or just help out on hills.
Power-on-demand electric bicycles can climb a hill without any help from the rider. A twist-grip throttle is used to control speed. Power-on-demand bikes are often a bit heavier because of the more powerful motor and battery.
Electric bikes work by assisting your pedaling. Electric bikes are heavy-duty bicycles with an added battery-powered electric motor. Although capable of pushing you along without your help, electric bikes perform noticeably better when you pedal especially with the 24v models. The average "couch potato" can also expect a range of up to 25 miles with minimal effort with a recharge time of about 8 hours. Do you remember that easy pedaling after you get your bike up to speed? That's the cruising feeling you get all the time with an electric bike.
