WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC BIKE?
With regular pedaling, pedal-assist, and (sometimes) throttles on e-bikes, they are the ultimate riding machine. Perfect for fun, commuting, or exploring every street in the city. Depending on the style, these bikes can help you navigate between 20 - 70 miles per charge.
WHAT IS PEDAL ASSIST AND THROTTLE?
Pedal-assist uses sensors to gauge the rider's pedaling & provides assistance accordingly.
Throttles provide on-demand power, giving you a burst of speed when you need it.
Hub-motor e-bikes use a cadence sensor to read the rotation of the pedals.
Mid-drive motors utilize a torque sensor, which reads the riding pressure exerted on the pedals and simultaneously engages the motor in an extremely smooth and efficient way.
ARE E-BIKES ALLOWED ON BICYCLE TRAILS AND THE BELTLINE?
Of course! They are completely legal for trails, paths & the Atlanta Beltline.
CAN YOU RIDE AN ELECTRIC BIKE IN THE RAIN?
Yes- our bikes can handle any sized downpour. Just do not submerge the motor or battery!
ARE THERE ANY WARRANTIES?
All of our Raleigh bikes are warrantied comprehensively for a full-year.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE TO RECHARGE THE BATTERY?
Plug your battery into a regular household outlet.
In 2-3 hours, the battery on almost every model we carry will be good to ride again!
CAN I CHARGE THE BATTERY BY PEDALING?
The battery can only be charged by plugging it into a household wall outlet.
The more you pedal, the further and faster you can go, but pedaling will not charge the battery.
HOW LONG UNTIL A BATTERY NEEDS TO BE REPLACED?
With proper care, the batteries should last 5+ years.
WHAT TYPE OF MAINTENANCE DO ELECTRIC BICYCLES REQUIRE?
Our bikes require the same basic maintenance as a regular bike.
Keep air in the tires to avoid pinch-flats & clean/lube the chain every 75 miles or when needed.
Don’t leave your bike outside all the time! The elements really wear down/rust bike components.
