EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT UNDERSTANDING AND MAINTAINING AN E-BIKE
An e-bike is a bike with an integrated electric motor offering the rider assistance. You control your speed with your feet like a regular bike, but when you push the pedals on an e-bike, a small motor engages and gives you a boost. Assistance can be delivered in two ways:
- Hub assistance — power is sent to a wheel hub for help.
- Pedelec — the power assistance is relative to the amount of energy the rider is putting into the pedals.
