Electric Bikes consist of a modified or custom bicycle frame with pedals but include an electric motor, usually in the form of a hub motor, connected to the rear wheel. They allow a rider to either pedal the bike or leverage the power of a battery and motor drive system. Steering, brakes and gears all work as you’d expect on a traditional bicycle. E-bikes help you pedal uphill and face inclines much more easily, and can go up to a maximum of 15 mph on the flat. They can also provide a fantastic mode of transport for those with mobility issues. Overall they just significantly reduce the amount of exertion involved in cycling, especially if you're travelling short distances (which means you can use the electric motor a lot without running out of power). An e-bike (electric bike) has the same components as a standard bicycle, but with battery assisted power. This means that you can cycle with power assistance when needed. You pedal, and the battery supplies an automatic power boost. Three elements make up an e-bike- A battery that you can charge direct into the wall socket like any household device. A motor that provides the power to match your pedalling, and is responsive to your cornering, breaking and speed. A dashboard that provides information on battery level, speed and on/ off switch.
