Buying An Electric Bike: A Complete Guide


Electric bikes or ebikes make riding bikes even more fun for riders of all skill levels. Ebikes are one of the most popular categories of bikes, and are getting popular every year. Riders on electric bikes are able to ride places they never thought possible.

If you're a biker looking to rack up more miles, and ride like you never have before, this guide is for you. The purpose of this blog is to walk you through everything you need to know about buying an ebike.

What's Ebike?
An ebike is not a moped, scooter or motorcycle, an ebike is a conventional bicycle with the addition of a motor, battery and other components that allow the bike to assist the rider and with less effort. It looks and operates very similar to a regular bike, but adds varying degrees of assistance to make the rider's efforts more powerful.

For many, this pedal assist means they are able to expand their riding options and explore previously unreachable paths. They can ride farther, overcome steep hills that used to daunt them, or commute to work faster and easier while having more fun!
 
How can an ebike provide assistance to you?

Ebikes provide a gentle boost to your pedaling. When you press the pedals, the assist function automatically kicks in and gently adds power to your pedals. The amount of assistance depends on the settings you can control on the bike.

Even though they provide plenty of power, the help feels very gentle. Many ebike riders told us they barely noticed the improvement, other than riding easier and more fun. Electric bikes just help make hills look smaller and distances look shorter.

Is riding with ebikes really riding?
Customers often ask us if they still exercise while riding their Magicycle ebikes. The answer is yes!

There have been many studies on the physical exertion of electric bicycles. A study from the University of Colorado Boulder found that electric bikes are an effective form of exercise. Another Norwegian study found that e-bike riders experience physical exertion 95 percent of the time. These studies came to a similar conclusion - you can exercise on an electric bike. We also demonstrated that riding with ebikes is an effective way of exercise.

This is great news for those looking to stay in shape, as this assist will actually give riders who crave more encouragement and confidence to ride farther more often distance to improve their fitness - and there is a style rider for every type of ebike!

What are the main parts of an ebike?
All ebikes have three things that traditional bikes don't.

Motor: A small, compact electric motor that provides power as you pedal.

Battery: The motor runs on a rechargeable battery.

Controller: Usually located on the handlebar, it allows you to adjust the amount of assist the motor gives you, see how much battery power is left, and how fast you're going.

How to ride an ebike?
EBikes are very easy to operate. Even if you are not into the latest technology, you will find them simple to use.

Turn On: As simple as ringing a doorbell; e-bikes have a button that you simply press to turn it on.

Pedal: Once the bike is turned on, hop on and ride. The motor will gently kick-in once you start pedaling.

Turn Off: Most ebikes automatically turn off after a period of inactivity, but they can also be turned off by the same button you pressed to turn it on.

Recharging: An E-bike runs off a rechargeable battery. It can be easily recharged by simply plugging it into an outlet. Most bikes allow you to charge the battery while it’s either still mounted to the bike, or you remove the battery to bring it to your desk or in the house with ease.
