New Year’s Resolution – Get Your Pedal Assist On!
With 2019 in full swing, we challenge you to get outside more this year and explore your city, town or neighborhood on an Electric Bike Company cruiser.
When the Electric Bike Company cruiser came along, we captivated the engineering and design world with our first bike that was released in 2016. Although it appears to be a regular beach cruiser, our cruisers stealthily pack a 1300W electric motor that can transport you to your destination in a snap. Unlike other motorized bikes that are often designed heavy and with a high learning curve, our electric bikes are easy to operate and designed with your leisure, comfort and lifestyle in mind.
Behind the Bike
Riding an Electric Bike Company bike is easy and a ton of fun. However, there are a few things you should know about how to ride it properly.
- Riding our bike is relatively the same as riding a regular bicycle – with the addition of a motor, battery and computer. So, if you know how to ride a normal bicycle you can get used to riding ours in minutes.
- There are 3 ways to propel our bikes.
Pedals: Use your legs to pedal, just like any other bicycle.
Throttle: The throttle propels the bike by increasing the power that is sent to the motor. Electric Bike Company bikes only feature a thumb throttle, which is easy to use and leaves less risk for accidental acceleration compared to other types of throttles – maximizing your safety.Pedal Assist System or PAS: Our Pedal Assist System measures how fast you are pedaling and uses the electric motor to assist you by giving you more power. Basically, when pedaling, you can go about twice as fast when pedaling compared to a normal bicycle. This also increases the battery range on your e-bike by 20 to 50 percent.
- Brakes are important: To make sure your brakes are the safest they can be, we build our bikes with hydraulic disc brakes that feature safety electrical motor disconnect wiring. Since Electric Bike Company bikes are faster than traditional bicycles, we build all of our bikes with reliable brakes that won’t rust, decay, eventually snap or fail.
Other than these basic differences, riding an Electric Bike Company e-bike is just like riding a normal bicycleand only takes a few minutes to get used to and understand.
And for some extra fun while riding your Electric Bike Company bicycle, stand on the pedals and use the thumb throttle. You won’t see the bike under you, so it will make you feel as if you’re flying. That just one option of the many fun ways to ride an electric bicycle.
