Electric bikes (e-Bikes) take a standard bike – they can be ridden switched on or off – and adds an auxiliary motor to give that extra oomph. Depending upon your needs, they can increase your distance, help you up hills or provide a sweat-free commute. We stock both 200w (hand-throttle) and the more modern 250w (pedalec) models.We have mid-mount motors from Bosch, Shimano, Impulse and Bafang, as well as a number of front or rear hub mounted designs. Our range includes Gazelle, eZee, Walleräng, and Australia’s Apollo and VelectriX.
There’s many reasons why someone would choose to ride an e-Bike around Melbourne. For many, it’s the sweat-free commute – you can ride in at full speed in your work clothes without the reliance upon a shower once you arrive. (Many then choose to ride home at a low or no assist so they can adjust their level of exercise). For others, it’s that hill they need to get up. Perhaps you’re overcoming injury. Or you’ve lost your license and it’s just too far. Or it’s for those recreational rides you just never seem to have the energy for any more.
Many of our models are great for commuter riding, complete with powerful lights front and rear, full guards and racks to carry your load. Some are oriented towards comfort, whilst others are ensuring they can be as efficient as possible, and easy to ride either with or without electric assist switched on. Consequently, we’re only too happy for you to take a test ride on any of the bikes we have in stock. It’s the best way to ensure the bike is going to suit your unique needs. All of our bikes come with a 2 month and a 6 month service.
