Electric bikes: everything you need to know



We love electric rideables. Hoverboards, skateboards, scooters, motorcycles, mopeds, unicycles, tricycles… You name it, we’ve ridden it. But electric bikes belong in a category of their own because they are more than just a fun tech fad. They could actually be the future of transportation. That said, there’s a lot to choose from out there, and you don’t want to get fooled, so here’s what you need to know.

Around 5:20 in the video, we say that in Europe, class 1 e-bikes are the most popular. Actually, the most popular e-bikes in the EU are unregulated with motors rated at 250W.

    Did readly get the point of this video. Thought there would be more of pointing out all the different parts and up and downgrades . Thought it should have been pointing out the parts about the bikes instead of showing people riding them around and who is buying what , so I give it a thumbs down.

    Sorry, but "Watt-Hours" is definitely not the number of Watts that can be delivered in an hour, in the context of this application.

    Thanks for putting together this primer. I found it pretty useful in helping me understand the e-bike landscape a little better.

    Just so people in the UK know: Unless your electric bike complies with the EAPC Regulations, which specify the motor power – must be less than 250 Watts; the speed – limited to 15 mph; and the need for pedals – that means no e-scooters – they can only be ridden on private land with the owners permission. If they do not comply, then on public land they are classed as motorcycles and must be registered, plated, taxed and insured, and you must have a minimum licence, wear an approved helmet and can only be used on public roads – never cycleways !
    You take the risk, ignorance is no defence. If you do get caught, you risk having points on your licence and you will have future insurance problems – and premium loading !
    I have ridden a (compliant) e-bike for ten years or more.

    What about recommendations for those of us looking to buy our First ebike. The last time I owned a bike was about five years ago. It was a “Giant” brand. I exercise daily ; am 52 and was thinking of buying a compact foldable ebike but which one?!

    If I was American I absolutely would not care about e bikes, unless you live in new York cars are pretty much for free in there

    I commute by eBike and did so all through winter rain or shine in Seattle, there were few days I didn't ride my bike to work since I got it. It's the best way to get around smaller cities.

    UK is like US on cycles, the electric cycles are still to expensive to buy but are getting cheaper as the tech gets better.

  9. corynardin

    There are so many laws in the US that need to change in order for anything other than cars to be a viable transportation method. Starting with citizens united.

    I was going to say dude then you just corrected yourself electric bikes have been around before the combustion engine motorcycles bikes

  11. Darren Leck

    I'm getting total mixed messages when looking into these bikes in the UK…. Can I actually get a bike that goes over 15mph??? Would definitely love it if you could.

  12. Lukas

    Sorry for the obvious question, but I didnt really get the point whats the main difference (practical) between a normal bike (say city) and an e-bike? Is the pedal pushing and riding easier than on a normal bike? Or you can just push a button and ride without needing to even push the pedals, like for example like on an electric scooter?
