Pt. 5 – 5 Things to Know About Electric Bikes – Quality and Reliability


So the last thing that you really want to
look for when it comes to electric bikes, is you want to look for the quality of the
bike. If you’re on a regular bicycle you’re
probably are going shorter distances, but on an electric bike you’re going much longer
distance so reliability is really important. Ugh, one of the ways to do that is to look
at the bike itself, and look for like high quality welds, the frame, obviously you want
the frame as one of the most important parts. You don’t want to have an issue with that. You want to look at the motors and make sure
you have a good name brand motor, like ugh, Bafong or Eight Fun, and you want to look
at the types of cells that are in the battery. This battery has a Samsung, or Panasonic or
LG cells in it. So, you want to have a good name brand battery. Ugh, the cheaper no-name batteries that are
a lot less expensive, and will bring the cost of the bike way down, typically will only
last 6 months or a year. So, you want to try to avoid that kind of
stuff. The last thing is the display, which controls
the computer of the bike .Ugh, you know, the computer display. You want to make sure you have a good quality
display. It’s not some cheap piece of plastic that’s
going to break very easily and you wind up having to replace it later. This display, you’ll even notice it has
a USB port on it, so you can plug stuff into it. You know, you look for features like that,
and look for good quality. A Lot of times the quality of the bike is
reflected in the warranty. So, in order to, you know, make sure you’ve
got a good quality bike, you can also look at the warranty of the bike, and how the bike
is going to be serviced and how available parts are going to be for it. Typically, our warranty is one of the best
in the business. With our warranty, ugh, it’s a 3 year warranty
that covers the battery, and we have a 1 year warranty for the rest of the bike; the entire
bike. So, the 3 year battery warranty is basically
if anything happens in the first year, we’ll either repair it or replace the battery for
you. If anything happens in the second or third
year, we’ll either repair it or if we have to replace it then we will pro-rate it.So
you can use that as a good measuring stick against other warranties if you’re look
at other bikes in the industry. So, again you want to look at the welds on
the frame, you want to look for name brand motors, you want to look for name brand cells
in your battery and you want to look for a good high quality display on the bike, and
if have those things you’ll have a good quality, ugh, manufacturer. The last thing is to look for a good quality
warranty. For more information, or to see our entire
