Are you looking for something that you can still pedal for moderate exercise?
The traditional bicycle style E-Bike is best suited to people who still want to pedal. A bicycle style E-Bike might be your best option if you enjoy cycling but need a little help getting up hills, have health problems that require you to do only light to moderate exercise, or don’t have shower facilities at your arrival destination.
What kind of trips will your E-Bike be mainly used for?
Be sure to check the travel range listed on the model of your choice’s specifications. Do you require lots of storage compartments? Will you be carrying a passenger for many of your trips? If you will be traveling at night you might consider choosing a colour that will be seen well in low light, and/or installing additional lighting systems such as an under-glow package.
How will your E-Bike be stored for the winter months?
If you are unable to store your E-Bike in an enclosed and covered area such as a shed/garage or indoors, an E-Bike with removable batteries is the best option. E-Bikes can be stored outdoors for the winter if it is covered; the batteries are removed, kept indoors, and charged up every 3-4 weeks. E-Bikes with fixed batteries should be stored in a covered and enclosed area for the winter, and charged up every 3-4 weeks to maintain the batteries.

What type tires should you choose?
E-Bike tires come in two main types; tires with tubes and tubeless tires. The difference between these two types is mainly important in regards to flat repairs – tubeless tires can be plugged, while the tire tube must be replaced in the event of a flat on a tubed tire. Another point to consider is the size of the tire. The larger the tire the more power is required to maintain top speed, meaning that the voltage should reflect the tire size.
What type of braking system should I choose?
All E-Bikes sold in Canada must meet a minimum stop time/distance requirement. On scooter style E-Bikes there are two different kinds of braking systems available; drum brakes and disc brakes. Generally speaking, the more powerful and/or heavier models will be equipped with disc brakes as they are more responsive than drum brakes. Drum brakes are suitable for lower voltage, lighter models.
What is the best type of battery for you?
We generally recommend gel lead acid batteries for all of our customers. The lithium options are great for people who are unable to lift their removable lead acid batteries in and out of their bike because lithium batteries are very significantly lighter in weight than lead acid. The cost of replacing the lithium batteries is more than double the cost of replacing gel lead acid. While we do carry liquid lead acid batteries at a lower price than gel lead acid, we find that the gel performs better and lasts longer than liquid. Keep in mind that no matter what type of battery you choose, you will still have to replace it every 2-3 years.
What kind of voltage do I require?
As the E-Bike movement gains momentum, manufacturers have started to build larger bikes with higher quality components such as disk brakes, and higher voltage systems. Generally speaking, the larger the E-Bike, the more voltage is required to propel the vehicle at top speed and up inclines. Higher voltage E-bikes generally have larger weight capacities as well; so a 48V E-Bike may be very suitable for a small person, while a larger person may be better on a higher voltage model. Depending on the weight of the bike and rider, the higher voltage bikes may also offer longer traveling range per charge.
