Frequently Asked Questions

How do the bikes charge?

Your bike comes with a charger cable, very similar to size and shape of a laptop charger. Simply remove the battery from the bike and plug it into the charger.

Each battery has an indicator to let you know how much power you have remaining. Charging overnight is always the best option however 3-4 hours on the charger should fill it up.

How much does it cost to charge?

From empty to full, a typical e-bike battery costs about 15 cents and a full battery should carry you for at least a good 30-40kms.

Are E-Bikes legal?

In Australia any e-bike motor rated at 250w with a pedal assist mechanism is treated with the same laws a cyclist would be. So as long as you’re wearing a helmet you’re good to go.

What are the advantages of using an E-Bike?

E-Bikes make hills seem flat and make flats seem like downhills, you’ll get where you’re heading faster, you won’t have to worry about your clothes getting sweaty and you’ll be able to carry more stuff. On the roads you’ll have more control and confidence, they’re a very cheap, sustainable and practical transport solution.
