Yes. Coming soon to your apartment doorstep bringing your next meal. My prediction is, that New York’s food delivery men are about to take up more space in your elevator. Why, you ask? Two words. Electric bikes.
The Noisemakers – contain bells, whistles and air horn. Noisemakers can tell the people and car drivers that you are there. With a noisemaker, you can notify your family that you are home.
Electric bikes are quiet, reliable and one time investment. Normally, the electric motor has enough power to transport 2-3 people at a distance range of 20 and 50 miles on single recharge. A major benefit of an e-bike is that it can go where cars don’t reach. You can pass by cars that are held up by a traffic light, jams, maintenance or slight accidents. There is no need to fight for parking because you can park close to most buildings like any other bicycle.
The last reason for building an electric push bike…but by no means the least important…is the fact you are reducing your carbon footprint which has to be a good thing in my book.
It is very important that you clean the electric bike regularly or after using it. There will surely be dust or any dirt that can stick to it. But you must remember that it must be kept dry all the time. You may apply some grease or lubricant to keep it running smoothly. An bicicletta elettrica must be kept in a place that is dry, clean and with the right temperature. Some parts of the electric bike are quite sensitive to extreme of temperature.
But you’re asking why mention gas with bicycles? In the past, at least in the United States, gas prices were never a concern. Up until 2006 or so, Americans were able to buy gas for under $2.00 per gallon. That’s practically nothing! Two years later, it’s a different story.
The best and most important thing before buying an electric bike is to take one for a test ride. There are various models and manufacturers of e-bikes, with some of them being: Currie bicycles, Rayos, Ultra motor, Urban Mover Bikes, Prima Power bikes etc. with different features. Before buying an electric bike compare the features of different bikes and then purchase the one that suits you best.
