Service and Maintenance 

Aside from the power assistance e-bikes are mechanically identical to their analog siblings. This means they follow the same tuneup schedule any other bike would! Our mechanics are licensed bosch technicians meaning your bike couldn't be in better hands. We take extra care when tuning your e-bike to make sure  not only the mechanics are working properly but we also have the capacity to preform diagnostic tests and update your firmware.  The coolest part about all of that is we will provide you with a detailed status report for the past year regarding how much you rode your bike and so many other fun facts! 


How far do electric bikes go?

This changes based on variables such as rider weight, bike model, and assistance mode being used. The top of this range however can reach over 150 miles on a single charge!

How do E-bikes work?

 

E-bikes today use pedal assist technology opposed to older throttle models. This gives the bike a wonderfully responsive feel and doesn't take the bike riding out of going faster, further.

Are they difficult to charge?

Modern Bosch lithium-ion batteries do not suffer from memory effect or self-discharge issues. Your battery will charge to 50% in about 2 hours, depending on the charger and PowerPack.

Electric Bike Testimonials


Ellen & Bob

We started cycling in our late 60s, and were thrilled with how much fun we were having. Our typical day trip became 20 miles on trails throughout New England. Although we tried to stay together, Bob’s cruising speed is 16-18 mph, mine is 10-12. I felt I was holding him back. Two of our friends told us they had switched to an e-bike, so I went to Western Cycle where they offer a test drive. After a few minutes of instruction, I was off. Game changer! I had no idea how smooth the power controls were, and how much control I would have over the speed. Now we can either cycle together with a little push for me from the e-bike, or Bob can go on ahead and I can turbo it to catch up. Last summer I signed up for a 110-mile weekend ride, knowing I could get as much exercise as I wanted by turning off the e-function, yet have the confidence that if I ran into trouble, I could keep up with the group by turning it on. I’m thrilled with my purchase, and look forward to many new – and long – adventures!

Regarding my e-bike: I absolutely love it!
My reason for considering one in the first place was to be able to keep up with my boyfriend and his family.  They are avid cyclists and tend to go on very long rides.  I have a chronic deteriorating knee condition and have had 3 ankle repairs that make riding a traditional bike uncomfortable. Before my e-bike I was never able to go with them on rides. The bike has been a life saver.  It provides me the exercise I'm looking for with the assistance I need - when I need it.  This was an important feature about the bike that I wanted - pedal assist.  The assist on this bike doesn't work unless I'm peddling and with multiple levels of assist, I can't be lazy!
One thing to note about this bike is that it's considerably heavier than a traditional bike so caution and consideration need to be taken when putting on a bike rack. Removing the battery does help a little bit but it's still considerably heavier than a regular bike.  Another feature I truly appreciate is how quiet this bike is.  I thought the bike would be noisy with the motor but it's virtually silent and aesthetically looks exactly like a traditional cruising bike.  This is nice because electric bikes are still new here and can have a bit of a stigma so it's nice that this bike doesn't stand out. 
I would recommend an electric assist bike to anyone who enjoys the freedom of a long bike ride but isn't able to endure on a traditional bike.  They are worth every penny!
