When we talk about electric vehicles, in a broader sense, we do not mean only electric cars, though these can collect more prominence. We also have vans and light electric trucks, electric motorcycles, electric bikes and electric bicycles. An electric bike can be more affordable electric vehicles that we encounter, and the first with which we begin in e-mobility.
Not only cycling enthusiasts or environmentalists can use a bicycle as means of transport, many more people could find an internship to bikes for the day to day, and indeed in other countries the bike is used much more than in Spain. For small displacements by city they have major advantages over make them on foot or by car. Now that summer is here, with good weather, and some free time, it might be a good time to try an electric bike.
What is an electric bicycle
Sure that you also have heard you any that again. Many people argue that a bike in Spain is uncomfortable because our country is not as flat as the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, or Denmark, and that multiple slopes that exist in cities make use one have enough problems.
Of course, if we want to use a bike for example to go to class or to work, and we have to do much effort and arrived exhausted and sweat, it is clear that we have a problem. And precisely because of that electric bicycles, were created to help us pedal and that I do not have to make so much effort or we get exhausted, even if it touches us the worst of slopes.
An electric bicycle, as its name suggests, is a special bike featuring an electric motor to turn the rear wheel. More specifically an electric bike is called bicycle pedal assisted electric, as the electric motor is not intended so the bike move as if it were a motorcycle, but help us to pedal with less effort.
There are three fundamental components in an electric bike: the electric motor, that it tends to be integrated in the wheel, hub environment, one battery, that is what builds up the power that feeds the engine, and a control system of the level of assistance, that can be a small screen and a remote control on the handlebar, to select the power of the electric motor and if we want to do more or less strength. They are usually able to choose two, three, or four levels.
An electric bicycle, its name implies, obviously no longer a bike, so it has to meet certain requirements, and in Europe are also defined by regulations of approval: must have pedals (if not have them would be already considered a moped or motorbike), the engine has a maximum power which can not overcome, exactly 250 W, and the maximum speed that can be achieved thanks to the motor may not exceed the 25 km/h.
In some countries there are bikes with more powerful engines that can also reach more speed, but here could not be sold, or would take the approval of mopeds and electric bikes. Apart from the engine, as any bike, if the rider has good legs and physical condition, and gives force to the pedals, can reach, by its own means, not by the engine, more than 25 km/h speed.
I.e., that for circular with tranquility, the motor spins the wheels and the user just has to ride: what I said before, you will arrive at your destination rested and as a rose.
Two types, according to whether or not are plug-in
We could consider that there are two main types of electric bikes, although the former is more common than the other. The most common is an electric bike with rechargeable battery by means of a plug, but there are also bikes that work very similarly to a hybrid car, and that recharged the battery for themselves, holding and braking, without plugging. If we are rigorous we should call them hybrid bikes electrical, but as in the end they do more or less the same, help us to ride with an electric motor, will also cite them within a broad concept of electric bicycles.
In these hybrid bikes, for example instead of braking with the traditional brakes can stop with retention of the motor, or e.g. pedaling in reverse (back), depends on a little model.
We could cite the Copenhaguen Wheel within this second type, although it is not the only one, also Bike is the plus of Milan.
A rechargeable electric bike battery tends to be removable, so you can go home and recharge by plugging it into the network. If not it because you know, there is another that ride the bike. Depends on battery, its size and the charger, but it can be loaded within a period of between one and five hours approximately. The battery determines electrical autonomy which will take the bike, depends on it and its size, but can be between about 25 and about 100 km, Depending on the type.
Beyond how to recharge the electric bike, as with any other bike there are different types depending on your picture and design. We have bikes ride, only with the low bar, mixed bikes, which are often also called citibikes, very versatile, without becoming a mountain bike, and there are also electric bikes folding, more compact, as for example the EZ pro db0. Less common, but there are also, road bikes. There is enough variety and each user can choose which best suits the.
Prices for all budgets
The prices of electric bicycles are variable. To start one, you can find conversion kits, with all the components needed to assemble on a normal bike that we already have, and convert it into electric bike. It depends on the brand and features, but they could find from a 350 or 400 euros, if one is installed.
And the other option is to buy a electric bike as such. There are also many prices. The simplest ones, like this one from Decathlon, can cost from around 800 euros, although it is more usual to find bikes around 1500 to 2000 euro brand. If electric bike is more exclusive, with better materials and more design, can easily cost more than 3000 euros.
We can find electric bikes both white brands such as traditional, type BH or Orbea, and even car brands, such as smart, Peugeot and Ford, among others. To buy one we can go to a store specializing in bikes, lifelong neighborhood store, but we can also go to a large area, search online, or if it is a bike car, a dealer brand.
The price It also varies depending on the equipment and performance of the bike, there are bikes without damping, and other shock-absorbing front and rear. Picture material also changes the price, from steel to aluminum and composite materials. In short, this is like everything else.
In Spain, since last year, there are AIDS for who will buy an electric bicycle, that Yes, having lithium-ion battery and a minimum range of 20 km: they are 200 euros in aid, it is not much, but it is better than nothing.
Who is not directly encourage to buy one, try to rent it. In the cities they are encouraging to make shared bike rental services, and you can try a day with one. In Madrid for example, but with a little problem in the beginning, BiciMad service allows you to rent an electric bike.
