Are you interested in buying an e-bike?
Try it out, take it home, integrate it in your routine. We’ll even bring the bike to you and pick it up when you’re done.
No cost, no obligation.
E-bikes come in all forms and shapes now – from commuters and hybrids, to full suspension mountain bikes, hardtails, road and cargo bikes. We carry a wide selection including brands like Cube, a German company rated highest in safety worldwide, Norco, Canadian West Coast designed and tested, Yuba, Urban Arrow, Benno and Babboe for all your cargo-hauling needs, Scott, engineered in Switzerland, Trek, Electra and more.
There are different systems on the market using a mid-drive pedal-assist or a rear/front wheel assist motor. The rear/front wheel assist systems mostly give you the option of having a throttle so you don’t necessarily have to pedal. The motor is either in the front or the rear wheel (hub). Mid-drive systems like Bosch or Shimano STEPS provide power through the cranks of the bike and enhance your pedal stroke – so you must be pedalling to engage the assist.
We put together a brief overview of the Bosch and Shimano STEPS systems, outlining the basics of how they work.
