FAQ's

Which motor systems do you use and what is the voltage?
We use both the Bosch and the Panasonic systems. All our bikes are 36 v.
 
Are the bikes back wheel hub or crank motor ?
They are all crank with the gears in the back wheel hub.
 
Will I have to pedal ?
Yes. The E bike is simply a cycling experience with electric pedal  assist.
 
How many miles will a full charge do ?
It depends on how they are ridden, and on the terrain. In flatter conditions 50 - 60 miles is realistic, but on Dartmoor we tell customers to expect a minimum of 30 and a maximum of 40 miles. 
 
How long does it take to recharge the battery?
From empty, probably 2-3 hours.
 
How long do the batteries last ?
They ( the manufacturers) say a full charge every day for three years. That's well over a thousand charges and many thousands of miles. Like anything they will need to be replaced at some point.
 
Are they good on hills ?
The simple answer is yes. We have yet to find a Dartmoor hill that the bikes cannot manage with ease.
 
I have a dodgy hip and knee problems. Will I manage?
Obviously it depends on the severity of your injuries but your e bike will give you a new lease of life !
 
Other cyclists scoff and say that an e bike is cheating. Can I still work out ?
The beauty of your e bike experience is that you can make it as easy or as difficult as you choose. The best of all world's !
 
Are they easy to maintain ?
Our motto is 'a little and often'. Pretty much the same as a bike ( chain, tyres, brakes ) with a proper annual service,
