Winter Precautionsposted on 10 December 2015 | posted in Help From Poweredbicycles | ( 4 ) Comments
Long time no speak (again) truth be told we have been quite busy with the run up to Christmas already upon us.
However i thought i would make some time to talk to you about what you should do with your electric bikes now the cold weather is now here.
Tips for Your Electric Bikes
Basically im sharing these tips with you because in the past we have known people to not follow these and then their bike has failed them when they go to use it next time. All it really needs is a little TLC over the winter period and they will all be fine.
Going to keep this short and sweet but as usual if you want to ask questions or suggest what i write about next just leave a comment down below and i will respond as quick as i can.

I would like to know what new models are expected next year. Looking for a reasonably priced folding electric trike.by Sue Galley on 11 December 2015 8:1
Firstly there are bikes out there than can self-charge when you pedal them, however they are no where near efficient enough to make it worth while.
You would need to be pedaling downhill for dozens of miles just to get enough energy to charge the battery to 15-20%. it would take around 5 to 10 times as long to charge as you are using the battery so it will never really charge.
Until the technology has been refined and there has been a way to make it efficient there will not be a bike that can go for much longer than it is without self-charging
In Response to the second question about the Trikes, the one that we do is the City Adult Folding Trike:
If you would like full details on the trike please send an email to Poweredbicycles@yahoo.co.uk and i can send you some information on it
