Have a Question? Read our FAQs
How do I compare price comparisons?
Compare the componentry, brand popularity and the quality of each bike. Good e-bikes aren’t cheap, cheap e-bike aren’t good!
How to know the quality of the brand?
Ask the question where the bikes are made such as Taiwan, China, Asia etc.
Does it matter where a bike is designed and where it’s made?
Do not get fooled by marketing spiel – designed in NZ or assembled in NZ is purely to take the attention away from where they are manufactured.
How much of the bike is Shimano or Bosch componentry?
Some e bikes state they are Shimano equipped, this could mean 1-2 parts most commonly the shifter, derailleur or cassette. These words are purely to take the attention away from the specifications, for example the Discovery e bike has Shimano motor, battery, dash, shifter, Canbus wiring, hydraulic brakes, disc’s, hub, cassette and derailleur.
Where is the best position for a battery and motor to be mounted?
Mid drive is the best option as it creates a better weight distribution.
What is the difference if I get a puncture in a wheel with the motor in it versus mid drive motor?
You can repair a puncture yourself with mid drive as it’s like a standard bike with quick release wheels, it’s not so easy on a motor driven wheel as it’s nutted and requires tools to remove the wheel, unplug the electrical wires, cut the cable ties, not to mention the heavier weighted item and all being time consuming. It would likely require a bicycle technician to do the repair for you and the extra time to do this would be reflected in the labour charge.
What questions should I ask the seller?
Do they offer a full workshop service with qualified bicycle mechanics to carry out the repair, do they sell spare parts for the specific bike, how long has the company been trading for, what reviews do they have? If they don’t have any of the above, they have no after sales service.
Where can I take the bike for repair?
If its not a known brand and the seller tells you, “you can take it to any bicycle repair shop” call at least three to check, do not simply take their word for it. You want the confidence knowing that no matter where you are in NZ and you need a repairer you can go to any bike workshop versus back to the supplier if they are the only service provider.
How far distance can I ride?
Consider the riding distance before having to recharge the battery. The more assist needed the quicker the battery is used, for example a bike with wheel drive would have a range from 40 to 60klms and a mid-drive would have 100 to 185klms distance available.
What does diagnostics do?
Quicker workshop diagnosis on component check for fault finding. When a bike comes with software updates, this will keep the bike running at its optimum efficiency with test modes, adjustments, settings, customizing, no diagnostics means you can’t improve on what you have, it takes a lot longer time for a bike mechanic to trace faults, and this will be classed as a high-risk factor and reflects in the labour charges.
