An Electric Bike For Every Rider

Flatten climbs and laugh in the face of headwinds on an electric road or gravel bike. Ride more trails and clumb without a shuttle on an electric mountain bike. Commute to work and stop by the grocery store on the way home on an urban active electric bike. Do the school run on an electric cargo bike and still have energy for the rest of your day. We have all of these in stock and more-stop by and see how you can charge up the fun!

At Wheelworks, our sales floor boasts 50-plus electric bikes built and ready for you to test ride. You could call our in-stock inventory “well-rounded” but that really wouldn’t do it justice. When you visit us, you can test ride different sizes, styles, and brands - all in the same place. Don’t know if you are medium or large? No problem. Do you want to try out the differences between Specialized, Gazelle, and Stromer? Come on in. Debating whether an electric cargo bike is the way to go? Let’s chat. Our staff lives and breathes the ebike life both personally and professionally, and we’re ready to share our knowledge and expert advice with you.

Are you a casual rider who wants to keep up with a more avid rider? Want to add a few more miles onto your normal ride? Ebikes are a great option for the casual rider wanting a little more out of each ride. Many of these bikes come with racks and built in lights making them perfect for commuting too!

Road

Road

Eat up mile after mile of pavement on your electric road bike. You can power up every hill at top speed, and keep cruising as long as you wish.

Mountain

Mountain

An electric mountain bike is a powerful, all-terrain vehicle that can expand your riding range considerably, and help you get more riding done if you're pushed for time. Only have a couple of hours to ride? An electric mountain bike will let you speed up the climbs, so you can enjoy more of the downs.

Cargo

Welcome to endless possibilities. Cargo ebikes allow you to enjoy your daily commute, tackle your grocery shopping, and transport your kiddos around town with ease. Haul it all, life is easier on a cargo ebike.

Things To Consider

Battery

Battery Placement

There are a few different options for where a battery is placed on the bike. One popular option is in or on the downtube which placed the weight of the bike more towardes the middle. Another is on the rear of the bike which allows the option for a step-through frame. When shopping we reccommend you try both!

Motor

Motor Placement

Wheel motors tend to be quieter but heavier than mid-drive motors and have a more normal shifting feel. In mid-drive bikes, the crank pulls the chain across the cogs, which creates less smooth shifting and more drivetrain wear, but the motor is more centered on the bike and lower, which provides better handling feel.

Power

Power

Watt hours (Wh) are a measure of electrical energy equivalent to power consumption of one watt for one hour. 400 Whs equals 400 watts delivered for one hour, for example. The more Whs, the more powerful the battery, and the longer it will deliver at the assistance level of its class.

Frequently Asked Questions About Electric Bikes

How Far Can I Go?

Your mileage may vary! There are many variables at play including speed, rider/cargo weight, wind and more. With most of the bikes we carry you can get 30-60 miles out of a single charge. Some models have space for a second battery or range extender.

How Fast Can I Go?

We carry Class 1 and Class 3 electric bikes.Class 1 bikes will provide pedal assistance up to 20mph and Class 3 will provide assistance up to 28mph. Both classes of bikes we carry need to be pedaled to engage the motor.

How Much Do They Weigh?

Weights can vary a considerable amount depending on model and battery capacity. Most electric bikes are around 45 Ibs but they can vary in weight from 30 Ibs to more than 60 Ibs.

Is It Cheating?

There is nothing about a motor that keeps you from working as hard as you want, unless you want to work less. If you put the same effort riding a non-assist bike at 8-12mph into a pedal-assist bike - your speed will increase to 15-18mph. You’re getting the same workout, you’re just going faster. 

Battery Best Practices

  • Only charge your ebike battery with the charger that came with your bike or was supplied by the manufacturer of your ebike. 
  • The safest way to charge your battery is plugged directly into the wall outlet, not an extension cord or charging strip.
  • Do not charge a battery with a generic charger. 
  • Do not leave your battery unattended overnight while charging. 
  • Try to store your battery at a temperature between 32 and 68 degrees to increase your battery life.
  • If you are going to clean your ebike please remove the battery first, do not get your battery wet.

At the end of your batteries lifespan (3-5 years) do not throw it away in a garbage can or curbside recycling bin. We have partnered with Call2Recycle to ensure ebike batteries are properly recycled and kept out of landfills.
