FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does the bike need to be assembled? Both the 12” and 16” Wired electric bikes need to have the front wheel and handlebars attached. This process is detailed in step by step instructions and all tools and hardware required are provided. How to videos will also be available on the Wired Bikes website.

How long does the battery last? Run time is anywhere from 45 – 90mins depending on the skill of the rider and the terrain.

Is the battery removable? Wired Bikes batteries are removable and must be removed to charge. This gives riders the opportunity to have spare batteries on charge for extended sessions.

Will my power tool battery connect to the bike? No each Wired Bike comes with 1 x Wired Lithium-ion battery and 1 x Charger. Additional batteries are available for purchase.

How long does it take to charge the battery? Upon purchase a full charge of a brand new battery will take 2.5hrs. Subsequent charges approx. 120mins.

How does the throttle and speed settings work? Wired Bikes have a twist throttle located on the right hand side of the handlebars. The throttle is activated by clicking the power switch found close to the right hand thumb position. When in power mode the 12” model has a single speed mode 10km/h MAX and the 16” model has two speed modes ECO 12km/h BOOST 20km/h

What is the maximum weight allowance? The maximum load capacity for both 12” and 16” models is 35kgs.

Are spare parts available for both model bikes? Yes, Wired Bikes stock a wide variety of spares for both 12” and 16” models.

Is the disc brake found on the 16” model cable or hydraulic? The 16” Wired bike is fitted with a 160mm PROMAX cable operated ventilated disc brake for maximum braking performance. This gives Wired Bikes riders added confidence and is a key component that distinguishes the 16” Wired Electric Balance Bike as the industry leader.

Can Wired Bikes be ridden in the rain/wet conditions? Wired Bikes are designed for safe operation in DRY conditions. DO NOT operate any model Wired Bike in the rain or wet conditions. Any sort of wet riding activity voids any and all warranties.

Yes, I ride my electric bike with the power off. Here’s why

It might sound strange since electric bikes are known for their ability to ride faster and farther with less exertion, but I often ride my e-bike with the power turned off.

I wasn’t always this way. Especially not in the beginning. I first got into electric bicycles back around 2009. That was before it was easy to buy one, so I built one instead.

How I got into electric bikes

I wasn’t a cyclist and I wasn’t drawn to electric bikes because they were bikes. Instead, they were just a better way to get around the city. No car ownership hassles. No bus schedules. Just going.

My first e-bike didn’t even have pedal assist. It was built on a rigid Trek mountain bike with a twist throttle that unleashed 2,000 watts of power to get me flying at over 30 mph (48 km/h). Rim brakes, zero suspension, and the foolish bravery of a 20-year-old male. Oh, college.

This was a decade and a half ago, before most e-bike laws were a thing, and I had unwittingly built what was basically a DIY light electric motorcycle. That was my introduction to electric bikes. So it should come as no surprise that I wasn’t what most people would consider a cyclist.

My early years of e-biking were entirely utilitarian. E-bikes were always just a fast, efficient way to slice through the heart of a city in a fraction of time it would take a car (and with several times the amount of fun!).

But over time, the idea of pedal assist began to grow on me. I wasn’t really in search of the fitness aspect; I ran 3-5 miles a day. But I eventually discovered just how much fun pedaling could be. There was something to the idea that you weren’t on a machine, you were part of it.

Over time I became better and better at it. My cycling fitness improved (though I was by no means an athletic cyclist). I would use lower and lower levels of pedal assist power until eventually I realized that maybe I don’t even need the pedal assist. At least, not sometimes. And so I started just turning the pedal assist power off.

Pedal assist level zero became a new concept to me.

Turning off the pedal assist power

I know you might be thinking, “well then just ride a non-electric bike, ya dingbat.” And I hear you, but I don’t want that either. Because it’s not that I always ride with the bike off. In fact, I almost always have my e-bikes “on,” just with the pedal assist set to zero.

Essentially, I’ve turned off the bike’s pedal assist power. That means I’m the only thing supplying any power when I pedal. But whenever I need it, such as when trying to quickly get across a major road full of death machines with heated seats, a twist of the throttle unleashes the power of two to three highly conditioned cyclists cranking on my pedals for me. It’s a comforting safety net, and also a nice way to take the edge off if I do happen to come across a hill that is just a bit too painful for my single-speed e-bike that day.

So essentially, the “e” part of my e-bike is always there. It’s just not getting used on those rides unless I suddenly need it in a pinch.

I don’t always eschew my throttle for the duration of rides. In fact, during times when I’m still focused primarily on transportation, I’ll use higher pedal assist power levels or even purely throttle to get where I’m going quickly. I still think of my e-bikes fundamentally as forms of transportation, not fitness. That’s the way my brain is wired and it will probably never change. E-bikes are car replacers.

But the ability to take the same machine that I use to visit friends, buy groceries, or zip on over to the beach, and instead use it for fitness without any modification, is one of the coolest aspects of e-bikes.

So yes, not all of my rides are purely pizza-powered. But the ones where time isn’t of the essence often are. When I don’t need to go fast, I can enjoy going slow and doing the work myself. Just this morning my wife sent me out to buy a bottle of wine to bring to some friends hosting dinner tonight. Where’s the rush? I’m getting something I don’t understand and will undoubtedly pay too much for. Why hurry?

Instead, I dropped it into pedal assist level zero and had a lovely morning ride through a quiet city (Friday is the weekend here), all at my own pace and with my own two legs doing the work. It was so nice that I’m still coming down off of that high, which I used to immediately bang out this article.

What a terrific way to explain to those unsure of getting an e-bike that it’s not cheating and that it doesn’t prevent you from getting the exercise you need. Here’s someone who didn’t care about fitness at all and got fit anyway on an e-bike without even trying!

Brilliant. This will help me convince my wife to get one.

All of this is to say that if you have an e-bike that you use purely for urban transport, then I totally understand you. That’s exactly how I started.

But over time, I learned just how much more there was to the world of e-biking than just getting around. From the mental health benefits to the physical health benefits, a slow, easy pedal ride once in a while may just be a nice way to connect with your e-bike in a manner you haven’t considered before.
