Most Common Myths Regarding E Bikes

Most Common Myths Regarding E Bikes

October 31, 2022

Electric bikes are becoming increasingly popular, and their sales keep increasing yearly. Many people prefer E bikes more than motorbikes because they are easy to charge, and they have pedal assistance. However, since E bikes are different from standard bikes, many myths exist. Here is a list of the most common misconceptions about them:

Myth 1: E-bikes are too expensive

Yes, e-bikes are expensive due to their expensive bicycle parts. However, they also help you save a lot of money. If you want the best value for your money, you should consider an e-bike with high-quality components and a good battery installed on a simple electric bike. 

Myth 2: You have to have a driving license to operate an e-bike

No, you do not need to have a driving license. It is absolutely legal to ride an electric bike without a driving license, insurance, or registration. Even wearing a helmet is not mandatory. The only requirement is that you need to be over the age of 14. 

Myth 3: You cannot ride an electric bike in the rain

Many people think that riding an e-bike in the rain is not safe. However, it is not true. Actually, all the components of an e-bike are waterproof and sealed, meaning that you can ride an electric bike in any weather. 

Myth 4: You cannot get in shape on an electric bike

The most common question about e-bike is "Can you get fit on an e bike?" Many people think it is not possible and also wonder: "Is riding an e bike cheating?" The truth is that you can still enjoy the fitness benefits of cycling while riding an electric bike and have assistance when it is necessary. So the truth is that you can get in shape while riding an electric bike. 

Myth 5: The battery can explode or catch fire

You may have heard the news that e-bike batteries can explode, but in reality battery fires and explosions are very rare. The risk is minimal if you properly store and take care of your bike. Since e-bikes also have lithium-ion batteries, you must make sure you use the correct charger. If you do everything correctly, you will not have any issues with your bike or its battery.
