Yes! ST3IKE is equipped with a high quality Shimano™ 7 or 6 Speed gearing system, so even if you were to run out of battery you can ride the ST3IKE just like a normal pedal bike.

Electric bikes don’t charge as you go, but if you charge the bike after each use it will last around 80km (50 miles) on average, so you don’t have to worry about the battery running out. The duration can also be lengthened by using different output modes to increase the distance; the less assistance, the longer the bike battery will last.

The ST3IKE is supplied with its own Lithium-Ion charger, this charger plugs into any household powerpoint and then connects to your battery charging port. It takes approximately 4 hrs to fully charge the battery.

No, you don’t need a license to ride an ebike in the UK or the EU.

Despite the uniqueness of our frames and components, our electric bikes are designed to be easy to maintain, with the highest possible standardization. Any local bike shop will have everything they need to make changes and replace any parts of the ebike.

Bafang’s Brushless DC motors, used by ST3IKE, basically require very low maintenance as they have very few moving parts and low internal friction. If we add to this the fact that the manufacturer has been producing them for years, testing them for hundreds of thousands of kilometres, they do not require any specific maintenance but a little attention to avoid shocks, impacts, corrosive environments, etc.

If it’s a small puncture in the tread- duct tape applied inside the tire works well. If it’s a cut in the sidewall (weaker part of tire casing) or a cut big enough for the tube to bulge into (and eventually pop!), safest to replace the tire.

Changing ST3IKE tires is as easy as changing those on a normal bicycle but the rear wheel will require a little more attention to avoid damaging the hub motor cables. However, carefully it is as simple as any bicycle wheel.

 

We allow returns within 30 days as long as the products remain intact and in excellent condition (used for less than 3km), they can be sent back for a full refund. For more information read our Terms of Sale

No. For safety reasons, any battery with a capacity greater than 99Wh cannot be carried on board an aircraft.

The electric bicycle works like a normal bike only that having the addition of the electric motor, it helps you (assists) in pedalling or if you want to pedal without assistance you can use it in the traditional way by disconnecting the aid of the motor with a simple click of a button.

No, it must necessarily be pedalling, pedaling assistance takes place through sensors that are usually placed on the pedals that evaluate the type of help to be given to the cyclist with a mechanical or electronic system.

It is true, electric bikes have been targeted by thieves in recent times, but there are insurances for compensation in cases of theft (we strongly recommend it), or electronic security systems such as our GPS anti-theft system able to warn you on your mobile phone of any movement of the bike. Without forgetting the bike lock.

Since electric bicycles use rechargeable batteries instead of fossil fuels, they are in fact more efficient and environmentally friendly. Costing the only 7p per full charge; to date, they are the cheapest motor vehicle for mobility.

On electric bicycles with brushless motors like ours, you can pedal, with the engine off, like on a normal bicycle. If the motor is of the traditional type, the friction makes pedalling too difficult.

Your bike will arrive 99% assembled and will be delivered in one of our specially designed boxes. Someone needs to be available to sign for the parcel. The box is rather large, our courier will help you carry it in, but they may not enter the property and carry it upstairs for example.

To fit the eBikes into our special boxes we have to turn the handlebars 90 degrees and remove the pedals. These are simple to re-fit once you have unpacked your bike. If you require assistance please email us and we will be happy to help.

The restrictions that apply to normal bikes on public transport also apply to ebikes. These vary from region to region, as well as between different transport operators. Therefore, it’s wise to check before you travel!

Ultra fun! Our electric bikes are smooth and easy to ride; riding on flat ground feels like riding gently downhill, and climbing hills is easy. As the motor helps with acceleration, ST3IKE ebikes are really well suited to riding in stop-start city traffic; you’ll always feel safe and in control, since the motor assistance stops as soon as you stop pedalling or when you pull on the brakes.
