Matjaz's Emu eBike Story Pt. 3

Posted on By Emu Bikes,

LIFE BEFORE AND AFTER THE EMU ELECTRIC BIKE

This is the final part of a three-part series of posts from Emu rider Matjaz. Read the first and second parts of his electric bike experience.

From the first ride, you will sense that the power of the Emu electric bikes comes from front wheel. Try and keep this fact in mind as it can come as a surprise when you jet off! The bike is overall easy to ride, has a big comfortable seat and an LCD screen controller located on the handlebars next to the left hand. This makes it easily accessible and allows for quick settings change from eco, city, tour, power, boost fast and safe. I usually ride on power mode; while not the fastest mode, it saves me some battery life. On the way to work I usually get on the road between 5am and 6am. Most of the roads are empty at this time so I save a lot of battery power. On the way back I have many more obstacles such as traffic, more cyclists, pedestrians, and red traffic lights.

Since my last post, I’ve had a flat tire. As mentioned, I sometimes have to ride over broken glass, and usually this isn’t a problem. As I was passing a construction site, I ran over 1.25 inch nail instead, and it went through my tire. I went to a local Halfords, where they had a tire repair station. The very friendly mechanic fixed it within 15 minutes, and I was on my way once again. While Emu electric bikes can handle broken glass, I don’t recommend riding over large nails!
