HOW FAST DO ELECTRIC BIKES GO?
While the speed at which you pedal is up to you, our throttle and pedal assist features top out at 19.8 mph, the perfect pace to streamline your commutes and accelerate your adventures without requiring a license in most states.
WHAT SHOULD I BE LOOKING FOR WHEN PURCHASING AN E-BIKE?
E-bikes have many components and each year’s technology brings new features and advances to keep track of. We want to simplify the search process so you can shop with confidence.
DO I NEED A LICENSE TO RIDE MY E-BIKE?
Not usually. While most states across the country regulate e-bikes similarly to traditional bicycles and do not require a license, some holdouts still place e-bikes into the motor vehicle category. Check your state’s local e-bike regulations to determine which license, if any, is required to operate a Class 2 e-bike.

Don't Buy Surplus or Low-Cost Electric Bikes.
Many low-cost electric bikes are neither reliable nor safe, so purchasing one is frequently a gamble. They are not intended for long-term use due to poor craftsmanship or poorly executed electronics. Some low-cost fat tire bikes lack even the most basic electrical safety features, exposing the rider to electric shock. Furthermore, many surplus models cannot climb hills or provide an adequate level of pedal assist. They have insufficient power and cannot travel far. There is no way to get them serviced if something goes wrong. You can't rely on them. Finally, most are uncomfortable to use. Select safety and true performance. Choose only electric bike brands that have a long history in the market, as well as certifications.

Unleash the Power: A Comprehensive Guide to Electric Bike Motors
9/21/2023 By C.V.
Electric bikes, or e-bikes, have revolutionized the way we commute and explore the world around us. With their growing popularity, the heart of these remarkable machines lies in their electric bike motors. These motors are the powerhouse behind the pedal-assist and throttle-driven capabilities of e-bikes. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve deep into the world of electric bike motors, exploring how they work, the different types available, their advantages, and how to choose the perfect motor for your electric bike. Whether you're an e-bike enthusiast or a newcomer, get ready to unleash the power!
Part 1: The Heart of an E-Bike - Understanding Electric Bike Motors
1.1 How Electric Bike Motors Work
To truly appreciate the power of electric bike motors, it's essential to understand how they work. At the core of these motors is electromagnetism. When electric current flows through a coil of wire within the motor, it creates a magnetic field that interacts with permanent magnets. This interaction generates motion, turning the motor's shaft and ultimately driving the bike forward.
1.2 Types of Electric Bike Motors
There are several types of electric bike motors, each with its unique characteristics:
1.2.1 Hub Motors
Hub motors are the most common type of electric bike motor. They are either placed in the front or rear wheel hub. Hub motors are known for their simplicity, ease of maintenance, and silent operation. They come in two main varieties: geared and gearless hub motors.
When it comes to electric e-bikes powered with hub motors here at Cece’s E-Bike Garage we have done our research and 4 of our top picked bikes with this type of motor include the following:
Our number one pick hands down for hunting or just hitting the trails is the Rambo Electric Hunting Bikes Krusader AWD this e-bike packs dual 500-watt motors bringing 1000 watts to 1500 watts peak power to all those off-road hunting trips or those famous bike trails in America.

This e-bike is one of the very best choices hands down on the market today.
Finally, there is our number four pick for a hub motor powered e-bike which is the RAEV GTX Electric Fat Tire Commuting Bike this e-bike is packing a high-performance 1500-watt peak power brushless hub motor that lets the rider effortlessly cruise at speeds up to 35 mph.

As for distance, the GTX is packing high-capacity 52V 28Ah dual lithium-ion batteries offering its rider a range of up to 38 miles on a single charge. The only thing that can ever be said about this e-bike is let the good times roll.
1.2.2 Mid-Drive Motors
Mid-drive motors are mounted in the bike's bottom bracket, connecting directly to the chain. These motors provide a more natural riding experience by leveraging the bike's gears. They are often preferred for their efficiency, especially on hilly terrains.
When it comes to electric bikes powered with mid-drive motors here at Cece’s E-Bike Garage we have done our research and 4 of our top picked e-bikes with this type of motor include the following:
Our number one pick for a mid-drive motor powered e-bike is the QuietKat Apex Pro Electric Hunting Bike this e-bike is packing a robust 1000-watt mid-drive motor that delivers unmatched torque and acceleration, allowing its rider to effortlessly overcome steep inclines, muddy trails, and tough terrain.

The final detail of this amazing e-bike that puts it in our top ten electric bike picks is it also carries a UL Certification and for many of us that does not know exactly what this means is it has been proven to be safe to charge without risk of burning the house down or the bike shop which we all can surely appreciate not occurring. This e-bike is one of the very best choices hands down on the market today.
Our number three pick for a mid-drive motor powered e-bike is the Kasen K2.0 Pro 1000W MTN Electric Bike this e-bike packs a Bafang M620 Mid-Drive motor and is the most powerhouse motor in its category. Don’t let its small size fool you. It packs serious power with 1000 watts (160Nm) of pure might. More than enough to tackle any obstacle in your path. The M620 will deliver the torque, speed, and durability that you’re looking for. As for range this e-bike comes with a high capacity 48V lithium-ion battery (650/840WH) with an estimated range of 40-50 miles per charge and a charge time of 6 hours and a with the battery incorporated into the frame itself offers its owner a low-profile, concealed look that won’t take away from the styling. We picked this bike not only because of its high-quality build and budget friendly price but also its ability to be the perfect bike for climbing inclines or hitting the city for daily commuting. This e-bike is hands down a great choice for any terrain.
Finally, there is our number four pick for a mid-drive powered e-bike which is the all new Aostirmotor Off-road Electric Bike Hero this e-bike packs a high-magnification brushless motor and 85 Nm of pure torque. The hero e-bike also comes with a detachable 52V 20Ah battery which is extremely beneficial when the time comes for a replacement requirement this is something else that should be considered when picking the perfect electric bike how difficult might repairs be or will I have to purchase a whole new bike and we all really hope the answer is not for a very long time. We might make money this way, but this is not what we find most important, we want our customers to not only return to us someday, but we want them to own the very best as if we was purchasing this bike for ourselves or for our own families.
1.2.3 Friction Drive Motors
Friction drive motors, while less common, are simple and lightweight. They use a roller to press against the tire, propelling the bike forward. These motors are known for their ease of installation and minimal impact on the bike's aesthetics. At Cece’s E-Bike Garage we currently do not offer any of these style motors, however we still find them to be an excellent option to building one sweet ride.
