The hills are slotxo pretty steep here,” he said. “Even though I like to ride bikes – like most Dutch people do – it is useless. That's how I got into e-bikes, I got one in 2019 and the rest is history.Mr Maassen founded the 250-member E-bike Lovers club in the US capital. Be among the hundreds of thousands of people who turn to electric bikes for fun or to get around their towns and cities.Simply put, an electric bike is a bicycle that uses a built-in electric motor to assist in its propulsion. Although some bikes come with a throttle and operate like a normal motorcycle. But it can kick all of them. which is a distinction that separates them from legal electric motorcycles.

in the United States Industry rather than government divides e-bikes into three broad categories.Class 1 e-bikes are equipped with motors that provide assistance only when the accelerator is pressed. The system stops when the bike reaches 20 mph (32 km/h), while Class 2 e-bikes come with a throttle that can be used to propel the e - riding at the same speed.The Class 3 bikes come with a motor that provides assistance only when the rider presses the accelerator, stopping when the e-bike reaches 28 mph.However, according to Mr Maassen, the classification system is still confusing. The riders themselves often do not know what type of bicycle they use.

It's hard to understand what they are. Because they are all the same,” he explains. “Often it's just the software that makes the difference.And then you have the conversion kit, people make their own e-bikes, and there's no categorization. or people shopping on the internet Who knows what kind of specs,” added Massen. "That's very difficult to enforce.Industry experts say the sector is enhanced by a wide range of rules and regulations across local or international jurisdictions, with governments, manufacturers and industry groups offering a dizzying array of ways to compare and contrast e-bikes.For example, in the United States The National Park Service ignores the industrial classification system.

Often they invest a lot of money in the purchase and may not be able to use it to its full potential due to different interpretations of the law.The confusing rules, said Claudia Wasko, vice president and general manager of Bosch eBike Systems Americas in California. This is coupled with the media and marketing materials incorrectly labeling vehicles as e-bikes. could have even more serious consequences.The use of facilities designed and designated for the use of bicycles and electric bicycles may result in user conflict. It may be illegal to ride in a designated area for bicycles. or if installed as a bicycle It could be detrimental to efforts to promote the same laws and is widely accepted.

But the confusing regulations haven't dampened the public's enthusiasm for the technology in the slightest.In the US alone, e-bike sales rose 116% from $8.3 million in February 2019 to $18 million (£12 million) the following year, ahead of the impact of Covid, market research firm NPD and advocacy group NPD. People For Bikes in February this year. Sales have reached $39 million.Terika Haynes, CEO and founder of DT Scooters, a Florida-based online retailer specializing in electric scooters and e-bikes. It said suppliers were often unable to meet demand during pandemics due to plant closures and supply chain disruptions.We're still dealing with it, unfortunately, it's time for us to shine a light on everyone who wants to exercise. and want to buy an e-bike, but the supply is not there.
