E Bikes are hot right now


E-bikes of­fer the free­dom of cy­cling with­out all the ef­fort of push­ing ped­als.

But Hot E Bikes of­fer so much more.

Colin Downs is im­port­ing the USA de­signed, China man­u­fac­tured bikes that meet the req­ui­site New Zealand stan­dard.

‘‘The first ship­ment proved to be so suc­cess­ful, we have an­other ship­ment ar­riv­ing at the end of Septem­ber,’’ he says.

The Hot E bikes are easy to learn how to ride, are well bal­anced, rel­a­tively light and are er­gonim­i­cally de­signed for com­fort and per­for­mance.

While many e-bikes have mid-bike mounted mo­tors, between the ped­als, the Hot EBike’s mo­tor is in the rear hub. It means that even if the chain fails, you can still get power to the rear wheel and can get home with­out hav­ing to push the bike.

The bike is pow­ered by a 36 volt, 250 watt mo­tor, has great brakes and safety fea­tures such as flash­ing lights and brightly colour frames.

The Hot E Bike is a 21 speed bike with the mo­tor, frame and forks all man­u­fac­tured by the same com­pany to en­sure they are all com­pat­i­ble, giv­ing them a stur­di­ness that means they can be used for road or trail rid­ing.

Colin says he is keen to pro­mote e-bikes as a means of re­duc­ing road con­ges­tion and would like to see busi­nesses in­vest in Hot E Bikes for staff to help make this hap­pen.

He is also hop­ing to or­gan­ise a demon­stra­tion day in Tau­ranga for po­ten­tial cus­tomers, busi­nesses and trans­port plan­ners to see the ben­e­fits of the Hot E Bike.

The bikes can be seen and bought from Twisted Cy­cles on Devon­port Rd in Tau­ranga.
