WHITHER FOR ELECTRIC BIKES?
FOLLOWING the news of the first official case of techno doping in professional racing, a few
Wheels readers who also want the benefit of a motorised pedal bike up our steep hills have asked about electric bikes in SA.
Rather than take chances on the slew of dubious quality Chinese motors one can buy online, we can recommend three dealers.
In Gauteng, Ezeebike has been selling their bikes for over nine years, with some commuters reporting 1 000 km a month.
Ezee has also proven their motor and battery kits with ultra rides on every continent, includ- ing from Durban to Cape Town via Jo’burg, the Silk Route in China, the length of the Mississippi in the U. S. and three wins of the world’s largest electric bike rally, the Tour de Prestige.
In Stamford Hill, Durban, the KZN Pedego dealer offers comfortable American cruisers on tyre widths that range from normal to fat snow treads, which are ideal for beach riding.
And in Pietermaritzburg, 4x4 pimping maestro Gary Peacock has both petrol and electric units that can be fitted to any pedal bike, with guaranteed after service.
All three options are sure to deliver fitness and fuel savings.
