Electric Cycle Buying Guide

  • Material Quality – In a cycle the most important components are Tyres, Frame, Brakes. You have to check the quality of these components, In most cycles the frame is made up of aluminium while some are made up of carbon steel, both of these materials are pretty good. Always check the build quality of the tyres, keep an eye on the brakes you must have seen brakes made of plastics so check what they are made up of and also check the quality of wires.
  • Battery – An electric cycle can have two types of battery In-built or detachable, both baving their pros and cons. In a in-built battery you don’t have to worry about it being stole or having an exterior problem because it is fixed inside the frame of a cycle. While a detachable battery, being able to detach can be stoled but you can take it out yourself and use the electric cycle as a normal cycle. Other than this you have to check the power of the battery, in an electric cycle you can have a battery of around 5-7Ah. The more power a battery have the more it’s range increases such as if you have a battery of 5.2Ah and a battery of 7.2Ah the battery with 7.2Ah will have more range than the battery with 5.2Ah. With this you also have to focus on the warranty of the battery, some have a waaranty of 1 yeah while some having warranty of 2 years.
  • Motor – After Battery, Motor is the most important component in an Electric Cycle. Most of the Electric Cycles have 36V/250W BLDC motor (Brushless Direct Current Motor). 36V/250W BLDC motor is known as one of the best motor for Electric Cycles, it’s case is a waterproof case. You also have to check the power of the motor before buying it. The power of the motor depends on the weight you carry on the Cycle, and the condition of the path (straight, hill). The more weight you have the more power motor is needed. The motor can also break, it might effect the speed of the motor if you will put an eccesive load on it.
  • Warranty – Each component of an Electric Cycle gets a different warranty. Most of the Cycles have a lifetime warranty on the frame, Tyres have a different warranty, Motors and Battery are the most ecxpensive components in an Electric Cycle, they usually get a warranty around 1-2 years but different brand have a different warranty. The more warranty you get is better so always check the waranty.
  • Brand – You can go with any brand till it is not manufactured in China.
  • After Sale Services – As I told you not to go with a Chinese manufactured product. If the product is manufactured in china than you will not be able to get a proper service if the something goes wrong with the product, cause the people are just assembling the product in India rather that manufacturing it in India. So go with a product made in India and there will be less problems in the service because they are manufactured here.
  • Test Drive – While most of the electric cycles are available online, you must take a test drive if possible.

Keep all these points in your mind while buying an electric cycle and you will be able to buy a good cycle for yourself.
