    People riding electric bicycles spend more time in the saddle. Literally. We need to state this clearly so we are not seen as an overly soft bunch, but the simple truth is that those riding ebikes don’t need to rise up out of their saddles in order to apply more force to the pedal. The ebike motor, assuming is a good high-torque system, will assist to the point where you can climb hills without the need to rise up out of the saddle. This is true even for off-road cycling with unexpected inclines.

    Since discovering the joy of riding again with my Gepida Reptila Bosch powered ebike, I have been amazed by the number of intelligent people who tell me I’m cheating as I ride with my kids… to the shops… to the park… through the bush… to the cafes (my favourite trip by far ;)).

    I was lamenting as such to the inspirational Fiona Campbell from The City Of Sydney and her wise response to these people is “we are not in a race”.

    With its debut to the world at the Eurobike trade fair in late August 2015, the new high torque Bosch CX Performance Line electric bike drive system has just landed in Australia. The first models in Australia to feature CX Performance Line drive system is the new Gepida Asgard 1000 hardtail eMountain bike available in either 27.5 or 29” wheel sizes.

    The Gepida Asgard and its cousin the Ruga have had a very successful entry into the Australian electric bike market since their debut in late 2013. They have been well received by reviewers and the public, and have found a home in the key specialist electric bicycle stores across Australia. The design and specification of these eMountain bikes have evolved significantly from the early variant with the pioneering Gen1 Bosch Classic+ drive system, to today featuring this most advanced CX Performance Line system.

    Article by John Hardwick from Mountain Biking Australia Magazine published 11 December 2015

    Mountain bikers are a pretty relaxed crowd. Compared with the road cycling fraternity we tend to be far less uptight and worried about what we’re riding or how we look—as long as we’re out enjoying the trails then it’s all good, right?

    Well that’s what I thought until I started reading some of the social media posts relating to off-road e-bikes. Sure people can get a bit passionate about their favourite wheel size or some new hub standard but I was seeing a whole new level of hate. A handful of people seem open to the idea but most believe they are pseudo motorbikes for lazy people and they’re going to tear the trails apart.

The development of the cargo bike and the adoption of ebike technologies, will also see the widespread adoption of cargo bikes by small and large businesses alike.
