    Is Your Lock Up To The Job?

    With the cost of electric bikes increasing, the last thing you want is your pride and joy being stolen. Make sure you secure your ebike with an approved lock that will do the job. Cycle locks are rated as to their toughness.

    Bronze – Ideal for short journeys in to town where bikes will be left within sight, but not within reach

    Silver – They tend to be more secure and will prevent a 3 minute prolonged attempt to steal your electric bike. Hopefully a passerby would have interrupted the attempted cycle theft and the would be ebike thief scarpers empty handed.

    Gold – These cycle locks tend to be far more expensive and heavy. These products will withstand a thief for up to 5 minutes with all conceivable tools, during which time it is hoped they would either be put off and leave, or be disturbed. They are meant for the long term parking of your electric bike or electric trike such as places of work where the bike will be locked up all day. You may want to consider leaving your lock attached to the fixing point if it is a daily locking point, thus meaning you aren’t carrying a heavy cycle chain to and from work everyday!

    Carefully Choose Where You Park Your Electric Bike

    Where you leave your electric bike can greatly reduce the chances of it being stolen.

    • Lock your ebike in busy areas such as high streets or reception areas.
    • Lock it to something that has both ends securely attached or bolted the the wall or the floor.
    • Don’t lock your electric bike where it blocks access for prams and pushchairs, or on to railings that specifically say NO BIKE PARKING!
    • Use well lite areas that are well visable.

  • Powabyke Battery Recell and Recycle

    Battery for the Powabyke Shopper 2002 Model Electric Bike

    Powabyke still have thousands of electric bikes on the UK roads with some dating back over 20 years! The Somerset based electric bike company still supply many parts for the older generation bikes including the original lead acid battery cells. Prices start at £149 for a set of 3 lead acid batteries that fit inside the case such as the Shopper bike battery pictured above.

    Lead acid battery cell that fits inside the case of the Powabyke Shopper Electric Bikes

    The three 12v lead acid cells are wired up giving you 36v. The volts give you the power, while the amps give you the range. So a 7.2amp battery will give you approx 10-15 miles unassisted, while a 15amp battery will give you 30-40 miles unassisted. Please note though, there are many varying factors that affect range:

    • Size of rider/load being carried
    • Head winds
    • Hills
    • Tyre pressure
    • Air temperature
    • Temperature of battery when charging
    • Age of battery
    • Rider effort
    • Urban cycling vs long country cycling (stopping and starting frequently in a city environment will reduce range as the initial acceleration draws a lot more power compared to a bike that is travelling continuously at the maximum speed).
    Battery for the Powabyke Euro and Commuter Range of Electric Bikes

    Many of the old lead acid batteries can also be updated to lithium by an approved Powabyke Agent. Why not call Powabyke to discuss the options and prices. This service is what helps keep Powabyke electric bikes riding around the roads of the UK and beyond!

  • E-bike incentives “over twice as effective” as e-car grants

    EBikes are still not receiving the publicity required and what they deserve. Changing the minds and attitudes of a car loving nation won’t happen over night. Read Bikebiz’ take on the subject.

    E-bike incentives “over twice as effective” as e-car grants

    8th July 2019 BusinessHighlight

    The UK is falling behind when it comes to green transport because it is failing to promote electric pedalling alongside electric cars, the Bicycle Association (BA) has said.

    Backed up by research from consultancy Transport for Quality of Life, the BA has argued that incentives to boost e-bikes are better-value, more equitable and healthier than subsidising the purchase of electric cars, and could potentially achieve change more quickly.

    The research shows that the cost of saving a kilogram of CO2 via schemes to boost e-bikes is less than half the cost of existing grants for electric cars and at a cost per purchase of less than one-tenth of the grant for electric cars.

    The BA believes that electric vehicles will play a key role in decarbonising all forms of transport, but argues that e-bikes should be a top priority for urgent Government support. The findings will be launched at a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group in the Houses of Parliament today, attended by numerous MPs, officials and decision-makers.

    The evidence shows that around half of all trips by e-bike replace a trip that would have been made by car. E-bikes are also used for longer trips than conventional bikes, so their potential to reduce carbon emissions, air pollution and congestion is greater. Unlike electric cars, which tackle pollution but do not tackle congestion, e-bikes are ready now for mass adoption, the BA has said.

    Steve Garidis, executive director of the BA said: “The time is right for national Government and city regions to kick-start wider e-bike uptake with purchase incentive schemes. The results in terms of CO2 and congestion reduction will be fast and at a remarkably low cost – a game-changer in clean urban transport.”

    Chris Boardman, Greater Manchester walking and cycling commissioner said: “I can see the huge potential of e-bikes, they are the perfect tool to entice many people, who don’t want to be a cyclist, out of the car. I wholeheartedly support any measures that make that choice easier and I am very keen that Greater Manchester becomes the first Demo Region to pilot measures to give people this viable alternative to driving. I will work with both the industry and government to explore how we make that happen as quickly as possible.”

    Alongside advocating purchase incentives for personal e-bikes, the BA has also argued that there’s a huge potential to build on the existing Department for Transport grants scheme for electric cargo bikes, which can carry up to 250kg of cargo around cities and replace nearly one in three delivery trips by van.

    In a second report commissioned by the BA from Transport for Quality of Life, evidence shows that up to 30% of commercial van journeys in urban areas could be substituted by e-cargo bike deliveries, with significant scope to reduce congestion and air pollution. Among the measures called for in the report are ‘Demonstration Cities’. These could trial e-cargo bike logistics, encourage public sector procurement of e-cargo bike services, provide community e-cargo bikes for public use and help develop best practice for a future national roll-out.
