As mentioned in our welcome letter, it's E-Bike Live here at Bike Perfect and across our sister publications Cyclingnews, MBR and Cycling Weekly, so to kick things off, we sat down with two experts from within the industry.
Toby Pantling, a retired professional mountain biker who rode for Orange Factory Racing among others, spends his current days running Ace Bicycles, an independent bike shop in Guildford in the UK. We joined Toby alongside another former pro, Jamie Burrow, whose career was spent on the road, rather than off it. He has previously won the U23 World Cup, and can boast of having ridden for US Postal Team alongside Lance Armstrong.
We sat down with them both, putting forward a number of burning questions about the past, present and future of electric bikes.
As part of the video, we touch on the basics such as how to care for your battery, how long they are likely to last (in both short-term range and long-term lifespan) as well as some more hotly-debated topics such as whether e-bikes are cheating.
Watch the video above to get the lowdown.
