All ebikes are a little different, but most street legal bikes sold in the U.S. have ranges that vary between 20 to 50 miles.  A couple examples would be the Back Country Mule eBike has a range of up to 50 miles.  Any Quiet Kat E-bike model will have a range between 18 to 40 miles depending on the model.   Now these are estimates only, and while they are fairly acurate, your milage may vary depending on the type of terrain your riding on, headwind, the weight of the rider, and drag (if you have a trailer connected to the bike).  

A battery's life is measured in charge cycles.  Of all the E-bikes we sell their battery life is in the range of 500-1000 charge cycles depending on the model.  To look at this from the aspect of how many years of use you can feasably get.  If you are charging your battery every third day you can expect a battery with a life of 500 cycles to last 4 to 5 years.

All of our bikes come to you pre-assembled, and we check to make sure everything is adjusted correctly.  We verify all bolts and connectors are tight and that their are no defects.  When you purchase an electric bike from Rush Outdoor Gear be rest assured you are getting a quality product that works just as the manufacturer intends.

You can purchase any replacement parts you need for any product we sell directly through our store, we can guarantee the best price as we can purchase directly from the manufacturer.  If you are looking for a different saddle, or wanting to accessorize or customize your bike, we have a small selection of products to choose from.  Most models that we sell use common mountain bike or motorcycle parts, which can be purchased from numerous retailers.

The warranty terms on products that we sell range from 30 days (overall) on Motopeds (the individual parts that make up the Motopeds have different warranty periods).  To 1 to 2 years on electric bikes, depending on the model.  Most of the electric bikes have lifetime warranties on their frames.  It all depends on the model your interested in and the parts that make up the bike itself. 

In the state of Utah, any bike that has a motor of less than 50cc that is rated under 25 mph is considered a motorized bicycle.  With that said all of the 49cc Motoped models we sell are already street legal!  No license, registration, insurance, endorsement necessary, you can even ride them in the bike lanes!  Anything above 50cc (all of the 125cc Motopeds) is treated as a motorcycle, and requires registration, licensing, and a motorcycle endorsement.  If you wanted to ride a 125cc Motoped on the streets you would need to put a light kit on it.  None of the eBikes we sell require licencing, as we don't sell any bike with a motor of over 1000 watts.

Its a loaded question to be sure.  All street legal E-bikes in the state of Utah (those that have a speed of less than 28 mph and feature a motor of 750 watts or less) are considered non-motorized bicycles.  All of the 750 watt E-bikes that we sell are street legal, and can be taken on State land including non-motorized trails.  We have a few models that feature 1000 watt motors and these bikes would be considered motorized as they are over the limits set by the state.  This is thanks to SB121 that was passed through the 2016 legislative session.  Laws vary state by state, so know the law before you ride.  Federal law still considers E-bikes to be motorized vehilces, so they can only be taken on federal lands where allowed.  Motopeds are considered motorized vehicles and can only be ridden where allowed by state and federal law.  

All 49cc Motopeds get 135 miles to the gallon.  The tank on a Motoped is a little over a gallon, so you can expect to travel between 125 to 150 miles to the tank, depending on the terrain.  125cc models get 90 miles to the gallon, so you can expect between 85 to 115 miles to the tank. 

There is very little maintenance required for most E-bikes that we sell.  You will need to do tune ups on an E-bike (adjusting the derailer, brakes, and oiling the chain) just like you would on a regular bike.  You will need to condition the battery every so often (completely discharging the battery and completely charging it).  E-bikes have storage requirements when not using them to ensure the battery and other components are kept in optimum condition.  When you purchase an E-Bike from Rush Outdoor Gear we will go over the requirements for the particular model that you purchase.  A reqular maintenance schedule is included in each bikes' owners manual as well.
