An electric bicycle is an excellent solution for people who suffer from painful joints or other complaints that lead to pain with normal (unsupported) cycling. This is of course especially true in the event of strong headwinds or cycling uphill, but is your electric bicycle up to it?

An electric bicycle is an excellent solution for people who suffer from painful joints or other complaints that lead to pain with normal (unsupported) cycling. This is of course especially true in the event of strong headwinds or cycling uphill, but is your electric bicycle up to it?

The answer is positive, your electric bike is suitable for this, but be aware, there are limitations in maximum style, duration, load and the like.

The motor used in an electric bicycle often has a maximum pulling force that is 2 times higher than the pulling force on which the motor is designed. The motor is designed to generate 250 watts continuously, but if you are riding in a low assist mode at up to 15 km/h and may have some tailwind, the power the motor will draw may be less than 100 watts. You will also notice this from a larger range of the battery.

Now if you are driving up a hill, or driving in strong headwinds and you want to reach maximum speed, the motor may require 500 watts to do this. That in itself is not a problem, the motor can do this and will try to move you at the desired speed. However, more than 100 watts cannot be supplied in most cases. If your slope is that steep and all other conditions are unfavorable, it could theoretically take 750 watts or more to get you up the hill. In that case, your bike will slow down.

What is also very important is the temperature in the motor and the control of the motor. With 25 km/h relaxed cycling on an average of 250 watts, provides sufficient cooling, however if you want to drive up a big mountain and the motor has to work for 30 minutes at double power, then both the motor and the electronics will get too hot. The continuous load is then too high and for that reason the controller ensures that this overload does not last too long. It is better to stop very occasionally to let the electronics cool down, than to end up with a burned out engine. The electronics in the bicycle therefore protect as much as possible against the motor burning out due to structural overload.

As with the range of the battery, there are also many other influences that can cause the engine to work too hard, such as too low tire pressure, rubbing brakes, excessive load, muddy ground, etc… Keep this in mind when using it.

In Australia we have no real mountains, except for some hills in  New South Wales , so in that respect this type of damage will not occur so quickly, however with  windy part of the country it can happen that you cycle against the wind for a long time and also that can cause damage to the engine if left on too long. Our tip in that case is to go to a lower support position and therefore especially to a lower speed. You may not go that fast, but your bike will remain intact.

Although the rear triangle literally sticks to the ground, it provides enough feedback from the ground and offers enough support for jumping off and pushing. On rougher trails, the imbalance in terms of grip between the rear and front wheel becomes apparent. It's a shame, because the bike is very balanced in terms of load distribution and is very easy to control in open corners on a non-slip surface
