Posted by on

Hey everybody! Welcome back to the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I am Kyle Chittock, and you may notice at the beginning of every episode, I share a little tidbit about myself that has nothing to do about electric bikes. That’s just so you can get to know me a little bit better.

You're listening to The Bolton Ebikes Podcast. 

In this episode, you’ll get answers to questions and topics like: 

  • When was the first patent for an electric bike?
  • What you can do to learn more about electric bikes and gain real reviews on just about every ebike on the market.
  • The top 5 things you should know before you buy an ebike. 
  • The maximum wattage you can have on an electric bike and what that means for you. 
  • The advantages and disadvantages of a mid-drive motor and a hub motor.
  • What pedal-assist actually means and the 2 different types that exist.
  • The differences between the classes of ebikes.
  • How to calculate the watt hours to understand the estimated range. 
  • and so much more!
