How to choose a used electric road bike?
Electric road bikes have recently arrived in the range of EAB manufacturers. These models help you to climb the highest Alpine passes without difficulty, but also to travel on various roads, both in the city and in the countryside.
At Upway, we offer you a wide choice with for example the used electric road bikes Sunn or Giant. Each bike is reconditioned by a professional mechanic: an expert checks 20 points and replaces everything that needs to be replaced. Your used electric road bike is delivered to your home and is guaranteed for 1 year. You get a 14 day trial period and if you are not satisfied, you can return it.
In order to choose the right electric road bike for you, it is important to look at the motor and the battery (especially its capacity, expressed in watt-hours).
This type of bike offers a range of 50 to 100 kilometres or more. This is the case, for example, with the Cannondale electric road bikes. If your routes are uneven and your physical condition is not at its best, you should opt for a powerful second-hand electric road bike.
When choosing your road bike, keep in mind that your ideal position should be reclined, or even lying down, to take the strain off your shoulders and back, especially when riding long distances.
Of course, it is also important to choose an electric road bike that fits your height and to adjust the height of your saddle properly. To determine the ideal height, measure your inseam length and multiply it by 0.885 Example: 50 cm (inseam length) x 0.885 = 44.25 cm (seat height). . For optimum comfort, the saddle should be as close to your hips as possible. This means that when you are sitting on it, the tips of your feet should always be able to touch the ground.
When to use your electric road bike?
Electrically-assisted road bikes allow you to ride in places that were perhaps previously inaccessible to you because of your physical condition. Designed for all types of road cycling (touring, cyclosportive, performance), they are bikes designed for speed and long distances.
Therefore, in order to ensure the safety of your used electric road bike, in addition to wearing a helmetgloves and goggles, it is also crucial to have equipment in excellent working order such as efficient brakes and electric headlights. For your safety, on all its reconditioned models, Upway replaces wearing parts that are not in a condition equivalent to new.
Even though regular training and preparation before each ride is recommended, your electric road bike will help you to have a wonderful ride. Your E-bike will always be there when you get tired on your journey or when you have to climb the most difficult slopes. Our second-hand electric road bikes allow you to get back into the swing of cycling at a low price, whatever your age or fitness level.
