My First E-Bike Experience

By Terry M 2 years ago

Like many people, my first bicycle came when I was a young boy. When I went off to college in 1971, the "cool" campus bike that everybody was riding was a Schwinn continental 10 speed. They were so popular I had to be on a 3-month waiting list to get one. I rode that bike for probably 10 years.

Electric bikes and the law

By Scotty 2 years ago

As an avid e-bike enthusiast I’ve written this blog to discuss the current situation of the legality of e-bikes in Australia. I think the laws are outdated, and not considerate of the whole e-bike community and its needs. Note that these opinions are my own, and not representative of Dillenger Electric Bikes. Should you wish to have an illegal e-bike you do so at your own risk.

This blog post takes us to the story of Vik and his e-bike conversion, Vik is a great mate of mine and had a go on my own ebikes, which convinced him to do this conversion. First up, I’ll be straight with you and say this conversion is illegal to ride on road. It’s a 750 watt mid drive Bafang 8fun unit, which according to the laws in Australia is illegal other than for "off road" riding. This means that you can’t ride on bike paths or roads with this setup. That said, there are many enthusiasts who are riding over powered electric bikes responsibly in the community.
