Bosch, the most prevalent purveyor of motors for the electrified contingent, reigned supreme as mid-drives dominated the scene; similar versions of their motor were promulgated by Brose, Yamaha, TransX and Shimano, all promising that their system was superior. One of the more interesting mid-drives was a coaxial motor produced by eProdigy, available on a variety of their bikes. Many manufacturers distinguished their e-bikes from the others with options for very large capacity or piggy-back batteries promising ranges which were unavailable previously.
My anticipation of this event has been building to a crescendo since the announcement of an electric mountain bike race at the venue. This is the icing on a cake that overflows with new e-products and the opportunity to learn more about the rapidly evolving technology.
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 I think the laws are outdated, and not considerate of the whole e-bike community and its needs.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.
