Gaining popularity within the past few years, E-bikes have brought new opportunities to riders of all types.  University Bicycles is a strong proponent of E-bikes and we keep great inventory on E-Bikes and parts to keep them rolling.  

Despite their booming popularity, there are still rules and regulations in place that determine where and what types of bikes are allowed.

Class 1

Class 1 E-bikes are pedal assist bikes that will only provide power when you are turning the pedals.  Under factory settings, the motor will stop providing assistance after you reach 20 MPH. 

Class 2

Class 2 E-bikes have the ability to propel the bike without using the pedals.  They have a 20 MPH restriction. 

University Bicycles does not sell Class 2 E-bikes.
