That brings us to the end of the Teslica Line up. But before we end, let's discuss a few common questions.
Fat Tires vs Regular Size Tires?
One of the biggest misunderstandings in the ebike community is about fat tires, you may have been told that fat tires are only for riding on snow and offroading, but that is not the case anymore.
More and more people are buying fat tire ebikes, even if they only plan to ride them on paved paths, and the reasons for this are these advantages:
1- Fat tires are more comfortable: Let's admit it, our roads do suffer from a few potholes here and there. This is because fat tires can be pumped to a lower air pressure, adding a new layer of "suspension" between you and the road. This lets the tire roll over pumps and crack on the road, rather than hit them or fall in them.
2-Fat tires give you more control: This is because fat tires have more contact area with the road, making sure the tire always has good grip, which means that you will not slide as easily over slippery sections of the road.
3- Fat tires give you more stability: If you were to balance something, it would be easier to do so the wider the base is. This is the same with bikes, fat tires will give you more stability no matter the speed.
So now, you may ask, what are the disadvantages of fat tires?
1- Fat tires will have less range: This is because fat tires grip the road more than a thinner tire does, leading to more resistance, leading to less range. It must be noted however that we put bigger size motors and batteries on fat tires, to compensate for the lost range.
2- Fat tires are typically heavier: The bigger wheels will usually add up a bit of weight to the bike. Thankfully the added weight will not harm you during your ride, as you will have assistance in taking the bike up hills.
What is the most important factor when buying an ebike?
Truth be told, ebikes are fun! No matter where you get them from, but they are only fun when they work, and all bikes, either electric or not, are bound to run into multiple issues during their lifetime. Therefore, we recommend getting an ebike from a place that can service it, and make sure they always have a good stock of all spare parts and accessories. We, at Teslica, stock up on all of our spare parts so that our customers never have to wait to get their bikes back on the road.
How much should an ebike cost?
Ebike prices can vary widely. At Teslica we only sell our own brand of ebikes with our factory direct model. This helps us cut out the costs of middle men, allowing us to sell our bikes at a lower price point while still providing excellent quality, more accessories and features. Our ebikes start at just $1,399 and end at $2,399.
We hope that this has been informative and helpful! Please remember that the best way to figure out which ebike is best for you is to chat with one of our friendly staff and take different models on test rides.
