Frequently Asked
Will I have full control of the bike?

Yes, this is a pedal-assisted e-bike and always requires rider input. When a power assistance level is selected the motor provides a smooth and consistent boost of power to each pedal stroke.

Can I test ride this bike?

You can test ride any of our e-bikes and receive expert buying advice at our flagship Clitheroe showroom. Please contact the showroom in advance so that we can ensure that any suitable bikes that you wish to test are available for your visit. During the summer months, we also host demo events at various locations across the UK. For details of the dates and times of these events please refer to our events page.

Alternatively, you can hire the e-bike from E-Venture Bikes in Keswick, the rental cost will then be deducted from your purchase should you decide to buy one of our e-bikes. We also hope to be able to reinstate the Ribble roadshows which travel around the UK offering people the opportunity to test ride our bikes. We will update the events page of our website and share the details via our social channels once we have any events confirmed.

Do I need tax or insurance to ride this bike?

No, as a pedal-assisted e-bike, limited to a maximum speed of 25kph/15mph, you are not required to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay taxes, or take out insurance.

What exactly is a Step Through bike?

A step through bike’s design includes a sloped top tube (sometime referred to as a crossbar) which allows you to simply step on and off the bike without having to swing your leg over the saddle. This makes it especially suited to riding when wearing restrictive clothing, commuting while dressed in business attire, or for those who have restricted flexibility.

What size bike do I need?

The Urban AL e is available in 3 sizes; Small to fit rider heights 5’0” to 5’6” (152-167cm), Medium 5’6” to 5’10” (168-178cm), 5'10" to 6'2" (178-188cm).

What is the range of the Urban AL e?

This is dependent upon many factors including rider weight/fitness, route profile and ambient temperature. A rider of 90kgs, on a varied route that includes climbs, descents and flats can expect an average distance of approximately 60-miles.

How do I control how much power the motor delivers?

Three power settings are available at the press of a button, low, medium, and max assistance, so you can select the setting that you need to suit the terrain. The bike comes fitted with an iWoc Trio control unit that is conveniently mounted to the handlebars. You can cycle through the assistance levels simply by clicking the upper or lower buttons without having to remove your hands from the handlebars or take your eyes off the road ahead. Check out our blog for a step by step guide to operating the e-bike system.

How much does it weigh?

The total weight including all of its integrated accessories is 17.5kg.

What's the maximum load that the front and rear racks can accommodate?

The maximum load weight for the rear rack is 15kgs and 10kgs for the front rack.

Can I ride this bike in the wet?

The electric components used on our e-bikes are IP54 rated. They are protected against splashing, but not against full immersion. The electric bike should never be subjected to pressurised water from a hose pipe or jet wash. Failure to adhere to this may result in damage to the electrical components that comprise the motor system. When transporting the bike on the outside of a vehicle a waterproof cover should be used to ensure the protection of the electronic components from water ingress during transportation.

How long does it take to charge the battery?

From fully depleted, the battery reaches full capacity in just 3.5 hours and can be charged from any household power socket.

How will I know how much battery remains?

The handlebar mounted iWoc Trio control button has built in LED’s which display how much battery power remains. It displays this using a simple traffic light system, white indicates a full charge, progressing down through Green, Amber and finally Red to indicate that there is 25% or less remaining. The Pulsar One computer also displays relevant system data so you can keep track of your remaining battery power and have all the details of the ride at your fingertips..

What is the widest tyre that I can fit?

The widest tyre that can be accommodated is 40mm.

What if I get a puncture?

It is just as simple as fixing a puncture on a normal bike, except you first need to disconnect the rear wheel by unclipping the connector at the chainstay and releasing the wheel nuts on the axle. Once the puncture has been repaired you simply bolt the wheel back on and connect the cable once again.

What sort of a pump will I need?

The most common type of inner tube valve is the Presta high-pressure valve and this is what this bike comes fitted with. There are a couple of options in terms of a pump, firstly you want something that can be carried either on the bike or in a jersey pocket. The most popular types are.

  • Mini Pump – A small pump that normally includes a clip that can be bolted onto a bottle cage mount on the bike or that is small enough to fit into a cycling jersey pocket or bag.
  • CO2 pump – CO2 pumps use a pressurised CO2 canister to inflate the inner tube, much faster and much more efficient. The only drawback is that a full canister is required for a roadside repair.
  • Hybrid Pump – Some models of pumps are compatible with CO2 canisters as well as having the option to inflate the tube normally. The best of both worlds.

Combi Lock

For those occasions when you do not need a really high security lock, this cable Combi Lock is a great choice for places like a cafe stop. Lightweight but still relatively strong it will stop any opportunist riding away with your bicycle if you turn your back for a few seconds. The resettable combination lock means that there is no need to carry any keys around with you. It’s also long enough to feed through a few bikes and around something secure.

Range Extender Battery

Extend your ride and travel further than ever before with the MAHLE battery extender. This handy addition takes the place of an existing bottle cage mount and plugs directly into the charger port above the bikes bottom bracket and when utilised extends the range by an impressive 70% . When combined with the internally mounted main battery it almost doubles the capacity to a total of 456W/h, allowing you to ride on full assist for up to an extra 2 hours.
