Dual electric/paddle bikes to solve paddling effort issues
I prefer the good old paddling bike. For obvious reasons, I cannot get to the office sweating, and I have no time to shower before I get into the office.
I have no issues biking uphill and steep road segments. However, the electric bike has changed all of that. In addition, the bike seat had to be lowered to suit my short stature, so that I can put my feet on the ground when I stop. This makes paddling uncomfortable and bad to the knees, because they are bent too much..
Details of the problem: My bike has a rear-wheel built-in electric motor. It cannot be connected or disconnected. I can either turn the system on or off. However, that does not solve the problem. In my experience, paddling with an electric bike is much harder than with a regular bike. I can paddle a bike uphill with a reasonable speed. However, an electric bike is even hard to start paddling from zero, and even maintaining the same speed as the motor is not longer than a minute. After some time, I had to
Not sure if I understand your question correctly, but I take it you want to ride unassisted during training/recreational rides?
I don’t have much experience with electric bicycles but as far as I’m aware the motor often has its own free-wheel and therefore should contribute very little friction/resistance when it’s not running. The disadvantage of such a free-wheel equipped motor is that regenerative braking is not possible. So if you remove the battery the only major disadvantage of an electric bike should be the mass/weight of the motor and charging controller. With front wheel drive it should even be possible to swap the whole front wheel+motor for a normal wheel relatively quickly.
Of course many electric bikes come with “comfortable” seating positions, heavy frames and other heavy parts. This doesn’t help when you want to ride unassisted.2018-06-20 12:00:49
