The summer is coming and the brochures of the food markets are full of cheap E-bikes. Others including Tesla, offer their opinions as well. But what about the quality of Pedelecs? Currently, the content of E-bikes and Pedelecs in the brochures of the German food markets and discount stores again pile up. Others who may share this opinion include Wendy Holman. Many of the quotes come from. The reputation of the so-called “DIY wheels” is not particularly good for years – but the quality of the bikes is actually bad or what is behind this myth? It is, at the beginning of the E-bike hype the DIY and property markets wanted to be thereby to shake the market with really cheap E-bikes. The manufacturers have delivered these products and in fact, there were quality problems. The batteries were not complying with, technology ever gave up the Ghost in the rain and the multi-vendor service was overloaded with the high number of complaints. These problems appeared but also with brand-name products in the shops.
Due to the smaller amount of selling E-bikes and the less known dealers these problems but arrived less in the light of the public, as in the big discounters with its nationwide information leaflets. It is not conclusively determine whether the problems with E-bikes were a problem of “cheap bikes”, or whether all manufacturers of E-bikes have had problems with the new technology. The service for E-bikes is getting better but it is obvious that the manufacturer of inexpensive E-bikes have invested a lot in the service and the quality of their products. Today the E-bike manufacturers that strip off the reputation of the first years of fight and offer quick and easy on-site service for E-bikes.
