Always practice safe riding while on your e-bike. Here are a few tips to help ensure your safety when riding:
Similar to traditional bicycles, it is recommended to always check the condition of your e-bike before you ride in addition to having regular maintenance performed.
Here is a simple pre-ride checklist to go through before hoping on the saddle:
We recommend always wearing a properly fitted helmet that covers the forehead while riding an e-bike.
Helmets may be required by law in some states and areas. Please familiarize yourself with your local law, rules, and regulations.
Other Safety Gear:
Know your limits and always feel safe while riding. Aside from wearing a helmet, we recommend riders wear safety gear that makes them feel safe while riding. This can mean knee and/or elbow pads and other safety gear.
If riding at night or in low visibility conditions, wear reflective clothing and ensure you have reflectors, headlight, and taillight installed on your e-bike.
While riding age limits vary from state to state and are correlated to the ebike's motor wattage and maximum speed limit, we recommend to be at least 16 years old to operate an e-bike.
Here is a great resource to learn more about your state's ebike laws: https://www.peopleforbikes.org/electric-bikes/state-laws
All of our e-bikes are engineered and designed to be ridden in the rain. They are built to the IPX4 water-resistant standard which means it is resistant to water splashes from any direction.
This does NOT mean that it can be submerged or subjected to a pressurized spray. Do not use a pressure washer or sprayer on an Mee-bike.
Below are some quick tips on riding safely in the rain.
When riding an e-bike at night, it is important to ride extra cautiously. Ensure you are wearing reflective clothing and have the proper safety components on your e-bike such as reflectors, headlights, and taillights.
All bikes (including ebikes) require maintenance over time to keep the bike safe and fun to ride.
We recommend getting an initial tune-up from a local, certified, and reputable bike mechanic within the first 50-100 miles. A tune-up that covers the most common adjustments (like brakes, spokes, derailleur, and tires) will be a great way to keep your bike in great shape.
And please do not forget that this is the most expensive part of your e-bike which needs a little more attention than the other parts of your e-bike.
The best defense against loose components is a routine inspection before every ride. This will help you catch potential problems before they develop into safety hazards. Most pre-ride inspection adjustments can be made with a simple bike multitool. The necessary tools for this are already provided with the bike.
No. The e-bike from Meebike is completely under U.S regulations and laws which allow you to ride it without a specific license.
Your bike will arrive mostly assembled. We'll also provide the tools and a comprehensive assembly video for the rest of the part.
We always recommend the use of a helmet. However, this depends on the specific e-bike class you are riding (I, II, or III), your age, and your state. For more information, visit this page and click on your state.
Ebikes include an electrical drive system. This consists of a battery, a motor, a way to integrate the motor's power into the drivetrain, and a way to control that power. These are the additional components that make an ebike more expensive than a traditional bike.
A step-through frame (also known as open frame or low-step frame) is a type of bicycle frame, often used for utility bicycles, with a low or absent top tube or cross-bar.
Ebikes are just like traditional bikes, you still have to pedal, but can use the assist or throttle on hills or longer commutes to help you get further with less impact on the body. Studies show that ebikes provide the same level of exercise as a traditional bike, as they elevate the heart rate just like a traditional bike, and require pedaling.
Meebike ebikes are made in China in our own Factory, with further assembly and inspection in our Southern California HeadQuarters USA. Unlike many other ebike companies, Meebike is the manufacturer and retailer, cutting out the middleman and allowing us to impact research and development to bring our customers the highest quality bikes for the best value.
An electric bike is legally treated the same as a normal bike. You can ride an electric-assisted bike anywhere you can ride your regular bike.
We use your serial number to automatically register your bike at the time of purchase. Each bike has a serial number stamped on the frame.
1. The torque sensor measures your pedaling effort in real time to provide power, which is not only more power efficient, but allows you to achieve a higher range. And when climbing, the torque sensor provides much more power than the speed sensor.
2. It gives you a sense of control close to that of a conventional bicycle, avoiding the safety hazard of sudden acceleration, but smoothly accelerating under your control. We believe this is an important factor in choosing an electric bike over an electric car or motorcycle.
3.You still have the option to pedal harder when you want to accelerate, which doesn't require you to use very much force or even strain, or just use our throttle to accelerate.
1. The default setting is class-2, 20mph, as required by US law.
2. The limit can be lifted to 25-28, slightly different from the factory setting of different bikes
3. But we do not recommend lifting the speed limit, lifting the speed limit will affect the bike's performance and motor.
4. Why can't you reach 28+mph: To protect the motor and extend the life of the whole bike.
