With the popularity for electric, power assisted bikes growing at a fantastic rate the demand for parts, spares and accessories has also increased.
There are motor drive systems offered by a range of manufacturers including Bosch, Yamaha and Shimano along with bike brand specific systems from Giant and Specialized. J E James cycles understand how difficult it can be to find the correct, compatible batteries, motors, head units, cables and other sundries. Our e-Bike Accessories & Parts category will assist in helping you locate the correct part for your e-Bike.
Today’s e- Bikes may also come with specific wheel tyre systems, along with chains, chain sets and chain rings that are built to take the additional wear and tear placed on such items by the additional torque of an e-Bike.
Batteries for e-Bikes are built to give plenty of cycling hours but, like any rechargeable battery, they deteriorate over time and may not, after a couple of years, offer the same constant power for as long as it used to. A new battery is certainly more cost effective than replacing the bike and batteries with different power output and fittings vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, model to model.
Head units for e-Bikes offer all the information you require to ensure you don’t run out of power, along with distance, time, speed etc. Some disciplines of cycling may decrease the lifetime of such delicate items and a replacement may be required or perhaps a sensor has come adrift during a ride. Such misfortunes can happen to anyone but it’s nice to know they are replaceable.
As for tyres, naturally if the tyre is the same size and fitting there’s nothing to say which you should fit, but some tyre manufacturers are making tyres that offer more durability for e-Bikes giving you a longer lasting tyre for many more road and trail riding miles.
So if you’re fortunate enough to ride an e-Bike but need help finding the right part, check out our e-Bike Accessories and Parts section.
