How Much Does it Cost to ride an Electric Bike? Been thinking about trading in your second car for an ebike? Or purchasing an electric bike to cut costs on your daily commute? You are not alone!

One of the most important components onboard any ebike is the battery management system, or BMS for short, it does exactly what the name describes: it manages the batteries used to power your ebike. For the casual rider, you don’t really need to know anymore about BMS systems, just remember that if your ebike battery is having serious performance issues, it’s likely due to a faulty BMS. For the more dedicated ebike owners who want to understand every component of their ebike, here is our simplified BMS guide
The Unconquered Custom is a vintage ebike with all the style of a beautiful old Indian or Harley, but with the stripped-back, lightweight, and futuristic simplicity that comes with an electric motor instead of a noisy engine. It’s a vintage ebike that rides like a motorcycle, feels like a motorcycle, and draws the eyes of the crowd as any vintage ebike should.
Electric vehicles are becoming all the rage these days. Despite these awesome technological marvels, the bicycle itself is not completely dead.

On an electric bike with no pedals, you can engage the electric motor and accelerate your bike via a twist or thumb throttle.
To create an accurate comparison and answer the ebike range question properly, we conducted a real-world ebike range test using an Unconquered Custom ebike laced with our standard 1 hp electric geared hub motor then conducted testing using 3 different sizes of lithium-ion batteries + a dual battery configuration. Hopefully you can benefit from the knowledge below and make more informed purchase decisions based on our, findings and your personal range requirements.
