The Start of an AVE e-Bike Love Affair

Posted by e-bike World Record Holder Gary Corbett on Feb 6, 2018 1:34:40 PM

It’s not a declaration I would normally make in such a public way, but sometimes a man just has to say it as it is, so here goes … I have fallen in love.

But before you jump to all the wrong conclusions about the object of my desire don’t worry, my gorgeous wife, Rachel, doesn’t mind one little bit because, like me, she is just as smitten about her own new love.

What Kilometre Range Can You Expect From Your E-Bike?

Posted by e-bike World Record Holder Gary Corbett on Dec 15, 2017 5:03:00 AM

It is a question everyone who is contemplating the purchase of an e-bike asks, “what range can I expect”.

Unfortunately the true answer is that there is no easy answer … essentially the comeback reply is, “how long is a piece of string?” such are the complexities of the answer.

But never one to shirk a tough situation and with the experience of 27,800 kilometres of pedalling to a world e-bike long distance record on a Bosch-powered e-bike under my belt, I guess I am as well qualified as anyone to give a definitive answer, sort of.

In fact, around the same time German inventor Karl Benz built what is now widely accepted to have been the world’s first automobile in 1885/86, a raft of inventors had already – or were well on their way -  to conceiving, designing and building the first electric bicycles.

New TH11 Adventure e-Bike First Ride Impressions

Posted by e-bike World Record Holder Gary Corbett on Oct 27, 2017 4:14:53 PM

Ask any first-time e-bike rider what they thought of the experience and the result is inevitably a tirade of adjectives.

Amazing, incredible, extraordinary, magnificent, wonderful, marvellous, remarkable, phenomenal … the list of adjectives used goes on and on such is the positivity of the experience.

And, as I discovered all too graphically recently after test riding two AVE e-bikes for the first time, you don’t have to be a first timer on an e-bike to experience what is widely recognised within the ebike industry as the “e-bike smile”.
