Which electric bicycle is right for me?

How does an electric bicycle work?

An electric bicycle consists of a battery, motor and display, among other things. The energy for driving the motor and the display is regulated via a controller. This is a small box in which all cables come together.

Which frame height is right for me?

To give you an idea of ​​the suitable frame height for your electric bicycle, you can use the following table:

Body length -- Frame height

150-165 cm -- 46

155-170 cm -- 49

160-180 cm -- 51/53

170-190 cm -- 56/57

185-195 cm -- 61

190-210 cm -- 65

The correct frame height depends on a number of factors such as your body proportions and the chosen model. That is why we always recommend having your electric bicycle measured by a VanDijck dealer. He will be happy to help you choose the perfect adjustment for your e-bike

What kind of engine do I need?

The suitable type of motor for your electric bicycle depends on your personal preference. The two most common electric bicycle motors are described below.

Mid-engine electric bicycle

An electric bicycle with a mid-engine is considered by many to be a very nice option. Because the motor is located in the middle of the frame, the electric bicycle has a stable road holding and cycling feels very natural. A mid-motor electric bicycle uses a pedal force sensor. When you put a lot of force on the pedals, the motor will also provide more support. If you are cruising slowly and need less support, the mid-engine will adjust accordingly.

Electric bike with front wheel motor

A front-wheel motor electric bicycle brings a different riding experience; you are, as it were, pulled forward. The front-wheel motor is usually more suitable for people who need extra support when accelerating, such as people with joint problems. Front wheel motors are driven by a rotation sensor. This means that the support starts, with a slight delay, when you start pedaling and does not take into account the force you exert.

Which electric bicycle has the largest range?

The range provides an insight into the total number of kilometers you can cover with your electric bicycle. The range is based on a multitude of factors, including weather conditions, level of assistance and the condition of your electric bicycle. To give you an insight into the range of your battery, you can consult the following table.

24.5Ah (882Wh) ~ 120 – 220km
