[/av_toggle] [av_toggle title=’MYTH: These bikes need to recharge by pedaling or they’re not worth it.’ tags=”] [av_dropcap1]FACT:[/av_dropcap1] Pedego electric bikes can boast state-of-the-art lithium ion batteries that charge quickly and have no battery memory issues. So if you take a quick ride, you can plug it in afterward for a quick charge. As for recharging while you ride, remember that the purpose of the motor is to make riding easier. Two things would be necessary for your bike to recharge itself: 1. It would need to gain significant weight in energy-charging machinery. 2. This machinery would need to fight against your pedaling to create friction that leads to a charge. Pedego is all about making it fun and easy to exercise. We think that’s worth a few cents’ worth of electricity. [/av_toggle] [av_toggle title=’MYTH: People on these bikes are cheating.’ tags=”] [av_dropcap1]FACT:[/av_dropcap1] Cheating whom, exactly?
