Owning a Pedego

Maintenance

Aside from keeping your battery charged, maintaining a Pedego Electric Bike is the same as any bicycle. After the bike’s been ridden about 100 kilometres you’ll need a basic tune-up. This is standard procedure for all new bikes as they’re broken in.

The most important (and simple) thing you can do is check your tire pressure regularly, and keep them inflated as indicated on the tire. If you’re riding in wet conditions, you’ll want to take extra care and make sure you keep your drivetrain clean and well-lubed.

Other than that, you’re likely to need minor adjustments from time to time, and even the best parts do eventually wear out. We suggest that you bring it in for a check-up at least once or twice a year to ensure the most safe and pleasant riding experience.

Security

We suggest investing in a good, solid lock – available through your local Pedego dealer. Always make sure that what you are locking the bike to is also secure.

The battery can be locked in place or easily removed and taken with you.

Check with your homeowner’s insurance policy to see if the bike is covered. If not, there is supplemental insurance available through third party carriers.

Travel

Many Pedego owners bring their bikes along while travelling. It’s the best way to explore a new area!

The Latch folding bike is especially well suited for travel.

Other Pedego models are compatible with many standard hitch mounted vehicle racks. Check with your local dealer for suggestions.

Warranty

When you invest in a Pedego Electric Bike, you’ll enjoy the peace of mind of an industry leading two year warranty, including labor. Of course, a warranty is only as good as the company behind it, and Pedego has a well deserved reputation for world-class customer care.

We’re proud of the uncompromising quality of our products, but nothing in this world is perfect. Even the best products are bound to have an occasional issue that needs to be resolved. We see every warranty issue, no matter how small, as an opportunity to go above and beyond for you and show you how much we care. You’ll probably never need us, but it’s nice to know that Pedego is always here for you.

Electric Bike Laws

Federal law defines an electric bike as a two or three wheeled vehicle with fully operable pedals, a top speed when powered solely by the motor under 32 km/hr and an electric motor that produces 500 watts or less.

Provincial and local regulations, while seldom enforced, vary greatly. Check with your local authorities to see what the rules are.

Weight Capacity

The weight capacity of most Pedego Electric Bikes is 250 pounds (113 kg).

The exceptions are the Tandem and Stretch models which can carry up to 400 pounds (181 kg).

The Boomerang Plus and Interceptor, when equipped with the Mag Wheel Upgrade, can also hold up to 400 pounds (181 kg).
