Many do not want to get overheated before going into the office. A daunting ride on a traditional bicycle becomes almost effortless on a pedal-assist electric bike. Electric bikes help promote cycling as a viable mode of alternative transportation and encourage people to bike to places they would normally drive.
R Martin electric bicycles are not classified as motor vehicles and therefore require no license or insurance to operate. By combining high-quality lithium batteries and high-efficiency motors, R Martin bikes can travel 30+ miles per charge with little or no pedaling. This makes them a popular choice for short urban commuting trips without the expense and hassle of traditional gas-powered transportation.
Electric bicycles are also a perfect complement to public transportation. Commuters can take their electric bikes on the train or bus — providing an easy method of getting to your office or shopping without the long walk.
The new "R" models — R10, R11, R12, and R13 — use a patented crank style motor that is 50% more efficient than previous hub motors. This makes the new models excellent for hill climbing or cruising to the office, school, store or around town.
Companies looking to promote eco-conscious products are offering R Martin bikes as alternative transportation in several markets across the country. These dealers provide sales and service for all of the R Martin products. Consumers can also purchase R Martin electric bikes direct through the http://www.electricbikedistributor.com website.
"We are pleased to be able to offer clean, affordable alternative transportation to our customers," said Randall Schleier, sales manager at R Martin Limited. "While there is a lot of hype surrounding hybrid and electric vehicles, electric bikes are reliable and cost-effective today. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on gas/electric hybrids to ‘go green’ and get out of the car," continued Mr. Schleier.
R Martin bicycles use a small electric motor and powerful lithium battery packs mounted inconspicuously on the bicycle to propel the rider. The rider can pedal or just use the variable-speed twist throttle to cruise at speeds up to 20 mph, making cycling up a hill or carrying a heavy load a breeze. R Martin bicycles are winning over a growing number of eco-conscious people in the US.
