Electric Cycles are bicycles, scooters, motorcycles, and more. Electric vehicles are very dynamic because usually the motor is in the hub. That means that we can build you anything your heart desires.
Albuquerque Electric Cycles is the premier electric bicycle shop in Albuquerque. We provide high quality electric bikes, the best service in town, and there is never a charge for advice. We are committed to serving our community for all its electric vehicle needs. We can custom build any project that you can think of.
Electric vs. gas.
Electric motors are 85-90% efficient. Compare that to 35% efficiency for the best gasoline engines. Most small motors are 2-stroke and get much worse efficiency. This means that you are wasting less when you go electric. Plus, electric vehicles can be charged using wind or solar power, giving you a zero-carbon footprint.
Pays for itself in one year.
If you ride an electric bike or scooter to work every day, you will save hundreds on insurance for your car, you won't have to pay for gasoline (e-bikes cost $0.005 per mile to charge), you won't have oil to change, you won't have wear and tear on you car, no registration fees, no emissions tests, no expensive tires to replace, etc. The list goes on and on.
Get exercise, reduce stress, enjoy life.
Albuquerque is the perfect place to ride a bike. The weather is great and you can usually ride here over 340 days a year. There are over 500 miles of bike trails and bike lanes so you can ride safely. Riding a bike reduces stress and gives you a workout. Sure you could ride a regular bike, but most people give that up right away because it becomes very difficult to climb a hill, carry a load, or push into a head-wind or they just don't like showing up at work all sweaty. With an electric bike those problems are solved. Only sweat as much or as little as you want. Take it easy on the way to work, then get a good workout on the way home. Carry all your documents, books, groceries, whatever with no extra effort. Plus, you get there faster! Finally, with an electric bike you are more likely to ride often because all of those problems are solved, which means you get exercise more regularly than with a normal bike. So enjoy the sights! Get out and ride!
