How Do Electric Bikes Work?
E-bikes run on an electric motor that draws power from the lithium ion battery pack. Most electric bikes can be propelled forward by manually pedaling, using the throttle in addition to pedaling, or using just the throttle. Each Electric Bike has all three modes built in.
On a side note, if you are about to buy an electric bike that doesn't allow you to pedal manually, you most likely are about to buy a moped. Please step away, take a few steps back, turn around, and walk out the door. Grab any complimentary snacks and drinks on your way out.
