  • Simply choose the options you'd like and order! You can pick up at our Seattle flagship store, or have the bike shipped to you. Please allow up to 2 weeks for shipment if you've chosen to add the Swift electric assist (highly recommended!).

    The front hub motor works to assist your pedal power. The motor supplies power as soon as you start to pedal, and the amount of power it provides is based on the level that you select on the display. When you stop pedaling, the motor shuts off. You can also purchase a handlebar mounted throttle to engage the motor if you'd like to cruise around without pedaling.

    The Swift system assists to 20mph, or can be unlimited to 24 mph (class 3 e-bike).

    The battery life varies based on numerous factors (the power level used, the rider’s weight, the amount of pedal assistance, cargo, terrain, wind, etc). Even a cargo-bike rider using full power can expect at least 15 miles to a charge, and you get over 60 miles on a standard bike using lower power settings and pedaling normally. Most folks report a battery range between 15 and 40 miles.

    The total system weighs 13.6 lbs, but it replaces your rear wheel, which weighs 2-3 lbs. So it will add 11-12 lbs to your bike, but the power it gives you will offset its weight 20 times over!

    We suggest having this system professionally installed. The cost for this is $99, and generally $99 at most local bike shops comfortable with electric assist installation. If you'd like to install it yourself, please contact us for instructions.

    The entire system comes with a 2-year manufacturer's warranty. Essentially, that means that any damage not caused by an accident or misuse is covered. See the full warranty here.

    It really comes down to how well you, the battery’s owner, care for it. With that said, you can expect a full 400 cycles with the standard charger before the battery life drops to 80% of its original capacity. But with the variable charger, you can extend that number to 1,000 cycles or more. Find out how here. We warranty the battery for 2 years with some stipulations (see warranty section for more information).

    From completely flat, the standard battery takes 6 hours to charge, and the extended battery takes 8 hours to charge. Want faster charging speeds? Check out the variable charger!

    Nope. But don’t leave it plugged in for too long (24 hours or more). It keeps the cells from dropping down to their resting voltage and prematurely ages the pack.

    No! Actually, it's best to not completely discharge the battery. We suggest you simply recharge the battery overnight after riding, regardless of whether it's completely dead or not.
