WHAT WE OFFER
Our goal is to offer the Customer other options in the performance Ebike industry. Most Electric bikes are under powered when it comes to riding up steep roads, off road trails and higher speeds and longer distances. Almost all electric bikes on the market today only offer 250w – 1000w systems with top speeds of only 17mph-25mph and true ranges of only 10-25 miles tops. Most Ebike companies boast 40 – 50 – 60 miles or more in range which in truth are a fraction of those distances. Our top speeds and battery ranges have been tested and proven on video. If you want to go 20mph and your Ebike’s top speed is 20mph. That means you are putting a maximum load and stress on that motor and system. Which will eventually breakdown with heat or design failure. (would you drive your car in the redline on the freeway- of course not.) An Ebike has to pull its own weight, pull the weight of a rider, battle wind resistance, battle the road itself (smooth or rough conditions) and to top it off battle uphill against gravity. Remember a 500w motor system is only 2/3 of 1 horsepower. These bikes just can’t hold up over the long hall with those conditions. The Solution is you need more power. In most cases you need 4 to 10 times more power to actually ride safer in traffic, get to where you want to go and to not stress your bike in getting there which will make it last for many years to come. Today, most underpowered “good” Ebikes with quality components on the bike with a decent battery are priced between $1800 to $3000. Any less than that and you know the old saying “your going to get what you paid for” for a little bit more you can get a bike from Top Gun Bikes that is 4 to 6 times more powerful and will go faster, travel longer distances and last longer with a Top Gun Bikes model or HPC Model.
I hear this quite a bit from new Ebike buyers. “what is the law for riding a higher powered Ebike over 750w” well here is a link you can click for each state https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_bicycle_laws 19 States have no laws what’s so ever or no speed limits. The rest make up their own requirements from 20-35mph with most state laws are still based on a gas engine “motorbike”. The Truth is Governments can only go so far when regulating a transportation device that can be powered by a motor and human power. When riding the bike how does someone know if the speed traveled is from the rider or motor at that moment. They cant. If you ride the bike RESPONSIBLY and with the flow of traffic and you don’t impede, bother or endanger someone else with your bike then law enforcement does not care regardless if your bike is "Legal" or not at that particular location or at that particular speed. Use COMMON SENSE and you will never have any problems. (Except in Manhattan, NY). The Federal guideline on electric bike imports from china (AND 99.9% OF ALL EBIKES THAT ARE 250W – 1000W ARE MADE IN CHINA AND SHIPPED HERE TO USA) have a limit of 750w to stay under the consumer protection act laws. If you import higher powered electric bikes more than 750w than the bikes have to meet the DOT – Department of Transportation rules and requirements for a road vehicle (AKA Motorcycle). Top Gun Bikes is a custom builder not a production line manufacturer and importer. So we only produce a few hundred bikes a year and with ebikes not required to have a license, registration or insurance (unlike a DOT vehicle) are considered a bicycle. We personally ride 35-40mph in a 40mph zone in the bike lane next to police. Never been harassed or questioned other than the officer saying” Nice bike” at the light. If someone does 30mph on a nonelectric bicycle down a street with an elementary school just getting out with 100s of kids everywhere crossing the street then their an idiot and will get pulled over ticketed and scolded for such bad actions. If someone does 50mph on an electric bike between cars in stopped traffic and run a red light on top of that. That person is an idiot and deserves what the police are going to legally through at that guy. Point is always be a responsible rider and will not have any problems. But as a last resort if you want to follow the law no matter what we can install a 3 way switch which will in the low setting limit your bike to no more than 750w of output.
