Given that each bike is individually varnished and fitted with your preferred parts, assembly usually takes three weeks from order confirmation. If you require a different delivery time, please contact us. Depending on the current situation in the production hall, we may be able to agree shorter delivery terms.
There are several options for bike delivery:
How far an electric bike will travel is primarily determined by the type of battery and motor. The weight of the cyclist has a significant effect as does the nature of the terrain and the temperature. We cannot, therefore, answer with a single figure. The following table provides a summary:
|36V 10Ah battery||36V 15Ah battery|
|Front wheel motor||50 – 70 km||70 – 100 km|
|Central drive||65 – 90 km||90 – 120 km|
Given that it is still a bicycle, it is possible to combine regimes (to “help” the motor when going uphill) in order to reach greater distances.
The battery is fully charged in 4-5 hours using a 230V/42V/2A charger, which is supplied with the bike. In the case of a 15 Ah battery, the charging time is 6 – 8 hours.
The cost for 1 km is approximately 0.04 CZK (given the regular price of 4.90 CZK/kWH)
The battery lifespan is measured in the number of working cycles, i.e. the number of discharges and charges while maintaining the same capacity. We use LiION cylindrical battery cells for which the reported number of cycles stands at 800 – 1000.
The Kolos No.3 electric bike, whether with front or central motor does not include reverse charging i.e. a regenerative brake. Reverse charging is not effective due to the low weight of the bike and the rider (theoretical savings of a few percent). Neither motor puts up any resistance so therefore the electric bike can be used as a conventional bicycle.
A 26" electric bike in the basic configuration weighs 22 kg. With a fully equipped electric bike, this weight is very advantageous. The normal weight for similar electric bikes is 25 kg or more.
Kolos No. 3 electric bikes are unique, as they are always tailored to the customer requirements. Any unique product is difficult to steal because it can be easily traced. Each electric bike has its frame number and a certificate specifying the components and the colour.
Electric bikes are delivered within three weeks from order confirmation. Going by this time scale, it is impossible to make them anywhere else than in our country. Kolos® bikes, including electric bikes, are purely Czech made.
Each electric bike is always shipped completely assembled, adjusted and packed in a large 200 x 130 x 25 cm cardboard box. The only parts that need to be installed by yourself are the pedals. Also, in terms of accessories, it is up to you to attach the bag to the racks or to the adapter. You will also need to release the handlebars and turn them in the direction of travel as well as adjust the seat height. Everything else is done. An electric bike can be delivered anywhere. Delivery in the Czech Republic is free of charge, but we will be happy to send you the calculation of the cost should you require international shipping.
A bike service is available in the premises of Citybikes store, address: Nám. Svatopluka Čecha 1348/3, Prague 10. Given that we provide a paid service for personal delivery by our technician, you can order (by phone or email) your faulty bike to be collected then serviced in our store.
Kolos® bikes are made to last with maximum durability and maintenance-free operation. If needed, any bike service can handle the repairs. If necessary, you can consult the service with us, whether with the bike owner or with the technician, who can also order the original spare parts.
