Sizing chart:

  • The bike comes in three different sizes to comfortably fit riders from 160cm to 188cm (26" wheels) and 170cm to 198cm (28" wheels)

Bike Maintenance:

NCM electric bikes are very reliable and is very easy to find spare parts because the brand is the most popular in Australia. Although not frequently an issue, fixing any electronic problems will be reasonably priced and many e-bike shops will have sufficient knowledge to repair.

 

Owning a NCM e-bike you can expect to spend similar amount on upkeep maintenance as you would with a standard bicycle; the main difference is that you may need to change the brake pads more frequently than a normal bike; around every 600km to 900km depending how you ride and how heavy you are.
