Lately, we’ve been observing an increasing number of cyclists on electric bikes. If you’ve been tempted to give it a try, you’ve likely encountered the dilemma of whether to buy an electric bike or rent one whenever you need it.
The purchase of an electric bike requires careful consideration, as a quality e-bike with quality equipment can cost several thousand euros. You need to be certain about how often you’ll be cycling, to ensure the bike doesn’t become an expensive toy that you only take out of the garage occasionally. Additionally, you should be aware that the maintenance and regular servicing of an electric bike should be entrusted to a professional, as you must not tamper with its software settings and functions without authorization. So, include the cost of regular annual servicing when budgeting for an e-bike. We strongly recommend regular annual servicing, as it also ensures all system software upgrades.
In our cycling agency, we specialize in the e-diagnostics of Bosch brand batteries, one of the most widespread and high-quality battery brands for e-bikes.
Conversely, in the case of renting an electric bike, you only pay for its use when and where you need it. If you enjoy exploring various places in Slovenia, you’ll have the e-bike delivered to your destination without the hassle of transportation. The bike will always be impeccably prepared, regularly serviced, and after using it, you won’t have any further responsibilities. Reputable bike rental shops typically replace their bike fleets every season or two, keeping up with cycling trends and user needs. Therefore, you’ll almost always find a relatively new bike for rent, with a selection of modern models, including the latest bike models available to you.
