E-Bikes: What to Know
So you are thinking about getting an e-Bike? That is exciting! We at the Hub are seeing more and more folks in the Twin Cities choosing e-Bikes and are excited to be a part of your journey into electric two wheels.
E-Bikes have the potential to improve one's life in many ways. They can increase accessibility for folks getting to and from work, school, or other activities without the use of a car. They can encourage more bike mobility for people who may have muscle/joint pain or other health concerns that prevent them from traditional biking. Lastly, e-Bikes are fun!
Below we have compiled various resources regarding e-Bike safety, selection, maintenance, and benefits. Take a look, and if you have further questions, come visit us at our Minnehaha location (and maybe even test ride a few bikes while you are here!)

Call2Recycle: E-Bike Battery Recycling Program
One day, your e-bike battery will reach its end of life. When that time comes, that battery needs to be specially handled to keep the environment, people, and property safe. It should not be put in a trash or recycling bin.
As participants in Call2Recycle's E-Bike Battery program, we at the Hub are able to recycle E-Bike batteries from select brands.
Have an e-bike battery to recycle?
Check to ensure the brand is participating in the program and then find a drop off location here.
If not on the list, please contact the manufacturer for their recycling solution.
E-Bikes need service too! We are happy to give you an estimate and provide service for a wide range of e-Bike makes and models. However, there are some bikes we are not able to work on due to safety reasons.
We CANNOT work on:
- e-Bike conversions
- Dirt bikes
- Gas powered engines
- e-Bikes with motorcycle or moped parts
If you have any questions about whether or not we can work on your bike, please give us a call at 612-729-0437 or visit our shop!
