Some of our services:

E-bike Building

Why would you want a professional e-bike technician assembling your new Direct-To-Consumer e-bike for you? 

Buying an e-bike online and having it shipped to you for final assembly is a great way of saving yourself some money. This can however have its drawbacks. 

When you buy from a local bike shop, you pay more for many reasons. One of the main ones being that the bike gets a thorough inspection by a professional mechanic before assembly and any issues like paint left behind on the brake tabs, or not properly adjusted parts can be remedied easily at this time. 

Generally speaking, Direct-To-Consumer e-bike brands don’t have a great reputation for final quality control checks before shipping your new e-bike to you. This is where Ride All Day comes in to make sure your e-bike is as safe and fun to ride as any from a more expensive local shop.

Have you checked your brake pads recently? The one on the left is NOT what you want to see!

Worn Brake Pads!

Have you inspected your brake pads recently? 99% of e-bikes come with an "organic" brake pad. Which are quiet and quick to bed in, but they wear out very quickly. Especially here in Nelson, where you may have noticed the slight angle we live on...

We only use "metallic" compound brake pads when available.

PLEASE CHECK YOUR BRAKE PADS OFTEN!
