Matrack Solutions For Electric And Manual Bikes

The problem of bike theft in the USA, is extremely discouraging for riders to enjoy their much loved bike rides. The primary setbacks for a commercial bike fleet as well are theft, traffic, inefficiency, etc. What if you found a solution to secure your fleet by tracking it from anywhere? Be it a manual or an electrical bike, a single bike owner or a fleet owner, Matrack facilitates you with the latest technology to track your bike where ever it goes. Technology has advanced to a point where you can gain access to a vehicle that is miles away from you through your phone or computer. Looking past how good this may sound, it is also convenient in many more ways. Before we take a peek at the solutions and convenience, let us first understand manual and electric bikes in detail.

The difference between manual bikes and electric bikes

Manual bikes are actually very similar to electric bikes. Their appearance and standard components are just the same. An electric bike can be repaired and serviced at the same store as the manual bike at the same cost. However, if the repair involves an electric damage then it would require an electric bike skilled official for service. Enlisted below are a few differences that make an electric bike different from a manual one.

  • An electric bike runs on a lightweight motor and hence requires no effort while pedalling.
  • A manual bike on the other hand requires effort while pedalling or it will not move forward.
  • Electric bikes will only touch a specific speed {about 25 kmh (15.5 mph)} depending on its motor and would never be able to cross that limit unless pedalled manually thereafter.
  • Manual bikes can reach any speed depending on the power excised by the rider while pedalling.
  • Electric bikes need to be electrically charged while manual bikes do not require any charging.
  • An electric bike can only work for a little more than 3 hours after charging, whereas a manual bike can be used for as long as the rider pedals.
  • The distance, time, speed and battery life can be assessed on an electric bike. Some advanced bikes also have a fitness tracking meter. Manual bikes do not have any of these features.
  • Electric bikes are effortless and easier to ride. They don’t tire the rider. Manual bikes aim for a complete workout. They require effort and get very tedious after a while.

For a long time, manual bikes have been dominating the world of cycling, especially because they were the only bikes available in that time. Off late, electric bikes, due to their convenience, seem to be taking over.

However, electric or manual the bike be, the issue of theft still prevails in the biking sector. Here’s where a good GPS system can serve as a formidable solution for every biker.

Let us now take a look at Matrack solutions for electric and manual bikes, and understand whom all will it help and how.

Matrack offers a range of GPS trackers for bikes, both electric and manual.

  • The GPS device comes in two options; OBD and Portable.
  • OBD devices can only be used in motorbikes while Portable devices can be used in both motorbikes as well as bicycles.
  • Unfortunately theft can never be avoided. However, a GPS tracker can help you find your bike immediately after it has been stolen, with its precise location tracking feature.
  • Due to the light weight of the bicycles, they become prone to theft as it is easy to be hijacked. Thieves often dismantle a bike soon after stealing it so that it cannot be recognized by the owner. This would however not hamper the functioning of the GPS tracker.
  • The device indicates when it is time for service by keeping a tab on vehicle maintenance. This feature makes sure that your bike is in top condition before you set yourself on a trip or any ride for the instance.
  • It also gives traffic indication which helps you choose the best route for your ride. The device also provides maps that help with navigation. In this way there is hardly a fear of getting lost while on a trip to an unknown place.
  • A GPS tracker is of great help to fleet owners and other sectors like; food delivery companies, bike sharing companies, courier service companies, the police, emergency organizations, etc.
  • If you are an owner of a bike fleet, installing a GPS tracker to the bicycles in your fleet can prove to be very helpful. The bike owner can track every trip made by his employee/customer through the device.
  • GPS trackers have also managed to make record maintaining extremely easy.
  • For the commercial biking sector Matrack provides unique solutions that help with increasing productivity thus keeping profits at their best.
  • Various devices possess various features. Some include features such as weather alerts, driver cameras, salt and sand spreader tracker, hours of service recorder, etc.
  • The device can be accessed through an application on your phone. So you can keep a track of the bike from anywhere just through the application.
  • A GPS tracker does not only keep the bike safe, but if installed on assets, it can keep your luggage safe as well.
  • The device helps save both time and money.
  • With the help of the tracker, parents can now have access to their child’s location, weather conditions, traffic conditions, etc. with a simple application installed on their phone.

GPS trackers are a boon the technology sector offers. This advancement is indeed commendable due to the convenience it brings about. In the earlier days, it was rather difficult to monitor kids when they were on the go. Even commercially it was tough to keep a track on fleet movements leaving employees with a lot of room for misleading data and dishonesty. However, Matrack provides with solutions that diminish such issues, making it all the more convenient for both riders and bike/fleet owners.
