Does the Porteur recharge while you’re pedaling?
No, it does not. It could, but that would make it a LOT heavier and a LOT harder to ride… you wouldn’t have nearly as much fun, we promise.
Does the Porteur have regenerative braking?
No, No, it does not. Regenerative braking may be great for cars, but it’s not as good for electric bikes. Instead, the Faraday Porteur has conventional high quality disc brakes and a quick charger to fill up the battery in no time.
Does the Porteur have a warranty?
The Porteur carries a two year warranty on all components, frame, and batteries.
Are Faraday electric bikes sold internationally?
We’re very sorry that we can’t support sales outside of North America at this time. If you’re an interested international customer or distributor, please get in touch! You can join our mailing list or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know as soon as the Porteur becomes available in your country. Thanks for your understanding.
How do I get my Faraday serviced?
Servicing the Faraday Porteur is just like servicing a conventional bicycle. In fact, with the super-robust Shimano Alfine hub, your electric bike shouldn’t require much servicing at all! In the event that your Faraday’s electronics need to be serviced, contact Faraday’s service department and we’ll connect you with a local bike shop who can quickly replace any damaged components and get you back on the road.
How does the Faraday turn on and off?
The Faraday turns on with a simple “ON” button on the rear of the bike. Once ON, you can control whether the pedal assist is enabled, disabled, or in “boost” mode with the Faraday’s thumb switch. That’s it!
