Welcome to the VeloNews Tech podcast, where we discuss complex tech topics and distill them down into terms we can all understand.

Are you shocked at how common e-bikes have become? We decided to learn more about the basics of how electric-assist bikes work.

To help us understand e-bikes, we called up Jonathan Weinert, sales and marketing manager at Bosch. He explains how the motors give you that tailwind sensation, the technology behind the batteries, and how e-bikes have evolved.

All that and more on this episode of the VeloNews tech podcast.
