Frequently Asked Questions

How does CF1 LINO work? Can I still ride it when it's out of battery?

CF1 LINO is a bicycle with battery-powered assist that activates when pedaling. When you push the pedal with power assist on, a small motor revs up and gives you a boost. The sensor on the pedal crank bearing detects how hard you pedal and boosts your ride with right amount of power until you hit 20 mph.

With power assist off or when it runs out of battery, you can still ride CF1 LINO like a standard bicycle. It's the best of both worlds.

Do I need a license to ride CF1 LINO? 

CF1 LINO is a class 1 e-bike, which doesn't require a license in most states. As of May 2022, a license is required in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Rhode Island. Laws and policies regarding electric bicycles change with time, so always check with your municipalities when in doubt.

Can I ride CF1 LINO in the rain or snow? 

Yes, you can. And we love to see the commitment. CF1 LINO is IPX5 waterproof, so it’s safe to ride in light rain. Where possible, ride and store your bike in temperatures between 32° to 95°F. This will prolong the battery life.

Do I need to download the app to use the bike?

No, you don’t, but it does improve the overall riding experience.

That being said, one of the best things about CF1 LINO is its versatility. You can jump on and ride like a normal bicycle. Or, you can connect the BESV Smart App and get serious about your ride with data, explore new areas, plan your trip, and so much more.

Can I just go to any bicycle shops for maintenance or issues with my CF1 LINO?

Any bicycle shop can help you with a mechanical-related task or maintenance inquiries, such as brake, shifting, or derailleur adjustments. CF1 LINO is robust and doesn't need much more maintenance than a regular bike. If you run into electrical issues, contact us for troubleshooting.

What's CF1 LINO's riding range?

CF1 LINO can travel up to 65 miles on a single charge if it's a sunny day and you ride on flat, paved roads with an average speed of 20 mph. This estimate assumes you weigh 150 lbs and ride on eco mode the whole time. An e-bike’s riding range is determined by a combination of factors, including speed, terrain, bicycle weight, level of pedal assist, rider body weight, cargo weight, wind, and cadence.

Do I need special tools or a specialist to assemble the bike when it arrives?

You'll be happy to hear the CF1 LINO arrives 90 percent assembled and comes with all tools required. Just follow this two-minute video, and you’ll be up and riding in no time.
