    We have EBikes and have seen on web EBike replacement rails. I know about the Weight difference, But wondering if anyone has changed theirs.

    Changed mine from the standard rail supplied with fiamma rack to ebike rails they are about 100mm longer to allow for the extra length on a ebike.
    Easy job just a couple of bolts to undo and tighten.

    We never changed our standard rails when we got our Ebikes, (Kalkhof Aguttu's which are longer than standard push bikes) The Ebikes still fit on with a couple of inches spare either end of the rails. Have you measured your wheel centres to see if you need to change ?

    I have 2 kalkhof ebikes one did fit on the rail but the other one was border line so I decided to change the rails so yes I agree it is worth measuring your wheel centres.
    I was told when buying the rails that they where a bit more robust than the standard rail to allow for extra weight but when they arrived not a lot of difference.
