commute, electric bike, folding, G3, gocycle, pannier, review, tested -

Gocycle designer Richard Thorpe says, I use my Gocycle daily for commuting and running errands. The hassle-free convenience Gocycle offers is unmatched. But when it comes to carrying stuff, traditional bike panniers just don’t cut it! They’re cumbersome, inconvenient, and ugly, and my complete dissatisfaction with using them has led to the development of a new, no-compromise front pannier designed specically for Gocycle. We started by maximising all usable space, using expanding pockets wherever possible - the rear facing double baguette holders being a personal favourite! We’ve chosen lightweight, water resistant materials and selected moulded zip pullers for easy access...

Raleigh have responded to the electric bike boom with the new range for 2017 consisting of fourteen models. At the top of the range are the Bosch-powered Motus and the Shimano Steps fully-auto Strada Electric, and at the £1,000 entry-level mark is the new Array. Coming in both crossbar and step-through versions, and in three different colour combinations (Navy, Black, and Denim - light blue!), the Array is sure to satisfy anyone looking for a commuter / runabout electric bike that is very simple, very smart, and very kind on the wallet (£42 a month on Raleigh’s interest-free credit). There’s...

electric bike, haibike, review, SDURO, tested, Yamaha -

Electric Bike Review posted this great video. As they say, the Haibike SDURO AllMtn RC is an all mountain trail + downhill mid drive powered electric bike with 150mm air suspension, rigid thru axles (15mm front 142 x 12mm rear). Impressive 20 speed drivetrain with quality Shimano Deore XT groupset, capable Shimano M615 hydraulic disc brakes (203mm front 180mm rear). Ebike specific frame with internally routed cables and wires, custom motor interface and downtube side-slide battery keeps weight low and center for balance. No shift sensing with the Yamaha drive system but it relies more on torque so easing off while...
