Batribike Delta Local Review

Batribike Delta Local Review

Batribike Delta 2017 Review    ” I recently purchased an ebike from Bude bikes, the process was extremely smooth and the outcome has been life changing. James at Bude Bikes helped me to decide which ebike would suit me best, showing me all the options and also inviting me to an open day where I could see all the ebikes for myself, try them out and also talk to the manufacturers themselves. I settled on a Batribike Delta. Living on a hill in a fairly remote part of North Cornwall has taken the pleasure out of cycling for me over the last few years, and my motivation for exercising had plummeted.         The first time I rode the ebike was a thrill as I could get to the top of the hill out of our hamlet without breaking sweat and feeling like I’d already pulled several muscles. Once onto the main road the ebike really comes into its own; it is fast, solid and cruises along. There is no need to constantly change gear as the motor takes the strain just when you need it. Far from being a soft option the power enables you to cycle further and be out on the bike for much longer, so rather than turning for home knowing you have a long hill to climb on the way back or not going down a long hill knowing you’ve got to come back up it you can just carry on and on. What used to be a strenuous 5 mile unpleasurable experience is now a 10 or 15 mile stress free adventure.         So from not knowing how I was going to keep myself in shape as I get into my fifties I’m now planning trips to places I would only ever have driven to. It has been a great investment and I would recommend it to anyone. “   Dave W. 05.07.18 More details on the Delta can be found by clicking...

Raleigh Pioneer Electric Crossbar

Raleigh Pioneer Electric Crossbar

Raleigh Pioneer Electric Crossbar £1300 £999 Good looking and practical, the Pioneer’s styling is inspired by classic Raleigh bikes and delivers these elements in a modern way. The Pioneer has been a staple in the Raleigh range for many years and continues to be a favourite, so the addition of a TranzX motor just makes it even easier to get around. The Aluminium frame has been designed to be lightweight and feature a comfortable upright riding position with relaxed frame geometry. A fully equipped bicycle featuring a kickstand and colour matched mudguards and rear pannier rack so that you can be kitted out for whatever the journey throws at you. Finished to a high standard with matt metallic finish paint with the classic Pioneer ‘pinstripe’ in silver and fitted with a comfort Selle Royal saddle which has plastic scuff guards on the sides to prevent damage. The F15 motor featured on the Pioneer electric is a powerful, geared front wheel motor which provides great hill climbing assistance, and allows you to quickly pull away at junctions or traffic lights. Adopting the latest gear design allows the motor to be kept relatively small and quiet compared to other front wheel motor systems. The simple LED display indicates the level of power you are using and the remaining battery charge. The Pioneer’s 400wh battery provides a range of 50 – 80km* on a single charge dependent on the level of assistance selected and is easily removed to charge when needed. Motor systems from TransX benefit from new communications technology, which ensures that the motor maximises the battery range, and will allow your dealer to set the bike up for you via a USB link. Handle-mounted power controls are placed close to the grips, so you can easily select from the four power levels, and use the speed button to give you an extra boost when travelling on more undulating terrain. If you are looking for a bit more assistance then relax and shift your way through the smooth Shimano 8 speed Altus gear system that can be changed with a twist of the wrist. The bike rides on strong double wall wheel rims that are shod with puncture resistant CST Zeppelin tyres designed specifically for e-bikes and featuring reflective strips to make your ride safer. High quality lights which are integrated into and powered by the motor system have also been included for safety. Available in both a crossbar frame and a low step frame in a choice of colours, the Pioneer is a sophisticated traveller with the attention to detail of a fine sports car. *Range figure is an average...

Raleigh Motus Crossbar Ebike

Raleigh Motus Crossbar Ebike

Raleigh Motus Crossbar Ebike 21″  RRP £2000   The Motus adopts the same new frame and Bosch motor system as the Captus with an upgraded 400wh battery which will provide up to an extra 40km from a single charge, meaning that for some riders it could carry them to and from work for whole week before needing charging. The traditional derailleur version of the Motus is equipped with a 10 speed SRAM Via Centro gear system which is perfect if you live in a hilly area as it offers a wider range of gears that go up in small increments; coupled with the powerful Bosch motor this will allow you to climb the most daunting hills and still continue to enjoy the ride. The new generation 2 Bosch Active Line system sees smoother acceleration whilst shifting gear to create the perfect combination of mechanical and electrical pedelec technology. Its optimized 3-sensor concept performs 1,000 highly precise measurements per second, affording optimum power tuning and very low levels of noise & vibration. The 400wh battery boasts a range of between 45 and 180km* dependent on the level of assistance selected and can be charged from flat in approximately 3.5 hours meaning you can be back on your bike as quickly as possible. The Intuvia on-board computer allows you to switch between four different levels of support; Eco, Tour, Sport & Turbo, as well as displaying information like speed, battery level, distance travelled and approximate range available. Plus the handy “walk” button delivers a low power output from the motor for those occasions where you need to push your bicycle up some steps or a short slope. The Raleigh Motus comes fully equipped with a kickstand, mudguards and a rear pannier rack. Additional features include high quality lights which are integrated into and powered by the motor system and a clever rear wheel lock which can be quickly applied while you pop into the shops. Braking is covered by new Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, whilst CST e-bike specific tyres keep your wheels firmly planted to the road. The 60mm travel Suntour suspension fork, suspension seatpost, ergonomic grips, adjustable stem and oversize hybrid handlebar all provide the highest levels of comfort over any distance. Plus the Motus is fitted with a high end Selle Royale Scientia R2 saddle for the utmost luxury. If you’re looking for a high quality bike that has the power to let you explore even the most demanding terrain without breaking a sweat then the Motus is the bike for you. The new Motus is available in a choice of traditional derailleur or hub gear system in either a...
