Not my style of bike but looks very nice/clean and neat, though one day if ever my needs changed I would have to accept riding one.
Sadly I have a dislike for the look of the bulky lumps of the integrated mid drive look.
An option of Alfine 8 hub gears would add to appeal for non nonsense gear changing esp for female riders.

I am thinking of fitting a simple twist grip shifter for those who dislike the rapid fire shifter.

It certainly looks good and I think the integrated batteries look so much better than external ones. I think it will appeal especially to the more casual users, which I guess is where the big future market is.

Well done.

I like it and it's one I would definitely consider if it can accommodate a 34" inside leg.

Nice looking bike!

I think Gripshift is ideal for ebikes - a low gear for starting off and then straight into top for cruising without having to do the click click click thing.

Yep we cut a few inches off Kangooroo's legs for a perfect fit :p.
nothing drastic, if it takes off as I hope it will, make a larger frame with 700 x 45c tyres.
I always make an 'L' version shortly after the 26" base model.

Please don't make the frame too large - I have long legs but a short body so it's always an issue trying to find a bike to fit without me being high in the air and handlebars beneath my knees or that I have to stretch to reach!

An 18" frame with rising handlebars seems to work best and I like the sound of those 700x45c tyres. My current ebike (Oxygen Emate) has 26" which are good but my manual bike has 700x45 and these are brilliant.

Shorter legs would make life easier, except for climbing over fences and stiles.

Hi, nice bike, clean lines and look.

How much weight can the rack take?

Thanks

I thought it was standard 25kg but I will have to recheck.

The European Union
1. Larger wheels (27.5) and 62 mm Super Moto X tyres
2. mono-shock front fork
3. the PAS Bafang motor not the torque sensor one
4. 9 speed not 8 speed, there is a better selection of cassettes for we who are gradient disadvantaged
5. NCX seatpost (at least as an option)

Great to see a UK manufacturer/importer/supplier having the balls to retail a bike in the UK with a Bafang MaxDrive… at last! Will that be the 250 or 350 labelled as 250?

Aha... so, from your previous comments, that'll be the latter then! I think it's a nice looking bike, but I'm looking for something more like a Cube Tour but with a MaxDrive, or this - the nearest I can find from within Europe with a MaxDrive (Matto Tour MX1). Anything else coming up your pipeline with a MaxDrive you can share?

It looks gorgeous and the upright style appeals to me along with centre drive and disk brakes.

May I ask
1) How, roughly, does the battery capacity compare to a Bosch 500 battery?
2) Does the battery have to remain in the bike frame for charging?
