A bit expensive but it looks better than those hub things where you have to change the wheel.

We looked at similar direct-drive units before, as well.

If I recall correctly, one of the reasons we discarded the design and went instead for the integrated motor/gearbox concept built around the bottom bracket was because of the amount of off-centre torque placed on the back wheel hub (or something like that, anyway).

eBikes are astonishingly popular at the moment, and it seems demand for our drive units and associated components (like the handlebar mounted GPS/mapping/routing unit and its associated cloud web service) is through the roof.

They are just really fun to ride.

I truly believe they are the future, if they get to a price point where everybody can afford them then car use will reduce drastically for those that can commute via bike. It doesn't matter how fit or unfit you are on an ebike. The only incentive not too is the weather.

Absolutely. Like many things, the more you manufacture, the unit cost comes down.

We are hoping for double-digit growth again in eBikes, the market is red hot at the moment, and as „trickle down“ becomes more established, you will see the „tech“ appearing in lower cost models.

(I am not sure about U.K. pricing, but here, you have to be willing to pay above €1.500 for anything remotely usable, and decent models start around €2.000)

See loads of wrinkleys on them around here even though it's flat. Suppose it gives you the option of venturing into the Lincolnshire wolds. It,s not the hills that get you here it's the bloody wind.

It's the third time to the same place and at the same time of year. The heat is bearable but that SW (where I start) to south coast can get a bit blowy.

Apart from the cycling, I only go for the tomatoes.
Yes , I've only been to Crete once and I did notice it blows a bit. Comes as a bit of a shock to some who are used to sailing around the Ionian and then venture out that way. I enjoyed the Samaria gorge.
