So our most selling battery pack is now a whopping 21ah ...... meaning we could contemplate daytripping all the way to Whakatane on 1 single charge if we pedal a bit.
WOW - The goalposts have moved sooo much. When we first started our hiring our bikes on the Blackpool beach on Waiheke we were concerned some lovelies might not make it to Onetangi and back ( that's 25km !!!) .
And we are talking 2012 - 4 come 5 years ago.
Smartmotion here are taking the game in their hands - we've seen big 20 ah batteries before. But the likes of KALKHOFF or FOCUS seemingly think placing the battery in sight behind the saddle is pleasing to the eye... well out of my VOLVO that has never been pretty ( and nor has my boxy VOLVO ) .
The Downtube battery -as per PACER, MAGNUM, JUICED, ONYA sh-1 , is clever. It locks well -seems to rattle less than many of the rack battery options and is allowing a rigid frame - and nice light 'designs'.
On the race around Taupo for electric bikes Smartmotion where 1.5 hr ahead of the other ebikes at finish. Still with 1/3 the juice still in the battery .......
