Written Review

The EasyGo line of electric bikes is an entry level offering from BH Easy Motion, a hundred year old bicycle company based in Spain. Since their first line of bikes, the Neo series, launched in the US around 2013 consumers have recognized and appreciated the lower price point and beautiful purpose-built frames. Most older EMotion bikes have integrated downtube style battery packs but the EasyGo lines uses a proprietary seat post mount instead. This design doesn’t lock to the frame and the capacity offered is significantly lower at 208 watt hours vs. upwards of 316 wh but it’s very light at 2.9 pounds and is quick and easy to remove… which is important because you have to remove it to plug in and charge and I’d recommend taking it off the bike whenever you park to avoid tampering or theft.

The Easy Go Race is the least expensive ebike that BH makes but that doesn’t mean it looks cheap. The frame and fork are color matched in a satin charcoal gray and the deep dish wheelset, seat post collar and grip ends are bright red. Unlike most other electric bicycles I’ve reviewed from large established companies this one isn’t plastered with stickers and logos… it looks urban. It’s actually easy to mistake this for a non-electric bike because the 250 watt geared hub motor is small and painted black to blend in and match the spokes, cranks and pedals. The bike is almost too minimal for me because it doesn’t have bottle cage bosses despite there being plenty of room on the seat tube and downtube and there are no rear rack bosses either. A beam rack could probably be added but it will be tight given the seat post battery mount arm. There are no integrated lights and even adding fenders could be difficult given the dual-pivot caliper brakes. The bike is what it is… and it’s probably very tough, I’d feel less bad about parking this at racks where it might get banged up because there’s no derailleur to get bumped and the aluminum frame and steel fork are solid. It’s the kind of bike you could use spray paint on if it was scratched up.

This is an active electric bike, one you have to pedal in order to move and one with a more aggressive body position. The handle bar and stem are relatively flat and the seat is hard and narrow. There’s no suspension and the smooth 700 by 28c tires are thin and hard. It’s perfect for urban environments but it’s not the only offering in this category… for $700 more you could snag the Riide electric bike which offers a 350 watt motor and higher top speed of ~20 mph. If you already have a city bike you love the ADD-E could transform it into electric but isn’t as quiet or polished and costs ~$1,000 on its own. I was really surprised that the EasyGo Race is set for ~15.5 mph cruising vs. 20+ because it’s called the race! In Europe this is pretty standard and indeed, the motor runs and does contribute just a little bit above that 15.5 mph (25 km/h) mark but it really drops off, even in the highest level of assist. There’s no throttle and pedal assist works using a torque sensor so you have to push actively to make it go, especially on this bike with the single speed, relatively large 46-16T gearing. You should get decent range considering the smaller battery, but you have to work for it.

If you’re into the fixie look (and no, this isn’t a fixie – you can pedal backwards) and you want to add some boost to your rides, maybe extending your range a bit, then this could be a fun product. I would love to see an integrated tail light in the future and some threaded eyelets for adding accessories but the price point is tough to beat and the 2+ year warranty is best in class. The fact that this bike is carried at a lot of dealers means you can actually go and test it out. If you’re shorter, want improved comfort or prefer a more utilitarian electric bike consider the EasyGo Street which includes a rack, fenders, suspension fork and headlight (but still no tail light!) for $400 more. Easy Motion has a bunch of other ebikes to choose from, and most have larger motors and batteries, but the price goes up even more.


  • Extremely affordable for a brand name electric bike, especially given their vast dealer network and solid two year warranty (five if you register the bike)
  • Very light weight at just over 35 pounds (16 kilograms), with a conveniently removable battery pack that uses the magnetic EnergyBus standard (Rosenberger connector)
  • Fast and efficient due to the larger diameter wheelset and narrower smooth tires, the deep dish rims may be slightly aerodynamic compared with traditional ones but the forward-leaning body position also helps you cut through the air more efficiently
  • Excellent LCD display system, it includes lots of very detailed feedback including speed, total and trip range time and top speed, assist level and it’s backlit and removable!
  • The TMM4 torque sensor is smooth and efficient, it will increase the range of this bike compared with a cadence sensor pedal assist but does require more pedal input from the rider so you’ll work harder
  • Compact ~1.4 pound charger is easy to take along to top off along the way for increased range, you can also buy an additional battery for a few hundred dollars and it weighs just ~3 lbs
  • Clean aesthetic, you get two color choices and the frame matches the fork, all of the accents are coordinated (from the grips to the seat clamp) and the motor, spokes, cranks and chainring are all black, the electrical cables are internally routed through the frame
  • Minimal branding… just a stylized BH logo on the head tube with the rest of the tubing left alone


  • No bottle cage bosses or rack mounts and the seat post is taken up by the battery mount so you probably can’t add a beam rack… very limited storage
  • Very jarring to ride over cracks and bumps because of the stiff Aluminum frame, narrow tires and aggressive forward-leaning body position, no way to add a seat post suspension because the power cable runs through the seat tube, may be possible to swap out the fork but the stock steel fork does dampen a bit of vibration
  • No integrated lights (one on the battery pack would be nice), no fenders and no chainring guard to keep your pants clean
  • There’s no quick release on either wheel or the seat tube, no kickstand included (but there is a mounting plat for adding an aftermarket stand behind the bottom bracket
  • The motor power cable enters from the end of the axle and is more exposed than on some of the other Easy Motion e-bikes where it runs into the side and is tucked in near to the frame (which helps reduce snags, bending and wear if the bike tips over)
  • You pretty much have to take the battery pack off the bike with you when parked… it doesn’t lock to the frame and you can’t leave it on to charge, thankfully it’s compact and light weight but you’ll still be carrying ~3 lbs with you at all times and there’s more potential of dropping it vs. charging on the frame
  • Motor power really drops off above ~17 mph, I could hear it operating up to ~20 mph but the power was significantly reduced even when riding with the highest level of pedal assist

Would like to know if you think this bike is a fit for a short commute with a couple of slopes? I guess my question is, would the assist would be enough even with the high gear?


Court Rye
1 week ago

Good question... This ebike is just a touch above unpowered but that "touch" is roughly equivalent to a long distance cycling athlete (they tend to put out ~220 watts continuous). So this decision might come down to how much you intend to pedal, your weight and just the overall expectation. It's going to be way better than an unpowered bike but might seem weak compared with the other options available (especially in the US). I like how light weight it is and how stealthy the design is :)

Joe, All...

I received the E-Glide SS (Single Speed) yesterday and have a few rides in. It looks great and rides well (like a city bike, as described in some similar e-bike reviews which I link in below). I

For info about single speed bikes and their characteristics, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-speed_bicycle. Single Speed Bicycle wonks love their simplicity and the burn of a hill or sprint. I tried a few mild hills without the power on, and you have to work a bit.

(There are spots along the Potomac River Bike Trail between Mt Vernon, VA and Alexandria, VA where I would have to walk the bike up if the battery was empty. I know this because I rode my old Trek hybrid there a few weeks ago -- and my front gear shifter was broken so I could not shift down to the lowest gears).

The hub motor and the battery juice, of course, help flatten those hills. On my initial rides, the mid and high settings of the 3 level pedal assist give a noticeable boost and help maintain speed on hills (at about 15 and 18-20 mph respectively with some power input by rider). The low setting seems to target about 9-10 mph, and does not seem to provide much power on the mild to moderate hills -- the rider puts a good deal of their own power in to maintain speed.

The thumb throttle can add power and speed to pedelec modes, and can supplement the low setting. Max thumb throttle with minimal rider input tops out at 18-19 mph. On high power (or downhill with lower power), my fastest comfortable pedal rate on this single speed bike got up to 24-25 mph.

I've linked Court's review of a similar bike, the Easy Motion EasyGo Race below. It is a single speed, lower cost "City Bike" similar to the E-Glide SS. It may give you a feel for the general class of bikes.

- E-Glide SS has 350/700 watt hub motor, more power than the EasyGo race 250 watt model. I haven't yet, but will post speed performance. The SS tops out at 18-20 mph with throttle (or light pedaling) only. Court notes the EasyGo feels sluggish at/above 16 mph.
- E-Glide SS has 10 AH bottle battery mounted on down tube, vs. Easy Go race approx 3 AH pack mounted behind seat post.
- Aggressive ride posture and stiff light frames are similar, but not identical. E-Glide SS has all tubular round frame.
- Controls are somewhat different: E-Glide SS has both electric throttle and 3-level pedal assist which uses a cadence sensor on the front gear. You can use both at the same time - kicking in more power on low assist when needed for a hill, for example. The EasyGo has a torque sensor strain gauge on the rear gear, and Court notes some issues in the review.

How easy is it to pedal without any power? At 32 lbs it seems that it would
be great to pedal if your battery went dead.

First of all, I'd like to say thank you for all the reviews
@electricbikereview. I've many of your videos, many bikes which I cannot
afford, but great to know whats out in the market. I ended up buying this
bike from a local shop based on your review and what was available in this
price range. Great review - things I agree on - stiff ride and hard seat,
aggressive seating position. I've bought a seat cushion off Amazon to
accommodate for the hard seat. I also agree, very peppy torque off the line
but does tapper off after 16 to 17 mph - this is the #1 feature that I'm
loving. (I'm just reaffirming your specs, as each bike or user experience
may be a little different.) 2nd feature is the light weight and battery
charge time. 3rd feature is the 5 year warranty, after registering the bike
with BH. I've also noticed under the pedal there is a gap with exposed
wires, not hanging out but definitely exposed to the elements. I'm curious
how this will hold up. I'm not going to take any chances and plaster some
electric tape over the gap. I've had this bike for 2 days, commuted to work
(7 miles each way on Chicago streets) by the end of the day my battery is
at around 50% while I have pedal assist at 100% the whole way (I weight 165
at 5'8"). I'm loving it, head winds no longer slow me down. I have to agree
you have to work on this bike, especially since there is no throttle.
Again, thank you for the review! I hope to review this at a later date as I
intend to ride this well into the fall and (possibly) winter months.

looking to get one of these, how are these going uphill with only one gear?
is it manageable?

michael Solana

It's definitely manageable, as long as you have momentum going into the
hill. Once you go below 15 mph you will definitely feel the pedal assist
kick in and help you over the hump.

alright (I'm 5'9" tall) so I feel like it could fit a range of people but
5'5" to 6'5" might be best, how tall are you?

I'm looking for an ebike to commute to uni on which requires minimal effort
especially up hills. Would this bike be suitable or does the single speed
chain mean step hills would be just as hard work as a low cadence on a
regular bike?

+ElectricBikeReview.com Thank you for taking the time to reply it really
helps me out. Keep up the good work.

+Dani over Hi Dani, as long as you carry a bit of speed going into the
climb I think it would work fine (especially if you're moderately fit). The
challenge is starting from zero but even then, the motor basically doubles
your own power so it can climb well enough

OMG, I have just been to our local ebike shop where they have the 2015
model of BH EasyGo Race for about 1.300.- Euro and loved the look of it.
Now I come home, check the internet for this ebike and find your video -
how cool is that? :D Thanks very much for this.

+ElectricBikeReview.com .. Hi, I live in GER / Europe. In regard to this
model, I almost bought it, but I'm concerned about the fact that it only
has one single gear.

+M. Molli Awesome XD glad you found it! I've been excited to review this
electric bike for a while now. Are you in Europe or the US? I think it just
arrived here for 2016

I am thrilled because this is the first review yet of the 2016 model Easy
Motion bikes that were shown of at Interbike 2015. Isn't it? So now I am
looking forward to seeing Cort's opinion on how the 48 volt and 500 watt
Evo and Nitro models compare to the already decent versions from last year.
Same prices, more power on tap. What a difference a year makes. I have
enjoyed my mid drive bike, but these stealth BH bikes have me thinking.
Maybe not these EasyGo models though. Let the onslaught of reviews begin.
Thanks for all of your effort, sincerely.

+trevor l Thanks! I'm working hard to catch up, the new website design was
a killer load of work and it's still not complete. May be some time before
I visit Easy Motion, will be interesting to feel the 500 watt motor and 48
volt pack vs. 350 and 36 as you say

Now, this one I like. Looks like a fixie. If I have this, I'd throw away
the battery. :)

yeah you're right. sometimes the headwind is just brutal i don't want to
pedal. I see your point right there. bloody good endorsing skill. how much
did they pay you!? nah, just kidding. I like the review.

+Jogie Glen Mait Ha! Just get a normal fixie then, they sell bicycles just
like this for a lot less money... The motor and battery are nice if you
deal with a lot of hills or wind. When you only have one gear it's nice to
have a bit of a boost from the motor just to get up to speed

the battery settings will likely allow the bike to be assisted to a higher
speed. Meaning it won't cut out as early or so abruptly because you've
manually told it has more power to play with.

+Joe Pan Cool, in the writeup I called it satin black but it's not as dark
as the stem and other true black components, thanks for the ideas on color

I appreciate your review...I've been away for a while, so excuse this
question if it's been addressed recently. I'm a large guy: 6'3" 350 lbs. Is
there an electric bike at a comparable price point? I'm sure there's going
to be some type of up charge. BTW, the bikes in the living large kind of
mags. are electric. Thoughts? Thanks.

+Techno Vegano I think I had high expectations and hopes, it's pretty cool
for what it is but the components were much lower end
