Check out how really sloped our top bar is. My brother's girlfriend is barely 5' and she rode the bike just fine. We had to change the seat tube to a shorter one though. This is why we supply 2 sizes of seat tubesI currently have a Specialized Hybrid bike in a small frame (avatar picture) and even with its semi-sloping top tube it's awkward as heck to mount & dismount. No love here for top tubes.
ETA: 5'8" is not short. Short = 4'10" to 5'3". I'm about 5', 5'1" with shoes on. I have moola but only a bike that really fits well and is solid and dependable will get my moola!
After careful examination, we placed an order for dozen of these.
2 year warranty on a mid drive with 48V system is a sweet combo. Should be a fun bike for winter commuting
I am all for innovation and development of new ebike products but after reading the kickstarter page, I had questions. I posted the question below in the other post about this fat-ebike entitled: "Electric mid motored fat bike under $2k on Kickstarter now! Who's in?". I did not receive a response from the developer of this bike. Since you are investing in this bike for sale in your shop, you may want to address it.
Looks like a nice bike, fun bike. Not a commuter, not so much a tool but a toy. Would be a fun weekender and any bike riding would be good for fitness. The last year I've been running the dogs with a bike in a 4 acre field that I'm not using for anything else. And I've thought about purpose building an ebike on an old Raleigh. And that's what this "fat-ebike" reminds me of; a private, personal build from stock parts. Seems like a good price but is it anything special? Is it special enough to take a chance on? Add the wait time, will it be special 6 months from now?
I have no interest but why would you say this is not a commuter?
