Juggernaut 1000w

Looking to spend between £1000 to £2000
UK has a power limit, rear hub 250W bikes especially direct drive are not going to hill-climb.

To climb with 250W you probably need a mid-drive and a lot of low gears.

Direct Drive hubs seem to have fallen out of favor recently. Haven't seen any new bikes introduced with a DD.

My Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra was about US $3000 in Dec 2020. It's been good so far, only 1500 miles though. Climbs like a mountain goat and can hit 35+ mph on the flat.

Like all e-bikes prices have risen substantially, if you can get one shipped to you one of their bikes with the BBSHD (750W) is also a slightly cheaper option.

Andy, you don't seem to be too concerned about importing a bike with 4 times the legal wattage allowed in the UK?

You could probably get Rad Rhino 5 and put a Bolton Upgrade on it for less than 2K pounds

Just a guess, but thinking there may be a difference in importing what is clearly an illegal bike, and a box of parts. Kind of like importing a fully assembled bomb, or a box of parts that when assembled just right, could function as a bomb?
