How on earth could I possibly not have known about this bike earlier? Ordering TODAY!
Court does provide great commentary in his EBR Summary! Bunch Bikes The Original Review | ElectricBikeReview.comI can see why Court would rush to review this baby.
152 pounds !?!?Court does provide great commentary in his EBR Summary! Bunch Bikes The Original Review | ElectricBikeReview.com
- A three-wheeled electric assist + throttle on demand box bike designed to transport up to four children! It includes two removable bench seats that double as storage cubbies, full-length steel fenders, a steel chain guard, reflective tires, and integrated front and rear lights for safety.
- Powerful braking performance from three 160mm hydraulic disc brakes combined with smaller diameter wheels. The two front brakes operate using the same lever (on the left) for smooth and even delivery... both brake levers offer adjustable reach and have parking brake switches to secure the bike. Puncture resistant tires minimize maintenance, as long as you keep them inflated above the minimum PSI to avoid pinch flats.
- Torque-sensing pedal assist responds much faster than cadence, but requires consistent ongoing pedal force. Throttle on demand makes starting and relaxing your legs possible, but the throttle power and speed are limited by 1-5 assist levels. Great display panel with big readouts and simple interactions, USB charging port built into the base of the button pad near the left grip for charging a phone, GPS, or bluetooth speaker.
- Costs $1k more than the non-electric version of the bike (but totally worth it imo). Only available in one frame size and color, but the glossy black is timeless, hides dirt, and Bunch Bikes adds a rust resistant coating inside the frame. Unique steering setup requires some reaching and leaning at times, limited turning radius, no bottle cage bosses or attachments on the box, very heavy build at 152lbs with limited 350lb cargo capacity (220lbs in the box).
Moma got some LEGS
I can see it being a hoot on city streets but I wouldn't want to try maneuvering it on a narrow MUP or bike trail.
Welcome to EBR and please take the forum comments with a big grain of salt!We have a lot of customers who aren't experienced cyclists. You don't need crazy leg muscles to ride the bike.
Court quoted the mom at the end of the video saying she usually only kept it in PAS 2 or 3.
Up an extended hill, in PAS 5, you'll be working a bit, but it's really not that bad on all but the most extreme hills, even with kids or dogs in the bike.
At 132 pounds, the non-electric version is a lot to handle though, and it's only recommended for flat areas where you aren't going to be riding longer than 3-4 miles on average.
