I have this bike and can recommend if your thinking of going electric.

If your 21 with quads like Arnie it may not be for you - but if you want to make a huge difference on how far and how much you want to use your bike - in particular off road this is a great choice. It makes uphill a breeze.

The SDURO HardSeven eBikes are the optimal choice for those looking for an eMTB for easy terrain or tours. The attractive price-performance ratio make this series one of the most successful worldwide.

Theres a price guarantee too:

I picked up an eBike (Cube Hybrid Pro) following a devastating injury to my knee. Without the assistance it gives me, I would struggle to be able to fit fitness into my daily routine but as it goes I am now able to commute 25 miles a day. eBikes are not just for lazy people, they are a fantastic gateway to fitness and if anything, keep you off the sofa and out of the car.

Where is the motor on one of these? In the pedal crank or the wheel hub? Does anyone know if there is an advantage of one method over the other?

I really want an electric bike but I wish they weren't quite so bloody expensive!

It's a crank model, hence the rrp.
Crank models are generally regarded as better. Lots of info on Google.
If you want something more affordable, have a look at the Carrera Crossfire in Halfords. Regularly discounted to around 1k plus an extra -10% if you join British Cycling. I have one and love it.

Motor in pedal crank - I have Yamaha one - see the link regards crank/wheel hub and yes I agree they are expensive but IMO well worth the investment.

electricbikeblog.com/hub…or/

I've had a Kona Lavadome hardtail for 20 years and a couple of full sus Konas - the Haibike gets more use because I can get out more, go further, have more fun and do much more in less time.

Finally - Please don't think the electric motor means you don't have to peddle - you do. You are also in control of amount of effort you put in by the 4 settings on the handlebar panel - completely off, Eco, Normal and High.

The High setting is a lifesaver for getting away at traffic lights especially on a hill and avoiding any wobbles/potential accidents....
It only seems to be available as a 55cm (21/22") frame in silver/green

Out of interest, could any one give an approximation as to how much of the cost is because the Bike's end user spends to much time with junk food watching reality TV

Ebikes are not really my thing yet thankfully but I do see the point for less fit or injured people to still be able to get out and enjoy trails with everybody else. I was talking to a guy on the fat full suss version of this over Cannock chase who said he bought the haibike because the Yamaha motor as it is apparently the best out there in terms of coping with water and weather sealing. The bike did look really good to be honest and it was very quiet in use.
Nice bike - but consider the BMW Cruise Ebikes - you can pick these up for around this sort of money if you don't mind last years colours - I've had one for two years and it is really well made with Bosch electrics.
Avoid carrera crossfire, well known cut out issues, haibike appear to be a good brand
How does this compare to the oxygen s-cross? That seems to get ok reviews but looks hub driven rather than crank driven. I need to start cycling again but not sure my knees are up to the hills in sunny Devon
Also, is it really worth paying a £1000 premium for a battery pack and motor compared to the non ebike equivalent? I've not tried an ebike so was unsure of the true benefit of having a motor to go uphill compared to the additional weight when cycling on the flat?

Really depends on you. For me absolutly worth it.

I've been riding off road for 25 plus years. I now find it a lot harder to cover the same distances as Im getting older and Ive got wear on knees etc.

For me it works and its worth the extra. I still occasionally use my old Kona Lavadome hardtail but the Haibike lets me increase my range and TBH is a more enjoyable ride.

For me it gets me out more and gets me fitter than the old hardtail becuase of increased usage.
How does this compare to the gtech bike?
I am looking for an ebike and don't know where to start.
I have the hardnine with the Bosch system. Would highly recommend Haibike. Heat.

Just think, if you bought one you could get around so much faster, and would then have spare time to work on your grammar and spelling (isn't sarcasm fun?).

I bought an equivalent Haibike model for around the same price in a sale just over 18 months ago. Haven't regretted it for a moment. The build quality is excellent and, so far, it's been 100% reliable. I have a problem at the base of my spine which makes pushing hard a real pain, and this is where the electric assistance shines. Be aware, though, that the bike is pretty heavy and you'll notice the extra weight when riding with the motor off and when travelling downhill.

Can you remove the speed limiter on this one?

I was skeptical about electric bikes until I hired one in Marrakech, it brought the fun back to cycling without having to do the boring bit, and whizzing up hill at 45 mph past the lycra warriors was great fun.

It uses the Yamaha PW system, so you should be OK. Look on ebiketuning website for options.
I've got the Haibike Sduro cross which is pretty much the commuter-ish version of the Hard Seven (bigger, thinner wheels) which I do about 40 miles a day getting to work and back.

It's not a fantastic bike, but it's very good for the money. Some of the components are a bit low-rent - the rear sprockets a particular bug bear of mine as I wear out the top gear every 4-5 months (the chain starts slipping when you pedal hard). It's still under warranty, but will put something decent on when it runs out.

One other thing to consider if buying a leccy bike online is the warranty. Haibike aren't keen on you just popping round to your local Haibike dealer if there's a warranty issue - they insist you deal with whoever supplied you the bike in the first place. So you may have to post the bike back to them if there's any issues.

That said - I'd still recommend one. Mine 'somehow' seems to go well over the 15.5 mph assistance restriction so is great for ripping past rude road-riders that deem riders with flat bars too lowly to acknowledge.
