Fantastic deal for a top Ebike.
I have one and love it. Cost me £5000 but went up to £5500 early this year. Now £3749.99 then there is £100 off plus more discount with quidco.
Excellent dealership as well Rutland Cycles.
One of the best looking Ebikes available. Defo puts a smile on your face when you ride one.
At this price there is nothing better.

I am 58 years old and ride some realy techy stuff. I go out with lads 20 years younger than me and also a british champion enduro rider. I either stop in or get some assistance to keep up with them on the up hills. I can do all the drop offs as its got plenty of travel. Dont knock them till you have ridden one. They help people who have given up riding to get out again. Allows older riders to keep riding. Yes im getting fitter as otherwise id be stopping in watching tv.

What's the point of it?

Why would you spend this much on a bike if you haven't got the legs to cycle?

Looks awesome, but so would £3649.00 in my bank account. What kinda of speed and range do these do?

It depends on how much assist you use. In eco mode at 10% assist I have done over 30 miles. Speed is maxed at 15mph but you can pedal faster under your own effort. Pedal assist finishes at 15mph. You can make them faster but that is against UK law but I have heard 30mph is acheivable either software update or dongle.

Nice bike...but in this day and age perhaps too nice! I'd expect you'd soon gain the attention of scumbag moped gangs if you live anywhere other than Timbuktu.

Agree with you. Its a fantastic bike for the money. I would love one but I could do with selling my yamaha wr250f first as its just not used since I bought it new. I live 2 mins from the woods and moors and these bikes just let you enjoy the outdoors more and more.
Does come with Alfred?

Speed - as fast as your little legs can go

Range - till you get tired
Do these move even if you dont pedal at all?

Aren't e-bikes designed to be neither of those things?
Here's an idea, get a wheelchair and add a two small 60cc engines would cost about £150 or less to make and you've got yourself a perfectly mobile racing machine!!!!
Or two electric motors whatever rocks yer boat or tickles yer pickle!
If you decide the electric way you can call it an e-wheelchair!!
That's a expensive bike
Clearly people don't know what e MTBs are designed for.

Decent price if you want one. Not that I would being a roadie

Not really, for an ebike it's good value, you can pay upto £10k for a mtb, even most brands top carbon models are hitting the £6-7k mark, ebikes seems to be around the £4-7k mark.
bikes are made in Taiwan and also with the key component companies Shimano/sram/fox they all trade in us dollars

An electric mountain bike, doesn't that defeat the reason of a mountain bike? The weight must, be a killer going over the ruff stuff, which mountain bikes are designed for.

They don't list the bike weight, in the description.

I was chatting to a shop owner about ebikes mountain bikes in particular and they haven't taken off in the uk as expected, for me they are too heavy and it's new tech, better off waiting.
plus if you are not fit by 40 you.ll have a difficult second half.

He was saying the commuter bikes are getting the electric engines and are likely to be the sellers, which compared to public transport are competitive

I believe they are around 18-19kg, but some even heavier
compared to regular mountain bikes
hardail 8.5-13kg average 12kg
Short travel full sus 12-14kg , enduro full sus 12kg-15kg .

i tend to ride where I need to throw my bike over a gate etc so an ebike but limit my options, plus I'd prefer to get fitter

Nope, no throttle as such. It only adds power if you pedal, start coasting and you'll roll to a halt.

Mpg? Gallon of what? It's electric...(annoyed)
So many clueless folk in here. I'd love to see any one of them do a downhill day.

"What, I've got to peddle 2KM back up the run?"

Rutland are a good company.

No.
These types of men used to spend thousands on golf club sets to show off to other little men....now they buy expensive bikes and ride around ( in fine weather only) looking ridiculous in lycra.
Is that progress? Personally I would rather keep these little men all trapped in golf courses rather than annoying the rest of us on the roads.

Electric power doesn't work unless you pedal but pedals not included?
Lol ! What a price. A cycle is after all a cycle not a 🛫.

High end bikes don't tend to come with pedals usually the people who buy them have their own very specific preferences and any that it comes with will just be thrown away.

Rutland are a good company.


Maybe they once were, but they're not now in my experience. I had some real issues with them shipping an incomplete and unchecked bike. They made no effort to replace faulty parts with any kind of urgency despite the fact that this ultimately led to the cancellation of our cycling break. I would not trust them with a cycle purchase again, no matter how cheap it looks up front. See if a local supplier can match this price rather than trusting this outfit.
The most popular transport round my way is Mobility Scooters.
This is why ebikes will never take off, the stupid 250w motor legal limit.

Unless motors like my bbs02 or bbsHD are legal on the roads then fatties will still take their cars, unless there's an off road way to work.
