About the EBCO Urban 2R electric bike
Stop what you're doing and buy this bike. No, seriously. We can't quite believe how much value this bike gets you for £1599!
You might notice we don't stock a lot of bikes under £2000, and hardly any of our bikes feature hub (in-wheel) motors. However the EBCO Urban 2R ticks both of those boxes....and we still love it!
The Bafang motor is a favourite in the e-bike industry as it is punchy, relatively lightweight, and importantly it is possible to get technical back up (not always the case with rear hub motors).
All the other components are much better than you'd expect on a bike this price: the hydraulic disc brakes, the Ergonomic saddle, Continental tyres, and the front light, which has fancy side illumination too.
This is the same weight as staff favourite Specialized Vado SL 4.0 and so will be as easy to ride above the motor cut-off speed.
The lights, kickstand, mudguards, comfort saddle, and comfort grips come as standard so you can start riding straight away.
Would we add anything?
The bike has no suspension, but that does keep the bike nice and light. If you found that the ride was too harsh over potholes, simply adding wider grips to protect your wrists, and perhaps a suspension seatpost would help.
Summary: A very smart choice for someone riding around an urban area. Light enough to pedal faster than the motor cut out, and also a budget-friendly price tag. Well done EBCO!
