AVANTI are a great value for money bicycle that is a New Zealand company. Their quality for price is great and they have a great range of hybrid/comfort bikes in the Discovery range. The Metro range are ladies retro styles bicycles and their Giro range is for flat bar road commuter bikes. The Inc2 is a special bike in that is a road commuter with a belt driven internal hub; the Montari range are mountain bikes.
ORBEA are a top end Spanish brand of bike. People like them for their geometry and style. The Urban range are great commuters that are tough and can be thrown around. The Carpe range is a road commuter, very stylish with nice colour schemes, hydraulic brakes and good specs. The comfort and sport and more leisurely based bicycles. All of these bicycles are great to make electric using our conversion kits.
TERN make top of the line folding bikes. Dahon used to be one of the leaders in folding bikes but according to a rumour, the son and wife of the Dahon leader split and did their own thing. They took the Dahons and made them better. If you’re really looking for a top of the line folding bike then it’s well worth a look at the Tern range. They stock beautiful folding bicycles with 20″, 24″ and 26″ wheels and we enjoy electrifying them with our specific kits.
LEKKER is an Australian/Dutch company. They are based on the Dutch style bike and we use a few to make electric. The men’s Sportief and the women’s Joordan are great models, they’re very comfortable to ride, robust, well priced and suit our conversion kits.
XDS make great bikes and are well known over East. We have chosen just two of their models as they suit being electrified. These are the men’s Street bike and their folding bike which is called the City Pro. The street bike is a cool fixie style bicycle but it runs a 5 speed Sturmey Archer internal hub gear.
