The DOUZE sits at the top of the list of elite cargo bikes. It rides nearly just like a regular bike in terms of performance even though it has an extremely long wheel base to accommodate children. The one problem though is weight when it’s loaded up with two kids and shopping. The obvious solution is to bring it to us to deck out with a conversion kit. Hub drives are no good as it has a rear Nuvinci gear system that you certainly don’t want to lose and the front wheel has a through axle that isn’t compatible with a hub motor. Next we tried our own mini-motor but that wouldn’t fit either due to the frame geometry. The only solution we could find was a BAFANG BBS02 motor, and even then we had to pull the motor apart and mount the halves around the frame. This motor mounts centrally in the crank. The hassle was worth the reward as the final product is perhaps the most perfect mode of transport for those with children wanting to ride instead of drive – and can afford it!
The Scene is a cracking new bike that has come out this year from NORCO. It’s a strange combination of cruiser, upright, step-through, mountain bike and laid-back riding. This is one extremely comfortable bike that is designed with performance and comfort in mind. It is a completely magic model for use with our electric bike conversion kits. This one here has been decked out with the PANASONIC 36V 14Ah tiger shark battery on the down tube and a rear hub motor; with internal routing of all cables it looks as if it’s come straight out of NORCO’s factory like this.
The bike comes out in two models and three colours. The Scene 1 is the more upmarket version that retails for $850 and has a black frame, hydraulic disc brakes and a 9 speed Alivio gear set. The Scene 3 is available in grey/white and raspberry, retails for $650 and has a 7 speed gear set and cable disc brakes instead. Both are ideal bikes for electric conversion. Please come in to test ride this bike if you think it may be up your alley. The performance is brilliant and with the rear hub motor, throttle and centrally mounted battery it’s hard to beat for the price.
Up until Christmas we are running a special on the Electric AVANTI Discovery 2 model. Usually $1990, and now it’s $1840.
This is one of the most comfortable and useful all round ebikes on the market. The AVANTI Discovery 2 comes with disc brakes, an upright sitting position and offers a combination of comfort, performance and commuting speed. With our SOLAR BIKE electric system the bike is suitable for a great range of commuters. The bike is available in either a men’s frame or women’s step-through style in small, medium, large and extra large frame sizes.
