3E Urban and 3E Sport

Urban

I like the look of this bike which can be had at the £999 mark, and the astonishing three years battery warranty. It’s very light compared with many other bikes. I have seen a few good reviews of 3E and its bikes. I  contacted them to find out the maximum load and rider height, and this was dealt with swiftly.  Bill phoned and we had a long chat which left me better informed not only to the 3E bikes but to eBikes generally.  He said that the specified maximum load is 100Kg but that a 10% tolerance is very normal so 110Kg is ok.  As to height, he pointed out that the problem is usually for smaller people because the battery prevents the saddle from being lowered beyond a certain point. Overall, he thought the Sport model best for my requirements (see below). There is a  a very positive review of  the more expensive Sport on pedelecs from a six footer. Very good specified range. And I have a local dealer.
