VeloSolex

 

Certainly a nice looking bike with lots of marketing behind it concentrating on its style and Italian design. The marketing also suggests it’s aimed at the young professional about town, which clearly i am not, being more of a cardigan and slippers bloke.

 

Nevertheless, its specifications fit the bill, and it has a high maximum load capacity. The 24 Volt battery is a negative, but then again it is clearly designed as a commuter. Sells for £999 and a big plus is that it.s available ata local dealer, Wirral E-Bikes who also stock Batribike so I could test ride both.
