Un mountain bike perfect – electric si ieftin.

Un mountain bike perfect – electric si ieftin.


Behind me is a bike like any other, meaning, 2 wheels, 2 pedals, a handle bar, and so on. What is has in addition to a normal bike is the electric motor(a.k.a. engine), situated somewhere in the middle,
which I will show you in a bit, and of course the battery. With a Suntour XCT fork, with Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, front disc 180mm,
rear disc 160mm. The included battery is a 36V battery
with 13Ah, with Panasonic cells of course,
type 18650. And the engine down there, is the house’s specialty, it can be mounted on a city bike or a mountain bike, in this case it’s on a mountain bike. “I will never ride on an electric bike
because I don’t see it’s point, and I don’t understand why
you would use an electric bike.” For those that will say this, I have a little demonstration that amuses me every time. I took the bike for testing on some streets. As you can see, it runs without any electric system. It’s like a normal bike,
a little heavier. I would compare it with UMF Duncan 2. I think it weighs around 19 kilograms, 19-20 kilograms.
It’s not much at all for a bike of it’s type. We start the electric system, we properly fit on the street,
until then, I’ll explain you, here is the assist level,
it’s set to the first level for now, we now set it to the fifth level, here is the throttle/acceleration, when we operate it, the bike starts going,
without us even pedaling, as it will happen now for example. We operate the throttle/acceleration,
I’m not using my feet, they’re not moving,
and the bike accelerates to 25-27km/h. The wind blows really strong
and it’s extremely annoying, for a week in Bucharest, really strong wind. Let’s sneak through these… two yellow chicken coops, and get on a lane that will allow us
to test the acceleration. We got in a safe spot
to avoid any kind of accidents, with the drivers coming from behind,
and we start to pedal as fast as possible. Shifting to 3rd gear. 5th gear. 6th gear. And we start to pedal at 43km/h on flat, without any effort. We change to the 8th pinion
and go downhill extremely fast. The brakes work exceptionally. Ohoh! It’s brilliant! Brilliant! After the bike showed it’s city-bike potential on flat ground, it’s now time to take the bike
in it’s natural environment, on paths, we imagine we’re at the mountain
in Tineretului Park, in Bucharest. We start to pedal slowly, and then we shift the gear, the bike is assisting us,
as you can see I’m not breathing heavily, with a 19-20 kilograms bike under me. We’re starting to climb, here as well, we rapidly shift the gear, on a lower level,
after which we immediately climb. How awesome!
The easiest climb, in bucharestBIKEtraffic’s history. We operate the throttle/acceleration. I would like you to feel what I’m feeling right now. It’s like the bike is pulled forwards by a strange force. We pass over the roots, like this. I’m not pedaling anymore here, and the bike is climbing on itself. Thing that is really awesome. 44 km/h We brake, and in a few seconds we’re back at 0 km/h. Here we climb. We pass through the tree. We operate the throttle/acceleration
so that we won’t lose inertia. And we’ve done it! This is the longest hill in Tineretului Park. To finish with a really awesome thing, I’ll finish with this hill being climbed by me, without any effort.
