I've always loved exploring green roads and trails on a bike since I was a young lad. Discovery of mopeds at 15 years old and motorcycles at 17 meant that push bikes were used much less. On an assortment of trail and enduro motorcycles I could cover a much larger number of lanes for less effort and it was much more fun as they had engines.
This is my first electric cycle, so this is more a review of electric cycling in general. The Moustache is every bit as good as the photographs on the e-bikeshop website and is an excellent bike in its own right.
Whilst waiting for my AMT Pro to come in I have been riding my wife’s new xDuro RC 29 and thoroughly loving it. Mind you, I was always careful when returning with every square centimeter of blue paint covered in mud and clay to thoroughly Rhino Goo and hose down the bike before it was seen.
A new electric bike review just in from one of our long term customers who purchased a Haibike RC29 2014 model a few months ago. Ian really puts his RC29 Haibike eBike through its paces so it was good to get some feedback from him as to how his new Bosch powered Haibike Electric Bike performs. We broke this down into a few simple questions..
Bosch announces their new Nyon eBike controller for 2015 / 2016. The new Head Unit will run on the current Performance eBike motor system but will be built with a larger screen and some all new features! Here we give you a brief overview of the new features and benefits in this latest eBike tech...
Just a note to say how delighted I am with the bike, I have been out this morning on a glorious day covering 35 miles up hill and down dale. Everything has exceeded my expectations and the machine is a delight to ride both under power and with power off.
A lot of people ask me - What exactly is the difference between the Bosch eBike 250w motor and the Bosch S 350w motor? So I have decided to make a little write up to explain this in more detail, it should also save me a fair amount of time on the phone each day too!

I previously blogged about the New 2014 Haibike Trekking SL electric bikes we have arriving shortly (Jan) 2014. But these eBikes were worthy of another blog post. The reason being they are not only the only Haibikes but also one of the only eBikes out there to feature the Sram Dual drive.
We at e-bikeshop have been supplying the Bosch tuning dongle for many UK customers over the past year or so. With the introduction of the new Gen2 style Bosch eBike motors, rumours have been spreading that the tuning dongles will not be compatible. Don't worry we are way ahead of the game and have been testing the speed derestriction to make sure it works and performs just as before.
The 300Wh & 400Wh PowerPacks used on Bosch powered eBikes are amongst the most advanced batteries currently on the electric bike market. They offer a superior range, reliability & longevity compared to many other batteries. However this all comes at a price; with a replacement pack currently costing around £500+. Some people are put off by the price of a replacement battery, thinking that it will have to be replaced every other year, but this is just not true.
A while back we here at e-bikeshop secured the sole rights to import the Bosch eBike Battery Pack cover into the UK for the Berlin manufacturers Fahrer. We have kept it quiet but are now too excited so had to blab about it. We have new stock arriving in Jan 2014 of the Bosch Classic+ Battery. The new 2104 Bosch Performance & Active Line covers will be arriving in mid Feb 2014.
E-bikeshop is one of the largest Independent eBike dealers in the UK. We are keen to be able to give our customers the best after sales and customer care, so when Bosch contacted us to see if we would like some further training of the new 2014 Bosch eBike system, we jumped at the chance!
We have been wanting to expand our ever growing electric bike range here at e-bikeshop. So we have had our eyes peeled over the last 6 months or so for another brand to bring under our roof here in the UK. Thing is our criteria is very high, with the key points being Quality, European Build, Quality Finish, Bosch Drive & Value for money. After looking high and low over lots of brands we stumbled upon the Moustache Electric Bikes. They tick all the boxes and are exactly what we are looking for!..
