Hanebrink Electric Bikes
When you picture an electric bike in your mind, the Hanebrink
is not the type of model that comes to mind first. Unlike
a thin, "regular" bike with a motor attached, most
Hanebrink bikes are wide, or "fat", as some reviewers
have said. They offer innovative features that other electric
bikes don't, and their design is quite unique.
Hanebrink electric bike
While most electric bikes available today are made in China,
Hanebrink boast a design that is almost totally made in the
United States. Hanebrink e-bikes have parts built by the founder
himself, giving you light weight and strength at the same
time. The tires and wheels do look heavy, but the wheels actually
only weigh a pound, and the tires are three pounds or more,
depending on what model you order.
The motor is mounted in the middle of the bike, and it has
a double freewheel so that both the rider and motor use its
gears. You can pedal assist your Hanebrink electric bike with
seven speeds, or order the 14-speed transmission. The system
itself is smooth and silent. They ride like regular bikes
when you're not in power mode.
Many riders want to know why Hanebrink e-bikes are as expensive
as they are. This is due to the custom-made components and
frame that have been made in America, in small quantities.
The battery pack is Lithium-Cobalt-based and provided by an
American manufacturer. It comes with a two year warranty.
Hanebrink use Crystalute hub motors. You can get a more powerful
engine, but that also means you'll need a larger battery.
You can ride this bike in snow or on a sandy beach, as well
as on trails. The hub motor makes Hanebrink electric bicycles
more efficient, more reliable and able to run cooler.
On Road or Off ...
You can shift down with the transmission if you're climbing
a hill or need more torque. The bike is efficient, even with
its thick tires, and it performs especially well off road
and climbing hills. It works better than most other electric
bikes on the road, too.
If you're not familiar with Hanebrink electric bikes, you
may wonder why they are so wide, as compared to other electric
bikes. The reason is that the width is needed to accommodate
the large tires that work so well when riding these fat bikes.
The design is just what the builder wanted, and it works very
well for sand riding.
Because of the large tire width, it's easier to ride a Hanebrink
over grass that is kept manicured, without damaging it like
bikes with thinner tires might. You can even use it as a one-person
golf cart, when you out-rig it with a small cart. The cart
balances the bike so that you can get on and off to hit your
next shot without using the kickstand.
The Hills Are Alive ...
The Hanebrink electric bike handles well even on rocky and
sandy hills, which are areas where conventional electric bikes
could not traverse. The solid feeling and traction and use
of low gears for climbing allow you to take the Hanebrink
e-bike wherever you might want to go, without concerns about
getting stuck. It's a rugged and well-built bike that is comfortable
to ride wherever your journeys take you.
