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.
