Are ‘Friends’ Electric?

May 19, 2015

We’ve got a shiny new e-bike in the test-fleet this week and I’m running it through it’s paces on my daily commute. The bike in question is a New Zealand designed SmartMotion eUrban from local e-bike specialist Bute Bikes.

Chris from Bute let me borrow a Pedego e-bike a couple of years ago and my ride impression of that day-glow orange cruiser is one of the most searched-out posts on this site.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect as I’ve recently injured my shoulder. Despite several hours of painkiller-assisted mountainbiking in the weekend it doesn’t feel any better (go figure) and I rolled out of bed this morning like an 90 year old man.

I was running late, the roads were soaking wet, yet I arrived at work in record time with dry feet and a dry back after a mostly uphill commute. Maybe there’s something to e-bikes after all?
