This is one of the lightest electric bicycles available in Australia. It is a single speed/fixed wheel bicycle designed by Solar Bike. It is a slick and stylish electric bicycle that has been designed completely to be exceedingly simple, practical and robust. It uses the Panasonic tube battery and is well suited to the mini-motor or any larger power motors. It comes with a medium/large sized frame only, suitable for riders between ~ 170cm – 190cm.
The fixed gear bicycle typically has a single fixed gear, no brakes and a racing frame and component design optimised for speed and efficiency. The electric fixie takes these concepts and has urbanised some features; such as brakes and free wheel ability (flip-flop rear wheel) to create a high performance bicycle that is designed to be the perfect urban commuting vehicle. The deficits of a single gear are completely taken care of by the slick bicycle design and electric motor. Using a custom designed reinforced frame, an advanced light weight 9Ah Panasonic lithium ion battery shaped into a water bottle and a front hub motor, this is an exceptional bicycle. The bicycle is street legal with the 200W motor and has a range of approximately 40km and speed of 28km/hr with light pedalling. Upgrading to any of the larger 350 – 500W motors provides a higher top speed (30-35km/hr). It’s an awesome limited edition bicycle (only 50 ever made) that can be ridden either electric or non-electric.
