Where can I try the bike?
You don't just buy a bicycle. And ordering online may make you more nervous. That is why we think you should be able to try the bicycle. We deliver the bicycle to your home or work ready for use. You can then view, try and experience the bike at your leisure. Happy with your bike? Top! It is not the bike you expected it to be? No problem, we will simply return the bicycle. You can also try the bike at one of our service and sales points.
Is there a luggage carrier on the bike?
Yes, the frame has mounting points to mount a standard luggage rack. Also look for accessories for a suitable model. However, a luggage carrier cannot be mounted on the WATT NEW YORK and BROOKLYN
Does a child seat fit on the bike?
Child seat in the back
Most child seats are easy to attach to the luggage rack. You can order the luggage rack as an accessory. The Luggage carriers have been specially developed by Weco for the Dutch company Steco and have a carrying capacity of up to 25 kilos.
If you do not want a luggage carrier, you can choose a seat tube adapter from Yepp or Bobike.
Child seat in the front
The MONTREAL uses an Ahead system as a stem. Various mounting sets are available for this. We advise you to also order a stem riser so that your handlebars are higher. That cycles just a bit more comfortable with a child seat. Almost all standard adapters fit on the BOSTON.
Which frame size do I need?
We have 2 frame sizes for the men's bikes: 54 cm for a body length between 1.66 and 1.84 meters and 59 cm for a body length between 1.78 and 1.96 meters. For the ladies bike we only have size 54 for a body length between 1.66 and 1.84 meters. If desired, the frame can be shortened to 2.5 cm. In that case, send your request to [email protected] Fietsen.nl
Is the speed limited to 25 KM/H
The motor provides support up to 25 kilometers per hour. At the display settings, I see a maximum of 40 km/h. What does that mean? There is a difference between. Yes, one is the maximum speed the engine can achieve (which is limited to 25 km/h in Europe). The other is at what speed the motor supports. If that is at 40 km/h, that means that the engine will continue to provide support until you go faster than 40 km/h, which practically does not occur in practice. Suppose you set the setting to "assist up to 25 km/h", the engine would fail if you go faster than 25. That is not desirable. So you can set at what speed you want the motor to stop supporting.
Does the bicycle also have gears?
No, the bicycle has no gears. We used a heavier resistance of 2.75 in our bikes. This is the ratio between the front and rear sprockets. Also called gear ratio. This means that you can cycle nicely at a higher speed and do not have to pedal hard. The disadvantage is that cycling/acceleration is heavier. However, the electric motor gives you almost instant support, which eliminates this drawback. Furthermore, the engine has 5 positions from +/- 18 km to 25 km pedal assistance. You don't need any gears for that.
Is there a rotation or force sensor?
The electric motor can be found in the rear axle and has a power of 250 WATT. The drive takes place via a rotation sensor (speed sensor) at your bottom bracket. The motor has 5 positions from approximately 5 km to 25 km per hour support. With a force sensor, the motor is controlled by the force on the pedals. With a rotation sensor, the motor is controlled as soon as the pedals start rotating. This gives you more constant support. This technique is also less maintenance-sensitive. For example, the bike does not need to be recalibrated if you want to replace a flat rear tire. Very handy for a city bike.
How much do the bikes weight?
The MONTREAL weighs 17,5 KG
The NEW YORK weighs 15,5 KG
The BOSTON weighs 18 KG
The BROOKLYN weighs 17,5 KG
Can the handlebars and saddle be raised or lowered?
Yes, you can easily set this yourself with the BOSTON models. The saddle can be extended to about 15 cm. With the MONTREAL, NEW YORK, and the BROOKLYN you can raise the handlebars with an a-head extender. Order here
How does the WATT cycle without motor support?
You can also cycle well on a WATT bike if you switch off the engine. Unlike other electric bikes, the WATT weighs only 17.5 kilograms. Furthermore, the center of gravity of the bike is in the middle because the battery is in the down tube. Due to the low weight and the ideal weight distribution, the WATT cycles just like a normal bicycle when you have the engine off.
Where is the serial number?
The serial number can be found at the bottom of the bottom bracket.
There are many ways to maintain your chain. But an easy way is to brush away the dirt, like mud and sand, with warm soapy water and an old toothbrush. Then de-grease with, for example, Cyclon Bionet, available at the bicycle shop, biodegradable. Diluted, you can also clean your entire bike of dirt. Then rub dry with a cloth. Then lubricate with, for example, Cyclon dry lube. Apply drop by drop, wipe off excess lubricant with a cloth. Too much lubricant attracts dirt. Repeat this regularly. This way your chain will also last longer.
