We are so excited about the new Felt e-bikes! What is so exciting about these e-bikes? There are so many features to love that we had to make a list.
1. The motor system is at the bottom of the frame, not on the back wheel. So it it is better for your center of gravity, because it’s lower, and in the center of the bike.
2. One of the 2015 Felt models is named after the cult classic film The Big Lebowski. Because, it’s, well, large, and awesome, and has a cup holder for your White Russian, obviously. The Lebowsk-e is for mountain biking, complete with big puffy tires. This bike was voted Best in Show by Outsider Magazine at the 2014 Interbike Convention in Las Vegas earlier this month.
3. The motor is made by Bosch. Yes, the dishwasher people. So can you imagine it’s quietly amazing? Of course you can.
4. Felt has been selling e-bikes in Europe for the past three years, and now they are entering the U.S. market with a several models for different lifestyle needs. There’s the Verza-e, the QX-e, the Nine-e, and the new Sport-e. The Verza-e is a commuter model which comes in four sizes. The QX-e is an “urban use” model and comes in a traditional frame or a step-through frame. The Nine-e is a mountain bike, “a genuine 29” hardtail,” according to Felt’s website. The Sport-e also comes in traditional or step-through frame, and is great for running around town.
