Dash - folding electric bike

The Dash folding electric bike has been very popular with motorhome and caravan owners. It’s sleek low step through frame and easy to use controls make it a great leisure ride.

The Dash has even had a starring role on the BBC tv programme The Apprentice, when one of the episodes was filmed at this show. The stylish good looks of the Dash made it a hit with all the contestants and show regular Nick Hewer. Nick commented “I really like this” as he whizzed along the corridors.

Website review of Granite Pro

I bought this bike on the 13th September and so far have covered about 100 miles. The shop (The Cycle Co. in Chelmsford) were very helpful and so far the bike has been brilliant. I have really enjoyed it and having not cycled at all for about 25 years that is saying something. It feels well put together and the power assistance is easy to use. I haven’t often used the power only option but again this seems to work well. generally you still need to pedal up hills but with very little effort if that is what you want (which I do).

One very small point. when you register the bike for the warranty and with datatag you need to quote the serial number. This takes some finding and on my bike was very difficult to read as the paint had covered it up. This is a bit of a pain as I am not sure if I have quoted the right number.

However overall a really great bike and I would certainly recommend it.

Breeze Review – via Facebook

….I have had my Batribike Breeze for about 6 weeks now and am enjoying it……..

The 6 speed deraileur gears are a little low geared but it makes for easy riding……

The removeable battery provides adequate power to pull away without any wobbles and then the pedals are turned to provide assistance from the rear hub motor…..

There are 3 levels of electrical assistance and on the lowest level I would estimate a range of 50 to 60 miles plus I have pedaled from St Ives to Cambridge and back along the cycle path beside the guided busway and on return I still had 2 led lights from 4 showing on the battery capacity….

On this trip I used a combination of pedal assist at all levels and also quite a way using electric only by operation of the thumb throttle. The folded bike fits neatly in my hatchback Toyota Yaris.

I would thoroughly recommend the Batribike Breeze.  A well made folding bike which has enabled me with a broken ankle to get back on a bike after many years and get some not too taxing exercise…….
