Haro Double Peak i/O Mountain E-Bike 2018
Like a bike that you can ride to work, but still be able to take out for some fun on the weekends. The Doublepeak may be just the thing.
E-Bikes open up a whole new range of opportunities, especially if you are not quite as fit as you would like to be. The power assistance kicks in when you start to tire, or when climbing. Of course, if you are riding to work and don't wish to raise a sweat, you can dial up the power assistance so that it is a cruise all the way. The amount of effort you apply is entirely up to you.
The Shimano Steps E6050 produces around 50Nm of torque. This is sufficient to assist you to climb very steep inclines with ease. It's a real buzz to come to a long steep climb, and be able to reach the top quickly and easily, then just continue as though you hadn't even encountered an incline. It makes long tough rides even more enjoyable, especially if your riding companion is stronger than you are.
The 450watt-hour battery allows for several hours of hard use, or about 100kms or more under varied conditions. This will be more than adequate for most users, and if more was required, it is possible to buy an additional 500watt-hour battery although the cost may be prohibitive.
Riding to work is likely to give a range of 100-130kms, so battery charging will not be required too often. Battery life is claimed to be around 1000 recharges before a significant drop in power, which, for most of us would be about 10 years life. That means very economical transport....and fun!

There is a misconception with some that an electric bike means that you will get little or no exercise. This is entirely false. The Pedelec system is designed to apply power proportional to your input. If you wish to work out, then you can set it on ECO and the motor will apply power at the rate of 70% of your input. Then it cuts out at 25-26 kph, so you can rise above that under your own power. Of course, you can always switch it off to get a tougher work-out, it is still a pleasant bike to ride, just a bit heavier climbing the hills.
Conversely, if you wish to take it easy you can set it on a higher power setting and apply little effort. On the High power setting, the motor applies 225% of your effort, so hill climbing is a breeze. You apply minimal effort as you fly up the hills, or cruise the bike paths.
The range is determined by the power setting and general conditions. A reasonable guide is about 100km, when riding using the ECO setting, or about 50-60kms on Medium, down to about 40kms on HIGH.
The display shows the speed, battery condition, and power setting at all times, so you can regulate your ride to ensure that you don’t run out of power during really long rides.
The battery can be topped up to about 80% of its capacity in 2 hours, or a full recharge in 4 hours. The battery does not have to be removed from the bike, and it will automatically turn off when charged. The battery life is about 1,000 recharges. That means around 100,000kms on ECO. That means that it is very economical transport at that cost. It is little wonder that electric bikes have taken off in Europe.
