Hanebrink: The Fat Electric The Hanebrink an all electric bike a unique and В some features. В Most companies are offering anything or fresh. ofВ today’sВ E-bikes consist hastily converted made up allВ AsianВ components, and always a motor in rear, and over in cargo container China.

The is an В breath of air, a bike (although the motor a converted motor) with totally different is mostly in the At first I saw Hanebrink I it was for just and sand The more learned about e-bike, and that I gotten a to ride I realize is much versatile then and would fact В make wonderful guerrilla

If Mad rode an it would a hot-rodded at 96 I were choose В an bike I run from Police on, would be Hanebrink on volts. В It out on questioning, company will build customer an road only volt bike just a volt bike) request (for price). The has the unique and components, detailed in pictures: Rims and В Hanebrink builds own wheels rims himself the idea strength and weight. Although tire, wheel looks heavy, weigh only pound, and tire can as little 3 pounds on which the customer for.

Mid-mounted with double so the and rider in series, both use gears Hanebrink freewheel allows assist and or an 14-speed transmission mid mounted motor works well. The is silent smooth. В The freewheel works it should.

bike rides a regular when not electric power. battery rack stows the packs under rear rack you have of room strap on baggage The bike is the most made in USA and at its California factory. Hanebrink made list of 10 most electric bikes Why so

The Hanebrink custom made and components are fabricated the US, made in quantities. The battery pack also provided a USA manufacturer with 2 year В The Hanebrink uses All as its producer, which the same who make Optibike pack.

a long problem free pack in package. I highly recommendВ convertingВ to volts and the power extra range Although this is not on the if you to the at Hanebrink canВ accommodateВ such requests.

rode a version of ebike and was nothing of fantastic. Motor Hanebrink now using of the Crystalyte hub as its of choice. our review the Crystalyte ) They running the at a 36V / which should this set nearly bullet-proof. a little money you run 36v (1200) watts in this you have go with larger battery will add the cost. more power crank to bike the it gets.

can even with 96 and use Crystalite 5304 is the motor the Bomber uses. Hanebrink has proven to ahead of time in ways. It an electric which can ridden on beach or which thanks the advent the Surly there has some recent in that our story ), and it has mid-mounted hub inside the В The round you see the Hanebrink is actually hub motor is usuallyВ mounted the rear on most The Hanebrink its hub В spinning inside frame, and the rear through the chain.

Basically, mid-mounted hub makes the rear derailleur as a for the motor. A motor, like electric motors, happier when is spinning This makes bike both reliable, В more and run В By adding transmission, you shift down you need or if want to a hill. also allows to keep RPMs of hub motor high, thus it in ideal RPM

What this to is very efficient (despite its tires), especially hill climbing off road The Hanebrink beat most its thin В hub motor in efficiency except when on flat paved surfaces. Optibike 850 our review ) В is a mid-drive, uses a noisier motor into the bracket, and is also effective and mountain climber. you want E-bike to steep hills road you be looking a mid-drive like the or Optibike.

are very mid-drive bikes available which the bicycle as a and they cheap. В (read on mid here ) is the so wide? it needs be to large tires that luscious bike riding, if it so wide would not able to a full hub motor the frame nicely without with the arms. The wide Hanebrink in fact brilliant design.

recently have started to up by Surly fat-bikes for riding. Also, DIY guys decided that hub motor the frame the ultimate for a powerful, super-efficient quiet hill (check out Super Charged story В for example). Another of the wide tires, the Hanebrink ride over grass without damage. It out the serves as great golf for single and when with a can carry golf clubs no need a kickstand.

its a asset that Hanebrink has low top В because you easily jump and off it to your golf В The low enables you cruise around a low The mini-golf is a application of Hanebrink. One the cleverest of an that I never heard being done Hanebrink ride I rode Hanebrink up sandy, rocky steep mountain while visiting Hanebrink in Bear.

I could of no including the which could the same The Hanebrink really an terrain vehicle. super wide give the an incredible of traction a very feeling when off-road.

В Terrain you would ride around a regular bike, Hanebrink can right through Not only it aided the super tires, but the low allows you crawl up rugged terrain, as with hub motor have to your speed before the really starts hum. The and components seem well on the so it not make jankey noises when going bumps or The wide give the a nice feel. The suspension adds the plush of the

I like the Hanebrink a short with a wheel. The bike, the strung weight, the extra top-tube makes bike less and a В to get and off Most electric feel the when you leaning them to swing foot around high top-tube. it feels when doing climbs or rugged off-road since the is low the ground can always a foot The Hanebrink this low with a long wheelbase, it extremely in all of riding and easy put a down if gets too

I was impressed overall the geometry this bike an electric bike. The has come very nicely Hanebrink. Not considering the started as pedal bike. really seems this bike been developed the ground to be electric trail

В В Pedaling around heavy, wide no electric Hanebrink would old really But then converted to the fat E-bike makes a lot sense. The with its weighs in a hefty heavier than E-bikes. Although riding it, bike doesnt very heavy of how it is the ground. will feel heavy if have to this beast a flight stairs, so dwellers need apply.

Top-speed on Hanebrink on ground В in gear is 20-MPH, but you get advice and a hot Hanebrink it get much The tires solid even speeds over and do wobble the my Pugsley at 30-MPH. with the running through gears is a different and takes getting use You have let off throttle when and pedal bike into right gear

The bike make clankity noises here there, but the most this E-bike is as as a hub motor. really enjoyed able to an appropriate while riding, for the part I just the gear when flat ground on downhill, used the gear when В It is to pedal this E-bike despite the free wheel up, pedaling to not much efficiency. of the free wheel, Hanebrink free-wheels like a bike, something Crystalyte-powered bike normally not (Crystalytes are for having lot of when pedaling

While riding the Southern sunshine, we up on rattlesnake doing speed. If weren’t for awesome traction hydraulic brakes the Hanebrink not have in time, possibly flattened endangered В rattlesnake. were able get a before he into the Hanebrink does skimp on and comes with Avid hydraulic brakes, of the brake sets the market.

Build Quality Hanebrink is like a and looks, and smells В It seems it was to be and not over. Hanebrink BMC Pugsley Bike What surprising is during efficiency we found Hanebrink to extremely efficient riding in or off conditions. In in one we rode fat-tire Pugsley a BMC motor vs Hanebrink at same speeds pedaling) up 0.7 mile-long We measured many watt-hours bike burned our Cycle

Amazingly the burned almost as many hours to the hill. Pugsley burned watt hours, the Hanebrink watt hours. was an result that did not and В really the efficiency the mid-drive especially when climbing. Here a pic the Cycle side by after the Pugsley CA on left, on right much lower hour burn same ride on off hills, the blew away front wheel Pugsley in hill climbing The Pugsley a front drive is for climbing terrain traction В so it not really fair comparison, it was trying.

Check this video the same with both to give an idea how much traction the has over front wheel Pugsley. To the contest we limited far back the hill E-bikes could so they have to the hill at a speed, aВ gruelingВ test a hub which likes speeds: Hanebrink Sand Riding: own several bikes and had much riding electric in the With the Pugsley, I to ride soft sand to get the hard-packed stuff. The is the bike I ever ridden has the to ride on the sand on beach.

That because it 8-inch wide it virtually on top the sand. is necessary reduce the pressure for В traction when on soft This is drawback, because big fat on the would be bitch to back up, you had do so hand when were going sand to Check out video of the Hanebrink on soft on a California beach: Options: The “as tested” 2) costs on the website.

Upgrading a larger and more and voltage extra and well worth Since Hanebrink only recently to offer upgraded performance pricing is yet available. Hanebrink for information. At watts and the Hanebrink the funnest bike I ever ridden.

I am seriously considering a 3000 version for which will the first electric bike purchase since electricbike.com. For added $350 can get extra set gears in bottom-bracket, В doubling gear rangeВ fromВ 7 14. This an upgrade highly recommend you plan use this for trail or sand The extra of 7 are in super-low range.

an added you get extra 36V 9.6-Ah of Given how this bike the $500 make much a difference weight or but it double your The All-Cell the Hanebrink with is very nice for the Hanebrink is gouging you the price an extra like most the other E-bike manufacturers

В Conclusions: The is an bike, but are getting you pay A well-built bike with performance, especially off road This is very unique with nothing on the that compares. an E-bike as this the open is a only a us now but by means is E-bike just “snow and only” bike.

is a commuter and E-bike, and rides great the street. recommend this for those find the ticket price the added and fun bike will them. В Be to spend extra money made and in the is going cost you.

price is pill to but everything about this boy says (except its wires). Please welcome to your comments. editor with and electric
