E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
November 1, 2022
I'm Dustin, and I'm going to show you the three electric bikes that all seniors should know about in 2023.
So I'm going to show you the three electric bikes all seniors should know about in 2023. They are behind me. From left to right, it is the Sixthreezero EVRYjourney, the Sixthreezero EVRYjourney, the electric trike, and the Sixthreezero Around the Block. Now, these come in various pallets. You can check out sixthreezero.com to see all the colors they come in Navy, black, teal, cream. Don't worry about this one rolling away here, and so there's a vast colorway.
Now, that's the first reason why all seniors should know because these have a vibrant color palette, something different. Every other e-bike out there, or e-trike, for that matter, is white, black, red, blue, something mundane. We have this color palette. We do have black, but we have cream, navy, and teal. All these bikes that I see here are available in those four colorways, so you can check that out.
In addition to that, let me start here with the EVRYjourney. Now, this is the all-purpose electric bike, the first of the two two-wheel bikes all seniors should know about. The major reason for that is the ergonomics of this e-bike. It has a very easy step-through frame. You step through to mount and dismount, making it very safe to get on and off. In addition to that, this has a special frame design. It has what's called a forward-pedaling frame design. You can see this down tube is shifted forward, which has moved the pedals slightly forward.
Now, what does this do? It means that the seat is lower to the ground, but it allows the rider to still get ample leg extension while being lowered to the ground. So it makes this e-bike safer because you can plant your feet easier while still getting leg extension while you're riding, and you do need leg extension while riding an e-bike, especially if you're going to either ride it without the pedal assist or you're going to ride it with the pedal assist. You want to be able to get proper leg extension to generate as much power as you need.
So ergonomics, that step through, is one of the major reasons all senior riders should know about it. The other thing, let me get back on really quick, is the riding position in the ergonomics. If you can look at me from the side view, you'll see my back is completely upright, my arms are relaxed. What does this mean? It means no pain after rides. You're not going to have any tension in your shoulders, any tension in your wrists. It's going to be nice and easy. So when you're done riding 20-plus miles, you won't feel the pain in your body.
Now you might be sore in your legs, but you're not going to have pain in your back, pain in your shoulders, and things like that. You can see the handlebars swoop into your body, making it so you don't have to overextend your arms. Some of the e-bikes might be out here. You might have to lean forward. Again, nice ergonomic riding position.
In addition, there are four custom adjustment points. A tilt of the seat, the height of the seat, tilt of the handlebar, tilt or height of the handlebars, that allows for this to be adjusted to varying heights of riders from five feet all the way up to six feet, and we have demos and test ride videos of the EVRYjourney electric bicycle on our YouTube channel. You can check those out. Just search for EVRYjourney on our YouTube channel, and you'll see lots of videos.
Okay, now let's get into the power. You've got a 500-watt rear hub motor, 48 volts, 10.4 amp power battery. This 500 watts is going to be more than enough power for senior riders. I've seen a lot of senior riders get on there, and when the first jolt of the pedal assist comes in, they are blown away by how powerful it is, and you have five levels of assistance, one through five, you can set and determine how much assistance you want from the pedal assist. So this is more than enough power to take you up hills, to take you around town, and get you where you need to go, in addition, the top speed on that is going to be up to 28 miles an hour in pedal assist, and 20 miles an hour with the throttle.
What I haven't mentioned is you have three riding modes in this e-bike. So you can ride it like a regular bike, you can ride it in pedal assist, or you can ride it with the throttle. The choice is yours, and again, up to 28 miles an hour with pedal assist, up to 20 miles an hour if you're just doing throttle.
With the battery now, you're going to get ranges of up to 60 miles. So that ride that you went out for when you were on a regular bike, maybe it was 10 miles, take that to 20, 30 miles, because now that you have the assistance, this motor can help you.
Now the range is so vast, it's going to be anywhere from 20 to 60 miles because it really depends on, number one, are you using pedal assist, and what level of pedal assist, or are you using throttle? Also, the weight of the rider, the terrain, the topography, all of those factors play into how long this battery lasts, but up to 60 miles is a long way, so it's going to take you anywhere you want to go, and you're going to be able to do those longer rides and go to the places you've never gone to on a bike.
In addition, the battery's easily removable. I, unfortunately, don't have the key with me right now. Pop it out, take it inside, and charge it. You can bring it with you to a store. Again, very easy to charge. Charges to full in about four to six hours. Again, depends on where you're plugging it in, and also how full or not full the battery is when you plug it in.
Okay. The other reason this is great for seniors is the disc brakes. You're going to have really great stopping power. You can stop on a dime with these disc brakes. Very safe. You don't have to worry about traveling at high speeds and not being able to stop.
One thing I also want to mention is the pedal assist levels. So senior riders or anyone that doesn't want to have too much speed, you can adjust the assistance level on the screen here, one, two, three, four, five, that way you can dictate how much output you want or don't want.
Okay, let me just do a quick demo for you. Now if you want to see more specific videos and demos of the EVRYjourney, you can see tons of them on our YouTube channel. I'm just going to do a quick once-over.
The last thing I want to mention is why you want to know about this. This is a seven-speed bike. This looks like a normal bicycle. You can ride it like a normal bicycle, and you have seven speeds here. You can easily shift and ride it like a normal bike. I'm just going to show you. Look, no power on. I'm just riding like a normal bicycle. You don't even notice the weight of the battery. Now you can remove the battery and reduce the weight by eight pounds. Make it even easier. Now you just click on it. Oh, you can see right there, I turned it on and the pedal assist clicked on, and now I'm flying, and now if I don't want to pedal, I just hit the throttle, and here I go and look at this. Stopping. No problem.
That's about it. Now you may hear some squealing out of the brakes. That's just simply we have to make a little adjustment, but that's no big deal, and the brakes work themselves in. This is brand new out of the box, so the brakes haven't fully worked themselves in yet. So the number one bike all seniors should know about in 2023 is the EVRYjourney, Sixthreezero EVRYjourney, 500-watt electric, and it's really great for the ergonomics, the power, and also the sleek-looking frame.
Now we're going to move on right here to the tricycle. Now the beauty of the tricycle is it's the same frame, but if you're just not feeling comfortable on two wheels, a three-wheel electric bike is a good option, and actually, if you want to see, we just did a demonstration with some senior riders, and for one of the riders that had been a long time getting back into riding, and he wasn't comfortable on two wheels and we put him on the EVRYjourney 250 watt electric trike, and he loved it.
Now a couple of differences between the EVRYjourney two-wheel is, obviously, it's three-wheel, but in addition to that, it's a 250-watt front hub motor. Now we've reduced it for the trike to keep it safer. Also, 250 watts is actually more than enough power. I'm going to hop on and do a demo, and I'll show you, but everything else is the same. Four custom adjustment points. You're going to get the same ergonomics. Top speed is going to be anywhere from 18 to 20, so a little bit slower, and in full throttle, it's going to be anywhere from 15 to 18, again, depending on the weight of the rider, but the principles are the same. You can ride this as a normal tricycle. You don't need to use the pedal assist. Also, this basket, we've put 800 pounds in here before and still driven this thing. Check out the YouTube channel. You can see all the demo videos we've done of this. Heavier riders, different size/height riders. Senior riders have taken this on a 10-mile ride, also. So there's lots of info out there. Check it out, you can see everything.
Now again, the beauty of this step through... Also, now you're on, you can sit down, you can balance. I don't have to worry about balancing anything. You're already on the tricycle. I can turn the power on here.
Oh, there we go, and now you just go, and the same deal. I'll put this in zero. Very simple to ride without any electricity. You can see, and now when I kick on the pedal assist, watch this, even easier. Now I start going a little faster, and the brakes are great. See that? Come around. Now lastly, the throttle. So this thing is really a mode of transportation. So if you live somewhere in a community and it's close to getting to the pool, or the grocery store, this can become a primary form of transportation for you. You can see stop very easily. So it's very safe, and the beauty, easy on and off.
Now on this, you're going to get anywhere from 10 to 15 miles of range. Same deal. The battery's easily removable. Just click the key, and pull it out. There it is, put it back in. So take it with you, charge it in your house, whatever you want to do. Very easy to take on and off. So 10 to 50 miles of range, depends on the loads you're carrying, the weight of the rider, where you're going, and again, what level of pedal assist or throttle are you using? All factors play in, but doesn't this look good too? This is one of the best-looking trikes that you're going to find out there. The colorway brown seat and grips, everything. So these are the top two so far all seniors should know about, electric bikes seniors should know in 2023.
Let's move on to our last one. Now lastly is ours Around the Block electric bike. Now this one's a little bit different. Sorry, let's get this positioned here.
Okay, now this one's a little bit different, but this is really a throwback to the cruiser style, and the reason senior riders should know about this one, really, is because of the great retro look and feel of this cruiser e-bike.
Now, principles are the same, doesn't have the same forward pedaling design as the EVRYjourney, and it's a little less of a step through, but still a step through, but you've got the great ergonomic frame, and it's a little more upright. The pedals are directly below your feet, and you've got the traditional balloon tires and swooping handlebars. So you can see my back's totally upright, I'm comfortable. It's just a different look. More traditional cruiser, very unique. You don't see a lot of cruiser e-bikes like this look. So if you like a traditional retro cruiser feel, this is the one for you.
Now, the same thing is true, it's a 500-watt rear motor, and it has the same battery capacity as this one, which is going to be 20 to 60 miles, depending on pedal assist throttle, where you're going in top speed is up to 20 miles an hour with throttle and 28 in pedal assist, and I'll just do a quick demo for you, and again, we've got demos of this e-bike also.
Okay, so now we power on, and you can see... Go ahead and put the pedal assist on, and there we go, off and running, and if you want, just do the throttle, and we're flying, and I'm braking.
So they all function very similarly. This has the disc brakes to match the EVRYjourney and put your kickstand down. So a little bit different than the EVRYjourney. More traditional frame design, the same motor, same ergonomics. Four custom adjustment points are on all three of these bikes. So these are truly the three e-bikes I believe all seniors should know about in 2023.
