E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
January 18, 2022
Hey guys, Dustin here, CEO of sixthreezero. Today I'm going to introduce you to one of our newest electric bikes, the Ride in the Park. So stick around.
All right. So today I'm going to introduce you to one of our newest electric bikes, the Ride in the Park 500 watt. But before I do hit that subscribes button below, stay in touch with us here at sixthreezero and be the first to know about all the new products we're putting out new content and of course, the giveaways we do for bikes, e-bikes, and accessories. So hit subscribe.
All right. So our newest electric bike, the Ride in the Park. This is what we would call a city hybrid bike with thin tires, upright ride, super zippy. So let me give you a little tour around it.
So like a lot of our other electric bikes, we have the battery on the rear rack. I personally really like that because it provides a couple of benefits. One it's very easy to get it on and off, has very easy access. Also with the rear rack already back here, it just creates a nice little place for it to go. Now let me walk you over here to this one. I'll show you. I have the keys already right here, and we can just put this in and you turn it and the battery just slides on and off. So if you ever wanted to ride to work, bring the battery in and charge. Or park it in your garage and then you can bring the battery in and charge so it's ready the next time you go for a ride. Super easy access, and slides right in and locks back in place.
Now there's a power button under here as well you can flip on and off, and then that would power the front here. So with this size battery, your range is going to be about 15, or let's say 10 to 30 miles with full throttle. On average somewhere between 15 to 20 miles if you just use the throttle. If you use the pedal assist, you're looking at about a 30 to 50-mile range. And of course, you can also ride this bike with no electricity at all, just pedaling like a normal bike and you can remove the battery to reduce the weight and increase efficiency if you should choose to ride it like a normal bike.
Now, one caveat to remember with any electric transportation products, the range is going to really vary. The same is true with gasoline cars. If you're going up a lot of hills, if you're pulling a lot of weight, if you're going on very rough terrain or you're dragging a lot of rubber on the ground or going over tough terrain, you're going to decrease the capacity of the battery quicker. The charge of the battery is quicker. So the ranges I'm giving you are averages. You might get more, you might get less, depending on also your weight, your body type, how tall you are. I'm 220 pounds. Somebody 150 pounds is going to get more range out of their battery than me, just because the battery and the motor don't have to work as hard with a lighter rider. So just wanted to explain that.
Now, moving on to the motor. The motor is mounted on the rear wheel. A rear-mounted motor is really great for around-town riding, flat riding. Hills also. The only reason you'd want a mid-drive motor is you're doing more mountain biking where you really need a lot of torque. But in this case, the rear-drive motor is great. Rides really smoothly over the pavement. And our motor is 500 watts of power. So this is going to get you up most hills. It's also going to get you up to top speeds of 20 miles an hour with the throttle, and 28 miles an hour with pedal assist.
And with the thin tires on this bike, you can zip because you're not dragging much rubber at all. Very little amount of rubber up contacting the ground with this tire. And so it's really zippy. A lot of fun. A lot of power there. More power than most people will need.
So moving up here to the display. You've got a nice big display. You've got a power button here. You can hold that on and the display pops up. The top is your battery life. This is your miles per hour. This number right here is your pedal assist. So right here on the handlebars, you have two arrows up and down. You can regulate how much power output the bike gives you while you're pedaling. And actually, this can go down to level zero. So if you want to ride it with no assistance, go down to level zero, you can go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. In pedal assist five, you're going to be able to hit up to 28 miles an hour. You're going to get a lot of assistance from the bike.
Now another thing to note, with the throttle and the speeds this is a Class 2 e-bike. That may be important for your local city, regional, or state laws. So that's something you may want to know. Now you've got your throttle right here and the throttle is very simple. You just push your thumb down and the wheel goes. And it's as simple as that.
So really three modes in this bike. Ride it as a normal bike don't engage the motor, use the pedal-assist or use the throttle. It's beautiful because as you are riding, depending on how your body is tiring or not tiring, you can use the assistance of the bike or not use the assistance of the bike. The choice is really up to you.
So moving on to the frame and the actual bicycle components of this bike. This is a comfort city hybrid frame. So you've got a low step-through. You can mount it by stepping through. And you've got a comfortable, soft saddle. And the other thing, too, is with these handlebars. They're narrow for tight steering, but they've also got a shape where they come into your body. So you can see me, I'm fully upright, comfortable and my arms are very relaxed, but I still have tight steering with the narrow handlebars. So it makes this bike somewhere between comfort and performance. It gives you really the best of both worlds.
Now stepping off, you've got disc brakes also. So the disc brakes are great for pinpoint stopping. These are really essential on electric bikes because top speeds are higher. You want to be able to stop as easily and quickly as possible. Most normal bikes, sorry not most, but our standard bikes don't require disc brakes for the type of performance level. But most electric bikes do have disc brakes.
Okay. I also want to show you the tires. Now you can see aside from the cool colors we have, these are very thin tires, which make them roll really easy. So it's really good handling, precision handling. And also once you get the momentum of the tire going, it really rolls easily with minimal drag. I've said rolls easily many times. But on some of our other models, we have thicker tires, which are better for other things like stability and rougher terrains. In this case, these are really suited for smooth paved surfaces where you want to roll and go fast.
So we do have two frames here. One is our step-through frame. Also, we notate that as a women's frame, but everything's unisex. And then we have our tire top two frames or what we dictate as a men's frame. Now the men's frame is a little less comfort and a little more performance-focused. As an example, the seat is a narrower seat, more streamlined, has a retro feel, and really more of a road bike saddle. Now the handlebars are the same, but with this frame, it's a little bit more stretched out and you're going to be leaning forward a little bit more. So you can see, for me, I have a little bit more forward angle.
Now what this is going to do is it's just going to allow you to have tighter steering because you're forward on the bike a little bit more. You're a little more aerodynamic. It's more of a traditional road bike seated position. The benefit of this though is faster speeds and the ability to just control the bike at higher speeds. But if comfort is what you prefer than this setup's going to be better for you. Also mounting and dismounting this bike's going to require you to bring your leg over the rear, versus on this one you can do a step through. So one key difference between the two.
Lastly, actually what I didn't mention is that both of these models come with a seven-speed derailleur. So you've got seven speeds to use, whether you're riding it as a normal bike or in pedal assist. Now, these gears are independent of the motor. They have nothing to do with the actual electrical components. But as you're increasing your pedal assist, you're going to want to increase your gear on the bike so it gets harder to pedal. That way you can get the bike going faster. If you leave it in too low of gear with too high of a pedal assist, you're just going to be spinning your legs and really not being able to keep up with the pedal assist. So it's helpful to have that range. Also when you're doing the pedal assist on hills, it's helpful to be able to shift down into first speed, making it easier to pedal. You can tackle big hills, little hills, very easily. So having the seven-speed gear ratio is a huge benefit.
Also, if you want to ride this like a standard bike, a normal bike without using the electric motor assist or the throttle, you have the ability to have these seven speeds and use them and shift as you see fit. You will notice if you ride an electric bike without the motor, it doesn't feel that much different so long as the battery and the motor aren't super heavy, which ours are not. I guarantee if you rode these bikes, you probably wouldn't even tell the difference between the two. Between a normal bike and a standard bike.
