Amazing looking Gazelle electric bike
This is a bit of a break from tradition for Gazelle with a more sporty, less Dutch looking bike – aimed at the customer who likes simplicity and clean lines.
The Cityzen C8+ HMB is a great looking bike with all the quality that you would expect from Gazelle but the sitting style is more what we would expect in the UK rather than ‘sit-up-and-beg.’ The bike is perfect for the city as the name suggests but also for leisure rides. In the shop at the moment is the tropical blue crossbar version and the colour is quite something!
It comes with the Bosch Active Line motor giving plenty of assistance without compromising on the range. You should expect to get at least 60 miles with this bike in mixed assistant levels. The 500Wh power tube battery is fully enclosed within the frame to add to the sleek lines.
The bike is kept light with no front suspension but is still very comfortable and practical with mudguards a rack and effective LED lights that run off the battery.
The gears are Shimano Alfine 8 speed. These are hub gears which give a very smooth gear change and because they are contained in the hub are essentially maintenance free.
There is an integrated lock, Ergon grips and excellent Shimano disk brakes.
The bike we have in stock at the moment is a 53 cm frame.This would suit anyone from about 5′ 7″ to 5′ 11″.
