2018 Friday – Second Hand – Large – £1799
A stunning bike from 2018 that a customer has traded in for another bike. The bike was bought in 2018 and has clocked up 1,000 miles.
Readers of these pages will know that we are fans of Moustache bikes. In fact one of us here rides this very model. Everything that Moustache produce is done with style and the Friday 27 captures that essence in spades. As the name suggests this is a casual bike for cruising around town – with ease and in comfort – and with that ‘Friday’ feeling.
The original price of this bike was £2899. The bike is in good condition and belies the 1,000 miles on the clock. It is a large size and will suit someone over 5’9″.
All of the Moustache bikes are developed with hydorformed variable thickness, aluminium tubes. This means that the bike is light, while remaining strong and streamlined.
Moustache were also the first manufacturer to integrate the Bosch batteries into the frame of the bike.
This bike is gorgeous to look at. Highlights include a Brooks leather saddle; super comfortable wide tyres – 2.35″ wide; a ‘Quick park stem’ that allows you to simply twist the handle bars 90 degrees and park the bike in a corridor, or other small space; powerful Axa lights and of course the Bosch motor and battery. The tyres are extra wide ensuring comfort on the pot-holed roads of Surrey and even down tracks and tow paths.
It comes equipped with a kick stand, very effective front and rear lights that run off the battery and a rack equipped for the Ortlieb pannier bags. These bags click on and off the bike so you are not messing about with straps.
Bosch Drive System
The motor is the Bosch Performanceline – This motor provides 65 Nm of torque and will assist you with up to 275% of your Wattage. About town this is a great amount of power and acceleration.
The responsiveness is breathtaking, giving back an exact amount of assistance according to the pressure you apply to the pedals, available from the moment you start pedalling, and changes several times a second to meet the precise power you give so you’re always in full control.
The battery that comes with the bike is the 400 watt hour battery. This will give a range of about 40 miles. That is a good estimate rather than a best case scenario that you may hear elsewhere. It assumes that you will use the motor in various modes, up and down hills etc., The battery has done 1000 miles but this is nothing in the life of a Bosch battery. They are easily capable of 30,000 miles.
We can upgrade the battery is to a 500 watt hour battery for an extra £150 – this will increase the mileage to about 50 miles.
As the bike is second hand it does not come with a full warranty. However we will guarantee the motor, battery and frame of the bike for 1 year.
We will also fully service the bike replacing any worn parts as required.
