Moustache All Rounder
This was our best selling Moustache bike in 2018 by quite some margin. This is the 2019 version and there have been just a few tweaks. We like the new colour and the other main change is that Moustache now use their own rims.
This bike is one of the most versatile e-bike we have come across being an all terrain and yet totally practical bike. This has all you could need from an electric bike – a powerful motor (Bosch Performance Line) and the largest Bosch battery (the 500 watt hour) cleverly integrated into the frame.
Bosch Drive Unit
On this version you get the Bosch Performance Line motor .This offers more assistance with up to 275% available in the Turbo mode. As with other Bosch motors, it allows for 4 different levels of assistance and you can turn the motor off as well. We believe that the Bosch motor is still the best in the market.
The battery is the Bosch 500 watt hour battery – masses of range – up to about 100 miles depending on the assistance level. Realistically, using all the levels of assistance and riding on varying terrain you should expect about 50 miles.
On request we can offer this bike with a 400 watt hour battery (range of around 40 miles with average use) for £200 less.
All Purpose Components
The versatility comes from the great combination of the tyres, the light frame, front suspension, integrated mudguards, rack and lights. The tyres are 2.15 inches across. That’s only slightly narrower than standard mountain bike tyres (about 2.35 ins) but nobbly so it will cope well with mud.
The bike is comfortable with a nice Selle Royal Wave ergonomic saddle and the suspension forks are enough to take bumps out of the tracks and roads! There is also, for a bit more comfort, a suspension seatpost.
There are good LED lights, front and rear, that run off the battery.
The rack is compatible with child seats and a variety of panniers – but especially with the Ortlieb panniers. The rack has fittings so the Ortlieb panniers can be put on or removed in one simple movement.
What makes the Moustache bikes stand out is the thought that goes into the detail. They start with a clean slate and no pre conceived assumptions. This means that the end product is unique and designed specifically for a purpose with no compromises. The mudguards for example are Moustache’s own innovation because they were not happy with the off the shelf products that are available. The slightly swept back handle bars are another innovation, which is where the name comes from.
We love the Moustache bikes and if versatility, comfort and style. If this is what you are looking for at a very reasonable price then this is a great bike for you.
We normally carry this bike in Small, Medium or Large. Extra Large can be ordered on request. The bike is available in 2 frame types: Open, which has a lower, step through top tube and the normal frame. The bike pictured is the normal frame, the bike in the video is the Open frame.
The Moustache bikes come with a 5 year warranty on the frame and 2 years on the electrics.
