Excellent Moustache All Rounder – Now reduced
This was our best selling Moustache bike in 2018 and 2019 by quite some margin. we have just a couple of the 2019 bikes left an they are reduced in our end of season sale.
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.
We also now have the 2020 version available in some sizes.
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 and provide enough light even for darker roads.
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.
You can get the XRoad 3 with a 400 Wh or 500 Wh battery which we believe are likely to give 40 or 50 miles range with average use respectively.
The 400 Wh battery is normally £200 cheaper than the 500 Wh.
We now just have large sizes left – suitable fro someone about 5′ 10″ and above.
The Moustache bikes come with a full 5 year warranty on the frame and 2 years on the electrics.
