“What’s a bike doing in the Nestaway Boats range?!” we hear you say. Well GoCycle bikes are rather special: they’re electric, and they fold up. And as you probably know by now, we specialise in folding boats, and are also great fans (and sell a great number of) electric outboard motors. And we believe there is likely to be a lot of crossover between those who want folding boats and those who want folding bikes – yachtsmen and motorhomers for example.
So why the GoCycle in particular? These bikes were engineered by an industry outsider, not a bicycle man but a Formula One motorsport man, Richard Thorpe (ex Mclaren). Many of the components are completely bespoke to GoCycle (wheels, motor, frame), and many others are bespoke modified for GoCycle (brakes, gears by Shimano, etc). And that makes for a folding electric bike that really stands out from the crowd. The most notable features include:
– Incredible Light Weight. At 16kg it’s one of, if not the, lightest folding electric bikes on the market.
– Compact Folded Size. 78x37x58cm. And we’ll say it again, just 16kg.
– Pitstopwheels. The patented sidemount wheels are incredibly easy to fit and remove. They just make conventional designs look completely outdated.
– Cleandrive. The chain, front and rear gears are all fully-enclosed. No oil on you, your clothes, or wherever you store it. And the chain won’t get clogged up or worn out with sand and grit.
