The low centre of gravity of the Gocycle design means that handling the product is easy.

In conventional bicycles, central or rear hub drives unbalance the bike, over-burden the transmission, and leave you in the wrong gear. In Gocycle, electric motor powers the front wheel, pedals power the rear.

powerful Electric motor

A bespoke front-hub motor separates the powered drive from pedal drive. Lighter and providing better front/rear weight distribution, this system also provides powerful advantages when the lights go green. Conventional e-bikes use derailleur gears which can leave even experienced cyclists in the wrong gear at the lights. Not only does Gocycle’s predictive electronic gear shift ensure that you are never in the wrong gear, the front hub drive never can be. Only Gocycle makes sure you always make a clean getaway.

Not only does Gocycle’s predictive electronic gear shift ensure that you are never in the wrong gear, the front hub drive never can be. Only Gocycle makes sure you always make a clean getaway.

Bosch electric bike motor drives are heavier than the Gocycle's two wheel drive format and the problem with mid drive electric bike motors is that they don't provide much assistance if you are not in the correct gear. For example, imagine starting your car in 4th or 5th gear, the motor will struggle to provide much electric assistance. The Gocycle direct drive is not related to the gearing, so you always get a good amount of assistance.

In conventional bicycles, central or rear hub drives unbalance the bike, over-burden the transmission, and leave you in the wrong gear. In Gocycle, electric motor powers the front wheel, pedals power the rear.

Richard Thorpe left Mclaren Cars Ltd. in 2002 and from his one bedroom London flat began to develop the best electric bicycle in the world. That journey started with the iconic Gocycle G1, followed by the award winning G2, and the amazing G3. In October 2016 on Kickstarter, Gocycle launched a new model, the Gocycle GS and you can buy one today.

Why should people ride an electric bike?

Firstly, they are fun! There is nothing quite like the feeling of the extra boost and speed you get from an electric powered bicycle. I’ve been commuting and riding one for more than ten years and I still get a smile on my face every time I ride. Most people think that riding an electric bicycle will make you un-healthy or is “cheating”. But it is just not so. People ride and exercise based on their personality. Ask any ebike owner if they are in better shape after they bought an ebike – the answer will be yes!

w

How can an electric bike impact positively on your life?

Electric bikes can change your life. It sounds cliché, but it’s true. They are genuinely a transformative product. They will help you become more active and stay healthy. Ebikes are not like fad diets or a new gym membership that you stop using, they become part of your life, sustainable and continuing to provide you pleasure and health benefit over the long term.

What is driving the electric bike market and how does Gocycle fit into those forces?

By 2030, urban areas will be home to more than 60% of the projected world population of 8 billion people. This will put tremendous pressure on the environment, as well as public infrastructure that is already struggling to meet the growing demand for transportation and basic services. Congestion, lack of parking space and poor air quality are rendering today’s automobiles, and the internal combustion engine in particular, unsustainable as the core of personal urban transportation. Inevitable pressure on urban populations and health is driving a paradigm shift in awareness and adoption of sustainable personal electric urban transport. And that’s where Gocycle comes in!

w

Why does a Gocycle feel and ride so comfortably when it looks so different?

Bicycles are for people, not orangutans. Many bicycles and designers just don’t get that point – take a look at any futuristic bike design and you will see that the designers are contemplating a customer that is a new species of humanoid usually with extremely long arms, super short legs, and a very supple back. There are some things you just can’t change, like the way people are made! Bicycles need to be comfortable and so the touch points – handlebars, seat, pedals, front wheel, and rear wheel all need to fit the human body!

Why not use big wheels?

Do you mean like wagon wheel size? Look at a car wheel, it is smaller than a traditional bicycle wheel. Look at a motorcycle or motor scooter wheel size, even smaller than a Gocycle wheel! Compact wheels are simply better. They are lighter, stronger, and allow for more space for carrying luggage. They also allow freedom of design for frame shapes better suited to how we use and live with a bicycle in our everyday lives. The world’s fastest bicycles are all running on Gocycle sized wheels. The UCI banned compact size wheels because they were faster! Compact wheels mean you can fit the Gocycle into city living spaces or elevators. And besides being better, they simply look cooler!

Why not use a diamond tube frame design?

The diamond tube frame design may be good for the Tour de France, but it makes no sense for an urban electric bicycle. What you want is a low step through frame design and shapes that are smooth and easy to wipe clean. Keeping all the oily bits and the battery for example protected and hidden neatly inside the frame also makes sense. Our trademark Vgomonic frame fit which means the Gocycle will fit you, your family, or friends comfortably is just not possible with a traditional diamond tube frame design.

Why is the hub drive better than center mounted crank drives?

The fundamental problem with center mounted motor drives is that if you are not in the correct gear, the motor is very in-efficient and you’ll get very little assistance! Like starting your car in 4th or 5th gear, you’re not going to get very far. The systems do not take into account the habits of the rider. Most of us are not elite athletes, and therefore we usually are in the wrong gear when riding, and mostly, we are in the wrong gear when we come to a stop. We all know the feeling of starting out in a high gear, and if your ebike has a center mounted crank drive solution with a derailleur system, the motor is not going to help you much if you are in the wrong gear!

China sells the highest number of ebikes in the world by far, what do you think of Chinese ebikes and the drive solution they chose?

Many western companies and people claim to have invented the ebike. Not so. The ebike we know today is a Chinese invention in my opinion and was developed about 30 years ago with tens of millions sold each year in China. There are significant cost pressures as well as reliability and accessibility design considerations. Chinese ebikes have evolved and been refined by local market forces and time. And what drive solution do they have: direct hub drive motors.
