the GS

We have been on a mission to build the best electric bicycle in the world – the all new Gocycle GS! Perfectly designed for commuting, running errands, or just having fun! Don’t put off buying an electric bike any longer. Owning and riding a Gocycle GS is your chance to start living a more active, healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

the Pitstopwheel

Our patented quick-detach Pitstopwheels make folding down the Gocycle GS easy. The side mounted design not only looks great but makes it quick and easy to remove the wheels and make fixing a flat tire a no sweat deal.

Gocycle's patented Pitstopwheels are easy to remove and side mounted which makes fixing a flat tire simple. The front and rear wheels are identical and interchangable. They are injection moulded in magnesium with a process called Thixomoulding.

the Cleandrive

The multispeed enclosed chain drive keeps all the oily parts away from your clothes. It comes in a range of great colours: Red, Blue, Pink, Light Blue and Black, to match a grey or white front frame.

Gocycle's patented single sided Cleandrive keeps oil and grease off your clothes, is designed to be a maintenance free chain drive, and is also a monocoque design.

 

Vgonomic™ design

Gocycle provides contact points in exactly the same place as a large-wheel bike – but with more adjustment to fit more riders. The Vgonomic™-designed seat-post and frame geometry, combined with height and reach adjustable handlebars, provides adaptable fitting with superior comfort levels for a wide range of body types.

The Vgonomic frame design gives adjustment of the effective top tube length which is the most important factor in comfort for riding a bicycle.
The seat height and handlebar angle can be adjusted easily.

Backer 37. “Backed almost 50 kickstarter project. This definitely takes the crown. Super happy owner here 🙂

 

Building the first GS prototype

 

easy on the Planet

We use environmentally-friendly magnesium to create the Gocycle GS’ high-tech, durable, ultra-lightweight frame and wheels. It’s the only bicycle in the world to have an injection moulded magnesium frame and wheels. The special process is known as Thixomolding® and does not produce any ozone depleting SF6 emissions, but will still give the rider the similar weight and structural benefits as carbon fibre. Magnesium is widely available and easy to re-cycle.

 

the Fastest Wheels

Gocycle Pitstopwheels are the fastest bicycle wheels in the world!

The Gocycle Pitstopwheels are the fastest wheels in the world. In September 2013 at Battle Mountain, Nevada the Gocycle Pitstopwheels went 83 mph.

 

GS Prototype Design and Testing

One of the new parts that we developed for the Gocycle GS is the oversized handlebar. It’s hydroformed (that’s where you inject high pressure oil into an aluminium tube to form it out into a moulded shape) meaning we can route the cables cleanly, make a chunky handlebar that looks great and is structurally better – lighter and stiffer! All of the GS parts draw on our years of experience designing and testing components to international bicycle and ebike standards.

Last updated 3 September 2017

 

Gocycle has been mentioned in many press reviews as the best electric bike.
The Gocycle is an award winning electric bike. Reddot Award winner. Eurobike award winner. Taipei cycle show award winning.

 

How do I choose my frame size?

You don’t need to worry about that! Gocycle’s Vgonomic frame design means it can be adjusted to fit you, your partner, and your friends.

Will it fit me?

Yes! The Gocycle’s Vgonomic frame design gives universal fitting from 6’5” (Gocycle’s designer is 6’3”) to 5' and you can order a compact seat post after the campaign that will fit heights down to 4’6”.

Where is the Gocycle GS made?

We source all of the parts from the USA, Europe, Taiwan, and China. We run quality control checks on them and bring them into our factory in the UK. We then ship them to our bicycle assembly partner in Poland where the Gocycle GS will be assembled. Then we ship to our warehouses in the UK and North America and then on to your door step! We’ve got a strong supply chain that we have been working with for more than a decade.

Is there a more secure lock available than the cable coil lock?

Yes. The Gocycle Lockholster is available and fits neatly to the side of the frame. It is a very secure lock that has a silver European rating accepted and independent assessor of bicycle security approved.

How do I use the electric assist?

The electric motor is control by how hard you press on the pedals. You can adjust this with the GocycleConnect App. And there is also a boost button on the handlebar that you can press to access power in some modes.

Can the battery self-recharge during use?

Regenerative braking is not appropriate for bicycles at this time. While some products advertise this feature, on inspection, you will find that it increases weight, complexity and cost, and the amount of energy recovered is usually less than 10%.

How long will the battery last?

The battery should last for many years depending on your riding and we offer a one-year warranty.

Where is the battery?

At first glance, the Gocycle GS does not look like a conventional electric bike because we have neatly hidden the battery inside the frame. But don’t worry, should you ever need to replace the battery, it’s easily accessible.

Do I have to remove the battery to charge it?

No. It is not necessary to remove the battery from the frame to charge it.

How much will Gocycle cost to charge?

The charging cost is equal to having a 100W light bulb on for 3 hours. In the US and Canada, where KW/hour electricity costs average about 13 cents, the cost to recharge a Gocycle battery, from empty, would be about 3.9 cents.

How long will the brake pads last?

The brake pads should last the lifetime of the product. Depending on your riding style and environment you may need to replace the brake pads from time to time.

How do I change the brake pads?

It is highly unlikely that you will need to replace the brake pads. However, if the need arises, you can find full instructions of how to replace the pads in the Owner’s Manual.

How long will the brake disks last?

Brake disks will last the lifetime of the product.

Can I change the tire and tube for an alternative?

Yes, you can choose from many standard tires. Search on the Internet or ask your local cycle dealer for a recommendation of tyres for BMX/20in/406 size wheels. We recommend 20in x 1.75in (406mm x 47mm) size. Tires wider than 1.75in (47mm) may not fit and will rub on the frame. The inner tube must be suitable for a 20in x 1.75in (406mm x 47mm) wheel size.

What is different about the Gocycle GS Model and the Gocycle G3?

The Gocycle G3 is higher priced than the GS. The Gocycle GS has a mechanical shifter whereas the G3 has electronic shifting. There are some external cable routings on the Gocycle GS whereas all cables are internal on the G3. The G3 has electronic rotary power and shift controls, and an integrated LED dash board display that shows speed, efficiency, battery state of charge, and gear selection. The G3 comes with an automotive style integrated daytime running light using light pipe technology. The G3 comes in single colours including metalic blue and mat black. G3 also has premium comfort grips, seat, and pedals. The G3 handlebar stem is adjustable in height and reach.

How do I get access to the chain?

It should not be necessary for you to gain access to the chain. It is lubricated, self-tensioning and sealed within the Cleandrive®.

Do I need to adjust the chain?

No.

Do I need to oil the chain?

No.

Can I use Gocycle off road?

Gocycle has been designed as an urban-specific two-wheeler. We do not recommend that you take Gocycle off road; however, riding on smooth gravel bike paths should be fine.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

We strongly recommend you ride with an approved bicycle helmet.

Is there a compact seat post height available and what is the seat height from the ground?

Yes, you can buy a compact seat post. The height from the top of the seat to the ground for the Gocycle S standard seat post in the lowest position is: 880mm or 2' 10.6"; the same with the compact seat post in the lowest position is: 810mm or 2'8". Note that the rear suspension will compress around 1/2 - 1" measured at the saddle when the rider's weight is on the Gocycle.
