The Tesla of Bikes: Test Riding Bosch’s $5,500 eBike
In anticipation of a pedal-powered boom, Bosch, makers of everything from refrigerators to spark plugs, is introducing its electric bicycles to the U.S. market.
The bosch drive can be found on the Cube, LaPierre, Haibike, Felt Electric, and Xtrabike electric bikes. And in 2016, it may be offered by Cannondale, Trek, and Scott. Riding an eBike around Manhattan, I couldn’t help but notice the extra kick provided by the electric motor. It felt as if someone came up behind me and gave me a push. The controls were dead simple to use, too: two buttons on a left controller let me increase or decrease the amount of power being delivered to the drivetrain.by
