City Bike / Electric bike
Price reduced for quick sale - steal at £750
This bike is about 3 years old and is in excellent condition having seen very little use. I know every one says that when selling an electric bike - but nevertheless it is true! This bike cost £1950 new and I bought it a few weeks ago from the man who was the original owner and had been taken ill. I went to his house and it was stored in his garage and in an almost new condition - no marks on the rims, wear on the chain or even dirt on the wheels. He had always maintained the battery.
The battery shows all 5 lights fully charged but I believe it is running at about 80% capacity - which would be expected from a 3 year old battery whether it has been used much or not. It should give many years of service - thousands of this same battery are still running after 8 years. However - even if you are concerned about the battery on a used bike - you could by an additional new one
- having a second is always very useful - this would give an enormous combined range and would still be much cheaper than buying a similar specced bike new.
Replacement batteries are easily obtainable and now would have far greater range the current Panasonic is a huge 18Ah. There is also a German made clone that reviews say is every bit as good and sells for significantly less money.
This what Raleigh say about this bike:
The Leeds Tour is the rugged big brother to the Dover, and is the Raleigh top of the range eBike.
It uses 26" wheels and MTB styling to make it a truly modern and capable eBike. With the center drive motor, 7 speed Shimano hub gears and 12Ah battery, this bike gives the ultimate eBike performance
Electric-bikes have come a long way in the last ten years. The Panasonic crank drive motor has won world-wide approval for its efficiency, reliability, looks and lightweight setup. Driving 250w of brushless power through the bikes own chain means that there literally won?t be a hill too steep to climb anymore. The 26v 12Ah battery only weighs 2.4kgs, yet returns a massive range of between 25 and 50 miles dependent on the mode you are in. Lithium technology means you can quickly recharge the battery at any point. The stunning looks coupled with the quiet operation of the Panasonic system means that if it wasn?t for the amazing performance, nobody would even know you were riding an electric bike!
