BH Neo Racer

Postby rider007 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 2:11 pm

Hi,

Few days ago I've discovered about company BH (from Spain) and their bikes. Apparently, their new range of e-bikes won European best electric bike of 2011. I've never owned an e-bike before, but those from BH looks damn nice :)

In particular I'm interested in Neo Race http://www.bhbikes.com/web/en/easy-motion-ebikes/road/neo-road/neo-race.html, mostly because it doesn't have front suspension and disc brakes, which means less weight etc.

Did anyone heard or tried them before? I'm trying to locate who sells them in Sydney as I want to try before I commit ~$2.6k.

I've also found about Commuter Booster while browsing this thread, would be an interesting alternative as I could probably install in on my Kona Dew Deluxe hybrid, just not sure if I have enough brains for such a project.

Have a nice day.

I believe JetBlack is the sole importer of BH bikes in Austraila.

Please refer to below link for the list of dealers:

I am interested in this bike too, please post some review once tried.

It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Thanks. I had found that and there really quite good BH forum as well. Whilst I quite like these and even more so the Carbon I do have concerns over the sizing. It seems that BH only make these in one size medium. Now according to their website I should fit a medium at 177/178 cm but what I can find in a way of a geometry chart does not compute with my existing bikes.

I cannot ride for another two to three weeks so will have to wait till then to find out for sure. At least the local bike shop selling these allows for a decent test ride apparently.

The other niggle is I suspect that they don't have braze-ons for water bottles going by the photos I have seen. I did look at one at Canning Bridge Cycles but cannot recall seeing any braze-ons. Hopefully I have that wrong.
