Giant Electric Bikes have been woven into the 50cycles story from the start. The first electric bike one of the founders ever laid eyes on was a Giant Lafree spotted on a London street around 2000, which sparked the first investigations into what they are and what they can do. The Lafree was one of the first crank drive bikes and was popular for a time thanks to its Panasonic centre motor, rugged reliability and hill-climbing power. However, after Lafree production ceased and their availability dwindled, the gap in the market was quickly filled by 50cycles Kalkhoff range. Many of our customers had a Giant Lafree as their first electric bike.
We couldn't ignore this season's developments though. The latest generation Giant electric bikes are superb, bringing back a new, more powerful Yamaha centre motor, integrated batteries and must-have designs.
