For 2018, Vintage Electric is focusing on their Cafe model which is a Class 3 speed pedelec designed for urban riding and commuting. Many of their other models including the original Tracker and Cruz are still going strong with minor tweaks and refinements. The Scrambler is a new off-road capable model with an MRP suspension fork made in Colorado and Schwalbe Black Jack knobby tires. It even has a 20 mm thru-axle up front, more like a traditional motorcycle than other e-bikes I have seen and reviewed. The Tracker has the largest battery capacity with 700 watt hours, in part because it can go faster (the motor peaks around 3,000 watts, and the bike weighs more). It was neat to hear Andrew talk about the Cruz model which has a Maple wood inlay and an Art Deco inspired battery box. By comparison, the Tracker was inspired by wooden track racing motorcycles of years past.

Vintage Electric offers a Race Mode pin that is sold separately from their bikes, which unlocks the higher power and speed for off-road use. By default, their bikes are Class 2 with throttles and a limited 20 mph top speed.

    Keep educating court ????.

    "CLOTHED IN SHADOWS"?

  2. Yeah ridiculously overpriced. Rich boys toys. Let's try to review more bikes that people can't actually afford. Noticed more and more it's all about the highly priced bikes that will be superseded in a year. The whole bike world is developing so fast that to buy a £3000 bike now will result in wasting your money as the following year a better and more suitable bike appears. It's like buying a car every year and to make things harder, the bikes don't tend to hold,their price value to sell on. Frustrating and it's becoming too much of a rich kids toy. Let's get real.

  3. Hi Court-Great bikes , but a bit pricey. Keep your moxie going dude!
    I was hoping you would have stopped by the Haibike, Yamaha, Bulls and Specialized booths as well during your visit at the show. Will you be uploading more videos from any other manufacturers this year? Thanks a lot and have a safe trip back!

  4. Great product. For all the broke, miserable, mad at life losers who think the bike is "overpriced" – maybe it is and maybe it isn't, but that's for the market to decide, not you.
