Budnitz Bicycles go electric with their new Model E. One of our all-time favorite commuters has up the ante with the integration of a Gates Carbon Belt Drive and an Italian Zehus Bike+ 250W electric rear hub. Unlike most electric bikes where it looks like an electric add-on, this full electric motor is built and designed directly into the drivetrain, maintaining the purity and design integrity of the Budnitz bike. Not only is it electric, it’s touted as the world’s lightest e-bike with a drivetrain that virtually eliminates the need to be plugged in. If you’re lazy and want to completely eliminate peddling, this bike is definitely not for you, but if you need that extra push up the hill or a consistent and relaxing cruising speed, you gotta take note. This all-in-one drivetrain offers an assist up to 15 mph with a range of up to 100 miles. Simply control the hub through your pedals or utilize your smart phone with the integrated bluetooth interface. Similar to all Budnitz bikes, the Model E frame is crafted from 3AL 2.5V titanium alloy, giving you the strength of steel, weight of aluminum and style like no other.
