    Funster was on site with these bikes. They look well made and we are thinking of getting them.
    Full size wheels and we would get the 60-80kms batteries!

    Any comments please?

    We have 2 both a couple of years old now
    Distance depends on how much you use the battery power, we only use ours when the going gets tough on hills etc.
    We've had a couple of others before these and find the Wayscral a great improvement.
    Best thing is to try different ones before you buy

    We bought two from norauto when we were last over , I've put quite a bit about them in other threads on here, in a word fantastic, don't know how long they will last but I have now done over fifty miles on mine with the original charge and one more, they seem heavy when you first try them but they ride as well as any bike I've ever had without the the power and when you switch it on they fly.
    This is the when we had just bought them. image.jpg

    Forgot to add, we got these half price because they are last years models, £500 for the two, if you can find a norauto that still have some left, grab yourself a bargain(y)

    Steph yes, but you also? See you later this week.

    Actually maybe a good idea we can all go riding up into Espuna together. We want to try our new CX bikes on the mountain roads.

    Thought that was a typing error :whistle: Not the most imaginative name ? I do like the front wheel drive as it would fold more compact but not low step through.

    Just looked at their site they are only the price of normal bike so you are not going to get much in the way of quality, most are front hub drive the least efficent type of drive and worst performance on hills. One model appeared to have a crank drive of undisclosed brand.

    May be OK if you just want to potter a mile to the shops, if you want to go cycling don't wast your money, spend a few more pennies and get a bike with a Bosch crank drive you will be able go get up the steepest hills and have double the range.

    Range at 60-80kms is far enough for us!

    There is a couple of hills near here that most ordinary cyclists get off and push , I can go up them without hardly pedalling on this electric bike(y)

    Having seen them they appear to be VERY well made!
    At €900 Inc battery bosch are almost twice the price and more!
    The Waysral at €900 that is.
