2011 A2B Metro Electric Bike Review



http://www.nycewheels.com/a2b-electric-motorbike1.html

The new 2011 A2B Metro is one cool electric bike. The new model has a bunch of features that really push it right over the top, including: a LCD dash panel, regenerative braking, and an improved motor design that is less sensitive to heat. The new A2B Metro is the perfect electric bike for cruising without pedaling.

    Yup there is motor resistance with my A2B Metro e-bike turned on and pedaling without throttle. Turn the key to off position and it gets way easier to pedal. Just tried the new A2B Shima and Alva+ last weekend, they feel a lot lighter and bicycle-like compared to the Metro. Metro's a tank of an e-bike with full suspension though. 🙂

    It's a bit ironic because Peter is actually a stickler for getting everyone in the shop to use their helmets when they ride.

    @stephreyn73 …You're correct, this type of direct drive motor is 'gearless' plus when magnets/coils r not energized there's no resistance at all! 🙂 So, it's not yr imagination!… Test by jacking up the rear wheel and crank it by hand with and w/out electricity… you'll be amazed by the difference!
    I always like 2 pedal my (heavy) 'Metro' (key to zero) on level ground… good exercise +the range increases accordingly! :-0) — On flat ground it really pedals as easy as my regular Mtn.Bike!

    I can't really make much of an assessment for your bike via Youtube comments, but I'm glad the bike has been so good for you!

    I own an a2b velociti and really love it. I've ridden bikes my whole life untill a few years ago when I had a pretty bad knee injury and just couldn't really pedal a bike efficiently enough. Without my a2b there is no way I'd be doing 30 mile rides let alone riding at all. It is difficult to pedal for me without assistance, and it seems to have resistance if I pedal with the battery on but no throttle, seems easier if the battery is off, is there a reason for that? cool vid thanks!

    Here in New York that comes out to a couple of years of taking the subway, and your A2B will certainly outlast that! Plus, you'll have a lot more fun riding.

    Actually, many people love the fact that the interface is simple, while being able to display all relevant data efficiently.

    This is stupid. He's amazed because of an odometer, which from what I see lacks lots of features.

    Does the 2011 Metro really have regenerative braking? I don't see it mentioned in the specs or manuals and only heard it mentioned as a feature in your video.

    There is a lot of different ways one could go with chain ring sizes. If you don't already have the bike, I'd suggest riding it for a while as-is before looking into those kinds of mods though. Also, we do not perform those customizations at our shop, you'd have to go through a local bike shop.

    Curious, if one were to upgrade to a larger chain ring for a bit more pedaling speed, which one would be suggested for this particular e-bike?

    That's awesome! Yeah, the auxiliary battery situation on the A2B is very clever and handy.

    Around 12.5 – 13km on a charge. Will vary though, depending on terrain, weight carried, and how much you pedal. Best- Jack

    Federal laws allow E-bikes as long as they keep under a certain speed, wattage, etc… New York state laws are trying to crack down on e-scooters mostly, I've never had any trouble riding e-bikes in the city. – jack
