A2B Galvani Video Review
Very much like the suspension. It is too bad the bike does not come in a low step for seniors with balance or other disorders. I wonder if the lights on this bike are throw away due to being dim. My personal choice is to put my own lights on the bike and have it independent from the main battery. I like that the aftermarket lamps as they easily come off for security reasons.
i’m surprised a2b didn’t go out of business yet.
this bike is a good bike, like many of hte other bikes in its class. a2b is phasing out it’s signature line of tank frames that basically defined their brand.
there is peak saturation in the ebike market for the time being. a lot of brands competing more or less at a few established levels of performance.
a2b was really EARLY into the game 4/5 years ago but now, it’s like they realized they’ve been left in the dust and are changing their whole thing up.
I prefer the look of this over the other A2B bikes as it does not look like a heavy tank. It is also a surprising good value with the hydraulic brakes, fenders, display and Ergon grips. I did not see you mention the all important water bottle. How do they overlook this when they design these things?
Further to my last entry 9 months ago: I still love this bike BUT the weight plus me on it (and I am not overweight) has now snapped 6 rear spokes. It took my local supplier 4 weeks to get replacements from Germany. So not good. And in case you’re wondering – all these went on the road, not on my off road escapades.
Hi, just wanted to say thank you for the brilliant and very comprehensive reviews. I am researching my next e-bike ride and I really appreciate your work. it is a big help. Cheers from Oz.
Nice review. Are you in California? thanks.
no throttle? i thought all electric bikes had throttles, something i thought would be included being that their lower priced bikes such as the "KUO" has one
*THAT’S* an "A2B"?!?! They’re looking *much* different from the "A2B Metro" style that the company used to have! I like them now! However, you can’t add an ‘extra’ battery to it like you used to be able to, can you? Still, I like the change in design!
Terrible product. I bought this bike. Don’t be fooled. Looks great but mine is very problem riddled . The N.American tech mgr not interested in customer satisfaction. They admit the problem "unfortunately , the Galvani does do an abrupt power cut off" . This spoils a good ride. Not safe. I have only 300 miles on this pile of junk. battery replaced at 100 miles due to over heating and partial melting. Local shop was great but limited in being able to refund or replace. No manufacturer support. Keep shopping
I bought one of these in the depths of a British winter (yes, rather silly) but could not keep off it despite the cold and wet. I live in the Cotswolds, an area full of steep muddy hills and generally not ‘cycling friendly’ for an ageing rather unfit person like me. The bike can also perform off road surprisingly well, and I have enjoyed contravening various local bye laws by tearing along through the woods and down various tracks. The bike is very heavy though, and can’t be carried far.
