Mycle is a modern electric bike … but comes with a vintage style
This is the Mycle Classic – a very modern take on the classic shopper bike. But don’t be fooled by the proven design, the go-anywhere frame is home to smart new technology. Designed by electric bike company Mycle, the new model combines a 250W motor with seven speeds to give you a boost when you need it.
If you prefer to tackle the roads at your own pace, with the push of a button, you can switch from pedal assist to manual driving. A built-in screen will show your latest race stats, including which of the five available power settings you are using at that time. Mycle also includes a USB port so you can charge your smartphone while you’re on the go. This means you should never get to your destination without less than 100% in the tank, even if you rely on your smartphone for detailed navigation.
The e-bike has a 9.6 Ah lithium-ion cell that can travel up to 50 km (approximately 30 miles) on a single charge. When you run out of juice, you need to remove the locking seat post – which hides the battery slot – and plug it in to recharge. Mycle says it will only take four hours to charge this battery to full capacity.
Modern, smart fixtures and fittings aside – smartphone charges, LCD displays with stats of your last ride, battery-powered top speeds of 15.5mph – the Mycle Classic doesn’t lack any of the iconic bike’s attributes. shopper. So you will find a vintage-style basket, a rear rack, a kickstand, leather handles and an ergonomic shock-absorbing leather saddle.
The Mycle Classic is available for £ 999 at mycle.co.uk in three stylish colors, City White, Mustard Yellow and Hackney Blue.
With free standard delivery on all new bikes, the complete Mycle range is built and tested in the UK by trained Cytech cycling technicians.

Perfect for relaxed morning walks and picnics in the park, it pursues our goal of making sustainable travel accessible and fun for everyone.
