HeyBike has built a name for itself over the last year or two with a growing number of low-cost electric bikes.
HeyBike Cityrun Tech Specs • Motor: 500W geared rear hub motor • Top speed: 20 mph (32 km/h) • Range: 30-55 miles (48-88 km) • Battery: 48V 15Ah (720 Wh) • Weight: 62 lb (28 kg) • Weight capacity: 350 lb. (159 kg)
HeyBike Cityrun Tech Specs (Cont'd) • Tires: 26 x 2.5″ • Brakes: 180 mm rotor disc brakes • Extras: LCD display, LED lighting with automatic headlight and turn signals, strong rear rack, Shimano 7-speed drivetrain, included fenders, app compatibility • Price: $1,299 on Amazon or also $1,299 on HeyBike’s site
You may be surprised by just what you get from the HeyBike Cityrun. It doesn’t come with the name recognition of other famous city e-bikes, but it has some pretty darn nice features for the price.
Components like hydraulic disc brakes, turn signals, hydraulic suspension, and a sturdy rear rack add value to the bike by offering features normally reserved for higher-dollar e-bikes or held back as add-on accessories by other brands.
