The Electra Bali Cruiser Go! Step-Thru is an affordable lightweight cruiser electric bike with special edition Artist Series tropical design. priced to compete with online ebikes but offers dealer assembly, fitting, post-purchase support, and comes in two frame styles and eight color scheme options! The step-thru is a small-medium with 26″ tires and the high-step is a medium-large with 27.5″ tires. This is a Class 1 ebike with three levels of torque and cadence sensing pedal assist, a minimalist control pad that is easy to use, very clean cable routing, and a reliable single speed drivetrain with no shifters. The Bali and Shibori come with fenders, integrated lights, and a bell, but you can also add them to the standard Cruiser Go! along with cargo racks and a bottle cage. Large 180mm mechanical disc brakes provide good stopping power, wide 2.35″ tires provide comfort and stability, extra-wide saddle with elastomer bumpers and swept-back handlebar provide a relaxed body position. Unique “Flat Foot” frame geometry makes it easy to touch the ground when stopped while still providing good leg extension for pedaling. Excellent weight distribution with downtube integrated battery pack. The battery and motor are so hidden and quiet that it hardly looks or sounds like an ebike! Lower than average 250wh battery capacity and 250 watt motor pair nicely for an efficient riding and keep the overall weight and price low. Tires seem kind of basic with no puncture protection or reflectivity.
