Electric Beach Cruisers, LLC began in 2014 and after 2+ years of testing prototypes and different designs the BeachFlyer was born. The founder, Cory Shumaker, is a friend of ScholarShop Africa starting roughly the same time the BeachFlyer was released. Electric Beach Cruisers, LLC donates 5% of gross revenues to Scholarshop Africa. I am currently riding the BeachFlyer 2.0 across the country #5000milesfor500scholars!
Meeting the bike in Washington I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Upon arrival I charged up the battery and took off for the 20+ miles to Seattle. I did not know anything about the battery, how to preserve energy, use the throttle, or how to read the monitor. BUT DONT FEAR YOU WONT NEED TO EITHER!!! The BeachFlyer’s design is extremely simple and easy to use. After the first few miles I had it down and was pedaling away with the assist!
I am telling yall, this bike is PHENOMENAL. Extremely easy to manage, use, and affordable. With The 6 PAS (Pedal Assist) settings and 7 gears one can easily ride 20+ MPH. Albeit the battery wont last as long, but thanks to the easy to read battery usage meter one can tell how much input is from pedaling and how much input is coming from the battery.
Along with the bike, Cory, sent me an extra battery of 8AH (AmpHours) twice the size of the original 4AH battery that comes with the model. Depending on the hills (mountains) or flat lands drastically determines how many miles I can ride with the battery. The least amount I have gone with the 4AH battery is 22 and the most is 37. I have learned a few battery saving techniques by using more leg power and muscle strength I try to maximize the mileage from the battery (lower PAS, higher gear). Regarding the 8AH battery I have travelled 45 miles up to 65 miles. I have been on the road for nearly a month and after my stop in LA I picked up a 3rd battery. My last day riding down the coast, April 1st, with 2 batteries I met Cory at 9:50PM. I had a 10PM deadline as he had to fly out to France the next day… 12 hours riding, a flat tire, and an hour to charge the batteries making 14hours on the road I made it 140miles! Recently I went 130miles on all three batteries without stopping to charge!!!
The BeachFlyer 3.0 is coming soon with hydraulic brakes, a bigger battery, and USB charging port in the monitor. As the weather is warming, more sun is shining, and birds are singing, you too can prepare for spring. You will not only be getting excersize and toning them legs, you will be helping the environment by producing less toxins in the air from your vehicle… oh and you will be saving MONEYYYY. If I can go down the Pacific Coast 1200+ miles you can go the 30 miles to work!!
Be on the lookout for the release date of the 3.0!
