Want something a bit left-field? Moustache are good at that, as one look at their Philippe Starck collaborations will attest. And now they're offering the world a Bosch-powered electric mountain bike tandem, the Samedi 27x2. For which we're sure the world will be very grateful indeed.
What's particularly notable about this bike is that it's the first time we've seen a Bosch dual battery system out in the real world (not that we've seen the tandem in the flesh yet). The new configuration makes bigger battery capacities a possibility, and obvioulsy that's a good thing on a tandem. The Samedi 27x2 uses two 500Wh batteries for maximum range.
The bike features a SRAM 11-speed drivetrain and a Rockshox Yari fork up front, and Moustache have gone for the popular 27.5+ wheel size with 2.8" Maxxis tyres. The timing chain between the two sets of cranks is on the same side as the drive chain, as opposed to where it would normally be on the opposite side. That's presumably down to the limitations of what's possible with the Bosch motor.
The Samedi 27x2 will retail for €5,999. We don't know when it will be available, but we'll keep you posted!
