no, the battery can be removed and replaced, but you need to remove the bottom bracket so it's not a 2-minute job.

The cowboy looks good, although probably for somewhere flatter than Bath, singlespeeds tend to struggle a bit here!

Thanks for the write-up. You are right that for some people the inconspicuous look is preferable to one with a bulging battery stuck on the frame both for aesthetic and security reasons. I would add that not everyone riding in the city needs the extended range offered by full-size batteries, whereas everyone will appreciate the lower weight!

Now if you could only comment on a similar bike, the Cowboy (cowboy.bike)... It is single-gear but really light for an e-bike (16 kg) and costs a third less than this one.

BTW does the non-removable battery of the Ampler mean it cannot be replaced at the end of its life?
