Dave lives at the top of a big hill and his office is at the bottom, so he's all in favour of a helping hand. Plus, e-bikes are fun! He's the editor of ebiketips and one of the founders of EBT's road cycling sister site, road.cc. He used to work on Cycling Plus and What Mountain Bike back in the day, and he's a former mountain bike bog snorkelling World Champion. Really.

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?
