We are excited to announce that we now have the EG Monte Carlo 500 EX electric bike in stock. Sporting a 48V 500W electric motor, incredible handlebar info center, and a 25 mile range, the Monte Carlo is EG's top of the line electric bike to date. When taking this cruiser for a test ride, the first thing we noticed was its power. It went up hills with ease, it flew on level roads, and reached its 20 mph limit very quickly.
Our initial concern with this fast bike was its ability to stop quickly. The Monte Carlo's front and rear hydraulic disc brakes do an exceptional job at stopping this bike.
If there were any draw backs to this bike, it would definitely be its weight. If you live in a city and do have adequate indoor storage space, this bike may not be for you. It weighs 60 lbs (with the battery), so bringing this bike up stairs could be challenging. A good alternative would be the Vienna 250 EX folding bike or either the Milan and Bali 350 EX models.
