to conventional controls such as the six-speed Shimano Tourney shifter and the front-brake lever, the right-hand side of the handlebar also features a “thumb throttle” to control the electric motor. On the left-hand side of the bar, a TFT screen displays information relayed through your smartphone and also serves as the rider interface.
a 36-V 13.4-ah removable lithium-ion battery powers a 250-W hub motor attached to the rear wheel. The motor supplements pedal power with three pedal-assist modes. If you feel particularly lazy, you can always switch off the pedal-assist and rely solely on the motor to power the bicycle. There is also a walk-assist mode; in case you want to push your bicycle, you know. Perhaps, when you have a punctured tyre or if you want to walk your date back home.
I spent a fair amount of time being blown away by the sheer convenience of the One that I almost forgot about the “tbike” smartphone app. It tracks your daily ride pattern and also allows you to set fitness goals for yourself. Some of the crucial information like calories burnt is displayed on the TFT screen along with a speedometer, an odometer, and a clock.
Suspension at the front is managed by a Zoom Masera fork that offers 80 millimetres of travel. Stopping power comes from V brakes at the front and a disc at the rear which worked well during my rides within the city. However, if you want quicker stopping time, you can upgrade to a disc at the front for some extra moolah.
