The AM1 makes moving effortless, both on and off the bike. The lightweight aluminium frame and compact, maintenance free motor makes carrying as easy as riding it.
The AM1 conforms to the European standards for electric bikes so you don’t need a licence, registration or insurance to ride it on public roads or cycle lanes.
The AM1 battery is smaller than a water bottle. It can assist you for 20 miles or be thrown in a bag until you need it.
First of all, I want to thank Analog Motion for their transparency.
Unlike a lot of other crowdfunded projects, Analog Motion kept their backers in the loop by providing frequent, reliable and informative posts on the progress / state of the project. Personally, I never had doubts about the project or Analog Motion due to the exemplary information policy.
Regarding the bike itself, it perfectly fits my needs.
Assembling: It wasn't a great deal to combine the preassembled parts as most of the components are standard bike components. Thus, there were no surprises putting them together. So everybody who likes to tinker a little bit should have no problems constructing the bike.
Bike: The quality of the bike feels good and I haven't had any problems with it so far. I personally use it to run errands and it never let me down. Battery life is pretty much as described. When I first tried the bike I put some special stress on it trying to climb the steepest hill around. Well, it made it all the way up there - but clearly, this is not the area of application for this particular bike. But this should be expected for everybody as we are talking about a single speed bike here.
Thank you so much and keep up the great work.
The bike fulfills all my expectations. And to be honest I never saw a better assembly instruction. It was really easy to assemble the bike. I already did a few rides and it easy goes much more than the 30km on support level 2 or 3 of 5. I am only missing a short description of the display and the thumb throttle, but maybe I just didn’t found.
So overall perfect, would of course buy it again!
Very stylish e-bike with solid, well fitting quality components, absolutely easy to assemble, even for non-techies!
Riding this bike is pure enjoyment and fun!
My top pick for an e-bike, great value for money!
Received my new awesome ride few days ago..
Easy to assemble (and I am really not talented)
Great first (easy if you like) 10 miles.. more to come
Thanks to the AM Team!
In love with my new pistachio wheels. Easy to assemble and great instructions. Can’t wait to get out and about this summer!!
It's trully mindblowing ! Silent, intuitive, classy ... Whether you look at it from close or far, its quality of fabric is obvious. The throttle is great, allowing you to get out of a slow speed/balance situation with ease, or simply boosting your starts.
As for the battery, it keeps its promises.
Some friends have tried it and fell in love immediatly !
Thanks it's was definetely worth waiting !
The AM1 Step+. Oh my God, did you guys nail it!
The boxing looked promising, tidy, clean, perfect.
I know a little bit about bikes (I drive a race bike and do some maintenance myself) but building the unit was a breeze. The toolkit, the manual, all perfectly clear. The most difficult part was adjusting the disk brakes but after 5 minutes they were perfect. Sun was shining and I felt like a boy building Lego again, except I was building my own bike. I truly enjoyed those 3 hours of building.
And then came the maiden voyage. I cannot start to describe how impressed I am with the power this thing has. Damn! I overtook some race bikes at 35 km/h easily ;-) It’s a speedy thing, this bike.
It’s light, handles well, is comfortable and the extra kick is there when you need it. I absolutely love it.
All my friends and neighbors love the way it looks. That’s a nice extra. It means the design is timeless and classy.
Now that our youngest son is about to start going to school, I don’t have to take him to daycare anymore and I will for sure love biking to work on my AM1.
My only hope is that it will keep performing and prove to be durable and consistent over time. Time will tell.
I hope you guys can make AM to be a great brand. It surely fills a hole in the offerings of e-bikes: not overpriced, shorter-trip and perfect to ride without the any battery power as well.
Keep it up!
Prompt and efficient delivery to begin with. The bikes were packaged securely and there was no damage to the boxes which I liked. I found the email with the assembly instructions really easy to follow and enjoyed the process of building both the AM1 and the AM1 Step. The bikes are finished really well and the colour schemes add to the retro look. The bikes are fun to ride with the power delivery quite exciting. I would definitely recommend this bike if you are in the market for an affordable electric bike that looks as good as it goes.
