      "The U4 design speaks for itself with a strikingly minimalist use of round tubing in a modified X-frame...the sleek frame is ultra-lightweight and elegant that you’d never guess it had an electric motor or battery on board,yet rigid, thanks to the use of 7000 series aircraft-grade aluminum..."
      BIKE
      "The Honbike U4 – that has been specifically designed to attract traditional bicycle riders and encourage them to make the switch over to an e-Bike... The highly water-resistant design allows users to clean the bike with a hose directly and you can even store or ride the bike during light showers."
      EbikeTips
      "It is a model of true craftsmanship, thanks to technology and design that offer buyers affordable value, so it is the smart choice for anyone who has ever considered an e-bike but not yet made the move. Ideal for those on a budget, compared to competitors, the Honbike U4 does not compromise on any of the features that e-bike lovers demand and have come to expect."
      IMTEST
      "Honbike setzt beim U4 auf einen Singlespeed-Riemenantrieb vom Hersteller Gates. Dieser soll eine sanfte und leise Fahrt ermöglichen. Da es anders als beim Kettenantrieb dabei keinen Kontakt von Metall auf Metall gibt. In der Praxis bedeutet das auch: Weniger Wartungsaufwand und ein verbesserte Haltbarkeit."
      Bikebiz
      "Thanks to a minimalist frame design, made from 7000 series aircraft-grade aluminium, the Honbike U4 is lightweight but sturdy, for road and gravel cycle paths. It has three operating modes (eco-city-sport) of electrical support that allow riders to tackle different terrain."
      Insideevs
      "The bike, as you can see, has a very straightforward but modern unisex design that makes it great for urban usage and is easily adjustable to perfectly fit any rider. In a nutshell, the U4 is an e-bike that resembles a classic bicycle, but with a modern twist that emphasizes usability."

      From worries to confidence with one telephone call.

      The day after the introduction, I ordered (and paid for) a U4. I got a confirmation email, but after that it has been silent. It would have been nice to receive some info from Honbike, to create some kind of relationship and create confidence that I will receive the bike late this month. Just to give you the perspective from your customer: I order a bike from a picture. No chance to try it or see it. There is no contact in my country or even in Europe. The company Honbike (is that the name of the company?) is not more than a website and some email-adresses to me. I have paid the full amount and just have to trust that one day I will get a bike delivered. Also there is no review on the Internet yet. Probably the magazines, influencers etc also don’t have a bike.
      I saw that you have introduced some accessories for the U4. That was a nice opportunity to send all customers with a pending order an email with that news. Just to keep an anxious customer informed. But better would of course be an estimated delivery date. Something better than “late August”.
      Anyhow, I’m still anxious to see the bike and try it.

      Edit: Today I got a telephone call from a Dutch sales rep. He explained that Honbike is commercially still in a start-up phase. Although they have much experience in OEM manufacturing, they have to set-up the sales channels en marketing for this brand. He confirmed that they expect to receive the first container with U4’s next week, so delivery last week of August is still the planning. That gives a lot of confidence. I will be patient and give a first impression when I receive the bike.

      Denkfehler!

      Der Sattel ist natürlich NICHT versetzt.
      Man sieht es auf den bisherigen Bildern tatsächlich schlecht, aber das Querrohr läuft leicht mit Sicherheit schräg nach links nach vorne raus, bzw. ist so gewinkelt montiert / verschweisst, daß beide Räder in einer Flucht stehen. Wäre dem nicht so, wäre das Vorderrad ja auch versetzt zum Hinterrad und das Fahrrad wäre gar nicht fahrtauglich!
      Man sitzt also ganz bestimmt genau mittig zur Position beider Räder.
      ODER alle am Projekt Beteiligten waren durchgehend stark besoffen, das kann natürlich auch sein. ;-)

      Versetzter Sattel?

      Äähhmm, sieht schön aus, aber der Sattel ist durch das Rahmendesign ja nicht in einer Linie mit dem Vorbau! Dürfte so 5-6 cm versetzt sein, das muss man doch deutlich merken beim fahren ?!?!
