It’s been out for a while now and the special edition BionX kit has been making a lot of people smile. I had the pleasure of handing over one especially beautiful electric bike conversion of a Marin road bike just a few days ago. Figured you might like it too in this quick post on a BionX road bike… Check it out:
The Marin BionX bike was particularly intriguing to me as a BionX road bike. Aside from my Brompton, my main bicycle is an old Univega road bike that I’ve updated and made into a pretty formidable commuter/road bike. I appreciate the efficiency and speed of road bikes and find them to be excellently suited to commuting. When you add on top of that a powerful BionX electric bike kit, you get a real work horse that can get you to the job and back again on a daily basis.
This particular BionX road bike has a few really nice qualities.
First off, it’s a Marin, a brand known for quality manufacturing and great parts. This means the frame is sturdy and will last many miles of motorized bicycling. Secondly, it has a 48V BionX PL350HT SL XL kit on board, making it one of the most technologically advanced road bikes out there. Forget about electronic shifting (Shimano Di2) this bike has electronic movement built right in. I can only drool over the thought of taking this BionX road bike out for a nice long weekend ride.
If you’ve been thinking of converting one of your bikes with a BionX electric bike kit consider making it a BionX road bike. It’s one configuration that doesn’t get much press or hype, but it is absolutely one of the best types of bikes to electrify.
