What if I Just Want to Ride the Pavement?
Simple and Easy E-bike Riding with Magicycle Commuter
Sometimes an e-bike shopper simply wants a bike that’s easy to ride an uncomplicated to maintain. Really, that’s all you need if you know you’ll be riding on pavement most of the time. That can make good sense for many city-dwellers who almost never go off-road.
The popularity of biking is growing at a truly astounding rate. In Southern California, for example, there has been an increase in biking of more than 300% since the year 2000. On the other side of the US, New York experienced very significant growth in the number of bikers in just five years — 80%! Other locations are seeing rapid growth in a similar manner, and can you guess what segment of the bicycle market is experiencing the fastest increase in sales? If you guessed e-bikes, give yourself a big pat on the back!
Do Your Part toward Cleaner Air
Most cars put out about 99% more pollution than any e-bike can possibly create. If you commute, and want to do the environment a huge favor, park your car and do your commuting on an e-bike. If you ride your e-bike as little as 5 miles per day on average (instead of using your car), that will cut your carbon footprint more than you realize. In fact, it amounts to a whopping 5 percent.
De-stress Your Life
In many cities, daily commuting means daily frustration and daily delays that only compound the frustration. All that traffic adds up to stress levels that are definitely not recommended by your doctor. E-biking could well be the best way to avoid all that stress.
If you’re commuting on an e-bike, there’s a very good chance that you can sail right through or around even the worst of the traffic jams. Snarled traffic that might cost you a 20 minutes delay in an automobile can be navigated with almost no delay on an e-bike. An e-bike also comes in very handy if you have to turn around and take an alternate route. Ever try a u-turn in the midst of a traffic jam? You’ll be very glad you’re on an e-bike.
Convenient Traffic Navigation
The ability of your automobile to reach 100 mph means nothing in heavy traffic. If your commute involves urban or city traffic, you may be much better off on your e-bike. That kind of traffic moves very slowly, and e-bike commuters can frequently move along at a faster pace than the cars and trucks.
Another bonus…f you’re making a quick stop along the way, you’ll save a lot of time parking. You can just imagine how much easier and quicker it is to park an e-bike as compared to any size automobile. You likely won’t have any significant breakdown delays, either. But when your car or truck has a breakdown, it could delay you an hour or more.
A Quality Choice for Your Commute
It has been said that any e-bike will do for commuting. That may be true for some riders, but it depends on the location and circumstances involved in the commute. Yes, you can commute on a big fat tire e-bike or even on a folding e-bike, but these are not always the best choices. There are some advantages to using an e-bike that is dedicated primarily to commuting. Also, an e-bike that is very simple to operate and easy to maintain can offer advantages…especially to anyone new to e-biking.
Commuting to your workplace on an e-bike is a great idea. Doing it on an e-bike from an unreliable brand is a terrible idea. The last thing a commuter wants to experience is frequent malfunctions making you late to work. Quality is a key factor when considering the purchase of any e-bike, and particularly if you plan to commute on it. After all, when you leave your home and head for your workplace, you want to feel confident that your e-bike will get you there. Fortunately, there are a few brands such as MAGiCYCLE have a serious emphasis on quality control.
Confidence in Your E-bike’s Quality
When it comes to finding the right e-bike, nothing is more important than build quality. For your own peace of mind, quality must come ahead of other concerns, such as power or curb appeal. For your personal safety and the value of your investment, the e-bike you purchase must be characterized by good quality from taillight to headlight. The frame, the drivetrain, motor, brakes, battery, display…everything! Quality should be job one for every e-bike brand, and nobody does that better than Magicycle Inc.
Wade Wei, the founder of Magicycle, has been designing and building e-bikes for a very long time. His credentials include some prestigious “best design” awards. Indeed, Magicycle has a heritage of award-winning designs, and that doesn’t happen accidentally. It takes careful attention to details and quality. The Magicycle company, from its very first e-bike, has chosen to focus on quality control. Many e-bike brands fail in this very important aspect of manufacturing e-bikes.
Magicycle Emphasizes Quality Control
It’s very tempting for any e-bike brand to skimp on quality. Lesser quality means it cost less to manufacture the e-bike. Lower manufacturing cost translates into higher profits. In fact, many e-bike brands simply cannot provide good quality control for their customers. Why not? It’s very simple — it’s because they do not own a factory. How can any company expect to have effective quality control if they don’t even own the factory that manufactures their e-bike?
Truthfully, the e-bike isn’t really their product. It’s just an e-bike mass produced by some factory and sold to several different brands. Each of these brands then attaches a brand label to the e-bike and call it “their e-bike.”
That is not the way Magicycle operates. This is certainly not just an average e-bike company. Magicycle actually owns the factory, and that factory has been producing quality e-bikes for more than 16 years. Every Magicycle begins with the award-winning Magicycle Design Team, originators of the amazing frame design that makes their e-bikes both visually appealing and reliably strong.
Every aspect of a MAGiCYCLE e-bike exudes quality. For example, you will never find any cheap steel in a Magicycle frame. Magicycle has chosen to use 6061 aluminum alloy. This top quality alloy provides exceptional strength, corrosion resistance, light weight, durability, and a defect-free highly pleasing appearance. All this is made possible by employing technology borrowed from the aviation industry. The Magicycle factory uses experts in hydroforming and cataphracted weld joints…regarded as the best welding technique in the world.
This means that Magicycle customers receive a high-tech frame that is strong, safe, and beautiful for unequaled riding stability and comfort. Does this attention to quality create an increase in manufacturing costs? Yes, of course, but it also provides MAGiCYCLE riders with an e-bike that is safe, comfortable, long-lasting, and equipped with reliable brand name components.
Be Sure Your E-bike Brand Owns the Factory
Magicycle has exemplary quality control over the entire bike-building process, from design to manufacture to shipping. When a Magicycle is delivered to a new owner, the box contains an e-bike that will last a very long time, giving reliable service and a safe riding experience. Quality matters — don’t settle for an e-bike from a brand that does not own the factory.
Quality Extends to the Components
Because they control every aspect of design and manufacturing, Magicycle gets to very carefully select the components. Only well-known brand names are invited to supply motors, batteries, LCD displays, brakes, etc. For example, an unusually powerful battery comes on every Magicycle. Only high-quality components go onto a Magicycle! That’s a big factor in the confidence Magicycle owners have in their e-bike.
The best quality at the best price is a Magicycle priority. And, of course, this includes the e-bike that Magicycle designed especially for commuting. Not only is it extremely good looking, this beautiful e-bike also offers many advantages for commuters and other pavement riders.
Light As a Feather
Well, maybe not light as a feather, but very light for an e-bike. This racy beauty weighs in at a mere 56 pounds. In an e-bike world populated with a plethora of 70+ pound e-bikes, 56 pounds is greeted with cheers. Many e-bikers look forward to easier mounting on bike racks for transportation, as well as much less effort in lugging it up a flight of steps. But don’t be fooled by the lighter weight — it’s still a very sturdy ride and brings a very generous payload of 265 pounds–and this bike has the power to handle the payload.
The Magicycle Commuter features a 350 watt hub motor driven by a 52 volt battery, a combination that delivers outstanding power while retaining a lighter weight. It’s more than enough for this light-weight commuter, and it definitely lives up to the MAGiCYCLE reputation for superior power.
Beautifully Streamlined for Ownership Safety
When you look this commuter e-bike, at first you may not even realize it is an e-bike. The powerful battery is very nicely hidden within the bike frame, making it much less obvious that it is an e-bike. Many bike thieves are highly interested in stealing e-bikes, so a stealthy appearance is very helpful. Of course, it is still necessary to keep the Commuter securely locked whenever the rider is away.

Let’s Keep it Simple
E-bikes are for nearly everyone! Even if you are physically challenged with aching joints or limited range of motion, there’s a good possibility you can enjoy riding an e-bike. If you are new to cycling, or even if you have years of experience, everyone can appreciate the simplicity and quick learning curve of riding a Magicycle Lightweight Commuter.
Commuters and many other e-bike riders are all about the ease of use and maintenance. This Magicycle Commuter is a no-throttle, no-shifter, super simple ride. That makes operation of the e-bike very easy, and it also eliminates two potential maintenance items — you’ll never have to replace a throttle or a shifter. And to make it even better, the drive chain isn’t a chain…it’s a belt. Again, that’s much easier to maintain, with no lubricant needed. Plus, a belt drive is very, very quiet! If you enjoy cruising down the street in near silence, check out the Magicycle Commuter.
