This bike was sold by us in November 2014 to a customer who has looked after it well and used it regularly. He has now traded it in for a new Shetland folding bike.The Hawk is being sold with the original battery which now delivers 7.5Ah. Hence the price £495. The bike is fitted with a 15 mph “Twist and Go” throttle which was legal at that time.
The electrics all work properly with 3 levels or pedal assist and the electric brake levers operating as designed. The Hawk has a front disc brake and rear Vee brake, 7 gears run through a Shimano Tourney derailleur operated by Shimano SIS Index system. The bottom gear on the derailleur is a “crawler” gear designed to get you up the steepest of hills.
The bike has front suspension forks, lights, full length polycarbonate mudguards: full chainguard
Paintwork is in reasonable condition with a few signs of rust -mainly on bolt heads.
The FreeGo Hawks are well built and robust machines. Spare parts are also still available. In the event that the battery fails in 2 or 3 years, these can now be rebuilt with new cells and battery management system (BMS) fitted. The bike has a comfortable sitting up riding position
