GOLBEY, France - Moustache Bikes, a new French company with a design-oriented e-bike range announced the introduction of a 'Ville' (city) and 'VTC' (trekking) series featuring the NuVinci N360 hub. Combined with the Bosch drive system, the brand aims to raise the bar for quality e-bikes in the French market.

As Emmanuel Antonot, owner and creator of Moustache bikes explains: “We aim to move something forward in our society. On the one hand, Moustache wants to remind people of times when the daily ride with the bicycle was the only practical way to handle long distances because there were no cars or only few could afford them. On the other hand, cycling is an aspect of modern lifestyle. Our ambition is to make people use their bikes more often and leave the car in the garage. Therefore we designed bikes which perform this balancing act between retro and high-tech, between fun and comfort. Just ride one of our bikes and you will see that sitting on a bike is more comfortable and more fun than being stuck in traffic.”

Bosch and NuVinci combination
As a result, Moustache Bikes developed the Lundi 26 inch city bike and the Samedi 28-inch trekking bike. Both feature the NuVinci N360 drive train in combination with Bosch mid motor e-bike system. The open frame of the Lundi 26 provides comfort and safety for riders between 1.58 and 1.90 meters. The front headlight is integrated into the head tube, while the high-rise city handlebar offers a natural riding position with a straight back and the best field of vision. The Samedi 28 has a special touring or trekking handlebar that has less rise and more agility for a more sportive position or for longer rides.

Prices
The Moustache bikes are already available in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland at a recommend retail price of € 2.799 (or CHF 3.999). For more information: www moustachebikes.fr.
