After a lot of thinking about do I want 2 ebike‘s I have gone ahead & ordered a moustache Dimanche 28.1 hybrid.
I picked this bike for the new bosch active line plus & 500wh battery as I’m a abit put off with the fazua & Ebikemotion for my own reasons.
At 17kg it weighs the same as my carbon domane + which I love, i have sold all my old bikes so time for a treat as I’m getting a good discount as well.

Nice.

The Bosch Active Line Plus motor will have more poke than either of the other two systems you mention.

Moustache have some unusual design features - the motor on your bike is 'upside down', probably to hide it more effectively behind the front ring.

Speaking of which, a single front ring and an 11-34 cassette might give a too limited range of gears for some, but no doubt you've considered that.

agree on the gear range - thats what my cube acid had and on big climbs was still a pitta. swapped out the 11-34 for a 11-40 still using the same mech and adding a few links to the chain...its now golden

and i'm no lightweight

I did wonder about cassette but thought I would try it & as jowwy said change to a 40t.
I like the thought of no resistance when over 15mph & a quieter motor
Which then when I overtake the pro’s up the hills they won’t here me😂.

After my first couple of rides I’m finding it’s very different to my trek, I’m nearly running out of gears by the time I hit 15mph so it hss very close ratio’s from 2nd to 7th cog on cassette.
Not tried a steep hill yet to try out the 34 cog, think it will be a different style of riding using the gears.
I did a back to back 8 mile run & there was only a 0.5 mph difference favouring the trek which I would expect.
It feels a nice bike to ride & that motor is quiet😀, will get a few hundred miles on it then maybe look at changing cassette if that’s what it needs.

My bike buddy bought a Moustache yesterday. The road bike 28.5, possibly.

He left me in the weeds on the 1 longish climb and one nasty one but apart from that, he was still chasing me a fair bit. I had a test ride on it yesterday too. Rather fun and whizzing up a hill at 15 mph was fun. I did have to work for it but that motor made so much difference.
