The new Gazelle Avenue is the latest commuter from the Dutch brand founded in 1892. While the brand is old, this new commuter e-bike is thoroughly modern, offering a solid parts spec for its reasonable $2,899 asking price. Features like hydraulic Magura rim brakes, fork and seatpost suspension, and a lightweight alloy frame pair with the Shimano STEPS motor should provide solid performance where it matters.
The Avenue’s step-thru design and 26″ wheels keeps the center of gravity low and handling nimble, yet stable. Cables and wires are hidden inside the downtube for a clean bike, and full fenders front and rear for a clean you.
Full coverage chain guard keeps your pants clean, too. Other features include flat-resistant Schwalbe Marathon tires, and integrated AXA rear wheel lock and…
…integrated rear rack, front basket, plus front and tail lights.
Keep tabs on battery life, speed and distance from the computer.
