Smartmotion E-City


What it's made for:
The eCity from New Zealand manufacturer Smartmotion is meant to set the bar for entry-level electric comfort bikes, giving riders everything they need to enjoy all the benefits of an electric bike without the budget-stretching features many other models employ. Smartmotion strikes a compelling balance between budget and power with this rear-hub driven steed, providing riders who don't have major hills to climb or extensive distances to cover a great way to get onto an electric bike. They then go on to provide a build kit that packs punch way above its price-class with full-wrap fenders, a high-capacity rear rack, and integrated lights. Simply put, the eCity is the electric commuter for the working kiwi.

Why we love it:
The eCity has come to define the term "electric bike" for many New Zealanders, and for good reason, they are an amazingly ubiquitous sight on many streets. These guys know what it takes to ride in this hilly, windy country and know how to make a bike that both fits budgets and gets riders home smiling. In particular, we love how comfortable the eCity is to ride. With an ultra-upright posture and adjustable stem it's able to pull off the bucket-style seats and wide view of the road most bikes can only dream of. It's a sensible bike for sensible people, what's not to love?

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
