Best Electric Bike In The World: Modmo's

by: Joyce Mahler
best electric bike in the world  modmo s | Upload

Modmo was founded by 23-year-old Irishman Jack O’Sullivan. Jack got his start in the bike industry at age 16 with his first bike brand ‘Vital Fixies.’ After four years, Jack began working on Modmo.

Modmo’s Vision

We set out to create an electric bike that would replace your car. To do this, we addressed three core issues we saw with traditional bikes - sweat, theft, and utility.

Modmo’s: Best Bike In The World, Best Factory

We knew, to make the best bike in the world, we would have to start by finding the best factory in the world.

After an Asian sourcing trip leads Jack to Vietnam, a partnership was formed with a state-of-the-art motorbike factory in Ho Chi Minh City. Here, we design, develop, and manufacture our bikes to quality never before seen in the electric bike industry.

Modmo's Saigon Electric Bike Is A Stealthy, Modular Design

Modmo's new Saigon electric bike is an odd take on the electric commuter road bike, but one we think might work well. With a front hub motor, a modular snap-on/snap-off accessory system, and a claimed 124-mile range, it looks like a tidy little package.

Perhaps the frame is an excellent place to start. Made from 6061 aluminum, it's slim, attractive, and pretty darn stealthy for an electric bike. The removable battery, all 18.5 Ah / 666 Wh of it, fits in the cylindrical downtube and does a remarkable job of not looking like a battery at all, and both the crank and the rear hub look oddly clean for an electric bike.

That'll be because the Saigon runs its hub motor on the front wheel; the crank only needs torque and cadence sensors for this system to work just fine. Still, the back end is kept super tidy with a Gates carbon belt drive. If you want gears, you can have them with the addition of an internally geared hub at the rear, a Shimano Nexus system.

Modmo: Front And Rear Views

Brakes are Tektro hydraulics, and the hoops are WTB Horizons, a light off-road tire that looks like it won't offer too much-rolling resistance on the pavement. There's no suspension, so a bit of tire thickness here will at least do something for the ol' backside. There's a nicely designed shortie front fender, which is handy, and lighting is integrated front and rear, with the excellent addition of electro-luminescent painted parts that act as turn signals.

The frame has modular mount points on the front and rear that can accept a range of click-in accessories; baskets, kid seats, racks, boxes, and whatnot. You can also use the front mount point to accept your charger if you don't want to pull the battery out.

Tech-wise, it rocks a GPS with its 4G data connection for location tracking and security. There are motion sensors that operate like a power switch; when you move the bike, it turns on, and when you put it somewhere still, it turns off. So don't take it on the train, I guess. A Bluetooth connection lets you run the show through your smartphone, or there's a 3-inch screen in the nice-looking handlebar unit.

Modmo’s Saigon: 200 km On A Single Charge

Modmo claims you can get up to 200 km (124 miles) out of a single charge. That would seem a stretch to us from two-thirds of a kilowatt-hour of battery and a hub motor. Then again, the motor is an EU-legal, 36-volt 250-Watt weenie with five power levels, so it's not beyond the realms of possibility on the lowest possible setting with lots of downhills and never exceeding the pathetic EU-mandated limit of 25 km/h (15.5 mph). And the whole bike weighs a pretty amazing 13.9 kg or less than 31 pounds, so you're moving a significantly smaller mass around than on many electric bikes. Realistically, if you ride it like most folks want to ride their electric bikes, a quarter of that range might be closer to the truth.

That would still be practical for most folk, and the Saigon is a pretty tight-looking and well-thought-out little package. It's on pre-sale now for a 5 percent deposit on a €1,999 (US$2,238) price tag, which sounds like a decent deal to us for a beautiful custom frame with all those goodies. Deliveries are expected in September.
