This is the first non-ecologic bike that we consider on this web, and it’s for a couple of reasons. This bike looks great, has a good price and the relation gas-miles is awesome. Far from a standard motorized gas-hybrid bike, Phatmoto hides quite a bit of convenient engineering features within traditional bike frame appearance. This is a new brand in the market (since 2018) but they have focused their design to include the features that people have been demanding from many conversion kit manufacturers, and that’s what makes them have successful feedback from the people.

- The 4 cycle engine is an easy start and not loud.
- Some customers say, the seat is not very comfortable but that’s common in most of the bikes and it’s easily replaced.
- The throttle is not too sensitive, and it requires a lot of muscle to pull it back

First, the Phatmoto 79cc comes with an OHV 4-stroke gas bike engine with an automatic clutch that allows anyone to travel at speeds of 25 mph or even more if you remove the governor limit screw. Some people said that they achieve 30 miles which is quite enough for a bicycle.

As I said in the beginning, we are not used to posting info about non-eco bikes, but this one really calls my attention when I saw it in the street. After a while, I could find it to check it and test it in a couple of sites, and it convinced me, it’s smooth and not loudly like other models of this kind of bike. This bike would really useful if you need to go through 20 miles a day trip and are looking for something fun and not too expensive, you will save in gas as well and it’s fast enough to enjoy a good trip.
