Sydney is the name of the latest model from Coboc, with which you should experience a lot of riding fun both in everyday life and on the training lap. The concept of this slim and sporty bike is reminiscent of typical Coboc classics such as the Brooklyn Fat: no mudguards, fairly wide tires, light weight and a sporty look.
Features that the new Sydney also brings with it — but offers even more. For example, the integrated lighting system with the Coboc-typical and integrated into the seat tube rear light. In front, a headlight from Supernova is used, which is mounted below the handlebar.
Instead of a purist singlespeed drive, the Sydney has an SRAM derailleur with 11 gears, with which even descents in light terrain can be most — as long as the 40 mm wide Schwalbe tires of the type G-One-Allround just offer grip. And if there is no further progress: with a weight of 14.5 kg, the Coboc is also one of the lightweights among the e-bikes and can also be carried for a short time.
The drive system developed by Coboc consists of a CBC02 hub motor in the rear wheel, a 380 Wh battery in the down tube (permanently installed) and the motor control inside the bike, which regulates the electric assistance depending on the values of the torque sensor. Apart from the on-off switch on the underside of the top tube, the Sydney’s e-drive is hardly recognizable from the outside. However, those who want more info while riding can resort to the optional smartphone app. By the way, an adapter from SP Connect is already installed on the stem of the Sydney for easy attachment of the smartphone to the bike.
The geometry with a slightly sloping top tube should allow a comfortable and rather upright riding position. For the best possible fit to the body, the Sydney will be available in four frame sizes, each in matte Emerald Grey. The new model is expected to be available at the end of 2022/beginning of 2023, with a likely retail price of 3,799 euros.
