Are you looking for an everyday electric bike that's easy to use, comfortable to ride, and super convenient? Would you like an ebike that is specially designed for cruising around the city, with a low-step frame for easy boarding, intuitive controls and an informative LCD display?

Then let me introduce you to the new Revi Bikes (formerly Civi Bikes) Runabout. This incredibly affordable ebike is so feature-packed that won't believe it only costs $1,499. Let's begin with the obvious - it's electronics. The Runabout sports a 500W geared rear hub motor running at 48V, for incredible climbing ability. Pair that awesome motor with the long-range 48V/14.5Ah battery, which can deliver about 45 miles of travel on a single charge.

Electronics aside, did you notice that the Revi Bikes Runabout comes with an aluminum front basket, fenders and a rear rack, with the matching rear basket as an optional accessory. That makes the Runabout the perfect ride for trips to the grocery store or farmer's market. You may find yourself going out for several rides each day, to visit with friends or catch the sunset from a favorite lookout.

Electric Bike Review (EBR) Coverage of Runabout

Court Rye from Electric Bike Review (EBR) has just reviewed the Civi Runabout, and you should definitely check what he has to say. In summary, this is what EBR says the Civi Runabout:

  • A powerful stout short tail cargo electric bike with mechanical disc brakes, 7-speed drivetrain, 500 watt hub-drive, and high-capacity 48v 14ah battery pack for longer range
  • Capable and purpose built for possibilities, there are great available accessories like rear basket, double pannier bags, or a duffle bag
  • Slightly upgraded Shimano Altus derailleur, adjustable length kickstand with good positioning, and low stand over height means not only easy to get on and off, but also very easy to load and unload
  • Cost saving measures means basic brakes and no lights, not suited for bigger jobs, and the cup holder in the front can get in the way of load possibilities
