Review: Gazelle Arroyo Electric Bike


https://newwheel.net/arroyo-c8 In our travels through Europe, we have enjoyed many rides on Dutch bikes over flat terrain. The Arroyo, at first glance, appeared to be a bike better suited for the flats. Upon closer inspection (and some truly blissful test rides) we realized that the Arroyo is a new breed of bicycle. Incorporating all of the comfort and convenience of Dutch engineered (and manufactured) bicycles, while remaining peppy and responsive thanks to the Bosch Active Line drive, the Gazelle Arroyo has become one of our favorite all around commuters.

  1. I LOVE the folks at the New Wheel! I have a Kalkhoff Sahel but I am always looking to what's new and what I might consider as my next (I am on my third electric bike) e-bike will be. Beautifully done video with tons of practical info. Brava Karen and New Wheel. Your fan in Benicia

  3. Whatever.
    Gazelle has a bad service.
    Also the quality is medium but expensive.
    Till 1980 Gazelle was the best bikes, now they use stuff from China.
    I don t buy it and i am Dutch.

  4. The Dutch don't wear those stupid helmets…… it really looks ridiculous and it's not giving any protection at all.
    I've been riding bikes for 40 years now, never ever had any head injuries , only my hands and knees had some little scratches.
    By the way, how short is that girl ? 1.20 or so ?!

  5. Before you buy a Gazelle e-bike, first ask the dealer whether each battery-pack needs to be registered to the e-bike by a Gazelle dealer. If so, do NOT buy it. Gazelle markets it as anti-theft, but it doesn't prevent your battery from being stolen in any way. It forces you to only buy additional or replacement battery-packs from Gazelle and those are freaking expensive.

  6. Pity people still need to dress like they're in an Audax when they ride the things.Ditch the fluoro, helmet, gloves and 'technical clothing'. It's a car substitute, not sports equipment and wearing all that crap on a bike like this just looks daft.

  7. 1:30 & 4:36 – handlebars are too far away for these people – needs moving closer. You should never ride with locked out elbows, they should be quite bent to give you full control.

  8. 2:50 – actually, Shimano roller brakes (not the cheap versions) are even better – they are consistent in all weather, make no mess, don't wear the rim down, don't require replacing brake shoes, will work even if the wheel is not true… but because most bike shop mechanics have NFI about them, they don't like selling bikes with them outside Europe or Japan. Pity….

  9. 3:40 – If you actually plug in an AXA cable, designed for these locks, it does make it a very secure lock. Almost nobody is aware of this feature outside Europe.
