[Image taken 14.12.21] Library Square, York. A Paris C7 HMB. This e-cycle is very smart. It has an upright riding position and permanent panniers – so a ‘York’cycle (machine set up for utility use). But it is heavy. The weight of this Gazelle is just under 23kg, excluding the 2kg-plus battery. I also felt less confident I could grasp the down tube at the bottom bracket as I do with mine. So, even without the panniers this cycle exceeds the 25kg LNER says the hooks on its Azumas can cope with. But, the owner of this cycle said it is not designed to be lifted let alone onto its rear wheel and manoeuvred onto/off a hook. (Likely also against the clock and while the train is moving.) Other image this cycle today: #176781. Other interesting cycles here/near here today: #176782, #176783. Other images today: #176778 and links.
