  • Best bike I've ever owned. Easy as that 🤠

  • Exchanged my car for a Cowboy - best decision ever!

    Nov 27, 2018

  • Good bike, only struggle i found was with adjusting the belt and the connection with my phone. Otherwise amazing ridewise, acceleration and looks.

    Nov 25, 2018

  • The simplicity of the bike, the colour, the design and the management are tremendous! Just is missing in my view the possibility to refill the battery of the smartphone somewhere on the main battery of the bike ... 😉

    Nov 25, 2018

  • Proud to be a cowboy! The team is very helpfull and reacts in less then a few minutes!

  • My Cowboy is a sleek, sexy machine. I chose it over other ebikes because it had that ‘woo hoo’ factor when riding vs. the others, that no matter the price or the features, felt like driving trucks in comarison to a nimble sports car. This is a young startup company and this is product #1. Although there are some specific things they may offer in the future which will be improvements on choice, options and may affect handling, I felt it was important to get support this start up and their vision. I love my eBike.

  • Mimalistic bike but everything you need to move trough the city

    Nov 07, 2018

  • Intuitive and easy tu use, does exactly what I hoped for: no more hard climbs, very helpful at starting off, light for an e-bike, and shamelessly design and elegant! Thrilled to have one 😊. Does really all what it claims to do. Amazing support from the team too!

  • This bike is sooo much fun. Has transformed my dull cycle to work into an adrenaline fueled sprint. After sales service is fantastic. Would strongly recommend this bike.

    Nov 03, 2018

  • Great bike, it's a pleasure to ride it. Use it to go tot work. Enjoy every minute. Thanks!

  • + design + Quality of material + Speed + App + After sales + Project - accessories - suspension (shock absorbition) - anti-theft feature (embedded in bike)

    Oct 27, 2018

  • Some problems with the delivery service but otherwise absolutely happy with and excited about my Cowboy Bike. Already got a lot of questions and compliments from friends and colleagues. Simply Awesome Bike

  • How slow & boring my life was without my Cowboy... Best way to commute to work ⚡or enjoy a countryside ride 😌

    Oct 24, 2018

  • Easy, fun, design!

    Oct 05, 2018

  • Just fantastic

    Oct 05, 2018

  • Grest bike. It changed my life no longer stuck in trafic, no longer arriving sweating and in need of a shower at work! Only a little disappointed by the battery because in Brussels with my weight it doesn’t last for 50 km. But a fantastic bike anyway.

    Oct 05, 2018

  • Fast and good looking bike, no nonsense.

  • The bike is great! Good time will riding it. Even in the cold weather, I'm really excited to use it ;)I didn't put 5* because there's always room for improvement :)

    Sep 25, 2018

  • Simpel, fun to ride & beautiful design!The lack of mudguards is annoying in bad weather conditions.

    Sep 25, 2018

  • Life changer: improve health, lower frustration levels and enjoy the thrills of sitting on a rocket!

    Sep 25, 2018

  • Great alternative for various car trips. Bike runs very smooth. The app shows all the info you need and you can easily act on the shown information.Everything is very easy to use, even the bike assembly. Great match between design, technology and daily use!Whenever you have a question, Cowboy helps you out very quickly no matter who you contact. Fantastic teamwork!

    Sep 25, 2018

  • The battery lasted max 30KM from the start. I have now used the bike for one month and max loading capacity has dropped to 89% of full charge. max distance is now just above 25km on full charge.

    Sep 25, 2018

  • Personnally I adore the bike. I was and still am totally charmed by its design, the looks, the brand and also the team around it. Living a bit more than 20 km south from the Brussels border (Brabant) and working at several spots in town, my total biking distance for a normal workday is about 70km (2x35km, charging @work :-). I know that I am an atypical Cowboy-Rider, given that I cover higher average distances than most users, when I ride it. Weak points therefore mainly consist in the absence of any suspension. The strongest point, aside from its sheer beauty is the lightweight. Although I still love the bike after a few months, I may hence conceed that the main target for the Cowboy maybe the city or more proximal suroundings. However if asked whether I would buy it again, the answer is a clear 'yes' :-)

    Sep 16, 2018

  • I am using the bike 3 times a week for a mixed urban/country circuit of 28km each way. It is actually saving me time compared to the car + bus that I otherwise have to take. Bike gives steady power when needed and is particularly pleasant on uphill.

    Sep 14, 2018

  • Cowboy allowed me to ditch my car & still get to work in the same amount of time while getting some exercise in. I love every minute on the bike!

    Sep 14, 2018

  • Great bike, great driving experience, awesome looks. Simple and straightforward.

    Sep 13, 2018

  • The Cowboy is a well conceived, well made and well working electric bike, that keeps it's website promises and delivers daily riding pleasure.I've had much more expensive electric bikes, but this one is close to the zero-default in terms of conception and riding. The main advantages I would point out are its weight and agility, the fantastic assistance of the motor, making every ride effortlessly enjoyable, the app interface user-friendliness and the frame geometry. Ah, and, yes, the total absence of commands on the handlebars!!So far, I've ""loaded"" my Cowboy with: raised handlebars, a ring (it's legally mandatory, guys...), suspended seat, fenders (curana for an awsome look), back rack with ortlieb brown bags, a tail light and a stand. It's now ready for my daily commutes in the city, all-year-long!Thanks and kudos to the Cowboy Team!

  • I love driving this bike. I got the cowboy in the beginning of July and drove about 800 km since. For commuting inside the city it is perfect for me, I live in a pretty hilly city and I do not care about the hills anymore. Yet the bike is not made for everybody, if you are looking for a bike to do longer weekend trips in your free time or have a pretty long commute, you might want to look for a bike with a bigger battery (500 Wh). But personally I can't imagine a better bike for commuting, especially for that price.I tried to summarise some pros and cons:Pros:- Great, effortless riding- No shifting necessary, one gear is absolutely sufficient inside the city (I actually love the fact that I do not need to hassle with multiple gears)- Removable battery (this was mandatory for me)- Stunning design- Integrated lights- Belt driven, so less maintenance necessary (and due to the hub motor on the rear wheel the belt should last a while)- Disk brakes (even though I do not really like mineral oil disk brakes, but for this bike the brakes are totally acceptable)Cons:- Real-world range is somewhere between 35 and 40 km (definitely not 50), depending on your weight, speed and the landscape profile (for me this is totally fine, I do a maximum of 30 km a day)- This is not a bike for long distances like weekend trips, due to the geometry of the bike and the hard saddle long distances may become uncomfortable- For higher speeds a second (automatic) gear would be great- Steep hills are a test of your patience as the electric motor clearly works at its limit (the trick is to pedal with the exact amount of force to let the motor work at its maximum without having to do real pedal work on your own - this makes you climb the hill slow but nearly effortless)I would recommend the bike if you live inside the city and have a commute of up to 15 km one way (mine is 7 which I do in 20 minutes).I would not recommend the bike if you are taller than 1,90 due to the geometry of the bike or if you want or have to travel long distances.

    Sep 13, 2018

  • The feeling of riding this bike is just great - I'm using it for my commute (2x20km), and the battery _just_ makes it (25km/h mode).I've upgraded the saddle (gel) and added an adjustable handlebar stem and a lightweight carrier. I've only noticed one real annoyance so far: the front light is to ambient, and doesn't throw a far enough beam to light the road (esp. off-road) at night. I'will add a small led light on my handlebar to compensate...

    Sep 13, 2018

  • Extremely cool design, fantastic riding experience (even if you switch off the motor), robust, extremely customer-oriented service... tomorrow I will have biked my first 1000 km, in just 1,5 months.

    Sep 13, 2018

  • The Tesla amongst e-bikes. Dead silent, no clunky gears, a carbon belt drive, sufficiently powerful for even the steepest climbes, frequent software updates and a very sexy look. People recognise the bike when you’re driving it.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Light, easy, smart and cool.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Nice looking bike for regular drives (no offroad) Delivers what it promises on autonomy. very smooth assistance.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Really cool to ride. Simple, light, very fast acceleration. Good value!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Super cool !

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Great bike, range 50km is ok.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • The Cowboy is for me just a way of getting away. I take the cowboy to my customers, friends,... They all want to try it. For me it's what a bike should be: Simple and reliable. (even in 'The Ardennes' it was a lot of fun!)

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Exactly what I needed.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Sep 12, 2018

  • This is a great urban bike for the short and mid range distances. The Cowboy is and feels very light allowing you to steer easily through the busy city traffic or to commute. For the relative low price setting this bike offers quite a lot: hydrolic brakes, enough power giving you a boost when needed, a carbon belt gearless drive system and a fantastic accompanying app with the same minimalistic Nordic design as the bike itself. This bike has no suspension so try to avoid bad roads and potholes. The young team behind this project has done a fantastic job, I recommend this nice looking bike!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Simply makes biking fun again. :)

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Fantastic bike from an incredible team of people. Service is on a whole new level: I got a call before I knew I had a problem (with power delivery)! Looking forward to new features!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • It changed my life !!! My remedy against stress allowing me to cross Brussels (almost) everyday to go to work without being tired and feeling like a trend setter on this head-turning bike. Great performance, lightweight, great design and ... cheap ! You try=you buy!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • My car is jealous! The bike is my new way of transportation thru city traffic and on all the hills I have to do, to go to work.The build quility of the bike is fair in relation to the price. The Cowboy team is still improving the bike and provide good support.Only negative point: The delivery company: 0/5 !

    Sep 12, 2018

  • The cowboy bike is a real gem. No only it is well designed, it is also so easy to use...no gears, you only have to start riding and it does everything for you. The electric push is thriving, especially when you are going uphill. Since I bought it, it has become my main mean of transport and I adore it. I only wish that Brussels roads could be better adapted to biking mobility. Only hic is the accessories. It would be great that you could equip it with mudguards or with bags to carry stuff. That would help a lot those that use if for purposes other than a fun ride.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • The bike is really stunning, love it all the way, ideal for short trips in the city.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • This bike is amazing! I've ridden 311km on the bike in 4 weeks and still enjoy it every time.Commuting to work has never been easier and more relaxing. You can just pedal along and enjoy the power of the motor, or push hard and actually still have a work out. The only difference (with a normal bike) is you go a lot faster!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Cycling is not my thing, my cowboy has proven me the opposite...

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Nice design

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Great bike, great fun, but there is always something to do better. So 4 on 5

    Sep 12, 2018

  • It’s beautiful, it’s fast, it’s interactive. It makes me happier when going to work!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • I've been using the bike for almost 3 months now, and I love it!I've attached a Thule Yepp Nexxt child seat, fits perfectly. With the minimal design and all black style, this bike looks elegant. I've made a bit of addition and replacements as pet my taste.

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Very nice bike, easy to use and no hassle with gears, displays,... It made me ride a bike again to go to work (32km/day)!

    Sep 12, 2018

  • This basic bike made me more mobile in a clean and healthy way. Riding my black beauty to work at a decent speed over the 'fietsostrade' gets me there fast and with an easy as I am just a bit quicker than the other e-bikes. I had to add a bell and a phone holder and am still waiting for some decent mudflaps but for the amount I paid I got a lot of bike and advantages. Already 2 other friends bought one and I am waiting for the comfort model to buy 1 or 2 additional cowgirls(?)... I used to hate riding a bike, now I am sometimes smiling when I know I can take it for a spin soon!

  • I was looking into buying a speedelec, but that's an expensive joke and I don't really need the 45km/h or insane battery life since my commute is only 10km. But all regular e-bikes are ugly and dull, so I was stuck in a dilemma. But then I stumbled upon this Cowboy thingy, which did not look ugly and dull. So I ordered it the next day.I did some shorter and longer rides with it and I can only conclude this is a great product. I'm a heart patient, so I have to keep my HR down or I'm a dead man. The Cowboy makes me forget all about that since 1) the assistance is there, but it's not overwhelming 2) there's no social stigma since you can't really tell it's an e-bike and it just looks cool.I rode a couple of frontwheel driven e-bikes and a Shimano Steps mid-engine system before and the Cowboy is nothing like that. Other e-bikes give you more of a scooter-ish feel. The Cowboy does not have a controller, it doesn't even have gears. You want to ride faster? Just pedal harder/faster. It will match your pace seamlessly. Remember when all touch screen phones were crap and then the iPhone came out? This is kind of the same thing.The design is also quite something. It really is the Tesla of e-bikes in the sense that everyone is intrigued by it and asks you all about it. But where Tesla kind of cheaps out on some of their parts, the Cowboy does not: the tyres are Schwalbe, the grips are Brooks, the pedals are nice and large, the saddle is decent (but not great). The handle bar is a tad smaller than what you might be used to. I like it, it doesn't take too much space in the hallway, and it adds some fixie nostalgia. More attention to detail: the small rubber strip on the crossbar of the rear fork keeps you from scratching up the battery when removing it. When you accidentally turn your front wheel all the way around, the handle bar does not touch the top bar, they left 2-3mm clearance. The Cowboy clearly wasn't built overnight.Also, the bike is completely black (except for the disk brakes). The screws on the stems? Black. The nipples of the wheels? Black. The cups of the bottom bracket? Black. The rails of the saddle? Black. The rear wheel motor? Black. This is not the kind of bike you spend another $500 on upgrading parts here and there. You can add mudguards or a rack if you really want to, but that's about it.The offroad mode limits assistance to 30km/h instead of 25km/h. IIlegal in Belgium, but so is tax fraud,highway speeding and spraying your lawn. It's great. You're a tad faster than every e-bike granny or grandpa, but it's not dangerously fast. The disk brakes will stop you just in time for every obstacle, every time. In offroad mode the battery will last 40km. Ok, that's not that much. But at 16kg and 1800 euros, it's more than reasonable. Ok, ok, fanboy alert. Surely, there must be some drawbacks? This is going to sound cliché but there is only one: it's just too nice. At work, I hide mine in the boiler room instead of putting it in the bike rack. I still take my gf's bike to the local supermarket. I don't want it to get stolen, I don't want anyone to even damn touch it. An integrated (physical) lock would have been nice since any aftermarket lock will ruin the bike's aesthetic. Also, the app has some lag to it, and I hope they further develop the analytics/ride history part.But other than that, this thing is a Tinder Super Like for sure.

  • Elegant, and beautiful, and powerful. I reduced my commuting time by 50%, without sweat anymore !The perfect way to start or end the day. Biking became so convenient !

    Sep 12, 2018

  • Sep 12, 2018

  • This is the way an e-bike should be! Less complexity and easy & fun to ride.No hassle with the gears or pedals, just step up and it will let you ride with a nice push from the back whenever you need it.Highly recommendable and the looks are also incredible.

    Jul 07, 2018

  • The bike is simple yet powerful and it is really well designed. The support from the team is amazing.

    Jul 05, 2018

  • Great, beautiful, sexy.

    Jun 26, 2018

  • Extremely light E-Bike, very easy to handle. It can be started without much preparation. A little hard when driving because no suspension. Some accessories still have to be bought e.g. bike stand, bell, mud flaps.

    Jun 26, 2018

  • Well, I actually don't use it as a city bike but a countryside bike, since I took it with me to Gascony in France. Going uphill has become much easier and still I have the sensation that I still have to push bike, which is what I really wanted. The design is beautiful ! Just love it !

    Jun 26, 2018

  • Ok very good buy but would be better with tyres adapted to our country side lanes this bike is not only to be used on cobblestone roads Quite difficult to find a spare tyre,or even a new inner tube

    Jun 25, 2018

  • Amazing bike. Slick and clean design. Great experience. It’s like always riding downhill with back wind ;)

    Jun 25, 2018

  • User friendly bike, perfectly fits urban travel needs, pure design, strong and reliable value, helpful cowboy team !

    Jun 25, 2018

  • A Unique sportive modern design city bike easy and pleasant to drive. Other look very interested what bike you’re driving if you pass them swiftly or if you take off fast at a traffic light before all others thanks to the powered acceleration. Fantastic!

    Jun 21, 2018

  • Cowboy riding for 4 weeks now, with great pleasure! it really makes the difference in the way I choose "bike or car or tram", no need to worry about distances or hilly roads! The bike itself is really well designed, still few adjustment on the app coming, but the customer service is perfect! (would dream it for my mercedes...). Just a good choice!

    Jun 21, 2018

  • When my wife and I were biking in the city she was always first with here electric bike. Now she cannot follow the Cowboy accelerations because he is so light he fly’s away after the red light.

    Jun 20, 2018

  • Basically levels out any slope. I love the kick when getting off at a red light. Sure has the looks !

    Jun 20, 2018

  • Perfectly fit my needs.

    Jun 20, 2018

  • For short trips cowboy is even a good alternative to an electric scooter (which I was considering). When I ride the cowboy I feel more like riding a scooter than a bycicle. It is a big pleasure to ride uphill without almost any effort. In my previous e-bike I had to choose the amount of power to be delivered x1/x2/x3/x4 and I always had to calculate a fair solution between performance and remaining battery charge. Now this issue is "not applicable" = no stress. The battery is light and fast to charge.

    Jun 20, 2018

  • Very easy to use, beautiful design and finally battery is making the job for city moves.

    Jun 19, 2018

  • Cowboy is first and foremost a beautiful bike that is really convenient and makes you want to wander around cities.

    Jun 19, 2018

  • Simple, beautiful, affordable. Extremely fun to ride!

    Jun 19, 2018

  • I’ve never been a real adept of bicycles, well that changed with my Cowboy bike 🤠. So far I’ve used it for all my travels and all of them were a real pleasure in the city as in the country as well.

    Jun 19, 2018

  • Great bike, Very nice designed, easy to ride, I’m very happy with it :D

    Jun 19, 2018

  • The Cowboy bike is absolutely amazing! It completely changed the way I move around the city: I wasn't a big fan of riding my bike to go to work, but now I couldn't imagine commuting without it. The motor-assistance system is really flawless and kicks-in very naturally, and you can ride the bike just as usual, except it's easier and faster! It's a complete pleasure to be riding my Cowboy everyday, I really love it!

    Jun 19, 2018

  • Great service before delivery, great unboxing experience with easy set up, great bike --> happy Cowboy here :-)
