When we founded 50 Rebels Company in 2019, we wanted to make sure that we are always transparent and straightforward with our customers. The bicycle industry is in turmoil as I'm sure you will have heard on the news – business is booming, but the supply chains are clocked and shipping is nothing short of a nightmare. Knowing this, we used 2020 to strengthen our partnerships and made sure we will not be hit with delays like last year. Fingers crossed everything should still be on track for delivery mid-May.
However, now we have some good news and some bad news. Let's start with the bad news: Samsung fell short on their delivery on our E3500 cells. This would have meant that we need to change to battery cells with less energy density (3200mAh), however we decided to go a different route. A route that will put us right up there with Elon Musk and Tesla in terms of battery cells! Big words, I know... Let me explain:
The mentioned shortage of cells gave us the chance to change from 18650 to 21700 cell size. It's the future. This size enables us to store 5000 mAh per cell, and not the promised 3500 mAh. Okay... Numbers and stuff. Why would you care? Well, you don't necessarily have to care, if you already ordered your bike and the battery, because we just made it bigger, better and longer! So congrats on that steal! But it's still not what you signed up for, and we need to tell you. In case you haven't ordered your bike yet, here is why our bike just got much better:
These are the actual changes:
