Globe brand of bicycles was created by Specialized Bicycle Components, which has a long history of providing the best cycling products in the world. Globe is a brand of bicycles that have the unique ability to become an extension of peoples lifestyles and personal tastes, rather than simply a piece of sporting equipment. The bikes are inspired by and designed for urban cyclists, commuters, city dwellers, the progressively minded and the eco-conscious.

The Haul 01 features, Globe A1 Premium Aluminum frame with integrated rack makes loaded transport simple and easy. Double walled 32-hole rims with high-flange, phone dial hubs for timeless look and smooth ride. City grips look stylish and keep hands comfortably and safely in place.

CHOOSING A MOTOR
Theoretically, we can build a bike to suit any of your range requirements. We offer gearless brushless motors custom made for us using large heavy duty copper windings and the gearless motors have no internal moving parts, so it is inherently more reliable. The “HI TORQUE” Electric Bike Motor provides approximately 30% more torque than any other motor we sell. All motors are rated at peak power output. Motors are all REAR motors as they are much safer with higher output levels and do not require dual-torque arms like a front motor. Plus, ride dynamic is greatly increased with a rear motor versus a front motor. The “HI SPEED” Electric Bike Motor is the motor you want if your main priority is speed on flat ground! If you are an off-roader, and routinely climb hills, choose the “HI TORQUE” or “CROSS COUNTRY” Electric Bike Motor instead.

CHOOSING A POWER PACKAGE
Higher Wattage (W) means more power! The 1000W system has a bit over 1.25 hp and is a great, basic motor for medium assist up medium grades. This system has a top speed of 20 MPH. The 1500W systems all employ a 52v battery system that can provide more than 2 hp and can handle very steep grades. These packages can go up to 27+ MPH, and are the best choice for hill climbing! The 2800W system has more than 3.75 hp, and the NEW 4500W system features a brand new, wider motor with 5mm wider neodymium magnets and stator, can deliver OVER 6 hp! ALL SYSTEMS ARE FOR OFFROAD USE ONLY ABOVE 750W! Please check your local laws and regulations. Most models can be made on road legal with cycle computer.

The 2000W is, in our opinion, the best balance of performance, hill climbing, durability and price.

CHOOSING A BATTERY
Our new batteries are a special Lithium based tri-metal blend of Nickel, Manganese, and Cobalt, or Li-NMC for short. These batteries are 25% lighter than the outgoing LiFePo4 batteries and deliver consistently higher voltages across the voltage range which translates into more speed and range.

CHOOSING A CHARGER
By default, any battery system you purchase from us will come with a 2A Charger. This means that if you have a 10Ah battery system, it will charge in about 5 hours. You can choose to upgrade to a 4A charger which is twice as fast and will charge in half the time (2.5 hours for a 10Ah pack). Finally, the fastest charger we carry is a 10 Amp Charger which can charge in about 1hour. (or 3x as fast as the standard charger).

CHOOSING A THROTTLE
This is totally up to the end user. It comes down to personal preference, do you prefer a motorcycle type twist grip throttle or a thumb throttle? 95% of our bikes come with a twist throttle if your shifters are thumb throttles.

CHOOSING A FREEWHEEL
Choose the number of speeds on your freewheel based on the number of rear speeds on your bike. Most 21 speed bikes use a 7 speed freewheel, 24 speed bikes use an 8 speed freewheel, 27 speed bikes use a 9 speed freewheel, and 30 speed bikes use a 10 speed freewheel.

CHOOSING A RACK / BAG SYSTEM
If you have a basic battery system that is 10Ah, the standard rack is fine. However, if you would like a stronger, sturdier rack, opt for the upgraded rack that is rated to carry more weight. We also offer our exclusive Frame Bag battery system. The frame bag allows a much more central weight balance. These bags are hand made in the USA with exceptional attention to detail and make for an incredible ride! The new bags for 2013 are waterproof, feature lockable storage, and hardshell sidewalls to protect from punctures. At this time, our half-frame bag can fit up to a 90V 12.5Ah NMC battery system!

TORQUE ARM
For systems below 2000W, a torque arm is optional. Anything above 2000W, it is definitely recommended. The torque arm will save your motor from falling out/spinning off your dropouts.

E-BIKE DIAGNOSTIC CYCLE COMPUTER
The E-Bike Diagnostic Computer is a very useful tool for your electric bike and is highly recommended. It delivers vital information about your electric kit at your fingertips, such as: speed, distance, relative battery level, RMP, torque (Nm), and efficiency. It also allows you to limit your power level to your desired level so you can save battery. It also has a 3-speed function which allows you to set your speed (low, medium, high). With this computer, you have the ability to make any kit street legal!
