To start thing off we will take a closer look at the double butted 6061 aluminum frame that has a very clean look.

Here’s a look at the headtube area and you can see the welds have been smoothed to create a clean flowing look between the frame tubes. The integrated headset is also a nice touch for a minimalist appearance.

The seat tube junction also has the smooth welds for the clean look.

Internal frame cable routing for the rear brake cable in the top tube is a nice aesthetic touch.

Here is a look at the double butted 6061 aluminum front forks.

populo-sport-electric-bike-battery-right

The 36V 8.7ah lithium battery with Panasonic cells is mounted on the downtube of the frame providing a low and centered weight distribution, which is good for overall bike handling.

On the left side is a battery level indicator towards the bottom of the pack.

There is also a USB port on the left side of the battery so that you can charge your smartphone, tablet, etc. on the go.

The battery is removed by unlocking it from the frame with the supplied key and sliding it forward off of the frame mount shown here. 

populo-sport-electric-bike-battery-charger

The battery charging port is on the left side of the battery towards the top of the pack. The battery weighs 4.7 pounds. 

The charger is about the size of a laptop charger. The battery can be charged on or off the bike.

The alloy cranks feature a 46T chainring and the wide platform pedals provide a solid grip. 

populo-sport-electric-bike-cadence-sensor

cadence sensor is used to activate the pedal assist system. You can see this sensor at the bottom bracket of the frame. 

populo-sport-electric-bike-geared-motor

The Populo Sport is powered by a 250 watt geared rear hub motor that has a small minimalist look to it. It provides pedal assist (no throttle) up to 20 mph which makes this a Class 1 eBike

A 16T cog is paired with the 46T chainring on the cranks for a single speed drivetrain. You can also see the clean frame details at the dropouts here.

The top down look at the motor and rear cog; it’s pretty simple and clean!

populo-sport-electric-bike-front-brake

Caliper brakes are used front and rear and they have a classic look with pretty good stopping power.

Here is a look at the rear caliper brake. 

populo-sport-electric-bike-rear-tire

The CST 700c x 28c road tires really help the Populo Sport fly! These narrow road tires are all about efficiency and they help the Populo Sport comfortably cruise at 20 mph.

A reflective strip on the tires is also a nice safety feature for being seen.
