San Francisco-based electric bike maker A2B shows their Alva+ wheeler, a sweet pedelec with plenty of classic attitude and nifty commuting features.
The Alva+ is a bicycle for commuters who would ride 20-30 miles to work or for other errands and who are not that keen to rely one their muscle power solely for the task.

If you're not willing to carry another set of clothes to work to change your sweaty t-shirt after 20 miles of pedaling, then the Alva+ might be the right choice. It comes with 3 assist levels and a full bicycle gear set for classic pedal action, thanks to a Shimano XT 8G derailer.

Alva+ comes with a Lithium-Ion 36V, 13.2 Ah battery as standard, but customers can opt in for the beefier 17 Ah pack.

The stock battery needs 3-4 hours to fully charge and this gives the 500W rear hub motor enough juice for a top assistance speed of 24 mph (38.6 km/h). The max assistance range is 40 miles (64 km), depending on rider weight and riding conditions. However, the battery is easily removable and can be charged anywhere, so we're cool with this.

On the price side though, the Alva+ is a bit steep: $3,399 (€2,482) could bring a nifty e-scooter in one's garage, for sure. There is the advantage of being able to pedal back home, of course, but this is a task for strong riders, as the Alva+ tips the scales at 66 pounds (29.8 kg)...
