Flux Bikes will soon bring no less than three new bicycles to Indiegogo, so if you've been fancying getting an electric assist bike, this might be your lucky call. While it's hard to come up with something new in the increasingly busier pedelec segment, Flux managed to bring a nifty feature to the front.
Their bikes' batteries are not visually obtrusive, and we're glad to see that more and more manufacturers are starting to pay attention to this. We've seen our fair share of ugly bikes whose batteries looked like they've been designed as ugly as possible on purpose, but with Flux, this has completely changed.

Flux integrated a high-capacity Panasonic-Samsung battery pack into the frame. Easily removable, this battery pack blends into the overall attire of the bike and is even hard to spot in the first place when such a two-wheeler passes by. The standard capacity is 13 Ah, with 17 Ah packs being also offered optionally.

The motor used is a 250W Bofeili unit with planetary gears and is mid-mounted. Five pedal-assist levels are available and easy to cycle through, offering the best response in correlation with each riding scenario.

There are three bikes that will be up for grabs, Street, Trail, and Attack, designed for casual city use, trail riding for outdoor action lovers who want more from their two-wheelers, and high-performance off-road riding, respectively.

LCD Kingmeter dash instruments with backlight illumination are stock, as are the Tektro rotors, brakes and levers. Full-power assist ranges are also neat, with the Street offering up to 46 miles (74 km) and the other two 41 miles (66 km). Obviously, the pedal assistance can be shut off completely when not needed.

A USB port is also standard, making sure your phone never runs out of battery while you're riding a Flux. As we've been told by Flux, it's only a matter of weeks until their bikes hit Indiegogo at early-bird prices that will be hard to match.

Also, we've been informed that a Flux prototype was stolen in Marina District, San Francisco on February 9. If you live in the area and see someone riding such a bike, it may be the thief, so maybe you can help retrieve the stolen bike.
