NEW! Optional Mountain Bike Wheelset for 26" Bikes!
We're now offering a narrower wheelset for the Large blackbird. This option sets the bike up with 27.5" x 2.1" Maxxis tires on lightweight rims. This removes over 5lbs of weight from the bike, making for a lighter, more maneuverable ride!
The Large frame size can also come with both wheelsets for an additional fee. The 2nd wheelset includes:
27.5" rear wheel with Bafang Hub Motor
Front 27.5" wheel
Pair of 27.5" tubes
Pair of 27.5" x 2.1" Maxxis Tires
The 2nd wheelset does NOT include a 9 speed SRAM cassette or 203mm rotors. These can be transferred from the installed fat wheels, or purchased separately if you'd like 2 complete sets.
"Bolton" Blowout! We're clearing out all bikes with the Bolton label to make room for "Area 13" bikes.

24"Model is considered a Medium (frame size 17")
I put the bike together and the threads securing the left peddle in place came out with the peddle inside the first day of owning it and having it assembled. I reached out to the seller via email and they didn't respond. So now, not only have I got to get someone locally to source and replace the part but I don't have the bike to ride during that time. Disappointing. Giving two stars because in the short time I was able to ride it I had a blast.
With the video the assembly was note that difficult (see below). The bike was better than anticipated, very high quality and attention to detail. At the discounted price it basically can't be beat. A few minor issues probably from shipping. The front fender was bent a bit and had a small crimp making mounting difficult. As the headlight mounts with the fender mounting the headlight was also difficult and I had to modify the light mount as well so it would not rub against the bike frame. Still putting the bike through its paces but so far it has been great.
I have been enjoying the Blackbird so far. I have had no issues. Battery life is great. Handling and comfort are also very good.
This bike is a TANK. I had been researching e bikes for months. I definitely chose the right company and the right bike. Time to start accesorizing!!!
The blackbird has allowed an older rider like myself to go where my tired old legs can't take me. Love it !
I own two 26" fatties but neither were trail able so when I saw these (BOLTON) 24" trail ready I fell in love and wouldn't you know it Kyle had a giveaway contest! MERRY CHRISTMAS 2 ME! I WON....now let me tell ya, this 24" trail fatty is FANtastic! It handles like a dream (a bit stiff as should be) and the 4.0 knonbies make turns flawlessly. Equipped with a 48v 750 (7 speed)power station it's zippes the hills and flys on the open roadways! I can't say enough about this well engineered and equipped BOLTON E-BIKE...just join us and experience the ride yourself! Thanks Kyle and BOLTON E-BIKES for getting me on the TRAILS!
Every thing is great. It arrived with the wheels, seat and handlebars off. I assembled it in about 30 minutes. I have put about 90 miles on it. The brakes need to be adjusted but overall a fast bike. Most of my riding is on the beach sand.
Kyle did some work on a Rad Rover, replacing the stock daFang 750 W motor with his version of a 750 W motor along with a 52 volt battery, racks and other options. Bike works spectacularly for my 6' 1' 230 lb body. The bike handles very well and the electric boost performance is far superior to any other of the bikes I tried out, prior to purchasing from Kyle. His followup was great and well received by both my wife, (who also bought a bike from Kyle) and me. I would definitely purchase another product from Kyle, his videos are amazingly beneficial and well worth the time to view if you are in the e-bike market. Thanks Kyle!
The new 2020 bike is great! Was well packaged for shipping and easy to install front tire, handle bars, seat, and pedals. Bike is very fast and the new color display looks great. Awesome looking bike!
