The Quella Electric Varsity range maintains a vintage retro design with a revolutionary electric motor. The motor and battery fit neatly inside the rear hub in a handsome, stainless steel plated body that enables partial re-charging whilst you ride.

  • Maximum range - 37 miles / 60km

Bluetooth technology links the hub to your handlebar remote and your phone so you manage your hub settings through an app. The hub incorporates a regenerative KERS (Kinetic Energy Recuperation System) braking system, similar technology as used in Formula One engines, energy is converted to recharge and power the battery whilst back-pedalling and simultaneously slowing the bicycle down.

The rear hub can even be used as a GPS tracker, with tamper proof alarm and wheel lock function.Motor assistance activates once the bike reaches 5km “As soon as you stop pedalling, the motor will stop pushing”.

Extremely lightweight thanks to the 3.2kg rear hub motor and battery combination, the Quella e-bike starts at just 13.9kg for the 51 and 54cm frames and 15.2kg for our 58 and 61cm frames.

The Zehus electric hub has 4 power levels:

  • No assist - manual riding
  • Eco mode - Pedal assist with maximum distance of 60km from one charge.
  • Turbo - Maximum pedal assistance up to 25km/h with a maximum power of 250W
  • Turbo Custom - Create your own power mode using the Bluetooth app. You can change 2 parameters: the amount of Boost the motor gives you at low speed and the overall amount of Assistance factor of the motor.

We work with dedicated courier services to deliver your item to you as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Orders are dispatched on weekdays only.

Tandem Group Cycles is proud to offer you two options for taking delivery of your new bike/scooter. 

1)  Click & Collect (our recommended option); allows you to select the most suitable store in your area to have the bike delivered to, the store staff will assemble the bike for you and ensure it is in full working order ready for your to collect.  There is no additional charge for this service; it also saves you having to wait at home for a delivery, means you have no big box to dispose of and most importantly means your new bike is set-up correctly by a professional.  Any order placed before midday will be dispatched for delivery the following working day.  Available through participating stores only.

2)  Direct Delivery; available to Mainland UK addresses only, delivery charges apply (see below for further details).  Estimated delivery time 2-5 working days.  We will dispatch orders received by midday that same day and our chosen courier will deliver direct to your door.  You will need to be in to sign for the delivery and bikes will be delivered boxed, 85% assembled.  Final assembly should be conducted by someone competent with the basic mechanics of a bicycle, if you require the help of your local bike shop please be aware the service will be chargeable

3) Direct Delivery Electric Bikes; electric bikes are delivered 'built and ready to ride'. This means one of our trained, expert mechanics has fully assembled your bike in our workshop, applied protective packaging and re-boxed it for our courier to deliver it to you. After delivery you only need to make minor adjustments.

On arrival please complete the following:

  1. Remove the electric bike and any documentation/spare parts boxes from the outer carton and take off any protective packaging.
  2. With the bike on the ground or in a work stand, loosen the bolts on the handlebar stem where it meets the fork, line the handlebars up to the front wheel and re-tighten.
  3. In some cases you may also need to adjust the handlebar angle. To do this please loosen the bolts on the front of the handlebar stem where it meets the handlebars and rotate the bars until it is in a comfortable position, then re-tighten bolts.
  4. Your left pedal will already be fitted, so take the unfitted pedal and screw it clockwise into the threaded hole on your crank arm. We trial fit these prior to dispatch to ensure there is no cross-threading, so please take extra care when fitting.
  5. Adjust your saddle height if necessary by loosening the seat clamp and adjusting it to a suitable height. We recommend that your knee is slightly bent at the bottom of each pedal stroke whilst sat comfortably.
  6. Double check that every bolt you have adjusted is tight.
  7. We recommend charging your ebike to full capacity before you ride it to help the long-term health of your battery. To see if there is sufficient level of charge please check the handlebar display.

Please note - we complete the same pre-departure assembly on folding electric bikes, but dispatch them folded in their original box.

If you require the help of your local bike shop, please be aware that the service will be chargeable.
