The Electrifying eBullitt
Two Powerful Motors To Choose From
The E6100 The Flexible Workhorse
Built on the latest technologies developed for their successful e-MTB system which serves as the industry’s benchmark, the Shimano STePS 6100 motor is their most versatile system and one of the smallest and lightest offerings on the market, weighing just 2.8 kg.
Integration with Shimano’s industry-leading, crisp gear shifting and smart firmware support via their bluetooth compatible etube platform, with 250 watt and 60 newton meters of torque, the E6100 brings you quickly and effectively up to speed.
The EP8 The Powerhouse
The result of many years development, Larry vs Harry’s flagship eBullitt brings Shimano’s wealth of experience in cycling engineering into a small, powerful and brilliantly functioning motor. Massively powerful and beautifully engineered, the engine provides a fantastic and natural transfer of power just when you need it.
With 250 watt and a hefty 85 newton meters of torque, the EP8 represents the pinnacle of electrically assisted bikes and its strength makes it ideal for serious cargo transporting. The EP8 rolls smoothly and incredibly efficiently coupled with the low-maintenance and precise shifting of the Di2 electronic gears, time and time again.
Hub Gears Vs Derailleurs
Your choice between E6100 or EP8 also dictates which gearing combinations are available to you — with the E6100 you can have either the Nexus 5-speed or the Alfine 11-speed, whereas with the EP8 your only hub gear option is the Nexus 5-speed. Both motors are available with the XT 11-speed derailleur option.
Derailleur gears offer the best power transfer and the eBullitt’s XT 11-speed derailleur option is a terrific example. There is less energy getting lost in space, every bit of raw power you put into your pedals will be transferred almost directly into your forward momentum, getting you where you need to be. This is the most efficient type of setup.
On the other hand you may prefer the eBullitt’s Nexus 5-speed or the Alfine 11-speed internal hub geared options, which are both first class. With one cog, one chain/belt drive, and one chainring, hub gears require less maintenance and, unlike derailleur gears, you can also choose to upgrade to the Gates Carbon Drive, and you can change gear even when stationary.
The Nexus 5 Di2 version is perfect for typical urban journeys while Alfine 11-speed set up, with a much wider gear ratio, is useful if you live in a hilly area, or are planning an extended trip.

eBullitt Derailleur Gears Option

If you are accustomed to the quick shifting of mountain and road based gear systems, then this XT 11 speed Di2 derailleur and cassette combo is ideal for your style of riding. With an 11-44 tooth cassette and a 44 tooth chaining, gearing is wide enough for the vast majority of applications and environments. The electronic Di2 shifting on the XT version of the eBullitt is crisp and precise, and is incredibly low maintenance as trim adjustment is pre-programmed and there is no cable stretch that can be found in traditional mechanical gear systems.

Gates Carbon Drive Belt
Are you struggling to figure out the difference between choosing a regular chain vs a Gates drivebelt? Larry vs Harry made a small video explaining what these two setups can do.
The Gates Carbon Drive option for hub geared versions of the eBullitt or Bullitt upgrades the bike from a regular chain to the incredible Gates Carbon Drive system, and is retrofittable.
Constructed from carbon kevlar, the belt is incredibly strong, does not require lubricating, and really comes into its own in winter conditions especially when the roads are gritted. No more oily clothing or rusty chains to get caught up in either!
Fit for Purpose
When selecting components for the Bullitt, Larry vs Harry are careful and proud to work with some of the most quality obsessed manufacturers in the business, including Gates Carbon Drive, Shimano, TRP, Schwalbe and Abus.
The components chosen are designed to work with cargo bikes and if required, certified for use with electric assist bikes and the extra wear and tear incurred by using them.
Larry vs Harry have chosen to spec four piston brakes and 180mm rotors on all Bullitt models so that stopping quickly and effectively under load in all environments and weather conditions is maximised.
The Bullitt frame has been tested to the very highest standards available and is the benchmark in cargo bike construction. Larry vs Harry have been building, testing and riding the Bullitt for over a decade and their children have all grown up in the Bullitt, they value the safety properties it possesses highly and are proud to offer it to others.
The low centre of gravity at the heart of the Bullitt lends itself superbly to stability and ensure both cargo and passengers remain secure and safe at all times.
The stiffness and robustness of the frame ensures unwanted flex is not an issue and ensures the Bullitt tracks beautifully.
The tried and tested line of accessories like the Canopy, with its steel frame and sidebars, ensure child safety whilst the construction of BBX Sidepanel Kits and Honeycomb Boards consists of an advance aluminium lattice which maintains rigidity and stiffness.
The fabrics and materials of all the accessories have been certified for use with children and Larry vs Harry are proud of their continuing commitment to the Bullitt being the safest and most secure cargo bike on the market.
Transport your children and loved ones with ease and with a smile, both on your face and on theirs. School and grocery runs made easy and convenient, holidays and adventures made special.
The Bullitt streamlines, hastens and makes inner city business more efficient. Fact. Happy employees at street level who engage with pedestrian traffic are also fantastic ambassadors for your brand.
The eBullitt ships as standard with lights that have been certified for road use in all European markets for visibility and comply with the strictest of legislation. The aluminium kickstand is durable and stable to ensure your load remains safely upright at all times and if you regularly carry weighty goods, but you can also order a chromoly steel version for extra piece of mind.
