8 Reasons to Buy the Magnum Cruiser

  • Given the robust motor, larger-than-average battery pack, and numerous excellent comfort and utility attachments, the price points represent excellent value. The comfort/utility attachments include fenders, lights, an improved saddle, and a suspension fork with lockout.
  • With a larger-than-typical seat post, heavier gauge spokes, full 36-hole rims instead of a 32-hole, and a reinforced diamond-style frame, the entire bike is designed to be heavy-duty.
  • The e-Bike isn't as noisy as some electric bikes with hub motors. 
  • Magnum has built this frame for comfort and a reduced body position.
  • You can drive comfortably and straight without having to stoop over or strain your neck or back, thanks to a tool-free flexible angle stem and tall handlebar. 
  • The rack and fenders are removable.
  • Powerful hydraulic disc brakes are standard on this e-bike: they are simpler to use than mechanical brakes and have adjustable-reach levers.
  • A 5-Volt USB charging connector is integrated into the right side of the battery pack.

5 Reasons Not to Buy the Magnum Cruiser

  • The controller box is visibly positioned in the lowest part of the downtube and is larger than usual.
  • Instead of using separate AAA batteries, the primary battery pack should have been used to power the lights.
  • The left crank arm is in the way of the kickstand and battery charging port.
  • There isn't enough area on the frame for a water bottle mount.
  • Although the battery charger is small and light, its speed is only average.

Bottom Line

Although the Cruiser comes packed with features, it doesn’t come without its drawbacks. But overall, it is a great bike for daily commutes.
