Folding Electric Bike Reviews

This type of electric bike features a frame and components that fold, rotate, or remove to improve portability and storing potential. They are popular with people who travel in RV’s, live in small apartments, or use public transportation. Despite their often small size, they are not always as lightweight due to additional frame reinforcement and similar motor and battery technology as full sized non-folding ebikes. Most folders are small or medium sized and offer an approachable mid-step or step-thru frame, making them popular for petite riders.

Tern HSD P9 Review

  • MSRP: $3,499
  • MODEL YEAR: 2021

A high-quality midtail electric cargo bike that can stand vertically to save space! Available in three colors but only one frame size.

Lighter and less expensive than the Tern GSD models, the HSD (which stands for Haul…...
