    Suggest Ebike for older riders

    We’re new to this forum and haven’t bought an Ebike as yet. I’m looking for suggestions - sorry if this is a long post. About us - I’ve just turned 60 and my wife is two years younger than me … which makes her “25 again”. We live in Central Minnesota and only ride May - September because...

    Newbie in Georgia

    Hi All, i'm excited to join the EBR community and hopefully soon purchase my 1st e-bike. If anyone has tips on great folding bikes I'd love to hear from you. I've enjoyed the search features but one thing that was missing for me is searching by personal height. I'd also be willing to pay a...

    Handlebar upgrade for folding Fat Bike

    Hi guys, long time EBR fan here, looking to see if it's possible and safe to change the handle bars on my Igo Royal. It's a folding Fat tire bike, a Rad mini clone of sorts. I want to have swept back handle bars like on the Aventon Pace 500 or Perego City Commuter. Can it be done? Any advice...

    Folding bike - want it all.

    Price not a consideration. I want it all and expect to pay more - Folding 20” fat tire with hidden battery - less than 50 lbs. 60 max. Very important as I am older. - Hyd brakes - Front suspension, rear also if possoble - Torque sensing. Cadence too if that works but definitely Torque. -...

    Evelo Dash folding bike

    Looking for information/reviews on this bike. It seems to be on the lighter side for a multi terrain folding ebike. Does anyone have any experience with it? It has a lot of nice features, but it is also not a cheap folding bike. It seems to also have the smallest motor and battery? Is it...

    Looking for a folding ebike

    Hi all, first time posting, long time reader :) I'm looking for a folding ebike primarily for commuting. I'm sick of getting my work clothes sweaty or having to shower at work. I've decided on folding for convenience transporting it on public transit and in the trunk of Ubers/Lyfts (1-2...

    New 2020 VoltBike Mariner

    Editing this post to point to the newer thread that I made about the 2020 VoltBike Mariner. For some reason after I added this post yesterday, it disappeared, so I created the other one. Then this one appeared today. So I removed the pics and content, as it was largely a duplicate. Here's the...

    1500 miles on the Qualisports Volador

    Howdy folk, Every now and again I make a bike video. I have been riding the Volador since April, 2019, basing my purchase on Court and Sam's review. It's been a fab choice for me and I've done a few upgrades along the way. Here is my 1500 mile report, featuring an original soundtrack with the...

    Review: My OneMotor drive (formerly Shareroller)

    I've now had my 1M for a little over a week or so. I'll try to discuss it in a logical sequential manner. First, packaging was excellent, everything had a cut out in a padded box. There were no instructions in the box, but that's because Jeff hasn't completed them yet and early backers are...

    Should my folding e-bike creak constantly at the joint?

    Hi, I just purchased an Enzo folding electric bike and my first impression is.. not good. -The bike arrived damaged at the folding joint, with a significant chunk of paint chipped off. The gear lever and flick-bell also had paint chipped off. -The fenders are bent out of alignment. -The...

    Choosing between folding bikes & the local shops that sell them

    It'll be a commuting bike that will be stored in my trunk, as I live in a walk-up without an elevator. My commute is ~4 mi each way with ~1.5mi long hill, and I used to do it on my pedal-powered hybrid but now I get too sweaty for the workplace & need another option. I'm currently deciding...

    Best bike lock for a fat tire

    I'm looking to purchase some locks for my new bike. I have an E-lux Sierra which is a folding fat bike with an extra fat frame to hide the battery. I currently have one Kryptonite NY U-Lock but I don't think that'll work at all with the new bike. E-lux also hooked me up with Kryptonite Keeper...

    Possible suspension mod?

    I just ordered the E-lux Sierra which is a folding fat tire bike. But unlike other of its kind, this model doesn’t come with suspensions in the front so I was just curious if there is any type of mod capable on these bike frames. I realize the fat tires alone may absorb some impact but I’d love...

    Tern Vektron - a.k.a. "Hill Mitigator!"

    The steep hills to our house had finally defeated me over the years. I accepted that I was done dealing with hills. I hadn't been on my bike for a few years and yet I still missed the joys of riding. I read a lot of Court's reviews and tried out about a dozen e-bikes. Being a mere 5'1", I...

    Wish EBR would focus more on "Folding" the folding electric bikes...

    Love the site and the reviews in general are excellent. The only thing missing in the review formula is not nearly enough time is spent folding the bike into its compact form and walking around with it folded. Have not seen a single folding bike review do that yet and its the raison d'être of...
