There is now a link for $100 off the price of the Evelo Galaxy 500 with this discount code: REF-RV0LL3D5KXYPQ2

Edit... it appears that you now get a $200 discount and get a $100 gift card mailed later. I have no affiliation with this bike or promotion.

Surprised to see price same as Aurora Limited.
I'd welcome the 17 pound lighter frame when loading/unloading from vehicle. Other than the Galaxy 500 being slightly smaller difficult to see advantage over Aurora Limited - - - - unless one needs the smaller size.


Aurora - 750 motor vs Galaxy 500 - 500w
Aurora front suspension - Galaxy 500 - nope

seems like Aurora is a bargain or Galaxy should be priced lower. What am I missing?
