  • I really like the folding design with the electric bike… great for combining trips using a small car for urban distances and the folding bike for shorter commutes. Excellent design fills a needed gap in drive/ride combination and utilizes high tech to keep weight down and recharging .., when will your unit be available to purchase in Ohio – USA?
