  1. Wait!!?? No Sondors Fold or Fold X!!?? 🤦🏽‍♂️ Come On Man! 😁

  2. What about RATTAN?

  3. Hey are you going to do a Top 5 Cargo Bikes list?

  4. 3000 for bicycle 😂 crazy

  5. Andrés Di yorio April 9, 2021 @ 11:18 pm

    And the wallke x3 pro ?? I would love if you review it 🙂

  6. what kind of battery do these bikes use? are they allowed on planes?

  7. Pedego Latch?

  8. Can you get hold of a Vello bike + titan to review? Thanks

  9. You forgot the jetson pro

  10. In the UK the second bike is mirider. Which is a great bike.

  11. Be worth noting their availability. Lectric is only available in US and Canada for example

  12. Product reviewer uk April 9, 2021 @ 11:22 pm

    These bikes are highly illegal in the uk believe it or not

  13. The seat on the last bike looks useless

  14. Check out the new Yamee Fat Bear 750S. It replaced the Rattan Fat Bear with tons of improvements. For $1800 you get hydraulic brakes, regenerative motor with range of 100 miles, working tail light, real headlight, fenders, rack, a color screen with a USB port, etc. I was going to go for Lectrix XP but this bike stole my eye. I bought two for my fiance and I. Going to use them on our honeymoon at Hilton Head I’m stoked about it.

  15. Just found your channel and it is exactly what I was looking for. Since some brands have the thick/fat tires, it would be interesting which one works the best on different surfaces, like sand and grass. I specifically am looking for a (foldable) beachcuiser to go surfing small enough to store in the van but good enough to go to the waves a bit off the beaten track. Cheers

  16. It would have been great to get max HxWxD measurements when folded for each bike. Next review for foldable bikes maybe? A lot of van lifers and just those that are interested in the storage aspect would’ve found it useful. 🙂 Great video. Def subbed.

    how do you feel about the rattan fat bear Plus

  18. Stay far away from a Swagtron. I purchased the EB-5 and after charging the battery a few times my bike has a range of 2.5 miles. It is also the hardest bike to pedal I have ever tried. When the battery dies after a few miles I have to push it home because it is just too hard to pedal. Thanks Swagtron. You’re the best at making paperweights.

  19. How did he have a camera following him with that perspective?! Someone riding with him on a GoPro or how,anyone know?

  20. I think there has to be different categories for folders. One such would be what I call the Apartment Ebike. Light because of stairs. Small because of storage needs in at least some apartments. These bikes won’t be fat tires but they can be different perhaps smaller yet a bit wider than normal. Ask example I got the Swagtron EB5 Pro Plus. It folds to a small, relatively light package perfect for moving up and down stairs. Easy to find a place for it in my apartment and at 499.00 it gets my running around town needs very well. However I’m sure I likely missed a few options I might have considered if I had found them in my search. So a similar review process by you guys might be interesting to that segment of the market and me:)

    Review the Rheno ebikes!

  22. Next time you better warn us living outside North America upfront that these bikes can be shipped only to the US/Canada. Wasted time watching ):

  23. d you know if any of these bike are waterproof? i live in oregon and its rains a lot

  24. All these foldable ebikes weigh so much I could hardly lift them into my car trunk.

  25. I like your channel…fast, not much talking and all we need to know… thanks

  26. Lectric xp seems like the only way to go saving my money for one

  27. The Official Channel April 9, 2021 @ 11:49 pm

    Swagtron says 350 watt motor

  28. I got a Lectric XP Step-thru about six months ago and I freaking love it. I find myself coming up with excuses to take it for a ride it so fun. Listen to the man….

  29. Hey Micah… What happen to the ELUX Sierra GT (Sport)!! I feel this is one of the best overall portable folding bikes on the market today coming in at approx $1995… 2020/2021 priced.

    More expensive than some but much more reasonable than the pricier high-end models you have shown. This bike has several ways to customize and make it your own (not just a cookie-cutter bike)… It comes in several (8 or more hot color options) and two versions (V1/V2), includes (Mozo Front Suspension shocks), seat post buffer (2 seat options as well), front & rear fenders, and integrated lights (front/rear/braking), a 750-watt motor (900 peak) married to a 48-volt removable battery, and all are pretty much standard equipment for this impressive bike at no additional cost!. Can easily top out at 26 mph…some get up to 28 mph. 5 Hr full charging, on bike or battery off bike, and has a range of 25 miles plus… The company is out of the OC in Southern Cal… so homegrown …

    Amazed and bewildered this bike didn’t make your top 5 folding e-bikes list….?? And while I do really like the cost to feature performance benefit of the Lextric XP bike (actually a great bike for the buck)… the Elux Sierra is a significant upgrade… in my opinion.

    Thanks for your review…

  30. ive got 2 fiido d11 and they are trash

  31. You left out 2 pieces of information that are huge when it comes to folding bikes – 1. How much does it weigh (yes, you mentioned for 1 of them) and 2. How compact is the fold and how easily can it be moved when it’s folded. Since most folding bike people need the bike to fit in a small space and/or on transit or a car, those things are important. Rad power is the biggest US e-bike company? That’s news. I do hear their advertisements on a podcast I listen to. Impressive. But at 68lbs, I’d say their folder is less impressive.

  32. Konstantin Lobanov April 9, 2021 @ 11:54 pm

    How about KTM Fold?

  33. Argh, why is it always the expensive ebikes that I want the most? I really want that Gocycle one.

  34. Dominic Darpino April 9, 2021 @ 11:57 pm

    Micah – thanks for the shoutout on the lectric xp comment! I’m glad to see it was included in this video for foldabes

  35. SIESIE CHAMPION April 9, 2021 @ 11:59 pm

    All expensive af

  36. Hahaha summer of 2020 fuck you.

  37. Would any one recommend Lectric xp for commuting like am I able to take it on the train

  38. I hate folding ebikes with huge exposed battery.
    I like the ones that are hidden like, in the seat post.
    Also don’t like the fat tires which are very heavy when lifting

    into you car & feels unwelcome in asphalt bike trails.
    By the way, test also the Qualisports ebikes.

  39. Just ordered a Rattan foldable e-bike.. Hope I made the right choice 🙂

  40. Lectric xp or the new Gotrax EBE4?

  41. You forgot to mention that the Fiido D11, launched by Indiegogo, weighs just 12,9 kgs (28,44 pounds) without the detachable seat-post battery, which is a plus, especially for “weak old ladies” like me 😜 who live on a third floor with no lift! Women also ride bikes, you know? Besides, as a backer, I’m also getting a T-Shirt, the mudguards and a bluetooth lock! And I also got a spare seat-post battery at a special price. Everything for around 900€ (1000$), shipping to Spain included. I CAN’T WAIT! 😁🤩

  42. There’s no way they’re selling that #2 for $1299. There are $1000 e-bikes better than that.

  43. Should I buy radrover plus or rad mini?

  44. I’d been curious about the difference between Addmotor M-150 P7 and R7. I just bought one for my father as they’re on promotion now. Could you test it out??

  45. Thank you for featuring the little e-bike that could – my fiido L2. Glad it made your list.
