    FYI, those bikes you got sounded very nice and had you passed I may have been interested as an upgrade. Although I did get my folding bikes out today for the Grand Haven Trip soon, that are pretty nice and having the padded bag keeps them like new.

    Saw this bike on a loopers deck in Penetanguishene yesterday. Electric looks nice but pretty small battery pack and underpowered according to the owner at 250 watts 20190724_132852.jpg

    We purchased two Jupiter bikes - electric and are very very small -- 16 x 21 when folded
    weigh about 22 lbs 2 hour for a full charge and you get 10 miles and up to 15 miles per hour
    about 800 dollars

    I've started to look at Rad folding e-bikes and they look sweet!

    I’ve been looking at them too. As well as the Sounders, which look nice too.

    I'll take a look at the Sounders,but the Rad reviews go back several years and most are GREAT reviews.

    I rode a Sounders fat tire this afternoon. Turns out a friend has had one since 2017. It was my first ride on an ebike and it was awesome. I wouldn’t get a fat tire though b/c it seems it’s just added weight that’s only gonna make it harder to transport.

    My friend has been happy with it, and has put over a thousand miles on it too. However his one complaint was that almost everything is property, so any repairs down the road will be tough.

    I bought a new Electra Townie Go two years ago for $$$$ .I developed a tumor in my neck and the bike is sitting in our office brand new.It has the retro styling and is a beautiful bike.If I decide to go with a folding bike for convenience I'll make someone a deal on the Go.PM me if interested.
