Yep , those are nice but the Rad Mini is less than half the price at $1299 vs $3299 for Gocycle.
I rode mine first time today and was impressed with performance , ease of folding and quality.

Anyone else weigh in on these Ebikes? We have been looking over the last year...weights vary as do the distance and speed. Also, price... Last months Trailer Life had an article listing several, but no real comparison. Would be good to get some input from you'all!

I like the Luna cycle we got (20" folder, about 37lbs w/battery). 20+ mile range.

The Gocycle has all its inner workings contained to prevent grease from getting on stuff.
EST 50 mile range and 20mph top speed. Folds up nice and tight.

Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten meaning....

Very nice.
We were first interested when we saw electric bikes at the Salem Int. rally. Our XT250 has to work for us right now - two up capable.

Evelo

I have had my Evelo Quest Max folding for a year now and I am very happy with it. There are so many e-bikes now I doubt you can get an adequate comparison of the choices. I chose mine because of mid-drive, CVT, disc brakes, Gates belt, and separate throttle. I carry an extra battery on trips so range is never an issue. It makes a trip to the campground office or distant facilities simple. I have not used it on mountain roads as much as I had hoped mostly due to vehicle traffic.

We saw the bikes at Salem as well, and took an impressive test ride. A caution - regulations are not consistent state to state. We found that the bikes at Salem were considered motorcycles in FL as they do not have pedals. We would have had to get motorcycle licenses (almost $200 each for a class) and would have to have motorcycle insurance. There are also limits on motor HP. Also, some states are becoming more lenient regarding where they can be ridden, some are becoming more strict.

We ended up buying Zizzo Euromini Liberte folding bikes. If we decide we need the electric capability there are several conversion kits on the market.

If you have a standard bike in good shape, you can convert it with a Hilltopper kit for about $600. I did it 12 years ago and it still runs great. I am on my fourth set of lead acid batteries (nowadays they sell Lithium Ion battery packs).

Conversion takes about half an hour and you can convert back anytime.

I don't appreciate your "wisdom" quote about quality vs. price.
I am just a guy entering the eBike arena and entry price is certainly a consideration.
Keep your snarky comments to yourself.

I have the same bike. Like it for all of the above reasons.
