Hi! I need some help locating the perfect mini folding e-bike
I am beyond confused as to which companies out there are carrying truly quality ebicycles. I found a company who actually appears to be making their own bikes in france for quality sake - Mobiky. But is this true? You see, I just ordered 2 bikes described as "non chinese" (because I guess Chinese automatically means lack in quality? *sarcasm*) only to find out they have been around China for years at a fraction of the price and the quality wasn't that good
There doesn't appear to be a lot of options when it comes to small foldable ebikes suitable for bus/train transport, and many of them seem to be over-circulated & over-priced cheap chinese imports with a new logo slapped onto them. I feel like there may be some great mini ebike gems available that I am not finding with google's help. Can anyone recommend a good mini ebike that fits these specs:
- Around 12mph
- Around 35lbs or less
- throttle control, not just pedal assist (throws mobiky out?)
- folds quick without tools
I have looked at the carryme ds and it is a bit too small and overpriced IMO. Also saw bikes like the "shrinker" & "BOB" which appear to be mobiky knock offs. One of the Chinese manufacturers who carried the "shrinker/bob" told me they no longer carry it due to stability issues, however I am unsure if they are the ones behind Golden Motors "Shrinker" or just another variant of the Genius/Youri 12.
Really need 2 working bikes ASAP,
I appreciate any leads or insight.
