Velotric Fold 1

New (to me) ebike that's all over YouTube being tested. Small folder with a 750w Bafang motor for $1K. Looks like a good deal and goes 28 mph.

Ugh... Where's the link man?🤣




It's pretty good, but I'd immediately upgrade the controller, maybe the freewheel as well (since most are that crappy 14t-28t gearing that makes you wind up phantom pedalling for dear life). The fact the throttle is limited to the speed setting is a NO for me. It should allow you to hit the max of 20 mph, not be limited like that. Not good if you need that extra little bit of speed at a stoplight...

I agree, the Fold 1 is a good deal with that 750 watt motor instead of the typical 500 watt motors on most other folding ebike. Get a free front basket for the Fold 1 with code VI2X2F2 (the second character is an "eye").

Find the little "Share" arrow under the video, then copy the web address in the dialog box, paste into the comment area. It's just a matter of finding the Share arrow.
