I somehow ran into this webpage:

https://velomini.com

and they where selling these neat mini folding ebikes and I was intrigued if anyone has ever used one and if they can give a review of it. It's a real simple bike and looks very solidly built and the battery is in the frame. The motor is only 180 watts but i guess it's mostly to assist your pedalling. I like mini folding bikes alot and was wondering if anyone has tried it.

My real wait is for the official electric Abike! that sucker is small and would fit in your backpack!

but that thing is only in the experimental stage and we might never see it till next year.

It's cute, I'll give it that.
Small, compact, really good for commuters to the train... IF the train station is close to your house and work.
8-12 miles distance.
$1000.
If you want a tiny bike and portability, then this is great.
This is only for a niche market tho.
12mph is SLOW.
If your needs are above, then great.
If not, then you're better off either building or buying a real ebike.

If your commute has any kind of crappy roads, I can see this bike falling apart easily.

i agree with sangesf.....most of these toys are expesnive gimmicks...

180 watts is nothing...unless you only weigh about 120lbs.....

you r better off buying a small folding bike and then putting a electric kit on it...IMHO...500 watts is the minimum i would suggest for a brushless hub motor...its always better to have more power then you need, then less power then you need.
