Gocycle experience?

Hi everyone,

My shop is going to start carrying Gocycle electric folding bikes pretty soon and I was wondering if any of you all had experience with their bikes and if there were certain things you liked/disliked.

Thanks.

Have a look here at this forum and ask away as they are very helpful and several retailers are members.

Thanks. I'll take a look there. I think I came across their forum once and was immediately lost in how technical the conversation got.

I chatted with a user in Switzerland who was very happy with it.

Personally, I'd had 1) fenders/mudguards and 2) a frame-mounted solution to carry a bag in the front la Brompton (I guess a stem-mounted Klickfix Caddy adapter does the job).

Clickfix is a great idea. They have a stem-mounted bag but there's only one option and it's pricey. So are their fenders. Will be nice to have options on bags.
