VoltBike Urban Video Review – Inexpensive Folding Electric Bike

VoltBike Urban Video Review – Inexpensive Folding Electric Bike



The VoltBike Urban is an ultra-affordable folding electric bike sold online from Canada, offers a full range of accessories including lights, fenders and a rear carry rack. Available in black or white but only one size, you get six gears with a basic Shimano Tourney TX derailleur and over sized thumb shifter. Larger 1.95″ tires and a very basic suspension fork soften the ride, standard saddle and cheap ergonomic grips further improve comfort. The rear light is not wired in like the headlight which makes it easier to forget and run out, the stem lock felt cheap and came loose easier than other products I’ve tested, no built in clasp to keep the bike folded.

    Another stellar review Court! The new 2017 eJoe now has an LCD display (which I know because I watched your latest review on it). I'm sold on the eJoe. For a few hundred more dollars it seems to be worth it. Also, in your detail review of the eJoe, the algorithms it uses for the battery assist seem to be superior to the VoltBike….smoother. I own several Dahon folding bikes so when you said the eJoe has magnets to keep the bike together when folded, that hit home. I have one non-Dahon folding bike with no magnets and its a pain to keep folded. I use bungee cords. Yuck! What I like most about your reviews is you don't try to impress people with flashy videos. You are honest and point out all the important aspects and features. Very thorough. Very much appreciated.

    I hope somebody can help me. I'm looking for a electric folding bike. but I have some things what I want on it. thats that the battery in the frame and that it has a display (digital) so I can see what my speed is etc. and with suspension. But I wonder of is there one for cheap. I saw Enzo en Ejoe ebike but they are expensive. So I hope that somebody can help me out

    trigger shifters are considered higher end over grip shifters.

    I'm shopping for an affordable electric folding bike and I'm having a hard time deciding between this bike and the Energie Cycles excursion 2.0. Which one would you recommend?

    These reviews are really informative and well produced – I find myself binge watching and I don't even cycle! Could you recommend a bike or things to look out for on a folding e-bike able to handle uk canal towpaths and some hills? So concrete, gravel, thick mud and cobbles!?

    "Court, I noticed that this bike for 2017 comes with alloy rims and a new frame design like the E-Joe. Price still the same

    Love your reviews – i'm new into e-bikes and bought a Sondors Thin on indiegogo/kickstarter – your reviews are awesome for people not sure where to invest their money! There are several new folding bikes on Indiegogo now – all highly affordable (under $1000) so will be great to see if you get to review those (MATE (Denmark) CoolPeds (USA)!

    The new version of the Voltbike Urban has a bigger front chainring and an improved handlebar locking mechanism. It basically addresses all of his concerns, AND it costs exactly the same.

    I'm looking for just such a model. 8n are Italian, I need 2 VoltBike and serve me in early September, in Sydney. In 20 days, in fact, my wife and I totally booked. They lack the VoltBike. We find them in Sydney. How / where can we order them? We pay online, if we ensure delivery in the first week of September.
    Cheers,
    Mary and Francesco

    Who knew that the crappy little basic lcd that came with my kayman flash+ a year ago is now being called an Advanced LCD Ebike computer 😉 I will admit that the walk mode is kinda cool, on my other bikes with the slightly more advanced kt lcd3 screens, when you lift off the button it stops power, whereas on this screen it stays on until you brake. Great for riding with my dog, (we call it 'doggie speed," 🙂
