Gocycle G3 Video Review – High-Tech Folding Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/gocycle/g3/ The Gocycle G3 is a futuristic folding electric bike with lightweight Magnesium frame, mid-body suspension bumper and enclosed chain and wires for clean transport and storage, the chan is not expos. Now available in four color choices, a 25% larger battery pack and improved wheel locking system vs. the older G2 model from Gocycle, three-speed internally geared hub with auto electronic shifting. A daytime running light “tube” helps keep you seen along with reflective tires and optional Bush & Müller LED Lights, optional fenders, front bag and water-resistant “docking station” for travel. You get what you pay for and this product costs a pretty penny (especially with accessories), the gearless motor produces some cogging drag when unpowered and whirring noise when operating. The Gocycle products use marine grade parts and are excellent for use on boats, yachts, rv’s and airplanes because they are light and stay very clean. They can fit a wide range of riders due to an adjustable stem and angled seat tube with longer seat post.

The lights flashing back and forth remind me of Kitt on Knight Rider not IBM… oh I mean HAL.

Gocycle says:

The front wheel has a freewheel so there is in fact no drag from the motor when not in use. The wheels are very light and have low rotational mass, a key benefit of compact wheels.  Spinning a Gocycle wheel is very different from spinning a larger wheel – the larger wheel will tend to appear to run for a longer time, but that is not an accurate comparison. The front wheel is slowing down more than the rear due to the rubber seals of the high quality Japanese bearings used in the front wheel drive system. These do free up over time. The wheels hold the world speed record from 2013 set for human power only at 83 mph. Compact wheels have many advantages over larger wheels. At any rate, the Gocycle is a very easy rolling product with zero motor drag.

4500 dollars I was thinking no more than 3000 you can get a decent range of bikes for that.

Bruce Woodford says:

Please fix the wind noise.

Thanks for featuring his helmet at the end. It’s pretty cool especially for people like me who ride home at night time in the city (I’m in Toronto, Canada). Visibility and communication between drivers on the road are important for bike safety!

Michigan Mister says:

can you board a plane with this? I could see me taking this on my yearly Florida trips. nice review.

Nisco Racing says:

All electric bikes should learn from this bike, you see no wires at all. No wires clutter in the front, it’s so clean!
I was really hoping they would have made a full bike by now, the tech on this bikes is like 10 years in the future!

Vegas Dice says:

The dude did NOT look comfortable on camera.

SmollyGT says:

DogDaysofSanford says:

lack of belt drive is the only thing keeping this bike from being perfect

Christchurch Ddriver says:

Very Complex fold.

I’m glad you got around to reviewing the G3! I’ve got about 400 miles on mine so far and it’s been a great bike. I love that it’s only @ 36 lbs as I carry it up and down stairs with ease. The portability of it really opens up the possibilities and it feels really well made. I would love a 4th gear on it, however.

Seb K says:

There are a few riders here in London with these bikes (go figure) but although they look cool and are very high tech they are weak .

IronMongoose1 says:

With all the unique parts and design, how hard will it be to get the thing serviced?

Darren Mckay says:

I own one in in black.. Very funky bike, I get lots of admiring looks! I commute in central London, and these bikes are mostly owned by affluent city folk who can afford to buy it. I watch all your vids, but this bike is Top! would not choose another bike over this one.. you can take it anywhere in the world with travel case! fashionable and very clued up to the people in the know. Thanks for giving it props.. 🙂

Mandurath says:

Enjoyed the video. That is a nice looking bike. I can see that it wouldn’t matter much most of the time, but at speed in the wet, would those slick tires cause an issue?
