VoltBike Urban Video Review – Inexpensive Folding Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/voltbike/urban-folding/ 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.

“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

Stephen Cho says:

I’ve had this for a few months now. Yes the chain does drop when you up-shift rapidly 2 gears (or more). I swapped out the silly stock kid’s chain-ring for a 60t and it makes a world of a difference. You are correct about the folding stem… it does need to be tightened over time. My rear light got stuck on “on” and is no longer used. Other than that the bike has survived heavy usage during the winter and I am happy so far. If I was voltbike I would switch to a front motor design and go with an internally geared hub. Being able to shift while stopped is so underrated IMO especially in urban commuting.

Court, please do a review on their 20″ fat tire bike… It’s a few $100 cheaper than the trail viper but comes with a 48v battery with even more WH’s

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,” 🙂

WhiskeyThieves says:

How much customization can I get out of these bikes? Is it possible to get it in more of a road bike seating position?

Florencio de Ocampo Reyes says:

Looking at the Mate ebike. Do you have a review on this? Let me know.Thanks.

Francesco Capaccioni says:

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.

Jon Auty says:

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!?

Nice Price! I would like to see a low priced electric folding bicycle with 16″ wheels that folds in thirds.

I talked to Sam on the phone; Sam is absolutely Awesome !!! I ordered this bike… (Sam does not sell it but was more than happy to talk to me about it). I did Tons of research; best bike for the money… anything lacking on it I can get around it easily. “I found my Thrill”

Marionne Patrick says:

im wondering how heavy is stahn?

scriptedhuman says:

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.

Alc Anon says:

Marco Vancouver says:

We’re truly blessed to have Voltbike right here in Vancouver. Been kicking the hell out of my Yukon for two months(bought it the day I saw your review.), absolute tank. Would be nice if Voltbike came out with a high power skateboard

Szabi Sabrina says:

Denise OReilly says:

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)!
