    Outstanding features – Great looking
    After a comprehensive research, I came across this electric bike which stood up head and shoulder above their competitors in that price range. It had all the features I was looking for while looking great. The bike which was shipped across the nation was well packaged and arrived undamaged. It was fully assembled and ready to go for a test drive. Unfortunately, the battery charger was defective, which is a rarity, but the vendor immediately took care of the problem and sent another unit by overnight shipping. Their attitude and attentiveness have increased my confidence in their after sale service.
    I am looking forward to years of enjoyment riding this high-tech bike.

    Better than my $2000 electric bike
    We bought this magnificent fabulous electric bike at a home show here in Fort Lauderdale yesterday.We took it for test drive today which is Saturday and boy are we blown away, I also have another bike I bought from another company 2 yrs ago and my wife green bike is faster better put together than what I paid for the $2000 Electric bike

    Miles Ahead of the Competition
    The bike was well packaged, arrived in perfect condition. Per the instructions I charged the battery before using the bike. I rode it to the Greenway and rode 20 miles. Mostly flat with a slight uphill grade for 10 miles out, slight downhill grade on the return 10 miles. The battery still had a good charge left, even though I did most of the trip at 20 mph, smiling all the way. Rode again today and put on another 5 miles. The battery still had some juice left after the ride.

    A quality bike, and a great choice for the commuter, or just for fun rides. Exactly what I was hoping for. I believe that 40-50 miles on a charge would be possible if pedal assist was used exclusively, instead of the ‘twist and go’. This is just about the most fun you can have on 2 wheels!

    Happy 1st Day with this new, quality Bike
    I received today the shipping and it turned my garage into a snow-like experience. The packing was very good with lots and lots of styrofoam flakes. it was more work to remove all the styrofoam flakes than putting the bike together. But it’s all good because it protected the bike well. It arrived with only a minor scratch. The battery was already about 3/4 full loaded and I took it for a first ride. The handbook is very genetic and was little helpful. But most was easy to figure out on my own. The quality of the bike is very good. If Apple would build a bike, it could be this one! Every part seems from good quality. After riding it 2 miles I got a big, happy smile in my face. After about 6 miles the humming, low motor noise became even a bit quieter. Two things I noticed could be better for me: I am 6’3″ tall, slim, with size 34 long legs. For me the seat is missing about 1-2 inch to the perfect high. But the handle bar is very nice high and good adjustable. The hand grips are very nice too. The throttle is a thumb lever and I like that better than the twist throttle on my prior, 3 year old electrical eZIP-Bike. For my taste the gears could be higher, meaning, starting with the 3rd gear as 1st gear and having 2 more gears after the 6th gear. The current 6th gear wants me to shift up if I go 20 km/h or faster. Pedaling at 25-30 km/h becomes just to fast. I still give it 5 stars for the quality and fun of the bike. Shipping was very quick. Ordered weekend and had it on Tuesday.

    Love it. Good for unpaved, hilly terrain as well as pavement. Solid but heavy.
    Have had this bike for six months. Use it on unpaved, mountain roads with no problem. Plenty of power. Sturdy. Feels secure. Electronics work great. Needed some minor adjustments coming out of the box with the gears. There was a question about the latch and how it works. I include some photos. You lift the latch, push in and then lift the whole thing up before bending the bike in half. The latch fits snuggly and firmly into place and feels secure. I have never had a problem with it. The bike is easy enough to fold but is heavy. I would not recommend it for anyone thinking of storing it flights of stairs above ground level. I fold it to put in my car (hatchback) with no problem. I also appreciate the back suspension on the unpaved roads.

    better than more expensive bikes
    I wanted to share my experience with Green Bike and Rose at Bikexpress. I was impressed with their service and care after the purchase.
    I searched for a fold able electric bike, and found Green Bike to offer the highest quality, best brakes, suspension and gears and strong motor, better than many other more expensive bikes.
    I runs smooth due to the full suspension even over dirt paths.
    I outfitted the bike with BV all weather handlebar quick release DSLR camera bag, which I use for all kinds of things, and Axiom Seymour DLX 45 Pannier Set , grey/black , from Amazon.
    I love to go to Farmers Market and load the bags with up to 40 pound of stuff, and even if it is on just one side I still have great balance, perhaps because the center of gravity is low to the ground.
    Because of the strong motor, I feel a strong boost going up a hill, like being pushed from behind, and feel like a kid again. ………….. zooming along ……………..

    Five stars for the wonderful customer service by Greenbike.
    Bought this in January. Didn’t get to try it out until May.
    After about an hour of riding, the rear rim cracked at the place where it was drilled for the valve stem.
    A couple of local bike shops declined to build a new wheel (something to be aware of).
    So, in desperation, I called Greenbike. They were quick to promise to send a replacement wheel, and, to my delight, actually followed through.
    They even paid for shipping back the defective part.
    Still haven’t ridden it a lot, but do know that it’s pretty well built, and the suspension actually makes it a much smoother ride than my rigid mountain bike.
    So, five stars for wonderful customer service.

    So impressed with the quality
    Ive had my new bike for two weeks and so impressed with the quality. I’m getting older and this bike has given me some wonderful freedom back. I go on 25 mile bike rides twice a day if I want, and it’s an attention getter

    Great bike for the commuter who deals with wind, hills or a child trailer.
    I preface this review with the statement that I don’t like day one reviews but I’ve spent about 3 hours tinkering with the bike so the most relevant feedback I have about this bike is fresh in my mind. First, I would rate this bike 4.5 out of 5 if I could. Secondly, if I have any issues in the next 6 to 12 months, I will return here and edit my review.

    My background is commuting 200 days / year on a Novara mountain bike since 2009. The GreenBike bike is a godsend. Tired of riding into work hot and sweaty because of a long incline, wind and/or child trailer, the electric assist basically mitigates these issues by taking 90% of the workload.

    The Undesirable:
    Box arrived with a hole in it and there was significant wear on the hinge of the frame. While material is worn off, the majority of the impact is cosmetic. This also isn’t the seller’s fault.
    Springs in the folding pedals are inconsistent. One pedal is difficult to fold and the spring feels jammed, the other pedal is easy to fold and it doesn’t appear to lock in all the way which will likely result in reduced life span.
    I had to calibrate brake pads upon arrival. Both front and rear were rubbing when brakes weren’t applied.
    The manual needs some work. For example, the front and back lights come in when the backlight to the electric motor is turned on, this is not clearly stated any where that I could find.
    Bike is definitely heavy but that’s the cost of the capability it brings.

    The good:
    Frame seems beafy. Welds look good, paint is thick, there are guards over the gears and main sprocket. The electric assist works very well. Zero complaints here. It kicks in after roughly one full revolution of the main drive sprocket. It has a lot of torque, so take my advise and start with level 2 assist and move it up once you are already in motion.
    Tires appear to be good quality and designed for all season use. Be prepared to air these babies up, mine were empty upon arrival.
    The frame suspension extends the frame on this bike enough that a rear pannier can be mounted with out my heels kicking it.
    Kick stand stabilizes the bike well.
    Mounting a Thule Chariot was easy as the stock rear axle bolt is very long. However, it is about 1 mm larger in diameter than my trailer mounting bracket so I spent waaayyy too much time filing and grinding.
    Bike was easy to adjust to fit my riding style. Stock seat is pretty comfortable, although it may not be very durable.
    Fenders are installed very well and appear high quality with guards over the areas that are most likely to be damaged.
    Electric drive system is installed flawlessly and operates very intuitively. Applying brakes deactivates electric drive as does coasting.
    Front and rear suspension really take out sharpness of riding on rougher roads and sidwalks.
    Very comfortable ride and surprisingly easy to pedal without electric assist
    Folding is pretty intuitive. Despite all the important hinge points being quick disconnect, It takes some real effort to

    Room for improvement:
    A center kickstand that raises the rear off the ground would be awesome. It would help with maintenance and mitigate the concerns I have with this thing falling over/rolling down hill when I park on an incline
    Shock absorber on the seat post
    Blinking lights

    ****week 1 update****
    The bike is a solid commuter. I have put 35 miles on it this week in Corvallis. I have had it at velocitis as high as 26 mph and as low as 6 mph during a climb. One ride was exceptionally windy (33 mph gusts) with a trailer and child in tow. Users will have to adjust to downshifting for stops and reducing power to 0 or 1 in precarious situations. Awesome bike. If it holds up through PNW winter this will have my endorsemen.

    Issues I have noticed:
    Bike is moderately unstable. Not sure if its wheel base, the small wheel diameter or the massive torque coming from rear but it is not as solid as my 26″ MTB.
    The rear is just too heavy; if I am standing to accelerate from a stop, I sometimes pop a wheelie at speed level 2.
    The gearing components are around the higher end of low grade. I experience infrequent slippage between gears 3 and 5 and it never lands on gears 3 or 4 without some massaging.
    Climbing long steep hills while towing is a concern. This a function of the available wattage and the bike gearing. I was going 6 mph on a steep climb and I was afraid the pedals couldn’t handle the stress of me assisting, unless I dropped to 1st gear. Dropping gear of course further increases stress on the power plant.
    Braking power is a concern for the weight while towing. This was not an issue on my MTB. It needs bigger brakes or hydraulic brakes.

    Additional recommendations for the manufacturer (or users):
    Use a front hub power system and make the bike an 18 speed.
    Use a more robust bell. It sounds great but the plastic hammer seems flimsy.
    Install non folding pedals if you live in a hilly area.
    Install a more robust braking system (larger pads and disc or hydraulic)

    I wish I could give this 20 stars
    I can not tell you how much I love this bike! First, I’ve never been a “biker” type person — nor a frequent outdoorsy type. Since getting this bike, I’ve gone over 200 miles and I’m still loving it! The ride is smooth, the battery lasts for quite a long time — although it does depend on how much pedal assist you use! I like this bike because if you feel like doing more exercise you can do a low pedal assist and if you don’t want to go up a steep hill you can do the highest pedal assist! I’ve gotten it up to about 22 mph so far. I love the throttle feature, because sometimes I get tired out on the second half of the ride, and I can use the throttle intermittently. I also like how adjustable everything is, depending on your needs. My height is 5’2” and this bike isn’t too tall for me as long as I keep the seat in the lowest position. I like it because I can also keep up on rides, where I otherwise would probably be behind.

    A word of caution: If you’re new to hybrid bikes – especially folding ones, it’s important that you check to make sure you’ve fully locked all locations so they are secure. I’ve mistakenly thought that they were locked, and found out they weren’t. Another thing is, when you first get it, the boost from the motor can be a bit surprising at first and you have to remember that when you have your bike in pedal assist mode, and you are not on your bike, don’t press the pedals– or your bike will leave without you! There is also a learning curve (at least for me), on making sure you slow down at intersections or stop signs. For a while I had some disgraceful dismounts, but I’ve been getting better!

    I love the tires of this bike too. They are sturdy, well made, and pretty zippy looking. Since getting this bike, I have become a bike nerd (even if I’m technically cheating by having a hybrid) and have enjoyed long rides on trails. It also gives me confidence because I’m a Type 1 diabetic, and I worry about low blood sugar, and while I carry sugar with me, sometimes after a low blood sugar, I can get very very tired– having this bike is reassuring, because I can always use the throttle for a while, while my blood sugar is getting better.

    I recently listened to a podcast on mountain biking, and they were discussing hybrid or e-bikes, and suggesting that it is a form of “cheating” or taking the “easy way out.” I have to disagree 100% on this. This little bike still gives me plenty of exercise, it has helped control my blood sugar to better levels, and it has encouraged me to commute to work, bike to the local stores, where I otherwise would have drove a car. It has also gotten me out of staying inside all the time, and I am finding that if I miss a day on my bike, I get very grumpy.

    If you think you’d like a little boost while biking, you should NOT feel guilty about getting this bike. In my opinion it does not make you any less of a biker, having an e-bike. If it increases your activity, boosts your mood, helps the environment, gets you out of the house and into the fresh air, then it’s worth it. I never thought I’d do as much biking as I’m doing now— and that’s saying a lot for me, because I’ve never been a highly active person.

    I love this bike. I wish I could give it 20 stars.

    Great first ride. I’m pretty happy.
    I just took it for a 25 mile ride around town and for an electric bike, that’s not bad at all. I did a mixture of the various settings to get a good feel for it and depleted the battery to a quarter. I tended to coast or turn the battery off down hills, rolled around with just the bike peddling for me some and raced at the max speed too. Overall the display for the battery is a little confusing because it seems to indicate draw and power level at the same time. It’s very confusing. All the same, I have sunburns on my arms and while that stings, I also got to cruise around a lot and that was pretty fun. Pretty sure that it could run for fifty miles at the lowest pedal assist the whole way, otherwise I’d say it’d reach fifty kilometers easily. However, kilometers is what the thing registers in.
    It seems that while it would be entirely possible to pedal past 20 mph, and I did, it’s maintaining that for too long that would be difficult. I believe with more exercise that it would be easy. However, this thing goes up hills like it’s nothing. I pedaled up a steep hill that always left me breathless with my mountain bike and I was fine with a mere level 1 pedal assist.

    If you’re using this as a regular commuter, while it can certainly make bigger trips on its own, I’d strongly recommend using public transport as a compliment to this. You can probably get anywhere no problem in reasonable time.
    You’re not getting the sun and the moon, but you’re getting pretty dang good.

    Also, not important, but I caught a lot of pokemon on this thing.

    Great e-bike
    I purchased two of these for my wife and I. They are a lot of fun and we enjoy them very much. I did a lot of research before making this purchase and read many reviews of e-bikes before doing so. I also wanted a folding bike for portability. I am very satisfied with this bike. It is very well constructed and solidly built. All of the components on the bike of of good quality. I am over 225 lbs and I was concerned about the strength of the bike and components. No worry here the bike has little to flex, goes over bumps great with the front and rear suspension and the brakes work great. The motor power is just fine. Gets me up hills no problem. Realistically speaking I recharge the bike about every 25 miles. It could probably go a little longer than that but I haven’t tried yet to fully run the battery down. That’s not too bad considering my weight and the fact that where I ride is somewhat hilly. Flat land and less weight will get you more. The Samsung battery on this is a big plus. From what I have read the Samsung is much better than the Chinese knockoffs. The ride is comfortable but I did replace the seat with a Serfas Cruiser seat because my 62 year butt hasn’t seen a bike seat in many years. If you regularly ride bikes the stock seat will probably suit you. This is the only folding bike that I found that has both front and rear suspension. The suspension really works quite well.Bikes Xpress and GreenBikeUSA is great. I had a problem with the motor on one of the bikes. I called them up and I had a replacement motor and wheel in only two time. Note that the Bafang motors on these are said to be very reliable so this was unusual. The important thing is that Green Bikes responded right away and took care of the problem with no hassle.

    good maneuverability, battery lasts for a long time
    Works as expected: enjoyable rides, responsive control, folds and fits inside a car, good maneuverability, battery lasts for a long time, upright position helps with viewing the surroundings, moderately priced for an electric bike. It would be nice to have more levels of assist, and I hear that a new model will have it.

    GreenBike USA GB5 compared to Sondors Fat Bike

    Since it is cold and rainy right now in LA, I thought I’d take some time off riding and write up a review of my wife’s Green Bike USA GB5 E-bike compared to my Sondors Fat E-bike while it’s still fresh in my mind. I’ve had my Sondors bike for about a month and my wife got her Green Bike GB5 about a week ago. We are both casual riders just looking for fun and exercise.

    I love my Sondors fat bike and have put about 100 miles on it. I ride on the Ballona Creek and LA beach bike paths primarily (about 28 miles of awesome class 1 bike path). But my love for my Sondors is a little less since my wife got her GB5. First off the GB5 is smaller than the Sondors bike. This may not be apparent in photos. The Sondors bike is actually a bit too big for both of us. I’m 5’6” and my wife is 5’4”. My feet barely reach the ground on the Sondors when I’m just standing straddling the bike. My wife is too intimidated by its size to ride it. The GB5 size is actually much more ideal for smaller riders like us.

    For features the GB5 wins hands down. The killer features of the GB5 IMO are the foldability, the 6 speed derailleur and the full suspension. Other really nice features of the GB5 which are missing on the Sondors are the rear rack, fenders, headlight, tail light, stop light, turn signals and horn.

    Cost wise, yes the GB5 does cost more but the difference is smaller than you might think. Sondors advertised a base price of $500 but when you add in the options for aluminum frame, extra-large battery, LCD panel and front suspension (all of which are matched by the standard GB5) along with shipping charges the total cost of the Sondors was $1100 vs 1325 for the GB5.

    Performance wise, both bikes perform similarly IMO as pure electric bikes using the throttle. Both have equivalent quality large batteries (13Ah vs 12.8Ah), 350W motors and both go about 20MPH. I got 28 miles on a single Sondors charge (maybe 20% pedaling) and while I haven’t tested the GB5 range yet I would expect it to be similar. Where the bikes really differ is operating as basic bicycles. The 6-speed GB5 is head and shoulders better than the single speed Sondors. The GB5 is perfectly ridable with the electrical system off while on the Sondors is a slug without the motor. The more capable basic bicycle of the GB5 also makes the pedal assist modes more useful and fun.

    Riding the GB5 is easy due to its low center of gravity and push button shifter. And it certainly is more nimble than Sondors. The full suspension on the GB5 is really needed IMO due to the smaller wheels and higher pressure tires and it seems to work very well to smooth out the ride. While the Sondors only has suspension on the front the wide low pressure tires (15PSI vs 50PSI) also give it a very comfy ride.

    For build quality I’d give the edge to the Green Bike GB5. It seemed to be better adjusted and tighter overall. Both the brakes and derailleur of the GB5 were adjusted well right out of the box. Both bikes seem to have similar quality components although I’m no expert. I will say the welds on the GB5 look rougher than the Sondors but seem strong on both.

    I think the GB5 is a great deal for the money and I would probably get it over my Sondors if I had to do it all over again. Both bikes look great IMO and turn heads and solicit questions and comments wherever we go. I do like my ability to ride in the sand with the Sondors but I really like the ability of the GB5 to be easily folded up and put in a car. I’d rate the GB5 five stars overall vs 4 stars for the Sondors. The Green Bike GB5 looks great, has a compelling well balanced set of features and seems to be very well put together.

    Excellent Quality!

    I recently purchased two of these for recreational use. They arrived in excellent condition, well packaged, with not a scratch on either one. They are so well made! I just really love the quality of the design and manufacturing. We took them out for a couple miles and everything functioned well, as designed. I’m really satisfied that my money was well spent! Very Pleased!!
