Hi All

Looking for a folding E Bike I’m thinking 20inch wheels so fairly small and a budget of around £1200

Something that I can just nip down to shops on and maybe a little off road when camping in the Forest.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

Thanks

We have A S Bikes folders. 20" wheels. I have nothing to compare them to but they only just squeeze through my garage door so I might spend more (you can easily spend 2-3k on a folder) and get something that folds smaller next time. In use we really like them. We've ridden them on quiet roads and light tracks.

Have a look at the "Ego lite plus" with 20inch wheels. They are comparatively light due to the batteries in the seat post which can be slipped out, fold relatively compact with great accessories. Bought one a couple of months ago and was so impressed by the way it road and folded, let the wife try it and she preferred it to her current 20inch folder that I had to by another for myself. Good company to talk to as well, plus within your price range.

20 inch wheels are a little small for off roading

That looks nifty do you have a link or recommend a retailer? Does it work on throttle only? Thanks
No but I bought it from Ketteringham about £800 new he was the cheapest by far

Maybe I need a moped!🤣
An ebike bicycle rides like a moped. We were out yesterday, first time for some months, and the ebike makes things so easy. I knew the unmade up hill we were about to go up so I told OH to go to medium assistance, I generally have my assistance control on handlebar twist throttle. On that hill I would have been out the saddle and found it hard and my wife wouldn't have made it, as it was we both just enjoyed pedalling up it.

I bought a small 20 inch wheel folder from Sway cycles in Lymington. No throttle as illegal. Shame.£1150. My roodog 20 inch folder had a bit more oomph though. I won that in a Competition on here and that's a little cracker. Has a little red button which assists you to start then it pedal assist. Great idea which my little bike from Sway doesn't have unfortunately.

I've got 2 AS 20 inch folders and looking for 2 newer models but the AS have a twist power which is essential as we tow a large dog in a trailer. Just try starting off on a small incline with 55 kg on the back

It's illegal to sell the throttle only ones now, the best you'll get is 'walking assist' which limits them to 4mph I think then pedalling to get more oomph, would that be sufficient for your needs?
