SUMMARY

I loved whipping around the city on this bike. Anyone who saw me giggling uncontrollably on this machine as I raced up a hill, feet out, knew that I was having the time of my life. New to e-bikes, jumping on the Epik Lite was a joy from the first ride. Having only one gear was not a problem as I could always turn the motor on at any moment, though a higher gear would have been better for faster speeds. Being both a folding and an e-bike, the Epik Lite is perfect for anyone living in a city who needs to bring their bike inside an apartment or wants to travel with their bike. The rear rack allowed me to bring a small pannier, or strap something on, and the integrated lighting made for a carefree ride at anytime of the day. I certainly found this a very appealing introduction to the possibility of e-bikes.
