If space & weight are not too crucial and you need something that carries a bit more load then your best bet would be the E-Go Lite+ Folding Electric Bike.
A new addition to the growing E-Go folding electric bike family, this great bike is sure to be a popular choice for people who want the versatility of a larger but still very compact 7 speed folding bike. With all the great features of it's smaller brother the E-Go Lite this bike has the addition of 20" wheels and 7 speed Shimano gears and a more powerful 7Ah Samsung Lithium Ion Battery. It also has a max load of 100kg, slightly more than the Lite. On top of all that it still only weighs 18kg net, a very compact, neat and stylish product.
With 4 modes (walk, pedal/power assistance assist, cruise & normal bike mode), it has everything you need for a modern method of travel. It also comes in 3 great colours - Satin Black, Glossy Red or Metallic White.
Folded size is 82cm x 46cm x 72cm. Additionally the Lite comes fully loaded with front & rear mudguards, front & rear lights, disc brakes, bell & reflector.
Think your bike riding days are over? This bike is really popular with the older generation, giving them a new lease of life, enabling them to return to cycling and get regular exercise. We have many customers in their 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Top marks for both, very happy.
I did a lot of research before I decided upon the E-Go Lite+.
I chose it because it can be used as a normal seven speed bike, so I can get as much or as little exercise as I want!
It folds for when I will be taking it on caravan trips, and it's not to heavy, making it manageable when loading in my car, and all for what I consider to be a very reasonable price.
I also think the Satin Black colour I chose looks really good.
I've had a few trips out now, and find it very enjoyable to ride, the assistance from the motor is really good on hills and the disk brakes perform well.
I've also had excellent service via online chats with the folks at the Eco Bike Co.
Therefore I highly recommend both the bike and the company.
First 50km done and have been enjoying riding the e-go lite+. Great for cruising and also handles hills well. Quality seems good and bike arrived pretty much ready to go. Only bad point is that the rear light isn't working on arrival, as its only a battery operated one It can be cheaply replaced.
My wife can count on one hand she says the number of times she has ridden a bike in her life!
I ordered an E-Go Lite+ for me first with a view to her giving it a go. She was adamant she wasn’t going to have a bike without riding one first. This is a bit difficult in the current climate. I did a lot of research before choosing the E-Go as I wanted something light enough to lift in and out of the Motorhome but big enough to be easy to ride without trying to break the bank. The Ego seemed to be the closest fit to our needs. I ordered one for me first. Assembly was straight forward enough, mudguard brackets are a bit springy and need a bit of effort to fix but it’s not hard. I gave it a quick blast around the block testing the basics like being able to ride without power assist which is important if you are out and end up with a flat battery. This was just as easy as any none powered bike so a good tick there. It handled the steepish hill we live at the top of on level 3 easy enough. My slightly hesitant wife then rode it around the block a couple of times and the smiles said it all as I watched her ride up the hill on level 3 she said and said she would like one so I ordered another one. Unfortunately bad things happen and when the second one arrived it was in a bad way, probably down to delivery mishandling. The team at Eco Bike responded to the photographs I sent and although I tried to get it sorted, it was too damaged for me to fix, another bike was sorted as a replacement. Unfortunately it didn’t arrive in time for our first weekend away in the Motorhome. Not a problem we had a spare adult mountain bike and with my wife riding the E-Go and me on the leg powered mountain bike, we did a 10 mile circuit from the site and my wife enjoyed it and said without the E-Go she would never consider going out on a bike certainly not over that kind of distance. She mainly only used levels 1-3 with the occasional boost to 4 on some steeper bits, about quarter of the battery life used by time we got back to site. Basically a success for getting my wife out on a bike she is happy to use and wants to use it more, thanks Eco and E-Go. Looking forward to being able to keep up with her a bit easier on my own E-Go on next trip :-)
The one downside is that the LCD display refuses to change from kph to mph despite following various instructions both supplied with the bike and via the online chat with Eco. The second bike has the same problem so I suspect it is not actually possible to change. It’s more of an irritant than being anything terminal, otherwise happy so far with the bike and looking forward to getting many more miles on it, or should that be kilometres :-)
Impressed with bike. Well made and a joy to ride. Prompt and courteous delivery
