    I've been looking at 500w folding electric bikes. I was trying to find one < 50 pounds but I wanted fat tires. Does anyone have a folding bike that they could recommend?

    We bought ours two years ago in February rode them everywhere in the desert on the beach in Mexico up at saddle Mountain BLM land They have performed very well watch out for gold heads in the desert I recommend putting slime that you can buy from Walmart in the tires first thing there's a couple pictures of the bikes and they fall down and you could put them in the back of the mega cab Dodge truck . When folded you can hold them and they roll on the wheels very nice .txxsc6rj7iyrh46t.jpeg

    Couple of the RV YouTube channels have been showing these bikes but they are around 59 lbs with fenders, rear rack and battery. June & July shipments are sold out so you wont get one till Aug.

    Just ordered two of these Lectric XP's a few days ago, now have to wait until August. Understand weight is an issue the battery is 7 lbs and with it installed the bike is 59 lbs. With the battery removed should be able to lift them into the RV. Most folding e bikes we checked out are heavy, good luck.

    Make sure you add the discount code from one of the videos to get free Pannier Bag. Just use the code during checkout.

    Hi … just ordered one after confirming they will ship to Canada!! Ordered a black colour and expected delivery will be sometime in August.

    I am an avid mountain biker and currently own two expensive bikes but this ebike is more suited to the desert terrain I do most of my boondocking on. The ability to fold it and place inside my Class B will not only protect it from the weather but keep it safe.

    I had to carry my mountain bike outside and it faced the snow/salt/dust and rain while travelling. The thinner tires also resulted in me having a slow motion crash at Indian Bread Rocks. Twisted my ankle and that's when I went to Hot Well Dunes (which really helped).

    A suggestion. You could have looked at Voltbike, based in BC.

    Dynamic owner, good bikes and pricing.

    Congrats Lisa! I take it you are down in the States?? If so, you get the best deal since there's no exchange rate, shipping or duty fees … lucky you! Mine should arrive in August, as well. Don't forget to get a helmet. Cheers, Steve

    Steve, I am in the US, shipping is a bit tough since I'm never in the same place long. I got the bags on the back too, there was a coupon code to get them free. I'm helmet shopping now. :) Cheers.

    Congratulations on making a decision, we know how hard that can be at times. Also getting ours in early August,(fingers crossed) it has been a long time since we have been this excited about getting bikes! See you travel in a Winnebago Sunstar 27N. Your rear storage compartment is something to envy, perfect for holding your new folding ebike. Is that your plan?

    Congrats on the new Lectric XP bike. We ordered two bikes (white & black) and will be shipped early August. We didn't want to ship them to Canada so we had them shipped to our son's place in Seattle. They should be well used by the time we swing by to pick them up :)

    Thanks for the well wishes. I'll do a post on the bike once I get it and play around a bit.

    I also ordered from Lectric eBike and ours will ship end of Aug. I contacted the company about not sure what our ship address will be and he told me that once I receive an email from them for the expected shipping time frame, I can call and give them the address I will be at so they will ship it there. He said no problem with doing that.

    Klay, I just talked to Lectric ebikes today and found out the exact same thing. They are very responsive aren't they? I mean the actually answer the phone! Little company ... I found a UPS Store and called to be sure they'll accept and hold the bike for me and I'll tell Lectric when I get the next email address. I'm really excited.

    Hi Lisa … yes, I had questions about, not only shipping, but use of an inverter in my RV to charge the bike. Very responsive and answered my questions as soon as they confirmed the information. Very good dealing with them!
