The price of the Epik SE is quite reasonable, but e-Joe
has an Epik Lite model with a single-speed drive system
and the new 350-watt hub motor for $1349. If you ride
big hills, the seven-speed is well worth the price.
We were able to easily insert the folded e-Joe into an economy
car trunk. It also sat easily in the back of an SUV. It was stable
enough folded that we didn’t bother to tie it down.
The SE (for Sport Edition) includes the seven-speed derailleur,
the rack and the fenders. Shifting is crisp and accurate, but
the new-for-2014 350-watt hub motor will drive it faster than
you can pedal with the current gearing.
The e-Joe Epik SE folded quickly and easily into a compact
bundle. A clever loop under the frame allows the folded bike to
sit securely without resting on the chainring.
