Folding Bike Shootout



of the Gocycle GX is the very best. Between the geometry, tires and suspension, it was the most comfortable bike on longer rides. It folds up easily and rolls smoothly—yes, it’s the best design of the bunch. We like the choice of colors, and it’ll even keep your car cleaner, thanks to the internal drive. But, it is more than twice the price; you could actually afford two of the other bikes and have money left over.

Everything depends on your needs as a rider, but if we were pressed to pick one bike of the three, we’d go with the Aventon. Yes, it weighs 15 pounds more than the E-Joe, but it has a great combination of price, capability and
fun factor.
