Besides completely folded, the Compuboost E-bikes can also be partially folded, with pedals and handlebars folded only, so that it is a slim 12″ to 14″ wide.
Perfect Commuter Bike
The M005 folding electric street bike makes for a great commuter bike. With its long range, and foldable ability, it is more flexible than most bikes for commute. Folding and unfolding takes less than 60 secs in most cases.
- If your commute is short, within 20 mi, the M005 can make the commute to and fro directly.
- Commute greater than 20 mi, you can ride to the destination. Charge it there, then ride back (extra chargers available for purchase).
- If your commute involves public transportation, that is easy too. Just ride to the bus or train, fold up the bicycle, unfold at your bus or train stop and ride to your final destination.
The M005 has a hardtail (meaning no suspension at the rear), so standard luggage and pannier racks fit perfectly. Plus its large 330lb capacity makes carrying books or groceries no effect on the ride. Rides are comfortable, with its street-tuned front suspension, big 2.1″ all terrain tires, and leather covered gel seat. The M005 also has as standard equipment a versatile powered cell phone holder with USB jack. It can hold a GPS, or cell phone. And since it is powered by the mains battery, it can actually charge the phone as you ride. Many customers find this a very handy feature.
