Full DJ Folding Ebike Review coming soon! We’re waiting for it to warm up (currently 10f as I write this!)

We’re about to embark on a 2 month RV trip through Arizona & Utah. We have previously rented ebike in Glennwood Springs & Durango, Colorado, and really enjoyed them. I was happy to find these were available on Amazon Prime and were shipped right to our RV doorstep in just a few days!

There are many choices for folding ebikes and it took me a while to decide on this particular model.

Some of the deciding factors for me were:

Front Suspension

We’ve ridden bikes and ebikea without a front suspension and it starts to become uncomfortable about 30 – 45 minutes. We also wanted to the ability to go on some light trails. The DJ Ebike uses a Mozo fork with preload adjustment and lockout ability. If you don’t need front suspension, consider Lectric ebikes which are very well priced at $899.

Battery Capacity & Range

These DJ Folding ebike come with 13ah using lithium battery cells. Some of the other bikes we looked at only had 10ah… which means less electric ride time. These DJ ebikes have an estimated range of about 40 miles when using pedal assist. We’ll update this section as we get more real-world results on actual range.

Throttle

We wanted ebike with a throttle for the days when we’re feeling lazy. The throttle is also useful when starting from a stop going up a hill…it helps you get going easier after which you can start peddling. One of the top bikes on my list was the Aventon Sinch Folding Ebike, but it didn’t allow the use of throttle from a stop. If that feature is not important to you, definitely consider the Sinch.

Fat Tire

As mentioned earlier, we wanted the ability to do some light offroad trails. Fat tire bikes can also be run with lower air pressure providing both additional traction (think sand on the beach or snow) and additional cushion from bumps.

Folding

This is one is kind of obvious, but since we’re in an RV space is a premium. A folding ebike make sit easier for us to store inside our RV. For you, it may mean you can fit the ebike in the back of your car or truck. Please note, these ebikes are heavy at about 55lbs(with battery) and not easy to move around or lift up once folded. Also, many bike carriers are not rated to hold such a heavy bike. The KAC Overdrive Sports K2 2” Hitch Mounted Rack 2-Bike is rated for 2 bikes up to 60 lbs each.

Accessories

These DJ Ebikes come with both front and rear racks. The front rack/basket is removable. They also sell some bike bags on their website along with additional batteries.

Front headlight and rear light/brake lights are included with the DJ Ebike. With many other brands, lights are optional.

Assembly

These bikes came about 85% assembled and they were nice enough to include tools. The bikes were packed very nicely. We needed to insert the handlebars into the stem, attached the front wheel, attach the pedals and insert the seat. Before you start the assembly, get the battery charging so it can be ready when you’re done putting the bike together. I would estimate about 30 minutes to take your time and assemble the bike, although the second bike only took us about 15 minutes to unpack and assemble.
