Folding Electric Bicycle
Arrive presentably, but with a good story to tell
Our folding electric bicycle is a commuting solution built for the human scale: designed not only to seamlessly transport you from home to work, but also to that local market, garage sale or café you may unknowingly drive by every day.
Wear what you want: Electric boost ensures you don’t sweat in business attire, while a chainless shaft drive and internal gear hub keep your clothes clean.
Plug into other modes of transit: Fold the bike and hop onto a bus or train. Put it into the trunk of your car, your boat or personal plane.

of Deposit Program
We’re only making a limited quantity of
product in 2013, so, for a limited
time period, leaving a $200
refundable deposit reservation will put you on
the reservation list and give you
the opportunity to place an order when we
start production. After submitting your
agreement online and making your
$200 refundable deposit you will be
allocated a reserved place in the order
waiting list for ordering a bike or e-bike
according to your chosen configuration.
Your deposit is fully refundable by us to you at any time.
This is not an agreement for the sale of one of our bicycles or electric-assist
bicycles, and does not lock in
pricing, a production slot, or an estimated delivery
date. And, you’re under no
obligation to purchase an e-bike from us.
For a limited time period, placing a $200 deposit with us gives you the
to be one of the first purchasers of one of
our bikes and/or e-bikes when we reach
production, if we have not already pre-sold our entire
2013 production run to people
who have placed pre-orders. If you place a fully

This is an

your order online your pre-order purchase cannot be canceled.
Why are you limiting production in the first year?
As in any new start-up business,
it is hard to correctly gauge initial product demand.
That is one reason we are offering close to a
25% discount to those who want to guarantee
to receive one of our first e-bikes
through our pre-order program; and through our refundable
deposit program we’re
allowing people to reserve a place in line to purchase one of our first
production e-bikes at our normal MSRP.
In our first year we are
estimating we’ll produce only a few thousand units, which will cost us
million dollars to produce. So, rather
than expending capital on inventory that we might
not be able to sell, we’re
only producing a few thousand units our first year, and allowing those
to guarantee to purchase one the opportunity to do so. And by pre-ordering, you can
do so at a nearly
25% discount to MSRP, if you so choose.
Your Bikes Made?
here in the United States. Portland to be exact. Not many bike manufacturers
can say that,
as 99.7% of bikes are made in China and Taiwan. Our goal, aside
from changing the way we
move around, is to keep production domestic to
market, thereby creating and maintaining local jobs
and lowering our carbon footprint.
When Do You
Expect to Start Shipping?
for the US Market- We will keep you updated as we get closer to this
Will You Be
Selling Bikes Internationally?
excited to bring Conscious Commuter outside the US in the near future, but at
we are focusing on the US market as our entry. If you're an
interested international customer or distributor,
please get in touch! You can
join our mailing list or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll
you know as soon as our bikes become available in your country.
the Dimensions of the Bike?
models share the same dimensions and wheelbase.
and U, when folded, meet these approximate dimensions (still finalizing)
26" (660 mm)
11" (279.4 mm)
25" (635 mm)
under TSA regulation baggage dimensions)
Do I Service My Bike?
made it a point to provide as many low-maintenance, off the shelf components
the bike as possible, so that you can bring it to any conventional bicycle shop
Both our internal hubs and shaft drive minimize maintenance
compared to conventional
chain-driven bikes, and our 20" tire size is
industry standard. In the event that your electronics
need to be serviced,
contact Conscious Commuter and we'll connect you with a local bike shop
quickly replace any damaged components and get you back on the road.
You mention an Electric Bike Upgrade Kit, but where is there
any information about it?
The electric upgrade kit (for the
Model U and Model C) will sell for $1,395 MSRP, and will include a
electric hub motor, battery pack, throttle,
controller and all other electric components.
The pricing does not include installation, which must be done by
Conscious Commuter or an authorized
Conscious Commuter reseller in order for
the warranty to be valid. We have not
yet made the electric
upgrade kit available for order, as, since we are not yet
shipping product, it would not make sense to
order a non-electric bike and
order the upgrade kit, as you can simply order the fully electric version of
one of our bikes now (the Model Ce or Model Ue).

Frame Electric Bike, Model Ue Folding Electric Bike)
How Do You
Charge the Bike?
can plug the folded bike into a conventional 110 volt socket: charging from
empty takes two hours.

Model Ce battery pack provides 10-15 miles of charge on average, depending on
terrain, your pedal input, weight, etc.
Model Ue battery pack provides 7-10 miles of charge on average, depending on
terrain, your pedal input, weight, etc.
Does the Bike Weigh?
the Model Ce full frame electric bike, we are aiming for 30 lbs.
the Model Ue folding electric bike, we want the bike to be light enough for
to handle getting on and off transit and into businesses / apartments
We are aiming for a goal of between 25-30 lbs.
folded, Model Ue can be 'carted' like a suitcase, facilitating the commuting
Does the Bike Go?
The electric assist motor
is electronically limited 20 mph; however, you can pedal as fast as you want!
Does The Bike Have
Regenerative braking adds
complexity and little to no efficiency gains in the context of bikes this size-
cars and trucks are another story. We've chosen to prioritize ride quality,
minimal weight and simplicity over providing this option.
