Customer Reviews

Based on 91 reviews
Amanda Ginn

Great bike, reasonably priced, there was an event last week, I received it on Black Friday. It rides very easily, looks great and is easy to unpack/install. When the weather gets better in a few days, I'll go out for a ride.

Courtney Hughes
Exceeds expectations!

We've been researching e-bikes for over a year now, and what made us decide that Denago was the best company was their answers to our questions (and we asked a lot of them). We bought this car during the event and received it on Black Friday. Both bikes have been delivered. I'm really lucky to have them. Unboxing and "assembly" went smoothly, there wasn't much to assemble other than unfolding and connecting a few parts. There are no low tires, dents or defects on either bike. The nominal battery power is basically enough for us to ride on the road a few times to test it, and then it needs to be fully charged. With some limitations in our mobility due to early injuries, I wasn't sure we would be comfortable using them, but I was surprised at how easy they were to operate. They are a little heavier than I expected, but that doesn't make them bulky and once you put them on you can barely tell the difference. We love them so far!

Vincent Cucuzza
Value for price

We got this ebike for my wife who didn’t like larger ebikes she had ridden. The city 1 step is the perfect size for a woman of 5’ 7”. We have this ebike in mountainis CO….so wanted hydraulic brakes….they work great. But most impressive is the pedaling….no gaps in continuous engagement like other Ebikes. Always a consistent resistance when pedaling. For any money (but especially this price point) very, very impressive design and ease of use. I have 5 other ebikes (not Denago) at other locations, so this is a fair comparison.

Dgj Iluma
Great ebike and company!

This is my third Denago ebike, my first was an Folding 1 and then I bought an Fat tire to have as a second bike to have for friends to ride and now I recently bought the city 1 step. I bought the city 1 step because I had damaged my folding 1 and it was going to be a couple of months before I could get the parts to fix it.
And Denago customer service is the best! Every time I have damaged my bike mostly because of loading and unloading they have always just sent me parts to fix it, even though it was my fault. You guys are awesome!

Tom Temple
Awesome Bike

I've had my bike for about a month now and rode 30 miles yesterday. During that time there were a few issues that customer service helped me with. The customer service was great, which is rare these days. I definitely recommend these bikes, you can't go wrong. I love that it has an easy to read odometer so you know your speed and battery usage. I will be purchasing an extra long life battery due to our longer rides. You will be very happy with your purchase of these bikes.
