Hey everyone, mike here with electric and today were checking out. The gocycle g4i lets hit it Music gocycles newest g4 line includes a spread of some of the fanciest folding e bikes ive ever seen. This one is the g4i plus, which is the top of the line model. Lets start with the carbon fiber, which is nearly everywhere thats a carbon fiber monocoque for the mid frame and a carbon fiber single sided fork up front im, not sure if you can call it a fork if its single sided its kind of more like a chopstick. But ill allow it. The carbon continues down into the wheels look at these things. This is just beautiful and you wouldnt know it unless someone pointed it out, but theres, actually, a 500 watt motor hidden in that front hub it powers the bike up to 20 miles. An hour with the torque sensor, controlled, pedal, assist that provides immediate response. Just the way proper pedal assist should be, which is good, because youre gon na pay a freaking arm and a leg for this thing more on that in a moment now the single sided wheels here, arent just for being fancy. They save weight and make it easier to change a flat tire too. The high quality tires means youll get fewer flats, though, and theyre silica infused for better grip. Like racing tires, the dashboard is also racing inspired and is a complex array of blinking led lights.

Thats. The one thing about the bike that i didnt really like, actually its just a bit of a complicated display, while also somehow being too simplistic as well. You can still put your phone on the handlebars and use the app as your dashboard, but i would have liked to see a real display built in speaking of the app its actually a really cool setup. That starts by walking you through the assembly and safety checks of the bike right when you take it out of the box, and then it brings you into that neat dashboard. Even if you dont get a built in lcd display, the handlebars are still quite techy. There are daytime running lights and the hydraulic brake levers are built right into the bars themselves, theres, even a usbc charging port in there, which is still a rarity on e bikes when youre not using the bikes 375 watt hour removable battery to charge your devices via That usbc port youll be using it to get some pretty darn good range go cycle, says youll, get up to 50 miles or 80 kilometers on a charge, though, of course, you should note that keeping the bike in its highest pedal assist level will drop. That range a bit folding, the bike is simple and quick, which is a hallmark of ghost cycle, and the bike can be rolled while its folded too, which is a nice addition, its only 16.9 kilos, so its pretty light for a folding e bike.

But its still nicer to roll than lift. I also like that. The double kickstand makes a great folded stand too, which keeps your nice carbon bike from getting scratched up on the floor. The ride of the go cycle itself really surprised me. The odd look made me question how well it could ride, but its so smooth and comfortable that i was really blown away. The rear suspension adds to the ride quality and the smaller wheels give a nimble feeling to the handling those hydraulic brakes are grippy and give you good stopping confidence, and the tires are equally grippy for good cornering the bike actually rides weirdly. Well, i dont know maybe im just not used to being on such an expensive e bike and boy. Is it expensive, while the other models in the g4 line started a few thousand bucks less? The g4i plus here is the 69 99 flagship model in the lineup. Its the top of the line for a reason and thats expensive. I do get it, though this isnt, just one of many similar e bikes that packs in some nice parts, its a totally unique innovative design that required thoughtful engineering and novel manufacturing. Then you add in all the fancy parts, and you can see where you start to get this price ill put it this way, though, which is what i wrote in my review on electric its like this example, my best friend has some fancy kitchen knives that cost Five times what my ikea kitchen knives cost, we can both make a fine salad, but he sharpens his knives, maybe once a year and will pass them on to his grandkids, and i seem to have to resharpen mine every couple weeks and i hope theyll last.

A few years, if im lucky, i rip him for paying so much, and he ribs me when i struggle with a tomato. I see this the same way. I can commute just fine on a 1500 e bike that would cost nearly a fifth of this, but the ownership experience is going to be totally different. That bike wont be as light or as convenient or as low maintenance or last as long or be as comfortable to ride, etc, etc, etc. So yeah its super expensive but youre getting what you pay for and for anyone that wants most of this at a lower price go cycles. Other folding e bikes give you probably 85 to 90 of the benefits of what youd get here in their flagship model. Yet at around half the cost, if you want the best, though itll cost you thanks for watching everyone, we hope you enjoyed that review of the go cycle. G4I.
