The VOLTTM Metro leads the market for folding electric bikes. It features the most sophisticated technology along with great design features. It is one of the lightest e-bikes in the UK, second only to its sister model the Metro LS. Its light frame makes it easy to ride with or without motorised assistance. The foldable frame is quick and easy to implement and once folded it's capable of being fitted into a wide range of storage spaces including a car boot or porch. This foldable electric bicycle also features VOLTTM's groundbreaking technology SpinTech. This technology provides the most sophisticated riding experience available on any electric cycle. SpinTech is a Pedal Assist System (PAS) which allows those using it to easily adjust the power of motorised assistance to suit their own riding pattern. Riders can choose from no pedal assistance at all to five other levels (0-5). In addition to the latest e-bike technology and sophisticated design, the VOLTTM Metro also comes fitted with a Velo Comfort suspension saddle and front suspension. Here are some of the other key features and high-end components found on the Metro: - 250 SpinTech Power Motor - Lithium Polymer Battery (the best electric bike batteries) - Panasonic 36v10ah - 16Ah Battery option - Shimano Alivio 8 Speed Gears - LCD Display showing speed, distance, battery power - Shimano M375 front and rear disc brakes - Quick release cables for easy maintenance - Intuitive SpinTech Technology - Throttle and PAS - Spanninga Dutch Front and Rear Lights - UK designed and engineered - 2 Year "full peace of mind" Warranty

After 3 months (till a winter cold stopped me riding) and 1150 miles I'm still very impressed with this bike - well made and reliable. My regular commute is a 23 mile round trip, and that uses somewhere between 50% & 75% of the standard 10 Ah battery - not sparing the horses. In big handfuls if you say I use 2/3 of the battery, I'd expect about 35 miles range - and you can do better if you weigh less than my 92 kg., and economise to stretch it out a bit further. More than enough for my needs.
The electric power tops out at 15.5 mph, but on a good downhill stretch using pedal power the bike gets to 23 mph and is stable at that speed.
Riding it is an odd sensation initially, you still pedal since it helps to recharge the battery, but you normally only feel resistance when going uphill. These aren't supposed to go faster than 15.5mph, but I've had this as fast as 22mph
I will warn you though - this bike is heavy - don't think you are going to be picking it up and carrying it on the bus - it weighs close to 20kg !
The battery can be removed - the lock used to power the bike up fits a second lock at the base of the battery, then the battery simply lifts out so you can put the bike in your garage and just take the battery in to charge it.
If I had any criticism of the design it would be that when folded, it could do with some way to lock the three parts in place to make it easier to move (I use a bungee cord), and that given the weight, a set of castors rather than a stand would be useful.
Otherwise, it is terrific. As for size, I am 6'4" tall and it is perfectly big enough for me.
C I. (We Are of to France in the next few weeks will up date this review on our return)once more thanks.
