On today’s market there aren’t that many ebike models that combine light weight of 36 lbs and rather affordable price of $1,000. Populo Sport has a single speed drivetrain with a hub motor in the rear wheel.
This is the second generation pedelec from Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent line, that is now even more affordable. It comes with lifetime warranty on the frame, two years on the mechanical components and 1 year on the battery.

The Scout is an oversized middle price model from Populo that gets richer package of features, more battery capacity and higher speed. Unlike many bikes from this class it has a mid-drive motor with 350 W output.
Moar Bike: moar.bike
In this video we tried to avoid featuring crowdfunding bikes that are not readily available and have proven their worthiness, but Moar managed to grab our attention, being the first comparatively affordable electric bicycle with full suspension.
If you are looking for an affordable electric bicycle from a reliable manufacturer, you should definitely look into the lineup suggested by the Chinese high-tech giant Xiaomi. Mijia QiCycle has foldable construction and can fit into a car trunk.
