Blaupunkt Folding E-Bike
German manufacturer Blaupunkt is bringing something different from the car stereos you know to the US — a line of folding electric bikes. The e-bikes come in three color combinations with pedal assist up to 20 MPH and a range of 45 miles between charges. The Henri, Fiete and Fiene are all the same bike, with the names denoting the color combinations — grey/black for the Henri, Fiete in blue/black, and the Fiene in orange/black. A die-cast magnesium-alloy frame folds down to 20x30x23 inches, with a weight of 46 pounds. A rear-hub motor makes 350w of power with three levels of pedal assist, combined with a Shimano six-speed gearset. The bike rides on 20-inch wheels with Tektro mechanical disc brakes providing ample stopping power. Blaupunkt's e-bike is available now at Bike Exchange.
