BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Addmotor M-140 Folding E-Bike. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • A 750W motor puts out ample power for toting groceries up steep hills.
  • M-140s have a purported 280lb payload capacity.
  • The M-140 folds in twain to fit in the trunk of a middle-sized car.
  • The M-140 R7 is furnished with tough cast-alloy 6-spoke wheels and an integrated rear hub motor.
  • A 48V 16Ah battery delivers 55-65mi of range, if you stick to PAS 1.
  • Bumps are trumped by an 80mm suspension fork with lockout.
  • A 7-speed drivetrain couples to 5 levels of assist for plenty of gear range.
  • The M-140 is rigged out with integrated head and taillights.
  • The M-140 comes decked out with a rear rack.
  • Owners found the M-140 R7 aesthetically delightful.
  • Assembly is reportedly easy, via video guides.
  • One owner said no tuning was required for the M-140 R7 after assembly.
  • The M-140 is provisioned with folding pedals.
  • Buyers report positive customer service experiences.

4 reasons not to buy

  • An owner says their 70lb M-140 P7 is too heavy to carry up and down stairs.
  • One owner says the M-140 won’t fit in the trunk of a smaller car.
  • An owner was disappointed with low-quality packaging and damage from new.
  • One owner’s M-140 P7 arrived missing a parts box.

Bottom line

Addmotor’s M-140 models are both small-wheeled, folding electric fatbikes with easy-to-access step-through frames. The R7 features tough, cast-alloy mag wheels. The P7 uses spokes. An 80mm suspension fork will help to make short work of uneven roads, while porky 4”-wide tires add to the mattress-on-wheels sensation. These bikes do fold, but owners stress that the M-140 remains bulky and may not fit in smaller trunks. A 750W motor delivers more than enough grunt for lakeside trundles and errand-running.

Ebike Ride to Titusville on an Addmotor M-140 R7

I can literally go 20 or 30 miles and get as much exercise as I would have on that stationary bike.
