    Aventon says it fits riders from 4’11” to 6’2”.

8 reasons not to buy

  • At 68lb, the Sinch.2 is heavy for a folding bike, making it difficult to lift and carry.
  • Mechanical disc brakes seem outdated and under-specced to testers.
  • A tester finds the right side of the Sinch.2’s handlebars to be crowded.
  • A reviewer notes the Sinch.2’s lack of bottle cage bosses.
  • The Sinch.2 has replaced the Sinch Step-Through’s Shimano kit with a
    “basic Aventon branded” shifter and derailleur.
  • The Sinch.2 has no Class 3 capability, unlike other Aventon bikes.
  • One tester’s brake cable was unsecured and rubbing bare on the Sinch.2’s rear tire.
  • One reviewer feels the provided Velo saddle is uncomfortable and will swap it out.

Bottom line

The Sinch.2 is a new version of the Sinch Step-Through folding, fat-tire, Class 2
e-bike. This build is improved by a torque sensor. The result is smoother assistance and more range, due to increased efficiency. The Sinch.2 uses in-house drivetrain components, in place of Shimano options. Reviewers appreciate the inclusion of a rear rack, integrated lighting, fenders, and folding pedals. Mechanical brakes seem outdated to reviewers but may be a conscious choice to prevent hydraulic cables from being squished between the bike’s folding mechanisms. The 500-watt motor reaches 750W at peak.

Aventon Sinch.2 Review:
Subtle Changes Make for a Superior Step-Through

A well-designed and functional folding e-bike… newly included accessories are about right for an e-bike at this price …a torque sensor offers more natural control… The right side of the handlebars now feels a little crowded… It would have been great to see mechanical disc brakes replaced by a hydraulic set and to retain the Shimano shifter and derailleur.

This bike did excellent. I really enjoyed riding it. I did like the fact that these handlebars are wider. The mechanical brakes, they work just fine. Let’s trade out this seat.
