Aventon Sinch Folding Fat Tire eBike 20mph | 750w | 48V 13.4Ah Battery
I’m liking the look and most of the specs… In its folded state this bike (and really all folding fat-tire e-bikes) is smaller but not what I would really call ‘ultra-compact’… if you’ve never ridden an e-bike with 20” x 4.0” fat tires, it’s as close to a two-wheel version of a go-kart as you can get, and I mean loads of fun.
I Bought the Aventon Sinch From My Review Video, Then Broke It 3 Days Later
The second day of owning the bike, I had it folded up in a corner and it actually fell over and broke the M5 display… kind like bent like a banana… I unlocked the top speed so I hit 28 miles per hour on it… I’m very happy with the front shock absorber… overall, for 60 miles or so with the Aventon Sinch, very happy!
