  X5

By jeffglibert225 on October 15, 2021

Just completed 1,500 miles on my X5 in 18 months. Great ebike. Only maintenance issues were new petals and a new tube from a flat tire. Heading out this afternoon for another 15 mile ride.

  Attractive, lightweight, very transportable & stowable

By khengswee on September 14, 2021

I own 5 bikes, 2 are electric. And this is by far the one I use most - because of how convenient and lightweight it is. "Throwing" it into the trunk of my small hatchback is a breeze compared to having to wrestle with a bike rack. When I reach my destination, grabbing it out of the car, and unfolding it is equally quick. I added my own seat-post suspension and gel seat to make this bike even more comfortable. I've listed the following pros and cons: Pros: - lightweight, easy to carry in and out of the car. - easy & quick 4-step folding: remove seat, fold pedals, fold frame, fold handlebar stem. - attractive no-weld futuristic-looking rectangular frame - it's nice to have a rear suspension, built-in horn and lights - Was a good value purchase at Costco.com price Cons: - Small wheel size limits speed when I've maxed out my cadence. - My particular bike suffers from a bad rear brake squealing - Something in the front assembly squeaks every time I hit a bump. A little worrying. - no front fork suspension (not even the X7 has it). - I feel "top heavy" when going downhill at speed. A little scary! - The small battery will run down quickly if you don't pedal and just rely on the throttle. Conclusion: an attractive looking bike to ride around the neighborhood, to commute in the city or just to get out. But watch those downhill speeds. Creaking front frame assembly will need to be further investigated. I'd probably be more comfortable with something slightly bigger like the X7 or Summit. I hope they'll sell in Costco.com again.

  For RV’ers..these are PERFECT

By jeff on August 15, 2021

For years we hauled around a clunky golf cart on a trailer..got really tired of that and decided on an E-bike. Our local surf shop in St Petersburg Beach, FL carried the Jupiter line and when we saw these..especially folded up..we were sold. Sturdy..super comfortable..powerful and long range. The small size will fool you at first, but these little bikes are the real deal. We stash the bikes inside the RV and no longer drag an EZ-GO

Why should people ride an electric bike?

Firstly, they are fun! There is nothing quite like the feeling of the extra boost and speed you get from an electric powered bicycle. I’ve been commuting and riding one for more than ten years and I still get a smile on my face every time I ride. Most people think that riding an electric bicycle will make you un-healthy or is “cheating”. But it is just not so. People ride and exercise based on their personality. Ask any ebike owner if they are in better shape after they bought an ebike – the answer will be yes!

How can an electric bike impact positively on your life?

Electric bikes can change your life. It sounds cliché, but it’s true. They are genuinely a transformative product. They will help you become more active and stay healthy. Ebikes are not like fad diets or a new gym membership that you stop using, they become part of your life, sustainable and continuing to provide you pleasure and health benefit over the long term.

What is driving the electric bike market and how does JupiterBike fit into those forces?

By 2030, urban areas will be home to more than 60% of the projected world population of 8 billion people. This will put tremendous pressure on the environment, as well as public infrastructure that is already struggling to meet the growing demand for transportation and basic services. Congestion, lack of parking space and poor air quality are rendering today’s automobiles, and the internal combustion engine in particular, unsustainable as the core of personal urban transportation. Inevitable pressure on urban populations and health is driving a paradigm shift in awareness and adoption of sustainable personal electric urban transport. And that’s where JupiterBike comes in!

Why does a JupiterBike feel and ride so comfortably when it looks so different?

Bicycles are for people, not orangutans. Many bicycles and designers just don’t get that point – take a look at any futuristic bike design and you will see that the designers are contemplating a customer that is a new species of humanoid usually with extremely long arms, super short legs, and a very supple back. There are some things you just can’t change, like the way people are made! Bicycles need to be comfortable and so the touch points – handlebars, seat, pedals, front wheel, and rear wheel all need to fit the human body!
