The Perfect Folding Electric Bike. 

With 20" wheels and a low step-through frame, this fat tire folding electric bike is compact, easy to mount, navigate through dense environments, easy to store, yet durable enough for wide-open spaces. Fold it up for easy storage and transportation in your vehicle. The 500 watt motor gives you lots of zip and assist. The mighty 48 volt / 16 amp hour (768 watt hours) gives you speed and up to 60+ miles of range. Includes a sturdy rear-rack with integrated rear brake and tail light. The quality starts when we powder-coat finish your frame, fenders (optional) and rear rack. Your bike-smith then builds your bike with top e-bike components and the styling options you select. 

The Peñalosa gets its name from two brothers – Gil and Enrique Peñalosa. As Mayor of Bogota, Columbia, Enrique has championed the message of Ciclovia - a weekly event where pedestrians and bicyclists take back the streets from cars - around the world.*

Aluminum Fenders & Racks (Not Plastic)

No one likes riding through a puddle only to arrive at your destination wet and uncomfortable. Don’t get caught with a skunk back. Where most companies use cheap plastic fenders which are a pain to install and don't often do their job or last very long, fatte-bikes use high quality aluminum fenders and racks to ensure they last and perform to your expectations.

Powder Coat Painting

There’s no need to settle for a paint job that won’t last when you can have a premium automotive grade “custom” paint job that’s not only more durable and will last longer, but also better for the planet. Most liquid paints contain high vocs that are harmful to the environment whereas powder coat paint has no vocs. It's a win win!
