Awesome bike!

Just got my Denago Commute 1 & absolutely love it! I really liked the fat tire options but the weight of those bikes was concerning to me. My local dealer showed me the Commute 1 which has wider tires than other ebikes but maintains a reasonable weight that I could handle without assistance. It was a great option that gives stability & is a nice hybrid between a straight road/commute bike and the fat tire styles. It’s well built, with an integrated light & back light up reflector, 5 levels of pedal assist, a thumb throttle that zips you across busy streets & can handle inclines, metal fenders, hydraulic brakes, front & seat suspension, & nice overall design. I’ve added some accessories that include a trunk rack with drop down panniers, a horn & cell phone holder. This bike provides a smooth, comfortable ride that can be used for recreational riding, trail riding, or a comfortable commute. I’m thrilled with my purchase!!

Awesome Bike!!

These bikes are so easy to assemble. Took me about 30 minutes. They provide all the tools, which I'm stoked about because now I have a new set of nice Allen wrenches and bike wrench I didn't have before. Once assembled my wife and I took off on an epic adventure with food and water easily stored on the carriage rack in and around Truckee CA with smiles and laughing our way through the wooded trails around Truckee. So fun!!! The option for throttle and peddle assist make getting up hills super easy and fun. Thanks Denago and Bike.com...we are stoked

Outstanding bike!

I have had this bike out several times and it has always performed beyond my expectations. I gave up motorcycles years ago and had to give up my bikes due to physical related issues so this is a perfect replacement. It will go where motorcycles go and can squeeze into areas where only bikes are allowed and does it with stealth and comfort. I also purchased an extra battery and looking forward to needing it. 15-25 miles on PAS and I still have 70+% of battery. Awesome bike!

I'd sell my car if weather wasn't a thing

Confession: this bike caught my eye because I my name is Dana and I thought the brand was DanaGo! This is my first eBike: I'm a 64 year old granny with sketchy knees and out of shape. This bike flattened the steep hills near my house. I can't imagine wanting to go above level 2 with ordinary riding. Level 3 is like a turbo-boost. Fun-- but it's on the outer limits of what I need even on hilly roads. 4 and 5? Yikes! Too much for me. My height is 5'8" and so I'm on the cusp of the brake-over height for a larger frame bike. I went for it and it is really big. I have the seat down at its lowest and I have long legs. However, my leg isn't fully extended there but I prefer to reach the ground easily. My husband is my height but has short legs and it is too tall for him. I appreciate the walking mode because it is so easy to walk up the ramp into the bed of my pickup truck. The handle at the back of the seat is a nice perk. The bike itself is really substantial and heavy-duty and feels very safe and strong. I had the "white glove service" and it was delivered to my door. It was wrapped so heroically the truck driver thought it was a motorcycle. There was a mountain of cardboard and bubble wrap and a huge pallet to dispose of after so keep that in mind when deciding how to get it. But, it was really nice to have it all ready to go after the first charge. I do love this bike. I really feel secure and confident the way it handles. Really intuitive and responsive for someone who hasn't had one before. Feels like a real bike when riding. I can't imagine anything that would make it better except maybe a "wide load" seat option. It's plenty comfortable but that's the only improvement I could wish for. And, my god, but it is beautiful! Shout-out to the guy from Denago who talked me through everything.

Dnago Commute

I rode a City 1 for several months and loved it. I recently bought the Commute as I mostly use it for riding to work. The wider tires, suspension fork and post and the burly rack really make this bike great. Especially useful are the built-in headlight and taillight...no more forgetting them early in the morning!

Insanely Cool addition to our Distillery Campus

Our distillery campus in the heart of Kentucky is a 100 acre 16-building facility. Our Denago has been invaluable in saving us time and energy getting around, building-to-building. It's quick, safe, and beloved by our employees and we plan to acquire more! Especially on those hot, humid summer days in Kentucky, the bike is perfect for short, quick trips or longer rides into town. Ease of use is great, rides smooth, and it is amazingly comfortable. We used to tool around in a golf cart or ATV, but this bike has quickly become the favorite way to get out to the rickhouses, over to bottling, or across our distillery campus. We can't wait to get more for our team!

Well built, a lot of fun, a lot of power.

Overall this Denago Commuter one has been A-blast to ride. The acceleration is much more than I expected, and the bike is a solid bike to ride. I love the looks of it and enjoy the experience whenever I'm riding it. The customer service and follow up is phenomenal.

I have thoroughly enjoyed riding my ebike. Hills are no longer a deterrent, I peddle right up with assist. Now we are setting goals to go on longer rides.

Great eBike

I love this eBike. The low step thru frame makes it easy to get on and off the eBike but with the wider tires, front suspension and suspension seat post; I want to keep riding! The integrated front light is very bright and provides great light on the bike path for riding home while the rear taillight is equally as bright. I have not carried anything on the rack just yet, but the rack is very solid. The included fenders are a great bonus feature. I'm looking forward to putting more miles on this eBike.
