Big fun in a small package.  

A powerful and reliable build means you spend more time riding with minimal maintenance and down time. An extra deep step-through frame for accessibility, large squishy tires for comfort and traction, and smaller 24” wheels make the Galaxy 500 our easiest riding model; a great choice for riders of nearly any height or skill level.

Galaxy 500 - I LOVE this Bike. Full Stop.

I'm a 65 year old, 5'5" female, who lives in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. My bike before this was a Townie Go! 21 speed cruiser. I found it bulky, hard to ride, heavy and I HATED dealing with gears. I did a year long research project on E-bikes to determine if they were for me, and if so, which bike would suit me best. I rented or borrowed and rode Pedegos, Aventons, Treks, and Specialized e-bikes. None of them worked well for me. One of my greatest concerns was the weight. If I dropped any of the afore-mentioned bikes, or fell (which I did, several times); it was a struggle for me to pick it up - and putting it on a bike rack unassisted was next to impossible!

I found Evelo online and began researching. I was hesitant to purchase from them at first, due to the fact that I could not ride the bike before purchasing it - and $4K for a bike was an investment for me. What if I didn't like the bike? What if it was too large/too small? What if my local shop wouldn't service it? I called Eric at Evelo and peppered him with these questions, and many more. He was calming, helpful, assuring and willing to talk with me for as long as it took. After a few calls to Eric, I pulled the trigger, purchased the Galaxy 500 - and I'm damned glad I did!

While the Galaxy 500 is sturdy; it's also easy for me to handle and manage. It's balanced beautifully and is and so very well made! I LOVE the Automatiq gear shifting mechanism. It's truly set it and forget it. This is a quality bike people, and I feel like my 4K was well spent. It's handsome and I like the fact that I don't see this bike every time I turn around. I'm taking this baby on local bike paths; riding in the neighborhood; riding rail trails and I have a BIG grin on my face every time I get on the bike. Riding it is truly like being a kid again.

And I can't say enough about Evelo's customer service. I usually take comments about CS with a grain of salt, but the service I've experienced with Evelo so far has been first-rate. The bike arrived with a bent battery rack, and I'm waiting for that to arrive. But all questions, concerns, etc. have been met with rapid response and everyone I've dealt with has been courteous, kind and willing to help in any way possible. Thank you Evelo for giving me this joy. I hope to ride this bike in good health for many years to come, and when I do, I will continue to sing your praises.

Bang For The Buck

WOW - We Love them - Galaxy for wife and Aurora for Me.

After looking at many eBikes at many different dealers, we finally found a link to Evelo. We spoke with a Mr Eric Webster who explain all the details and what we should expect. Eric was "right on" with his guidance and instructions. He educated far far further than any of all the other dealers we visited. While these eBikes cost a little more than those we considered at the dealers, WOW, they are so much more than one finds at your local dealers. With the belt drive (vs chain) and the continiously variable automatic transmission, it is smooth, quiet and a pleasure to ride as the pedal rotation remain comfortable at a near constant 60 pedal rounds each minute.

Upon arrival, the Galaxy was shipped with a bent front fork. I called and within 2 days, a new one arrived with instruction on installation. Man, when in stock, the Evelo team moves quickly to solve problems.

If you have any questions, ask for Eric. He's a great explainer and technician quide.

Finally, I was hesitant to buy online. However, with Evelo, there is no worry. During the wait, they constantly kept us informed as to the status.

You'll be glad if you select Evelo as your eBike company.

My son purchased a Galaxy 500 for me. I can't tell you how much I love this e-bike! I have had it a month and have had lots of questions for the support staff. They are SO responsive and helpful which is a rarity these days! This bike was worth every penny. It is a dream to ride. I don't have to worry about shifting and can go up the steepest hills with ease.

Perfect e-Bike

I've had my Galaxy 500 for just about a month now and have about 120 miles on it, despite the snow we had this month. This is my first e-bike, having biked for years. I'm now retired, 65, overweight, and live on a hill which I couldn't pedal up with a regular bike. I can get up the steepest hill with ease now. My biking buddies all take their bikes on car racks to the place we meet up for our 10-15 mile ride, since they too live on the hill and can't bike up the hill to home. I now bike from home to our rendezvous, no longer worried about getting back up the hill. I did replace the factory seat with a Bikeroo which is much more comfortable and EVELO credited $40 back to me for it. I look for a break in the weather now to ride this bike at least 3 times a week (just finished a nice 10 mile ride today on the wonderful biking/hiking trails in Bellingham). I love the mid-drive, Gates Belt, and automatic gear. I used the manual mode for quite a while because of my experience with regular bikes, but using the automatic (blue) mode is quite responsive and has become my default mode of travel now--it just works!! I definitely made the right choice with EVELO. There are cheaper options out there, but I don't think you can get any other e-bike with the full features and quality of EVELO for less (and in fact, with the top quality components, most other brands similarly equipped bikes are more). I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment.

-Electric Bike Report


Is the Galaxy 500 a good choice for me?

The Galaxy 500 is a feature packed bicycle, with an easy access step-through, and comfortable riding position. This bike is perfect for primarily road riding, some trail riding, and can tackle even the steepest hills and toughest climbs across the country. The mid drive motor system uses a torque sensor, which offers a smooth and natural feeling, but does require minimal pedal pressure to get going. The smaller frame and wheel size make it the best choice for riders under 5’6” - but can easily support taller riders looking for an easy to manage bike as well.

Does the Galaxy 500 have enough power for my terrain?

Mid Drive eBikes are the top of the line as far as power is concerned, and the Galaxy 500 is certainly no exception. The Galaxy 500 can handle larger riders with ease, and can comfortably climb 8% grade with no pedaling whatsoever. The powerful Mid Drive motor, combined with the Enviolo Harmony Automatic shifting system operates at the highest efficiency possible, offering the most power, and range in its class.

Will I fit properly on the Galaxy?

The Galaxy can be adjusted to suit Small and Medium sized riders.. Take a closer look at our sizing chart and specifications on the product page. A great way to compare this to your existing bike is to measure your current saddle height straight down to the ground - this gives you a real number to compare to the specs on our website. If this measurement is over 29” - you’ll fit well on the Galaxy 500. The saddle goes a full 3” lower than our Aurora Limited, and is a whopping 15lbs lighter.
