Mike in Boston
Excellent well-made cruiser, especially if you’re under 5’10"

I’m 79, and 5’4”, shrunk 2" over the last 10 years. Boston hills have been getting steeper, and it’s get off my high crossbar, so the step-thru SL is perfect. The bike it great on the road — 5 levels of motor assist; enough boost at level 1 or 2 for the mild hills. Combined with the changing gears, levels 4 or 5 are good on long, steep hills west of the city.

The bike is very well made and quiet on the road. You get fenders, front & back lights, a digital readout, and a rear carrier, but no bell, something Evelo ought to add. The seat is comfortable after just a few rides. You twist the collar of the CVT forward on hills for a low gear ratio, and backward for a high ratio. When it’s twisted back, the collar is stiff and requires a firm grip, but easing off the pedals when shifting helps a lot. Evelo says it will get easier over time, and I can see that starting after only a modest number of miles. The brakes are excellent. The levers can be adjusted closer to the handlebars for short fingers.

Most of the weigh is on the back wheel. One online review said that with the battery mounted in back of the seat the center of gravity felt a bit high. I didn’t find that. One grumble: The bike comes with pedals that aren’t drilled for toe clips, and they don’t spin freely. I replaced them with Velo flat pedals and am happy with those.

I’ve received a response to a couple of emailed questions within hours, and after the first month, an offer for a phone call to answer questions. Envelo is justified in bragging about their service. They sell a lot of bikes with the Enviolo automatic transmission (i.e. the Galaxy Lux), but if you’re ridden a bike with a derailleur and shifters on the handlebars, you’ll feel right at home with the CVT on the Galaxy SL.

I love my Galaxy. Despite not being handy, setting the bike up from the box was no problem and my first rides made me smile so big. Easy to handle, fun to ride. I'm super happy how EVELO has treated me on my first ebike purchase. Highly recommend.

First ride

Just went for a very short (2 mile) ride. My first one. The bike is a perfect fit for me at 5’6”. When I first started out I went “Whee!” Because I did not realize how fast it would start out and I am definitely no speed demon, lol. Baby hills and flats on the road in front of my house, some paved and some turned to potholes and gravel. I did my ride in 0 and 1st pas settings and changed the gears to see how they operate. It was a great learning experience. Glad I had a helmet on! I wanted to have a ride before the weather turns rainy again. I must say it was exhilarating!

My concerns are still the chain and the fact that I have not located a bike shop close to me if I have any issues. And I think the battery rack is not straight but I have not figured out why, yet. It just seems off-center. But, otherwise, I love the bike.

I do want to find a bike trailer for my dog so he can go with me occasionally.

I like the fact that the folks at Evelo keep in contact without being pushy. I spent over a year researching ebikes and am happy I picked Evelo.

Melati Pohan

I am delighted with my Evelo SL e-bike and would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a reliable and efficient mode of transportation. One of the things that I appreciate most about this e-bike is the exceptional customer service provided by Evelo and the four-year warranty. They have consistently reached out to get feedback and provide support, which I believe is well worth the premium price.

As a smaller person (5'2), I was looking for an electric bike with a more petite frame to make it easier to control and maneuver. The Evelo SL exceeded my expectations in this regard, and I am grateful for the additional features that enhance my rides. The mid-drive motor provides excellent stability and a natural cycling experience, and the front and rear lights allow me to ride safely in low-light conditions. The bike is also low maintenance and looks great.

The easy-to-remove battery is a convenient feature, making it easy to charge the bike and ensuring I never run out of power. The Evelo SL has a quick charge time and a battery range that comfortably covers four 9-mile rides I've been doing daily for exercise. The wheel size, gears, and PAS also makes a smooth ride.

While there are a few things that I wish were different about the Evelo SL, such as the weight and the lack of a suspension for rough roads, these are minor issues that do not detract from my overall enjoyment of the bike. The lack of suspension can be easily remedied by purchasing a suspension seat post for $100. Additionally, I wish the throttle speed were adjustable for better assistance when pushing the bike when not physically riding it.

Overall, the Evelo SL e-bike is a significant investment, and I am thrilled with my purchase.

Chains have been a key component on all bicycles for well over 100 years, and will be around for another 100. Since there is no derailleur or external gears on the Galaxy, chain life is extended, and maintenance is much easier than that of a regular bicycle.
