I am a 61 year old architect and I use my Aries to comute to work to my office in downtown Santa Cruz. I also do a lot of work up on the UCSC campus which make having the bike a real plus.
I can easily climb the hill and once I am there I can zip from one part of campus to the other without having to find a parking space thus saving time and hastle.
The more enjoyable time is on weekends when I use it to explore the many trails and paths nearby. It is heavier than my mountain bike so when I want a workout I just turn the engine off. The sturdy frame and shocks make it a good ride down the paths. At my age I want it all but don’t want to hurt myself in the process.
Have really enjoyed the bike, especially taking off when the light changes!

The rating is partly for the bike and partly for the service I experienced before and after purchase. Bill, their salesman and I exchanged 24 emails before and ‘after’ the purchase. He has continued to be helpful with such matters as a bike carrier, bags that can be fitted to the bike, and so on. All this after the sale was made and they stood to make no profit. Now that’s my kind of service and my kind of company.
The bike handles beautifully. That is not simply my assessment, it is the judgment of my bike guy who hates to work on electric bikes. He was surprised, though I was less so, owing to the smart positioning of the motor. The power of the bike is very good, but not exceptional, and that actually works better for me. I am 72 and want to work and get some CV, but I also need to guard an ankle I broke in three places. The first time I rode the bike I went up to town, a rise of 115′ in .8 miles. Normally I average 8-10 MPH and often have a sore ankle the next day, but on the Aurora my average was 12-15 MPH … and my ankle was fine! The two other rides were similarly successful, though I do need to practice using the Pedal Assist in traffic. It can be a bit surprising when it kicks in. I have used it off road a bit just to test the suspension. Nothing dramatic or daredevil – just grass, a grassy hill and a dirt road. It met all challenges better than I had expected. I am 190# and when using just the power to take a break on a hill, I get 6 MPH. Nothing dashing, but it is progress. I would buy this bike again in a flash.

I can no longer keep it to myself. About a year ago I purchased the Evelo Aries for my wife. It turned out the Aries seat height and the lack of a step through design made it difficult for her to get on it, so she gave it to me (Thank you sweet heart). It turned out the bike was a perfect fit for me. After taking it around town then into the mountains I was amazed how well it went up the hills. After going on a few more rides it became very clear this bike had some serious potential to be a truly great mountain bike. To fulfill it’s potential I upgraded the following:
1. Added an X Fusion O2 Rear Suspension Mountain Bicycle Shock with 3 levels of adjustment: Soft, Firm & lock out modes.
2. Added an X fusion Hilo Remote hydraulic seat post. This is essential, if one minute your riding on a smooth paved road then going off the edge and flying down the mountain side. with the flip of a lever mounted next to your thumb you can quickly drop the seat down and out of your way.
3. Installed a rear view mirror
4. Upgraded the speedometer to a sigma model 1609
5. Replaced the the hand grips with Body Geometry Contour Locking Grips.
6. Water bottle holder
7. Iphone Mount
8. Bluetooth Stereo/Speaker phone to interface with my iPhone
9. Bell to politely tell people I’m approaching them.
10. I raised the handle bars by roughly 3”
I would upgrade the kick stand but I haven’t found a better one yet. The bike continues to be an absolute pleasure to ride and it has proven to be the great equalizer. The Lithium Ion Battery enables me to ride circles around my 23 year old son and now he wants one.
If your trying to keep a low profile and not draw any attention to your self then I would get a more conventional bike, but if you don’t mind the attention it draws then I suggest treating yourself to the Ultimate Electric Bike. BTW – to keep my wife happy I bought her the Luna so she could stand a chance at keeping up with us.
The stock battery is ideally suites for the bike, meaning I have always had enough juice to get home. My longest ride has been roughly 20 miles and I assisted as I typically do when I ride.

Thank you very much to everyone at EVELO, I absolutely love my new Aries bike, with more than 177 miles and counting on my new wheels, with each pedal stroke I take, I am even more pleased with my new bicycle. I have been riding over 22 miles/day. I’m now able to travel further, climb greater inclines and pedal light to moderate terrain that before would of been a lot more challenging or down right inaccessible living in higher elevation in my city. I look forward to many more years of enjoyment on my EVELO bicycle.
EVELO is a Boston Based Company that sells their own upgraded version of a product line currently manufactured and sold outside of the USA under other brand-names. What makes EVELO better are two key things, 1) the amazing customer support and customer service headquartered right here in the good OL’ USA, and 2) EVELO is the only company selling this foreign manufactured product line with upgraded components such as NuVinci, the current display panel, Alfine tensioner, etc. These bikes are well made and are so much fun.
The greatest component EVELO has is the amazing customer service.
I have had numerous questions and have had several email exchanges with their knowledgable staff who have made my purchase enjoyable, knowledgeable and down right fantastic. THIS IS WHAT SEPARATES YOU from your competition. Without your amazing customer service, your rapid email responses I might have considered purchasing with a competitor , I’m so glad I didn’t. I may even purchase another bike for guests visiting me here in Vermont or may consider purchasing more bikes to start a rental business.
This isn’t just a bicycle, this has become my second vehicle, with the on demand power, I now use this bicycle for errands that were just not possible before, I can honestly say that I have not used my car in three weeks when I have needed transportation for only myself. Its not only a shift in technology but it has created a shift in my thinking.
Special thanks to Alex, Bill, Nancy, John and David for answering all my emails, you made the difference in this sale and possibly many more to come. I truly love this product.
If you are nervous about buying a bicycle sight unseen from EVELO, ask EVELO for a test drive from an EVELO Ambassador in your area. You will not be disappointed

My experience with the EVELO Aries bike can be described as follows: EVELO’s web site accurately described the bike, and customer service was flawless in its dealings with me, to the point of sending me a new bike when I only ordered a refurbished bike, when the refurbished one they had could not be made adequate according to their standards. They paid a local bike shop to fix a problem with a ‘clicking sound’ when riding the bike and gave me a $25 store credit for my trouble. While the bike is as represented; I recommend that anyone buying a bike (especially an electric bike), find the one they think will serve them best, and find a store or a friend, to try it out.
The Aries was, and is, the best combination of features that suited me. I wanted a ‘comfort bike’, that provided assistance on hills around my home in the Smokey Mountains, and that had a comfortable seat with an upright riding position, as opposed to the bent over position common to racing bikes. I had a 2″ extension fitted to the handle bars, and would have extended it more, except that the wiring would not allow it.
A great feature is the NuvVinci N360 continuously variable transmission. While it adds 5# to the weight, the NuVinci, along with 3 levels of pedal assist and a throttle provides plenty of power for the hills. The Samsung battery performs well; and, even the saddle, which I assume would have be replaced, was adequate. A Thudbuster LT shock absorber seat post was installed, only to find out that it raised the seat too high to easily get on and off the bike. I also liked the ‘step through’ design that somewhat reduces the problem described below.
My main problem with the Aries was the ‘cadence assist’ motor assistance, where the rider experiences a delay before the motor kicks in, after sufficient revolutions in the peddles takes place. There is a delay at the most critical time as the cyclist is mounting the seat. A ‘torque assist’ would be preferred, where motor assist is determined by pressure applied to the peddles.
The disk brakes are a nice addition that are not always found on electric bikes; but are helpful in hilly areas and for a bike of its weight. The lockout shock on the front is a quality shock and adds to the comfort.
