BUYER BEWARE: United City Bikes

United City Bikes (UCB) located in Zürich, Switzerland make claims to having the world's lightest folding electric bicycle "The One", designed by Swiss and German engineering.


UCB has been offering their ebikes to campaign contributors through Indiegogo crowdfunding since April 2019.

This ebike is manufactured and sold by Golden Ages Vehicle Co. Ltd. in China, as "Song of Youth", see, and sold on alibaba for half the price UCB is asking.

After UCB has your money they will contact you and ask for additional payment to cover unexpected duty and shipping to your country. Then they will ask you to pick up the bike in Switzerland. WTF!!! When you request a cancellation and refund you are then out of luck. Neither Indiegogo or UCB will refund your money.
