Electric bikes are more popular than ever, but finding a place to store them, especially in smaller living spaces, is a big problem. The Gocycle GXi ($4,800) solves that by folding into a package about 2 ft. tall and 14 in. wide. But don’t let the bike’s small size fool you: the GXi is a comfy ride that can hit speeds of 20 m.p.h., with up to 50 miles of electric-­assisted range. Spoke-free, side-mounted wheels make for quick tire changes, and a compact, removable battery makes it simple to recharge almost anywhere. And with an app that lets you customize how much power the bike delivers and when, you can expect a smooth experience no matter where you ride. —Patrick Lucas Austin
