Founded in 2020 by Wade Wei, Magicycle is a new player in the electric bike industry. With 6 models in its 2023 lineup, the company continues to expand its range by introducing new models that serve the needs of its customer base. Magicycle’s original electric bike models are built tough to tackle a variety of terrain types and feature 26″ x 4″ Kenda fat tires for added stability and comfort. In June 2022, the brand launched its new Commuter step-over model which offers Magicycle fans something that they’ve been asking for — a stylish, lightweight urban commuter.

Despite being a new brand, Magicycle has already made a name for itself by delivering excellent value. The company’s electric bikes are affordably priced and come loaded with quality components and features such as corrosion-resistant 6061 aluminum alloy frames, 180mm Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, comfortable saddles, Kenda fat tires, Shimano gearing, integrated front and rear lighting, adjustable front suspension, and more. Additionally, each Magicycle bike is backed by a 2-year warranty and generous 15-day money-back guarantee.

In this review of the Magicycle brand, we’ll take a look at each of their fat tire electric bikes, compare features and pricing, and share details on current sales, coupon codes, and promotions.

    Do not buy…

    Rated 1 out of 5
    January 23, 2023

    This was the worst experience ever. The bike came damaged and in poor mechanical condition. I wanted to return it but was told I had to pay a $400 restocking fee, on top of shipping costs. The accessories were cheap, not as described and took a month to receive from China. The customer service experience was awful. The bike itself is ugly from all of the welds and horrible design. Do not buy!!! It’s a waste of time and money.

    I don’t recommend for customer service…

    Just bought one of these. I’m a girl who hasn’t put a bike together before. First of all, a lot of the free stuff was missing. I don’t really care about that. Then, different videos leave out different things. I spent 2 hours trying to put the tire on, not knowing there’s a piece you have to remove first. That’s not in the instructions. I also called them for assistance; they never responded. I don’t recommend for customer service.

    The Step-Thru Cruiser is really fun to ride and offers excellent climbing ability. Riding up steep hills is no problem and the midnight blue color looks really sharp. Love my Cruiser!

    I’m really happy with my Magicycle cruiser. I did a lot of research before I bought it and found that with all the included accessories, it was the best value for my money. The frame is solid and well made–if a bit heavy at 76 lb–but without the battery I can carry it around on my bike rack (max weight 70 lb) without any issues. It’s well balanced, so on relatively flat terrain it rides like any other ordinary bike. The display is easy to read in all light conditions, and has a lot of options for customizing your levels of assist and other features. I live in a hilly canyon area, and with some vigorous pedaling I can get up some pretty steep hills without maxing out the pedal assist. At 750 watts/53 volts, it is one of the more powerful street-legal bikes around, and the battery life is good, especially if you don’t use it all the time. The other day I rode for 53 miles on a mix of hills and flat terrain, and only used half of my available battery. The Tektro brakes are adequate for my riding style, although some folks switch them out for hydraulics. The integrated brake light is a great feature, (although I did add a couple of Blitzu blinkers for a bit more visibility), and the front suspension softens out the ride pretty well off-road or on bumpy streets. I’d definitely recommend this bike!
