Ride1upExcellentRide1up4.6 Based on 992 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onEricEric ★★★★★ The customer service is spot on, the bikes are quality and the fun is unlimited!Rosy DashRosy Dash ★★★★★ Thru no fault of their own, there was a mixup in the purchase price of a bike I ordered from Ride1up. It had already shipped to the local bike shop in Denver but the time I realized here was an issue, making it seemingly impossible to pull back the order. I unleashed on Chad. After receiving several angry emails from me, Chad from Ride1up in Minnesota contacted me. He worked all that day to make my situation right. (The bike I chose was then kept as part of the local shop's inventory, which was another huge above and beyond service, (a huge thank you to eForce in Denver!) Chad made a promise that he would honor a price was at the time a few hundred dollars less than the original purchase price of my bike and fast forward, the sale went thru and I am anticipating a great many years of happy bike riding with my electric bike! A million thanks to Chad of Ride 1 up and to eForce Electric Bikes in Denver!Jim WhiteJim White ★★★★★ I purchased a V1 Prodigy ST earlier this year. As of today it has just over one thousand miles without any issues. It allows me to travel 27 miles at an average speed of just over 20 miles per hour. Over the years I have owned three different Mid-Drive E-Bikes. I believe the Ride1up Prodigy is a good value and has proven to be a reliable product. I recommend it.Jeff KerrJeff Kerr ★★★★★ This store is great! I got a high-quality Ebike for an incredibly good price. Rudy is super patient, knowledgeable and helpful. He answered all of my questions and helped me test ride several bikes. Ride1Up has some great designs and some really good intuitions about what makes a great bike. Their components are much better than similar companies. You can save a lot of money here because you're buying directly the manufacturer. I highly recommend their Ebikes!Lance LaPointeLance LaPointe ★★★★★ 2nd component I’ve bought from them with fast shipping and amazing customer service when I had a question. I own a model they no longer make but they still stand behind it and have gotten me the parts needed. They build an amazing E Bike. I doubt mine will ever wear out, but if I tire of it. I’ll get another Ride1up.Edward GildredEdward Gildred ★★★★★ I was looking for the perfect eBike to bring to burningman and I found it in the Ride1Up Cafe Cruiser. I bought one for my wife and myself and was so happy with my purchase that I just ordered a 3rd cafe cruiser, just so we can bring a friend on rides. (otherwise they can't keep up) Since they lowered the price to just over $1K it's a no brainer.The fat tires are the perfect size; not super big 4" tires that make the bike too heavy. These 3" fat tires go over multi-terrain smoothly yet keep the bike from feeling like a tank.The build quality is top notch; from the frame to the battery to the components. I looked a long time to find a Beach Cruiser eBike and they were a lot harder to find than you'd think. But this is exactly what I was looking for.Byron SelmanByron Selman ★★★★★ I recently bought two 700 Series e-bikes from Ride1Up. I considered both Trek and Specialized but consulted with a long time bike expert friend who suggested looking into Ride1Up. What great advice. After looking at specs and pricing I ordered two bikes on a Sunday and they arrived at my home in Texas on Wednesday prepaid FedEx. Very well packed. Assembly was easy and the tools were included. The bikes are very well built with nice components. I have had several text exchanges with their customer service and received all the answers and help that I needed very quickly. We couldn’t be happier with the bikes and with the company. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Five stars across the board.David ChowDavid Chow ★★★★★ After endless youtube videos and net searches, we decided on the Ride1Up Portola bikes and no regrets. The bikes are so well made and enhanced our lifestyle do much.The shipping to Canada was perfect and fast with no dents on the boxes. One bike was missing the release button on the stem and they immediately shipped the whole stem to Canada.Only wished they had a video on how to install the derailleur protector.Thank you Ride1Up for the superb bikes and support all the way to Canada! 😀Gretchen LeeGretchen Lee ★★★★★ We bought 2 Ride1Up 700 series bikes and we LOVE them! I’m 5’ 3”, so I purchased the ST, and my husband purchased the XR. They have been life-changing. We have enjoyed our TREK hybrid bikes and thought we’d never need anything else, but these e-bikes have made our biking way more fun, as we can go forever on them and over any type of hills. We no longer have to think about what would be the best way to get somewhere on bikes. We just do it now! Any road, any hills. So fun!!js_loader

home-top-products-svg Electric Bike FAQ's

How Long Do EBike Batteries Last?

EBikes come with a range of battery sizes, accessories, and warranty periods, and the life span of the battery will vary with how often you ride, your charging habits, and the maintenance you invest in your new bike.

Typically, ebike batteries will last up to about five years if you store your bike in dry conditions, keep the charging ports clean, and avoid discharging the bike completely. Consistently allowing your bike battery to fully discharge will increase the risk of cell degradation and needing to replace the battery for your eBike much sooner!

How Far Can an Electric Bike Go?

The distance an electric bike covers depend on several factors. The main element is the size of the bike battery. After battery capacity, external factors impact the range of an electric bike. Some of these factors include rider weight, terrain, temperature, use of accessories, type, and pressure of tires, use of gearing, inclines, and the level of motor assistance/throttle used during your bike ride,

The range of our top-quality electric bicycles will vary from model to model. Electric bicycles with larger batteries such as the Cafe Cruiser can provide up to fifty miles of range, giving you plenty of capacity for a two-way commute or a weekend bike ride!

Do You Need a License for an Electric Bike?

An electric bike doesn’t usually need a license to ride, and no specific federal laws cover licensing requirements for eBikes. However, state regulations vary, so the best advice is to check out your local DMV site and double-check the licensing requirements in your region before you shop for an electric bike.

Most eBikes do not require insurance, tax, licensing, or registration, but more powerful eBikes might have varying requirements. It’s also worth considering where you plan to ride eBikes because local regulations for a bike driven on the streets can differ.

How Fast Can an EBike Go?

The speed of an eBike depends a lot on the size of the motor on the eBike you decide to purchase. The components built into an eBike monitor speed and stop providing electric assistance when you reach a speed threshold, helping you ride your eBike safely without compromising efficiency. Most ebikes go up to 20 mph and 28 mph on motor assistance.

The majority of Ride1Up’s Class 3 electric bikes are rated to go 28 mph on pedal assist.

Are EBikes Good for Losing Weight?

Yes! The motor on an ebike may make bicycling easier but at the end of the day, you are still staying active and moving your body during your bike ride. Studies show that riding eBikes can support a healthier lifestyle, improving cardio conditioning and brain function. While you have a handy motor to help you out of sticky spots (or steep hills), pedaling an electric bicycle burns around 444 calories an hour–that’s only 20% lower than a conventional bike!

Do Electric Bikes Have Gears?

Yes, eBikes in today’s market offer a variety of multi and single-geared drivetrains. Most common eBike drivetrains come with seven, eight, or nine gears but can go higher on more expensive models.

The accessories and gears on our eBikes vary from model to model to provide riders with options to find the most suitable and comfortable eBikes for their needs. Be sure to compare electric bike models to find the best option for your needs.

Can You Ride Electric Bikes in the Rain?

All our electric bikes are engineered with exceptional quality components, offer unbeatable accessories, and warranty options, and are IP-65-rated water-resistant. This rating means the electric bike is protected from low-pressure water from any direction.

While we do not recommend leaving the e-bikes out in the rain or riding in hazardous conditions due to personal safety, our eBikes can be ridden in the rain and handle water exposure. Just as with any electrical device, keeping the bike dry and protected from the elements will increase the lifespan of the bike.

What Is the Best Electric Bike Out Right Now?

Choosing a high-quality bike can make your daily travel quicker, cheaper, and healthier–but picking the right electric bike is very much a personal choice, depending on a whole host of factors.

For example, you’ll need to consider your budget, the frame style, size, and color you want, and whether you’re after an urban bike, a casual electric bike for occasional trips, or a more powerful bike to tackle tough hills.

Our Core-5 model is an exceptional value e-bike for first-time riders, and the 700 Series is a top-of-the-range model loaded with features for advanced performance. However, we’d recommend considering what you want to prioritize rather than suggesting that one specific model is the best option for every electric bike rider.

Which Cheap Electric Bike Is Best?

All Ride1Up e-bikes offer seriously competitive value, and we’d be reluctant to suggest that the cheapest electric bikes have the level of functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal we believe are important to your bike riding experience. Very cheap e-bikes have reduced power, performance, and longevity and don’t make the cut when it comes to balancing value against quality.

Our advice is to invest in an electric bike designed to withstand the rigors of the road, with each model developed with precision detail to provide the highest possible performance without costing a fortune. When you shop for bikes, you will want to consider price, accessories, warranty policies, customer support, and service options. Test riding various bikes can also be a valuable step to compare different bike options and find the one that best fits your needs.

Is There a Speed Limit on an Electric Bike?

Ride1Up specializes in Class 3 electric bikes–these bikes can reach speeds of up to around twenty-eight MPH and comply with the U.S. federal classification system. Top speeds vary with bike rider weights, terrain, and whether you’re using throttle only or pedal assist. You can find more information about maximum assisted speeds in our product specs and accessories, including advice about adjusting the settings in your bike display in our support platform.

It remains essential to observe local speed limits because not every state has adopted the same classification system. There may be different speed limits for cycle lanes and travel routes that permit electric bikes.

What Are the Three Types of E-Bikes?

Electric bikes are classified as Class 1, 2, or 3 based on the operation of the motor. As a quick summary of the bike classifications:

Class 1 e-bikes have an upper-speed limit of twenty MPH, with a pedal assist-only electric motor.
Class 2 models incorporate throttles, where the motor stops assisting the rider when the bike reaches twenty MPH.
Class 3 electric bikes have a motor, pedal assist, and a maximum speed of approximately twenty-eight MPH.

However, Ride1Up has incorporated a 20 PMH throttle into most of their class 3 bikes too.

How Far Can You Ride an E-Bike Without Pedaling?

Like all things e-bikes, the range is impacted by variables such as whether you’re riding uphill or downhill, the bike motor and battery size, tire spec and condition, and even the strength of the wind!

It’s also worth noting that a bike is designed for pedaling rather than operating like a moped or electric motorbike, which runs solely on the motor. You wouldn’t expect to sit stationary on the bike without pedaling at all, but you can cruise downhill without much pedal power.

You’ll find ranges for each model on our electric bike product page, from twenty to thirty miles on the Roadster V2 to thirty to fifty miles on the LMT’D, Prodigy, 700 Series, and Cafe Cruiser.
