Ride1upExcellentRide1up4.6 Based on 962 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onTaylor SheridanTaylor Sheridan ★★★★★ Fantastic experience with Ride1Up customer service! After 2 years, my bike started having problems charging. I reached out to their customer service team, and I was pleasantly surprised by their responsiveness and willingness to help. They not only diagnosed the problem swiftly but also went above and beyond by promptly sending me a complimentary replacement part to fix the issue.Carlos GarciaCarlos Garcia ★★★★★ S WS W ★★★★★ Very satisfied Ride1Up customer here. After developing painful lower back issues that prevented me from enjoying my road bike, I began researching ebikes to keep me on the road going forward. I researched for over a year, comparing bike specs from different companies and test riding ebikes in person. I chose a Prodigy from Ride1Up and I'm so glad I did. It has outstandingly performed in two essential areas.1. Bike geometry to ease the strain on my back. The Prodigy positions you slightly forward. This issue was especially important. I didn't not want to sit straight up on the bike but not so forward that my back pain was triggered. The Prodigy strikes a perfect balance. I was thrilled to arrive home after my first ride with no pain.2. Torque. The Prodigy's 90 nm Brose mid-drive motor rips. I live in a valley surrounded by steep hills. If I want to get anywhere it involves hill climbing. Powerful assist when I need it was an important requirement and the Prodigy outperforms my expectations. There is nowhere I can't go!I did immediately replace the seat with a women's specific brand but that's just me. The seat the Prodigy comes with may suit others perfectly.But wait, there's more! 21 days after I received my bike, I got a text from Ride1Up offering a free battery with the purchase of a Prodigy. Since I plan on riding long distances I knew I needed a second battery. I contacted Ride1Up asking if they would kindly include me in this offer despite having already made my purchase. The answer was yes! They immediately sent me a free battery and didn't even charge me shipping. Now that's an awesome company in my book. They really care about their customers. So when I say I'm a satisfied customer, I really mean it. The Prodigy came in perfect condition, was easy to put together, has quality components and zips me around with ease. Thank you Ride1Up for creating an awesome ebike. I'm loving it!Stephen CostelloStephen Costello ★★★★★ Great store and great bikes! Rodolpho was awesome!L GL G ★★★★★ Best place to get an e-bike. Awesome customer service. Rudy definitely knows his stuff.Gene OliverGene Oliver ★★★★★ I bought my first ebike totally online. A M2S bike. It was a great bike but was too large for me. I hurt myself a few times getting on or off. I decided that I had to ride any other before I purchased. On a different note, my wife is 4'11". So again we had to test ride first to assure a proper fit.I found Ride1Up eBikes online and read all the reviews, both on Google and other sites. All looked good for a purchase. Then I found Ride1Ups San Diego's storefront.The stars aligned for us when our travels took us to San Diego. This is where my review should really start. Our meeting with Rudy in the store at 415 Laurel, San Diego.His helpfulness set the deal for my wife and me. With two sizes and needs for an ebike for us, Rudy set a Cafe Cruiser ST for me to test drive. San Diego hills and the torque sensor on the Ride1Up proved the ebike to me. Rudy talked to us about the LMT'D V2 and it's advantagesSince my wife was not shoe'd correctly to ride A bike we had to return the next day.Overnight I did more reviewing and found another bike with the same dimensions of the LMT'D V2 ST which made for a test ride for wifey. Again, Rudy set everything up for her and off she went!When she returned, it was agreed that 2 Ride1Up bikes would be purchased. One Copper and 1 white. Now we wait for their delivery.Since the purchase we have had to contact Customer Service about changes in shipping. It was a quick and easy transaction that satisfied our changing needs. It proved to us that people make Ride1Up the company to purchase a ebike from. So far I can ensure you to will make the correct choice with these eBikes.I may add to this review once we receive the bikes. Stay tuned.Christopher LittleChristopher Little ★★★★★ Great bikes for the money, OUTSTANDING customer service and support. I’ve recommended Ride1Up to my friends and family.David JakubowskiDavid Jakubowski ★★★★★ Love my bike and the company. I had a broken part on the bike and they replaced it without question. Happy riding!!!Umut AkovaUmut Akova ★★★★★ Ride1Up has revolutionized my biking experience. Their electric bikes are not only stylish and powerful but also incredibly affordable. The quality is outstanding, and their customer service is second to none.Response from the ownerThank you for the kind words. 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.
