This bike is worth >2K even if it didn’t have a motor. Fantastic ride with excellent components.

Great value for the price. In terms of suggestions: recommend a quick or Allen wrench compatible way to remove rear wheel vs 15 mm wrench; rubber cover on charger port looks like it may not stand test up time. Otherwise no suggestions: worked great on my 25 miles to work with just enough juice to get me there without being totally gassed

I saw a review online and for the price I felt it couldn't be beat. I ended up buying one right away to use a my commuter bike. I thought having some pedal assist would encourage me to commute more, plus the help would be great for headwinds heading home when I'm tired and just want to get home. The weight was about the same as my analog commuter bike so I felt it couldn't be beat. I loaded it with panniers and fenders and it made for the perfect commuter. It cut my commute 8-10 minutes over my analog bike, I don't have to work as hard and don't sweat as much, and with the pedal assist it just feels like you're always in the right gear. I can run it on level 3-5 on my 10 mile ride and I still have a bar left when I get home without charging it during my work day. If you run it lower you'll save some battery, so I change power levels when not needed. Running at 3 is comfortable and I can always go up for hills or headwinds. I feel for what you get; a full carbon frame, fork, one-piece integrated bars, SRAM Rival groupset, and rear hub motor at 28 lbs., it's well worth the price. A comparable product might be something like the LeMond Prologue and that is twice the price, otherwise you're getting a steel or aluminum frame and heavier bike. This was my first dive into ebikes and I love it especially now that I'm older, less flexible, and not as fast or strong as I used to be. To top it off, it's a great looking bike, unlike a lot of ebikes out there.

Nice ride …a bit stiff …but I presume it’s the more sturdy gravel frame …after years of riding full carbon road bikes

The only thing that was a problem was the motor hub cable plug being up behind the bottom bracket next to the controller. I managed to unplug it so that I could pull enough cable back out to remove the wheel. I converted to tubeless. It was good practice for the next time the rear wheel needs to come off. I wish the plug was outside the frame, but I see why it was done this way. I've been on a few rides so far. One ride I did a climb test to see what the effort feels like and range of battery for me. I found that I could get about 1,000 feet of elevation gain and use about 38% of battery. I only needed level 3 power assistance. If I use levels 4 or 5, the motor will use the small 252Wh battery rather fast. So my advice is use the gears to get up those hills or headwinds. I would get a range extender battery if it would charge while plugged into the bikes wiring. It would be a bit of a bother to dig out the plug end from inside the frame just to charge it every time.

CF Racer1 in Rainbow Black. You simply cannot buy a better bike with this level of specs, quality and fit and finish for the price. The Rainbow Black paint job is crazy with it changing hues as the light hits it. The SRAM Rival 1 group set gives quick and crisp shifts. Hidden cables and wires at this price? Zero adjustments were needed when I got the bike. Take it out of the box, assemble and ride. Crazy light at 27lbs for the road version. Hurry up and buy one before R1P realizes what they have and raises the price! Nice job R1P, very nice job.

This bike is a true delight. It is lightweight, good looking, and fast. Full carbon with the exception of the wheels for $2300 is bonkers. I have put over 150 miles on it since I got the bike. It has been such a fun bike. Size 56cm fits my 5’11” frame perfectly. If you want to see more on this I have a few video @RunBikeMike on YouTube. I also installed 50mm tires and went tubeless.

The CF Racer is further proof that Ride1Up will tackle any type of ebike. The CF Racer out-specs anything at or near this price-point. The SRAM components perform well, the display is packed with data and of course the light weight means you can ride it with no assist at all. The only real downside here is size so if you don't fit one of the two sizes you're out of luck. But if you do, well your bank account will thank you.

    I love my cfracer1


    What size (if applicable to your purchase) did you purchase and how did it fit you? : 50cm. I’m 5’3” with a 30” inseam . I feel a bit stretched but it’s ok. I’m a 56 year old cyclist and I was looking for a light ebike for 2 reasons. First to be able to keep up with my husband and second when I don’t feel like climbing back home this bike gets me out and I can be a bit lazy if I want to. I’ve gone for a 30 mile bike ride with my husband and got home with 53% of battery left. With him I use pas of 1 and 2, very little of 3 only when it’s really steep. It only had a short gravel section. I love that I can ride the bike without any assist at all. I absolutely love it, and it’s so quiet too.

    Unbelievable value for the money. Great components, and a carbon fiber frame at this price point is unheard of. BIke wnet together like a snap, and rides fantastic!
