FAQ'S
Can I test ride a bike?
No. We are a direct-to-consumer company both in pricing and strategy. You will generally pay a premium for the ability to test ride.

    Great bike for the price. Looks sleek and less “ebike” than most bikes. Some initial issues with display/control that were likely due to this being a completely new product, but Kevin and Alexander handled it quickly and beyond what I asked.

    O.K. I’m in love with my Core 5. It’s the first flush of love- where you don’t care that you look a little odd as a couple because it’s just a little too tall for a 5’6” guy, it’s ‘+/- ‘ assist buttons are just a smidgen of a reach for smaller hands, and it leaves grease on the bed sheets that are impossible to launder out.

    I don’t care that it came with two small scars on the battery top, or that I had to work with email support to fix a problem that kept the battery from seating correctly at first. Every new relationship has it’s kinks. It’s got the longest head tube that I’ve ever seen, but it keeps me in an upright riding position that’s quite comfortable and now I love to stroke that tube and gently murmur sweet nothings into the headset.

    But seriously, it’s a wonderful bike. Aside from the aforementioned issues, it came very well packed in an almost undamaged box- and more fully assembled than expected with both cranks already attached. Small, thoughtful touches like bearing sets that are already greased, rear derailleur and both disc brakes already correctly adjusted, chain already lubed, reflectors on both wheels and two more in the box (just can’t figure out how the attach to their mounts for the life of me) some cool stickers to stick on things- this doesn’t feel like a baseline model when you unpack it. Did I mention that it’s beautiful? The blue color is actually much darker and grayer than the photos with a satin finish. Very sophisticated. People will come over and compliment you on being such a good-looking couple.

    I’m around 160lb, and this thing is a rocket. I’ve only had it on mostly level ground, and for two days I’ve kept the assist level at 1 for almost all of the time. Truthfully, I almost spend more time on the brakes, keeping the speed down (crowded parks) than pedaling. I assume that having a cadence sensor, rather than a torque sensor is mostly responsible for that- a few strokes on the pedals with lots of gliding easily kept me around 18mph. The downside is that I don’t feel like it’s the best workout, for that I’ll turn the assist off and find myself pedaling a heavy bike around. I wanted the big power this has because I anticipate riding up long grades and steep hills, but for most circumstances (with my light weight) my new baby is almost overpowered.

    I’ve ridden on ebikes that feel a bit like piloting a ship, but even with the cadence sensor this one still feels like a bicycle. Good weight distribution means reasonable agility, the solid fork gives lots of feedback, and the bike feels kinda nimble for it’s size- especially after angling down the commuter bars a bit. You can definitely feel the total mass- it’s never going to be like a 24lb drop-bar racer, or a bike messenger’s fixie but it never wallows or floats. Quite stable at the speeds I’ve had it (up to 22mph.) Overall, the bike gives the feeling that someone’s spent some time making sure that all the components work well together- it feels like a single unit, not like a bunch of mismatched parts if that makes sense. If you want to feel more involved with the bike on a moment-by-moment basis, my suggestion would be to get the LTD version with torque sensor, but if you like the feeling of having the bike do most of the work for you while you admire the beauty of the world on long rides this is the one to get.

    So that’s first impressions of a giddy new ebike owner. Maybe should have waited for more than 40 miles of riding to write this, but I’m in love- what can you do?

    Just received my new Core-5 and it’s an absolute beast and exhilarating to ride. I immediately fell in love with the bike and the frame of the XR is an eye catcher. I get compliments where ever I go and I’m having a blast with it. Ride1Up did a great job making this ebike, do not pass this up! In addition, the wheels have K-Shield protection! A screw punctured my back wheel, but luckily, the K-Shield protected my wheel from the screw entering the wheel. Therefore, my Core-5 is still operable even after that incident. Thank you Ride1Up for making such an awesome ebike!
