Long time biker here. My first off road ride in about 1985 was on Railroad Grade on Mt. Tam in Marin county Ca, where the genre was invented. Since then I've owned numerous Mt. bikes including a titanium Lightspeed, Santa Cruz, Klein, Breeze and others. I now live in the midwest but bought the LMT'D on a recent visit to California and shipped it home after few rides in Cali. I took it up Tam as a comparison and was surprised at how capable this bike is. I used PAS 1 or 2 on the steeper sections due to a lack of a true granny gear and found the overall effort was about the same as my other bikes. It took about the same time to climb to the east peak of Tam and the effort was similar as well. Even with the non-knobby stock tires, the bike felt nimble and capable both up and, most importantly, down. Having ridden for over forty years, and at this point in my life, I appreciate having a motor to help getting home after a long ride. I'm happy to share that the LMT'D did not disappoint when compared to my other very high end rides on a trail I'm very familiar with. Here it is at the famous resting spot called West Point Inn about 2/3 up Tam. And a snap of the bike with its current mods.

At 180 miles on the odometer, this runs excellently! This review is for the ride1up lmt'd ST (cadence sensor.) Battery performance from 95% to 30% battery using level 1 pedal assistance (150 watt drive average at 11mph) everywhere constantly. 176 minutes of continuous run time. 34 miles. I also added 10 hills >45 degrees that are impossible alone [would be walking up those] pushing 1000watts per hill I would say this bike lives up the claim of 30-50 mile per charge advertising. I am an obese (260 lbs) rider and 30 lbs overweight on the bike.

Fantastic bike. Upgraded from a 700 with over 3,500 miles. The 700 is still holding up just fine, but wanted to try out the Limited. No regrets with my purchase. Such a great bike.

Performance meets value in the Ride1Up Lmt'd. This is my first e-bike, and having put in my first 100 miles, I wanted to give my impression. Obviously, it might change with time, and I'm not in the position to compare it with other e-bikes I've owned, but all of my days of research have led me to this model. First--the positives. It arrived nicely protected, with only a minor paint flaw you'd only see on close inspection. Assembly was straightforward enough, but only thanks to the video. The headset assembly was the only place I had to really look that up. Build seems solid, upgraded components are good brand name companies, and the finished look is stealth enough that people don't even notice it's an e-bike (until I zoom past them). 1000w of peak power means it's worthy of my favorite trail, and keeps my legs from turning to jelly. Range has been quite acceptable when you keep the PAS levels low. I've done a few 25 mile rolling hill rides and come back with over 85% power reserve thanks to using the PAS sparingly. For me, the cons are somewhat personal. I could use a few extra inches in the frame, as my riding position is a bit too upright (I'm only 5'9). Seat was swapped out for a more comfortable one. I ditched the pedals for some anodized aluminum ones with much better 'bite' on my riding shoes. Kickstand occasionally hits against my shoes if I'm not mindful of my foot angle. My standard water bottle will not fit, thanks to the low clearance below the seat tube. I've had to go with aftermarket front bottle holder in an already limited space handlebar. The only thing keeping this from being 5 stars is the very generic front fork that is either "too soft", or "locked". I would have ponied up more for a better front shock, even though this was near the top of my budget range already. It's overkill for a commuter, but makes a very solid errand/light trail bike. Compared to the other similar offerings I researched, this one is the value leader for sure.

Love the bike! I can keep pace with my husband and I can pass him on the hills now. I use level 1 and 2 to give me a good work out. With out this bike I would not ride, it's no fun getting left behind on rides.

About 3 months and 900km later, I absolutely love this bike! Couple small issues out of the box: -------------------------------------------------- - Battery snaps into place without being flush with the rest of the frame. You can see it has room to travel downwards if I apply pressure... But this is extremely minor - Seems to be a weird paint mishap around the logo on the frame. Hard to capture, but there is a brush of darker paint there or something, and the logo is a bit obscured. Real world range: ------------------------- - A 30km ride using Pedal Assist Level (PAL) 2 the whole time, the battery percentage read 15% at the end of my ride. - A 30km ride using PAL 3 would drops the battery below 15% - Anything below 15% is dangerous territory, since at around 9% is when PAL will stop completely - The battery seems to have an inconsistent reading of the battery, which can be annoying... For example: after when the battery dropped to 15% from my 30km ride at PAL 2, when I let the bike sit idle for a few minutes, the battery indicator shot up to 44%! If I were to start riding it again, this reading would quickly drop back down... - It seems that perhaps when the battery gets hot enough, the bike starts throttling the power available, which would make sense (just something to consider) In general: --------------- - This bike is an absolute joy to ride - Pedal assist will help you go farther and get more out of your bike - I have put way more biking kms in this year than I ever have at this time, just because riding this bike is so much fun! - With the value for cost, I recommend it to anyone looking for an electric bike!

The bike has been a great computer. I have no complaints. With the videos, my husband, who is familiar with bikes and bike maintenance, was easily able to assemble it. I also bought the trailer which has been great for my dog.

Ride1Up bike review I purchased a Ride1Up LMT’D about 3 weeks ago and waited until I put 100 miles on the bike so I could give a detailed review. After riding a friend’s e-bike I decided that was the way to go and began my search. Today it seems that everyone is making an e-bikes so I really dove into research on the internet. Reading articles, watching videos and comparing features brought me to Ride1Up. How and where you ride is an important decision in e-bike selection. I mostly ride paved bike trails and bike lanes on city streets so that’s what I focused on. A class 3 bike with a throttle was a must as well as disk brakes and front suspension. Gave a very hard look at the 700 series before deciding on the LMT’D as I would not be using it to commute to work or run errands. Frame selection was also a factor. I like the ease of the step through frame but went with the XC style as I think it would be stronger for my riding weight of 242 lbs. Bike was well padded in its shipping box with only some very minor frame scratches. It comes with a BBT-22 tool that in not the best quality. It had a lot of flashing on the teeth that had to be filed down to fit. I recommend getting a higher quality one like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Park-Tool-BBT-22-Shimano-Cartridge/dp/B001A0AIAG/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1CV78GW4VA5ST&dchild=1&keywords=bbt-22+bottom+bracket+tool&qid=1619213672&sprefix=bbt-22%2Caps%2C246&sr=8-2 Assembly went well after watching the assembly video, reading the bike manual and fixing the BBT-22 tool. Pumped up the tires, checked the charge on the battery and took it out for a short test ride. Handling was great, shifting was crisp and precise, motor response was amazing. One small fly in the ointment was a strange sound and slight jerk on each chain revolution. No such noise or jerk using throttle only. Back in the garage I put it on the bike rack (recommended) and spotted the problem right away. One link in the chain was frozen. In my 55+ years of bike riding I have never encountered this so I was a bit puzzled. Contacted Ride1Up and they referred me to a service video dealing with that exact problem. Following the steps shown I resolved the problem and when riding the next day. Now the fun really ramped up. In level 3 power assist I could hit the advertised 28 MPH. It felt like I was Lance Armstrong winning the Tour De France! During my first 100 miles I did have a flat tire and of course it was on the rear! Luckily it went flat after I made it home so I had all my tools and a bike stand at my disposal. First I watched the video on how to remove the rear tire being careful of the battery connector. Here is where it got interesting. On the LMT’D there are extra brackets on the axle bolts that have to be undone. After that and loosening the axle nuts the rear wheel is supposed to come right out of the drop-outs. On my bike they will not come out or re-install without removing the derailleur! This sucks because this will throw off your shifting. Again there is a video on how to adjust the derailleur and I fixed it. So that is my major gripe with this bike. If they could somehow fix it so the rear tire and rim comes off the dropouts without removing the derailleur it would be ideal. That said, would I buy this bike again? Absolutely! Comparing it to other bikes on the market I believe it has features of bikes costing $1,000.00 to $2,000.00 more. Smooth ride, good power, great brakes, wonderful handling.

Finished assembling mine last night at 1:30a...and had to ride it. It flies and is smooth while moving quickly. I'm 5'4" and bought the XR. It's a bit tough to stand over, but I like the ride and riding geometry a lot (it's at a good place on the spectrum between aggressive and comfortable, for me). Only one snag assembling it (one of the gaskets on the head tube would 'seat' itself), but relatively simple. Can't wait until the next ride. Thanks again to Apollo for talking me through my decision process. Comfortable seat, excellent tires, torquey motor, torque sensor, solid front shock, stealthy look, decent battery and nice components...if you have shopped like I did for the past few months, and you don't want a behemoth fat tire for road riding, the Lmt'd is the clear winner.

I’m a longtime road cyclist and the LMT’D was my first dip into the e-bike world. Before purchasing it I spent a few weeks agonizing over the decision and comparing it to other models, both from R1UP and a handful of other companies. I’m so glad I went with the LMT’D. In the five or so months I’ve had it, it’s completely exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier. It doesn’t feel like a beast. Maybe it’s because the only other e-bike I’ve ridden was a 60+ pounder that I rented for a day, but I definitely don’t feel at all like I’m straining to handle this bike or keep it upright. I live in the mountains, and it handles super-smoothly, taking tight downhill curves like a charm. Within a half hour of riding the bike felt like an extension of my body. The only time I really notice its weight is when I’m wheeling it out of my garage and over a small concrete barrier. One of the reasons I decided to get an e-bike was because I'd been dealing with on-and-off-again chronic lower back pain. The riser bars are super-comfortable and secure-feeling and put me in an almost upright riding position, which my lower back appreciates. In fact, riding the LMT’D with a little bit of assistance has given me enough confidence to get back into road riding, another great perk. It’s been a perfect bridge. The other reason is to cut down on short car trips and take my two year old around on local backroads. Check, and check. You can definitely get a good workout in if you want to. On the hills/mountains around here, even the highest PAS setting and throttle can’t save you, at least not for long. After each big climb my heart was pounding, and my legs are worn out, in a good way, the day after any long ride. I use the throttle sparingly, for 10 to 15 seconds at a time, max. It’s ridiculously fun, but I enjoy it more when I only indulge on special occasions. I dream about riding this thing, and I’ll take any excuse to wheel it out. Not only that, but I can definitely see it replacing my car for lots of errands. I see many happier years ahead!

My first e-bike and I couldn’t ask for a better one! I ride it about 8 miles a day on fairly flat surfaces and the power is amazing, very quiet, and can go over gravel, large bumps, small bumps, unexpected sticks in the road, and basically anything else you can imagine while riding around town. My 6 pound dog loves riding in a front basket I attached to it! I have used it a few times up very steep trails and she said it has amazing power! I changed the seat for more padding, I am 5’6” and I think the frame could be a bit tall if you are much shorter than that. I have the seat on lowest setting. I love the “oomph” it has but do with it had some more color choices. I contacted them a few times and they responded within a few hours to some questions I had.

My LMT’D st. First the positive news... delivery was only a week, assembly was easy, the bike looks great, plenty of power for hills, able to go 47 miles on PAS, ..28 mph is easy to achieve, comfortable seat, Negative part...motor makes more noise than anticipated, screw missing, chain was twisted and link needed to be removed, At 53+ pounds the bike is heavy witch gives you a solid ride. Looking for Ebikers in Escondido Ca. Been riding for two months....190 miles. Plan on an update after 500+- miles. Chuck????????????

Purchased the Lmtd its my 1st e bike and I’m in love with how quick the bike gets up to speed I already have 40 miles on it so far and I really like it the battery for me is a little on the low end barely achieving the 30 miles but I’m not a light rider I would say I’m about 210 lbs and I’ve used it on the level 3 PAS…. great bike took me quite some research but this is the best bang for your buck it was between the Aventon and this and I chose this glad I did

    4th Review – The Broken Spoke Saga

    After calling a dozen very reputable bikes shops in San Francisco I finally found 3rd Rail e-bike shop. Remember this place if you live near the city. They were able to replace the spokes and true the wheel. Rode to work and back home today only to find 2 other spokes are now broken. Bike is disabled again and I can’t ride to work.
    Regarding Ride1Up customer support, they basically told me I was on my own to fix my 20 day old 130 mile bike and directed me to 2 websites to order replacement spokes. Both have multi week lead times. Not good customer service Ride1Up, you should carry replacement parts.
    Also, I would recommend buying spokes in advance in the recommended lengths so you can fix the bike ASAP. They have the info on their website.

    I really like the bike, but this spoke issue has to stop.

    My LMTD included an integrated headlight. Very happy about this. The brakes are challenging in the rear to get rid of the rubbing on both Ride1Up bikes I have purchased, but other than that assembly was very easy. I added fenders and the rack.

    3rd Review – Broken Spokes

    130 miles in 20 days and I love the bike. However, 2 spokes have broke in the rear. Ride1Up is directing me to purchase new spokes on the web with lengthy lead times. No bike shops in San Francisco carry 13 gauge spokes. I am literally up a street without a spoke. Boooo. Some improvement is needed is this area with Ride1Up, especially with a brand new bike 20 days old. Aargh. Not happy

    Review of LMT’D XR: Part II (after 1 month and 75 miles)

    If you already have owned or ridden an eBike, you’re not coming at a purchase blind. But I never had owned or ridden one so I think it’s helpful to have a newbie perspective.

    First, torque vs. cadence sensor. I’ve had experience only with the torque on the LMT’D. I chose it because the trusted reviews I read or watched all said it provided a more natural bike-riding experience. Cadence may be great but I can certainly vouch for the fact that Ride1Up has dialed in the torque sensors on the LMT’D very nicely. It does feel natural.

    As to whether or not you can assemble the bike yourself, I didn’t although I have disassembled bikes down to the last nut and bolt and reassembled them again for overhauls. It cost me $120.00 for my local trusted bike shop guy to put it together. It was worth it to me because I’m not familiar with eBikes and perhaps wouldn’t know if there was a problem because of some defective part or because I just didn’t know what I was doing. Also, it’s a great way to get your bike shop guy invested in your bike. I’m going to need him in the future to take care of me.

    Customer service was excellent. I had a minor problem with some dings on the paint and it was quickly resolved. Buying something large online is always a risk but I feel confident that you can trust this company to basically not screw you. If you’re reasonable, they are going to take care of you.

    I found the ride of the LMT’D to be just slightly more stiff than my regular mountain bike. I felt the jars and jolts just a bit more. I’m assuming that is because the frame is a little stiffer. For some, a suspension seat post might be nice. But I found much of that was dampened by simply adding a SuperSo seat cushion over the top of the existing seat. I suspect that paying a little more for the LMT’D in order to get the air fork is probably a sound investment. I just assume that bikes without a suspension fork are going to be even more jarring when you hit any kind of pothole or such.

    I took the bike back to some narrow, winding, root-filled trails in the dense woods that I mentioned in my first review. I did better this time. But the bike is still not quite what I would call nimble. But I think more accomplished (and perhaps slightly lighter…I’m 6 foot ½ inch and weight 197) riders would do better. You can certainly make it work for many off-off-road trails.

    So far no dirty looks from other bicyclists or hikers because I’m on an eBike. And because these bikes look like normal bikes, I think that helps them to blend into the scenery, if you will. People are pretty laid back in the Northwest about these sort of things. But I know that in other places, people can be more militant. I may do a part III review if it warrants it in a few months or so. But so far, so good.

    First Week Impressions:

    Rode to work twice this week. 20 Miles roundtrip. I am 215 pounds, I leave the bike on PAL 3 the entire time and I pretty much push the bike right up the 28 MPH for the entire duration of the ride when I can. I really like the class 3 speed especially on a bikepath that is next to a street. I feel safer moving at the same speed as cars vs having them pass me. Overall, no issues. Shifting is smooth and the brakes work great. The battery makes the round trip and I get home with about 25% left in the tank. Really happy with the purchase.

    Set up and first ride impressions:

    Shipping
    • Ordered the bike on Thursday and it arrived on Saturday, super quick.
    • The bike is packed super good, no issues!
    The Build
    • During the unpacking, remove the battery and start charging to get ahead of the charge curve.
    • The build took about 1.5 hours, taking my time and watching the video.
    • I have been riding steady for 20 years and have basic bike repair knowledge. If you know how to change a flat, you should be good to put the bike together.
    • After unpacking the first item is installing the fork. The compression ring was a little challenging and took several attempts to get seated.
    • The rest was smooth, it took several attempts to get the front disc brake lined up and not rubbing the pads.
    • Shifting appears to be lined up and working properly out of the box.
    • The in no PSI for the tires mentioned anywhere in the build video. I went with 40 PSI.
    • I do not have a shock pump but they appear to be OK with the PSI. I will check at a bike shop.
    First Ride
    • This is my 2nd Ebike. The first was an entry level class 1 that died after a year of use.
    • Wow, super responsive and quick acceleration.
    • Shifting was good and clean.
    • Brakes feel good and stop quickly.
    • Going up a slight hill with PAL @ 3 and doing close to 28 MPH is a BLAST!

    Can’t wait to ride this to work, will provide another update after a few months.
