FAQ'S

minus plus
What is a Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)? minus plus

In short, a continuous variable transmission or CVT is an internal gear hub – It takes the functionality of a traditional cassette and derailleur system and packs it all into the rear hub in an enclosed unit. There are a range of added benefits with having this kind of drivetrain that you can learn more about in this article: What is a CVT?

What Does Mid-Drive Mean on an Ebike? minus plus

A mid-drive electric bike means that the motor of the electric bike is mounted in the center of the frame near the bottom bracket, providing power to the crank. This is in contrast to hub motor designs, where the electric motor is in the front or back wheel.
The mid-drive system provides more efficient power transfer, allowing the rider to use the gears of the electric bike for a more natural riding experience and electric motor performance. The position of the motor also allows for a more stable ride as the weight is distributed closer to the center of gravity, as well as more responsive handling with greater torque and hill-climbing ability.

How Fast Can a Mid-Drive Ebike Go? minus plus

The speed of a mid-drive electric bike is dependent on several factors, such as the power output of the motor and battery capacity. Generally speaking, Class 1 and Class 2 ebikes stop assisting the rider at twenty MPH, while Class 3 ebikes, like the Prodigy, will provide assistance up to twenty-eight MPH. This ebike system has incredible performance for all riders.

Are Mid-Drive Electric Bikes More Efficient? minus plus

Yes, mid-drive ebikes are more efficient than hub motor designs. This is mainly because the electric motor is able to use the bike’s gears and the power is transferred directly to the crank instead of the wheels. This means that you can get more out of each full charge with this electric bike. Keep in mind that although mid-drive motors use the bike’s gears, this doesn’t mean you can’t ride your e-bike if the battery runs out. You just won’t have the extra power that the electric motor provides. Ebikes can still be ridden without the electric motor just like you would ride a traditional bike.

How Long Do Mid-Drive Ebike Motors Last? minus plus

The lifespan and performance of a mid-drive electric bike motor depend on the components’ quality and how it is used. Generally, you can expect your electric bike motor to last anywhere between three and ten years; just make sure to keep up with regular maintenance and follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.
This includes keeping your electric motor dry, as mid-drive motors tend to rust faster than their hub drive counterparts. Protecting and taking care of your ebikes will improve their lifespan and maintain their performance.

Is a Mid-Drive Ebike Better? minus plus

It depends on what kind of riding experience you are looking for. For some, a mid-drive electric bike is often considered to be the better option because they offer more efficient power transfer, better hill climbing performance, and more responsive handling by having a more natural riding feel as you pedal.
Additionally, they tend to be lighter than hub motor designs, making them a better choice for longer rides. These ebikes are also more reliable, making them a great option for regular use.
However, they tend to be the most expensive e-bike motor design, so if you’re on a budget, a hub electric motor may be a better option. Ultimately, this depends on your individual needs and preferences.

Do Any Mid-Drive E-Bikes Have a Throttle? minus plus

Yes–some mid-drive ebikes do have a throttle. However, most big electric bike companies tend to rely solely on pedal-assist for their mid-drive ebikes, because when you install a throttle on a mid-drive electric bike, the chain wear and tension might be too great. This could lead to a broken chain and render the bike inoperable, hindering the overall performance.

Can I test ride a bike? minus plus

We are a direct-to-consumer ebikes company both in pricing and strategy. Riders will generally pay a premium for the ability to test-ride ebikes through a dealer. However, our bikes have been thoroughly tested by top reviewers such as Electric Bike Review, Electric Bike Report, Cycling Weekly, CleanTechnica, Electrek, and many others who have published their reviews on YouTube. Additionally, we are now supporting an independent network of owners offering their ebikes for demos. Learn more here Locations

What can I expect ordering a bike from Ride1Up? minus plus

This article will explain all about what to expect when ordering ebikes from us. Ordering With Us

Can I upgrade the battery? minus plus

Unfortunately, this electric bike frame’s 14ah battery pack is the largest available.

Can I switch the handlebars to another model? minus plus

No. The variations you see on the site are the only options we have for our ebikes.

Can you ship to _______? minus plus

We only ship ebikes within North America. The Continental United States is FREE. Shipping to Canada is $400. Currently, not shipping to Hawaii. We are not responsible for any additional tariffs charged by your local government which is often applied after importing. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship our ebikes directly to Europe or Alaska at this time. You can use a shipping forwarder like ShopUsa.com to reach your country.

Are the bikes water-proof? minus plus

The ebikes are not water-proof, they are water-resistant, rated IP-65. While we do not recommend leaving the ebikes out in the rain or riding in the rain or other hazardous conditions due to personal safety, the ebikes can handle water exposure and still maintain their performance.

When will the Prodigy ship out? minus plus

In-stock Prodigy electric bike models require extra processing time and will ship out within 2-3 business days of placing your order. The Prodigy is shipped via LTL freight to preserve quality and reduce shipping related issues.

After your order has processed and left our warehouse, please expect approximately 5-10 business days for additional transit time and delivery. Delivery appointment is required and delivery times are dependent on availability by local distribution centers. (Note – Canadian orders are excluded from LTL Freight due to extended shipping timelines and shipped via FedEx ground)

I wrote a review once, but it appears to not have made it on the website. I've been a ride1up customer with having bought a lmt'd before and have been intrigued about the prodigy v2 since it was announced. Every other day I would look at the ride1up site to read reviews and validate it was worth purchasing and I finally pulled the trigger last Sunday, with the bike arriving that following Friday. Overall the bike is excellent. It arrived nicely wrapped in a box, which I thought could be lifted so the bottom stays and you can work on the bike, but unfortunately I had to lift the bike out of the box. They provide all the tools except for a philips screw driver, but the install went very smooth with the exception of aligning the front fender. That took a few tweaks but is very solid. All in all the assembly maybe took an hour and watching the install video is more accurate because the printed instructions skip installing the handebars and aligning the fork. I've ridden the bike 50 miles already and it quite possibly could be the best bike I've ever ridden. The motor and carbon fiber belt have almost zero noise, the handlebars are in a great spot and the seat is decent. I did add a suspension seat post which makes the ride even smoother. If there are two gripes, however, I would say it's battery life and the weight of the bike. Prior to this prodigy, I had a Giant Quick E+ which at the low setting gave me 86 miles of range. On the prodigy I am lucky to get 30 at the 'tour' setting. Some of that could be explained since I am a bigger rider (250lbs) and the bike itself is 60lbs. Lifting that thing on a bike rack may be impossible for someone who is weak, but in eco mode the weight while riding feels like it disappears. Good thing is R1Up sells a separate battery, but bad thing is they are heavy and awkward to bring with you on a ride. One thing to note is that the wires on top of the motor appeared to be in very close contact with the belt, so I added a zip tie to make sure it didn't rub. This is probably something that can be fixed in future models. I hope anyone looking at this bike can use this review to help with their decision. The bike is great and will be with me for a long time.

    The attention to detail at this price point is impressive, reminiscent of my Specialized Vado 4, albeit with distinct features. Riding mostly in ECO mode, I estimate around 85 miles on a single charge at approximately 60% support. I am also a big guy. Opting for the Tour setting at 100%, the 4-piston disc brakes outshine those on my Trek 8s, and even the “unbranded” air fork performs admirably. While the absence of a light-off feature and ANT+ support for Garmin pairing is noted, the bike’s whisper-silent operation and impressive speed, reaching 28mph effortlessly in Sport mode, make it a standout. Considering the competitive price, the Prodigy V2 from Ride1up is a compelling choice, especially when compared to higher-priced alternatives like the Vado 3. Would I recommend and repurchase the Prodigy V2? Absolutely, without hesitation.

    My Prodigy V2 is great to ride; have a few hundred miles so far. I use for daily 4 mile work commute each way. It came shipped with defective stem (one bolt hole stripped) and plastic battery cover broke after a month of riding. Customer service was good helping with both but still a pain given shipping time. Also, the head light is good but original setup angles light too sharply downward rendering it practically useless for illuminating street safety – I reconfigured by flipping stem plate mount so light is mounted on top of stem for better range of adjustment and illumination. I previously had 700 series. Prodigy V2 is way smoother ride and I don’t miss throttle. This rides more like good quality hybrid bike. Overall great bike but quality control could be better. the drive belt, motor and hub shifting are amazing and maintenance-free – no-brainer to select that option. The Prodigy V2’s value far exceeds competition. Also, it’s so easy to remove rear wheel compared to most other ebikes. I would definitely purchase again without hesitation.
