When will the Rift ship out? minus plus

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

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)

Can I test ride an ebike? minus plus

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

Update- Took our first ride and fortunate to live here in Colorado to experience this bike. Bottom line, it is a beast. Right out of the box, easy assembly, and no adjustments before our first ride. Tried all functions and everything worked beautifully. Have read reviews concerning the hesitancy before the PAF kicks in but it is so minor that it is literally a non-issue. Throttle worked beautifully and the PAF is truly amazing. I can see where we will be expanding our exploration from where we left off on our mountain bikes, with the next planned trip to Moab. Motor or tire noise was another non-issue and really never noticed it. Overall, you will not be disappointed with this bike. We are anxious to get back out for another ride and thankfully received a nice December Colorado sunny day to enjoy our first ride.

This looks like a great bike and ordered one during the black friday sale in the month of November ($300 discount btw for about two weeks during black friday). But that’s all i could say about the bike since it’s still shipping. 99% of the reviews on this site have very little to no delays concerning their shipping. I unfortunately am part of the 1%. I ordered the bike on Nov 20. It shipped out the 27th via Alliance Air Freight from Salt Lake City with the destination in California. Please note that for big bikes like this and the revv… the site notes “The Rift is shipped via LTL freight to the to preserve quality and reduce shipping related issues. Shipping during demand surges brought on by understaffing or seasonal influx can experience delays outside of normal estimates. There are times when shipping will take 4-6 days longer than it would have under ordinary circumstances. If you have received a tracking number, but there is no movement on your tracking number, please be patient. Once your package is in the freight carrier's possession, we cannot speed up the movement or delivery. Thank you for your patience!” So patient we shall be as we enter the 16th day of this shipping adventure. I will have a follow up review of the actual bike once i actually get the bike of course.

I’m 70. As a kid I could make a bike dance. Not so much anymore. I live in an urban area and use the Rift for local hops to the market, about 3/4 miles away. I also take it out each morning for a 2-4 mile run over a large recreation center, level, grass playing field. This bike is heavy and the cross bar is a bit awkward to get over given my age. These morning runs are my attempt to get in better shape to ride, get used to the ride characteristics of the bike, and get some mobility exercise. All good. I’m hoping that my riding ability becomes more intuitive. All that said, be ready for the weight of the bike. If, like me, you are older, maybe a lower cross bar model is better. Plenty of power at #I power setting, using mid-gear. Hills flatten right out. Assembly was easy enough with the provided instructions. Rock solid. BTW: When I pull into the market, someone always wants to know about the bike and my experience in riding it. You can just see they want one so they can ditch their car for short rides.

    I would definitely recommend this bike to anyone who wants power combined with comfort. A torque is noteworthy, brakes are more than adequate, and for the relatively small amount of money the return on the investment is outstanding.

      Thank you Thomas, the Rift is a great bike with a lot of usable power the fatter tires help transfer that power to the ground and they also make for a plush ride.

    My son uses almost every day to commute to university. Saves on gas and parking. The commute is about the same time. It’s sturdy and the fat tires are awesome in the snow!!
