This is my first Ebike and I’ve put over 300 miles on it in my first month of ownership. The first week of riding the battery would only last 20 miles, but as my legs gained strength the battery will last me 35 miles on a single charge. Delivery took exactly 7 days from ordering to arrive in Salem MA. The order processing was quick and you will need to sign your package with FedEx. I’d recommend this for someone who wants to go out biking, but doesn’t have the leg strength to tackle big hills. Having the power assist gives you a sense of confidence that you don’t have with acoustic bikes. This bike is a car replacement for me and the simple design keeps maintenance to the minimum. While the bike is light for an Ebike, it’s heavy compared to a non electric road bike. Without the pedal assist you feel the extra weight of the batteries and resistance with the belt drive. To access the internal batteries on the bike frame the screw has a torx bit. For people without tools, having a torx bit screw driver included would be a nice addition to the Alan keys that come with the order. The internal battery compartment is perfect for storing an AirTag, and having an unusual screwbit will make this harder for a thief to disable. Overall I’m very happy with the purchase. It’s been incredibly reliable, fun to ride and a great design.

Nice bike! The frame welding is excellent, the seat is surprisingly comfortable, and the Gates belt drive is glorious. It’s significantly heavier than my other bikes but that’s an e-bike trade-off. Note that it is 36 lbs and not 33 lbs as advertised. That’s more than 9% heavier than stated. So far, range is not an issue for me in my typical 15-20 mile rides, but I usually don’t turn power on until I turn around to come back home. I’m typically riding at only 14-15 mph without power and then faster on the way back in. Windy days near the ocean are much better for riding now with a little power boost available as needed. Everything is working as expected - quietly and without all the greasy parts. Minor problem - using the secondary water bottle location as the only location is inconvenient and I’d guess that most folks have trouble reaching it while riding. I know the battery location complicates things, but with the steep seat tube, the water bottle really needs to be accessible on the down tube. If asked, my recommendations would be: 1. Add one or more USB outlets to power lights, phone, etc. And make sure they can be used to charge equipment at the same time the bike is charging. 2. Include instructions in the manual on how to remove the rear wheel to fix a flat and provide the 18mm wrench needed. Or figure out how to design the bike with a skewer or through axle instead. 3. Consider offering a few optional accessories to ship with the bike such as a shock absorbing seat post like the Suntour NCX, a rear carrier rack, etc. These would make upgrades easier for consumers buying a bike for the first time. If not offered through the Ride1Up store then maybe a knowledge-base of known-compatible items could be added to the support site. Yes the users can figure these things out eventually but we should try to reduce all the wasteful trial and error Amazon shipping that’s currently required for things like the rear rack. 4. Ship the bike with pre-slimed inner tubes. Most e-bikes are running around without repair kits so at least delay the day of misery when that rear flat happens miles from home or a bike shop. This is a relatively low cost risk reduction approach. All-in-all it’s a nicely designed and built bike and I’ve been impressed with Ride1Up so far. 👍🏼👍🏼 I normally ride conventional bikes and this is my first electric bike. I’m still a little uncomfortable with the idea of ebikes (for me) so I named it Heresy and made some custom shoulder graphics for it. The basic gray frame is just begging for custom art work and I’d be interested to see what people do with it.

Great bike for a great price. I use it to commute to and from the office. I love how minimalist and stealthy it is. Wish it had mounts for a pannier though. I am ~200lbs, and it's a teeny bit difficult to get going from a stop on an uphill slope with the fixed-gear belt drive, but once the motor kicks in it's smooth sailing. This bike would be basically perfect if it had a torque sensor rather than a cadence sensor. That's probably gonna be my first upgrade. I have to give props to the customer service too, Brian from Arizona went out of his way to make me a happy customer, thanks Brian!

Amazing ebike! Been riding to & from work, about 2 miles each way, mostly flat. Assembly was easy, but the brakes & monitor came backwards on the handlebars. Simple fix at the local bike shop. This is one of those bikes that’s so fun to ride you find yourself taking the long route home lol. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase, highly recommend!

Had the roadster gravel edition v2 just over a week and have already put over 100 miles on it. This bike is just dang fun to ride. I got it mostly for cruising around town, grabbing groceries and commuting to work. I have about a 3 mile mostly flat commute and this bike makes it there as fast or faster than my car can. The belt drive is sweet and feels super solid. Definitely has some limitations when it comes to the battery range and the single speed-but for a townie bike it's simply awesome. I did get one flat so far, but having a nail go through my tire is hardly Ride1ups fault. Thanks for a great and reasonably priced e-bike!

I love the bike and assembly was super easy. It is fun to ride and I love the belt drive. It is silent! The bike is super light and looks great. I just upgraded to drop bars and it looks super cool! Having a drop bar option on this bike as an upgrade would be a nice option for those who want it from the factory. I would like to share that the front wheel was out of round when i received the bike. No big deal as this was an easy adjustment. It would be nice if these details were attended to before shipping the bike to a customer. Otherwise, I couldn't be happier with my purchase and have recommended your bike to all my friends.

I love this bike, it's sleek and beautiful. I've been averaging 30 miles with a mix PAS of 0 to 1 on paved/gravel trails. I still get a workout on flat terrain and have enough power for hills when you need it. Definitely recommend Ride1Up!

Love the bike, would like a little more power on uphill's but otherwise a great ride. I have used it to shuttle from take out back to put in on my drift boat trips. Will add some accessories to aid in this - rear rack, extra battery, airtag, etc. See photo of bike in the boat for the downstream adventure. Thanks for a great product.

The style, color, and price for the bike was perfect for me. I ride nearby rails to trails with ease now. At first, I was concerned about the cadence sensor, but it works fine since I normally ride with PAS 1 or 2. I am happy.

So giving the roadster 4 stars only for the fact that I think the battery range is a little misleading. The bike is great I have ridden over 1000 miles on the dang thing in the last 4 months. The ride; is honestly great this feels like a sporty single speed I am 6'4" and put a riser on the bars and it is comfy, and fun to ride! It isn't the typical 60 lb e-bike you see I can easily pick it up and put it in my house. Only weighs about 30lb The components; overall impressed. For commuting I will eventually put some different tires on but 1000 miles in and still using the WTBs. Would like something a little less gummy. Impressed with the brakes. You need a few extra tools to swap the back tire but I can still do it in 25min. I have a 11.5 mile commute one way to work with about 500 feet elevation gain on my ride. I basically stay in pedal assist 3 and end up with about 1 bar left (out of 5). It usually ticks over to 1 bar in the last half mile. The range: I think if you rode it flat in pedal assist 1 you could get the 25 miles but I suspect most people would live in pedal assist 2/3 which keeps you between 16-18 mph. I think a more reasonable range to expect is 15-20 miles unless you live somewhere very flat. Still totally fine just something to keep in mind. Overall: this bike rips, freaking beast of a commuter and I love it honestly it is a machine and the belt drive is awesome.

Wow! This bike has completely changed the way I interact in our community from biking to stores, friends' houses, sporting events, paddle tennis courts roughly 2 miles away (yes, I am in my 40s and look old but still feel mentally 14) and I love the fact that no one knows it is electric:). Smooth and easy process to set-up. I love the gravel addition with softer bigger tires and much better brakes. I do not think the throttle is needed and I use the 1-5 pedal assist as my "gears" and I would love to see a light added integrated with the battery. I did buy a $50 400 lumens REI light that works great but I have to charge it every other use. Because we have awesome bike paths in So Burlington Vermont we often commute with our kids to friends houses and very often it is night riding, a little backlight on the screen would be a nice small change as my kids always ask me how fast we are going. The bike is well built and very simple so I hope that leads to a long life. I love doing research when it comes to buying large items and I spent 6 months reviewing, watching videos, and testing much more expensive bikes. The value of this bike with the components made me give it a shot and I have zero regrets purchasing the gravel addition without testing it first.

A great bike for the one who is looking to have the sense of pedaling and at the same time have some help from an electric assisted motor. After a few additions the bike turn a perfect solution for my daily 10 miles commute in NYC.

I purchased 2 bikes, 1 for my wife and 1 for myself. I've been riding my bike for a little over 1 month and about 450km (~300miles). I have been commuting daily with the bike, pulling 2 kids in a chariot, and also having a kid in a bike carrier seat. This bike has allowed me to bike faster, further, and more often. I've been typically riding around 33km/h on level 1 assist. For me this is very comfortable and I can achieve around 50-60km on a battery. When its very windy commuting I will ride on 2 or 3 occasionally. I don't find levels 4 or 5 useful to me very much. I think I would prefer to have a less powerful option than level 1 instead of level 5. I would also like the option to use my throttle when I'm on 0 for when I'm pedaling without power and would like to throttle up a hill. Overall we have been happy with the quality of the bikes. My wife's bike had a problem with the throttle sticking and Ride1Up sent a replacement within an hour of me emailing them so the support is obviously great. We have found the gearing to be comfortable for us as well, although I live in an extremely flat city with the only hills being overpasses. If you are looking for an e-bike to do most of the work this probably isn't the one, but if you are looking for something that is able to extend your abilities I can't recommend this bike enough.

My 500 mile review. I very much recommend the Gravel Roadster. If you want an affordable, robust, easy to use and maintain, comfortable and reliable, light weight, stealthy electric, ability to ride with or without pedal assist, 12-18 MPH bike, then this is a perfect bike for you. Anything 19+ MPH may get spinny on the RPMs with the lower geared single belt drive. The non Gravel Road version should only be purchased if you will be on good road surfaces only and those extra couple MPH you can ride with the higher gearing are desired. For everyone else, if the $150 extra is possible, the gravel is the better all around option for safer, softer, everyday use. With the gravel, I can cut some tight sidewalk corners into the grass with no fear in the tires. # 1 point for potential buyers. I'm glad I made the decision to buy the small frame (30" stand over height), even though I had to swap to a longer stem for more reach. The Large frame is recommended for 5'8"-6'3" riders, but it has a stand over height of 33". I'm 5'10, but my 31" inseam makes the 30"' stand over much more comfortable than if I had the 33". Every person will have different body measurements, but make sure to evaluate this point for your best fit. ride1up should offer a medium option...keep the small frame, but a larger stem for more reach. I will not bore you with the details, but I went from super "Ironman" fit pre-Covid to unhealthy and work addicted during the last 3 years, ending up in a deep hole of unhappiness and regret. This bike is getting me back into fitness with a guaranteed assist home if I bite off more than I can chew. My ride last Sunday was 65 miles, with most of the 1st half unassisted, with the exception of the overpass crosswalks (photo), that do require hitting assist 2 or 3 to get up the incline with the single speed belt drive. After 35-40 miles in, I start to add in some time with pedal assist 1 for that bit of help, and that security of assist is a great ace in the hole if/when needed. I didn't lose my 3rd bar on the battery until a few miles from my finish. Still 40% of battery in reserve. I will soon be back to fitness, and will no longer be the bike used for any longer rides. However, it will either remain in the stable as a great short distance commuter, or better yet a re-home to someone who may need it as their primary or "back to fitness" bike.

I ordered the Gravel edition and received it in a few days. Was packaged well and easy to assemble. I went on my first ride and had it on one most of the time which was plenty of assist. The battery lasted for just over 30 miles. 28 mph is my top speed so far. I've put on about 80 miles and I'm very satisfied and plan on ordering another one for my wife. Takes between 4-6 hours for a full charge. Best part is that it's stealthy no one can tell it's an ebike.

I'm really pleased with my Gravel Roadster v2 non-throttle. It was a great basis for a commuter bike, and I immediately did some upgrades: Surly Corner Bar 46cm, compressionless brake housings/lines, Avid BB7 calipers, Evo Classic rear rack, Ortlieb pannier, Jandd frame bag, Salsa bar tape to match the tires, and a Dimension stem, 110mm, 125 Degree, 1-1/8x25.4mm, and a steer stopper. I'm 6'1" and bought the large frame. Out of the box the front wheel was way out of true, too much to get the brakes aligned, but Ride1Up covered the cost of truing at an LBS (but have pics/video available!). I put maybe 20 miles on it pre-upgrades and liked it okay but it's great with my own twist added. Lack of throttle is not an issue for me and I was happy to have the option to save $100 and skip it.

I put maybe 20 miles on it pre-upgrades and liked it okay but it's great with my own twist added. Lack of throttle is not an issue for me and I was happy to have the option to save $100 and skip it.

    High quality, easy to assemble, smooth to ride and fast in pedal assist. Over 100 miles in 3 weeks and never touched the throttle


    How does the bike* fit? Please share your height/size and the frame type you ordered, if applicable. : Small frame with comfort seat option. I'm 5'3"and did well with seat at lowest position

    This is my first Ebike and I’ve put over 300 miles on it in my first month of ownership. The first week of riding the battery would only last 20 miles, but as my legs gained strength the battery will last me 35 miles on a single charge.

    Delivery took exactly 7 days from ordering to arrive in Salem MA. The order processing was quick and you will need to sign your package with FedEx.

    I’d recommend this for someone who wants to go out biking, but doesn’t have the leg strength to tackle big hills. Having the power assist gives you a sense of confidence that you don’t have with acoustic bikes. This bike is a car replacement for me and the simple design keeps maintenance to the minimum.

    While the bike is light for an Ebike, it’s heavy compared to a non electric road bike. Without the pedal assist you feel the extra weight of the batteries and resistance with the belt drive. To access the internal batteries on the bike frame the screw has a torx bit. For people without tools, having a torx bit screw driver included would be a nice addition to the Alan keys that come with the order. The internal battery compartment is perfect for storing an AirTag, and having an unusual screwbit will make this harder for a thief to disable.

    Overall I’m very happy with the purchase. It’s been incredibly reliable, fun to ride and a great design.

    I bought this based on the positive reviews. Ordered on Thursday, in my garage the following Monday. Salt Lake City to Omha. I really did know what to expect with a single speed bike. I have been ridding a Cannondale straight bar road bike with 18 gear combinations. and it weighs probably less than 2/3 of the ebike. The RIDE1UP bike feels much lighter riding it. The only time I notice the additional weight is at road crossings with traffic lights, it’s a little more to handle. It has exceeded all expectations and is a blast to ride. I’m 71, and have been riding since I was 18. This bike backdates my riding abilities many many years. Only thing I did not like were the handle bar grips, and that is easy to change

    Sizing/Fit Notes:

    large - only had to slide the seat back a little to make it right

    Roadster V2 Gravel is my first e-bike and as of yesterday I have put over 1,000 miles, so I figured I’d offer my opinions When I purchased the bike I wanted an affordable, lightweight, and stealthy e-bike to daily commute/errands and extended rides on the weekends without being a target for bike thieves. Besides my bike coming out of the box with a warped front brake rotor and many hours of tinkering to get them working as intended, in all the stock bike met my needs and most changes would impact weight, efficiency, and price. Smaller gripes are that pedals are somewhat stiff out of the box (they’ll wear in) and removing the rear wheel also requires cutting the rear zip tie for the motor wire (I replaced it with a rubber band). Still, overall, the Gravel Roadster is still hard to beet in this category and price point.

    Sizing/Fit Notes:

    Small frame. Yes, although at 5'9" I eventually switched to a 70mm x 17.5deg stem.
