    I was worried about the quality of the bicycle since this is my first ebike. After a lot of research I’ve decided to purchase the Ride1Up Roadster V2. My bicycle arrived on the 3rd business day after I placed my order. Everything seemed intuitive from assembly to the electrical display. After my first ride I instantly realized how quiet the bicycle is in motion and everything feels quality built. The bicycle had .2 miles logged on the screen out of the box. So far I’ve traveled 2.6 miles and hit a top speed on 18mph. Some questions I have are:

    1. Is this bicycle compatible with a gates carbon belt drive? (I imagine the belt that came with the bicycle will eventually need replacement.)

    2. How do I replace the back wheel/motor when the motor no longer works? (I did not see a rear replacement wheel for sale on the Ride1Up page.)

    Since the bike had arrived the weather has not given me too much opportunity to ride but so far I am generally happy with it. The bike is what I expected when ordering, no-frills. It is quiet, smooth to pedal and on mostly flat terrain I find it a good ride. You do feel every bump in the road but this is expected. The down side I find is that my area is not flat and the bike being an one-speed find myself having to compensate for the lack of gears with changing the level of battery input. The battery does not start to apply power until about one full crank of the pedals so starting off up hill, like my driveway, is a bit of a challenge. It was mostly assembled when removed from the box and having tinkered with bikes in the past I found assembly straight forward. Tools come with it but the wrench to tighten the pedals did not fit and I had to resort to my toolbox. The only wish would be a throttle for those hills. So far I give it a four and half stars.

    The Roadster is a beautiful, very well made bike. It comes very well packaged and is easy to put together. In fact, putting it together takes about the same amount of time as unpacking it. Unfortunately, no instructions for assembling the bike or using the computer were included. There was only a page about recharging the battery. A call to Ride1UP for help was unanswered, at least in the six or so days since I made it. The owner’s manual and a very poorly written manual for the computer can be found on the website, but only after some digging. Solution Home/General/Assembly/RoadsterV2 Assembly/Owner’s Manual and Display Manual. Fortunately, assembly only requires a basic understanding of how bicycles work and can be done without instructions. Operating the computer is far less obvious though.

    Best belt drive ebike for the price/weight. If you think you’ll need gears, then you need it – except when it’s an ebike. I have no problem in SoCal terrain – the battery does last for 35+ miles on mostly flat road with some inclines.

    I use an adjustable stem to match my riding preference- more upright position. And carried over to the seat/handlebar.

    Note that the charging led indicator turn red when it’s charging and go back to green when it’s full. Mine had a loose wire within the frame that had to be reconnected for it to charge. Alex at support was very responsive in order the troubleshoot.

    Overall, great bike for the value. The next closest comparable bike I could find for the price is almost twice in cost.

    Extremely satisfied so far. This is my first e-bike. I researched a lot. There are not that many ‘stealth’ options out there so Roadster V2 is a great option for the price. The belt drive makes it extremely quiet and just 32lbs means you can even peddle with motor off. But why would you do that when it is soo much fun! I found keeping it in Level 2 PAS provides a very relaxed cadence where you are still doing some work. PAS 3 and you’re just spinning the pedals and not doing much work. Reaching 20 miles is very easy – anything beyond you have to work a lot.

    Thinking of getting a Core 5 for my wife so we can have best of both worlds in the house. Core 5 has a bit more power and gears. While I like the simplicity of the Roadster, there might be occasions where you want gears, throttle, or a more upright cruiser feel.

    Great company and well built bikes at an affordable price.

    This is a sleek, zippy, lightweight e-bike. It’s a no-frills experience but overall fun to ride. Upgrades and customization were/are necessary for me though.

    For context: To purchase my Roadster V2, I sold my less expensive e-bike by another maker. This bike was foldable, more powerful, faster, had a throttle, and came standard with a features that are non-existent here (front/rear lights, kick stand, fat tires, front/rear fenders, and a rear rack). But this bike also weighed literally twice as much as the V2, and my new commute demands a lightweight e-bike. I consider the price of the V2 fully justified by it’s speed, weight, and the ratio thereof!

    Cons:
    – the seat in it’s lowest position is above the handlebars, therefore the ride position is too aggressive for me (to the point of discomfort). Riser bars and/or a stem riser are in order, though the existing cable length doesn’t look like it can accommodate both. Swept back bars will be enough for some people who feel similarly about the ride position.
    – the narrow tires, hard seat, and lack of suspension make hitting any bump pretty unforgiving, even by road bike standards. I will be opting for better tires when these wear out, and a new seat and/or suspension seat post is next on my list of upgrades
    – the display is invisible while wearing polarized sunglasses – the navigation buttons are both relatively flat and located below the display. This makes switching PAS levels during riding a chore
    – the handlebar width and pedal spacing are a bit narrow
    – the factory grips hurt my hands and tear my skin
    – braking distance is less than ideal and the bike struggles to come to a full stop overall

    Pros:
    – this is a sexy bike. I reluctantly got silver because it was available immediately in the large frame size, but now I’m glad I did. The black is classic and unassuming while the red is bold and eye-catching.. I enjoy that the silver is somehow both of these!
    – did I mention that the bike is ever so lightweight? I can lift it with one hand when needed. More importantly, I can ride on flat roads with no pedal assist, even without momentum! This was my utmost goal and this bike achieves it in spades.
    – PAS levels feel distinct
    – steeper hills take effort but are doable
    – even for this heavy rider with a moderately hilly commute, the battery life is pretty much as advertised

    …and speaking of as advertised: almost all of what I describe as cons are subjective, and can almost entirely be discerned from the pics, specs, and summary of the bike on the website. I didn’t think about the frame geometry until after I ordered the bike, but that’s on me since it’s incredibly obvious from the very first picture and the specs! Other than that, the only surprise here was that this bike is super fun! I was skeptical, but it turns out that in spite of the flaws and the downsides, this is a bike in which I am glad to invest.

    Absolutely love the Roadster. It is so much fun to ride and has more than enough power. It is very sturdy and handles great. I mainly use PAS2 for most of my riding.

    I received the bike last Sunday, assembled it as well as replaced the handlebars, and got some contrasting tape for the new bullhorns for a different look and style.

    What a kick-ass ride, pleased with the bike, the motor assistance is great – not too limp, with just the right balance for exercise and pace. After today’s ride of ~20 miles (level 1 assist first half, and level 5 all the way back) the battery went down 1 out of the 5 bars – I have absolutely no doubt it will do the advertised range without any problems.

    Shipping was insanely fast as it arrived a day after ordering. It is a crazy good looking bike that doesn’t scream “eBike”. It comes mostly assembled so just have to put on handlebars, front wheel, and pedals. Took about 20 min. The hub motor is very nicely integrated as an assist rather than it being a motorized bike with a throttle. There’s mostly hills in my area and I can get a good workout with this bike by just adjusting the power assist level. I often need to go up to full assist in the steepest hills but in flat ground I mainly use the lowest setting or turn it off and just bike normally. I’ve biked every day since I’ve got it and in most of my rides I just about run the battery all the way out which is about 16 miles with about 95% all hills. I did one ride where it was mainly flat ground and after 20 miles, it only used about 25%.

    I had an issue with the controller not toggling correctly and the support team instructed me how to clear the blockage. They responded extremely quick and the issue was resolved.

    I’m 48 years old and this bike is so much fun to ride.

    I was skeptical. But its was love at first ride. The pas was so smooth it felt as if was me with super powers. the first time I rode about 20 miles with the wind on my face. No problem.
    That being said the bike was supposed to come with a set of tools to ease the assembly: no tools and to make it worst the front wheel was not aligned. The spokes have to be adjusted. That means extra money.
    I wish it came with fenders because I want to ride thru the winter here in New England with snow and ice and salt on the road. So I may have to purchase a set of fenders to keep the dirt of my back.

    Just received the bike and I can already tell it’s going to be a blast to own! For anyone curious, I’m 5’7″ and the size small fits me great. After owning a much heavier “off road” E bike, I love the simplicity of this bike- relatively lightweight, single speed belt drive (still climbs hills with ease), and the stealth matte black finish. Overall a job well done! Check out my full unboxing and reviews on YouTube! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSMp0b8MZYk

    We are loving our new Ride1up roadster v2s. It was very simple to install and we were on the rode within 30 minutes (I did have to use a different wrench than provided to install the pedals). This bike is pretty awesome for those who want to feel like they’re actually biking (and you will be). You can get a good workout or just cruise. So this thing is geared extremely high because it’s a single speed, so it can be tough to get started with no motor input. This makes it a bit difficult to get going if you’re starting up hill. However, the assist kicks in after about 3/4 of a rotation and you can get up to speed fairly quick after that. I’ve found that this latency actually makes it possible to track-stand, so that’s kinda cool. I haven’t done a full battery test, but it seems like 25 miles with absolutely minimal effort put in. I’ve used less than half the battery riding 35 miles of flat ground while using pedal assist 2 and significant input from my legs.

    Overall this thing is extremely fun for some city cruising and is pretty sick even without the electric elements. If you’re someone who’s looking to put in absolutely minimal effort I might try something else, but otherwise this thing is the bomb. It’s exactly what I wanted as someone who has commuted single-speed before and wanted to spare some sweating and leg exhaustion.

    Excellent bike and it rides like a dream. It’s my first ever belt drive bike and I love it. I changed out the original tires for 700 x 28 Black Gatorskins. I changed out the flat handlebars for bullhorn handlebars. My first ride was 40 miles and no issues. The only bad thing is that the bike did not come with any kind of instruction / owners manual whatsoever and there are no web resources if you have specific questions about it. I’m loving the bike however. 5 STARS!!!

    Great bike. Whisper quiet. Very comfortable around the city and can take hills without issue so long as you help and have some momentum. Easily hauls my 200 pound self 20+ miles per charge with assist cranked up and plenty of hills. Bike is in it’s element going 15-20 mph. Took Gatorskin Hardshell 32mm’s without issue. Very satisfied with my Roadster V2.

    Absolutely stunning! This is my first ebike and I’m incredibly impressed. All my friends have been blown away how seamless the riding experience is. Ride1up has been quick to reply to my emails for assistance. Also the wiring doesn’t go through the handlebars so you can change them.

    Minimal, quiet, and beautiful – this bike will not disappoint! I live at the beach, and always have a massive grin on my face as I pass golf carts with ease.

    The battery is light enough that you can ride very easily without the assist on. So in my opinion, range won’t ever be an issue. Oh, and the charger is small enough that you can fit it into a fanny pack to carry it along for the journey!

    It just arrived this evening; put it together in about 30 minutes. Easiest build ever. “Stealth V2”.

    It’s a pretty bike; and much lighter than my other fatty 20″x4″ e-bike.

    And, the response to my questions were incredibly fast!

    Thanks guys!

    I was actually looking for more of an upright, comfortable city bike so I immediately changed the straight bars to swept riser bars and now it’s perfect! I’ve actually found that I can go further than the stated 15-30 miles because the bike is so light and efficient that I don’t even use the battery on flats or downhills. It’s a great bike and an even better value!
