    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.

    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.
