Ride1upExcellentRide1up4.6 Based on 1009 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onMel VelasquezMel Velasquez ★★★★★ Bought this bike to commute to work. Very easy set-up. The front wheel was slightly not trued. Had to adjust the disc brakes for the wobble. Other than that, no problems. They had a military discount for veterans. My route to work has a few long hills and the #3 setting is perfect to get me up that hill. Shipping was quick. Very happy with my bike.Gregory GailenGregory Gailen ★★★★★ I have bought 2 bikes from R1up so far. My second one was delivered today. Their products arrive at the kind of innovative cost/quality ratio that neatly fills an otherwise neglected niche in the ebike industry. Although R1up seems to be out front in terms of offering value per dollar for their bikes they don't appear to be making big compromises in customer support. I have had every inquiry patiently answered, and there are lots of good videos and illustrated articles to help after the sale. I also much appreciate the effort R1up makes to offer a line or two of more interesting and unusual ebikes for performance oriented riders. Their exciting CF Racer, and the recently discontinued Roadster and Gravel V2 are standouts at their price point in an industry filled with dowdy, standardized, yet often expensive bikes.Ed MedinaEd Medina ★★★☆☆ Overall the physical store and its associates were cool. I test rode a cafe cruiser and knew that was my next ebike I wanted. I ended up purchasing one online from their website. Those two entities are different. I spent over $1200 on the crusier and a passenger kit. I had my gf sign for the ebike. Mind you when you purchase an ebike they have a deal with some second rate company that delivers the ebike from Utah in my case. If you somehow don’t have someone on hand on a scheduled delivery date and miss the delivery there is a $150charge on the next delivery attempt. So you need to make sure someone is on hand to sign for the package. On the date of delivery they came an hour late past the window claiming traffic. In my case my gf signed for the ebike and passenger kit which we both assumed would come inside the box for the ebike. When I had the ebike assembled the passenger kit was no where to be found. I emailed Ride1up’s customer care team and they basically told me since it was signed for the delivery company washed its hands of what was delivered. Mind you I know that passenger kit is still sitting on one of this company’s trucks and they probably tossed it out. Ride1up did state they’d send me another one but I did not like the fact this is taking so long to get this passenger kit. It also seemed like Ride1up’s associate was doing me some favor…why are you delivering TWO different packages when you can throw the kit in with the ebike in ONE box? Makes zero sense. Or some way for the delivery company to charge more. The ebike also came delivered with a minor scuff on the frame before I even rode it. I’m willing to live with that scuff but the negative of this experience outweigh the positive. Not sure I’d purchase another ebike from the website. If it’s possible I’d purchase one in the physical store where the ebike is already assembled and haul it home. Long wait…too many mistakes by their website sales team. I do love the cruiser though.Daniel KangDaniel Kang ★★★★★ Nice bike and good customer service.Aaron GavinoAaron Gavino ★★★★★ Been riding the Roadster V2 now for over 6k miles the last year and half. Upgraded some parts but is overall a solid bicycle. Their customer service is superb as well. Had an issue with a broken battery bracket for my extra battery attachment and they quickly resolved the problem. Can’t wait to see the innovative e-bikes they’ll come up with next!Brian Van MasonBrian Van Mason ★★★★★ 1000 mile update!!!Just passed 1,000 miles on my ride1up limited e-bike.This is one of the best investments I've ever made. The bike is still in great condition there are only a few issues. I did have to epoxy a rear spoke, most likely broken in my crash 2 summers ago. The motor seems a "little" louder than when new and I've had the rear derailer adjusted twice, most recently a few weeks ago. I also "blew" out the rear tire by running over a metal screw 2 years ago. I've since added thick tire liners, and a new tire to the front wheel. I also added a front fender this year.I still feel this is the best value for any budget and would highly recommend this brand to anyone looking to get into this sport.Regarding the pix I do not normally dress like this when I go for a "real" ride, but the high temp yesterday was 111 so I took a quick spin to my local library.Ride safe.Response from the ownerSo glad you are loving the bike! Flats are the worst, fortunately there are many options to combat them! Trent ClarkTrent Clark ★★★★★ Customer support is next level.Really appreciate the responsiveness and accommodation.Penisamino StriplinPenisamino Striplin ★★★★★ Here's the updated review:"The Ride1Up Rift E-Bike is incredibly powerful and easy to install. Customer service was fantastic, helping me arrange a pickup from logistics instead of waiting for delivery. This bike is extremely strong and performs excellently on all surfaces, tackling uphill rides like a beast. I upgraded to higher handlebars, a more comfortable seat, and installed a seat post suspension shock absorber, making the ride extremely comfortable and handling all bumps with no issues at all."Ryan BordoRyan Bordo ★★★★★ This review is simply for customer service since I haven't built the bike yet. I was spending some time doing research on ebikes but still wasn't certain. I had some indecision after ordering the LMTD v2 and called up. Chad really helped me feel comfortable about my decision and offered a reduced restocking cost or credit to my order. You can't ask for better service and I can't wait to ride the LMTD v2.js_loader

home-top-products-svg Electric Bike FAQ's

How Long Do EBike Batteries Last?

EBikes come with a range of battery sizes, accessories, and warranty periods, and the life span of the battery will vary with how often you ride, your charging habits, and the maintenance you invest in your new bike.

Typically, ebike batteries will last up to about five years if you store your bike in dry conditions, keep the charging ports clean, and avoid discharging the bike completely. Consistently allowing your bike battery to fully discharge will increase the risk of cell degradation and needing to replace the battery for your eBike much sooner!

How Far Can an Electric Bike Go?

The distance an electric bike covers depend on several factors. The main element is the size of the bike battery. After battery capacity, external factors impact the range of an electric bike. Some of these factors include rider weight, terrain, temperature, use of accessories, type and pressure of tires, use of gearing, inclines, and the level of motor assistance/throttle used during your bike ride,

The range of our top-quality electric bicycles will vary from model to model. Electric bicycles with larger batteries such as the Cafe Cruiser can provide up to fifty miles of range, giving you plenty of capacity for a two-way commute or a weekend bike ride!

Do You Need a License for an Electric Bike?

An electric bike doesn’t usually need a license to ride, and no specific federal laws cover licensing requirements for eBikes. However, state regulations vary, so the best advice is to check out your local DMV site and double-check the licensing requirements in your region before you shop for an electric bike.

Most eBikes do not require insurance, tax, licensing, or registration, but more powerful eBikes might have varying requirements. It’s also worth considering where you plan to ride eBikes because local regulations for a bike driven on the streets can differ.

How Fast Can an EBike Go?

The speed of an eBike depends a lot on the size of the motor on the eBike you decide to purchase. The components built into an eBike monitor speed and stop providing electric assistance when you reach a speed threshold, helping you ride your eBike safely without compromising efficiency. Most ebikes go up to 20 mph and 28 mph on motor assistance.

The majority of Ride1Up’s Class 3 electric bikes are rated to go 28 mph on pedal assist.

Are EBikes Good for Losing Weight?

Yes! The motor on an ebike may make bicycling easier but at the end of the day, you are still staying active and moving your body during your bike ride. Studies show that riding eBikes can support a healthier lifestyle, improving cardio conditioning and brain function. While you have a handy motor to help you out of sticky spots (or steep hills), pedaling an electric bicycle burns around 444 calories an hour–that’s only 20% lower than a conventional bike!

Do Electric Bikes Have Gears?

Yes, eBikes in today’s market offer a variety of multi and single-geared drivetrains. Most common eBike drivetrains come with seven, eight, or nine gears but can go higher on more expensive models.

The accessories and gears on our eBikes vary from model to model to provide riders with options to find the most suitable and comfortable eBikes for their needs. Be sure to compare electric bike models to find the best option for your needs.

Can You Ride Electric Bikes in the Rain?

All our electric bikes are engineered with exceptional quality components, offer unbeatable accessories, and warranty options, and are IP-65-rated water-resistant. This rating means the electric bike is protected from low-pressure water from any direction.

While we do not recommend leaving the e-bikes out in the rain or riding in hazardous conditions due to personal safety, our eBikes can be ridden in the rain and handle water exposure. Just as with any electrical device, keeping the bike dry and protected from the elements will increase the lifespan of the bike.

What Is the Best Electric Bike Out Right Now?

Choosing a high-quality bike can make your daily travel quicker, cheaper, and healthier–but picking the right electric bike is very much a personal choice, depending on a whole host of factors.

For example, you’ll need to consider your budget, the frame style, size, and color you want, and whether you’re after an urban bike, a casual electric bike for occasional trips, or a more powerful bike to tackle tough hills.

Our Turris model is an exceptional value e-bike for first-time riders, and the 700 Series is a top-of-the-range model loaded with features for advanced performance. However, we’d recommend considering what you want to prioritize rather than suggesting that one specific model is the best option for every electric bike rider.

Which Cheap Electric Bike Is Best?

All Ride1Up e-bikes offer seriously competitive value, and we’d be reluctant to suggest that the cheapest electric bikes have the level of functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal we believe are important to your bike riding experience. Very cheap e-bikes have reduced power, performance, and longevity and don’t make the cut when it comes to balancing value against quality.

Our advice is to invest in an electric bike designed to withstand the rigors of the road, with each model developed with precision detail to provide the highest possible performance without costing a fortune. When you shop for bikes, you will want to consider price, accessories, warranty policies, customer support, and service options. Test riding various bikes can also be a valuable step to compare different bike options and find the one that best fits your needs.

Is There a Speed Limit on an Electric Bike?

Ride1Up specializes in Class 3 electric bikes–these bikes can reach speeds of up to around twenty-eight MPH and comply with the U.S. federal classification system. Top speeds vary with bike rider weights, terrain, and whether you’re using throttle only or pedal assist. You can find more information about maximum assisted speeds in our product specs and accessories, including advice about adjusting the settings in your bike display in our support platform.

It remains essential to observe local speed limits because not every state has adopted the same classification system. There may be different speed limits for cycle lanes and travel routes that permit electric bikes.

What Are the Three Types of E-Bikes?

Electric bikes are classified as Class 1, 2, or 3 based on the operation of the motor. As a quick summary of the bike classifications:

Class 1 e-bikes have an upper-speed limit of twenty MPH, with a pedal assist-only electric motor.
Class 2 models incorporate throttles, where the motor stops assisting the rider when the bike reaches twenty MPH.
Class 3 electric bikes have a motor, pedal assist, and a maximum speed of approximately twenty-eight MPH.

However, Ride1Up has incorporated a 20 PMH throttle into most of their class 3 bikes too.

How Far Can You Ride an E-Bike Without Pedaling?

Like all things e-bikes, the range is impacted by variables such as whether you’re riding uphill or downhill, the bike motor and battery size, tire spec and condition, and even the strength of the wind!

It’s also worth noting that a bike is designed for pedaling rather than operating like a moped or electric motorbike, which runs solely on the motor. You wouldn’t expect to sit stationary on the bike without pedaling at all, but you can cruise downhill without much pedal power.

You’ll find ranges for each model on our electric bike product page, from twenty to thirty miles on the Roadster V2 to thirty to fifty miles on the LMT’D V2, Prodigy, 700 Series, and Cafe Cruiser.
