Ride1Up 700 Series Electric Bike Review: All You Need to Know (2023). 1up electric bike

Ride1Up vs Rad Power Bikes: What you Should Know

Ride1Up and Rad Power Bikes both have similar business strategies with their ebike offerings in that they strike a balance between price and quality. Both companies are among a select few ebike companies which offer the best value. Since I have experience owning electric bikes by both companies I wanted to share my thoughts on Ride1Up vs Rad Power Bikes.

As you’re looking at Ride1Up you probably have noticed that they offer electric bikes that have frames very similar to that of typical looking bikes. You won’t find a moped-style ebike, a fat tire ebike, a cargo bike, or even a folding ebike on their website. If you’re interested in one of these options then you should check out Rad Power Bikes and go with one of their options such as the RadRunner, RadWagon, RadMini, or even the RadRover.

However, if you’re indifferent or want a standard frame then Ride1Up offers some really compelling options at surprising prices. But first, it’s important to know the scale of each company. Rad Power Bikes raised an impressive 25 million funding round in early February 2020. Since then, they have scaled up significantly as ebike sales skyrocketed due to COVID-19. According to Rad Power Bikes founder and CEO Mike Radenbaugh, demand has increased 300% from mid-2019 to mid-2020. Due to this the company now has over 100 full-time customer service employees, which is pretty impressive.

And this scale is not a differentiator to be taken lightly. Rad Power Bikes is well known for its customer service and they have an arsenal of employees to serve their customers after purchase. This is not to say that Ride1Up doesn’t provide excellent customer service. After all, they are a much smaller company. Nonetheless, it is an important distinction for those looking at electric bikes.

Ride1Up Roadster vs RadMission vs Ride1Up Core-5

Ride1Up currently offers 5 electric bike models, ranging from 995 to 1,795. Rad Power Bikes are priced in a similar range from 999 to 1,699. First I’ll compare the Ride1Up Core-5, Ride1Up Roadster V2, and the Rad Power Bikes RadMission which all fall into similar price-points. I’ve highlighted some of the important specs in the table below.

The most important distinction is that the RadMission and Roadster V2 are single-speeds. The Core-5 is a 7-speed and only 100 more. Though the 1000 price tag is tempting, I often tell people that if you think you need gears, then you probably do. The Core-5 in my opinion is among the best value ebikes around and I haven’t found anything else at the price-point that compares. Plus you have the option for a full step-through frame on an ebike that looks less like an ebike compared to any of the Rad Power Bikes models.

However, if a single-speed is what you’re looking for, the Roadster V2 is an ultra-light ebike perfect for short trips. It is the ultimate stealthy ebike with the integrated battery (albeit small) in the downtube. Note that while the battery is removable, it is only meant to be removed for maintenance or replacement.

If you need more range or versatility with the many accessories offered by Rad Power Bikes, then the RadMission is a great option. In addition, the smaller battery of the RadMission is cross-compatible with all of the other ebikes in Rad’s lineup.

What’s great about all of the ebikes below is that they are all reasonable weights which will makes them accessible to more people.

RadCity vs Ride1Up 500 Series vs Ride1Up 700 Series

If you are looking for more creature comforts both Ride1Up and Rad Power Bikes have you covered. Each model in this list sports a step-through option which I am a huge fan of. In addition, the front suspension on these models will make your ride more comfortable. Want the ultimate in comfort? Then check out a suspension seatpost.

Besides the front suspension, the Ride1Up 500 Series has a larger battery capacity compared to the more affordable models I reviewed above. It still comes in at an impressive 1,195. The 700 Series and RadCity come in at 1,499, making it easy to compare them side by side.

If you’re looking for a Class 3 ebike or an ebike capable of achieving speeds above 20 mph then the Ride1Up models are the way to go. Note that you can also override the 20mph limit on the Rad Power Bikes models via the LCD screen at your own discretion. On our RadWagon, which has the same motor as the RadCity, we are able to achieve speeds around 23 or 24 mph.

The 500 Series, 700 Series as well as the RadCity all have 7 speed drivetrains. In my opinion, the 700 Series looks much better with the integrated battery and controller. Like all Rad Power Bikes, the battery and controller are exposed on the RadCity. Another benefit to the 700 Series is the hydraulic disc brakes. Not only do they feel better, but in my experience, they are easier to adjust. With hydraulic disc brakes, both pads move inward whereas mechanical disc brakes operate with one moving pad and one stationary pad.

Note that absent from this list is the Ride1Up LMT’D priced higher at 1,795. The main upgrades on the LMT’D are a more powerful motor, lighter weight, air suspension fork, and torque sensor. Check out my Ride1Up LMT’D Review for more or the specs from Ride1Up.

Which is Better? Rad Power Bikes or Ride1Up

It’s hard to have a definitive answer. I recommend Rad Power Bikes if you like the idea of a large organization to support you post-purchase. If you are willing to forego buying from the largest seller of ebikes in North American then Ride1Up offers incredible value and some great looking ebikes. Planning to make a purchase? Please consider using the links below which help support Ebike Escape.

Get involved with the ebike community: Both companies also have a dedicated community and I recommend checking out the Rad Owners Forum that I run as well as the Ride1Up group. You will find plenty of happy customers, who are willing to provide additional prospectives.

Ride1Up 700 Series Electric Bike Review: All You Need to Know (2023)

Ride1Up has shaken up the e-bike industry with its 700 Series Electric commuter bike. There’s a whole lot to love about this bike, and its value is one of them. But don’t just take our word for it – let’s take a deep dive into this class 3 e-bike and see what it has to offer.

Summary of the 700 Series Features

Class 3 e-bike Available in 2 colors: graphite grey or steel blue It weighs 62 pounds and is 70 inches long Maximum cargo and rider weight is 300 pounds 750w sustained geared rear hub motor with 60mn of torque Battery: 48V, 14Ah (672Wh) frame-integrated battery Display: Color LCD display Headlight: Buchel 50 lux front lights Taillights: Spanniga Luceo rear light Pedal Assist: Five PAS levels, cadence sensor Range: 30-50 miles Thumb throttle Tektro HD-E350 hydraulic disk brakes Fenders: Alloy fenders Fork: Mozo suspension fork Frame: Alloy Drivetrain: Shimano Acera 8-speed 1x eight drivetrain with Shimano trigger shifter Throttle – with no pedaling, up to 21 mph Saddle: Selle Royal Freeway Handlebar: Alloy riser bars Kickstand: Included Pedals: Wellgo Alloy Tires: Schwalbe Super Moto-X 27.5×2.4”

Class 3 E-Bike

Electric bikes are available in 3 classes. Not all e-bikes are legal to ride in all areas, so you’ll need to check your local laws, of course. However, here’s a quick breakdown of the different types. Class 1: The motor only works while you pedal and only up to 20mph. Class 2: The motor will work while you pedal or use the throttle without pedaling up to 20mph. Class 3: The motor works with pedal assist up to 28mph. Some class 3 bikes have a throttle that works up to 20mph.

The Ride1Up 700 series is a class 3 e-bike. The pedal assist will give you speeds up to 28mph, and the throttle will give you speeds up to 20pmh.If you compare the Ride1Up 700 series to other e-bikes, you’ll find there are a lot more class 1 bikes than class 3 bikes, especially at this price point.

You can see a speed test of the 700 series here.

This bike is available in two colors. You can choose either graphite grey or steel blue. Both colors are a slightly understated, matte color, which gives the bike a more serious look to it rather than looking like a blinged-out cruiser bike.

If I were going to show up on the job with a commuter bike, I definitely would want it to have a professional vibe, like this, rather than a vacay vibe, like a lot of e-bikes have.

Size and Weight

This is not a small bike, so you’ll want to keep that in mind if you are considering one of these bikes. First of all, it weighs a hefty 62 pounds and is about 70 inches long.

Definitely smaller than your average car, so you’ll have no trouble fitting it into a small garage. On the other hand, if you have to store your bike indoors or carry it up a flight or two of steps, it’s going to be quite a beast to haul around.

My biggest concern with the 1Up is rider size. As a smaller rider, this just wouldn’t be a practical bike for me at all. Here’s why.

The 1Up 700 Series is only available in one size. It’s built for riders between 5’5 and 6’4 with a total weight limit (including rider and cargo) of 300 pounds.

This bike is really only designed for people of average height and weight. If you’re on the short side or a little on the heavy side (or carry lots of cargo), it probably isn’t the bike for you. I think that 1Up is able to keep costs low, in part, due to the fact that they only have to make one size.

This is really the biggest drawback of this bike – it is intended for people who are entirely average. If 1Up could offer it in at least 2 or 3 sizes, it would be marketable to a lot more of the population. Brands such as Trek, Cannondale, and even Canyon offer their e-bikes in multiple sizes, so you can choose something that fits you better.

The Frame

The frame is made of alloy with a geometry intended for comfort, not speed. The nice part of the frame is that it protects the electronics inside and has a built-in lock for the battery.

Assembly

Another way that 1Up was able to save on the price of the bike was to pack it in more pieces. That’s right, assembly is going to be a bit more work than average, as you can see in this video. Don’t be afraid to call a bike shop and get help!

Battery

The 1Up comes standard with a 48V, 14Ah (672Wh) frame-integrated battery. The battery fits right into the frame of the bike, giving it a seamless look. In addition, you can lock the battery in with a key, which is a nice feature if you don’t want someone making off with it while you’re in the coffee shop!You can charge the battery right in the bike, or you can take it out easily to charge it as well.An e-bike battery should last anywhere from 2 to 5 years, depending on how hard you use it. Ride1Up sells replacement batteries for around 450 each. This doesn’t include the housing or the keys, just the battery.

If you need to commute extra far, you may want to purchase a second battery to carry with you on your bike. Remember, though, that the battery weighs about 10 pounds, so that’s extra weight to carry with you, too.

The only real drawback to this particular battery is its location. It’s located on the bottom side of the downtube, which is a somewhat awkward place to reach if you’re having to remove it often.

Range

The range is a big consideration when you’re choosing an e-bike. You don’t want to be caught without enough juice to get back home when you’re out on a ride. And while you can pedal an e-bike without the assist, you probably don’t want to, considering they are extra heavy when compared to a typical road or gravel bike.

So Ride1Up claims that average riders can get 30 to 50 miles out of one battery charge, depending on how much assistance they use. And this is actually pretty accurate, although you do have to account for variables.Rider weight, fitness level, weather, terrain, speed, hills, and level of pedal assist will all affect how quickly your battery will drain. But generally speaking, you really can count on your Ride1Up e-bike to give you a good 30 miles or more on any given charge.

The Trek Kakau Go! It is a similarly priced e-bike. It gives you a solid 40 miles on a single battery charge but also offers an additional range extender which gives you an additional 40 miles. Keep in mind, though. It only goes up to 20 mph with pedal assist and no throttle.

The Canyon Grail: On, on the other hand, will easily give you a whopping 70 miles on one charge. The big caveat there is the hefty price tag – at well over three times the price of the Ride1Up.

Tires

Some say that tires are the most critical component of your bike since the tires are what connect the rider to the ground. Regardless, the tires on the Ride1Up don’t disappoint. You get Schwalbe Super Moto-X 27.5×2.4” tires.

These are nice chunky boys that will give you a smooth ride. You can take them on the tarmac or a mild off-road trail. This bike isn’t set up for mountain biking, so don’t even think of trying to hit a rock garden in these bad boys, but you’ll get plenty of off-road grip on, say, light gravel.

What I really like about these tires is that they have solid puncture protection and reinforced sidewalls. As a result, they can handle heavy loads, high speeds, and rough roads, and they are easily replaceable should you get a flat.

Suspension

The bike includes a Mozo suspension fork. This, combined with the cushy tires, will give you a nice comfortable ride with plenty of grip. It will definitely take the vibrations out of the road, making the ride easier on your hands and body.

Display

The display unit is located on the left-hand side of the handlebars. There’s nothing overly fancy or difficult about it – it is just a simple display that tells you what you need to know while you are riding your bike.

You can see it in action, here.

Real World Application for the RIde1Up 700 Series E-Bike

The Ride1Up 700 Series is a great value bike if you fit the size and weight recommendations. The geared hub motor is surprisingly fast and adept. It pedals efficiently and handles remarkably well. The fact that it is a long bike, and a heavy one at that, gives you lots of stability and control. The suspension fork and cushy tires give you a nice comfortable ride, as well. And you get the rear rack, fenders, lights, and plenty of name-brand components such as a Shimano drivetrain, brakes, and of course, the Schwalbe tires.

The drawbacks here are that the bike is only offered in one size, which cuts out a lot of smaller and larger folks who might otherwise want a fast, value-priced e-bike for their commute.

If size and weight are your primary concern, then you’ll want to consider something like the Hummingbird Folding e-bike, which weighs just 22 pounds and folds in half for easy storage. If you have a little extra coin to drop, then you might want to test-drive the Cannondale SuperSix EVO Neo. It weighs under 25 pounds.

The only other major issue I could find with this bike is its lack of hill-climbing prowess.It really doesn’t have any amazing hill-climbing gears. So if you’re trying to get up the hill with the throttle only or with the power of your legs, you’ll have a hard time grinding away with such a heavy bike. But if you can combine the two: leg power plus battery power, you’ll be alright.

Honestly, on a scale of 1 to 10, I’m giving this bike a 9 because you’ll be hard put to find another e-bike with this much value. This bike provides you with brand-name components and a fast, comfortable ride for a fantastic price. Sadly, I won’t add this bike to my collection of bicycles, though. It’s just too big, and as of right now, there isn’t a viable size available for the likes of me. But if you’re perfectly average, you’ll love this above-average e-bike.

Ride1UP Electric Bikes Review: Affordable Quality-Made E-Bikes

Ride1UP is a newly formed American electric bike brand launched in September 2019. The brand prides itself on designing and building some of the best value e-bikes on the market.

The company has something for every kind of rider, with seven unique e-bikes to choose from in their range.

This article will cover what makes Ride1UP special, describe each bike, list the popular accessories and spare parts, and finish with information on support, ordering, and assembly.

Direct-to-consumer Business

They aim to offer quality electric bikes without the added costs normally associated with them. They act as a direct-to-consumer company to minimize costs and therefore have no physical presence in shops.

Additionally, they manufacture spare parts, so you can still purchase replacements for your Ride1UP bike if it’s out of warranty and needs maintenance.

Free Shipping

They offer free shipping within the United States and finance options for those who need it. As they don’t have a physical presence for you to try the bikes out before purchase, they FOCUS heavily on customer service as they are the only face of the company, so if you have any questions, you’ll be sure to have them answered by one of the team.

Ride1UP CORE-5

Price: 1,195

The CORE-5 is the second cheapest bike in Ride1UP’s range, at just 1,095.

They call it an entry-level e-bike, but it’s quite a capable bike, with a 500W motor and pedal-assisted max speeds of up to 28mph. The frame comes in two models, the ST, a step-thru frame, and the XT, which has a higher positioned top tube. In addition, it’s available in two colors; midnight gray and slate blue. The thick 2.2″ tires make this bike rather capable both on the road and on light trails, and with such an accessible price point, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better value choice for new e-bikers.

Ride1UP 500 Series

Price: 1,195

The 500 series is Ride1UP’s original best-selling model. Starting at 1,195, it’s low priced and great value for money.

There are two main options, one with fenders and a rack for panniers (for 100 more) and the standard version that comes without fenders. Given the low price, it’s no surprise that they use lower specced components like mechanical disc brakes, but they are sufficient for casual riding. With a 500W motor, the top speed on this bike taps out at 28mph. There are also two paint color choices: black or gold.

  • 6061 Alloy frame
  • 100mm XCT Coil Spring Fork
  • 27.5×2.2″
  • Range: 25-45mi
  • 500W (800W peak) motor
  • Class 3 E-Bike
    Max speed: 28mp/h pedal-assist & 20mp/h throttle

Frame Size Recommendations

XR – 5’5″ – 6’4″
ST (Step-Through) – 5’1″ – 6-2″

Ride1UP Cafe Cruiser

Price: 1,595

The Cafe Cruiser is a unique bike in the range as it is the only cruiser-style e-bike by Ride1UP.

It fits in between the 500 and 700 Series bikes at 1,595, but in our opinion, it offers the best value. Some standout components include the upgraded Zoom hydraulic brakes, a high-quality Bafang motor, and a wide 3″ Chaoyang tires.

These wide tires boost comfort and off-road ability, particularly with the 80mm fork suspension. When these components are combined with the plush oversized saddle and swept-back cruiser handlebars, you’ve got yourself one of the most comfortable e-bikes on the market.

Finally, riders can choose from an ST (step-thru) or XR frame option and three colors.

  • Alloy frame
  • 26×3″
  • Range: 30-50mi
  • 750W Bafang geared hub motor
    60Nm torque
  • 720Wh battery with Samsung cells
  • Class 3 Pedal Assist
    Max speed: 28mph, 20mph throttle

Frame Size Recommendations

XR – 5’5″ – 6’4″
ST (Step-Through) – 5′ – 6’4″

Ride1UP 700 Series

Price: 1,695

The Ride1UP 700 series is the next step up from their 500 series.

It costs slightly more at 1,695, but the value is plain to see. For example, components are upgraded, such as hydraulic brakes and a color display LCD screen that allows riders to adjust the programs on the bike and check battery levels, speed, etc.

Wide tires mean it’s capable for both on and lights off-road use while also promoting comfort. Like the 500 series, it comes as either an ST (step-thru) or XT frame option and is available in two colors: gunmetal gray and steel.

  • Alloy frame
  • 27.5×2.4″
  • Range: 30-50mi
  • 48V 500W (800W max) motor
    56Nm torque
  • Class 3 Pedal Assist
    Max speed: 28mp/h p/a, 20mp/h throttle

Frame Size Recommendations

XR – 5’5″ – 6’4″
ST (Step-Through) – 5′ – 6’2″

Ride1UP LMT’d

Ride1UP Roadster V2 Review: The Commuter E-Bike That Zips Under The Radar

It”s not often that a bicycle takes me by surprise as this commuter ebike has. Commuters, this Ride1Up Review is for you!

All opinions are our own and never influenced by brands. If you buy through links on this page, we may earn a small commission. Here’s our process.

The Roadster V2 is an e-bike from Ride1UP, that has been designed with the urban commuter in mind. For the most part, this electric bike looks like just like any other stylish non-electric commuter bike.

It’s only when you start to unleash the e-bike’s full pedal-assist speed, while effortlessly cycling uphill that onlookers (and other cyclists that you pass) may start to realize that this is no ordinary bike – this is a stealth commuter ebike.

In this Ride1UP Roadster V2 review, I’m going to share my experiences riding this ride1up electric bike, give an overview of its key features, what makes it stand out from the competition.

I’ll also share where you can buy it with some advice on sizing, and finally my review summary with pros and cons and a score out of 10.

Keep reading to the end of this post where I’ll answer some FAQs and leave you with some more photos of this beautiful commuter ebike to drool over.

Within the next couple of days, I will add be a hands-on video review demonstrating the ebike’s acceleration, top speed, and a walk-through of the features and how the handlebar digital dial works.

What’s it like riding the Ride1UP Roadster V2 eBike

My first experience with an eBike was with the Rad Power Bikes eBike, the RadRunner. That experience put a huge grin on my face; it was so much fun and a truly exhilarating experience.

That first eBike ride set me on a path to review other electric bikes to see how the experience could differ from frame to frame, motor to motor, and wheel to wheel.

Skip forward to today, where I have the pleasure of reviewing the Ride1UP Roadster V2, a totally new electric bike riding experience for me due to the style of the bike.

This is a commuter e-bike that better resembles a standard bicycle that isn’t motorized in any way.

In fact, I’d go as far as saying that the Roadster V2 is a bit of a stealth eBike because the battery and motor are so well hidden in the 6061 Aluminum Alloy Frame (the 36V battery and electric components are integrated into it).

The motor is also joyously quiet, and the digital handlebar dial is so compact that it’s nice and discreet.

There’s no throttle on this e-Bike, which means the only electric boost you get comes from peddle-assist, meaning you have to be pedaling to get the motor to kick in. You can also ride it without any assisted power.

The Roadster V2 has a great riding experience when cycling on flat roads with 0% gradient, and downhills, but can provide a challenge when an uphill gradient surpasses 10 percent or so.

This is because the bike only has a 64/20T Single Speed Toptrans Belt Drive – or in layman’s terms a single gear bike with 64 teeth in the belt drive, and 20 on the rear cog.

What is a single-speed bicycle, and what are their advantages/disadvantages?

Single-speed bikes are really good for certain situations (and riders), but they also have some disadvantages when compared to geared alternatives.

Having only a simple gear operating on a simple mechanism makes them generally cheaper than geared bikes.

They also use fewer components which means there are fewer parts to break and wear out. This means fewer repair costs over time.

Single-speed bikes are generally the better option if you like a challenge and are happy to have to pedal with more power (and with a lower cadence) when gradients show up.

They are also more lightweight than geared bikes which makes them easier to maneuver on plain roads, and also easier to transport when you need to carry the bike onto a bus, train, or up to your work office.

Electric bikes are generally much heavier than non-motorized bikes, so anywhere there is an opportunity to reduce their weight, this is a good thing.

The disadvantages of single-speed bikes are that they cannot be pedaled efficiently due to their single gearing range.

That makes it harder for cyclists to maneuver around tight corners or cycle uphill. They are also limited in top speed due to the single gear being a limiter of sorts.

This is not to be confused with a fixie bike or ‘fixed gear’ bike where the pedals spin regardless of whether or not you are pedaling.

This is often problematic for riders so I’m thankful that the Roadster V2 is not a fixie!

BUT WAIT – Ride1UP has got around those disadvantages by adding a geared hub motor to do all the hard work for you when you need it.

The Roadster V2 really does have the best of both worlds when it comes to a lightweight design, a fixed gear riding experience on the flats with or without the assisted power, and then the geared motor to help you maneuver around tight corners, or ride uphill.

My experience so far with this Ride1UP model has been great – the bike holds battery charge well, is very responsive, easy to use, lightweight, and a lot of fun to ride.

That last point being one of the most important, in my mind.

The 36V 7.0ah Samsung 35e Cells battery lasts for a very long time (read on for more details on battery life, mileage, and charge time), and for daily usage around town, I haven’t been left worrying that I need to charge the battery.

A lot of the time I find myself using the pedal assist setting of 2 or 3 (it goes up to 5), as I find it’s a good balance between me wanting to do some exercise (without getting sweaty), and getting more than enough speed that feels like I’m respecting other bike path users when I pass them, by not riding too fast.

I mention being courteous because the Roadster V2 is a Class 3 electric bike, with pedal assist up to 24 mph – which is pretty fast when riding on flat roads/bike paths.

To learn more about electric bike laws around the world, and to see what power/speed options are allowed in your country, read this helpful Wikipedia article.

Speaking of speed, how well does the Roadster come to a standing stop? Well, even though the ebike doesn’t have disk brakes (it uses Tektro R315 Dual Pivot rim brakes) – it stops remarkably well when I need it to.

This I’m sure is in part due to the lightweight nature of the bike.

What’s the riding position like?

The Ride1UP Roadster V2 has a great riding position that is especially comfortable when using it as a commuter bike with a full backpack on your back.

There are two different frame sizes available, and as a quick way to know which one is for you, go for the 58cm frame if your height sits between 5’8″ and 6’3″.

For reference, I’m 5’8″ tall and have the 58cm frame in matte black. If you’re shorter than 5’8″, then go for the 52-inch frame.

The Ride1UP Roadster V2 product page has full details on things like handlebar height, reach, maximum/minimum seat height, stand-over height, and seat tube length.

The saddle is soft and ergonomic enough for your rear end not to feel sore after longer rides, which is important because as this bike does not have any suspension on it.

You can adjust the saddle up, down, forward, and back, as you would expect.

The handlebars can also be adjusted up and down, so this should give most people enough flexibility to get a riding position that works well for them.

Watch my video below to get a better understanding of what the ride position is like – and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more eBike and outdoor gear reviews you can trust.

I don’t have any accessories for the Roadster V2 yet but the phone mount looks like it would be useful to have, in case you need to quickly access your smartphone for a call, or you are using it to follow directions for example.

Other nice-to-have accessories would be lights, fenders, and a kickstand.

Are the handlebars comfortable?

Considering the simple handlebar design, they are pretty comfortable. I mean there’s no ergonomics here but the pattern on the rubber grips does make the handlebars, very grippy, and padded to the touch.

How stable is this electric bicycle when riding off-road?

Yeah, don’t go buying this bike expecting to have an enjoyable ride off-road because that’s just a unicorn you’re never going to catch.

But that’s ok, this commuter bike wasn’t designed for off-road use, and that should be obvious from the lack of gears, suspension, and fat tires.

If however, you’re looking to ride on a lot of gravel, then I definitely recommend going for the Roadster V2 ‘Gravel Edition’.

This alternative to the standard Roadster V2 features lower gearing (and a slightly lower top speed) to reduce the chances of spinning out when accelerating, a single-speed Gates belt drive, Tektro disc brakes, and WTB gravel tires.

Is the electric motor noisy?

The motor is super quiet while riding but not silent, no electric bike is, especially an electric bike that has a peak power of 500w.

To get an understanding of the level of noise, check out my video at the bottom of this review.

Key features and specifications that matter (and some that don’t exist)

It doesn’t look like an e-bike, and its relatively lightweight

As mentioned briefly earlier, the Roadster V2 really doesn’t look like a typical electric commuter bike – AND I LOVE IT FOR IT!

Having a discreet electric commuter bike is in my opinion, a fairly untapped market when it comes to real contenders.

So when an attractive stealthy commuter bike like the Ride1UP Roadster V2 comes along, for a smidge over 1000 I might add, suddenly my attention is caught.

E-bikes are notoriously more attractive to bicycle thieves, so the less you can make a bike look like an e-bike, the less likely you’ll be a target to the common street thief.

ride1up, series, electric, bike, review

The bike itself only weighs in at 33lbs (and can take a total weight capacity of 275lbs), which to me is very impressive because most of my electric bike experience to date has been with more bulky-style bikes which are considerably heavier.

Check my video review out for a demonstration of me lifting the bike, if you have no reference point to how much 33lbs is.

Lightweight bikes have the advantage of being able to pick them up easily when mounting them, or lifting them onto public transport for example.

Battery power and life

You can get a lot of usage out of the Roadster’s 36V 7.0ah Samsung 35e Cells battery.

It takes from 2-4 hours to charge up the battery and you can typically go 20-30 miles on one charge, depending on rider weight, terrain, incline, and level of power assist being used.

The battery doesn’t appear to be removable, so that means you’ll either have to charge your Ride1UP Roadster V2 in the garage, or carry into your house and charge it there. Just as well it’s a lightweight bike, eh?!

Related Reading:

The LCD display is a mixed bag for me. On one hand, I love that it’s discreet and super simple to use but on the other hand, the small display also means there are small buttons.

These buttons can be a little tricky to locate on the fly while riding, especially if you’re wearing gloves during colder riding conditions.

My other issue is that there is no backlight on the display, so you’re a bit stuffed at night.

Oh, and if you tend to wear polarized sunglasses, they will completely wipe out the display when you look directly at it, meaning it will appear as though it is switched off.

It is super simple to use, however, which is nice especially if you’re new to electric bikes.

It has 5 levels of pedal assist which you cycle through with the up and down buttons, and it will tell you your speed, and how far you’ve gone. Oh, it also tells you how much battery you have left.

There’s also a tiny bell next to the digital display to alert other road or cycle path users that you’re about to zip past them.

4x Features that I wish the bike would ship with.

I don’t ask for much, and although the Roadster V2 is very reasonably priced for what you get, I would still like to see the bike ship with the 4 following features – who knows, maybe this will become an option for the Ride 1UP Roadster V3.

  • A kickstand – This would be all kinds of useful to have.
  • Lights – Having the bike ship with lights already connected up to the battery would be great.
  • Fenders – these would be great for riding in the wet so that I don’t end up covered in dirt. I guess Ride1UP must be encouraging its Roadster riders not to ride in very wet conditions, even though the bike is water-resistant, rated to IP65.
  • A backlight on the LCD screen – so that I can see things like the remaining battery charge, and the assist level I’m using while riding at night.

The Roadster V2 has a Gravel Edition – Here’s what you need to know about it

For those who are interested in a slightly more off-road version of this bike, the Roadster V2 Gravel Edition is the best choice – although it’s not designed for true off-road use, it will make riding on gravel much safer, and enjoyable.

The Gravel version of the Roadster v2 features lower gearing, a single-speed Gates belt drive, Tektro disc brakes, WTB gravel tires, internal Samsung Cells, a compact LCD display, and a fully smoothed alloy frame. Oh, it’s also 200 more expensive than the standard version.

Where to buy the Ride1UP Roadster V2 Commuter ebike

You can buy the Roadster V2 directly from ride1up.com for 1,045, which I think is excellent value for money for an electric bike that offers all that this one does.

If you ride a lot in urban environments and are looking for an ebike that offers great speed, good hill-climbing ability, and a stealth look that won’t draw attention to your bike then you really can’t go wrong with the Roadster V2 commuter ebike.

Frequently asked questions

Can you test a Ride1UP bike before buying it?

Good review. I have this bike and cycled about 2,000 miles so far. I swapped out the handlebar for something a bit wider and put a suspension stem on it. Added clipless pedals and a seatpost with more setback and added a better saddle. It’s a bit rough riding but the suspension stem helps. It’s very difficult to get up any hills without assistance from the motor since it’s geared fairly high. The gravel version didn’t exist when I bought this bike but I would opt for the gravel edition for greater comfort with the wider tires and the disc brakes.

It’s a bit more involved due to the rear motor and you’ll have the belt drive to think about but it’s not that hard to do with the right tools.

Cannondale Tesoro Neo X 3 Remixte – Our Pick

By now, Cannondale has become a household name in the e-bike world. This company is well known for producing high-quality bikes of just about any variety. from commuters to fitness and mountain bikes.

So, it’s no surprise that Tesoro Neo X Remixte is one of the best adult e-bikes you can pick up.

It’s a dream to ride, looks gorgeous, and has more than enough range to take you quite a few rounds around the town.

The only thing holding it down is its hefty price. Still, you can’t expect to pay pennies for a premium bike.

Cannondale Tesoro Neo X3 Remixte – Our Pick For Best Road E-Bike of 2023

Frame Build

The Tesoro Neo X 3 features what Cannondale calls a Remixte frame. This is just a fancy word for a frame that has a slightly lowered upper tube, so it’s easier to mount.

Another benefit to this frame design is that it combines the sturdiness of a step-over frame with the approachability of a step-through frame.

This is not where cool frame features end. all cable management is done through it. Besides resulting in clean frame lines, hidden cables also mean less potential for them to snap or break.

To make the ride as comfortable as possible, the Tesoro Neo X 3 features a front suspension with 100 millimeters of travel.

Motor Battery

This e-bike is fully decked out with Boch electronics. from the battery to the motor.

The most peculiar thing about this e-bike is that it features a Boch Performance mid-train motor. This means there’s no throttle, but it makes the e-bike lighter and better at climbing steep hills.

Tesoro X 3 Remixte features a Bosch Power Tube battery that can hold 13.4 Ah of charge. You can expect around 50 miles of ride on a full charge. I managed to squeeze out around 45 miles, but I live in a pretty hilly area.

It takes around 5 hours for the battery to recharge, which is almost an industry standard. If you’re planning on using this e-bike for daily commuting, I recommend you get a spare battery to eliminate any downtime for recharging.

Tires Ride

The Tesoro X 3 Remixte handles like a dream. You’ll feel almost no road shock thanks to the generous suspension travel and decent all-terrain tires.

And don’t worry if you snag a pothole; the aluminum fenders feature a durable tubular design. This provides additional stiffness and durability that’s much needed for rough terrain.

Ride 1UP 700 Series

The Ride 1UP 700 series e-bike can be described in one word. value. Not only does it feature a stylish frame, but it also comes with a powerful motor and a beefy battery. All that for a pretty affordable price.

The only thing holding this bike down is a bit more involved assembly, but when you factor in the price-to-performance ratio. this is a pretty reasonable sacrifice.

Ride 1UP 700 Series Electric Bike

Frame Build

The 700 Series features a pretty hefty aluminum alloy frame that comes in two flavors: step-through and step-over. Both versions weigh around 62 lbs. This does make it a bit more cumbersome to lug around, but at least the bike won’t break if you fall or run into a pothole.

Both the cables and the battery are hidden inside the frame to protect them from harm and extra style points.

On top of all that, the 700 Series also features a pretty decent front suspension with up to 100 millimeters of travel. The suspension works in combination with the fat tires to absorb almost all road shock. resulting in an incredibly pleasurable ride experience.

And since this is an all-around commuter e-bike, you also get a rear cargo rack with 50 lbs of carrying capacity for groceries and other knick-knacks.

Motor Battery

The 700 Series comes with a pretty beefy 750W motor that can churn out 62 Nm of torque. This makes it perfect for just about any type of terrain. You’ll have more than enough power to conquer even the steepest of hills with very little effort.

Another benefit to having a high-torque motor is that you can accelerate pretty fast. It will take you just a couple of seconds on the highest pedal assist level to reach the max speed of 28 MPH.

The motor is pretty responsive, so you’ll have no trouble adjusting to the pedal assist. And if you ever get tired of pedaling, you can always use the throttle system. But that will only get you to 20 MPH.

The battery is just as impressive as the motor. It is rated at 16 Ah and provides you with around 50 miles of range. This is incredible for an e-bike in this price range. Most other models struggle to provide you with even 35 miles of range.

Tires Ride

The 700 Series e-bike features 27.5-inch wheels with 2.4-inch high-volume tires.

Thanks to their heft, the tires are capable of absorbing quite a lot of road shock. Add to that the front suspension, and you get some of the best riding experiences ever.

If you’re looking for a decently priced, high-performing daily commuter, I recommend you give this e-bike a try.
