BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

16 reasons to buy

  • The Ride1UP 700 Series has two modern frame styles available for riders. The bike is offered with the ST (step-through) or XR (step-over) frame.
  • The step-thru frame used by the ST model is excellent for riders with limited flexibility and mobility, who may struggle to lift their leg over a traditional frame.
  • The upright riding position is relaxed and comfortable.
  • Testers were pleased with the plush, wide saddle on the bike.
  • Ride1UP offers riders 9 levels of pedal assist, a walk mode and throttle on the 700 Series.
  • A front suspension fork and wide, 2.4” tires minimize the impact felt riding over rough roads.
  • The bike’s motor can generate up to 800W at its peak and reach 28mph. Riders found that this made the bike an excellent substitute for commuting by car.
  • The Ride1UP 700 Series includes a rack and fenders.
  • The bike's rack has a carrying capacity of 50 lbs. This allows riders to attach panniers for trips to the store or work.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The Ride1UP 700 Series is heavy. It weighs over 60lbs.
  • One expert noted that there was a delay in readings from the cadence sensor.
  • Testers found the bike's display was crowded with information, making it a bit hard to read.
  • Assembling the bike is a lengthy process, according to test riders.

Bottom line

The Ride1UP 700 Series is a stylish electric bike. It is available with an XT or ST frame. The ST (step-thru frame) allows riders with limited mobility to easily mount and dismount their bike. It is an extremely plush bike that's specced with a wide gel-cushion seat, front suspension fork, upright handlebars, fenders and 9 levels of pedal assist. A rack allows riders to use this bike as their daily commuter. Testers had few complaints about the bike. It does require assembly. Ride1UP offers informative videos to help users complete this lengthy process. The display is small on the 700 Series, making it difficult for some users to read the information displayed on the screen. One tester also found there was a delay between the cadence sensor and the display. This bike costs less than most other electric bikes in its category.
