Ride1UP 700 Series Review 2022

There are lots of things I really like about the Ride1UP 700 Series, but arguably the most impressive is the fact that it’s specced with name-brand parts for a notably low price. Its hill climbing ability was a little less than expected.

Ride1UP 700 Step Through Review (Tested)

An overall great electric commuter bike. After spending two weeks riding the 700 Step-Through exclusively, I still can’t believe I’m getting all of the features and quality components on an e-bike priced at $____.

Complete Test and Review of the Ride1UP 700 Series Commuter Electric Bike

The power and braking on this is just fantastic. I’ve made it up that hill faster with this bike than with any other bike. As far as a well-built, affordable commuter bike, I think it’s a pretty good option. It does weigh 62 lb, the heaviest I’ve reviewed.

Ride1UP 700-Series Review

The Ride1UP 700-Series scored high marks across the board and is our top-rated electric bike. It’s on the heavier side. The 700-Series does have a somewhat more involved assembly process. Massive distance range.

Ride1UP 700 Series E-Bike Review – Does It Check All the Boxes on Our List?

It’s affordable, it’s powerful enough for light off-road riding, and it’s fast enough to clock 28 miles per hour. There are lighter electric bikes. Putting the Ride1UP 700 together can be a pain.

The 700 Series From Ride1UP: An E-Bike to Replace Your Car

An absolute unit of a bicycle that’s so impressive it’s kind of made my car obsolete. It might sound pricey but is pretty reasonable for all the features you’re getting. I can take this bike off-road without having to worry.

Ride1UP 700 Series Review

A commute-ready e-bike with sturdy aluminum alloy fenders and a versatile rear rack. Great value, given the name-brand components. The bikes fit into a smaller box and require more assembly than a lot of the other models I’ve tested.

Ride1UP 700 Series Review: Premium Feel, Budget Priced Class 3 Electric Bike

The Ride1UP 700 Series is priced higher than other models in the Ride1UP fleet. But you get a lot for the price increase; hydraulic brakes, larger battery, accessories. You’re unlikely to find a better value out there in a Class 3 e-bike.

Ride1UP 700 Series ST E-Bike Review

The 700 Series is a lot of bike for the money. Being a petite rider, I can easily say my favorite feature of the bike is its step-thru frame. Assembling the bike took me about two hours.

Ride1UP 700 Series XR Review – Best Budget Electric Bicycle

The Ride1UP 700 series packs a ton of high quality components at a very budget friendly price. However, there is a cost associated with that discount… much assembly is required! A complete package with lights, fenders, and rack.

Ride1UP 700 Owner Review After 600 Miles

The wheels arrive fairly true and have stayed that way. The brakes and derailleur only needed minor adjustment. Some wobble in the trueness of the chainring. The matte finish tends to show marks. I have thrown the chain twice.

Ride1UP 700 Series – 1500 Mile Review

There’s only one extremely steep hill by my house that the bike will not make it up. Around 900 miles, the bike developed a click. In my opinion, the failure point was the bearings in the bottom bracket.

Ride1UP 700 Series ST Electric Bike Riding Review

I’m getting close to 30 miles of range with this bike in most pedal assist levels, without getting much below 40% battery. It is a pretty heavy bike.

Pedal Power

Ride1UP 700 Step-Thru Review

Some of those other bikes, like the Aventon, their pedal assist levels are predetermined. You cannot map them yourselves. I like the easier progression of power, so this was a huge selling point for me.

2021 Ride1UP 700 Series

The 700 Series seems like a very solid bike in the first couple rides. Don’t think you’re going to get this out of the box and have it together in 45 minutes, unless you’re some type of professional.

Ride1UP 700 Series Mini Review

Probably the most impressive part of this bike is the battery. I’ve got about 27 miles on it, mostly pedal-assist, some throttle-only (just a little bit).

Ride1UP Series 700 Electric Bike Review

If you ever need a little bit of extra boost, you can hit this little button and it just sort of goes, and so that’s kind of cool, and it just sort of adds electricity right there. It’s pretty cool.

Ride1UP 700 28 mph E-Bike Review

Now, the thumb throttle is real handy. That’ll work even if you’re in pedal assist zero. It works anytime you give it throttle.

Buying a Ride1UP 700?

The seat is super-comfortable, nice big seat. I don’t need to wear funny pants. It’s pretty heavy but it’s very sturdy when you’re riding, even if you’re going really fast. The chain comes off a lot. I’d probably buy it again.

Ride1UP 700 Series E-Bike Review: So Much Bang for Your Buck

The bike is chock full of great components, attention to detail and a superb riding experience. There’s so much to love here that if it wasn’t for the cadence sensor, I’d feel like I was riding a much more expensive bike.
