Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Ride1UP LMT'D. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

18 reasons to buy

  • With a torque sensor, the LMT’D delivers pedal assist that is quicker, smoother and more intuitive than on hub-motor e-bikes that employ a mere cadence sensor.
  • The Ride1Up's high-torque MXUS motor belts out a whopping 100 Nm of torque, enabling owners to lug bulk cargo.
  • The LMT'D's 750W motor allows riders to grind their way up almost any hill.
  • Ride1Up's LMT'D is offered at a competitive and affordable price.
  • The LMT’D’s clean lines incorporate an integrated battery, sveltely.
  • Moderate jounce is trounced by an 80 mm-travel, RST Asteria, air-suspension fork.
  • At 53 lb, reviewers commend the LMT’D for its moderate weight.
  • Dual-piston Tektro hydraulic brakes with 180 mm rotors work in consort with brake-lever-actuated motor-cut-off sensors to deliver confident braking.
  • LMT’D owners can adjust the number of pedal assist levels between 3 and 9.
  • Users can fine-tune the power delivery of the LMT’D’s assist levels.
  • 2.4”-wide WTB Groov-e tires cushion LMT’D riders across varied surfaces.
  • The LMT’D is a Class 3 e-bike that can reach 28 mph via pedal assist, or 20 mph on pure throttle.
  • Testers say the LMT’D’s display is easy to read, even under blazing, direct sunlight.
  • The LMT’D is available in 2 frame shapes: ST for accessibility & traditional XR.
  • A removable battery ensures security and allows LMT’D owners to charge anywhere.
  • Testers feel that the LMT’D’s gearing and range are well considered and generous.
  • The Ride1Up LMT’D is sold with a kickstand.
  • Some testers believe the LMT’D is suited to off-road pursuits.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The Ride1Up LMT’D is sold without a rear light, fenders or a rack.
  • Assembly of the LMT’D is more complex than a number of competing e-bikes.
  • One tester says the bike’s 2.4” tires create drag, causing the LMT’D to chew through battery rapidly and limit range.
  • An expert sees the LMT’D’s finish and appearance as lackluster.

Bottom line

The LMT’D is a Class 3 e-bike equipped with a torque sensor. Reviewers say power delivery is subtle and intuitive, unlike many competing hub-motor bikes. A 750 W MXUS motor delivers a generous 100 Nm of torque, allowing the LMT’D to lug loads and scale steep roads. The LMT’D now comes with a headlight; but no taillight, fenders or rack. Component quality is lauded, especially at this bike’s affordable price. Like other Ride1Up models, the LMT’D requires more assembly than competing e-bikes.

Ride1Up LMT’D Electric Bike Review

The MXUS motor on this e-bike can put out up to 100 Nm of torque. That’s way above the average for most electric bikes in a similar class, which makes it ideal for riders who want an e-bike that can pull cargo or a pet carrier.

Live Review Ride1Up LMT’D Step Thru

This is a very upright comfortable bike. It’s reasonably light. The brakes impressed me. Very clean looks. Its awesome display is in color, which is nice. Even though it’s pretty bright out right now, it’s very easy to read.

Ride1Up LMT’D – Mini Review

I haven’t had one issue with it. It’s exactly what I want; it’s fast, it’s powerful, it’s smooth. I’m somewhat technical so putting it together was no big deal but I could see where somebody that wasn’t so technical would have some issues.

Ride1Up LMT’D. 250 Review

I swapped out the chainring because I was only using the lower 4 gears and by changing to the 38-tooth I’m using more of the gear range and find the fourth and fifth gear to be normal for the grades that I ride.

The Ride1Up LMT’D XR E-Bike

The Ride1Up LMT’D raises the bar in a few key areas. Notably, the dual piston hydraulic Tektro brakes, the 750W continuous / 1,000W peak power motor… On the other hand, the RST Asteria Air Fork isn’t anything to write home about.

Ride1Up LMT’D First Ride Review

At least so far, the LMT’D chews through its battery like a heavier machine. There are five levels of assist, and anything less than level 4 wouldn’t shove me forward above 20 mph (yes, while pedaling).
