    Will XP2.0 load through Subaru Outback rear hatch?

    Mike G, I would think you would have no issues. I have a 2016 Crosstrek which I believe has basically the same height at the opening (28" lowest at the corners, 29-1/2" at the center). Plus the height increases further inside. The Outback's cargo area is wider and longer. While I didn't...

    *4000 miles, 1 year later* Roadster V2 w/ extended battery *UPDATED*

    Thanks PSm for the recent 4000 mile update. I do enjoy those updates. I have both the Roadster and the Gravel. I also really like the Roadster, the Gravel a little less so. Have 600 miles on the Roadster, 500 on the Gravel. I love working out at the gym (weights) and then jumping on the...

    Sliding saddle post

    Everything PDoz says PLUS: I think you have a 27.2 post. I've found they do tend to slip some. Two things: 1. After tightening the lever, then use your multi-tool and tighten the "screw" another 1/8 turn or until it stays. 2. All else fails lose some weight 😜.

    What other bikes should I look at?

    There are a few dealers and service centers in the US. Raleigh (correct?) does not have either - just a few "ambassadors". https://ride1up.com/locations/

    Do you still ride your analog bicycle?

    Actually ridding myself (OK just mostly - will keep 1) of overweight ebikes for this. 2022-team-marin-2 Would love one of Spot's bikes (single speed or whatever) but this Marin will do - for now.

    *4000 miles, 1 year later* Roadster V2 w/ extended battery *UPDATED*

    On my gravel, I converted the stock 550mm/20 degree rise handlebar and +20 degree/60mm stem to a 680mm handlebar and +6 degree/80mm Redshift suspension stem. The handlebar is a 31.8 mm bar clamp (fits the Redshift w/o a shim), 680mm length, 20mm rise, 9 degree back sweep, 5 degree up sweep and...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Maybe I can help with your 2 posts. I have both versions. I ride both on paved and gravel surfaces. 1. On weight. I have both in the 52 cm size. I weighted it originally using a not real accurate scale. Was just trying to get a rough idea of the difference. The gravel weighted a bit over...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Seems to be an issue with the "front wheel factory person". My regular Roadster had the same issues (truing, cone). Once resolved you'll notice a big difference depending how tight the cone was. Good luck. I still really like these bikes! Oh BTW, they (Ride1Up) gave me a $40 coupon after I...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    FYI. For you who have received or are in the process of receiving or ordering - Make sure you, when receiving, to check the gravel bike out for "defects". Looks like some QC issues. I have advised Ride1Up. For me so far (all of which I have or can handle): 1. Front wheel out of true 2...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Taylor you may want to also check your headset. I noticed mine is loose. Not a big deal to tighten. Couple of other observations: 1. Yes the bike weights more than 33#'s. I came up with it at 35.7#, so close to your 36#'s. 2. The bike is bigger (taller) than the "regular" V2. Standover...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Front or back or both? My regular V2's front wheel was out of true and the axle cone was too tight. My gravel is a bit out of true but just a smidge. But the axle cone is again too tight. So are your wheels in true? Have you contacted Ride1Up or gone to their FAQ pages? Lots of help there...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Interesting. Mine is the smaller sized one (52cm). Yours? Not that sure how accurate my scale is. Was more a test to see the difference between the two. I'm away for awhile but will weight both on a more accurate scale when I get back. Haven't put on the battery extender yet.

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    A pleasant surprise today, my Gravel arrived AND so did the battery extender (still in the box). Everything went together fine - no issues. The front wheel might be a bit out of true but I'll deal with that if it actually is. I have the Roadster V2 as well and I really like it. That's why I...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Mine (Gravel) is still at Fedex Troutdale (OR). I also have a V2 roadster now. Fits me perfect and I can climb some pretty good hills. Will try doing the Crown Point climb that someone thinks can't be done on a single speed (have on an analog bike in the past) - either with the V2 (probably)...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    So Taylor have you received your gravel? They're in stock. I just ordered one. Nufo - just guessing on speed probably a MPH or 2. Range - we'll see.

    New Aventon Model coming..

    Couple of additional points: 1. Weight on the single speed is 41#, 43# on the 7-speed. So lighter than the Aero but heavier than the Rize "Fixie" (34#), Ride1Up V2 (32-33#), Tenways (34#) and the Luna (39#). 2. Standover height is fairly "robust" on the 2 sizes listed - +31" and 32.6". 3...

    2 Rad Power Bikes in the back of a Subaru Outback?

    No just kidding. I like Subaru's. Can my Crosstrek go where my Jeep can go - no, even though it (Crosstrek) is somewhat modified. Well except in snow, then the Subie shines. How is the Radmini you ask. I like my mini. You might want to consider them (still at $1299), especially now, before...

    2 Rad Power Bikes in the back of a Subaru Outback?

    No. I believe one could come with an alternative mounting point/solution. But....on the Subaru's, the area at the back is just a lift up cover over the spare tire storage area. So you'd just be drilling thru that. To me that would not be an issue. No doubts, to carry 2 RadRovers - a rack...

    2 Rad Power Bikes in the back of a Subaru Outback?

    Or if you really want to keep them inside the Outback. A floor thru axle mount. I know Rocky Mount has one and I believe Yakima does also - they're like 80 bucks each. You'd need to do some drilling to mount on the floor and take off the front wheel. Looks like there is probably enough head...
