    Ride1up 700 Assembly

    I think so, everything seems good. The wife's only complaint is the seat it seems like it slanted down a bit, maybe because of the thick padding in the wide part of the saddle.. I like this bike it's a very good value. It's not as solid as my Trek Allant +7s., but that is expected as it cost...

    Ride1up 700 Assembly

    I think I got it all together,, It's been raining so I haven't been able to test ride really. Just a short run and my chain came off,, my fault. But just in my short ride what a big difference compared to my Trek Allant +7s,, as soon as I touch the pedal on the ride1up you feel the power,, and...

    Ride1up 700 Assembly

    Hello All, I just bought a Ride1up 700 step through series for my wife. I am not that skilled at working on bikes and would prefer to have a shop build it for me, however, they are busy this time of year and I don't want to wait a month. I'm just noticing putting on the brake caliper was pretty...

    Can Bosch Ebike battery be used as a power source during power failure?

    That's great Nafis,, a little above my electrical skill level.. shortly after I started this thread I bought a few solar panels and I now have an ecoflow delta and a bluetti eb70 Lithium battery banks. I have a small gas 2200 inverter generator as well. I prefer to use the electric...

    Platform Bike Rack for Bike with Fenders

    Looks nice, I have a regular frame Trek Allant +7s and I want to also carry a kids bike youth GT stomper 24" I would probably need the adapter for the kids bike which I already have. I currently own a Curt 4 bike hitch carrier that the bikes hang from and I'm not too happy with it. It scuffs my...

    Are GT E-bikes not sold in the US?

    I didn’t find it on bike radar but I’ll check it out. I had purchased a GT kids mountain bike for my son and I liked their bikes so I googled if they made ebikes and sure enough they do but not sold in US that I can see. I wonder if Dicks Sporting Goods chain will carry them since they sell GT...

    Are GT E-bikes not sold in the US?

    I came across this site https://www.gtbicycles.com/int_en/bikes/power-series.. I was just researching ebikes and I thought of GT since I just bought my young son a GT mountain bike at Dick's Sporting Goods. I looked at the forums here and there is no GT category under brands and I couldn't...

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    Thank you, I may consider a road bike as i never had one before... I should because I ride on roads most of the time. Ride1up also has a cheap road bike belt drive I wonder how long that small batter would last. It would be fun to meet up with other riders I go by myself most of the time, it...

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    I think you have me figured out all wrong. I do appreciate the Allant, it's well built it rides smooth and tight integration with battery and electronics and has good balance,, this is why I'd prefer not to build another bike, I just can't do it as well.. I still use my homemade ebike it's...

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    Good point, these are things to consider. I heard good things about smaller Ebike companies in the United States and some that they provide good customer service.. However there is chance these smaller companies may not be around in a few years. My Homemade Trek Ebike pictured above has lasted...

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    I understand your point. I'm just looking for advice on if these lesser expensive internet bikes are worth the money. I don't want to spend another $4,000 on a bike. But I would buy another bike at half the price if it is good.

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    Is the Ride1up really a yugo compared to the Allant or is the Allant just overpriced? The Battery for the Bosch motor on the trek though has a faceplate attached which you would have to remove every time, I’m not really sure what that entails I’ll have to take a closer look.. Also the battery...

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    Yes,, I like it there. I believe you had suggested it to me somewhere else in this forum. I have also done the one up to lake George the Warren County bike path and the Zim Smith Trail.

    Trek Allant +7s owner having the itch to buy a 2nd ebike

    I don't really need another ebike so maybe I should be talked off the ledge.. I like my Trek Allant +7s albeit it was very expensive. Since I bought my bike last year I have been perusing the forums and the Ride1up Lmt'd had caught my attention. I really like the idea of having a throttle in...
