Customer Reviews

Based on 133 reviews

The bikes arrived in about 1 week, although FedEx initially gave us false hopes by predicting the delivery date too early. There were some minor scratches in the finish, one of the derailleur guards was slightly bent as was one of the cargo racks. Both derailleurs required adjustment before all of the gears could be reached. The only real issue was a broken fender on one bike. Snapcycle quickly agreed to send a replacement and it arrived in just a few days. We are really happy with the free helmets and panniers from the Halloween special. The bikes came with better tires than expected, but I'm not sure the batteries are Samsung. They don't indicate a brand and they aren't UL listed. We are very impressed with the performance, beefiness, and finish of the bikes. We've now had a chance to use them a half dozen or more times including one 32 mile excursion and two shorter ones. We could not be more pleased.

First e-bikes II

Same comments as our other bike. My only regret is not getting a step thru like my wife’s. Really liked the sweet back handles on the step thru

First time ebikes

Finally got to take our new bikes for an initial run. Theses are our first e-bikes and it took a little bit getting used to. Rides like a champ. We went on a paved trail most of the way just so we could fine tune the adjustments on the seat and handlebars which we both loved. Easy to put together which I think it took more time to get the wrapping off than the assembly. Had one issue putting it together (my fault) so I sent a message to the company asking for help. They get right back to me with the solution and it was a easy fix. Great customer service. We love the bikes!! I’m 71 and my wife is 65.

Great purchase

The R1 step thru is everything I hoped for in an ebike! Assembly was a snap with the video guide. Customer service is outstanding! I am amazed at how smooth and comfortable the ride is. The power going up hills is a blessing to a guy who recently had back surgery. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone looking for one.

How can we help you?

Where do you ship from?

All our bikes are shipped directly from our warehouse in California.

Can l test ride a bike?

Yes you can, but our test ride network is currently limited to a few states. You can check them out here.

Is the seat height adjustable?

Yes it is. We use a quick-release seat post clamp mechanism in all of our bikes, which makes for swift and simple adjustments.

Do your bikes come in different sizes?

Presently, our bikes come in a single size. In general, most of them are suitable for riders between 5'3~6'4. You will have to refer to the respective product page of each model to find out the recommended rider height. If you are still not sure which bike suits you the best, you may drop us a message and we'll give you our personal recommendations.

Are your bikes waterproof?

Our bikes are water and dust resistant, rated IP54. This means that they can be ridden in the rain, but we would still advise against leaving them exposed to the elements. We would also recommend cleaning your bikes with a damp cloth instead of hosing them down, to prevent damage to any components.

Where can l get my bike serviced?

Being a consumer direct business, we currently do not have physical service centers available. We do, however, have retail partners that stock spare parts and work with us closely to provide aftersales support for our customers. Alternatively, we can provide remote support via video calls, more information can be found here.
