Amazing Bike, Great Deal

I've had this bike for nearly three weeks now. I am in love. I do not drive so this is perfect for me. I either walk, ride bike or use taxi cabs or Uber. This bike almost completely eliminates the need for all the above. Every time I would have called for a cab saves me money. Every time I would have walked or even rode my push pedal bike, it saves me time.

I have priced many other ebikes and did research on what the best bike would be for my budget. I would have easily paid several hundred more then what they sell this bike for. It's an eye looker to . Every time I go for a ride I get compliments or asked questions about it.

The third day I had it I got a flat tire . I thought it would be difficult to fix but to my surprise it was as easy. Actually it was easier to replace the tube then with my push pedal bike.

The only things I would like to see with this bike or recommend people who buy this bike do is a GPS and some tire liners to prevent theft and flat tires.

Very nice bike I highly recommend to everyone. I am planning on buying the smaller fold up model in the near future

Finally a little competition for the Harley

I have been a Harley rider for years, have two Corvettes and two great bicycles. My son loaned me one his evokes as I’m dealing with pretty demanding back issue and he thought the ebike would keep me in the exercise mode. He was right, I loved it from day one. As I shopped for something a little closer to my ideal ride I came across the Snapcycle r1.
The Snapcycle met all my criteria and exceeded my expectations. Quality build, handsome look and very strong performance. The finale issues was economics and the Snapcycle was right where it needed to be.
I love the ride quality, the power and performance.
Glad to be part of the Snapcycle family.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got more questions? Contact us

Where do you ship from?

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


Can I 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.

Does your bike come in different colors?

At the moment our R1 and S1 series come in a single color, but we'll be looking to offer color variations in the near future, so stay tuned and keep an eye on this space!

Does your bike come in different sizes?

Presently, they only come in a single size, but they're suitable for riders between 5'3~6'4. If you're outside of that range and would still like to know if the bike will suit you, please 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 I 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.
