Ride1Up Cafe Cruiser Electric Bike Review: A Stylish and Comfortable Ride for Cruising Around Town

The Ride1Up REVV1 I purchased last March is my daily commuter when the weather allows. It is a fantastic moped-style e-bike. The Ride1Up Portola, the company’s first foldable, is a superb bike, especially considering its sub-$1000 price tag; it’s now Raina’s bike. And now we have the Ride1Up Cafe Cruiser, which offers style and comfort in step-over and step-through designs.


The Ride1Up CF Racer1 Is a Class 3 Carbon Fiber E-Bike Designed for Road Racers Who Want a Little Help on Steep Hills

We’ve been impressed by Ride1Up’s e-bike offerings this year. The Revv1 is my absolute favorite moped/moto-style e-bike, and their Portola, Ride1Up’s first folding e-bike, knocked it out of the park. I’m currently reviewing their Cafe Cruiser, and I’ve been impressed. Their latest offering, the Ride1Up CF Racer1, is a design departure, and it looks stunning.


Heybike Horizon E-Bike Review: Full Suspension, Folding, Fat Tire Fun

I recently reviewed the Mars 2.0, another recent e-bike from Heybike, and I loved it. The Heybike Horizon went on sale last week and is currently priced at $1699.99. The Mars 2.0 currently sells for $1099.99. What is the difference between the two, and what justifies the added $600 expenditure? How about a Horst-link rear suspension and hydraulic front suspension, 24 “×4” fat tires, as well as hydraulic brakes and headlight and back/brake lights both with turn signals? How does it stack up? Let’s take a look.

Judie has the Rad Power RadRunner Plus e-bike on the way for review, and I’ve rarely seen her so excited about an upcoming gadget.

Virgo E-Bike Helmet Funding Safety on Kickstarter

I rode my first e-bike less than two years ago. I quickly wanted more speed, more torque, and more range. But I quickly realized that bike helmets don’t offer enough protection at higher speeds. Thankfully, the creatives behind the Virgo e-bike helmet thought similarly and have created a new type of safety helmet specifically designed for the higher speeds of electric bikes.

The Rambler 20 is an affordable and stylish electric bike that I’m excited about!


The eBike Classification System: What Does it all Mean, and Why Should You Care?

Over the last few years, eBikes have exploded in popularity, and over the past year and a half, I’ve become an eBike and electric scooter enthusiast. Judie has been a fan of the electric mobility solution for years; Kev bought her a Sondors Original eBike with fat tires and an extended battery for Christmas 2017 that’s still going strong. I’ve gotten a fairly rapid education on the ins and outs of eBikes in the last few months, and in this post, I want to share some insights into the eBike classification system.


Swagtron Swagcycle Pro Pedal-Free eBike Review: All of the Fun, None of the Work!

My son recently learned how to ride a bike, and it’s opened up a whole new world of excitement for him. In the fearless way of all small children, he’s jumping curbs and taking frighteningly tight turns like a pro. On the other hand, I am old and have a bad knee, making it a lot harder for me to keep up with him. So when I had the chance to check out the Swagtron Swagcycle Pro, I was super excited for the assist!
