    A great overall experience ...

    I purchased the R1 model. I researched plenty of e-bikes. I typically BUY from long-established companies, but I decided to try Snapcycle, after seeing a handful of favorable Youtube videos on the R1. We'll see how they do, and how the bike holds up, over time. Both have been great, so far. Been mt. biking for +30 yrs., so I've seen my share of bikes.

    The purchase and delivery went smooth. Assembly was straight forward.

    I swapped out a few things to suit my needs. Not because it needed it, but just to tweak it. A new seat, suspension seat post, short fenders, pedals with 1/2 toe clips, new handlebar stem riser, and 2 free-standing waterbottle cages/bottles (these bikes don't have braze-on attachments). I've also 'heard' that a simple menu adjustment, can unlock the bike to Class 3 speeds.

    I've put +150 miles on it. Runs great. Powerful, smooth motor, and it eats HILLS for breakfast ! Gone from doing +6 mile rides on my other bikes, to now doing 15 - 20 miles, and getting even more of a workout.
    Lots of folks, ask about my bike. I've probably sold a few (indirectly), already. Give Snapcycle a try. You'll love the bike, and their service !

    Exceeded All Expectations

    Our 2 Snapcycle R1 bikes went together easier than expected! Following a full charging cycle, a read of operating the bike I took the bike out for it’s maiden voyage. The ease of adapting to the assist was minimal. The acceleration of the assist was amazing! Can’t wait to get out in the bikes again tomorrow for a longer ride! Ordered a rack today so we can take the bikes along on our many travels this year!

    Dream Machine

    Blast to ride I logged in 51 miles and still have 2 bars left, changed the ramp to 1 and set the PAS to 0-9 installed an adjustable stem riser and a cloud 9 seat, love the hydraulic brakes and the speed sensitive cadence. Customer service is the best in the business, looked into several bike, and so glad I bought the Snapcycle. Looking forward to many,many more miles.

    Snapcycle R1 is a GREAT EBIKE

    Had to wait awhile because of shipping delays. Ordered before Christmas and did not receive the Ebike until early February. Shipping box was undamaged and the bike was well wrapped. I received the upgraded version with hydraulic brakes and integrated rear light. There were a few things that were different than the installation video. The handlebars are different than the installation video
    - Handlebar attachment is different
    - Derailer guard attachment not discussed. Yes I know easy enough to figure out
    - Power to rear light not discussed. Yes I know easy enough to figure out.
    I am 72 and have not rode a bicycle since I was a young man so it took a few rides to get used riding an Ebike, using the pedal assist and throttle and the additional weight of an Ebike. So glad I got the Step-Thru model. I am not so sure I could have gotten my leg over the middle bar of the non step-thru model.

    It’s amazing how much the pedal assist helps me ride. At 72, I have had both knees replaced and standing up to pedal to make it up hills really hurts them both. With this bike, I stay seated going up hills, adjusting pedal assist as necessary to stay seated.

    In response to a request for information about whether I had changed the Ebike from Class 2 to Class 3, I stated:

    So far I have left the Ebike a class 2. The most painful thing when I bike is having to stand to bear down on the pedals to go up a hill. So far at level 2 and using the bike’s gearing I have had no problems going up some good sized hills using pedal assist 3. So far haven’t had to use pedal assist 4 or 5.

    In summary, a great purchase, no regrets.

    72 and more then happy

    I am 72 with bad knees and thought bike riding was over until I got the R1 step threw .
    The bike arrived in good condition and assembly was easy . It has amazing hydraulic brakes , headlamp is bright and clear , and the wired tail lamp is bright . 20 miles per hour is plenty fast enough for me so have left in on stage 2 . I added 4.5 in steering riser and. Spring assist seat post . A phone holder and rear carry bag helps for small shopping trips. Can’t wait to get a Snapcycle front carrier when they are available so the dog can ride too . I would recommend this bike to family
