Ride1UP Roadster Ghost - Electric Commuter Bike
New for 2019, the Ride1UP Roadster Ghost is a simple, refined, class 3 electric bike. This budget electric bike has no gears or shifter, but can reach speeds of up to 26 MPH with pedal assist (PAS) or 20 MPH with throttle only. The Roadster Ghost has a sleek concealed look.
The throttle is on the right hand side. The LCD screen, which is on the smaller side, offers 3 pedal assist settings: Eco, Mid, and High.
The Roadster Ghost comes with a rear rack and fenders, but no front suspension.
Also included is an integrated LED tail light and headlight. The battery is removable, but not without tools.
The cadence sensor is more accurate than on some bikes, with 24 magnets.
This bike also has a narrow allowable height range because of the flat top tube frame style.
Battery lifespan depends significantly on how the battery is maintained. Under healthy conditions, the battery is rated for 800 cycles. This could last 5 years or longer depending on use and storage/care of your battery. Additionally, batteries be charged on or off the bike, and the charger has its own LCD gauge for charge levels.
Sizing - The top-tube is 28" off the ground. Recommended height: 5'4"-6'1"
