    Good So Far

    I'm new to ebikes and wanted to get a very reliable bike. I did a lot of research and decided that Snapcycle was a good brand to trust with this important purchase. Well, so far so good. It has a lot of power, and I really like the low step frame. This makes it easy on the hips.

    Snapcycle R1

    Steve and Kelsha deserve a lot of credit for making the purchase of a new ebike a fabulous and very easy experience! Snapcycle R1 is very easy to assemble a few things and have the bike ready to ride. Steve recommended this step through model for my wife that is 5’3” and he was right, she loves this bike and so does everyone who sees it! I rode it and the bike is very responsive, very smooth and stops on a dime with the new hydraulic brakes. Another upgrade to this bike is the integrated brake light, it’s awesome and I wish my cheetah plus had this feature. It’s very easy to see my wife brake when she’s in front of me as the brake light will activate anytime she brakes day or night! Looking for an all around awesome step through ebike model, do not hesitate to call Steve and order the step through Snapcycle R1, you will not regret it!

    Perfect Ebike For Older Rider

    I am in my late 60s, and needed a e-bike with enough power to help me up hills in my neighborhood. I also needed a bike with a low-step frame, because of my hip replacement. The R1 ST is perfect for me. It is easy to operate and super fun to ride. It's really life changing. Thank you.
