Revi eBike is Awesome!

I’m really enjoying this bike. Easy to assemble and set up. Took some getting used to on the controls, it really takes off. Not really designed for a workout, but certainly makes errands and exploring a lot of fun.

Loving the Revi Runabout e-bike

I am having so much fun riding around on the Revi Runabout bike that I got from Steve. The baskets are great. The one on the front is for my 15 pound dog that now goes everywhere with me and LOVES it. The big back basket will be for groceries, when I finally get the nerve to leave it locked up outside a store....but in the mean time we have a lot of fun riding on the creek trails near by. Steve was great to work with and quickly answered my questions. Thanks so much Steve! Emily

Good For Short Riders

I was worried to get an ebike without trying it first, because I'm only 5'-1" in height. But they assured me that it would fit well, plus I really liked the curved handlebars and 3" balloon tires. I was set on getting a folder, but this worked out well for me.

Great Little E-Bike

I've been looking at e-bikes for awhile. I saw this bike at the Reno Air Races this past September. It was immediately the bike I wanted. Very easy assembly. The ordering process was fast and straightforward. Be aware that this is a heavy bike. This is a very solid bike. The 5 power settings are great. I’m 71 yrs old and going up a steep hill is no problem. The power assist instruction booklet not too user friendly. There are instructions for functions that I have no idea what they are talking about. Pretty comfortable seat for a fat old man. I love the racks on the bike. I really like this bike.

Revi Runabout Ebike Description

Are you looking for an everyday electric bike that's easy to use, comfortable to ride, and super convenient? Would you like an ebike that is specially designed for cruising around the city, with a low-step frame for easy boarding, intuitive controls and an informative LCD display?

Then let me introduce you to the new Revi Bikes (formerly Civi Bikes) Runabout. This incredibly affordable ebike is so feature-packed that won't believe it only costs $1,499. Let's begin with the obvious - it's electronics. The Runabout sports a 500W geared rear hub motor running at 48V, for incredible climbing ability. Pair that awesome motor with the long-range 48V/14.5Ah battery, which can deliver about 45 miles of travel on a single charge.

Electronics aside, did you notice that the Revi Bikes Runabout comes with an aluminum front basket, fenders and a rear rack, with the matching rear basket as an optional accessory.

That makes the Runabout the perfect ride for trips to the grocery store or farmer's market. You may find yourself going out for several rides each day, to visit with friends or catch the sunset from a favorite lookout.

Electric Bike Review (EBR) Coverage of Runabout

Court Rye from Electric Bike Review (EBR) has just reviewed the Civi Runabout, and you should definitely check what he has to say. In summary, this is what EBR says the Civi Runabout:

  • A powerful stout short tail cargo electric bike with mechanical disc brakes, 7-speed drivetrain, 500 watt hub-drive, and high-capacity 48v 14ah battery pack for longer range
  • Capable and purpose built for possibilities, there are great available accessories like rear basket, double pannier bags, or a duffle bag
  • Slightly upgraded Shimano Altus derailleur, adjustable length kickstand with good positioning, and low stand over height means not only easy to get on and off, but also very easy to load and unload
  • Cost saving measures means basic brakes and no lights, not suited for bigger jobs, and the cup holder in the front can get in the way of load possibilities

  • hi there.. i have your bike.. it has a flat.. whats the model number of my bike.. i cant find it...runabout low step cruisre civi bike love it

    There is no model number. It's just the Revi Runabout. Fixing a flat tire on this bike will be the same as any other bike.

  • I Am 4'11. I would need the seat post cut to fit my height. can you do this?

    We do not have the ability to cut the seatpost, but the Runabout is good for shorter riders.
