Upright! Cafe Cruiser from Ride1Up is Comfy, Casual

The Cafe Cruiser from Ride1up is the latest ebike review courtesy of the company. This is my third ebike review from their lineup having previously tested the Core5 and LMT’D.

Here’s how Ride1Up describes the Cruiser;

Blissful comfort and plus-one cargo capabilities blended together for one of the most versatile and functional eBikes money can buy. Install our passenger kit and add a passenger on the back of the electric bike while cruising around your town. You no longer have to sacrifice style or comfort to have all the features you want on electric bikes, the Cafe Cruiser blends them all into one ebike.

Not only is the CafeCruiser comfortable to ride but it also features a unique frame style that I have never seen on another ebike. Those 40 degree swept back handlebars help make the ebike so smooth to ride. They almost surround you as you roll over pavement.
