After many weeks of research and reviews, we are the new happy owners of the Ariel Rider C-Class bike. The bike is well built with great features and the best part, it's a great value. The bike was bought for my wife as she has always struggled with hills and high altitude trails in CO. Now every trail is a flat road to her. She rides everywhere and enjoys biking once again. Great job Ariel, I'll be ordering mine soon.
This is my first electric bike and I love it. For the price you get decent components and it's super fun to ride. I commute to work everyday and it's easy to load and carry my stuff.
I put a surf rack on this bike and use it to go surfing at a beach that's a few miles from my house. It's perfect for this use, and the bike is so fun and easy to use that I may commute to work with it from time to time. The bike makes going up steep hills almost effortless. The drive train is smooth and powerful, and the control system is intuitive. I don't know of any other bike with comparable features that isn't far more expensive. The front fork and suspension seat are pretty low-end, but, given the low price, this is completely understandable. The rest of the bike far exceeded my expectations.
As people have noted in other reviews, the online user's manual is pretty bad. Its assembly instructions are useless, and the rest of the manual has lots of misprints and is spotty in terms of what it covers. That said, people with basic familiarity with bike assembly should be able to figure out how to assemble the bike. One hint that may be useful to people: although the bike ships with many spacers on the front fork's mounting stem, you should only use two of the spacers when you assemble the bike. I guessed this, and then confirmed with customer service that this was the right guess.
One other positive: I've contacted customer service a few times with questions and got helpful responses nearly immediately.
Overall, I highly recommend this bike.
Love this bike, very sturdy, there is one negative - no directions on assembly, everything was pretty intuitive except tightening the stem that pre-loads the gears on the stem, pretty important!!! There was a neighbor who worked at a bike shop that noticed it was loose & he helped me find the screw to tighten it. But besides that it is great, don't hesitate to buy.
