F4W Ride Review

The F4W (fast forward) Ride is a well rounded, affordable and practical entry level electric bike. It has lights, fenders,  rack,  and a basic suspension fork on the front. It offers both twist throttle mode and three levels of pedal assist for improved range and climbing.

The bike has an average sized motor and battery system that offers enough power and range.The bike uses a 350 watt geared hub motor combined with a 36 volt Lithium-ion battery pack.The motor is made by 8Fun (Bafang in China) which is a reputable brand.  It can be activated via twist throttle mode or through one of three pedal assist modes. Geared hub motors are known for offering solid torque and power for their lighter, smaller footprint. The battery offers 9 amp hours of power that can take us 20 to 40 miles depending on how much we use the twist throttle verses pedal assist. The battery can be charged on or off the bike since it is also removable.

Operating the Fast Forward Ride is relatively simple.  The LCD computer display is very small and simple. It shows speed, distance traveled and battery capacity. One drawback of the bike is that the pedals are rubber and plastic making them easier to slip off of in the rain. Read the complete review from
