Ready to Ride! The F4W Ride 350W is an easily rideable urban e-bike with it’s step thru frame and comfortable riding position.
The Ride has a solid looking aluminum frame that is designed to fit riders of all sizes.
The chainguard provides nice pant leg protection. A nice touch for this urban e-bike.
The Ride is equipped with a Shimano Alivio rear derailleur and an 8 speed cogset which provides a good range of gearing.
This is the 350 watt geared rear hub motor made by 8FUN (Bafang), a well known motor manufacturer in the e-bike world.
The Sony 36V 9ah lithium ion battery is located behind the seat tube of the frame. That is a nice location to keep the battery weight low and centered on the bike.
The battery has an on/off switch as well as a battery level indicator on the left side of the battery.
Removing the battery is easily done by unlocking it and rotating it to the left side of the bike.
The battery can be charged when it has been removed from the bike.
The battery can also be charged while it is on the bike as well.
The included charger is lightweight and small and could easily be taken to work or a local coffee shop for charging on the go.
The charging port is on the right side of the battery.

On the left side of the handlebar is the front brake lever, bell, and e-bike display.
This display on the F4W allows you to turn on the bike (along with the battery on/off switch), change the pedal assist mode, select mph or km/h, and get info on the battery level, current speed, trip distance, and overall odometer.
On the right side of the handlebar is the rear brake lever, twist grip throttle and the 8 speed rear derailleur shifter.
The Xoom suspension fork on the Ride helps smooth out rough roads. The Tektro v-brakes slow this Ride down.
The 26″ x 1.75″ Kenda Khan’s are speced front and rear on the F4W Ride.
The Kenda Khan tires have a smooth and low rolling resistance center tread with some side knobs for some off road cornering traction.
The saddle on the F4W Ride is a typical city commuter style saddle.
The front LED light on the F4W ride is powered by its own batteries.
This is the rear LED light attached to the rear rack. It is powered by its own batteries.
