When searching for a bike shop (for assembly, maintenance or repairs), it may be best to search for "bike shop" rather than "ebike shop"
Some may find this surprising, but many of the components on your new bike do not require an electric-bike technician.
You can search bike shop on yelp or google and contact a local bike shop (that has great reviews and prices) to help you assemble and maintain your bike.
High-end ebike shops will likely sell ebikes and may not want to work on an ebike of a different brand or one not purchased from them. By looking for bike shops instead, you should be able to find a great local bike shop that can assist you for the life of your bike!
Other local bike shops may be intimidated at the thought of working on an ebike. However, we are here to support you and them in troubleshooting or replacing parts as needed. We can assist anyone who is familiar with basic hand tools, carefully following the steps provided, and clearly reporting back the findings (sometimes with pictures and or video).
Some shop owners or bike mechanics may not realize this, so it makes a difference if you let them know that Support@Ride1UP.com is available and happy to assist.
We are currently building a network of bike mechanics (below) that are familiar with Ride1UP Ebikes and that a Ride1UP ebike owner reported having a good experience with. If they are in your area, it may be beneficial to reach out to them for a service/assembly confirmation.
*If you have recommendations or updates for our list of mechanics that have done an outstanding job on your Ride1Up Ebike, please share your experience, we appreciate your input!*
