This bike is an enjoyment to ride, the head angle is very upright and it is a short bike means that the handling is quick and you can navigate those tighter corners in the city.
The saddle is extremely comfy as it is big and squishy which is useful as you wouldn’t want to stand up to ride this bike as it is so short.
This updated version of the MiRider hasn’t got the mag spoked wheels that the original did, but this means it has shed a lot of weight and this helps the motor deliver more power.

The MiRider One has a rider height range of 5ft to 6ft 4in this is all because of the adjustable telescopic bar/steerer and telescopic seat post which has a flip-lever lock out. It’s great for if you are wanting to share the bike with other riders in your household.
The bike has a unified-rear-triangle (URT) suspension design that will only kick in when you are sitting on the bike as your feet are not sprung, the rear suspension to provide comfort than to be able to cope with rougher trails. The design also allows the bike to run with a single speed drivetrain due to the tension in the chain remaining constant.
On the bike the rear hub motor puts out 250w of assistant, it has a jump in torque compared to the previous version and also has a power boost trigger next to the right-hand brake lever. This gives you the assistance you need from the start without needing to pedal, when you hit 4.5mph the assistance switches to a boost of up to 15.5mph. This can keep you up with traffic when at the lights meaning that you won’t feel you are in the way of others or at risk of bigger vehicles.
The boost is also handy for when you are climbing up short, steep hills, whereas you would normally stand and pedal this button gives you the power you need to get you started and help with your pace to get you over that hill.
Battery & Range
MiRider says that you can get 40 miles of range and this would have to be mostly on flat, tarmac roads and that is even with switching between the five modes because as soon as you go down any rural paths the range will drop down to approximately 25 miles.
If you are someone who commutes to work and would appreciate the power assistance then your range would drop down to around 15 to 20 miles but you would be able to charge your battery at work as the charger is really compact. The battery clips off from the main frame and you can get it to be fully charged within two and a half hours, so your commute home would be worry free.
When the bike is folded it measures at 770mm x 430mm x 680mm this includes the bar and seat post at their lowest position. The bike has a large central hinge and a safety lock which allows the bike to fold in half and it is then secured by magnets on the front axle and the rear, all you have to do then is tidy away any cables.
At 17.2kg, the bike is still quite heavy to lift but there is a strap that keeps the bike secure and to stop it unfolding while travelling with it, but also to help with the wait is the small skate wheel that allows you to manoeuvre it easily whilst using the seat post as a hold.
There is an LCD display unit mounted on the bar which shows you the odometer, time, current speed and allows you to switch between five different power modes with up and down switches. You can also turn on the integrated light on the front of the bike by pressing and holding the up switch, really useful for if you are commuting during the darker hours.
2 year warranty if you register your bike in less than 30 days from the delivery, otherwise you only get one year – this will cover the frame, motor and battery. You also get coverage for the electronic components such as the electronic cabling, LCD display, throttle and electronic brake cut off’s.
1 year warranty on the charger, lights and all non-wearing mechanical parts.
