From warehouse to roadside: unveiling the Upway experience

With Upway, you’re not just buying an e-Bike at an affordable price: you’re investing in a seamless and trustworthy experience.

Every electric bike goes through a rigorous inspection and refurbishment process in our warehouse in New York City, ensuring it is in top-notch condition before it reaches your doorstep. We stand by the quality of our e-Bikes with our 1-year warranty that covers any mechanical or electrical failure. Join our community of fans and ride with confidence, knowing that we’ve got your back every step of the way.

How we source, inspect and repair our e-bikes


We source only the best electric bike brands in the world from collaborations with manufacturers, bike shops, and individuals.

Explore top-tier American brands like Specialized, Super73, Cannondale, and Rad Power, and discover other brands such as Riese & Müller, Stromer, and Gazelle, which are fan favorites across the world.

2. 50-Point Inspection

Our bikes undergo a rigorous 50-point inspection to ensure there is no structural damage to the frame, mechanical components, drive system, battery, and accessories. The inspection helps us identify necessary potential repairs.

You can find the inspection checklist of each of our e-Bikes on their product page.

3. Mechanical repairs

We replace all worn parts that are not in like-new condition: tires, brakes, cables, and chains. Then, our mechanics:

  • Bleed hydraulic brakes

  • Replace worn bearing systems

  • True wheels and replace spokes

  • Lubricate the chain

  • Run a comprehensive quality control check to ensure proper adjustement and alignment of all components


Unlike conventional bicycles, electric bikes incorporate advanced electrical components. 

Our team proceeds with the repairs identified during the initial inspection, which includes among others:

  • Refurbishment or replacement of the battery if the residual capacity is below 80% of its original value

  • Replacement of the torque sensor

  • Repair or replacement of the display, lights, indicators, alarms...


Each bike has its brakes aligned and adjusted for positive, confident braking, and the drivetrain is dialed in for crisp, accurate shifting. 

The bike then overgoes a deep clean and a quality-check from our senior-most mechanics.


The final stage in the process is for your bike to be carefully packaged by our warehouse team.

Your bike first undergoes a last inspection from our mechanics, before it is carefully protected in our custom packaging. It will then be packed in our box with the appropriate accessories (charger, keys and assembly tools) for delivery to your home.
