Love the Rook

I ordered a Rook for my wife and a Colt for me about a month ago. I knew when I ordered that the Colt would be back-ordered, and I am still waiting for it. In the meantime I have put over 220 miles on the Rook, sometimes on paved country roads, and most of the time on the Katy trail in mid-Missouri, a hiking and biking trail on an old rail bed. The trail is primarily crushed stone and really level. I have enjoyed riding the Rook immensely. My wife is gradually riding it more each day. Assembling the Rook was not hard. Everything but the handlebar was already assembled. I had a little trouble adjusting the tilt on the handlebar because an Allen bolt was so tight, but eventually had the bike ready to go in about 20 minutes. There was even some juice in the battery so we were able to try it out immediately. People are always curious about the real range of the bike. I ordered the optional 14 amp-hour battery and just finished a 32.4 mile trip today on the Katy trail. The trail was absolutely flat and I set the assist level to 5, which is the maximum assist. I kept the speed between 18 and 20 mph, pedaling the entire time, using the highest gear (9). I weigh about 190 lbs., I had a bag on the back with a bicycle lock and Allen wrench set (don’t go anywhere without one), and a water bottle. When I finished, the battery said it had 31% left. You have to take battery readings with a grain of salt, particularly when the battery level is low. You will go farther on a battery from 90% to 70% than you will from 30% to 10%. When the battery is at 100% you can go the first 4 miles and it may still say 100%. Nevertheless, I think I could have gone another 3 miles and kept the battery above 20%; I read in some review that to extend battery life try to keep a 20% reserve in the battery. So the range for me is about 35 miles at full tilt and pedaling to end with 20%, almost 40 miles if I am willing to go to zero battery. As far as mechanical issues, I had the left crank fall off twice (I should have tightened it better after the first time). And if I had an Allen wrench, I could have fixed it in 2 minutes. Fortunately I picked up the crank, hit the full power button and went back to the car. A day later, I left that battery key at home and the Allen wrench in the car. I did not realize that you do not need the key to put the battery in the bike, only to remove it. So I rode off without the battery (actually not too bad), and when the crank fell off I walked the bike back. I tightened it correctly and have not had an issue since. There is a small 4 inch piece of the fender that turns up at the back. It is secured by a button and it fell off when my wife accidentally let the bike fall to the ground. Outside of this I have not had any problems. It’s true that the color display is a little hard to see in full sun, and the trip reset in the computer could be a little easier. It’s a class 2 e-bike, which means it tops out a 20 mph, but as everyone knows you can get set the limit higher by using the password that everyone seems to know (0510). I set it to 30 mph, and I can get 24-25 mph with full throttle alone on a level paved road. I am loving the Rook. I go 2 or 3 times as far as I would normally, and at twice the speed. I don’t have to limit myself to routes that have no large hills, which means there are so many more routes I am willing to travel. Overall the bike has exceeded my expectations. You can see some really good reviews of the Rook and the Colt at electricbikereview.com.

Awesome bike!

Purchased a 2020 Rook for my girlfriend for her birthday. We're both experienced riders, having both road and mountain bikes. I did a lot of research comparing about ten different bike manufacturers. I decided on the Surface Rook for the features, looks, availability, and price. Couldn't be happier with the choice. The bike arrived about a week after placing the order with no issues. The battery arrived the next day. Assembly was quick and easy, about an hour total. She's put about 100 miles on it so far with no problems at all. Fun to ride, she loves it! If you're considering an ebike, you can't go wrong with the Surface.

Exceeded my expectations.

Pleasantly surprised at ease of assembly for my first e-bike purchase. Great first rides and thrilling after getting the battery the next day. Wow!! Adrenaline rush!!

Awesome

It’s super awesome. I’m old and overweight so it’s perfect for me. Rode to the store today. Very fun. Just don’t have a guide on the computer usage so I’ll have to find out how to use it.

Great except display

Just got my Rook a week ago. Bike is great from the hydraulic brakes to the torque sensor peddling. Only major flaw is the display. You can't read it hardly at all in the bring sunshine. Wasn't a need for the color display and the lettering is very small. Should go with with other bike company's do. Also to reset you have to go into a menu (should be an easier way since most of us want to reset our mileage after each ride). Also setting a password on the display to lock/unlock the bike is not ideal. But overall the bike is great fun to ride and lower the power function. Didn't have to charge my battery until the 3 ride after almost 30 miles when it got down to about 42%.

POWERFUL 500W MOTOR

The Rook comes equipped with a 500W hub motor that is extremely powerful (peaks at 750W).

With a torque sensor and throttle on demand, the Rook is great for those that could benefit from an extra boost to make it up the hill.

Geared for performance - we paired all that power with an industry-leading 12mosfet 25A controller, so Rook delivers unmatched torque and speed.

Watch out for other riders as you zip pass them.
