The wait is almost over! Within the next 30 days, the RadMission electric metro bike is expected to start showing up at the front doors of riders who placed an early preorder.
There’s a lot to love about this latest addition to the Rad Power Bikes lineup. For starters, it has an affordable price tag that makes it easier for more people to get into electric bikes. It also looks both cool and familiar, thanks to its sleek, stylish "traditional" bike frame and eye-catching colors.
But what really gets us revved up is just how fun this bike is. We’ve been test riding this single-speed model all over Seattle (for, uh, research of course ...) and we can’t get over the smooth, zippy ride feel, its remarkable ability to conquer hills, and how low maintenance the entire experience is.
Trust us. You'll want to start zooming around town ASAP. That's why we put together these tips to start your ride off right.
And, hey, if you've been putting off placing a preorder, you're not going to want to miss out on this, especially once you start to see these bikes showing up in your neighborhood. They'll be pretty easy to spot. Just look for the riders ripping down the street like they're having the absolute time of their lives.
Stock up on the essentials.
The last thing you want to happen after waiting patiently for your bike to arrive is to suddenly realize that you have to put off your first ride because you're missing a key piece of equipment.
As for tools, we provide everything you’ll need to help you get your bike assembled, but you should pick out a basic bike tool kit for any maintenance needs that may arise down the road.
This is also a great time to check out our online store for any accessories you may need to get the most out of your riding experience, like our new front-mounted basket or a rear rack to help you load up for a big weekend ride.
Keep an eye on your tracking information.
Shipping dates vary per model, but Rad Power Bikes will email you a tracking number once your order ships. You can use this to determine your delivery time and plan accordingly to receive your package.
To protect your purchase from the elements or would-be bike thieves, an adult needs to be on-site to receive the package at the time of delivery.
If you can’t make it, make sure you have a friend, relative, or other trusted acquaintance on hand to handle the drop-off.
Get acquainted with our online resources.
