Donnie Keller - Seattle, WA
Mobility has always been a passion point for Donnie starting from a young age. As a freshman in high school, Donnie was diagnosed with an acute form of bone cancer that eventually led to the amputation of his right leg above the knee. His whole world changed and he was confronted with a new series of questions and challenges to try to regain his mobility and freedom without breaking the bank.
Now, many years after losing his leg, Donnie has pursued activities ranging from competitive swimming to motocross. But when it came to cycling, he couldn’t quite find the right solution that balanced his need for power assistance and on/off-road capability. So when electric-powered bikes went mainstream he was re-energized with confidence. However, his excitement quickly diminished when he confronted the cost of the average ebike usually in the $3-4k range. He then found the RadRover. It had everything he was looking for; quality construction and components, off-road capable, long range battery, and most importantly affordable!
Donnie put over 100 miles on his RadRover in less than a month (with many more since then), using it both on and off-road and even hit the trails at the local mountain bike parks.
The RadRover has completely opened a whole new world to Donnie and he has no intentions of stopping!
George Buttle - Sacramento, CA
George is 65-years-young and has been suffering from Osteoarthritis for 20 years. An avid filmmaker, he has trouble most days walking or standing for extended periods of time. Without a car, this means George walked most places he went. His Osteoarthritis did not go easy on him though, as constant knee pain became commonplace in his life. George had not ridden a bike since his diagnosis, but that all changed when he discovered the RadRover!
As George describes it, the RadRover has changed his life. He can now ride a bike without the constant pain and discomfort his Osteoarthritis causes him because the pedal assist takes the strain off of his joints. George praises the bike for its incredible quality, low price compared to other ebikes, and just how fun it is to ride!
George loves how much money he is saving on transportation costs, how he is reducing his consumption of fossil fuels, and how the RadRover overall has improved his health and mobility. Thanks to the RadRover, George is a new man! He even calls the RadRover the “coolest bike on the planet!”
When he’s not riding his bike, you can find George behind a camera as a filmmaker in Sacramento, California.
Ryan Allred - Salt Lake City, UT
Ryan used to be an avid mountain biker up until a few years ago, averaging about 150 miles between commuting during the week and mountain biking on weekends. In 2013, he noticed his energy was starting to dwindle and he was having stomach issues on a regular basis. Within a month of seeing the doctor, Ryan was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease and the lack of energy and constant pain meant he could not ride a bike like he wanted to.
After scrolling through Instagram, Ryan saw a picture of an electric bike from Rad Power Bikes and decided to purchase one. Almost instantly, Ryan took back the freedom his disease had threatened to take from him. He is now able to commute to work again on his RadWagon and he also uses it to explore for his side photography business!
Ryan no longer feels limited by his disease. He can run errands around town, get to and from work with ease, and adventure with his kids sitting on the rear deck. Before discovering the RadWagon, biking was no longer an option for Ryan. Now, you can hardly get him off of it!
"I feel more like myself now than I have in the last 3 years!"
Erik Wang - Springfield, VA
Erik was one of the early RadWagon owners. Purchasing the bike late 2015, he has taken it on trips ranging from short neighborhood rides to overnight camping trips on the Great Allegheny Passage Trail. Not only is Erik a fan of the electric pedal assist, his dog Brody enjoys taking trips with him on the RadWagon too!
Since purchasing the RadWagon, Erik has noticed a huge increase in his freedom and flexibility in hauling cargo to and from his favorite places. Before, he often had to choose whether or not he can bring his dog along for the journey, but the RadWagon has made it so Erik never has to be far from man’s best friend. Erik was surprised by how long the battery lasted while on his trips, which helped put his mind at ease knowing the bike would be able to get him home reliably.
Erik has added several personal touches to his RadWagon to make it truly his own, including his favorite saddle, pannier bags, and an extra battery for the occasional extra-long trek.
David O'Connor - Dedham, MA
David, a brass musician, purchased his RadWagon in early 2017 after spending countless hours researching electric cargo bikes. He needed a bike that could replace his car as lowering his carbon footprint and getting a car off the road were very important to him. After owning the RadWagon for a while, he can describe how his life is now with only one word: joyous.
David is in his late 50’s now but he says he feels 12-years-old again whenever he is riding his RadWagon. He loves how he is able to calibrate his workout when riding by adjusting the pedal assist level on the fly. This allows him to cut down his commute when he needs to by riding in a high level of assist or get more of a workout with a low level of assist when he has some extra time on his way home.
He is planning on purchasing another ebike from Rad Power Bikes for his wife so they can ride together and go on camping trips with their dog. David loves his RadWagon because “it makes everyday an adventure.”
