RadCity Step-Thru Electric Commuter Bike Version 3
love it and fun !
Wonderful bikes! Sturdy, dependable, husband and I love taking evening rides. My husband has knee troubles and having a little assist with the hills is a big help.
Great experience I'm glad I did my homework and ordered a rad mini step through to
We love our RadRover Step thru Fat tire bikes . We have already put almost 200 miles on them and we have had them less than a month. Love everything about them.
Wonderful bike! Main roads to mud holes - it does it all. I'm 73 years old and this bike took fifty years off my legs, What a joy!
Couple things I would enjoy on the electronic display:
1. a clock
2. a compass
RadRunner Electric Utility Bike
The fat tires are great for our 2/3 mile long driveway before reaching the asphalt highway. Plenty of power and range. I'm too old to pedal w/o assist except going downhill. Very comfortable! Love taking it to town to pick up mail and a few groceries. Thank you for asking!
What a blast! The quality is top notch and the design is retro without being too nostalgic. The mechanics are well thought out and initiative. The online support and presents is 5-star. As a neophyte I was impressed by the step by step assembly videos to maintenance schedules. Literally from nuts to bolts. I feel secure with my support, from both online and customer support (which I haven’t had to use yet because of your excellent online presence). Choosing RAD was definitely the best fit for me. Thank you!
Love the bike! Just got my torque wrench so I adjusted all hardware to the recommended torque values. The bolts stripped out on the 18-20 Nm torque for the Handlebar. My wife’s just received her new RadRover Step-Thru and the torque recommendation in her manual is only 10 Nm, which seems tight enough. I re-torqued my handlebar bolts to 10 Nm but two of the bolts are stripped. What should I do about this? My Owner’s Manual is for the 2018 RadRover. Her’s is a 2020 Step-Thru RadRover. It seems the torque should be the same for both bikes. I used the values in my manual page 9.
Bought two RadCitys for two of my sons. I am a proud owner of the RadWagon and wanted to share the experience with them. Being a repeat customer should speak to how I feel about the bikes and the company.
These bikes have changed my life for the better. My weekly commute of about 140 miles was done in a SUV. Now it is done on a Rad.
Customer service is outstanding.
I don’t know a lot about the electric bicycle market, but I am happy to have chosen to lean into it with multiple purchases from Rad.
My wife loves it. At first she was worried the bike was to large and heavy for her to ride. But after some time and practice she feels very comfortable riding it.
What a great time I am having with this ebike and social distancing is easy. Thanks for such a great product. Love it!
Not knowing if I'd like the ebike experience, Rad was recommend many times as a good choice for someone who wants a good quality bike for the $ without over spending, and it's been a solid bike 2 years now. For the $, it's difficult to go wrong with Rad. It was a great intro machine and I recommend the brand to people who ask about the bike, which happens a lot.
I will be moving onto another brand that costs considerably more now that I know ebikes are here to stay for me, but Rad Rover gave me several years of trouble free riding and is still best bang for the $ all around, even in the highly competitive market today, and they also have great customer service and that too should be part of any buying decisions.
If a company is known for poor CS, I'd avoid it no matter how nice the bike.
Packed great, what a well built bike, easy to put together. Only problem is the head light doesn't work, check all connections, use volt meter and then call service dept. I'm 72 and ready to ride all over. There is 1000 miles of trails in Montrose, Colo. To enjoy. Will add more at I put miles on. Got to buy the extra seat, it should come standard with bike. Getter it done, miles to go.
Love my new Rad Runner. Made well, looks nice and plenty of power. The only thing that needs an improvement is the thin hard seat and no shock absorber on the seat post or forks. They come on the newer version of the Runner :-) But still a great ride. Highly recommend.
It goes without saying that cars aren’t great. They rely on fossil fuels and car culture doesn’t really like the idea of other modes of transportation. Public transit is amazing except for the current need for social distancing.
Enter the RadRunner.
Enough battery power for a ride around town, commuting to work is an absolute breeze.
I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because compared to past e-bikes I’ve owned this one feels a little underpowered, but it still does the job very well. Highly recommended especially for the price.
I love my RadRunner it is more than I expected from this bike. I bought it because I do a lot of remote fishing and I was hoping it would take the burden off my legs and it has! The battery last a long time on a charge and it has plenty of power. My only regret is that I did not buy a bike with a softer suspension, all and all it is a great bike.
Bikes are great seats too hard
I am really enjoying my RadCity. Errands that used to require my car now have me on my bike. I love the pedal assist being so flexible. This bike is a great value.
The Rad Runner is incredibly well thought out. Its easy to operate, can be modified in so many ways, and is just so much fun to ride around on. The bike fits well (I'm 5'8") and handles my commute with no problems. I have gone for 2 hour rides using pedal assist and lots of throttling, and the battery still has half a charge left (different user weight and terrain will certainly impact this, but I'm still impressed). The throttle feature is great, but steep hills will tax it quite a bit - don't expect to fly up hills at high speed. Luckily with L4 pedal assist it is almost effortless for me to pedal uphill at a good pace.
I also bought a Thule baby seat - its so easy to put on and take off. And my 2 year old absolutely loves going on rides with me.
This bike is safe, fun, and easy to use. Perfect for commuting, or someone who wants to cruise around the city. The only thing I wish this bike had is front suspension (West Seattle has some pretty rough roads), but I see the Rad Runner Plus will be equipped with that - for anyone who values comfort, I would consider spending a bit more to buy that model.
But at this price, the Rad Runner gets 5 stars, its exceeded all my expectations.
This is a great bike. Easy to use and ride. The price is excellent for the quality you get. Good job Radbikes.
My wife is only 5'1" and was having trouble reaching the ground on my RadRover, so we got her the RadRunner and she can finally stand while seated! Also, with the cargo mount built into the frame, there is almost no wobble when we put our 3 year old on the back, which makes riding with a kid much easier. We love our Rad Power Bikes and now we go on family adventures almost everyday!
I really like the bike, a minor complaint is the chain slack although in fairness that may be just me getting used to the motorized bike. I knew it would not react the same as my wife mid drive. I wrote a previous review noting that I would prefer a City Lite bike, nom building rack, lighter frame and perhaps narrower tires. Overall it is a great bike.
Before Covid my son and I test road both the Runner and the Mini. He opted to buy an Aerial Rider and was very disappointed with the quality, he ended up having to return the bike. Part of his decision to initially buy the Aerial was he did not like the Runner seat, also found the power lacking on hills and the Aerial had full suspension.
I purchased the bike for rehab after knee replacements. I had to buy another bike rad runner because my grandchildren are always using my radcity. great bikes !
