"It is no small wonder there are so many of these running around for both commuters and companies alike."
The RadCity Step-Thru is a great option if you want many of the same features as the RadCity but with a much lower stand over height.
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!
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.
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.
Received the bike a month ago. Easy assembly and the controls and display are extremely rider friendly.
Great quality and a blast to ride. So many friends and neighbors are interested in a Rad as well. Communication from the company was excellent during the purchase and buying process too. There are also several You Tube clips about additional bike features and regular maintenance information. I'm five star happy I purchased a Rad !
Top Shelf! The quality and engineering of this E-bike is way beyond the pricing for this unit! I'am 69 years old now and have had a few new bicycles in that time period. I've always had a passion for two wheelers, but being older now limits my ability to go physically long periods. How ever with this E-bike, my horizons and time in the saddle have been extended. This unit brings back the endurance and joy of freedom one experiences when first exposed to multi-speed bicycles. I cannot say enough of the pure joy I get when riding this Rad-City 4! I'am hoping the electronics and mechanicals, (short of normal ware) will last into the future and be defect free, but only time can determine how long? So far, I'am impressed to the point of considering another E-bike for the Misses and hoping she'll decide "yes"! Anyway, you've got yourself a winner in my eyes, stay the course, keep exploring ideas, stay strong, stay safe, and God Bless! "Let's Roll", Robert VM
I had one of the first iterations of an electric bicycle, and the improvements that exist in Rad bicycles is awesome. The RadCity is very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. I have suddenly become an avid bicyclist and am out every day enjoying the sophistication of the RadCity. It is well built, solid, and very affordable. I see no reason to purchase more expensive bikes. The RadCity has it all. Love it. Thanks RAD
I do like my Rad City 4 bike. A solid built bike. Only two comments I would suggest for Rad City. First is the seat. You should offer a beach style seat with the springs under the seat for a smoother ride or a least offer one on your accessories list. I had to buy an after market seat. Also I was wanting to get a small basket for the back of my Rad City 4. I can see you are sold out and when I talked with your sales dept. they didn't know when you would be getting any in. So I will wait and keep checking. But I do like my Rad City 4. Thanks!
I recently purchased a RadCity Electric Commuter Bike Version 4 and I am very happy with it. My wife had the RadCity Step Through and she loved it. I had a different bike that was not nearly as nice as hers so I sold it and bought the RadCity bike. I couldn’t be happier! I definitely made the right decision.
Love the new RADCity. Battery just keeps going. It’s rock solid and very comfortable to ride. Went together easily. Torque wrench would be nice to have. I had to adjust the derailor A little But other than that perfect. Breaks are great. FYI, it’s a big bike. If you have less than 30inch inseam look at other models.
