"People who might have known about ebikes but struggled to find one that was approachable and well balanced now have a great option."
The RadCity is a great option if you want many of the same features as the RadCity Step-Thru but in a more traditional, familiar frame style.
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 !
Love how it rides and it’s very comfortable!!
I have been enjoying my new Rad City step through and learning to use it. We live in a very hilly area, so it is a godsend. I would like to add a cage for a water bottle and rear view mirrors. Do you have any suggestions.
After riding standard bikes for many years and getting to my golden years and living in the hills. This is the best thing I did you can climb up the hills with as much effort at you want. The bikes are great!
so far good myrle woltz.
I’m enjoying my new Rad step thru more than I had imagined. It seems to go forever. We have a lot of hilly trails here near Traverse City, Michigan and with it having the “hybrid” recovery feature it seems to go on and on. Leaving the bike in mode 2 most of the time I’m cruising at around 17 mph easily, so much fun. The bike is very well balanced and sturdy. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you Rad bike for designing such a great bike. Also, the videos that you provide make it easy to assemble. My wife can’t wait to get hers.
Received bike packed beautifully. Went together with help of an assembly video smoothly. A few miles in I heard some noises from the rear wheel, an odd creaking sound. When I reached out I was told a probable cause typical of the wear in process. The fix was to have a local shop fix it or fix it myself. This is a lot of money to spend and be told the bike needs professional adjustment a few miles in. Overall a great bike, comfortable and nice to ride.
