"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 have waited for three years to get a Rad bike. It was worth the wait. I have had some problems but Rad has been a big help. I would love to give my bike a 5 star but the mileage has been a disappointment.
My RAD is all that is advertised and more. It is just the right height, and it is not too cumbersome. I bought another ebike last summer because I didn’t know about RAD bikes. This year, a friend of mine and I bought a RadCity Step-Thru and a RadRover. We are both very pleased with our new bikes. The support we’ve received has been especially outstanding. Neither of us would hesitate in buying another RAD.

This is my first ebike and I am thrilled it is a Rad City; the technology is amazing, the bike itself is beautiful and extremely easy to operate. I ride to work 24 miles round trip and only use about 3 bars of the battery. I recommend this bike to everyone.
I also want to thank the teams at Rad City for getting my bike to me promptly and answering all my questions. I find it extremely important to have a great customer service.
Love this bike. Excellent components and technology for a reasonable price. Makes riding a pleasure and allows riders of different physical capability to ride together.
There are a lot of e-bikes out there, but I'm glad I purchased the Rad City Step Thru as my first e-bike. It has a lot of features that are add-on on other bikes. For the base price plus the assembly cost, it was reasonably priced for a high quality, name brand e-bike.
The online customer service was very responsive and answered all my questions before I purchased the bike. The bike was assembled and picked up at the Sacramento Mobile location. The guys there were very helpful in teaching me about the bike before taking possession of it.
I highly recommend this bike.

When you have bad knees the PAS is really great when traveling an incline or hill.
My partner and I both have RAD bikes. We ride up to 15-20 miles per day. It’s a great way, when you are over the hill (71 and 72 year old Baby Boomers) to challenge the hill with plenty of power. We live in a very hilly area and use our Pedal Assists to meet that challenge. The RAD bikes have not only increased adventure in our relationship but given us a new way to get much needed excercise and meet the neighbors!
At early 70’s what an outstanding pleasure to have found the Rad City Step Through 3..Couldn’t be more pleased. What super machines for both of us. Living in a hilly community plenty of power. We are not new to bikes, just new to Rad. Excellent design and quality materials. Glad we chose Rad, best bang for the buck we could have found. Steve & Sara W.
I love it! I have driven my first 100 miles and it is fantastic. I always loved biking, but in Northern NJ, there are so many tough climbs. I find that I am comfortable going so much further. I can make it up the biggest hills in my area, and I don't have to kill myself. I am exercising more and getting out to enjoy the fresh air and seeing people.
