RadMini Electric Folding Fat Bike
Was hesitant to go electric, as I had been riding my standard bike for some time, however my commute has several challenging hills and with no shower facilities at work was looking for help on the hills so I could continue to commute to work and still enjoy riding. The RAD Mini has been the perfect fit.
Everything is good so far, only got one ride in for about 10 miles. Only disappointment is that both this bike and my wife's city step through had the bent derailleur guard upon arrival with no visible damage to that part of the box . Company has to look into this, everyone reports this issue. It appears it maybe a assembly or packing issue. Otherwise very pleased with performance of the bike
I love everything about the bike……my only issue with the Mini is that is it awkward when folded.
Love the bike ... nice smooth ride ... great for the price .. nice style ... owner of radmini
I was told to get my rad mini folding bike I would have to order online and have it delivered. The showroom person assured me if I could not get it together myself I could bring it in for help. (Did not mention there was a fee). I received my bike and attempted to put it together but it did not come with everything you need a (torque wrench and bicycle grease) so I had no choice but to take it to Rad Power bike to finish the job. Super frustrating. Then I purchased the fenders and again had a very hard time putting them on but found a friend who managed to get them on. So far its been more stress than fun. I have shaved maybe 15-20 min off my morning bike commute by riding with the rad mini. Its pretty heavy and hard to get it on my car bike rack by myself.
RadMini was a birthday gift (to myself) for my 60th birthday! In 3 weeks, I’ve racked up over 250 miles. The hills I used to shy away from are now a breeze to ascend and I’m actually riding twice as far as my former bicycle fitness workout. The integrated lights and brake activated tail light are a great safety feature that I use even in daytime and not having to deal with disposable batteries to power the lights is a welcome relief. Love my RadMini!!!
I've been out 4 long rides 15+ miles, the bike is fun. Experiences I didn't care for: the front fork preload is really hard to turn, I called support & Kyle had a hard time turning it also both our fingers hurt trying, next involved installing the fenders & rear rack. The factory hardware is horrible to remove, it's like the threads aren't right either on the screws or holes, they never got loose the whole way to the last thread & getting the new hardware in was just as bad, the junk tools you gave me didn't help either. The saddle; I hate it, wish I could send it back to you & get credit. Took it off & bought another. The handle bar grips look pretty but are far from comfortable, looking for new ones. There should be caps for the Battery & Battery port to protect them during transport or storage, have to buy those also. Looks like by time I add all the upgrades, I could have purchased a better quality bike. Why don't you offer upgrade packages with accessories already installed, better seats & grips? Other than those issues I like the convenience of folding & stuffing it in the hatch back, pretty heavy for an old man like myself, it goes in before the ride a lot easier, after the ride I'm struggling.
Having a ball riding my fat tire folding bike.
Also I like being able to fold them in half to transport.
