My wife hasen’t had much time getting used to it , at first she was very intimidated, but we spent the weekend in our motorhome and did a lot of riding, she is getting more confident now and becoming comfortable
Very solid feeling ride. First 100 miles have gotten very comfortable with using assist levels, good disk brakes, limited throttle at start up, seat & handlebar adjustment, etc. Exceptionally comfortable and secure ride. No mechanical issues. Added under seat bag, throttle thumb control and rear Rad rack.
Love it have not ridden it yet still winter her and to much salt I did ride in my heated garage can’t wait to hit the road with it
Only have 10 miles. Keep in mind the phrase “only get one chance to make a first impression “. Y’all knocked it out of the park. Fit and finish awesome!! Ride smooth and electronics perform beautifully. Every ride draws admiration. With your referral program , If just some buy I’ll have start on our second one!!
Thx for a quality product!!
I LOVE my rad mini. It is more than I could have hoped for. They didn’t offer the step thru when I got mine and it is hard to throw my leg over, but I make I work. The seat is terribly uncomfortable but other than that it is near perfect!!!!!
Rides great, a little heavy and hard to fold.
The bike is wonderful. The only problem is your feet can slip off the pedal to easy. My foot slipped off the pedal and I crashed on my second ride. Three broke toes and 2 broken ribs. I will replace the pedals on the bike but other than that I live it.
The bike was delivered on time and without any damage. After watching the video on line it was easy to put together. I live in Minnesota so the bike is parked in my living room until it is warm enough outside to ride it. Think Spring!
Historically, I've been a very casual bike rider and wanted an electric bike so I could go longer distances in shorter times and ditch my car. I'm having so much fun on my RadMini. I've been using it to ride to the movie theater, grocery store, and work. I love not dealing with traffic and taking trails to see more trees and the creek along the way. The throttle is great for getting a quick assist on take off and the peddle assist is perfect for balancing exercise with the speed of the motor.
I did a bunch of research before I chose the RadMini. The RadMini was the right balance between features, price, and maintainability. I felt like Rad Power Bikes will be around for a while and that I'd be able to get replacement parts when I need them. I like that they've standardized on a battery and that I can order anything I need through their web site. You can get a cheaper e-bike, yes, but it won't come with the level of support or replacement parts you get with Rad. I also looked at more expensive bikes, but I didn't see any compelling reason to buy one over the Rad.
The one issue I've had with the RadMini was finding a Panieer bag to fit my bike. I bought the rear rack from Rad, but did not like their bag option. So after ordering a bag from Amazon, I came to discover that Rad's rear rack pipe diameter is much larger (~20mm) than common rear racks. So most bags you can order will not fit. I wound up getting an Ortlier bag, which was quite expensive, as well as their attachment kit for e-bikes. I think you can buy a more standard rack to fit on Rad's bikes, but I didn't try that since I'd already installed Rad's rack. Otherwise, I've been very happy with my purchase.
Finally, I chose the RadMini Step-Thru over other Rad models because 1) I really like the look of it, and 2) I like the foldability so that I could transport it more easily when needed.
The RadMini has really brought a great change into my life and highly recommend it if you're ...
We've had a great time with these bikes. I'm very happy with our purchase. They're built well and have several useful options available. I was a little disappointing with the change to the thinner rim and tires with the 2020 model compared to last years model. We ride them in the desert and come across loose sand quite a bit and I think the wider tires would have been better for us. I did replace the tires on mine with a set of Krusades and it did help. Still, they're fantastic E-bikes and they've enabled us to get out and explore our surroundings in a way we couldn't have before. Thanks Rad Power Bikes!
