I’m having A great time riding this Beauty 🚴
so easy to get to know. I increased my ride time and distance pleasure twice as much. I am upstate NY and use it in extreme conditions as well as pleasure reading on the Erie Canal.
This is my first ebike and, as a longtime mountain biker, I was skeptical at first. I had rented ebikes several times for commuting purposes and was unimpressed. However, then I took part in a test ride from Rad sponsored by my workplace and I fell in love! The comfort and ease with which I can get around the city now is exhilarating, and I can't wait to take my RadRover out into the mountains in the summer.
I don't give five stars because there;'s always room for improvement.
In this case the RadRover was delivered quickly and correctly, meet all my expectations for a reasonable price. It only needed Derailleur adjustment ,No big deal. Everything else was just fine. Having used it for a while now I would recommend the bike to anyone.
However before the purchase I emailed asking a few questions -- My first Comment was "HI I'm interested in your Rad Rover and have a couple of questions;"
Their response was "Can you clarify if you were interested in the RadRover or the RadRunner? Then answered first question directly and to the second which was; "I've read on your web page and other secondary reviews that some people are quite disappointed in your service and more specifically lack of communication , What kind of communication towards resolving any problems can I expect? "
they simply stated; "we are the largest ebike company in North America in terms of sales and we believe you do not get there without having great customer support and products"
So even with their weak communications I took a chance on the bike and it worked out.
This bike has been amazing! Love riding it on the snow-covered trails in Duluth. We are now considering this as our second vehicle.
I have now owned my Rad Rover for a couple of months. Ride it mostly on dirt trails. The more I ride it the more I get excited about riding it. Wow! The 4" tires really grip. I set the psi at 15 and it rolls over everything. Originally I had set it at 20 psi as suggested and thought I would need a suspension seat post it was so stiff. 15 psi took care of that and is perfect for the conditions I ride in. Perfect for me! Climbs like a goat. Hardly uses any battery. Love it!
Still on the fence? Don't be. I was there for months. Since I pulled the trigger I have had no regrets. Just do it! You won't be sorry.
When ever a purchase is made online, there's always some anxiety about the actual product that is received. A bit intimidating for the bike to arrive in a box, however, using the recommended installers (velofix) made the process super easy and I got up and riding in no time! My wife and I are so pleased with the radrover. It really has exceeded expectations. Plus, it is such a head turner. every time I take it for a spin, I catch people eyeing the bike. We love it so much that we'll probably purchase a second bike for my wife. Great move introducing the new radrover step through, because for my wife, that option makes the radrover even more appealing! To the Rad bikes team, nice work designing an incredibly aesthetic bike, simple to use, high performing and at a price point that is accessible. Cheers!
Well today is the third day of taking the bikes out - we really like everything about them - will be order a couple of basket in the future for our spring/summer events - we also got the Hollywood bike rack for our two bikes... it has worked out quite well...
I have known for a year we would buy a Rover and a City Step-Thru. I had gathered most of my research via the Rad Owner's FB Page and just had to wait for the Year-End sale to purchase. Both bikes arrived on time and undamaged, set up was a breeze and we were on a shake down cruise within an hour. What I didn't expect was that the quality was way better than I had anticipated! A few minor adjustments to the derailleur was the only thing the bikes needed. Ordering accessories as I write this, let the adventures begin!
I purchased 2 Rad Rovers for my wife and I as Christmas presents, unfortunately with the holidays and lots of snow here in Colorado we have not had any time to ride them, hopefully this weekend.
