Your “real inseam” -- or inside leg length -- is the distance between your body where it sits on your bike saddle and the ground.
This will typically be an inch or two longer than the length of your trousers, but you’ll want to measure to be sure.
You’ll use this number on the chart to get a feel for how the different models will fit you.
Gather the tools needed:
Wearing your regular riding shoes and with your back to the wall, stand with your feet spread so there is about 7 inches between them - this is about the distance apart your feet would be when straddling a bike with your feet on the ground (standover height).
Place a hardcover book against the wall with the spine of the book facing upward. Slide the book upwards towards your groin until it is solidly against your body. This may be a bit awkward, but is way more comfortable -- and safer! -- than trying to ride a bike that is too big.
If you have a buddy helping you, get them to measure from the floor to the top of the book spine while you hold the book in place. If you’re going it alone, carefully hold the book in place and measure from the ground to the top of the book spine.
Made from a layer of aramid and ceramic particles inside the tire under the tread, the Kenda K-Shield integrated tire liner is a line of defense designed to provide extra protection against punctures from thorns, glass, and other small materials.

The coolest bike ever!!!! We love our bikes. Excellent investment!
Assembly was tedious, because of my big hands, but fairly straightforward. You should advise customers to have diagonal wire cutters on hand to get through all the zip ties. I think you could also have gotten away with a single speed belt drive.
Shipped w no mirrors. Looking all over to find mirrors that fit the bike
I'm not quite sure where to begin with this review, there are so many great things to say. We got the RadWagon to test and review, and I was excited to try it, as it was my first E-bike to try, and I was just completely blown away with the difference that it makes. It's almost like having a motorcycle without any of the negativity. You get the full biking experience as much as you would like, but the E-Assist motor is like a workhorse. You can easily go up to 20 mph on flat surfaces on the motor alone, and with a little pedaling on the hills you can keep the speed up. The thing that got me really excited though about this bike is the cargo and seating capacity. This is the first bike I have ever ridden where I could honestly say that I didn't really feel like I needed a car. I could run my errands, do some shopping, pick up packages, and get to places in just about as much time as driving since I don't have to content with LA traffic. Riding up and down the LA hills is super easy, and I could just keep going.
I can't wait to try the other bikes in the lineup for the kids and a bit of trail riding. Well done Rad Power Bikes, such a great product!
Added Cargo Bike to my preexisting bicycling to all but eliminate need for car. Still bicycle traditionally, use my cargo bike for work, store, errands, meetings, etc. It has become my primary transportation. Plenty of range and speed. Added baskets to front and back for cargo. I ABSOLUTELY RECCOMEND IT! But be prepared for questions and gazing everywhere you go.
I’ve debated getting this bike for years. I live in a very bike friendly area with many trail systems. My 7 year old son doesn’t have any interest in learning to ride a bike, but really enjoys being outside and adventuring. I bought this bike so that I could take my 7 year old on the trails with me, and use the pedal assist to get over some elevation without exhaustion. It was between the radwagon and the rad runner. Just because I enjoy the look of the rad runner more. BUT glad I got the radwagon as the rad runner is only a 1 speed and I wanted to actually be able to bike without pedal assist to get a workout in. Can’t wait for long summer rides in a couple of months!
I am 65 and have not done any extensive physical exercise for years. While I am basically in good health I have decided to get out more often into the outdoors. The RadWagon Electric Cargo bike has been a godsend! I enjoy my rides now without the high impact of going up steep hills and having to walk my old bicycle up! As I get in better shape from all my riding I will use the power assist less and less....but I will always enjoy the outdoor riding now that I have been blessed with your wonderful Power bike...bought another one just to ride with friends.

She even asked ME to go for a bike ride this weekend.
Real happy so far. been riding to work and all around to stores and just wandering. Hauls kids to school no problem. No complaints.
Best cargo bike out there.
