RadMini / Rad Mini sale ends, price stays the same
« on: September 02, 2021, 07:30:09 AM »
FYI, I checked the Rad site to see if the sale on the Minis ended Sept 1 as scheduled and yes, the sale is over.

The price, however, remains at the sale price of $1,299 and seems to be the new regular price, with shipments around the end of this month into early October.   

So I expect new version(s) soon - this looks like inventory clearance to me and I bet they're feeling the heat from Lectric and other competitors in this segment.

(I hate to cross-post this, but I thought this forum section might be a better fit to attract the attention of bike gearheads)

Can anybody point me to a direct-replacement standard axle to replace the quick-release factory setup on my RadMini Step-Thru?  Twice now I've found mine had loosened up with use and the last thing I need is it possibly bouncing loose completely while riding.  IIRC, I've read that braking forces on the front fork assembly can contribute to this.  The quick-release feature isn't important to me, riding safety is.

Thanks!

General Chat / Carry bag for Rad batteries (fits like a glove!)
« on: July 11, 2021, 07:36:50 AM »
I found a reference to this on a forum post somewhere (might have even been this one) and gave it a try - if you'd like something to protect a Rad battery and make it easy to carry when off the bike, this is it!

https://amzn.to/3iKKO8r

As I'd heard, this fits current batteries like a glove, as if it were made for this purpose, right down to following the curves at the top of the battery.  Padded, well-made and sturdy with a strap handle.  Not expensive, and you might get lucky - I got mine "Used-Like New" for only US$14.95 and it looked brand new.  Highly recommended if you need something like this; you might want to snag one before Rad buys up the production and rebrands it at twice the price.   ;)

Group Rides / Quimper Peninsula, WA

I'm in PT, exploring the trails I never knew were there - happy to look into connecting with others in the area.  Older and slower than my motorcycle heyday, but not as slow now after getting the Rad Mini.

I'm thinking of ordering this carrier.  Reviews online are pretty good and the price is right, but I'm wondering how adaptable the support spacing is for the RadMini's wheelbase and tire diameter - all the reviews/photos I've found either illustrate a motorcycle or larger Rover-sized e-bike.   It's supposedly rated to 400 lb, so a 90-lb Mini should be no problem.

I think it'd work fine, but would rather discover reasons why not before ordering.

RadMini / Recommended underseat bag for RadMini StepThru 2?
« on: April 01, 2021, 02:04:10 PM »
Before I start sifting through many dozens of available underseat tool/patch/pump bags, does anybody have one on their Mini StepThru that they love?  I'm planning to swap out the stock seat for a Cloud 9 Cruiser Select saddle soon, if that makes a difference.

Thanks!
