Now we know the deal on Rads for Black Friday: $200 off every model except the Runner ($100 off). Existing customers get 25% off accessories. Interestingly these prices are available immediately.

Rad Modifications / Re: Mirror for Rad Power Bikes (Mirrycle review)
« Last post by 0xGene on November 11, 2019, 11:56:32 PM »
Love mirrcycles, have put them on every bike I've owned.

I mounted mine a lil differently though - the handlebars are wide enough, and I'd rather have the mirror be forward a little more.

General Chat / Rad Power Bikes Black Friday 2019
« Last post by Ryan on November 09, 2019, 03:01:04 PM »
I'm really curious what others are planning to do for Black Friday. Depending on the sale do you plan to buy a 2019 model or wait for 2020? I'm considering a Runner just depending on the price point but might hold off for now to see what 2020 brings. As soon as I know what the deals are I'll post them in this thread.

General Chat / Re: Rad Power Bikes battery storage over a winter

I haven't seen this specified but I think room temperature is probably best. They recommend charging when the ambient temperature is 50-77. And then make sure it's in a dry place. We leave ours on the main floor of our house instead of the basement and also away from anywhere where it might see direct sunlight.

Thanks for the tip, Ryan. How about the optimal temperatures for storage?

Just a reminder for us folks in the colder regions who don't plan to ride their bike over the winter months - keep your battery at around 75% charged. More details here: https://radpowerbikes.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002717094-Long-Term-Battery-Storage

Really enjoyed your review. It's kind of crazy to see what putting more power to the motor can do to the Rad Runner 8)

General Chat / Re: 16 mile one way commute

It's possible, but you'd definitely be pedaling to help. To be safe I'd probably bring the charger to charge it up during the day. My wife goes 7 miles each way to work with some really steep hills no problem.

I watched a review today that talked about how the Rad Runner isn't as conducive to pedaling with the scooter style. Nothing wrong with that, but if comfort is a concern and you really want to get those legs going you may want to look at the other models. Battery is rated for 800 cycles so no worries there.  Not sure if you can override the max speed on the Runner without a different screen and maybe even controller. It is possible to override the other models with the Rad LCD to around 25 if I'm not mistaken. To be honest 20 is plenty fast and I think you risk some liability overriding it if you were to get in an accident. Rad sells bikes that meet current regulations.

Let me know if you have any other questions! We love our Rad and commuting on it is a blast - you won't regret starting your day on an ebike.

I had these cool stickers made up and am reserving them for the largest contributors to the forum. In November I'll look at who has the most posts and get in touch to send you a free sticker. I realize this is a small thing and it's *only* a sticker but I truly appreciate those that have participated on the forum and I look forward to growing the community. Ride Rad!
