I' ve bought a bike rear rack, which also fits for radmini. The point is that this rear rack is not expensive. Easy to install. You guys should try it. https://onway-ebikes.com/collections/accessories/products/bike-rear-rack

I've seen that rack and it seems like a good option. May try it out myself!

I installed one on my wife's mini step through.  Fit perfectly, but did have to get an extension cable from Rad for the tail light.

Ordering the rack is sort of a strange process wherein you'll get an e-mail about a week after you place your order asking what make and model bike you have so they can be sure they're not going to send you something you'll be returning.   Then they send the rack.

Any one try the Topeak back rack for the RAD Mini ST2?

I ordered this one from Amazon https://amzn.to/3vMptB7

Found if I turned the lower legs 90 it would fit my wife's mini step through, but the rack was so high above the rear fender it looked odd, and so I returned it.  It may be made for fat tire bikes but not those with 20" wheels.

IN STOCK (or at least they were 2-weeks ago), I ordered/received two in the past 5 days. (i.e. one orange and one black for our two new RadMini(s), ST-2 and 4

Got my rear rack for the 'mini today. Boring black but better than no rear rack. Glad no porch pirates were creeping around today because FedEx just dumped it on the porch along with my extra 'Runner tire!

I don't know if any of you know about Genuine Buddy scooters and their "awesome" rear racks by Prima, but I swear the Rad Mini rear rack came from the same factory. The 'Mini rack fit in the end but it was not welded straight or even. Luckily I didn't have to force/bend anything to make it fit so I don't foresee any cracking on the rack or bolts pulling out. The 'Mini rack works as advertised so its a few steps above a Buddy rear rack in weld quality.

I also installed the Topeak Uni super Tourist Fat Rack on my mini ST 2. There is indeed a big space between   The fender and the rack. But I use this space to install a small bag for my tools. Love the setting.
