    RadMini Step Thru for 5'2"

    I just lift them into the back of my KIA Sorento. A ramp sounds nice, but then I'm not sure how I'd fold them when they got to the top of the ramp. Here's a link to the forum discussion where I put the pictures of them in the back of the car...

    RadMini Step Thru for 5'2"

    She says it's fine since she doesn't pick it up. I'm the one who folds, loads, unloads and unfolds when we take it in the car. I find it heavy, but manageable. When we're just riding and parking, the weight doesn't matter much because the motor more than makes up for the weight.

    RadMini Step Thru for 5'2"

    Answering my own question now since we bought the RadMini Step-Thru for my wife. It fits great, and she seems very happy with how everything fits, but says she's still getting used to the seat. She acknowledges that it's probably just because she's not used to sitting on a bicycle seat for...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    RAD provided the replacement parts (two derailleur hangers & bash guards plus one front disc brake) and I've installed them, so we're good to go. It was all pretty easy to do using YouTube videos as a guide. The only hiccup was when I accidentally cut the good rear brake cable to the RadMini...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Bikes arrived today. Unfortunately, FedEx managed to bang them up pretty badly. The RadMini and RadMini Step-Thru derailleur guards were smashed in along with the derailleurs. The RadMini Step-Thru front brake disc was bent and the shift controller was mangled. Rad Support was apologetic and...

    I'm planning on it -- totally agree about the tie downs too!

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Inspired by a video showing two RadMinis fitting in an SUV (thanks E-Bike Explorers on YouTube), I pulled the trigger and ordered the RadMini and RadMini Step-Thru. If it doesn't fit in the SUV or feels too small, I'll sell the RadMini and get a RadRover. Now, the wait begins. Thanks again to...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Thanks Cayjak -- This morning I was thinking I had it all figured out and put a RadMini and RadMini ST in my shopping cart. Then I watched more videos and read your post. Not being able to fit two RadMinis in my SUV would be disappointing. Now I'm conflicted again. The RadRover seems more...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    That's an interesting idea too. We usually travel light so space in the car isn't an issue, but if we needed it, the platform cargo rack would have all the advantages you outlined as well as being a bit stealthy. I doubt most people would expect the tarp-covered shape of two folding e-bikes to...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Thanks for the added perspective! I'm a little younger, and probably not as wise, so I'm not yet scared of wrangling two seventy pound folders into the back of my vehicle. We'll have to see if that changes when I actually do it. Your hitch-mounted aluminum motorcycle carrier sounds like a...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions about the advantages of the Minis inside the SUV instead of the rack & bigger bikes. I really like the idea of not having to deal with the install / uninstall / storage / bike-prep and visibility issues of the rack. It all points to starting with a RadMini...

    Two RadMinis in SUV or on a Rack

    Hi EBR Rad Power Folks! We've cleaned out the garage to make space for two Rad Power bikes and are now wondering whether to get a pair of RadMinis (Step-Thru and normal) in hopes we could get them both into our KIA Sorento with the seats down, or get the RadMini Step-Thru and a RadRover...

    RadMini Step Thru for 5'2"

    Do any of you have good or bad experiences to relate regarding the RadMini Step-Thru for a shorter person? I'm looking for a bike for my wife who is ~5'2" with 28.5" inseam. I'm a little worried about the height of the handlebars and distance from the right hand grip to the gear shift lever...
