    Rolling a mini

    My "older" mini (2018) spends a lot of time folded in my Subaru Crosstrek and has been all over the country (I have a couple of other bikes that I can also get in, but the mini is the easiest). The 2018's supposedly were a little lighter. But remove the seat and battery and that cuts 8-9#'s...

    Ride1Up Roadster V2 Reviews

    Maybe everyone knows this by now, but the Roadster will later this year have a battery extender. I did reach out to them to ask if the whole extender could added if needed for longer runs AND then removed when not needed (the battery is...

    Ok so about the regen and the 0mph when coasting.

    Ummm - why do people buy this ebike? Really?

    Rad Rover handle bar end mirror suggestions/reccomendation

    ^ Agree with Graysco242. I have them on my ebikes. Seem sturdy and can be taken on and off with ease.

    RadMini4 or Sondors Fold XS ?

    I have a "old" 2018 Radmini and really like it for certain applications. It is really a very easy bike to ride - almost too easy. It fits in the back of my Subaru Crosstrek great. It's heavy but even though I'm only 155#'s - no problem lifting it in. But then I've lifted weights for over 50...

    Announced: Yamaha Civante - 28mph

    Actually the Neo 1 (which I like) is class 1. But - my question is why would Yamaha not put their PW-X2-45 motor on this bike as opposed to the older PW-SE? At 1# less in weight plus an extra level of assist. Anyone know - Yamaha dealers?

    2020 : Our Rides in Words, Photos, Videos & Maps

    This is why I like my older 2018 Radmini (I have other ebikes as well). And yes I actually fold it and take it with me - either in my Jeep for forest roads or in my Crosstrek. South Beach (Newport, OR) - 6 miles of uninterrupted beach riding. Oregon's beaches are all public - NO private...

    Protective Bike Gloves

    Those RDX's should last forever. I've lifted for well over 50 years and still have some 20+ year old Harbinger's. You almost can't wear out the palms. And I have used them with my bikes a couple of times - work fine. Won't give you as much knuckle protection as a motorcycle glove (Freetoo...

    Prison Blues jeans. Made by inmates at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institute in Pendleton, OR. I think they even source the 14.75 oz denim from the USA. Little over $30.

    Powerful hill climber at the $1500 price point?

    Respectfully disagree with rich c. I have a 2018 Radmini - so can't speak to the Rover. But I understand your terrain and the type of roads you're talking about. I live in Oregon, and the mini is always folded in the back of my Jeep and I ride it mostly on remote forest roads in the Cascades...

    Buying from local store vs ordering online

    Actually lenajc, Austin gives you a good option for RadPower. Per their website they have a Rad mobile service and soon will have a couple of "pop up" stores with a Rad showroom this summer. So service should be available directly from them. There is a recent Rad City review here on EBR. I...

    Looking for foldable ebikes for family...

    Have you checked out Tern? Solid company, good warranty and a pretty good dealer network (they have a dealer locator on their website). Also some models (both electric and non) are available thru REI.

    2018 Rad mini rear rim cracked

    Actually Bike Jeffery I'd call Rad. They may surprise you on the cost. I bought a whole front wheel assembly for my 2018 Radmini including the tire/tube that I felt was a fair price.

    Choosing Between the Rad Rover Step Through or Rad City Step Through

    Gordon71 fyi - In Arcadia National Park - Class 1 only, according to their site. And they have signs stating no class 2 or 3 Ebikes. They also seem to have dropped the speed limit for all bikes to 20 mph (from 25).

    20x4 Tires

    You know Cal000, in some ways I actually prefer the lower profile of Kraze for street/bikeway riding. IMO, the larger knobbies seem a little overboard for use on bikeways. The Kraze much less so - more of a "regular" bike look. I assume less "chatty" road noise as well. For me I want/need...
