I'm really struggling with trying to decide whether to get the mid-step radmission or the high step. I want to make sure I get the right size, because I cant afford to return it if its not.


I'm almost exactly 5'10. My bike inseam (not pants inseam) is around 32-33 inches.


Does anybody here with similar measurements or taller ride the mid-step radmission with the seat high enough for full leg extension while pedalling? Is it comfortable?

Thanks. Can I ask if you have long legs and short arms too?

I'm a bit worried because I will have to put the seat up really high to get proper pedal extension, and I dont want to have to lean very far due to my short arms. Or hit the handlebars with my knees.

Its a really good bike. However I will tell you this, if you have crazy hills in your area, you might want something a bit more powerful, the 500w motor doesn't do so well on hills. But this is the only ebike I have ever tried. I come from a world of DIY electric skateboards, my board has 10kw worth of power under in, so I might be a bit sqewed in my perception of what a powerful and a not so powerful ebike it.

Thanks. I didnt think too much about the power, but luckily we dont have many hills here. Its mainly flat.

You might check to see if a Bolton ebike upgrade might work , it works for most of the prior Rad bikes.

Although the motor is rated “nominally” 500w you can generally run them higher .on the LCD u can set the limit $219 is a bargain.
