I bought my Radwagon for exercise and for running errands. Yesterday I made it to the grocery store and today the pharmacy. I couldn't decide on buying the bike without seeing it perform since I was worried how it would do on the hills. I shouldn't have worried. I've been riding 6 or 7 miles each morning and am having a lot of fun. I have my gears set on 1 and 6 and have been using numbers 2 and 3 on power assist. I can run everywhere I need to ride on these settings. I am very happy I bought this bike. The engineering took a lot of thought and the performance exceeds my expectations. I sat on the fence for 3 months with this purchase and am now so happy I bit the bullet on this one.
