That is a cool story Russ.

Fantastic!! 😻 You get all the fun toys. Do you have as much fun on it as riding your jet ski? I’d think you get more exercise and could do it more often.
I mountain bike a couple times a week and love it. I can ride a few miles from my home and be on the trails. So much nicer than road biking.
Yea, this is more effort even if it is e-assist....and, I desperately need that. But, once things heat up I will def. be out on the jetski once a weekend. Cold and windy now but there are so many areas I want to ride that are almost moto-required but now I can with this bike. The folks over a RAD have really put together a sweet brand for value.
A walk gear is something I did not consider but it sounds very comforting. I don’t ride up many steep hills but you never know.
RAD on dudes!
I was chatting to my brother tonight and he has been given 2 bikes to take folks on test rides.
He has always been a competitive MTB racer, but recently he's had a few leg and knee problems.
He says this is the most fun he's had in years.
great looking steeds....those are not e-bikes are they?
How’s it going, vegasjetskiebiker? Keeping yourself virus free?
Hey Dude...bummed I had to cancel my Netherlands trip...had a good model lined up to shoot out at some tulip farms. Gonna do a plan B and head out to Santa Fe and then down to Big Bend National Park. Never been to Big Bend....I know a bunch of ADV riders have posted up some great road trips down through there.
check ahead—I read New Mexico has closed all state park campgrounds to overnighters (!). Apparently, the Campendium app is keeping track of the state parks that are being closed all around the country.
Yep pedal assist, you only get e-power if you are physically peddling up to 25Kph , over 25Kph it turns off, he's loving these out riding about 2 hours longer than he can on a conventional bike while he's healing.
Full range here.
I think these mainstream OEM e-bikes are super cool but unfortunately, their price points are not consumer-justified. Many of these MTB e-bikes run $5K-$15K.....so, for SERIOUS cash-laden riders they are the sweet spot.
The RAD bikes or more consumer-priced bikes are making it attractive for just the average joes that either find or want to re-visit the joys of just riding a bike without it having to be an athletic event. I fall in that latter category.
The other experience I have is how with any other bike you are aware/obsessed with bike weight and adding any farkles that would add to such weight. Even in my triathlon days, I was still a 200lb guy so gravity sucks on the climb.
Now I have added racks, and cup holders, and light mounts and cell mounts and locks, etc and I ne'er have a worry about bike weight. I think my bike must easily weigh over 60lbs now. hahahahah But, with a twist of the throttle and PA2 or PA3 (out of 5), I don't struggle with moderate flat climbs and on the downhills with approximately 350lbs of aggregate weight my momentum is continuous.
My beast of a bike will not win any Svelte Bike Awards like that beautiful Rocky Mountain but the RAD is actively riding and not just desktop wallpaper. :)
