What to Measure
Your “real inseam” -- or inside leg length -- is the distance between your body where it sits on your bike saddle and the ground.
This will typically be an inch or two longer than the length of your trousers, but you’ll want to measure to be sure.
You’ll use this number on the chart to get a feel for how the different models will fit you.
How to Measure
Gather the tools needed:
- Medium-width hardcover book
- Tape measure
- A wall you can stand against
- A trusted friend or relative
Wearing your regular riding shoes and with your back to the wall, stand with your feet spread so there is about 7 inches between them - this is about the distance apart your feet would be when straddling a bike with your feet on the ground (standover height).
Place a hardcover book against the wall with the spine of the book facing upward. Slide the book upwards towards your groin until it is solidly against your body. This may be a bit awkward, but is way more comfortable -- and safer! -- than trying to ride a bike that is too big.
If you have a buddy helping you, get them to measure from the floor to the top of the book spine while you hold the book in place. If you’re going it alone, carefully hold the book in place and measure from the ground to the top of the book spine.
A fuel gauge for your electrons.
Pedal Assist Level
The higher the number, the more the motor will boost you when you pedal.
5V, 1 Amp port to charge your phone or portable electronics on the go.
Calculate how many miles you didn't drive this year and how much money you saved on gas.
Can be set to current speed, max speed, or average speed.

The Rad Battery Pack
With over a decade of designing and building ebikes under our belts, we know that a high-capacity battery like this isn’t something you cheap out on. We designed and built our batteries using genuine Samsung 35E cells, which are some of the most energy-dense and reliable lithium-ion cells on the market today. These cells have allowed us to build an overall better battery, and at only 7.7 lb, it's one of the lightest and most energy-dense packs on any electric bike.

Compact, Discreet, Maintenance-Free Hub Motor
With 750W and 80 Nm of torque at your disposal, this Bafang geared hub motor is what is going to help power you up steep inclines and get you up to top speed quickly from a dead stop, all while remaining quiet and inconspicuous. These kinds of numbers aren't even found on some of the most expensive mid drive systems out there, so prepare to outperform and outclass everyone you see on the road.

"The words 'comfort' and 'fun' rarely go hand in hand, much like 'inexpensive' and 'quality'. The RadRover manages to check off all those boxes which is no small feat."
Looking for something more accessible?
The RadRover Step-Thru 1 is a great option if you want many of the same features as the RadRover but with a much lower stand over height.
Generally pleased with the RadRover 5 and have ridden over 100 miles a week since it arrived. Assembly was easy, especially after having watched the company's YouTube assembly video before the bike arrived. I wouldn't recommend the bike to anyone under 6 feet tall or persons not in strong physical condition as the bike is very heavy at 69 pounds. It is useful to give the throttle a twist from a stopped position to quickly gain balance; otherwise because of the bike's heavy weight it is difficult to get going by just pedaling. The Kenda Juggernaut rear tire was punctured the first week by a small twig and the inner tube needed to be replaced for $29 plus $10 labor. The company now informs of a manufacturing defect in the stem explaining the handlebars and front fork might become decoupled resulting in loss of control. Free replacement parts are being sent and the company will pay the local bike shop to perform required service. Hidden menu permits raising the factory-set top speed to 40 kph (~25 mph) and know that +20 mph seems really fast on this bike. The nubby all-terrain tires are predictably noisy but I expect they will serve well into early Minnesota snow cover. The bike is fun to ride. I look forward to going out everyday. Get some extra blinking lights and always wear a helmet.
This is a great bike and I’m very pleased with it!
Both my wife and I love our bikes. It's fun and good exercise at the same time.
Rides great in the sand that is closer to the water. Not so good in deep sand or dunes. We rode on the beach for 5 miles North to Newport,OR and had lunch at the Rogue Brewery, it was a wonderful day. 10 miles round trip. We also went 4 miles S on the beach down to Seal Rock, for 8 miles RT on the beach. And my 87 pound dog who is on a diet lost 6 pounds on vacation running alongside of us this month on all of our adventures.
Way of the future!Absolutely satisfied more than I expected a lot better than my gas powered bicycles
Great bike, goes everywhere, plenty of power with a forever battery.
Love the bike but I would recommend a larger and more comfortable seat
Puts the joy back into riding. You have the choice to put as much effort as you want. Perfect ride in all terrain, great battery power haven’t been able to kill it yet even all day on mountainous trail highly recommend.
I live in a fairly remote area. Not much access to bike shops.
I wish I could have sat on the bike and also looked at other models. I have ridden 10-12 speed bikes all my life. I am 6ft tall. I find it awkward to get on the bike. Over time I will probably figure out the best body mechanics. So if you could tell prospective buyers where they could see the various models would be a good idea.
