We didn't think we'd ever actually need to use the formula for calculating combinations that we learned in high school algebra.

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.
Proprietary Passenger Package
Other ebikes with bench-style seats have one thing in common: they offer zero means for the rider to adjust the height of their seat. This means nearly everyone is always pedaling in a poor riding position.
We are changing that in a big way. The RadRunner is the very first ebike or scooter to have an adjustable driver's seat that can either be completely flush with the passenger's seat or adjusted higher like a standard bike.
Keep the seat low so your passenger can snuggle up close or raise the seat up to get proper leg extension while pedaling. You do you.
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 lbs, it's one of the lightest and most energy-dense packs on any electric bike.

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.

just plain a nice bike. and a good deal . every one will ask and say they like it. and it is so great for trips to the grocery store i love the bike i really do. brent eagleberger.
Looking forward to riding this Beast
Worth every penny! Bought for my wife so she can take our daughter around for short trips or leisure, they both love it. I love the bike too, regret no getting one myself.
Ditched the car! ?? ?? Actually I let my fianceé drive it and I commute to and from work everyday. No problems at all! Love my RR1! Thank you RadRunner
Love my Rad Runner. Only wish is that I wish it were lighter.
From our home to town takes 10 minutes on the Radrunner, We share the Runner in our family. Our small town becomes over crowed on weekends. Having the Runner has fixed the problem of searching for a parking spot with our car. It carry's a surf board 3 miles, to surf. We carry groceries in a front basket and get back home before the ice cream melts. Our town has many bumpy dirt roads, I did add the plush seat and the shock absorbing seat post. I'm 64, and need the cushion. The younger rider had no problem with the dirt road bumps. We'd rather jump on the Runner to get an item at the hardware store, grocery store, pick up the mail, or drop something off. No more searching for a parking spot in the car. The Runner makes it fun to ride into town, even after a hour drive home in the car from work. It keeps a Rad smile on our faces
I have had asthma all my life and it has limited my choices for physical activities. I have found the answer with Rad bikes! I can now participate in more outdoor excursions with my friends and family! I feel free! Thanks Rad power bikes!??
Starting to hear a humming noise from motor.
The bike has been great so far. I use it as a daily commuter in Portland Oregon. I average around 16 miles a day, 5 days a week. I have been charging the battery every day due to the fact that my morning ride takes me up a large hill that sucks a lot of the life out of the batter. I've already had to change a flat rear tire due to running over a razor blade that was deliberately placed in the bike lane. I really enjoy staying off of mass transit and saving on my commute time. I'm 44 and have a bad knee that will need to be replaced eventually, so avoiding pumping up a hill every day the electric bike is quite helpful and painless. I"m curious about self maintenance on this bike and will certainly find out how tune ups go.
I've had the bike for a few months and I've been using it to get to work, and it works really well for that. I'd get there and back with ease. Sadly just this week it rained really hard. The rain somehow seeped into the LED display and fried it making the bike's electronics unusable. I had to pedal back after a 12 hr shift and it wasn't fun. All that was keeping it from the rain was a sticker, and that was really unfortunate. I had to pay 111 for a new display yesterday. If you do get a Radrunner just beware of the rain, maybe look at the other models to be safe unless you like it and get a display upgrade. It's a great bike though! So don't let that keep you
