I have 2 of these bikes and they are very good quality for the price. Check out the Facebook group if you have questions.

EBike are a blast to ride. Check out a rental place.

These are good prices on these bikes. About as good as it gets, and they're already about the best value for electric bikes. I had a Rad Wagon and it was good quality, but I ended up selling due to a couple reasons though.
First, You aren't supposed to use an assist power setting over 3 on hills (on a scale of 1-5). It is apparently too hard on the motor to use higher and it will burn the motor out. I live on a steep hill and basically bought the Rad Wagon to get me up the hill. On 3 you are still working really hard on the hills, especially if you have a kid or two on the back. This was not clear before I bought it, but there's a pretty clear warning once you open the box.
Second is that the assist works by giving a pulse of power every time the pedals make a rotation. It's not about the amount of force you are putting in to the pedals. I personally didn't like how this worked. If it's flat or downhill I am perfectly capable of propelling the bike and want to do it mostly myself. I was basically looking for it to even out my effort (flatten the hills) and it didn't have that effect. I want to operate at 50% all the time, but the way these bikes work it was more like 90% on hills and 10% on flat.
Also, there are 34 states they collect tax. That's most states with sales tax. That's not a handful.

I almost bought one of these last Black Friday and ended up putting it off until Cyber Monday only to find out they were sold out. I waited all year to buy one during this sale. Place my order for a RadCity a few hours ago. I'm expecting this to significantly speed up my flat 25 mile round trip commute, which should encourage me to drive less often.

I wanted to push this thread up.

Just placed my order minutes ago with a Radwagon. I originally wanted the new Radrunner. After tested it out at a showroom in San Francisco, I decided that bike feels too heavy.

I also bought the caboose for hauling kids Smilie I used a referral link to save $50 on top of $1,299 (radwagon) + $199 (Caboose). Total is $1,578.32 after CA taxes.

If you are a new customer, you can also get $50 off your rad bike purchase. PM me if you need one.

Both my Radwagon and the Caboose have been shipped. I placed my order yesterday. Even though the website says RadWagon is on backordered.
