Five Surprising Uses for a RadMini

One of our favorite things about the RadMini is just how versatile it is. With a robust hinge that lets it fold in for easy storage and fold out when you’re ready for fun, it’s no wonder it’s been called “the Swiss Army knife of the fat tire ebike world” by the folks at Electrek.

That benefit isn’t lost on its riders. Loads of them have shared their stories about how this little rugged space-saver has helped them in some pretty clever ways.

On-Demand Roadside Assistance

When you head out for a long road trip, the RadMini can be a lifesaver. After all, if you suddenly find yourself out of fuel, would you rather make that long trek to the gas station by foot or grab your trusty folding ebike from the back of your RV?

But that’s not the only situation where a RadMini can help keep you on the move. When Rad Rider Woody D. had to take his car to the shop, he discovered the perfect solution for getting back home.

“I folded my bike up, threw it in the back, dropped the car off, and rode home,” he wrote in his five-star review. “The thing is a rolling multi-tool!”

Gotta say, that beats drinking stale coffee while waiting around a service center lobby.


Your Trusty First Mate

Are you the seafaring type? The RadMini is a big hit with sailors since it stores easily below deck and can be taken out when it’s time to lay anchor.

“Boating brings us to many outstanding places and our RadMinis expand our exploration in a perfect way,” wrote Rad Rider Matthew L.

“My husband and I each have one to use while we are cruising the Great Loop,” according to Cynthia L. “The folding feature makes it easier to stow on our boat.”

Just make sure you keep it dry and away from saltwater. Then it’s all smooth sailing.


Replace Your … Motorcycle?

We’ve heard from countless riders who’ve used the RadMini to replace their cars, but a few Rad Riders have weighed in to tell us that its the perfect bike to replace their motorcycles.

“I have a motorcycle that has been in storage for years gathering dust, due to maintenance, insurance, registration, and the lack of time or funds to get it running again,” Andy W. wrote. “The Mini opened my eyes to the possibilities. It's fun to ride!"

Makes sense to us. With a throttle that can effortlessly get you up to 20 mph and 5 levels of pedal assist, we guess you could say it's an ... easy rider.

Rad Rider Rae calls the RadMini “perfect for the RV lifestyle,” especially since it gives her family of full-time RV’ers the chance to really enjoy their surroundings.

“We love to just cruise around the campgrounds and say hi to our neighbors. Get used to people stopping you to talk about your ebike though!” she wrote. “It's so nice that the fat tire can go over any terrain. We are now picking our campgrounds based on if they are close to a bike path or not."

And as for those quick trips to civilization to load up on supplies?

“We hated driving our big truck into town,” she wrote. “We have actually been able to move around faster than we would in our truck because we're not sitting in traffic or looking for parking.”


Campus Commuting

Between pop quizzes, hitting the books, and still trying to balance a social life, there are a lot of reasons the school year might make you sweat. Making it to class on time shouldn’t be one of them.

“This bike has saved me so much time and deodorant from the sweaty hustles I used to make to class,” wrote Rad Rider Alexis L., a Colorado-based college student. “I've paid for this bike just in the wages I've earned using it for food delivery services.”

As an added bonus, it’s also the perfect size for a dorm! That means you don’t have to worry about on-campus parking fees, budgeting for gas money, or keeping it on a bike rack over night.

You’ve probably already picked up a minifridge, why not a RadMini?
