Do you absolutely love getting out on the open road on a bike? Chances are you’ve been riding a bike longer than you’d care to admit but they’re not always the most practical ways to commute or even get out in nature anymore.
In fact, the older I get, the more those Colorado hills scare me. I would see a hill coming and I would start to get anxious. “I can do it damnit!” I would tell myself. And yet, getting up those hills can be a bear! That’s where an EBike can come in handy!
Especially if you live in a bigger metro area, you may have started to see electronic bikes around. They allow you to ride like normal or kick in their single-speed motors to make that ride easier. In fact, one of the best things about Ebikes is that you don’t need to be physically fit to ride one!
Electric bikes can be expensive, but we love the Rad Power Bikes. They have so many options, but their RadMission1 is an Electric Metro Bike that’s perfect for commutes or just riding around town. This bike comes with a 500W high-torque motor and up to 45+ miles battery range, so it’s perfect for getting to and from work with lower emissions than getting stuck in traffic or making a quick trip to the grocery store.
Their twist grip throttle also lets you only use the power when you don’t want to pedal. You know I’ll be using it when I get to the bottom of one of those hills!
Many EBikes we’ve seen are super heavy to accommodate the motor. But this electric bike is under 50lb which makes getting it around public transportation and stored away super easy.
What’s the Price Like?
Here’s the thing. We think a lot of the electric bikes we’ve found are a bit pricey, but the RadMission1 starts at only $1,099. We all know that you can spend that much on a regular, high-quality bike, so why not go for the added oomph of the motor?
Is it Worth It?
This particular bike has hundreds of 5 star reviews, is their lowest price point, and you can add racks and other accessories to make it the perfect commuter vehicle. While we hesitate to share any product that’s $1,000+, we do think if you’re in the market for a new bike you should take a long look at the RadMission1!
Plus, if you do end up purchasing one, we’ve got just the book to keep your new bike in tip top shape.
