I thought I got a good deal when I bought it for $1100, but this is fantastic at $800, for a solid brand.
This is a fixie hybrid commuter. Some of the reasons I like this one over the others:
- standard 27.5 tires so it's cheap and easy to replace when needed vs. weird tire sizes
- fixie drive train with no derailers so less maintenance and weather issues with greater reliability
- removable battery
- twist throttle like motorcycle (in addition to pedal assist) so you can also boost on demand when you want
I've had it for two months and love it, even though I haven't used it a ton. It was pretty easy to set up. No issues so far.

no frame size options that I can see??
So, as someone of 6 foot 5, I'd bet it'll be to small, and too short for me.
Looks nice and simple though

The Mission high step should be good for you. You can extend the sitpost and/or cockpit if need be.

"The high-step frame offers a 31” standover height for riders between 5’7” - 6’4”, while the mid-step frame has a 28” standover height for riders between 5’2” and 6’2”. "
The full geometry specs are further down the page. I'm 5'7" and took the high step and it works well, but I wouldn't have wanted this size if it I were mountain biking.

It's not just the height though, it's also the reach, so making do with a smaller frame tends to just lead to sore back and knees (from my own experience anyway)
But, as I really want to try an electric bike it's at least good to know, the prices are getting more reasonable :-)

I wanted to get another mini4 but it's sold out. Hoping the expand 5 goes on sale this black Friday. Anyone know if there may be a sale? Was this the case last year?

Yes, I believe so too. Not sure what all the rest of the blurb is for.... Simple matter of canadian e-bike rules.

Usually black friday ebike sales aren't very good. Ends up free accessories with purchase in past years.

Looks like the Black Friday sales are now up. https://radpowerbikes.ca/pages/sales-deals

IMO the "sneak peek" to Black Friday outweighs the current ones, unless you've been eying the City 4 or City Step Thru 3 (good commuter bikes.. my sister has the step thru).. being an older model, and at $1,249, this may sell out like the mini 4 and mission did.

Note the CIty 3/4 have direct drive motors which have their pros and cons. Less torque but in theory should be more durable in the long run.. also allows for regenerative braking, but I think that effect on range is relatively minor. The DD motor is also very quiet compared to my RR and mini.

Do you recommend the radmission or the rad city for an entry level purchase and general commuting and rides close to home?

I personally wanted the radmission for $800 but the price is back up to $1200 and also out of stock. May have to settle for rad city.

Ordered on October 6 ☹️..waited patiently (after many follow-ups) for them to just cancel it because they oversold.

Use your $100 + $50 discount to buy a radcity 4 for $1100+tax?
