I did it. I bought a Rad Bike

Wow! I’m impressed. First off let me just say the staff at the San Diego Rad Bike Store is amazing. 

We just purchased 2 Rad Minis. I was expecting to pay the full 2022 price. After all it was a new year and the price of everything has gone up. But what the heck, I’ll mention that we were on the waiting list back in late December when the price was $200 cheaper. To my astonishment, he asked me for the email address we used for the waiting list sign up. When, he saw we were actually on the list, the employee said, “we’ll honor last year’s price and the accessory sale price that was also back in December”.

Granted, we still spent what I feel is a fortune for 2 bikes, but we also saved $500.

It was late the store was getting closer to closing, but I never felt rushed. Let me just say the store was very busy too. I could not believe when he asked if we wanted our rear racks and mirrors installed on the bikes? Of course! Thank you! Once completed the staff even loaded them into our truck. 

This was a pleasant big ticket buying experience. Hmmm, maybe the kindness and friendliness of the staff is the aphrodisiac that lures people into buying their bikes.

Now, what do I name my new ebike?

FYI the basket is from Staples. It’s a $10 office organizer. The flowered insert is a bike basket bag. I just grab it and go. I use it for all my bike baskets. The seat is from my beach cruiser. After all a big butt, needs a big butt seat. The seat post is a little rusted but I’ll be painting it black soon. 

Okay, this is the last bike I’m buying. No more! But honestly every bike has a purpose. I will never ride my new Rad Mini in my area of town. It’s way too dangerous. I’ll be traveling with it, cruising long distances on paths and trails. Shelby, is still my favorite bike/trike for commuting in town. She may be kinda dorky looking, but no driver can ever say they didn’t see me.
