How it Works for Borrowers
Please Read Below Before Reserving a Bike! - Important Borrowing Details!
Rad Power Bikes RadWagon
The RadWagon is a cargo e-bike that can carry you and your kids, groceries, and other valuable cargo around town and some mild backroads. You have the option to borrow one or two Yepp kid seats that are rated for kids up to 48lbs each. The 5 pedal-assist levels and throttle help take the buckets of sweat away from your bike commute and the cargo carrying ability makes this a true car replacement!
Available to purchase online only at the Rad Power Bikes website. (MSRP: $1,599).
Minimum rider height: about 5'2"
E-bike weight: 73 pounds
Transport: ride home
Specialized Turbo Como
This e-bike feels like a rocket ship (if you want it to). Its over-sized road tires absorb bumps and cracks in the road. The e-assist propellers you over hills and across flats. The Turbo Como is great for commuting any distance, from 2 miles to 20 miles. With a range of up to about 60 miles, the Como will take you far! This bike fits folks who are 5'6" and taller. Available to purchase at Skirack (MSRP: $2,700).
Minimum rider height: about 5'26"
E-bike weight: 48 pounds
Transport: ride home, truck bed, van
Specialized Hard Rock with an E-bike Conversion Kit
This bike was updated with an e-bike conversion kit and battery, but it rides just as smoothly as an integrated bike. Give this bike a try to see if a conversion kit could work in your life.
