Rad Power Bikes to open on Market

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on March 29th, 2016


Rad Power Bikes is opening its flagship store in Ballard at 2622 NW Market St and will celebrate with a grand opening party this Saturday, April 2, from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Visitors can enjoy discounts, test rides, treats, and learn more about electric bikes and the advantages that they provide.

The company is making the move across the Locks from nearby Magnolia.

Rad Power Bikes is a direct to consumer electric bike (ebike) company that lets customers purchase an ebike directly from Rad Power Bikes and bypass dealer and third party retail markups.

Rad Power Bikes cater to both utilitarian as well as recreational riding with its two street legal models, The RadRover and RadWagon. The RadRover, a mountain bike style electric fat bike that handles off-road terrain, and the RadWagon, an electric cargo bike with room for passengers, extra gear, or a combination of the two.

“We can’t wait to officially open our doors and show off both our space and bikes to Seattle,” says Rad Power Bikes Co-Founder/President Mike Radenbaugh. “We love the bikes that we designed and know that everyone will too. And, because we sell straight to the end user, people will find that our bikes offer the same premium features and components as a lot of bikes out there that are twice the price.”

    you can’t ride ebikes on sidewalks, trails like the Burke Gilman or parks. Most off road bike trails don’t allow them either. They’re motorized vehicles and essentially mopeds, but with an electric motor instead of a gas one.

    They’re not allowed on sidewalks, but they are allowed on most multipurpose trails. RCW 46.61.170 exempts them from most of the rules about mopeds in subsection (5).
