March 4th, 2020 | by Kyle Field

If I'm being honest, I wasn't that excited about the RadRover Step-Thru when I first heard about it. It's nothing against the bike, I've just found that over time, going into a product review with zero or negative expectations is actually a great place to start. But in contrast with many things I review that simply perform as expected, the RadRover Step-Thru electric bike absolutely blew me away
