The Rad Power Bikes Origin Story
Way back in 2007, when he was still in high school and tired of biking sixteen miles every day, Mike Randenbaugh picked up a wrench, battery, and motor, and attached them to an old mountain bike. When his neighbors saw what he’d done, they begged Mike to build them their own electric bikes, and Rad Power Bikes was born.
In the years following, Randenbaugh refined and perfected his design, and joined forces with his childhood friend Ty Collins in 2015 to reform Rad Power Bikes into a direct to consumer business. Today, RPB has almost a dozen models, and demand has never been higher since the pandemic began. Biking is back in style, and it is rad indeed.
