      Lindan July 21 I saw on the website that a place in Austin has them, b8ta. Not clear if they are renting them or selling. I thought radbikes company only sold direct to consumer, but partnered with bike stores to rent them. We rented to try them and received a $50 coup...  more

    Crazy Lenny,s that has really good prices.
