The Fremont pannier bag can be attached to any model equipped with a rear rack. The RadMini, RadMission, and RadRover require the additional purchase and installation of a rear rack in order to attach a pannier bag to these models. You can purchase the RadMini rear rack, RadMission rear rack, and the RadRover rear rack directly from Rad Power Bikes.
The steps below use a 2019 RadCity and pannier bag as an example, but the steps will be very similar for other models and pannier bags.
Attach a Pannier to your bike
- Locate the rear rack. Ensure the bike has a rear rack installed before attempting to attach a pannier bag.
- Place the bag hooks into position. Place the bag hooks onto the rear rack and carefully push down on the hooks until they clip into place.
- Secure the center clip. Rotate the clip on the back of the bag until it secures the bag to the rear rack. The center clip may not make full contact with the rear rack, depending on your model. As long as the top clips are properly secured to the top of the rear rack, and the remaining steps in this guide are followed, the bag should be secure.
- Prepare the top strap (if present). Pass the strap up through the bottom of the rear rack, through the bag handle, and over the top of the bag. The strap should pass over a rung on the rear rack.
- Fold the pannier bag and secure the buckles. Roll the top of the bag downward, then fold the top
corners together and secure the buckle. Pass the top strap (if present) over the bag to the strap at the front and buckle together. Once the bag is secured, it should not move easily or fall off the bike.
