Radrunner Gears
« on: May 12, 2020, 07:15:33 PM »
Has anyone looked into or know of a Radrunner that has had gears installed?  There is plenty of room back there and the dimensions seem identical to the Radrunner Plus which has gears.  Same question for the suspension fork.

Hey. Had the same question, and put it to Rad EU's customer support. Also asked about the suspension - and which RST suspension fork that they use on the Radrunner Plus.

Hi Chris,

thanks for reaching out! Good to hear about your interest and your purchase of the Runner.

Unfortunately the front suspension on the Runner Plus is not applicable on the regular Runner. The whole frame of the Plus has been adjusted for the is setup (front suspension and 7 speed gears) 

Hope this will answers your question!

Hi Chris,

although they look pretty similar, there are a lot of differences. For example the head tube angle and the width of the frame.

We don't use an "of the shelf" suspension fork, this one is custom designed and made specific for the RadRunner Plus.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,


They do look very similar to me in the pictures - the Radrunner and Radrunner Plus. Have also reached out to the Rad US customer support - in the hope that they may be more helpful (although no response yet).

Presumably a good bike workshop could advise, but curious to know if it has been done.

Cheers
