My 2018 Radrover aka the Radillac
« on: April 23, 2019, 12:12:31 AM »
I got it in September of last year and am now up to 815 miles, hope to put more on this summer. I have done a bunch of upgrades and have a few more left to do but this is what it looks like now.

Thanks for sharing. I see the benefit of having that style of the handlebars. Is the orange thing on the front a battery or a speaker? Also the Rad light is pretty cool, I just couldn't quite justify the cost back when they sold them  :)

With the original handlebars, any further than 15 miles and my hands would start going numb. The angle of your wrists, while holding them, isn't natural. I love my Jones H bar. The orange thing is a Bluetooth speaker, but it does have a large battery and will play for hours and hours.

What rear rack is that? I know some there are people who want to know which third party rear racks fit the Rads since they are often out of stock.

New white wall tires added. I think they really stand out and accentuate the white.

And we thought we got a lot of comments when we're riding around town. Can't imagine the amount of people that stop you!  8)

Did you have any problems or issues installing the Rad throttle?  How about the other cables, brakes, display, shifters, etc?  Did you have to lengthen any cables?

Thanks,

George

The only cable that you might need an extension for is the rear brake. If you buy the Rad branded rack it comes with it. For third party racks you will need to purchase one. Everything else you mentioned is preinstalled on the bike.

Thanks for your response.  My question regarding the throttle is, does the RAD throttle fit the Jones bar?

Late response, my apologies. Everything from my stock handlebars on my 2018 Rover transferred over to the H Bar with no problems.
