They usually have a great Black Friday sale.  Thatís when I purchased my new Rad Wagon last year.  Donít believe the 2020 will be out then.

Anyone know when the 2020 models will come out? 

I am ready to order the Radwagon but figure I might wait since it is almost November.  Not sure if they update the bikes each year, maybe range, colors etc. 

Suggestions?  Anyone have an idea about this?  Thank you.

Officially crossed 3,000 miles on our second season of ownership. It's getting gold fast here in Wisconsin so we will see what we finish out the year at.

The install of the M-1 hydraulic brake units from BOLTON BIKES was really easy since they use the original brake levers, discs and cables. They are smoother since both pads move in instead of only one moving pad on the standard Tektro brake units. They are not stronger since the standard units can lock the wheels pretty easy. These are not necessary but are a nice upgrade.  My bike is quieter when braking and has a little smoother brake action.  Since I am a fool for upgrades I recommend this one.  No real downside except for the $150.00 expense. Also no bleeding or maintenance is needed except for a future pad change and they use easy to get Shimano brake pads.  Bolton bikes has a nice video of the install procedure.
Thanks for sharing. I guess I wasn't aware you could use the same cables? And no maintenance? I thought with hydraulic brakes they would at some point need the lines bled. If you have some I'd be curious to see some pictures. Appreciate the balanced review!

Well theres plenty of Companies, Manufacturers moving production to other countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia ect, China is an ongoing Power that's just going to become and our to powerful, bullying countries throughout the World, Hong Kong is in active turmoil,
This said Corporations, Companies need to be proactive,  finding humane affordable manufacturing outside of China's oppressive regime.

General Chat / Handlebar Jack - New Ultra Portable Bicycle Repair Stand
« Last post by Andy W on October 11, 2019, 04:14:42 AM »
Hello Rad Owners!

My name is Andy Wilkoff.  I am the designer and ebike owner of a new bicycle accessory I recently launched.  I followed this forum on twitter and the Rad Owners Admin gave me permission to post this on the forum.

For about the last year I have been tinkering in my garage making a bike accessory. I call it a Handlebar Jack. I was worried about damaging my handlebars or accessories on my handlebars during repair.

I had a bunch of stress centered around getting flat tires. When you change a flat out in the field the easiest thing to do is to flip it on the handlebars and then service your bike. Well in our case it could damage the control screen on our ebikes.

The Handlebar Jack is a mini purpose-built tripod that attaches temporarily to your handlebars creating a stable offset to rest your handlebars upside down while you do a field repair. When not in use the Jacks magnetically lock together and can be stowed in a trunk bag or backpack.

I am happy to extend Raw Owners Forum an exclusive discount of 10% off your first order!

The website is www.handlebarjack.com

Use the code: RADOWNERS at checkout to receive your discount!

Thanks for your support!  I am happy to answer any questions!

Andy

Welcome! I'm in Wausau so not too far even via the Mountain Bay trail! I know there are at least a couple of other riders in the area. We too commute mostly on our Wagon.

Hi, I am in Green Bay, WI

I have been taking my bike to work for a couple of years, weather permitting, usually two or three days a week. I regular rode anytime the temps were above freezing (and a few below freezing). My trip is only about 2 miles (3.2km) one way, slightly downhill to work. If I push it really hard I can make the trip in 8 minutes, but then I am hot and sweaty, ok on the way home, but not so much going to work. Usually I am just about 12 minutes one way. This sort of rules out running home for lunch on a 30 minute break. I was riding a Giant Escape, a mountain bike style, but with skinny road tires and higher gearing.

I bought a Rad City and took it to work, amazing, I did the trip in pedal assist 3 and it took 5 minutes, it was almost scary, but I am sure I will get used to it quickly.  I did bump up the max speed to the limit.

I have even ridden home in some drizzle, let me tell you disk brakes and fenders are SO worth it.

So far so good.
