General Chat / 16 mile one way commute
« Last post by talon1974 on October 29, 2019, 06:22:27 PM »
So 32 miles a day. Iíd pedal some getting there for sure, but since I stand most of the day, Iíd probably want to throttle back. Itís relatively flat. I weigh 230lbs.  Would the RadRunner work well for me. Iím curious doing that kind of mileage 4 days a week, how it will hold up. Also, can you increase max speed (what is it realistically).

Thanks for thoughts!

I originally said rad rover. Edited it to reflect what I meant - Rad Runner.

WRT mirrors. My go to for all my bikes is the Take a Look mirror https://www.amazon.com/Bike-Peddler-Cycling-Eyeglass-Mirror/dp/B001VTQNVO that fits on your glasses  frame, ( you can fit it on almost all glass frames except for the wire rim type.
Approx  $12
It's easily adjustable, stays put ( again on you sunglass or eyeglass frame , not that well on your helmet, and give great, convenient  rear view vision.

Here is the video for those interested. I have not seen anything like this before. Given this is an easy upgrade that most people could DIY I'm going to add it to my list of accessories page here: https://www.radowners.com/index.php/topic,104.0.html

I think the only consideration is the steep price, but something to keep an eye on. One of my minor pain points is adjusting the brakes on my RadWagon. It just takes some patience but it seems like these would be much easier to adjust to get rid of any rubbing.

It's going to be really interesting to see what the 2020 models bring but I don't think they will be announced until early next year since they do a big Black Friday sale and wouldn't want to effect sales. The 2019 changes were nice to haves on the Wagon but there wasn't anything I had to have coming from our 2018 Wagon. We'll eventually be looking to pick up another bike and we'll see whether we pull the trigger on the Rad Runner on Black Friday or hold off.

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!
