The Lumos helmets are available with MIPS: https://amzn.to/2TN2moP

I've used the same helmet for years in the hot humid summers and freezing winters. You just need to wear a hat underneath. On very extreme days I'll just wear my snowboard helmet.

Not sure if anyone here has opted for turn signals so perhaps you will have to share what you decide.  ;D Personally I just like having lights on all of the time so people can see me. I guess in more dense areas they make more sense. I really like the Abus helmet that I recently reviewed that has a built in LED on the back - a little less crazy than the Lumos but still works. While it is rated for ebikes it is not MIPs.

Looking to upgrade the seat post to a Cane Creek Thudbuster ST Suspension Seatpost 31.6 (Newest Version). What is the size needed for the Rad Rover?

You need to make sure you get a width of 27.2 mm. I have a few different options on my accessories list: https://www.radowners.com/index.php/topic,104.0.html

The Suntour and the Thudbuster are the ones many people go with but there are a couple cheaper options. Let us know what you end up going with.

I believe they have a model for disk brakes as well. I just don't know if they would fit. There are also several adapters for different brake types. I just have no clue as to what I should pick if I decide to go with those.

I saw the Lumos helmet but I'm not sure if they are as safe. I believe they are not even MIPS. Besides, those don't require batteries, which is pretty cool.

Also, I believe I might need 2 helmets. How do you cope with 95F in summer and -13F in winter with one helmet only? Won't you want a closed one for winter and a ventilated one during summer?

So I'm still looking for bike-attached alternatives. This one could be an option, but I'd like to here from the community what works well:

You can increase the speed on the Runner by eliminating the speed control input. To do that you can clip the small white wire that runs between the controller and the motor. I've done this and so far my max speed on a flat surface is 24 mph. I have a picture and will try to figure out how to include it. I'm new here.

At a glance looks like those are made for rim brakes though I didn't spend a lot of time digging in. I like the Lumos helmets as an alternative though no experience myself: https://amzn.to/3dnAsHP
