Anyone in Manhattan willing to let me test drive or see their RadRunner Plus?

I'm looking for a RadRunner Plus to get around Manhattan, possibly with my 80-100 kids on board. I'm looking for a RadRunner Plus or RadWagon 4. Anyone willing to let me see theirs? There aren't any dealerships in Manhattan and I don't want to buy something that I need a professional to assemble and then find out that I don't want it and decide to return it.


Man, that's a lot of kids - when do you find the time to ride?   ;D
Shucks Ma'am, I'm no "Hero Member", I just like to wear this cape.


I'm not in NY, and Rad does have a return policy, but building the bike and taking it back apart would be a major pain.

Just as a note, if you are riding with one kid at a time, the Rad runner should be fine as long as your combined weight is not much more than 300 pounds. For riding with two kids at the same time, you will definitely need the RadWagon or similar cargo bike. The RadWagon weight limit is 350 pounds, but Rad frames are stronger than they need to be. For example, I carried an adult passenger several miles on my RadMini, and that's almost 400 pounds on a FOLDING bike! It was an emergency, but the bike handed it perfectly despite grossly exceeding the 275 pound weight limit.

If you have any plans to travel to the DC/Baltimore area, has most of the Rad models to test ride, including the Runner Plus and Wagon 4.
