    Narrowing down choices. . .

    New to the forum--very helpful resource! Forgive me for any naiveté; I'm in the information-gathering stage and there's a whole lot I don't know. I bought a Radwagon for my wife a couple years ago, which we love. I understand it's not a high quality piece of cycling machinery, but it serves...

    EU RadRhino 2018 + Upgrades

    So after long time of reading about ebikes decided that I just had to buy one and get things rolling... The interesting part was that I wanted a cargo bike, and 'the one' that had everything that I wanted was the 2018 R&M Multicharger, here in Finland that means close to 5000€, yes you could say...

    Rad Rover Bike Repair Stand Made from a TV Stand

    I had hard time trying to find a heavy duty repair stand for my Rad Rover. Most stands are not built to handle 60+ lbs. I came up with another solution taking an older heavy duty TV monitor stand with a bike repair clamp by Park. Park Bike Repair Clamp...

    Freedom (RAoK Video)

    Years ago when I drove a car, I would often stop if it seemed I could be helpful. Unfortunately it was sometimes impossible due to traffic. Then when I started commuting by bus it was rare I could stop. Now that I ride a Radwagon, I do whatever pleases me at the time. My boss doesn't hassle me...

    New RadCity, wrong fork? Would love for you to opine

    Hi folks, newb to the forum. I'm not a mechanic of any kind and I haven't worked on a bike in years, but I think my new RadCity may have come wither the wrong fork attached. The fork appears to be way to wide for the wheel provided. The very outside edges of the threaded part of the axle BARELY...

    Help Me Choose A Fat Tire Ebike - RadRover / Yukon / M2S / Hype / ETC

    Howdy, First time poster, although I've been watching Court's videos and reading all your reviews for like 2 months now, and I'm getting closer to biting the bullet. Hell, I'd already have bought my RadRover if they were still in stock, but I'm still having to wait a week. Since I'm waiting...

    RadWagon 3000 Mile Review

    After 3000 miles the RadWagon is still running great. I used to drive a 65 Ford Falcon Ranchero- This feels like the bicycle equivalent but without the gas fumes. Pros: Solid construction- Have had no issues. Reliable- After a disastrous run of flat tires (4 in the first month) I...

    Best Day!

    Had to take my RadWagon into Rad Power because my battery mount was slipping. Getting it back today and from what they say, they have done me R-I-G-H-T! I think they are hooking me up with new spokes and a tune up along with the battery fix. My spokes were trashed after 2,800 miles in the first...

    I like the Rad Power Radcity ebike - What other models in that style can you recommend?

    I've just spent hours watching reviews on your site. Thanks for your great reviews. I was thinking of building an eBike, but I didn't think I could build one that has the features I found on the Rad Power Radcity that your reviewed and save money. I'm 5' 11 and weigh ~ 190 lbs and looking for...

    SF Bay Area Maintenance

    Hi All I recently got a Rad City, which has been a lot of fun. However, there are couple things that I think i'd like checked out by a professional. I assembled the bike after it arrived in the box. The back wheel came already attached, to the frame, but I am concerned the disk brake isn't...

    HELP! Need to buy spokes

    I need to re thread my rear wheel and am having much trouble finding new spokes. Last time I tried to let my LBS order something for me they did the old bait and switch (I didn't fall for it though) so I want to order them myself. This is for a rear wheel with a hub motor on the Radwagon (Link...

    Got HIt By a Car

    Had my first collision with a car. I was in the bike lane, the driver made a right turn into a driveway. She came from behind, passed me, paced me in her blind spot but before I could slow down she turned and THEN put on her blinker. This happened a few days ago and although I did not feel...

    3rd flat in under a month (Radwagon)

    In the first 2 weeks my front tire went flat, no hole in tire, only tube. Patched, flat again 2 weeks. New tube, flat today- 2 weeks. Still no hole in tire. I am thinking it is the rim.
