ive got 1000 miles on my wagon now , spokes have settled in after several tension adjustments & apex ziptie of spokes - old trick ! no other problems other that the really crappy handlebars , ive done a little grinding on handlebar mount adjustment to bring bars further back for more upright rideing position , my question can we replace bars with new rad runner bars , what bars fit head clamp / grips & accessories as the center is thicker than the ends etc for straighter wrist position & adjustability ?

I have a 2016 radwagon and the stem is 1 1/8 inch thick and the clamp size is 25.4 mm. If your going to put thicker 31.8 mm thicker mtb bars, then you'll need a new 1 1/8 inch stem that can clamp 31.8 mm bars. I replaced my bars with a Jones type handlebar so I had to replace the stem too.

I needed my bars a little higher and back (closer) on my Radwagon. I went with a new stem and riser, big improvement! I ended up rotating the stem 180 degrees to get even a little closer. Perfect upright position now.
