RadWagon anybody?

Hi everybody,

We're interested in purchasing a RadWagon e-assisted family bike. Reviews are pretty good online and the pricetag of a Xtracycle just work for us.

Does anybody have any experience with this bike?

Thanks.

Heard nothing but good things about the company; extended review on endless sphere AFAIR. Plus they're somewhat local --- home run.

I purchased a RadWagon at the end of April and I have been nothing but happy with it and the company. Shipment to Utah was quick(2-days) and set-up to no more than an hour using their video as a guide.

As for ride, we love it! I use it to take my 6 and 8 year old to school and then ride myself uphill to work. I have a 533 ft gain in elevation each day with it being about 6.1 miles. The rad makes hauling 130 pounds of kid around super easy and has cut 10 minutes off my car commute times with me not having to sit at red lights an stop signs. And no, I don't run red lights and stop signs. I can take routes through parks and the university campus where there are bikes paths and no streets.

This weekend my 210 pound neighbor made the journey to our local pub to fill our growlers and it had no problem with the load. Since April 28th we have ridden it 141 trouble free miles. My goal is 300+ in June when school is out and I can ride the kids to camp everyday.

All I have added to the bike are seat cushions and will order the front basket as soon as it is available.

They are a good bike for the money. see the "Trek or Genze" thread for my comment on the RAdwagon. There is a Portland, OR shop that still has a few pre production models @ $1499: 52v in Stock Bafang BBS-02(01) kits 750-1300w Electric ebike Don

I bought a Radwagon in February and I am overall very happy with the bike. I use it to commute to work for 6 miles each way with a monster hill and I am setting it up to carry my kids (2 and 3 year olds). I found it reasonably easy to set up (I am no bike mechanic!) but had an initial issue with a bent in transit or defective fork. I emailed the company and sent them some pictures and they were very responsive sending me a new fork on the mail.

I'm also thinking of purchasing the Radwagon. I don't need a cargo, just like the power and looks. Atxmarmot, are you still satisfied with your purchase? Any issues? Thanks.
