    Removing the speed limit of 20 miles/hr

    The motor is wound for 20 mph. The power tapers off after that. If you install a 52V battery and change your speed limiter to 40 kph you may get about 4 more mph on top end if you're not too heavy. I did this at first with my Radrover and am 185 lbs. You can change the cassette to change your...

    Radwagon worked for 5 miles :(

    @Lost Found that out the hard way. Maybe with them owning Chrysler now their engineering and quality will improve.

    New tires and rotating tires on Rad Rover

    @Lost Yeah. I would drop it by a couple of inches. The stock tires are actually 29" inflated. Hookworms are true 26" inflated. You'll notice more torque and acceleration for sure. Play around with the diameter settings until the bike rides the way you want it to. I would prefer this over a true...

    @Sai Kodi I did 60a and run schrader valves on heavy duty downhill tubes in my hookworms. Your links look good btw.

    Tire options for RadMini? Rack options?

    @Fred in Seattle Sounds like a plan. The RPB frames lend themselves well to mid-drive conversions.

    New tires and rotating tires on Rad Rover

    @vincent No problem. Never hurts to be too careful. Peace of mind counts for something when your miles away from home.

    Radwagon worked for 5 miles :(

    Wow. I should have bought a diesel Passat back in 2013 when I bought my Fiat 500 Abarth new. I could have had a better deal. I traded it last June with 44K miles on it for $10.500 after I paid $26,000 for it ($27,300 was retail and it had every package available at the time).

    New tires and rotating tires on Rad Rover

    @vincent Be careful not to get pinch flats running low psi. Especially if you are like me and a little thick around the midsection. I run heavy duty downhill tubes, thick rim liners, and tuffy tire liners.

    Woot!

    BMSbatttery.com for empty case with dock. Took about an hour to swap mine out. See my post on here for more info.

    New full fenders

    @Lost Hopefully they are extraordinary quality and worth every penny. Coming from the motorcycle industry for the past 15 years, quality costs top dollar.

    48v Pansonic GA 17.5ah Black Killer Whale Ebike Pack from Luna Cycles

    @Lost And there is no way to re-calibrate at the end user side of things. Perhaps RPB could do this although I have my doubts.

    48v Pansonic GA 17.5ah Black Killer Whale Ebike Pack from Luna Cycles

    @Lost You are correct. The gauge will only start working once you drop below the maximum voltage it's calibrated at. By then you will be running low and the gauge won't be accurate anyway. I would install a battery meter that measures Ah. This is your best solution. Luna cycle sells 3 versions.

    Switching out to hydraulic brakes. Switching to brighter headlight.

    My advice to someone attempting this for the first time is to plan your conversion extensively from mechanical to hydraulic as well as triple check all your bolts tightness, cable routing for binding, and caliper adjustment. Once completed, I would take the bike out for a quick test ride in a...
