    Battery maintenance

    I've heard for long term storage (4-6 months or more), store the battery at 50%. However the Voltage definition of 50% of 4.2V batteries I've seen varies (I've seen 3.85V, 3.8V, 3.5V etc..). So anyone want to chime in what is the correct voltage of a 48V battery to be at 50%? Thanks in advance.

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    Before you go changing chainrings and/or cassettes, I suggest you use this extremely user friendly web page and enter your specifics (cogs/chainrings/tire size) to see the speed you could get at a comfortable cadence RPM.

    Is the CrossCurrent S2 52V the best value and speed and range for the money??

    With high-end specs like 52V/13Ah, 28MPH, hydraulic brakes, 25A controller, torque & cadence sensors, 9sp Shimano Altus drivetrain for $1799, I don't think another ebike comes even close to the value the CCS2 offers. One question I have has to do with range. The company says real range is...

    Rad bikes going up

    Does anyone know if there is even an ebike (frame/battery/controller/display... I mean everything minus the Shimano stuff) that is made in the US???? All I know is that the few US manufacturing that is leaving China, is going NOT to the US but to nearby Asian countries, so that they can still be...

    Down with spandex!

    During a 40 mile ride at average speed 23-24 mph, the last thing I have is energy to freaking wave... especially when I'm on the drops and trying to keep up with the group. The amount of energy exerted on a mechanical bike going that average speed is enormous... at least it is for me...

    Down with spandex!

    Joke thread or not, hypothetically, if you were to try some of those things I read here on the roadie group (about 10 riders) that I sometimes ride with on a 40 mile trek, not only will they catch up to you (they are fit to do sprints at 30-33mph), but also beat the crap out of you as those guys...

    Looking at used Rook

    Super great if battery is new. Ride it before you buy it and check for any weird noises from the rear wheel (hub/cassette). Check/adjust spokes and trueness of wheel (especially the rear wheel). Check all electronics for proper operation (LCD display, lights). Look for any scratches/dents in the...

    Haibike Radius Tour

    That looks like a different saddle from stock... but I could be wrong.

    RadCity or Aventon Pace 500

    That's why I wrote: "Maybe we should think of the Pace 500 as hybrid class between 2 & 3. ". Cause class 3 is clearly without a throttle.

    RadCity or Aventon Pace 500

    This says you are wrong: The three classes are defined as follows: Class 1: eBikes that are pedal-assist only, with no throttle, and have a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph. Class 2: eBikes that also...

    RadCity or Aventon Pace 500

    @harryS is right. The Pace 500 would be a class 3 >>ONLY IF<< you unplug and remove the throttle (which will take you all of 60sec to do). Probably why the throttle is limiting speed to 20mph (and will be the 2nd thing I do to reprogram and remove that limit ;)). Maybe we should think of the...

    RadCity or Aventon Pace 500

    As I said I was trying to compare apples to apples as the Rad comes with a suspension fork. BTW, the current swept back cruiser style handlebar would be the first thing I replace. A flat bar handlebar will run about $20. So problem solved. BTW, I think pace 500 has a head tube that is tapered...

    RadCity or Aventon Pace 500

    The Aventon Pace 500 has hydraulic brakes and class 3 speed, and IMO is the better ebike between those 2 which are very close in price when equipped equally (BTW, the juiced CrossCurrent S2 is +$400 more and you still have to pay +$100 more to add rack & fenders and tail light, so the comparison...
