No experience with the RAD but purchased a PACE 500 a few months back and love it (also wanted a lighter bike so went with the PACE). To get fenders and a rack was < $60.00 - Pace sells fenders on their site and got the rack from Amazon. Also got a suspension seat post and it's now perfect for me.
Just a hypothesis, very strange it only occurs at one intersection. One would think if it was a bad connection, etc...you would have other random drop outs and not at one place every time. Bring a compass next time and see if it does strange things?
Hum...just a thought. If it occurs at that one intersection only, maybe it's the traffic light sensor in the road/asphalt? Some of these could have a much stronger magnetic field than others and it's somehow affecting the motor?
Sure, no problem. Yes, that is the correct rack (it does include fittings to move the rack out by a 1/2", but it's not needed on the Pace 500 as the mounting points on the bottom bracket are not close to the disk caliper)
Just another note - it took about 45 mins per bike to put these together...
I purchased two Pace 500's for my wife and I and can attest, they are awesome! Our first ebikes as well, really fun and quality components. We have people stopping us all the time, everyone really likes my wife's, it's the small frame Sand color....does look like a higher end bike.
Here's an article on how to make that adjustment :https://www.cyclist.co.uk/tutorials/74/how-to-adjust-a-rear-derailleur just so you know.
Really easy to adjust if you have the tools, a work stand and comfortable doing that
I purchased 2 Pace 500's a few weeks ago for my wife and I and really impressed with the quality. I know you are looking at a 350 w motor, but the quality of the components and support have been really great
Different approach but this is what I'm using: Allen Security Bolts: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B4V11RS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Odds of a thief having a security allen key are rare
Using this with a standard seat clamp
Have two Pace 500's, we did 21 miles on Saturday, really windy but mostly flat except for overpasses which are fairly steep. Had 50-70% battery left when we arrived home.
I used PAS 1 for the 1st half and mixed PAS 2-5 on the way home (about 50% remaining). Wife had closer to 70% left but is...
