    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    Thanks for that extra comment. I really don't have hills to contend with except for the intracoastal bridges that reach a height of 65 feet above the water. My Rad Runner1 has no problems with that at all: pedal assist 1 or 2 and some intermittent throttle.

    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    You are so right! But why mess with all of that and void warrantees. There are so many companies ( Juiced, Ariel Rider, Sondors) that allow far more adjustment while staying in warranty. Don't get me wrong. Not unhappy with my Rad Runner 1. It suits me well for the purposes for which I...

    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    I get the Class 2 liability issues. But if Rad is so concerned don't offer the 40 kph option. I'm curious now if I reset the kph to a lower amount than 32, will the motor shut off at the lower limit?

    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    To be truthful, 20 mph on the Rad Runner feels very fast to me. It's more the principle of the thing: why doesn't the controller/motor respond as one would expect.

    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    Thanks for your reply. I appreciate it. It's not a big deal but over the years I have read that owners have been able to get a bit more performance by adjusting the upper speed limit. I thought it might have something to do with the fact that the Runner1 has only 4 power assist levels. The...

    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    I ordered my Rad Runner 1 with the optional LCD display. I reset the top speed to 40 kph (24 mph ). However the motor still cuts off pedal assist at 20 mph (32 kph ). Is this unique to the Rad Runner 1?

    Aventon Sinch fat tire electric bike review

    Wow! I would be surprised if that hits the US market as the "E-Trek". Also I don't think it is the first foldable with dual suspension.

    Aventon Sinch fat tire electric bike review

    He sells primarily the 350 and 500 models both high step and low step. He also stocks the Level but not as plentiful as the other models. He doesn't really stock the Sinch because folders do not sell well.

    Radmini 3rd party rear rack and fenders

    Does anyone have or know if a Racktime rear rack will fit a Rad Mini 2020? I see this as a great advantage because Racktime has so many bag and basket accessories that can be interchanged without having to unbolt them from the rack as with Rad accessories.

    One of the benefits of buying local is that the bike should be set up perfectly before delivery. Any respectable LBS will test ride the bike before delivering a new bike or repairing an older one.

    Aventon Sinch fat tire electric bike review

    I like electrek for a quick overview but it is not comprehensive. I agree that he really went overboard on the weld guality. I have a local bike shop who now sells Aventon pretty much to the exclusion of his other brands. The Aventons sell so quickly that they are the only bikes in the shop for...

    Rad Runner Single Speed Advice

    Thank you for the description of your experience. I installed the Suntour suspension seat post on my commuter bike and it is fantastic. I would suggest you install that along with a new seat. The Suntour seat post is available on eBay for a lot less than Rad Power Bikes sells them. I plan to...
