    Crosscurrent X Log

    As soon as I posted that second commute I got a bad case of the flu, I finally feel up to riding again starting tomorrow. Attached are pictures of my rig. It pokes out a little further than my handlebars, which is still closer than I'd want anyone to get to me. A good thing though too. I think...

    Pannier bag recommendations

    You can solve all of these problems with a Topeak out front water bottle mount, attached to your frame at the bottom. It's what I did to keep the stock rack. Adds a mounting point for panniers that want to "grab" something.

    Got Juiced? RipCurrent S Log

    I've had my own issues with Juiced support (A lot of them, and a lot of the same ones people here have). Despite people with no stake in the company defending them to the grave (Why are you defending a corporation so fervently? You owe them nothing. They owe US, the customers, answers and...

    New Ripcurrent S owner - cool bike, frustrating support

    I'd never go on a long ride without the ability to remove the rear wheel for tube replacement, but a lot of people do. Before I got the special wrench I had this in my pack https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01F51179Q/ref=ppx_yo_mob_b_inactive_ship_o0_img?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    New Ripcurrent S owner - cool bike, frustrating support

    Juiced sells a rear tire removal tool, which is a uniquely shaped wrench. You can get the rear wheel off with a normal wrench but risk rounding the corners of the bolt due to the angle.

    Got Juiced? RipCurrent S Log

    They sent me a box to send my battery back in. One thing I've learned, the support can be bargained with. If they want you to pay for return shipping, be very adamant about not doing so and they'll probably back down.

    Got Juiced? RipCurrent S Log

    That's a new issue to me. Can you check the voltage at the pins? How do the pins look? Sounds like you might have a problem with the BMS.

    The JUICE GRIND

    Well I wish I had known that was an option. My CCX did the same thing, with about 100 miles on it, and they were insistent that I send it back at my own cost. Which was $160 in shipping from UPS. They returned a working wheel, but I never got any reimbursement. It was a pretty terrible...

    Battery charging times

    https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/charging-to-80-without-a-satiator.24763/ Charging is uniform until the battery reaches a high level of charge, and the charger then switches to "trickle charge". This rate is 2 amps of current. The trick then comes in converting volts to Ah (charge...

    New Juiced CCS2 Crosscurrent s 2 followup

    I had that issue in the beginning, I just had to rotate the ergo grips up so my forearms and wrists formed a straight line. In the stock configuration my wrists were bent up 45 degrees, which cause pain and numbness.
