    EU RadRhino 2018 + Upgrades

    I lived in LA for 2 years and ran a Radrover which I loved but sold before I left due to shipping issues. I am now in Europe and am considering a Rhino. You mentioned in the post that you can adjust the top speed to 40kmh... I assume you do the same to revert it back to 25kmh? In LA it was not...

    Rad Power, how is it so in-expensive

    I use mine to commute 22 miles a day. I bought on a budget and am very pleased. Almost 700 miles in 3 months.... Components are perform well and have only had a couple of tweaks... Battery is still as strong as the day I bought it.

    How many of you bought this bike sight unseen?

    I bought unseen. I am from the UK but am working in california for two years. I needed a bike urgently to help get me to work and back. The other major hurdle is that there are no shower facilities at my work that I could use so my road bike was never going to go down well with my work...

    Ibera PackRack Bag and IB-RA5

    Looking like you have gone for the same fender / rack combo as mine. I have a couple of transit laptop bags which I hang from it which also fit my human powered road bike when I use it for commuting. I have since gone for a smoother tyre which doesn't look as good under the fender but is way...

    Battery charging

    I have recharged mine 8 times now and sparks every time with charger unplugged from the mains. My battery is never fully discharged when I do normally has had 2-3 bars still remaining after my commute for the day (23 miles round trip). I would run it down further but might wonder if I will get...

    Maxxis Hookworms

    Christopher... First impression was... What have I done! I found them way to firm and could not get into any decent rythmn. Hard to believe but thought it harder to ride! Whether a coincidence or not I adjusted the wheel diameter to 24 and the bike performed as well as previous. May be I just...

    Fenders from Big O Mfg.

    They supplied me a kit the other day. I had to drill off and modify the front arms to fit. Loving the look.
