    where can i find radrover bottom brackett specs ?

    I finally bit the bullet and decided to call Rad on the phone. After 45 minutes on hold (with numerous encouragements to use email instead, LOL!), I got through to a rep. He says the bottom bracket is 100mm x 150.5mm. I asked him what manufacturer made my bottom bracket and he said it could be...

    Day six of my inquiry and still nothing from Rad, except the two robo responses acknowledging receipt of my question.

    where can i find radrover bottom brackett specs ?

    As mentioned in the original reply, Rad is not that prompt with replies, right now. What's the harm in inquiring on a message board dedicated to Rad bikes?

    where can i find radrover bottom brackett specs ?

    Is the bottom bracket the parts that pass through the frame with the crank arms attached to it? If so, mine needs replacing ASAP, too. I sent Rad a note about my problem two days ago, and so far the only response has been TWO robo-responses saying they are backlogged, due to Covid-19. All I...

    Chain Replacement

    I have determined that my chain is not out of tolerances, using the 12 inch ruler method. I misread the ruler in poor light. I have determined that the loud, metallic clicking noise I am experiencing when putting substantial pressure on the pedals is definitely coming from the area where the...

    Chain Replacement

    Over 1/16" over the total length of the chain. More than the acceptable level of stretch, according to Park Tool. Who, I dont believe, are in the business of selling chains. A 68 lb bike with a 200 lb guy, putting his all into the pedals at Pedal Assist 5, going up steep rocky slopes (and still...

    Chain Replacement

    OK, I dont have the slick Park Tool chain measurer, but the layman's method they describe, using a ruler, shows my chain is more than 1/16" stretched. I will be changing it out.

    Known Issues & Problems with Rad Power Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

    I am experiencing a loud metallic "pop" when I put a medium amount of downward pressure on a pedal, especially the left pedal, for some reason. I replaced the original pedals, as one had gone bad.......and the "pop" seems to be more frequent. The noise seems to be coming somewhere near the front...

    Chain Replacement

    Can you tell me what symptoms one might experience, if the chain has gone south? I am experiencing a loud metallic "pop" when I put a medium amount of downward pressure on a pedal, especially the left pedal, for some reason. I replaced the original pedals, as one had gone bad and the "pop"...

    Battery Tray for RadCity 2019 48V pack

    Probably a substantial space limitation. Maybe they live in a small apartment, with no garage.

    Friend considering a used '18 Rad Rover. What is diff from the '19 model?

    I believe the link on Amazon you have posted is for the 2018 freewheel, correct? I do remember that my 2019 model has an 11-34 freewheel, and it was touted as "new for 2019". So, the rear taillight was powered by AA batteries or something? Did the 2018 use the same Shimano derailleur line? The...

    Battery Tray for RadCity 2019 48V pack

    I think that's the 110.00 option that they are disdaining as too expensive.

    What about the wheel bearings in a Rad Rover?

    How does one go about taking this front assembly apart and lubricating it? I have the wheel off and have removed the rubber cups over the nuts.

    What about the wheel bearings in a Rad Rover?

    What kind of grease did you use? Standard automotive wheel bearing grease? Something lighter duty?
