    Should I change my Bafang control display

    I'm a young 70 year old and I added a bafang kit to my Terratrike rambler and it works very well. I was advised to get the 500c color display. I'm having difficulty seeing much in direct sunlight, as I see others also have with this. I can see the power setting and have lived with this. I...

    Proper ebike mechanical and emotor use when riding

    So, I had a bafang front motor kit installed on my sisters bike, and she is asking about how to ride it. She has the mechanical gears of course, and now has a number of levels of assist, plus the throttle. What do most people do on this? Of course just using throttle is not what she really...

    wheel size help

    My sister owns a 2015 women's Trek Verve 3 bike. We want to surprise her with a bafang emotor kit, but I'm unsure of her wheel size. I'm given the choice of 26, 27 or 29 inches. She might have a 700c... Which wheel size should we pick? I don't want to call and ask her obviously. I could...

    Rad mini handlebar potentially loose

    The handlebar can rotated with respect to the front tire. The screws seem to be torqued properly but are not clamping hard enough to prevent rotation. Check it by holding your front wheel between your knees and try to rotate the handlebar while keeping the wheel straight. I had my two bolts...

    Rad mini step thru seat post adjustment

    I’ve decided to upgrade to the Suntour 27.2/400. I see that it is available on eBay for about $93, from some place in Missouri. Any opinions on buying it here?

    Brake lever reach adjustment?

    I ended up loosing the handlebar and twisting toward the rider, thus presenting the brakes differently.. She seems okay with that..

    Helmet comms

    That is what I ended up thinking as well. When we ride, I always end up a bit ahead and turn around to see where she is. I ordered some Sena R1 helmets last night. All reviews say they are pretty good. We will see...

    Helmet comms

    When we ride together it’s really tough to talk back and forth. I did a general search and saw helmets with mic and speakers built in . One company mentioned was Sena. Has anyone used a helmet system and have any recommendations?

    Brake lever reach adjustment?

    My wife’s mini step thru Brake levers are a problem. She says that the brake lever reach is not comfortable for her smaller hands. Is there an adjustment here that I could do, to bring the lever closer to the handlebar? Thanks

    Rad mini step thru seat post adjustment

    Well, for the short term I’m holding off on a new post and seat. I removed the seat from our trek tandem and put it on the rad post. The seat gave me the extra small height I needed for now. The seat is cushier and with the larger height rails, I gained over an inch.
