    What's your farthest ride on your Radrover?

    Nice setup, @mrgold35, that might be exactly what I am looking for. I like the idea of being able to put additional items like maybe insulation material or hand warmers in that pack to keep the battery in good operational temps. Does it hinder the removal process for the battery?

    What's your farthest ride on your Radrover?

    Got mine up and running this past weekend. Commuted in to work today from Dulles to DC, 29 miles. Plenty of uphills along the way, hit a max elevation of 467ft, those of you familiar with Arlington, before you get into DC, that zone is a battery killer. But I managed to do this at PAS 3 and at...

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    (Update) Got my new controller this past week, thanks RPB! Installed it this weekend and am back on the road, racking up the miles. Installing the controller was a cinch, once you find out how to get to one of the internally routed wires. All you have to do is turn the handle bar to the right...

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    Walawn, I don't think it is the battery, it turns on when off the bike. The LED's light up all the way blue while the top most bar is red. I have a good hunch that it is most likely the controller. But am going to wait on RPB's response before I decide to take anything apart.

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    Ann M., I spent a week before riding, ensuring all the mechanical components were good to go, which includes the derailleur and brakes. The rear caliper was rubbing quite a bit at first so I adjusted the gap to the point where the rear wheel ran freely without contact from the brake pads. The...

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    I wish the issue with my bike would be just the battery, but I am afraid this might be a little more complex. Since the battery seems to be showing full charge on the LED readout. It shines blue when you turn it on, uninstalled. But as soon as I install it on the bike, it won't turn on. I am...

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    Will definitely post what the issue was, Vincent. Maybe even start a 'sticky' thread as a go to, for new owners, so they know what to do outside of the normal debugging suggested by RPB. Sent them an email this morning describing the issue, hopefully this gets resolved quick.

    2016 Radrover just stopped after 4 miles??

    Got my 2016 last week, waited a week to ensure all mechanical components were working good. Took the maiden voyage this weekend and it zonked out in 4 miles. The battery won't turn on, let alone hitting 'mode' to turn on. I did notice however the controller was warm to the touch when it stopped...

    Question for the Felt Lebowske owners

    What speed are you seeing per PAS level, their website does not post that info. Also what kind of terrain are you riding on to achieve those speeds. I am assuming, most who purchased this bike, did so for dirt trail riding. Thanks.

    Hello from Everywhere! Friends and Visits?

    Court, I really appreciate you creating this site and forum, I was lost trying to figure what is what in the e-bike world. I am an avid MTB/Road biker myself, and was initially a little intimidated to venture into the e-bike world since being on the east coast. The market is just waking up to...

    Hello from DC

    Chris Nolte, The mid-drive preference seems to be the go to, for e-bikes since you mentioned Bosch. I am still old school on that, I like the rear hub setup. Now if I was MTBn then I would definitely go for the mid-drive. In fact I recently test drove the 'Outfitter' by Felt, it was a blast...

    Hello from DC

    Hi all, new to the e-bike world, looking for a long distance daily commuter. Still deciding on which brand and type of bike to commit to. I currently ride my road bike to work and back, 40 mile round trip. I figure in purchasing an e-bike I would get a couple days off with a little e-assistance...
