    Uh, it works fine on my two 2020 Rad City & 2020 Rad Rover bikes. My bike will give PAS right up to 24.8 mph, then will restrict speed. And when I put it into PAS 0 or 1, I can pedal over 24.8 mph and get speed up to 27 - 28 mph.

    Don't know where you're located, but in St.Louis, MO we have lots of great places to ride.

    On the Rad display, you can hold the up/down buttons together, then access the menu to change wheel size and increase max. kph from 32 to 40 kph. This will allow the Rad to give PAS up to 25 mph = 40 kph. That's about all you can do on a stock Rad.

    RadCity tire change to 4" Fats

    Sorry that your experience isn't as good as mine. Proper brake lever adjustment is key and when you have a 2 mile uphill to escape the river bottom, having 3 bars is comforting. I wonder what "negative impacts" you are referring to?

    RadCity tire change to 4" Fats

    We have two Rad City, a ST and a reg. frame, also I have a Rad Rover 5. I can tell you, at least from my experience, Re-Gen does work. It can take you from as little as 1 or 2 bars, up to 3 or 4 bars...if done properly. It's a skill that can lengthen a ride. Or at least keep the fear of...

    Rad City Chainring advice to increase top speed! Help Please!

    Thanks EBJ for the advice. I did order a 130 BCD 44 tooth chainring, but it was smaller (outside diameter) than the current 130 BCD 42 tooth chainring on my Rad City. I've been looking for a 130 BCD 44 or 46 tooth chainring that will allow me to pedal at a slower cadence (80 - 95 rpm) and...

    Rad City Chainring advice to increase top speed! Help Please!

    That is exactly what I made this post about. The stock 42 tooth chainring, that used to be 46 tooth, is not allowing me to spin in 6th or 7th gear.

    I Messed Up... and Now I Own an eBike

    I tested a Specialized Vado prior to buying my two Rad City E-bikes. What a great bike. smooth and fast. Very intuitive in operation. But, I did get two Rad Power Bikes for the price of one Vado. A really, nice bike! congratulations.

    This has been a great adventure. This bike has gotten me off my butt and back in the saddle. Thank you Rad and all the good people here at EBR. Your support means a lot. Rode the 12 miles to work today. Great roads here near St.Louis. my new office buddy!

    Bike riding etiquette

    Maybe they're jealous! I get a lot of stares at my rear hub motor, but I always wave two fingers at least, and nod. Say "Hi". I do seem to be the only person that rings my bell when coming up on others in the lane and always say "On Your Left!" before I pass. I don't hear anyone else use this...

    Rad City Chainring advice to increase top speed! Help Please!

    Today in PAS 2 and occ. 3, I could actually feel the motor kicking in and resisting my effort to increase my cadence. Right at 25 mph. When I took it to PAS 1, resistance ceased. I felt that I could pedal faster without much effort, but was stymied by the motor. Have you ever been in too low of...

    Rad City Chainring advice to increase top speed! Help Please!

    So, the 130 BCD 44 tooth chainring arrived yesterday. Too small. I think it's a 140 BCD 44 tooth chainring I'm needing. Time to return and re order! I'll let ya know how it works out. Today, my 24 mile jaunt, at 25 mph in 7th gear PAS 2, the motor controller kept kicking in to slow me down...

    Rad City Chainring advice to increase top speed! Help Please!

    Controller is set at 40 kph. Not reluctant to use PAS 3 or 4 for that matter, I want to lower my pedal cadence and maintain or improve speed. When I know I can pedal faster, but the motor is resisting me, it's a problem. If I could remove the limit regulator from the controller, I would. I'll...

    I ordered a 130 BCD - 5 bolt 44 tooth chainring, Valuta. I'll let you know what I find our after I put it on this weekend! This AM on my commute, I was feeling motor resistance at 24.7 mph, 7th gear, going down an incline. Was trying to get up the next hill without going to PAS 2 or 3...
