    Locktite Blue tastes good !!!

    Some silliness !! I used Blue on the bolts before tightening and put the Blue cap in my mouth to keep from loosing it. It really has a great taste.

    Front Brake squeel-solved !

    After assembly, my front brake was rubbing. I did all the suggestions,ie: Loosen the bolts and squeeze the brake, tighten, etc. The tiny 2"X2" square piece of paper that explained how to install a washer was difficult to read. I got serious and looked at the back brake. There were 2 washers...

    I broke my battery !!!

    I've had my 700 4 days. I prefer charging indoors. Two days ago, I dropped my battery on the garage floor and the knob on the top got moved. I'm in contact with R1U about a fix. The bike is not usable. It's my fault. I did not try to B.S. R1U that it was there fault. I fessed up right...

    700 scheduled to arrive Monday. re,Spokes!

    Almost hope the spokes are loose! So I can use my new ZTTO spoke tension meter from AliExpress. Seriously, I like "measured" adjustments, rather than "plunking". This will be the first bike that I'm going to pay xtra attention to maintenance. The weight and torque, I expect will put, serious...

    Has anyone refused a FedX bike?

    How can you make FedX pay for damage? Haven't heard of anyone refusing a shipment when there's obvious damage.. Wonder what recourse we have.. It's not right to expect R1U to fix damaged shipments.

    Too much time on my hands while waiting for my 700 ! Have purchased a mirror, bell, lock, front wheel bag and a spoke tensor from Aliexpress. Looked at their panniers but couldn't tell about the quality. Glad I stuck with R1U. The panniers are of good quality, each side will accept a...

    Has anyone bought/used a spoke tension tool?

    Park has one for $80. I'd probably buy a chinese knockoff for $20. R1U does list the tension for all the spokes. Just wonder if this method is a good way to test tension?

    What does MECH mean in bike terms?

    I really did do a search on Google and didn't get an answer. Is it slang for "mechanical"? I think it's used when referring to the derrailuer?

    Anyone know your nipple size?

    Getting ready for my R1U 700 to arrive and want to be ready if a spoke or 2 needs tightening. I was able to keep my MTB and Cyclocross rims perfect so I have no hesitation to take care of them. I don't want to buy a multi tool. I prefer one size only. Can anyone answer the question?

    eBike reviews? Who do you believe?

    EBR posts the best eBike of all is the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 EQ @ $3500. ByWays bike review claims the R1U 500 is the best. On paper the Specialized doesn't come close to the R1U 700 specs at double the price. And it's ugly! Is the Specialized better because of real quality...
