    Rad City top speed after adjustment?

    The Rad City has 40 lbs of torque, where the Rover has 80lbs, so twice as much. You can easily start from a stop using only the throttle on the City even on a slight incline, it is nice to get you going. Having a 672wh battery, if you were going all out you would get about 1 hour, but even all...

    Rad City top speed after adjustment?

    That is sort of what I was wonder, if the stock controller was limiting the top speed or voltage to the motor and if the Bolton controller would allow a higher voltage to the motor. From what I have seen and read the Bolton controller lets more wattage (amperage) through to the motor, but most...

    Rad City top speed after adjustment?

    I have had the Rad City for about a year now and it has been great. I did the top speed adjustment about a month after I had it and that was great. The thing I wonder is often when I am riding now I will be at the 750 watts to get up to speed but as I pass 20 mph the wattage tapers off. Am I...

    Mirrors for my Rad Mini Step Thru (handlebar size)

    I will third the mirrycle above. Unfortunately I tried three other mirrors before getting the mirrycle. It is by far the best most stable with just the right shape of the mirror. Some I had were flat mirrors, way to small field of view, some were huge and a car 2 cars back looked like an ant...

    Yup I have centered it and figured that part out after 2 or 3 times :) Hopefully it is just a centering thing, but now if I can build a shiv adjuster I will be all set :)

    wait, wait wait.... what. I have been taking the brake off adjust it a little and putting it back on, try it again and repeating, which is a pain in itself as the you can't get an allen wrench in line with the bracket. So let me get this straight, you cut off a bit of the allen wrench and...

    2019 Rad Mini Speed Settings

    Setting that up to 40 kph sets the top speed the controller will let the motor get up to, it won't affect the speedometer, just actual top speed.

    52 v 14S battery?

    I like the relay idea. Does anyone know what voltage the 2019 are running the headlight and tail light at?

    52 v 14S battery?

    See your making me want it even more, the time I notice the soft start is at our driveway. It is on a nice incline and I stop to grab the mail and then I only have one hand free to twist the throttle, but it just won't make it up the small incline without pedaling, which is a pain. As soon as...

    52 v 14S battery?

    I just read that controller thread, lot of great info in there. It makes me think even more that swapping out the controller is the way to go. I am ok with the power of the Rad City, I just wish for instance I could set it to 300 watts or 400 watts and don't limit based on speed via the...

    52 v 14S battery?

    Wow lots of video's, I think I watched a few of them when I was initially looking. I didn't realize how "fixed" the rad controller was. I suppose it makes sense and it works as is. I also have never felt the motor even be warm running for a while, I believe the larger hub motors are better...

    52 v 14S battery?

    Has anyone tried running a Rad City (or other Rad) on a 52v battery? Would the motor and controller be fine with that extra voltage? I really notice on a fresh charge in PAS 3, I see 400 watts after 10 minutes I see 300 w and loose a bar. I am assuming this is just the voltage dropping to the...

    2019 Rad Mini Speed Settings

    I played with this on the Rad City, changing the tire size affects the reported speed on the display but doesn't change the "top" speed at all. I tried all the tire sizes figuring I would live with a wrong speedo if I got another couple of mph, but no such luck. So I set it back to stock which...

    battery charger plug size?

    I did get an amazon charger https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SLWTVK2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with the 5.5 x 2.1 size and it works. I noticed in the reviews someone with a Rad City had been using one for a while. I wish I had seen those 5.5 x 2.1 extensions :) I did...

    battery charger plug size?

    I got a Rad City and really like it. Where I park the bike it is not next to a wall and I would like to extend the wire between the charger and the bike so the power brick isn't hanging in the air or lying on the ground next to the bike. I am very familiar with wiring. What I am wondering is...
