    E3 Dash Battery No Longer Holding Optimal Charge

    Thanks for all of your help, you guys. I ended up biting the bullet and ordering a new battery. And even though my battery was past the one year warranty of about two months, the dealer was able to give me a price break on shipping and taxes. He contacted Chawn Weingarten, whom I had already...

    E3 Dash Battery No Longer Holding Optimal Charge

    Ann M., Thanks for your response. The shop where I bought my bike is inept at handling these types of issues. They just sell the bikes. They don't service them and are not up to snuff on how to fix them. And being that they are fifty miles away, I just don't deal with them anymore. And besides...

    E3 Dash Battery No Longer Holding Optimal Charge

    I have a 2014 E3 Dash that I purchased in August of 2014. Has anyone experienced seeing only 4 bars after charging their battery. I use to get about 18 miles using assist levels 1-3, more if just using level 1. But now I get only around 13 miles. I have charged this battery over the past year...

    second battery

    This Leed frame bag works fine for me for storing my second battery. Plus, it allows one to put the battery where it belongs, at the bike’s center of gravity; which is one of the reasons why we bought these bikes in the first place. I have to put the battery in sideways in order for it to fit...

    Upgraded to a 2015 E3 Dash

    HumanitiesHaze, I am aware of your motor and BBS problems on your 2014 Dash, which I too had and, as you know, I have since fixed, but has there been anything else that you have had issues with that we are not aware of, and would cause you to upgrade to a 2015? I am now very happy with my...

    Trip Odometer Resetting Itself on 2014 Dash?

    Have some of you ever wondered why your trip odometer zeros-out after the display times-out and after having also pressed the battery button in order to turn your bike back on? Well, your bike was never “off.” It went into what is called “sleep mode.” It does this after five minutes of no use...

    CurrieTech - How to adjust Dash rear brake??

    It never ceases to amaze me the info we can gather here on this forum with regards to our E3 Dash bikes. I just recently encountered the need for the adjustment of my rear brake pad after having already exhausted the cable adjustments. With no other solution in sight, I removed my rear wheel...

    drag in dash rear wheel

    I am wondering if it could still be due to some magnetism in the motor going on when spinning freely while the power is turned off, kind of like the cogging effect that we experience while freewheeling with the power on? But we definitely do not feel this "cogging" effect while riding the bike...

    drag in dash rear wheel

    I too have the same effect on my 2014 Dash model when spinning it on the rack, even with the new and improved rear hub motor. At first I thought it was the disc brake rubbing, but when I checked that it was fine. Doesn’t seem to pose a problem for me though. But I am wondering if the slight drag...

    With a Path+ step-thru you do not need to worry about the inseam. There is no top tube to worry about.

    Dash Seems Perfect - Except for that high top bar

    PowerMe, You can’t go wrong with Currie. It’s the shops that I question. All things bicycles, and just about any shop can help you. It’s just the ebikes that most shops are not up to par with. Even an authorized Currie dealer doesn’t guarantee you that they will know how to fix your bike. Like...

    Dash Seems Perfect - Except for that high top bar

    PowerMe, Don't always trust the shops to help you in a bind when it comes to these kind of bikes. Unless they are more specifically geared to electric bikes, they do not have a clue on what they are doing. You will end up having to do the service yourself. Trust me, I just encountered this...

    DASH Commuting Report - 1 Month & 600 miles (long post)

    I agree with you, Shea, that it is not the "beast" I am riding when in PAS zero. The "force" that it takes to pedal in that mode is much more noticeable. I will think more about the traffic and/or obstacles when riding to see if that has anything to do with this. I too have thought about maybe...

    DASH Commuting Report - 1 Month & 600 miles (long post)

    Pace, I am glad (somewhat) that you mentioned you were experiencing sometimes pulsating (almost like a surging of the power) in and out while pedaling, and also "resistance" while yet the pedal assist is still delivering power. I thought that this was another problem that was only peculiar to my...

    In the beginning, and desire...

    With standard delivery FedEx delivers in 1-2 business days, depending on where you live in relation to where the package is being delivered from. I am on the West coast, and so is Currie, so it arrived within this time frame. You can track your package with the tracking number assigned to you.

    Blown motor on E3 Dash with 29 miles on it

    I told everyone that I would let them know how I am doing once my new replacement motor came shipped to me. It is now installed and working fine on my bike (an installation that anyone can do themselves with the proper tools). All you have to do is switch over the brake rotor, tire and tube, and...

    Blown motor on E3 Dash with 29 miles on it

    No. Even though he had the serial #, it ended up really being based on photos of stickers on my hub I emailed to him.

    New Dash, some problems (update: fixed after brake lever adjustment)

    The problem with my BB sensor has been resolved, at least for now. Please see my notes under: Blown Motor on E3 Dash with 29 Miles On It.

    Blown motor on E3 Dash with 29 miles on it

    Hi everyone. I am happy to announce that the replacement BB sensor sent to me by Chawn at Currie Tech, and for which I INSTALLED THIS TIME AROUND, is working absolutely perfect. This replacement BB sensor seems to be working better than even the one that originally came with the bike (not to say...

    Blown motor on E3 Dash with 29 miles on it

    Thanks, HH. And, thanks, Currie Tech member. You have answered my question on what I am to do to keep the BBTS from moving while torquing down the caps? By the way, HH, do you apply an additional 3-4 foot lbs of torque on both sides? And this question is for the Currie Tech: Didn't you mean to...
