    Upper Speed Limit of Rad Runner 1?

    I ordered my Rad Runner 1 with the optional LCD display. I reset the top speed to 40 kph (24 mph ). However the motor still cuts off pedal assist at 20 mph (32 kph ). Is this unique to the Rad Runner 1?

    Rad Wagon and direct drive fearless motor concerns
