    Should I change my Bafang control display

    I'm a young 70 year old and I added a bafang kit to my Terratrike rambler and it works very well. I was advised to get the 500c color display. I'm having difficulty seeing much in direct sunlight, as I see others also have with this. I can see the power setting and have lived with this. I...

    Proper ebike mechanical and emotor use when riding

    So, I had a bafang front motor kit installed on my sisters bike, and she is asking about how to ride it. She has the mechanical gears of course, and now has a number of levels of assist, plus the throttle. What do most people do on this? Of course just using throttle is not what she really...

    My wife’s mini step thru Brake levers are a problem. She says that the brake lever reach is not comfortable for her smaller hands. Is there an adjustment here that I could do, to bring the lever closer to the handlebar? Thanks

    Rad mini step thru seat post adjustment

    We just bought two rad minis. I’ve assembled both and love them. I am 5’8 and I have the post adjusted right up to the line. Then it says (Warning-dont raise higher or something to that effect). I could use about another inch higher adjustment. There is a lot of tubing still in the frame...

    Rad mini assembly question concerning front wheel

    I have my bike assembled and didn’t have much difficulty. This is my first ebike btw. I put the front wheel on and cannot get it to spin freely. Now, when that happened with all my previous bikes with quick release, when that happened, it meant I had tightened it down too much. That’s not...
