    Radrover Beast finally finished! After all summer...

    Hey guys. I know I've been MIA for a while. I just got my bike back last night after a prolonged stay at my LBS with fork and wheel issues. I took it in to install a direct bikes solid front fork and get some Origin8 Supercell tires mounted. Well, the tech got a little overzealous and cut the...

    An update on my life: BBSHD 52V Radrover & "Frankenbike"

    Hey guys! I know I've been quiet for about a week. That's because I've been working on my bike, and now, bikes plural. Last Friday I took apart my Radrover by removing the controller, battery, mounting plate, brake levers, throttle, cranks, and bottom bracket. That Saturday morning I installed...

    Changing the 48V dolphin battery case on the Radrover. Step by step.

    Ok, so as some of you who follow this forum may know, the first week I had my new Radrover I was an idiot. I went out for a multi-hour afternoon ride and didn't lock my battery onto the frame with the key. Of course it wasn't until the last few miles that I hit a bump that sent it flying off the...

    stock battery charger

    I have a question for you guys. How hot does your stock Radrover charger get? My gets so hot that you can't hold it in your hand. There is no determinable change in temperature of my battery while it is charging. It just takes hours to charge; that's all. I'm hoping that I don't have an issue...

    battery case

    So I went out for a half day ride today. On the way back I hit a bump and WHAM, my battery came flying off the bike and bounced/slid down the asphalt trail I was on. Scratched all to hell and back. I rode for hours without realizing that I failed to lock it down with the key. I slide it back in...
