So, the stalls and adventures so far. Started out with no charge batt, but work out good cause I got upgraded up to 17ah at no charge, BIG Kudos to the folks at Glarewheel. Bike got knock down by our famous Ohio 30mph wind gust, bent chainring and derailleur, chainring not so made about cause the upgraded to 52t was in the works, the derailleur on the other hand, cost $30+, but now with new chairing and derailleur the Cheetah is in a strong prowl. Next had to be seat, I picked up the senior citizens cloud C9 along with a zoom seat post,my buttocks thanks me everyday😁. Fenders and rear rack got installed, now tweaking a cheap set of panniers, maybe sometime next week they be on. Next project are brake/turn signals and maybe a couple other small changes. Now for the charger question, I know that the charge that comes with the Cheetah is a pos ( or so I been told),anyone with any suggestions , comments, insight to share with me would be appreciated. Thank You...here are a few pics of my cheetah, no wow factor, just plain Jane cheetah...

Hi JesPin0803, glad to have you and welcome to the Cheetah Forum.
Sorry to hear about your ride getting blown over by the strong winds. My Cheetah took off all by itself one time when I pulled over to repair it when it threw the chain off!! I went to place the chain back onto the chain ring without turning the bike off and it thought I was peddling. It ghost rode without me for about 5 feet and crashed hard into some thorn filled cactus and scratched her up a bit but no other damage. Note to self! Always turn off the power when working on your e-bike…
With regards to the charger, I’ve owned mine going on two years and still have not had any issues with the bike or it’s charger so I can’t help ya there. I did buy a senior citizens seat and mounted it to a suspension seat post cause...well, I am a senior citizen!! Lol and loving every minute.
Ride safe and enjoy the ride!

Wow, I would had been scare to get back on ,it thinking something paranormal was going on Mr. Miyagi.
by letting me know you have had yours that long without problem, is help, so thank you.
your right rich, when I installed the c9 and zoom seat post, I was tweaking it to get a good siting position, I kept on telling myself that I was going to fix after getting back from riding , but I was to lazy, but thank you, by bringing it up motivated me to finally fix.

Got 203mm rear rotor last week w/ wrong adapter, still made work. Ordered 203mm front w/ adapter along with the right rear adapter, very disappointed with both when needed to add four washers to make it work, Im 99.9 % that the adapters are installed correctly, going to work on them as I think they look like Honey Sugar Ice Tea with so many washers..

Got my tire today, I order two on the 17th, on sale for $26 and some change. On the 18th something told me to write email and ask if they had the tires in stock and how long before they ship out. In email, I was informed they only had one in stock and I had 3 choices, 1. Full refund, 2. Get one tire and refund second, and 3. Purchase the same tire except that it was for a folding bike and cost almost $60. I decide to get the one tire. That Saturday I called and told them to ship me the one tire, and since they were closed on Monday I had to wait till Tuesday for them to ship it out. Now, I’m glad I went with the one tire, got it today and I had it mounted in about 15 minutes, went for a ride and it was a lot quitter and I can feel less drag, and even though I don’t have my fender on ( in process of wrap) I like the look.

So I tried the T-shirt trick except w/an old bandanna my daughter gave and this is the results. I thought I had enough for both sides, but I came up short. I’ll be shopping for a new one and cross my fingers I can find the same pattern

Working on lights, this will be the brake/rear/ turn signals. Next week I’ll be purchasing the brake switch along with on-off/turn signals switch mounted on handlebars. Also purchasing the same hydrographic films that took me a sheet to figure out what I was doing wrong. Keeping my fingers on getting it right. The one on forks is see/hear/speak no evil and the one on fender is a veteran skulls
