I was disappointed yesterday to discover that my front fork was bent during shipping and I was unable to install the front wheel. I was excited the bike arrived on Friday instead of Monday and was looking forward to having it built over the weekend. On Friday I discovered that the stem had a hole not tapped properly and was unable to install the handle bars. Rad Power is sending a new stem. I have written about the bent fork but have not had a response due to it being the weekend. My question is with the cables routed the way they are I am not sure how I would remove then to install a new fork? The cable from the left grip passes through a metal tube (stay) that is welded to the frame. I don't see a way to pull the cable through the tube if it was disconnected and I would be concerned about messing up any adjustment if I were to take it apart, The cable was routed incorrectly also and would not run in a straight line but had been routed under the frame. I am sure radpower will take care of things but I have a medical procedure on Wednesday and am traveling for a week next week. I have a friend and his son purchasing these bikes after hearing about mine and they call me daily to see how the build is going. I broke the bad news to my friend yesterday and he was disappointed to hear about the issues. The good news is my battery is fully charged! The damage occurred during shipping. I had read of someone else having this shipping issue also but figured it probably wouldn't happen to mine. The bike passed through 9 cities enroute to me which may account for the damage. The shipping package is not very substantial and they really need to think about changing this in the future. The bike looks terrific and I am excited about getting it on the road.
