If your levelers when applied are close to the handles, you may need adjusting or replacing or just bleeding.  I just replaced my pads but I had plenty of pad left.  But once I replaced them they were good as new.  So I kept the old for another repair. 

I don't know which pads the City 5 has but my 2 bikes use the same Tektro p20:11 stock or e10:11. In the US you can get 2 sets of the p20:11 for $20 US delivered off ebay.

If you take them one set out you will know what you have.

FYI most of your stopping power comes from the front brake and they typically wear faster.

Nice. So I would imagine that the majority of the original stock parts have been upgraded?

Pride & Joy / 2017 Rad Rover Makeover

This started out as a white Rad Rover, I did the usual mods over the years, last year I did it over completely. Last summer I bought a Rover 5 that was flooded by Hurricane Ian. It's in the process of going back together, waiting on a couple parts.

Quote from: hughes200 on July 17, 2024, 04:51:57 PMI shorted out the battery on the RadRover6 by inadvertently trying to put the key in the charging port.  I followed the directions to replace the fuse but ended up destroying the battery.  Does anyone other than Rad sell this exact battery?

Thanks

As a single unit maybe the battery is non-functional but as individual cells I think those batteries are still good. Use them as spare parts. Or sell it, there is still value on it.

I noticed that it looked like there is very little room inside the battery enclosure but I wonder if securing a circuit breaker with a heavy duty glue and drilling a small window to reset possible? Of course I would not do this on a good battery.

This mishap happened so frequently I am also wondering if scanning a key is feasible. I do not know much about 3D printing but maybe having a non-conducting key helps to prevent accidental shorting.

RadCity / hydrolic brake pads specificat...
Last post by bananamax - Today at 03:00:02 AM
Hi!

I own a Rad City 5 plus step thru for 1 year.
I has now 1500km; using it in urban roads with a lot of up and downhills (I live in Marseille, south of France:nice hilly area!).
I had a battery problem after 4 months of use. I was fixed by a repair store and I asked them to check the rear brake system because it began to be very loose: the bled it and it was fixed.
Now the brakes  are bigining to be loose in a different way: they brake but very softly or after a couple of times.
So I am looking forward to change the hydrolic brake pads, and them check if it needs to be bled.
But I am not used to hydrolic brakes.
I am not sure if there is a particular reference of brake pads?


Thank you for your help!

I had one come loose today on my Rad Runner 2.  Luckily I was on the train.  It goes to show you should check your forks before you ride. When I went to leave the train as normal this occurred. In my case one side of the tire came out  of the fork and was binding against the fender, so I could not move the bike with the front wheel down.  I hope this does not happen while I am riding.  I will be checking the tension of the clamp before I ride each time and make sure the wheel is seated properly. The clamp looks like it just came loose.  It was almost like someone loosened it on purpose. This was a little disconcerting to say the least.

I don't think so.  But there are battery repair places.  search online.  I know one in california and another in colorado.

Fildena might or might not work for some men. Try, Tadacip medication as it has more effects than Fildena. Tadacip 20 mg is a palliative way of treating Erectile Dysfunction (ED). It contains tadalafil as an active ingredient. Therefore, it is the generic version of Cialis. It is highly effective at offering stronger and durable erection to men who suffer from ED.
