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.

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

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.

There was a post titled Replacing the chainring that has photos you might find helpful. Also I went on Youtube and found a guy that demonstrated how to change chain rings on regular bicycle. I am sure it's no different for the ebikes.

Quote from: inoxa on July 17, 2024, 07:57:02 AMAfter reading your problem again, I think it is the connections on the battery and battery cradle.  Since you have 2000 miles, you probably have a City 3....just a guess.  So it is similar to my Rover 5.  The wiring in the cradle is very thin and mine melted the wiring.  The battery wiring is beefier.  I had to replace both sides because of a slightly different version and the old didn't fit the new. 

open the little box on the cradle.  I think it is only 2 Phillips screws.  You should know immediately if it is the wiring problem.  You will notice melted insulation around the wiring.

I agree with your statement. 2000 miles could have loosen some of the connections or exposed (shorting) some wiring that may be causing the intermittent issues that Willie described. I think an end to end inspection of the wiring system is a good call.

That really sucks that no one answered your question because I have the same issue and have searched for days for an answer. I should have taken a picture first.

This wiring issue may be it. Battery is ok but when i drop it in my Rad City 4 there is no power, even the battery will not give me a reading, today i pulled up just a little from connecting and the battery is reading charged up. This wiring may be the problem. Sometimes i can go and sometimes not. Thank you gentlemen i will let you know i make out.

They do own the roads. With those outfit, they get to their destinations a lot faster.
