Someone has opened one up and said the magnets were loose and needed regluing.  It is a recent post but not on a Rover 5. 

Too bad with low mileage you are experiencing the problem. 
Those motors are good for at lease 16k km or 10k miles.

My motor has over time developed a rumbling noise that also vibrates up through the seat post. Has anyone tried to take these apart to repair them? or am I faced with sourcing a complete new wheel from Rad? Bike has 6,000Kms on OD.

I love it, 67 yr old man here, getting on a bike again. I play golf and pickleball and never would have thought about buying a bicycle for exercise but that's what I ended up doing.  I don't use the throttle other than crossing or entering busy streets and stop lights and I get a great workout. I stay in PA 3 unless I have a grade I am traversing. I only have a 100 miles on her it's been rainy here but I have no complaints so far.

Radster Road / Re: Radster Road Review
Last post by inoxa - July 11, 2024, 11:10:42 AM
The ebike market seems to be saturating now.  Holding off might get you a better deal in a year or so.  The used market is getting dirt cheap.

Also the issue now - batteries have a higher import tax from China.  So that might not allow prices to lower much.

This new bike is obviously intended as an improvement over the City, and I was curious how much lighter it would be than my behemoth. Answer: It's about 10 pounds heavier! WTF?

which one is heavier?

You might consult with Area13.  They are a good source of information and may have what you are looking for.  Not sure they will have a better price.  I would call or email Area13 and see what your options are.  They do have a 1000 watt motor that might work. 

Maybe a bike shop can lace your current motor on a rim they stock.

RadWagon / Replace Rear Wheel on Radwagon...
Last post by okobojicat - July 11, 2024, 08:19:24 AM
I'm not sure what I hit, but rim on my rad wagon 4 is quite impacted. Its now blown out two tubes and cut through two tires. Got a quote from Rad for $350 for a new wheel + motor assembly. They indicated I can't purchase the wheel separate from the motor.
Has anyone had any luck doing that? Or acquiring a rim elsewhere? I'm assuming buying the front wheel and sticking the motor on there and hoping it works ok is a bad solution right? And I'm not skilled enough as a mechanic to do that anyway.
Basically, any thoughts on doing something besides replacing entire rim and motor?

Cenforce 100mg is a highly effective medication used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) and enhance sexual performance in men. The active ingredient is sildenafil citrate, which belongs to a class of drugs called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. Cenforce 100 mg works by increasing blood flow to the penis, allowing men to achieve and maintain firmer erections during sexual stimulation.
Clinical studies have shown Cenforce 100mg to significantly improve measures of erectile function, sexual satisfaction, and quality of life for men with ED. The recommended dosage is typically 50mg or 100mg, taken about an hour before planned sexual activity. When used as directed by a healthcare provider, Cenforce D can help men regain confidence and enjoy a more fulfilling intimate life by overcoming the challenges of erectile dysfunction.

Quote from: inoxa on July 06, 2024, 02:56:46 PMIf it isn't a new bike then you could consider a new controller upgrade.  It will boost your speed some and add torque.  It will come with one color display to replace the 2 displays you have now. 

Area13 or electro bike world will carry it. 

this is probably the next step for me and my 2 1/2 year old RR6+. just added a second battery (not running in tandem), so now need to determine which controller i like better.
