There are so called bar extenters on Amazon, eBay etc.

I'm planning to buy one for my RadRhino.
Rad Modifications / C965 display on RadRunner
« Last post by Kevin Turtle on May 24, 2020, 07:18:37 AM »
I just got a RadRunner and I'm looking to upgrade the display. I'm in Canada, RPB is sold out of displays and almost all other accessories, plus our prices are much higher. $172.00 for a display.
My question is, has anyone here successfully used the Bafang C965 display. I believe it looks the same as the one RPB sells. Perhaps only the name is different?
Are there any other displays people have successfully used on the Runner. Thanks in advance
My answer to almost any question about a bicycle repairing and maintenance is Youtube ;)

OK, that makes sense, but how do you use it? Does just go around the rim before the tube and tire go on the rim?

Exactly like that.
Rad Modifications / Rockbros handlebar bag on redmini

Hi! This is my first post here, forgive me if I made it in the wrong category.
I've just bought my radmini 4 and I'm looking for something where I can place my phone and a few other small things while I'm riding. I like to have the phone where I can see it so I can use it for navigation.

So I found this, which seems perfect:

Except that the radmini doesn't really have a long stem and the display/controller sits right there in the middle. So my concern is that I won't be able to place this in the handle appropriately and it will slide downwards with the weight of the bag contents.

Does anyone have this on a similar handle or have a suggestion for a similar bag that supports seeing the phone? It doesn't have to allow using the phone as I will always stop if I need to use it, so I can take it out of the bag if needed, but I'd like to be able to see it.

Thank you all, in advance.

I just installed my kit a few days ago. Curious if you figured out what settings you liked. Do you feel like you have dialed it in yet? Still trying to get my P2 correct for proper speed. 4/5/6 do not work. Still need to test out the others. Glad I found your post. Looking forward to your reply.

That is called a rim strip or rim tape. Protects the inner tube from the spokes. There are no dumb questions here and welcome to the forum  8)
Service & Repair / Re: RadMini Throttle Not working correctly.

Just an update. I took the grip and the throttle off. After working the throttle a little it did start to spring back but very slowly. The bike is still under warranty. Rad have asked me to send them a video of the problem and they will process a replacement if needed.

The RW4 is 3-4 lbs. heavier than previous model yet it's two plus inches lower, smaller wheels,and no running boards. I wonder why that is. The smaller22" wheels on a heavy cargo bike seem too small esp. when going over potholes,curbs,etc.  And  a trigger  or twist shifter would be welcome- thumb shifters are harder to operate for me. Also,for such a heavy e bike Rad needs to bump up the ah s on the battery to give more range- say 17  or 21 ah s .   On the other hand,it's nice that Rad continually improves their models. Looking forward to seeing what else they have to offer us Rad riders.  My first post- I hope I didn't mess up on my first post- ever!

I'm awaiting shipment on the RadCity Step-Thru that is due to ship end of June. Meantime, I'm buying some tools and accessories just so I'll have what I need when it gets here. I haven't biked in DECADES, so everything is sort of unfamiliar to me. I ordered a couple of spare inner tubes (Kenda, correct size, same ones sold on site) on eBay (free shipping). When I opened the box, the tubes were inside, as well as some very long, flat rubber strip-loops. They are stamped with the size of the tube and have a single hole that looks like the valve stem would go through. Can anyone tell me what these are for? I could always ask the seller, but thought I'd ask here, first. I can post a picture if it's not clear what I'm talking about.
