    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    You very well may be right. I had them assemble it at the request of the company to keep the warrant intact and also because when I opened the box I just saw bags of wiring and parts. The frame was together but not much else. Not having any experience with ebikes I figured it best to leave it to...

    Your opinion is noted by the OP. I’ll just leave it at that.

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    Well I can do all those so I’m off to a good start. Replacing disk brakes and a motor….that’s gonna need some Professor YouTube.

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    The main reason I had a shop put it together is because Rad recommended it to ensure the warranty isn’t voided by the possibility of it not being assembled according to the exact specifications.

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    I agree. It’s like adopting a puppy. Sure the adoption fee is $100 but all the accessories and additional stuff turns into thousands before you know it.

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    Just for the record, the shop that put the bike together is a different shop than this one. The original shop no longer works on Rad Power products. I also called 3 other ebike shops that said they also don’t work on Rad bikes. I’ll let you take from that what you will.

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    Well here’s the update. Took it to a shop. 2 links in the chain were bent and nearly broken. (Good thing I didn’t push for a longer ride this morning) The connector link was too big for the tensioner which was causing the thumping and pinging. That likely had a hand in bending and breaking the...

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    I searched the reviews on YouTube and various ebike magazines and it seemed like a good economical option to try out. Bigger motor. Good mileage on the battery. I also liked the look since I’m not into the “granny went to the farmers market to get flowers” look on a bike which most ebike have...

    Rad Mission lemon or are they all garbage?

    I decided to try out Ebikes to be a little kinder on my old injuries. I purchased a RAD Mission after doing some research. Apparently I didn’t research enough. The bike shop couldn’t even get it put together without a part breaking. They warned me then about the low quality of Rad Power bikes...

    Tailbone wussies help

    Lol. Well aren’t I stupid. I’m new to all this stuff if you haven’t noticed. I should have put it together from the Google search. I’ll have a serious talk with myself on this one. Thanks!

    Tailbone wussies help

    I did a quick search on that. Are those e bike compatible? The site looks like a private shop. Do you know if other shops can get/install these? I’m not in VT so that might make things interesting being in CA.

    Tailbone wussies help

    Where’s my multiple broken tailbone people at? I’ve broken my tailbone twice (not doing anything cool either) so riding leaves a lasting impression…..of curse words and just plain inappropriate noises over the slightest movements for a few days. Any recommendations for a seat that won’t make me...

    Kickstand and chain popping.

    I truly appreciate all your help! I think I’m just going to start replacing parts with higher quality rather than going through Rad. It might take a while but hopefully wi be worth it.

    Kickstand and chain popping.

    Actually I saw a thread on here that talked about tensioner issues after having faulty part problems right out of the gate. I actually had the same thing. The bike was at a shop to get put together and a screw was faulty and some other part was wrong. That took about 10 days to get fixed. Now...

    Kickstand and chain popping.

    Looks like it is the tensioner after all. This is only the 5th ride on this bike. I assume this is a very common problem with Rad Power Bikes. I’m not going to replace parts every 5th ride. Just not gonna do it. do you have any recommendations for a more reliable bike that won’t break the bank?

    Kickstand and chain popping.

    The tensioner looks ok at a glance. I adjusted the wheel. Hopefully that did it. Thanks a ton for the help.
