That my friends is the tone ring for the hall sensors the bike uses to determine how much assist.

Was backing it out of the garage when I heard something fall off the bike, look down and there it is in two pieces. I have about 250 miles on the bike (it arrived early June).

So it now is just a bike or an e-moped with no assist LOL.

I already have a support # with Rad Power Bikes we'll see how helpful they are.

That broken sensor is 4 bucks for one like you have, 20 bucks for a solid unit.
I'd persue the manufacturer, but I'd have an Amazon upgraded one at my house on Monday.


As with rv's, part of the fun of an electric bike is the upgrades you do.
Longer cranks, added gears, spring loaded seat post, adjustable goose neck, better brakes, racks, bags, computers, batteries, lights...you bought a Thor class bike, do the mods to make it yours.

Actually I'm kind of hoping for "Free" since I've only just purchased the bike. Also hoping they can get me one faster than the two week lead time Amazon shows for the $4 ones.

Update

Wow: Got an e-mail this afternoon from them. New part is on its way (no cost) and the e-mail includes instructions on how to replace it or they have allotted a $ amount should I wish to have a bike shop do the work (get the work performed and send them the invoice for reimbursement).

Cool. (Wasn't expecting any reply until Monday.)

Great news! I was wondering what you thought the discoloration was on your broken piece ? Right side. Was it rubbing on something?

That is probably overspray from when I greased the chain.

That plastic looks to be quite porous. Could overspray from chain stuff possibly cause a bit of a reaction in the plastic?

Good to hear that Rad is taking good care of you.

Yeah they mentioned that in their e-mail:
Quote:
I would advise against using any high impact lubricants, like WD40, as these can degrade plastic and could cause the magnet ring to break. In our shop, we use tri-flow brand lubricant although any low impact bicycle lubricant should do the trick.
I did not use WD-40

Anyone have this? Thoughts? Secure?

Thule 9032 EasyFold Carrier https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FSRNH4G..._1UXECbVDSNPVM

I have this one;


https://www.swagman.net/product/escapee/


It's build for Ebikes and RV's. Carry 2 Ebikes at about 50 pounds each, no problems, it has two locking mechanisms to secure the bikes and has a thread pin to cut down on vibrations and bouncing.

We use this one on the RV: Overdrive Sport 2 or 4 bike rack (Amazon). Good for up to 60lbs/bike.

Worked great on our last trip.

Smile E-Bike Explores - RAD BIKES FOR LIFE! RAD Mini

My wife and I can not be more happy with our eBikes. We take them everywhere. Our bikes can handle terrain (4 inch tires) great on the beach. I would strongly recommend looking into radbike: The Place For The Radical Bicyclist. You will not be disappointed. We got two rad mini bikes.
