Re: R Martin: R10

I just went to test ride some bikes because I am thinking of replacing me daughters R-10. The bikes I tried had 350W hub motors and they were much better on a very steep hill than the R-10. The bikes I tried did have 21 speeds which helped. So If I were you I would have second thoughts about using t...

Sorry, I forgot to make the pictures public. You should be able to get to them now.
The R-10 appears to be quite different from the European version.

Re: RMartin R10 running at 1800Watts through Nuvinci N360

Here are links to pictures to disassemble down to the gearbox. After that it is pretty straight forward. Sorry many of my pictures are out of focus. The R10 uses a 4 bolt freewheel not a 5 like the other pics. Remove crank, then the 4 screws https://picasaweb.google.com/110079363009574117238/June520...

Re: RMartin R10 running at 1800Watts through Nuvinci N360

Here is a link to the second freewheel part that you need. It is the top one on the page. http://www.electricscooterparts.com/freewheelclutches.html You need to unscrew the center piece from your existing one and put it in the new one. It was very hard for me to remove. I think the load on the part ...

Re: R Martin: R10

Here is an update on my update. I got the part back and the bike still did not work. It turns out the freewheel mechanism was fine but they replaced it anyway. (Thank you). The problem is that the gear on the end of the motor shaft is held on by a roll pin, and it had sheared off (like they are desi...

Re: R Martin: R10

Here is an update on my daughters R10. The free wheel mechanism failed again one year after the last time. They replaced it for no charge even though the warranty had expired. They told me the last time that the part was being redesigned and they they would give me the new one when I needed it. This...

She uses it daily as her only mode of transportation. She is very happy with the bike. It is comfortable and t...
