Default Re: Warning to All! - Everyone look at this!

hence the name "motor assisted bicycle" if you dont have the pedals it s really called a scooter! if you had pedals on the bike you possibly could have pedaled the bike home instead of pushing it or leaving it for dead! as far as maintenance goes , there's not much maintenance on the crank assembly! and if you had the cranks in you would of had the tensioner in place as well! therefore you might have reduced vibrations in the bike that may have caused the studs to break in the first place. i have had two studs break on me as well but not at the same time and I replaced mine with american thread 1/4-20 bolts and have'nt had a problem since. real sorry to hear about your misfortune and hope you might have second thoughts about scrapping the motor.
