    With 160nm of torque it's easy..

    Anyway, the tire looks fat, but it is only a 150.

    When I wear a jacket I use the media pocket also... but I'm in CALIFORNIA so I usually just ride in a T-shirt and pants. Trying to figure out if this OPO is carryable in my pants or if I need to figure out a more safe way.

    I wouldn't recommend putting it in your back pocket. it's not necessarily what caused this, but there were comments on there suggesting that having it in the back pocket meant it perhaps got bent ever so slightly, causing it to happen. the investigation into what caused it is still underway, but I reckon in the meantime it's better to be safe than sorry!

    WTF? Ouch. Thanks for the info... I guess I will be looking for a safer way than in my pocket. Now I hope this OPO doesn't burn my house down. o_O Started a new thread because of what I saw on your post... https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/attention-opo-staff.108845/

    reckon it should be alright, it's the only case of this happening, it could just have been a faulty device (it was reported to have gotten very hot whilst charging a month prior to it malfunctioning)

    either way a handlebars bracket/holster does sound like a great idea! :)

    It's long so I would get a pair of cargos and do the side zip pocket. Might get wallet bend in the back pocket because it is large.

    I've seen the Spyder in the streets before... really interesting. It was like a reverse trike.
