From my initial ride, I had issues with the new TorqueBoards hubs, and should have learned my lesson, but didn’t, and now got tossed off my board doing 30mph, when the bolts holding the hub together backed out, ripping my phase wires apart, and tossing me.
After 5 minutes of riding them the first time, these bolts backed out, and one fell off completely. Not to mention, the set screws holding the collar on slipped, ripping the phase wires. I contacted diy, and eventually got a response. They told me to add loctite. Drill a pilot hole for the set screws, and loctite those. Not sure why they sell a product without that done if it falls apart after 5 minutes without. Now their “customer service” dropped off the map when I asked for replacement bolts and solution for the loose urethane.
I stupidly decided to go for another ride after performing their “fix”. I rode another 4 miles (that’s a record for these), and while going roughly 30mph one of those same bolts backed out and chaos ensued.
Now I’m stuck with a $400 piece of trash and some nasty road rash. So yea, don’t be an idiot like me and buy this garbage.
