Hi everyone. I received my MOSH/Cty ebike and I have to say this ebike is 'AWESOME'! As soon as I received my bike I assembled it, charged it up and began my maiden ride which was 22 miles. In all honestly I could not get off this beautiful ebike...

When I arrived home the only thing I need (my thoughts) was a 'Bar End Mirror' as I ride in traffic and a safety need to view what is behind me. After I installed the 'Bar End Mirror' I was ready to take a ride and . . . nothing! I pressed the switch and the bike would not turn on! What!!

I retraced my steps and found that I shared the wires for the Display Remote and Harness. I never suspected that the wires were located so close to the end of the handlebar. So sad to watch a 72 year old guy break down in tears. LOL

I immediately called Serial 1 support and I have to say their support was second to none. These folks immediately sent me a new Harness and Display Remote. I live in Houston, Texas and the only LBS that was able to remove the old Harness and snake the new Harness through the frame was a LBS in Austin, Texas called 'Mellow Johnny's'! I called them and made an appointment to bring my bike in. I knew I did not have the expertise to remove the old Harness and snake in the new Harness. Well 3 hours later I was out the door with my MOSH totally repaired.

Be very careful when adding anything to an ebike because there are wires hidden in the handlebar and frame. Yes, this is why our Serial 1 ebikes look so stealth.

I'm sure as time moves on and more folks purchase this great machine there will be more authorized Support centers in each state.

I'm happy to join this Serial 1 community and hope to read your thoughts and experiences and learn and enjoy this great ebike with you.

Thank you for taking the time to write this up to warn others. I have a Mosh and the bar end caps are already looking a little rough from the normal wear of bumping into things. I was wondering if the bar end cap separated from the rest of the Mosh grip and could just be replaced with standard bar ends from any bike shop. Were you able to pull the factory end cap off before you installed the mirror and just didn't notice how close the wires were?

You should have no problems replacing stock grips with new grips. The wires for both the Display Remote and the Harness which connects to the Display are tucked inside the handlebar so I would advise do not install 'Bar End Mirror's there just isn't enough room room for the to the long 'allen screw' to fit without cutting into those internal cables. What I did after I cut into those cables (unknowingly) was to install a mirror that clamps onto the outside bar. This ebike looks great hiding all the cables inside the handlebar, fork and frame so we have to be cognizant of this.
FYI: I'm really enjoying this MOSH. It's more of an ebike than I expected. I hope this helps.

A picture will help with my question. On my Mosh, the soft rubber ends (circled yellow) are sort of beat up. If these just pull off (leaving the rest of the stock grip) I could just replace them with something like the common Odyssey bar ends found in any bike shop. The Odyssey bar ends do insert in the bars and expand with an allen screw but they are only about 1" long. I'm guessing your mirror mount was significantly longer?

If the part circled in yellow doesn't separate from the rest of the grip I will need to get entire new grips.
