    SDuro Trekking SL 3000 mile review.

    Hey Scott, GREAT pics. . .you did a Super Job. Like you, I'm looking for additional "relaxed" positions-- I'm going to do what you did with the Jones H bar or perhaps a Butterfly bar. . . Good idea using a riser.

    New Trekking Owner; Which handlebar bag ?

    I just received my new "magic carpet" & I'm truly enjoying it. I've been using a "saddlebag" type rear pannier that fits OVER the rear rack-- which will work for now. I was wondering what HANDLEBAR BAG, some of you might be using that doesn't interfere with the cables ? Thx in advance Barry

    SDURO Trekking 6.0- Getting to know it

    Great bike, best of luck with it. Like you, my present ride is a "hybrid" type city bike. One of the best changes I made was switching to a "butterfly" type touring handlebar, with an adjustable stem. I was wondering if anyone would know if such a handlebar can be used with the Haibike...

    cross current s question(s)

    I've been "lurking" on the sidelines far too long. Getting ready to pull the trigger on the Cross Current S with either the 19 amp 48 v or 22 amp 52 v battery. Can anyone tell me whether: 1) the broken spoke or 2) chain falling off issues have been corrected ?
