    Pannier bags for Yamaha rack?

    I wound up getting larger sized Brooks bags a couple of weeks ago. Should have mentioned it. They’re pretty nice. I can carry at least 6 wine bottles or two six packs in each. Wondering what the Rackmate snap on adapter might be useful for.

    Yamaha Wabash Gravel eBike - [Video]

    It’s a great bike. I have a hybrid with a suspension seat post and a high end Trek Domane with a front stem suspension. It is much more stable and comfortable than either. Just a fantastic bike. And then there’s the e-bike side!

    Pretty Good Headlight

    I just put my 800 Lumen Cygolite on my Wabash. It’s a nice improve mental.

    Top speed on the flat Yamaha Cross (Core or Connect)?

    I have a Wabash and have exactly the same experience. When it cuts out, its fine. The only time its weird is when I have the bike in high mode, am heading downhill, and want to speed up to match traffic. While I’ll be able to increase speed, I’ll have a little plateau at 20. Generally if I hit...

    Rear light for dense city traffic

    So I bought two Garmin Varias. One for my ebike, along with the tiny heads up display and one for my road bike for my Wahoo Roam. I love them!

    Handlebar bags for Yamaha/relocating light?

    In hopes of getting some response from someone else who has done this, has anyone found an adequate solution to handlebar bags on the Yamaha ebikes? I have a Wabash and the light is right where I’d hang a handlebar bag. Maybe the light can be moved? Or maybe there is a bag that will work with...

    Rear light for dense city traffic

    How have you found the detection? I’m thinking of picking one up myself too.

    Cordless Electric Lawn Mowers

    Was mowing lawn with the Ryobi today. Remembered why I switched from a human-powered reel mower. The Ryobi mulches leaves! The human powered reel mower did not.

    Hello from Montclair, NJ

    I’ll have to take some photos and I’ve just starting using the bike so I don’t know about range. As for Strava KOMs, only total jerks would use an ebike to bag Strava segments.

    Hello from Montclair, NJ

    Hi everyone! I’ve already posted to this board asking for advice about a bike, but now that I have one, I thought I’d introduce myself. I’m the very happy new owner of a Yamaha Wabash. I love my Wabash because it feels like a bike, just a bike ride by someone with bionic legs. I have a Domane...

    What does Bluetooth do?

    I tried it with Strava today. I set Bluetooth to CPP (Cycling Power Profile). Although Strava didn’t say it “saw” the sensor and there was no indication on the main e-bike activity screen, when I stopped the ride it appears that my power was recorded. Not a reason to buy the bike but a nice...

    Yamaha Urban Rush or BH Atom Diamond Wave Pro

    A final update to this saga. I was getting bad vibes from the local bike store. The owner isn’t in half the time, nobody else really knows what’s going on. Nobody answers the phones 90% of the time and they say email is low priority. I got the distinct feeling they didn’t want to sell the bike...

    Bike that can be ridden without pedal assist

    Try a Yamaha? They are generally around 42 pounds so a bit lighter than most ebikes. Plus they feel like bikes.

    NY/NJ Ebike Stores

    Yes, it sounds like you want a brand that’s more bike, less Kickstarter-derived electric moped. Try Yamaha, which they have at Sleek Cycles. I bought a Wabash.

    What does Bluetooth do?

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear, but I figured it out. Had assumed my crappy manual was as crappy as the other one, but it actually contained some info amidst the awfulness that led to success. See above.
