    Battery Replacement?

    Bike is going in for scheduled inspection soon. Yes, curry Charger owner here and my über-e-bike is over two years old. After two rides this week, one mountain, one road, my battery was dead between 50-60km. I wouldn't say it's a warranty issue, although I'll be putting my bike in for...

    Battery Replacement?

    Definitely not colder temps. Been very mild past few weeks. But there is some serious wind, like the ride yesterday.

    Battery Replacement?

    Update: see attached pic. What's your experience with battery replacement? My 500wh Bosch battery is starting to show serious degradation after 9000km(+) on my R-M Charger GX. Where I once calculated my bike rides according to time, i.e. how many hours I need to get from A to B to A, I'm now...

    Tire sizes?

    Initial review/thoughts on Super Moto-X replacing Rock Razor tires (tyres) on Charger GX. https://worstwriter.com/2019/08/10/r-m-charger-gx-urbanisation/

    Tire sizes?

    FYI - Received the super Moto-x tires this morning, even though I thought they wouldn't arrive till next week. Installed them right away. First impression after a short test ride in the rain? Yeah, baby. Should've done this a long time ago. Charger GX has been... urbanised. Review coming soon.

    Changed from Rock Razor to Moto-X this morn. First ride proves I should have done this long ago.

    Tire sizes?

    I tested the rock-razor's with different pressures at first but found them to be unstable with low pressure on pavement. After that I never felt like bothering with air pressure. I've been running them ever since at around 3-3.5 bar for all surfaces--a bit hard at times but so is the hardtail of...

    Tire sizes?

    I'm leaning toward the Super Moto-X (62-584) you also recommended. Main reason is their wear rating--according to the dealer I'm buying them from. They are supposed to last longer than rock razor or g-one. I'm also unfamiliar with tubeless tires. Guess I'll have to read up on that. Thanks for...

    Tire sizes?

    Thanks for info. I've since measured a bit more and you're definitely right. And now I know the significance of tire width, which had me all confused. Would appreciate any other suggestion regarding moving from knob tires to more street/trekking tires? I ride 60/40 (street/off-road) and feel its...

    Tire sizes?

    I'm confused about tire sizes. Currently running 27.5x2.35 - 650B razor rock (knob) tires. I want to replace them with Super Moto-X tires. Will 27,5x2,80 (70-584) fit? Thanks for info. -T
