I just wanted to report and (ease some prospective buyers anxieties) that my 2013 Specialized Turbo is still going like it has the day I purchased it. I really do not see any reduction in battery life or detriment to the riding assist or speed. The bike literally goes just like it...
Howdy. The thought just crossed my mind a few days ago while thinking of someone who's significant other may be incapable of riding alone but would do ok on a tandem. OTOH a tandem is a litlle bit harder for going uphill than on a single bike I thought a tandem eBike could be the solution.
Do any forum members own a Long John Ebike ? I'm intrigued by the appeal of this utility bike although not completely sure about the driveability and weight of such machine :)
Something like this :
or here with BionX:
Has anyone had any work done on the Turbo S bottom bracket? I'm thinking having my LBS working on it and wonder if the bottom bracket is fair game for non Turbo Trained technician or whether there are some electronic components in the bottom bracket? I am assuming it should be ok for him to work...
I wonder how long does the battery last :-) but if this got to cars and ebikes that would be revolutionary wouldn't it ? :-)
Here is an interesting information that I just found out this morning while answering a post on Fat Bike Forum.
Lately, I have been wearing a fitness band that measures my heart rate. Lately I have also been enjoying riding a fat bike.
Looking at the fitness band's interpretation of calories...
What do you think could be the maximum width tire on the Specialized Turbo?
The current tire is Specialized Electrak Armadillo, 60TPI, wire bead, 700x45c.
Appears to be about 3" wide? There seems to be about 1/2 inch room on each side to accomodate a wider tire.
Now that I'm eyeing fat bike offering for my winter commute (I am waiting for Felt) I discovered this unknown (to me) Haibike:
I wonder when will this puppy be available in the USA?
