    Cop cycle...50mph

    So they can burn off the donuts? ;) I can see pedalling useful for slow patrol like at large events, but the power is there if they need it.

    Specialized battery solution. Problem solved!

    Mine goes in with a firm slap to click it in. Have you tried turning the key while inserting the battery to get the latch out of the way, then slapping it to finish it off? Might help to get by the initial lip of the lock. Interesting if other manufacturers using the same Abus lock for their...

    Recommend a bike rack for ebike with fenders

    I have the hollywood rack for my turbo vado. the rack holds the bike by the frame instead of pushing down over the tires. Works great and holds up to 80lbs per bike. There is a cheaper version made by a company called Overdrive that is rated for about 60lbs per bike.

    A used less than 100 mile 2020 Vado 4.0 step thru for $2650. But I would lose new warranties not electronic related. Opinions

    Wow didn't realize you had to be the original owner. That's a tough choice since its normally lifetime warranty. "If you're the second, or later, owner of a Specialized or Roval product, you are eligible for a two-year warranty from the date of the original retail purchase."...

    Which frame lock mounts to the Specialized Turbo factory mounts?

    Any mount a frame lock to the factory mounts on a Turbo bicycle? I tried the ABUS 4960 but the mounting hardware was too narrow. Wondering if the XL sized ones will work.

    Class 1 vs 3

    A biker near here died recently when someone opened their car door suddenly and he got launched into the intersection and got hit by a truck. Too many variables

    Class 1 vs 3

    If you are riding mainly in the city with stops, traffic, and pedestrians, youre not hitting 28 mph very often unless you like living on the edge

    Vado 3.0 vs 4.0 (U.S. market)

    Bike work stand

    The hydraulic is somewhat off topic. Normal people would be looking for regular, not sure why you need a $2k hydraulic for a 60 lbs bike
