    Xlc Evo rear hub assembly (Haibike)

    Well my rear wheel hub was loose on the drive side, decided to tightened it, one thing led to another, I disassembled the drive side and forgot the order of the components. I couldn't find any information on the net about the assembly of this one. I can't even find the manufacturers website...

    Comparison\Experience of Bafang M series vs the Brand name mid drives ?

    The m series Bafang mid drives seem very solid but since they are mostly used by smaller manufacturers I wasn't able to spot any real comparison of their newer motors to the well known brands like Bosch, Yamaha, Shimano etc. Does anybody know any tests of Bafang mid drives like M600 against...

    Kodiak mtb max wheel size

    I was wondering if anyone has experience with 2018 Kodiak. It seems to be a nice bike with good components and a Bosch system but the information about the wheel sizing is not clear. Is it 27.5+? In their video it says that the rims accept plus size tires but I believe it comes with 2.6" tires...

    It was my turn, be careful!

I am cruising around 15 to be safe, watching out the cars on the right in case one throws itself in the bike lane or opens doors. All of a...

    Touch up paint for chips

    I installed a seat post bike rack to my bike but the supporting arms chipped the paint. It is a haibike matte black finish, the chips are all the way to the metal, 2-3 mm in diameter. They were not visible until I took out the rack (it was too high since the bicycle is a high step one). Now I...

    Washing Guidelines

    Unfortunately I failed to find a thread dedicated to this. If there is one, you can delete this thread and point me to the right one. So, after 400miles my Haibike Xduro Cross needs some cleaning. It is mostly dried out mud/dust (but not heavy , you can probably just run your hands over it and...

    Saddle Choices

    I realized that there are very few posts on saddles in the forums so I decided to make a thread about it. I am trying to find a comfortable saddle for my haibike. The MTB saddle that comes with it is not bad but it does not have a cutout so it becomes somewhat uncomfortable for long rides...

    Maintenance, assembly etc.

    I am the happy owner of a Xduro Cross RC :). The thing is putting a smile on my face every time I ride it. Since I got it online it took me some time to fully tune it but right now it is riding very smooth. As I keep having problems I decided to ask it in the same thread. Right now my only...
