That firmware seems old. I took my bike into the shop a couple of weeks ago and when he connected it to the computer it started updating to a new version. I'm not sure what the new version is but I had an older picture on my phone from before the update and had these versions:Hi everyone... I got one of the last 2019 Quick-e+s around over here a few weeks ago. So far I'm very happy.
It's by no means a huge deal, but I can't figure out how to get phone notifications to show on the screen. I can't find anything about it in the Giant RideControl app or settings (I have the iPhone version) and I'm a bit stumped.
I thought it might be because it's an older firmware version, but I can't figure out how to update that. I read a thread somewhere that suggested Giant may have disabled the firmware update feature due to issues, but can't find anything else about it.
Actually, just looking at the version numbers, and they look old! Wasn't the notification functionality a 2019 feature/update? LBS was meant to do updates before the handover, so maybe I should go back to them? Can anyone who has a current software/firmware update provide their version numbers?
Many thanks for any input-- there's not much info out there on this stuff!
Thats good news about the MIK racks... I'm in NZ as well. Would you mind sharing which LBS has them in stock? What's the part actually called?MIK racks backorder have finally arrived in NZ, picked it up at lunchtime and fitted it once I got home, once I worked out how to get the plastic lugs out of the mounts small drill hole and hex key pushed in, wind out.
EVEN Better a fix for the rear wheel/derailer hanger issue. Talking to the bike mechanic at LBS he said Gaint have come up with a fix. He needs to order the parts in and will fit them next week for me, when he gives it a service. When pushed on what the solution was, all he was prepared to say is they have gone old school. So hopefully a permanent fix to the issue in weeks time.
Aaand, they're out of stock. There's one left in store, but it's already being held for someone. I'm assuming it's for one of you fine gentlemen. I put in an order for another one. They said they shouldn't be backordered anymore, and should come in a lot quicker now.It's on my way home. What a small world. Cheers.
That would be me, sorry Blu. Had one on order with Giant Wlgtn, (but you never hear back from them). Rang Evo and ba da bom... cheers M8tt!Aaand, they're out of stock.

EDIT: They just rang back, and no stock left with Giant USA. Backordered till October. It's like Giant didn't expect many people to want to use the rack that they partially equipped on a commuter bike! Oh well, it forced me to get off my butt and get it ordered.
What chain lube are you using?Just a heads up, I'm on around 1800kms now and I noticed some play in the rear wheel bearing. It grinds a little on rotation but my LBS says it's ok and adjusted the play. I watched what the mechanic did and basically the lock nut is loosened and the bearing adjusted to be hand tight, then the lock nut is tightened. Now it's fine - just something to be wary of.
Also, my chain and sprockets are still fine. As a motorbike rider also, I've been using Motorcycle Chain Lube - seems to prolong the life of these components.
