Thank you a lot for your quick reply!

For me, the suspension of the fork is the main issue... at top speed, it is really not comfortable.

For the drive, i am always on "high" since i only use my bike to go to work and can recharge there.

I will check if i can try the Bosch Speed drive :)

How does this bike compare to the 2019 XDURO Trekking S 9.0??

https://www.motostrano.com/Haibike-XDURO-Trekking-S-9-0-electric-bike-2019-p/trekks919.htm

I am always so confused with the difference between S Duro and X Duro. And I suppose "S" means cat 3???
S=class 3.

The Trekking Sduro S9.0 allows a little more off-road than the Trekking Xduro S9.0. It’s also more comfortable (fatter tires + shock with more travel). Essentially the Trekking Sduro S9.0 is this year’s model and the Trekking Xduro S9.0 is last year’s model. The biggest complaint leveled at the Xduro S9.0 was a relative lack of comfort. That’s why they’ve made the changes. The Xduro can’t accommodate a dual battery whereas this year’s Sduro can. This Sduro Trekking S9.0 is a better steep hill climber due to an 11-46 cassette. Last year’s Xduro Trekking S9.0 had an 11-42. You have to keep in mind that the bikes are shipped with a 20T Bosch crank (meaning 50T), so having an 11-46 is an advantage for steep hills.

Hopefully I haven’t confused you more.

Perfect! Fully understood. Any idea if and when the xDuro Adventr 6.0 FLYON 2019 will hit the USA?? - don't think its released anywhere yet. Is this model the next version of the Sduro 9.0?? Looking at the Haibike site, the bike sure looks sexy, and lots of tech to geek out on. Thanks so much for the reply on the Sduro.

This bike is absolutely gorgeous. Good thing it was on a Sunday. I might have bought the bike straight away (I'm trying to wait November for clearance sales).

Unfortunately, my picture isn't great due to reflections, but here goes:

The bike in the picture above is size L. Important details to note:

- There are two spacers under the stem.
- The handlebars are riser handlebars similar to what installed on the old Trekking models. You get a rise of about 4-5 cms.
- There is indeed a horn.
- The pedals are still the Wellgo C29s. You might want to change those.

The 11-46 cassette is going to help with hillclimbs. Because the front sprocket is a 20T, which is the equivalent of a 50T. The climb ratio in the lowest gear is 1:1.09 due to the 11-46 cassette. The older Trekking Xduros with the Bosch Performance Speed had a 1st gear ratio that was considerably less with 1:1.19.

They won’t release until mid. 2020, same in Europe. They take “deposit” only, but by that time the Tq motor might be on many other brands...

I am picking up a 2018 SDURO Trekking 9.5 on sale in Santa Barbara for $3799. Haibike had a few XL left in the warehouse and shipped one out to SB for me to pick up. Beautiful bike. Now all I have to do is sell my motorcycle to make room for 2 bicycles in the garage. The 2019 and 20 are awesome looking bikes. Can not wait to take it for a spin.

I just got my 2019 SDURO S9.0 the other week ... I am loving it ... and it is a climber ...

I weigh 200lbs with a laptop bag and change of clothes for the day if I go full eco I can cover nearly 40 miles and not need to charge it until i get home... and i have a few percentage of 4-7% battery still on the gauge my commute is ~ 750ft of climbing over 20 miles with the climbs being spread out..

Just today i went full sport and some turbo to my work still had battery left range reporting 6 miles =) ... but I had to charge it at work obviously

Speed motor definitely you have to pedal hard to get that 28MPH on teh flats so don't expect much over 20 if you are in anything but the hardest gear ... i still sweating a good amount when i get to work when I really push myself because but we have showers so no big deal...

i get to work in just under an hour so this bike saved me ~ 25-30 minutes a day each direction --

9/12/2019 UPDATE:

Still enjoying this guy but had to do my first ride in the dark ~9PM the other day as i got out of work WAY...late... the stock headlight SUCKS and is insufficient if you are riding a dark bike path ... i was scaring the hell out the rabbits and myself trying to avoid running over thumper - and the occasional moron wearing black walking on the oncoming side of the bike path with not even a reflective vest or flashlight ...

I have my other handlebar battery operated light i been using on my other bike before I went motorized for these times now to supplement but sheesh take my word for it ... 'If you riding this guy at night GET A different light or an additional one' ... Haibike would be wise that if they are going to include a light ....offer various light options during purchase so we don't have to mess with it later... I'd rather have the shop building the bike for me do all this stuff vs paying them to do it for me later or spending my time doing it ...

MP99 PURE if you got ~$450 to burn *CRAZY*
...or...

Do what I did and use an existing or other battery operated one... only annoyance there is having to charge the stupid thing which is why i liked the integrated light

Maintaining it...
... have had to put up with the fact cleaning and lubing the chain on the bike without a stand is a real pain unless you flip the bike upside down because the chain does not move when you pedal backwards - and the chain does not have a darn master link in it... so if you want to save some frustration there buy a master link kit as chain maintenance and sprocket cleaning is way easier with the chain out of the way...

I applied Muck-OFF for wet being PNW a lite lube is a bad idea unless you want to remove the chain religiously honestly i prefer to do it every other week! ... will see how long the original chain lasts and I will update that here ... I will say after applying muck off the chain noise is certainly quieter now ... my chain was not dry lube wise but after this weeks storms and being out in two downpours it was getting sqweeky!
