Link you went on a 33mi ride. What was battery v starting and ending? Just curious...………………………...Did a longer ride today (32.7 miles), no problems on any hill (max 6%) and when I checked the motor temp it was basically at ambient (45F).
Tried to stay mostly in assist level 1 and even that is friggin amazing easily staying above 20mph on the flatter sections, I was having a hard time keeping my heart rate up (it was 10bpm less than normal). I guess I need to start trying eco on my next ride.
For some reason, the ergo grips on this bike cause my hands to go numb pretty quickly, I tried adjusting the angle a bit. Hopefully that fixes the numbness problem. If not, grips are easy and cheap to replace.
I also moved the brake levers in toward the stem to have more leverage on the levers and the brakes are so much more powerful now. This is common knowledge/practice but most bikes I have owned didnt need this adjustment for me. In doing so, I had to move the throttle to be inboard of the brake levers and display which can make it awkward to reach. I like the High power mode you can use with the throttle/assist but Im pretty sure Im going to be taking the throttle off (I can always add it back later).
Had an awkward/scary situation taking the bike from the den down a few steps into the garage. The bike was powered on and basically tried to take off. Maybe I hit the throttle but Im not sure how thats possible because in the end I was holding/fighting it with just my right hand. Removing the throttle will confirm if this might have been the issue.
DId about 5 miles on S assist level at 28mph on a flat section, its amazing how much faster 28mph feels compared to 20mph.
Also did about 1 mile going up a 5% slope on S assist level averageing right at 20mph. About 5mph more than my Bulls ebike and 3mph than my TSDZ2 DIY bike. Once again, motor temps were fine.
So the ride ended up being 32.7 miles 1230ft elevation change with an average speed of 17.1 which is about 2mph average more than what I can do on my Bulls eMTB(20mph limit) or DIY TSDZ2(no speed limit) bike and my heartrate was quite a bit lower as well. Total WH consumed was 521wh.
I ordered some Continental Racekings (2.2 for the front and 2.0 for the rear). I will provide updates when I ride these...likely friday
I've had this happen by bumping the pedals. Seems to me to be a cadence sensor thing, because not much torque there. I just make sure to have the bike turned off in those situations. Your experiment might produce a more permanent fix!Had an awkward/scary situation taking the bike from the den down a few steps into the garage.

Are you using it in R mode? Some have reported that even in S mode, the ccx assists past 28 mph.Man, I just went out for what I thought would be a 10 minute fun ride on my CCX. Turned into 46 minutes, 21.9mph moving average, 820ft elevation gain, 17 mile ride. Took it down the path and all the way up the toll road. Garmin says the top speed was 33.4mph. There is something surreal about riding these things on the flats in the bike lane along the road at 30mph that is indescribable unless you've done it. Haven't had this much fun on a bike since I was 12.
So in california, an ebike can only legally assist up to 28 mph. The ccx assists beyond this speed. My interpretation of the law is that if the bike does assist past 28 mph, it must legally be registered as a moped, requiring licensing and registration. Insurance as well?I'm in California, Dan. I just took it out at 30+ mph but that was in a bike lane on the road. Bike path I stay under 20mph - and the posted speed limit is 15mph. Both S and R get me over 30mph on flats. I'm 50 years old and 6'2 and 150 pounds. I have thousands of road bike miles but I would call myself an above average rider at best. 5 years ago I was a strong rider. It's not a problem to hold 30mph on S mode on the CCX for me.
Im pretty sure this is what happened, the pedals hit a step on the way down.I've had this happen by bumping the pedals. Seems to me to be a cadence sensor thing, because not much torque there.

Awesome! That 52 V 19 Ah battery is the nazz!Did a 42mile ride today, mostly in eco and level 1. Wouldnt you know it, the wind picked up and turned into a 15mph headwind on the way home so about 8 miles in S mode thru rolling 4-6% hills doing 20mph+, thats one thing you gotta love about ebikes. Most of my rides are against the wind on the way back and its just so nice to have the assist. So 42 miles and 643 wh used with average speed of 17.5mph.
