    Pulled it apart on the weekend and it wasn't as bad as I thought, the boot was intact and whatever heat seal they had used had failed, I just used some contact adhesive to glue it back on. I'm guessing it failed as I use it everyday to go up the harbour bridge steps, and the walk mode is a bit...

    Does anyone know if Giant sells the rubber boot for the ride control ? Mine has perished on my 2018 Quick-e

    I think you are better off with another more upright bike with front suspension. I changed my stem to an adjustable angle one but you still lean on the handlebars instead on sitting upright. Shop for a bike that fits better instead of making it fit.

    Thanks, 2nd time my chain has come off in the past month, today I was in the middle lane of 3 lanes of traffic, lights turned green, took off and about 3 pedal strokes later the chain came off, lucky I had just enough speed to coast to the kerb. after 15 minutes of struggling (knowing there was...

    I'm impressed, riding 46 miles a day is pretty amazing and you are reaping the health benefits already! If you broke your chain that early and you don't intend dramatically changing your shifting style I would recommend you probably change you chain every 500 miles or so, the reason is that a...

    Haha what a joke, do they mean that people were actually bringing their bikes in for a service? I see that they sell service plans, so they are probably forcing people to buy those. Mind you I wasn't impressed with Giant Sydney city, on the first ride home I had to adjust the gears when I got...

    You should be taking your bike back to the shop in a few weeks for the free 1 month service, get them to look at / bleed the brakes for you then.

    At least it will be easier to inflate than the presta valves, I still hate loosening them then making sure the pump head is on properly. Can't remember how I found out about the adaptors but they came in handy when I was commuting on my racing bike, I could just stop at the servo and top up my...

    Glad it's not just me, I had a loose rear wheel also, tightened it and all good for now.

    You can always just chip it, I did with my 2018 and love not being stuck doing 25kph in 60 kph traffic.

    I'm approaching 50 kph by the time I'm running out of gears (and that's downhill) and that speed is fast enough for me, on the flat the gearing is good enough for approx 40 kph

    I fitted mine with an adjustable height stem (I had one that I never used) and that makes riding a lot more comfortable being slightly more upright. I would personally pump up the PSI to 60, 42 is probably a bit low. I've had my speedbox 2 on for approx 9 months now and no issues with it at...

    I found out the other day that there is such a thing as a suspension stem! it might be worth a try first?

    I have on the occasional morning where I forgot to charge the bike the night before. I think full charge is 4-6hrs (I plug it in at work and unplug it when I go home). I'm guessing 1hr will give you a good 20% charge?
