    Ebike vs analog

    The top of the line Yamaha e-bikes are very expensive IMO.. I'd love to have their full suspension mtn. bike but not paying 5,600 USD for one. That being said, I'm sure the quality is high..

    Misleading used battery % on display for ebikes !!

    The issue I have is that my standard ride uses 10-12% of my battery capacity. If I do a full charge to balance all the cells, it could be days or a week before I'm below 80%.... I leave my battery at 50% SOC and charge to 60% before my ride.. A few times during the summer I will do a full...

    Ebike vs analog

    I don't feel like I'm cheating at all on my Yamaha ebike... If I want a work out, I use eco plus mode... Just for fun when I see other ebikers I yell,, "hey, that's cheating!" to them as I smugly ride MY ebike. hehehe

    It truly is the wild west era for e-bikes.. How are the big established brands for warranty?.. Giant, Trek etc. That might be the way to go?

    Helmets...Wear Them!!!

    I ride motorcycle as well and to hear some of the arguments against wearing helmets is sad.. My favorite is that the weight of the helmet will snap your neck in a crash

    Known Issues & Problems with Haibike Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

    I bought my trekking Haibike (yamaha PW) two years ago and it's been flawless so far. I have close to 1,500mi. on it now and still on original chain which doesn't show it needs replaced yet on my stretch tool. So one more year on warranty and I'm on my own with this bike but I question how...

    Help: How many links in the chain on my Haibike trekking 6.0 with 10speed cassette and dual chain rings

    Good tip!... I should order the longer chain and remove links if needed or maybe I'll get lucky and the chain will be 136 links

    Help: How many links in the chain on my Haibike trekking 6.0 with 10speed cassette and dual chain rings

    I can't find this information anywhere. I tried counting the links but can't do it w/ the chain on the bike.. Specs show it takes the KMC X10e chain but nowhere does it say how many links... There are options for 122 links and 136 links.. I'm guessing it would be the longer of the two due to the...

    Charging to 80% without a Satiator

    Certainly wouldn't expect them to have adapters for all OEM batteries but not having them for one of the most, if not THE most popular brand (Yamaha) is a bit of an oversight, especially when you advertise the charger as "universal". I realize I can cobble my own together if I so choose, my...

    Charging to 80% without a Satiator

    The Grin satiator is advertised and sold by Grin as a "universal" e-bike battery charger. If they advertise it as being "universal" you'd think they'd have adapters since there are so many different brands and styles of e-bike batteries... If they only advertised it for their proprietary...
