    Where to get a second charge? Bulls don't sell them in the US anymore

    2017 Haibike Urban Plus issues & Replacement Part Specifications

    Sounds like the normal wear and tear you get with any bike and especially with ebikes due to the stronger forces involved. I have replaced my rear cassette twice (maybe 3 times) two derailleurs and I've probably gone through 4 chains and I just replaced the front cog. Thats after 5.5K miles...

    Anyone else have issues with the new 500w battery

    I just heard back from the bike store, good news, Bosch are now going to replace it. It seams like the support folks were just jumping to all sorts of conclusions and assumed I did something to it. The bike store owner knows me and my bike so he plead my case with a Bosch manager to get this fixed.

    Anyone else have issues with the new 500w battery

    So Bosch just told the dealer that it must have been caused by water damage, which is total BS, its never been submerged in water, I don't even store it outside, don't like riding in the rain and I live in California where we get far to little rain. I was under the impression that Bosch was a...

    Anyone else have issues with the new 500w battery

    I doubt its hydraulic fluid, and I would not think that would cause plastic to meld. I've no idea if they use fluid in the internal packaging. if I were to guess its fluid from a leaking battery which I understand can cause plastic to melt and shouldn't be touched but thats a guess on my part. I...

    Anyone else have issues with the new 500w battery

    The shop is a Bosch dealer and they are just as frustrated as I am, they feel they are green given the run around from Bosch. No the battery did not get submerged or treated in anyway outside of normal usage, no badges or scrapes either. The battery was purchased on November 27th so less that 6...

    Anyone else have issues with the new 500w battery

    Anyone else get a Cobi

    It did get significantly better but not nearly good enough and I use the regular Bosch controller now. I had a sense that the company was in denial about the issue, and that the design is fundemantally flawed.

    Haibike All Mountain Pro Question/Help

    Actually you can order them from Motostrano, I've ordered a few Bosch parts from them in the past. No idea if you can swap them out, I would call them before ordering. Mind you I would try a different dongle first http://www.motostrano.com/BOSCH-Electric-Bike-System-Parts-s/8181.htm

    Anyone else get a Cobi

    Cobi support has not offered any help yet, they say I "should receive feedback this week, before Friday perhaps" that will be two weeks. Anyone else using one, am I the outlier or is this the typical experience?

    Anyone else get a Cobi

    After working on it for about 90 minutes I got it to the point where I was willing to ride it down the hill, with my trusty Bosch controller in my pocket as backup. I could not get the universal phone holder to talk to the bike at all, so I switched to using the phone case instead. After a...

    Anyone else get a Cobi

    No doubt its my fault, but they clearly tried too hard to to keep the instructions minimalistic. Its an example of aesthetics wining at the cost of functionality or clarity if you ask me, rather than form follows function. I will see if they have better info online over the weekend and I sent...
