    EMTB-Lite?

    The new updates are out, for the "Magic Tour" (or Tour+), if you have a Gen4 CX motor and new updates for the Kiox and some of the other computers. Tour+ mode replaces the Tour mode (whether if its standard Tour or eMTB Lite), but still shows Tour on the Kiox. From my short urban ride with the...

    What's the correct wheel circumference for 29" MTB wheels on the Kiox?

    The original tires that came with the bike were the Bontrager XR5 (29x2.6"). My current set are a set of Maxxis 29"x2.5" (front- Asseai, rear- Aggressor). I just redid the measure using your recommended method and with my current pressure of 30psi, it rolled out to 89". Thank you, for the...

    What's the correct wheel circumference for 29" MTB wheels on the Kiox?

    Thanks Peter, I'll try that in the morning. (Sorry for being a PITA) Quick question, what sizes are your tires and do you have the same limits of 91.37" on your system.

    What's the correct wheel circumference for 29" MTB wheels on the Kiox?

    I have done the multiple measuring methods, and came to roughly the same numbers as Cateye's calculator. I guess I need to take another trip to a Trek dealer and see if what they can do?

    Trek Rail 5 2020

    The Rail is good overall, as an owner of a 2020 Rail 9.7. But you would finding yourself upgrading parts with the lower model. Not sure if the frame has enough clearance for 2.8, though the 2.6 are huge enough for most terrain. What I changed immediately, since I had the parts already: seat...

    Is there any DOT headlight?

    I usually run my lights pointed down, but forward enough that I can see the road ahead me (roughly 10-12). That being said, living and riding in NYC, depending where Im at, I might point it up, so I can be seen by pedestrians (especially). They will just walk out in to traffic or in-between...

    Bosch Cx and Intuvia

    If I remember correctly when you switch to Sport, it will flash EMTB, then switch back to Sport. You can feel the difference, it will feel like Tour (moderate power) till you hit something hilly and then it feel like its in Turbo (full power). It took me a while to get use to, more so now that...

    Bosch Gen 4 Ebike Updates (More Torque, Improved eMTB Mode, Increased Power at Low Cadence, Navigation with Kiox, New Nyon for Europe & US)

    How do I get to update the Kiox? Im on an iPhone, do I leave the Kiox on the bike with the app open and bike On? Or with the Kiox on an USB power supply and app open? And are there steps I should follow?

    Bosch Cx and Intuvia

    From my experience with the Intuvia and the Gen3 motor, the Sport mode = EMTB mode. The Tour mode will provide 120% of assist, while the Sport/EMTB mode gives 120-300% assist, depending on hard you pedal and resistance the motor feels. I use EMTB mostly when riding trails, which allows me to...

    Bosch Gen 4 Ebike Updates (More Torque, Improved eMTB Mode, Increased Power at Low Cadence, Navigation with Kiox, New Nyon for Europe & US)

    I had the same prompt, I assume it will be applied to the Kiox when I go in for the new update.
