    Rear Rotor Bolt Size

    The shop is ordering the proper bolts from specialized, in the meantime I ended up using 2 x 1mm washers on standard M5x10mm bolts, plenty of clearance at the caliper mount ... BAM!

    Service cassette freehub anyone?

    well I ended up getting a brand new wheel from Specialized so I will not be opening the freehub anytime soon after all ... but when you say DT-Swiss internals - do you mean the star ratchet mechanism ? or regular pawl design?

    Rear Rotor Bolt Size

    Regular M5x10mm bolts are too long for the rear hub/motor assembly, the spindle stops spinning way before the bolt bottoms out. I had my wheel replaced by Specialized (bad torque sensor) and after stripping a bolt on the original wheel when swapping them out I left the rotor and the bolts on...

    2016 Base Turbo HUB Service

    spokes are fine after the wheel rebuild, brass nipples and stronger spokes laced to wider rim stopped the nipples breaking. But now it's time for the hub itself, the freehub mechanism, sounds rough ... am going to regrease the pawls sometime soon. I got 4k miles on that hub

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S motor

    and based on 1 year and 4k miles I am not holding my breath ... Specialized has been a total chaos when dealing with things like faulty control unit, bad battery or a complete wheel rebuild ... good thing the dealer steps up as much as they can.

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S motor

    Oh sure, just started the process with the dealer today ... now why did you end up downgrading, was it due to availability?

    Differences between Turbo and Turbo S motor

    why did you downgrade ? I am asking cause my 200W motor is spinning out of control, sounds like the torque sensor is shot and am wondering how specialized will handle it

    2016 Base Turbo HUB Service

    It's time for a complete overhaul of the bike after 4k miles. I just finished replacing the drivetrain and had the rear wheel rebuilt (factory spokes / nipples are POS) What I would like to do next is to rebuild the hub, does anybody here have any experience with that? What kind of pawl system...

    Well I just got my 3rd Turbo S and...

    my bike is currently at the shop for this: http://electricbikereview.com/community/threads/2015-2016-base-turbo-startup-issue.3720/ Shop was able to repro it and verify it's the battery, currently waiting to hear from Specialized while I ride the identical loaner (minus the rack and brooks saddle)

    it's not even about the 2% - I rarely see 100% on my bike. His problem is the flashing from the charger kicking in and out ... did you try a different charger @John Dombrowski ?
