    How water resistant are the Trek Allant family of ebikes?

    I've ridden my 9.9s in a downpour. 12 mile ride all in a substantial rain storm from my place of work to home.

    ALLANT 7S vs. 8S... decisions, decisions....

    I have a bit over 2,000 miles on my 9.9s - I believe the motor sound has decreased some... not sure if it's all in my head but that's how i feel. Especially in eco mode - I honestly don't hear it anymore in that mode - not sure if modes matter though - but I use eco mode almost exclusively...

    Bosch range boost - questions

    I'm curious about Bosch's range boost for those that have them. I've been dreaming up some long distance rides (100+ miles) and I'm wondering what the charging process is like for the whole 80% charge thing. When you have both the powertube battery in the frame and the range boost attached...

    First ebike century with my Allant 9.9s

    Hey Luv2ride - i pinged you on Strava but thought i'd ask here as well... what size tubes are you running with your tannus armor? The tire size that I'm running is 27.5 x 2.35. It suggests 27.5 x 1.5-1.95 but I'm not even sure if that's such a thing... :-/ I'm seeing a lot of 1.8-2.5 or so...

    Trek Domane+ HP

    Johnny & Sticksandstones - it's all good. I don't think I'll be replacing my allant anytime soon. It serves its' purpose! I really do enjoy it :-) I'd lose money on the allant if i traded in or sold it - too early. Maybe 3-4 years I'll do that - but at that point i may just keep it around...

    Trek Domane+ HP

    yep! It’s simply allowing us the option to turn off and turn on the lights at will. I can tell you one thing - there is battery drain from the lights and it‘s not unnoticeable. I played around a bit with the bike one day - just letting it drain sitting there (of course having to turn on the...

    Trek Domane+ HP

    You'll have to take it in to a dealer to be able to use that functionality. Trek turns off the ability to turn off your lights for those of us in the US. I took mine in for them to do it - maybe 20 minutes or so. At first I called to see if they would do it - the guy I spoke with tried...

    Charging cycles - battery life

    Ha - i think i have a good answer found from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charge_cycle My 60->80% was just an example - I usually run it down more than 60% :-) But rarely less than 30% or so. I charge to 100% maybe once per month.

    Charging cycles - battery life

    This shows my ignorance I'm sure - but I'm curious and always have been (I used to own a Nissan Leaf). When a company says a battery lasts so many charging cycles, say 1000, what does that mean. Is 1 charging cycle "used up" when I charge from 60 -> 80%? Sorry if that's a stupid question.

    What’s the fastest you’ve been on your Trek ebike?

    valid point - there are certainly those that have that “must pass cyclist no matter what cost” attitude.

    What’s the fastest you’ve been on your Trek ebike?

    Been in the 50s a couple times on my road bike going downhill. 40s a large amount when I lived in hillier areas than I live now. One criterium had a downhill then uphill section - 2 mile laps - hit that down hill with other riders around jockeying for position. Doing that was pretty crazy...

    First ebike century with my Allant 9.9s

    Nice looking bike. How do you like the DT swiss wheelset? Those aren't stock right?

    First ebike century with my Allant 9.9s

    Ha - I am absolutely nowhere near Fabian's level. Those guys are monsters. I never made it past cat 4. Mainly 2 reasons - bad racing tactics (constantly in the front - I've always been afraid of the surliness of the middle of the pack), and I simply never raced enough to learn how to race...
