    Adjusting Pistons for Brake Rub on Formula C1 (Turbo X)

    I noticed over time that as my pads wore the issues I reported went away. I no longer have the rubbing issue. However it was a PITA early on. I tried several different methods of adjusting with limited success. Best to take it to the dealer and let us know how it goes!

    "S-Works" Rocket Ship, Full Carbon, at 35lbs, this ride will change your world!!!

    The new turbo Vado 2017

    Looking forward to the Trek feedback. Personally, I think the Vado has a look that will grow on us. So i'm taking wait and see approach until I'm able to see it in person.

    The new turbo Vado 2017

    This is a little confusing. If you look at the images, the 5.0 has a price point of $5k but when you go to the details it's actually $4200. For the 3.0, the image shows it's $3000 but the detail shows it's actually $3200.

    Are there Trunk Racks strong enough for an ebike?

    Or you can find an independent hitch installation shop. It will be much cheaper than a dealer install. To answer your question, the majority of trunk racks have a max of around 30lbs per bike whereas average weight of an electric bike is 50lbs. This precludes all the trunk racks as an option...
