    Is there something new? I think I've had this version installed since Aug 22

    New Vado 4.0

    After waiting about a year or more for an Allant+ 8, then watching Trek cancel it in Canada, I purchased a Turbo Vado 5.0 IGH. I couldn't be happier. It is such a superior bike to the Allant+ 8 and I am so glad I didn't purchase the Trek earlier. I've got to say that as someone who has been a...

    My perfect Vado 5.0 IGH

    Does the Kinekt result in your seat being moved back an inch. I've got an XL frame and I'm right on the borderline between the L and XL. It took me awhile to convince myself the reach wasn't too large on the XL. I'm afraid that if the seat was moved back an inch, I would find the reach...

    Is it possible to even buy a Turbo Vado 5.0 Medium

    I had to wait until about 1 month ago to get my Vado 5 IGH from my local LBS. This was after waiting about 1 year, and 1.5 years for a Trak Alliant+ 8, which was ultimately discontinued in Canada. It's the global supply chain issues leading to a shortage. I suggest emailing Specialized...

    Vado 5.0 owners: what are you using for a lock?

    I got my Turbo Vado 5.0 IGH about a month ago, and haven't yet purchased a lock since I store the bike in my office and secured storage at home. However, I'd like to get a lock in case I need to make quick stops on the way home from work. I live in Vancouver, where bike theft is rampant. I've...

    Can you get locks that use the AXA keys?

    Hi, is it possible to order a lock that uses the same AXA keys that came with my Vado 5.0? I thought I read something about this somewhere, but I may be crossing wires in my brain. Thanks.

    Turbo Vado 5.0: how to set proper preload on seat post? How does performance compare to Kinect?

    I'm in the same boat! I want to measure the stock length, but haven't done that yet. I've got an XL frame.

    Specialized Vado 5.0 IGH Cadence Survey

    I'm in Canada so my Vado is limited to 20 mph anyway! Silver lining, I guess :)

    Charging question - don't overcharge?

    I don't know about you guys, but my display shows the percentage as it's charging. So if you want to charge to 80%, why not just watch the display? (I charge to 100% each time, but it's cause I'm too busy at work to monitor it.)

    Turbo Vado 5.0: how to set proper preload on seat post? How does performance compare to Kinect?

    Do you need to adjust the Kinect, or does it just work properly out of the box?

    The Saga of my Vado 5.0 IGH

    Bummer, I'm sorry to hear that! I can imagine how frustrating and disappointing that must be. I just got my 5.0 IGH a few weeks ago, so far it's been perfect in all ways, but I've only got a few hundred km on it so far. Fingers crossed!

    Turbo Vado 5.0: how to set proper preload on seat post? How does performance compare to Kinect?

    I got my Vado 5.0 a few weeks ago, and had my LBS adjust the seat post preload because it didn't seem to be working while riding. I can now feel it working, however it feels very discreet, and not a smooth continuous motion that dampens the bumps. I assume this is just how this post works - but...

    weird. My IGH works perfectly. I love it.

    Experience Thread: A noobie getting into a specialized vado 5.0 IGH

    You should try the calibration on a bike stand, or holding up the rear wheel. I watched the enviolo video on how to calibrate, and they said that ideally it should be done on a bike stand (not riding it).
