    Parent company is likely not the correct term, but contractor.

    Rear motor removal fat bike

    Need to know the size of the wheel (I assume 26"), the width of the hub (you can measure the inside distance between the dropouts, where the axle sits in the frame), and how many gears/cogs are in the back.

    Rear motor removal fat bike

    Buy a new wheel and sell the old one.

    Use screw hole in BB to help stabilize BBSHD Motor?

    The hole is there to allow attaching a cable guide. It has nothing to do with letting water out.

    Mid Drive shifting under throttle only

    Yes you can. The prerequisite for shifting is that the chain is moving. Since the motor is driving the chain, the derailleur can shift.

    Presta to Scrader Adapter

    So drill out the rims on your bike so they will accept Schrader valve tubes.

    Seat tube 31.8mm dia. vs 31.6mm post dia.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but this is asking for trouble. I see it all too often, people not using the correct part. There is no penalty for doing it right, but there potentially is you do it wrong. Just get the correct smaller diameter post and the appropriate shim.

    Seat tube 31.8mm dia. vs 31.6mm post dia.

    As a working professional, using the wrong size and just tightening up is a bad idea. In order to do what you suggest requires over-tightening the bolt or quick release with more torque than it is designed for.

    Seat tube 31.8mm dia. vs 31.6mm post dia.

    So you already have or bought a 31.6 seatpost? If not, buy the smaller 27.2 diameter size and use a thicker shim.

    Why does it seem Vado owners are getting KINEKT 2.1 vs Redshift Seat Post ?

    As I said, let's say he got a different bike in the future. He could likely still use the 27.2 post on the new bike, regardless of the new bike's actual size. If he got a Como and bought a 30.9 post, if the new bike used a smaller size, he'd have to buy another post.

    Why does it seem Vado owners are getting KINEKT 2.1 vs Redshift Seat Post ?

    Yes it varies, but you can always order the smallest diameter size and use shims to make up the difference. The advantage to that is if for some reason you got another bike, the 27.2 post (the size SL's use) would likely still work, whereas a larger diameter post (the regular Vado's and Como's...

    Trunk rack recommendations for ebike

    It would seem so. For example, this is what Hollywood Racks says in their FAQ: Your Hollywood Racks weight limit per bike is 35 lb. on trunk racks, so is it okay to put two 50 lb. bikes on a three-bike rack (for example)? No, the weight limits are strictly assigned on a per bike basis. The...

    Trunk rack recommendations for ebike

    The issue is that to my knowledge, no rack manufacturer sanctions their trunk mounted racks for use with e-bikes.

    Trek Powerfly 5 FS 2021

    But the hidden structural member is a part of the fender, isn't it? Say I wanted the rack on the bike, but not the fender. If I can't do that, to me that is not good design. Also, the racks like the one shown on the R&M that I have also seen on some Treks, you cannot use a rack trunk...you're...

    Trek Powerfly 5 FS 2021

    I hate all these bikes with racks that use the mudguard as a structural member. It looks cool and trendy, but it is also idiotic design.
