    Orbea Gain M20 - Battery Life???

    Thinking about the battery here.... How do people clean their bikes from dirt and mud. Not talking the components, just getting the layer of dirt off. Is a hose okay, or is the battery going to potentially get wet?

    Orbea Gain M20 - Battery Life???

    It was probably just a little shy of 3,000' I think he rounded up when he texted me, not 3,500 but still a lot. I didn't see the Strava, he keeps track of all that and I don't. I know there were about 3 climbs over 500' and then smaller ones that just added to the total over 65 miles. I did...

    Orbea Gain M20 - Battery Life???

    I also forgot to put my age in the stats, however I'm not saying that makes any difference as Fitness level is everything. But it's somewhat relevant in the stats. My stats: Orbea Gain M30 - Medium 160 lbs / 5'9" / 34 years old I was trying to make the ride only slightly assisted until I...

    Is the 90/20 a thing the manufacturer recommends or is this just something general you believe or know to prolong the battery life?

    Orbea Gain M20 - Battery Life???

    that's amazing, I love it. Yeah i'll probably tell her I practically stole it paying $1k and can resell it for more when I'm done with it. She had no clue when I was taking it in. but going in and out is a pain in this 1895 victorian we rent, the cellar is not a bike friendly staircase. Do...

    Orbea Gain M20 - Battery Life???

    Gotcha, it's around that in Denver right now. I'll bring her inside. Hopefully my GF doesn't realize it's not my Diamondback Century 6c. Has been amazing that I diverted the UPS guy to the side of the house, did some minor assembly, got rid of the box and she still has no idea I have it. BAHAHA

    I think the issue is that I confused the lighting system, user error. I even read about this before. I forgot that the light always goes back to green when the charge is over 50%.

    Orbea Gain E-Road Bike

    I just took it for a very short test spin, i live in a Denver neighborhood so didn't go very far as I was trying to figure out the iWoc. For some reason I could only get it to go green or turn off. I was able to get orange and red to blink, but then they wouldn't stay there. Is cadence an...

    Orbea Gain E-Road Bike

    I just recently purchased a new 2019 Orbea Gain M30 (size Medium) on eBay for $2,900 all in. I feel pretty good about the price and am looking at possible carbon wheelset and cockpit updates. Whether it's actually worth the $$$ to shave roughly .5kg / 1 lb of weight and to improve the feel...
