    How fit do you have to be to climb hills on an e-bike?

    Magnificent videos JayVee! Great rides. Quite familiar country although its been a while. The sections between Morges and Cossonay (Gollion) were particularly familiar. You must be very fit !! Impressive. Some of your descent speeds were astonishing to me and the...

    Two New Trekking's - need advice on a few things

    Yes, as JayVee mentioned, I have found an adapter plate on Ebay Germany and ordered it, received it and am very happy with it. I am puzzled why it was so hard to get but a little persistence helped. Knowing German helped me. I got it from WWW.Mega-Bikes.de who will ship to USA (Vereinigte...

    Dropper seatpost on Sduro Trekking

    Well I have now ridden with the dropper. It will take just a little getting used to. It definitely makes getting on and off the bike easier which is a particular need for me. Now when stopping, I can get my feet down with significantly more confidence, just by pushing the lever on the...

    Dropper seatpost on Sduro Trekking

    Unfortunately no. We had planned to yesterday but a rain storm changed our minds. Mountain weather can sometimes be cantankerous as well you know. Hopefully today :-)

    Dropper seatpost on Sduro Trekking

    I have installed a cable operated Dropper post on my 2016 Sduro Trekking SL. Routing the cable was done by running the cable down inside the down tube from the existing downtube cable entry point then underneath the Yamaha motor and up inside the seat tube which I feel is a very clean and...

    Help needed to pick dropper seatpost

    I have now installed my Dropper post. Installation was not really difficult. I plan to post pictures on the Haibike section and I hope to ride the bike very soon too, weather permitting.

    Hi folks. Is this where I can get advice about my Haibike?

    As the famous bard said they "gang aft agley". I hope the procedure goes without a hitch and you are back on your feet and wheels really soon.

    Dongling

    I am interested in your posting but not understanding really what you mean when you say "spinout". Is this when you reach a pedalling cadence which is your max or something governed by the bike's computer. I realize you use a dongle. Please excuse my ignorance.

    I too have bought the Park Tool chainring bolt tool now. I managed with a home made one but since you made me aware of the Park Tool stuff, I bought it. I have not used it yet and I am still riding on the stock 38t ring. Putting a dropper post on to help me get on and off easier is a...

    Help needed to pick dropper seatpost

    To be fair to you guys and to thank you for your helpfulness, I will explain that I have not bought a Giant Contact Dropper seat post as it seems its not available for 31.6 mm. I feel sure it is a good model otherwise. I have not bought a Magura wireless dropper either as I found it pricey...

    Help needed to pick dropper seatpost

    After chatting to a mechanic where I bought my Haibikes bikes (online) he confirmed to me that I can run the dropper seatpost cable down inside the down tube, under the motor and then up into the seat tube to the bottom of the dropper post and I think that is what I will do. This changes the...

    Help needed to pick dropper seatpost

    Thanks for the very helpful comments guys. Interesting that others need a dropper for similar reasons as me. I have been studying some as suggested and am pretty sure I have found one that should work for me. It is a KS Lev DX which has a diameter of 31.6 mm and an extension of 100 mm...

    I can understand that. I too am very pleased with mine and apart from trying a Pedego at the beach, its the only e-bike I have ridden. i think there are far fewer e-bikes in USA and in this quiet little corner they are unknown. We don't even have a bike shop locally, let alone one...
