    Lookiing at a Demo 2018 Xduro 7.0

    Thanks Mike. I ended up with the adjustable SKS version that clamps onto (on mine) the bottom of the seat post. We'll see how that holds up next ride.

    Lookiing at a Demo 2018 Xduro 7.0

    Found several on Amazon. Main thing is I use my remote seat post alot. Not sue that's going to be a good choice for placement. As we know the squarish frame tube is iffy for mounting but that's probably where I'll need to mount one. Thought I saw an SKS velcro water bottle mount on YouTube that...

    Thanks for the link. I shouldn't have used the description as 'Demo". My bad. ;)

    Lookiing at a Demo 2018 Xduro 7.0

    O.K., so it's actually the shop bike they use to take others on trail tours. What's your point? I have faith that Sam's word on a 'full 2 year warranty' is what it is. Meantime, I'll be tweaking the ergos, and trying to figure away to hold a water bottle. Yeah, I have a Camelback but hate...

    Yamaha or Bosche ?

    I dunno. New to this but I just test rode a 2018 Bosch CX back to back with a 2018 Yamaha on the street and it felt anemic in comparison. Went with the Yam.

    Lookiing at a Demo 2018 Xduro 7.0

    I'm in Acton. I did the same. Actually at the Santa Clarita shop. Sam showed me the shop bike and it just seemed to be the one after riding 2 others. So it's a done deal. LimboJim - Yes 2K miles but full warranty. They do MTB tours and rentals so they do have miles on them. This particular one...

    Lookiing at a Demo 2018 Xduro 7.0

    Been doing alot of research before I found this forum in the past week. Hit the local Haibike shop and looking at demos to save. I have about a $3K budget. I'm a veteran motorcycle rider, both street and dirt. My MTB biking ended a good 20 years or so ago, thought I'd never do it again so gave...

    Noob from SoCal Desert

    Electric bicycle? Heard of them. Seemed like a yuppy-ish techno thing. I haven't ridden my mountain bike since I gave my Rockhopper away to my son in law 10 years ago. I save my knees for motorcycle dualsporting. We live up on a hill. The paved streets are hills. The driveway is a steep hill...
