  • Hi! Thanks again for your thoughts on Homie vs. Motobecane ULTRA eAdventure! Love Moto EXCEPT 40 Nm = very demanding on hills. Updating firmware & using lockouts helps, lighter jacket helps, so it's close! Everything else = great! Consider:
    1) Replace motor w/ E6100 or better. (Likely impossible.)
    2) Drop 3 lbs- it's now 49 = change tires + CF swaps.
    3) Suck it up, get ripped + new bike in 2-3 years.
    What think?

    Replacing the motor would be quite difficult... maybe impossible!

    I'd say "suck it up and get ripped" method. It's amazing what the human body can adjust to! If it's still too demanding after a few weeks... maybe then it's time to look at shedding weight anywhere possible 🤣

    Getting more fit: Downside - You become irritable and distracted until you ride, then you are all mellow and present until it happens again. Your rides then start becoming longer to get the original feeling. Upside - A woman who saw me at a café in kit on Friday said I looked great, checking my legs and asked me out.
    I have some questions about the Espin Flow and Sport. You said the candence sensors are not protected and the magnets could fall out over rough roads. Is there any way to cover them? Tape? Something?

    Also, I'm female, 5'2" and my husband is 5'5". Do you think the Flow and Sport seat can be set at 32" from ground to top of the seat?
