    Great review. I really wanted to buy a Wheel for my recumbent trike but my analysis is that there isn't sufficient range for road riding. My minimum requirement was 30 miles with 30 feet per mile of elevation gain averaging 17 mph. But in all fairness the Wheel was designed for short distance...

    My Falco review

    Harry let us know when you get the new app update and how well it works. Did it fix the old issues without creating new ones. BTW are you using IPhone or Android? I have a relatively new Motorola Droid. Do you know if the android app and Apple app work about as well?

    My Falco review

    I don't own a Falco yet but have been studying the Falco and other systems with torque sensor. Yes the Falco has a torque sensor. The owner Rakesh told me the Dolphin style battery pack can charge a phone but not the Shark style. Performance looks to be the same just different style pack. I...

    What are your Falco settings?

    It is my understanding there is no longer a need to do a torque sensor calibration for 2018 systems. Is this correct? I believe Harry uses his phone and not a display. Anyone else using the phone and any issues doing so? The Dolphin battery pack allows a phone to charge from the...

    My Falco review

    Harry once the app is installed on the phone do you need cell service to connect? If you drop service in the boonies while riding does the motor continue to run as though no cell service was lost? Without cell service during a ride can you change assist levels? Thanks Mike

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Harry Simplicity 7.7 is the same as the 7.9 but a dolphin style pack. Rakesh said this pack will allow recharging of the cell phone while riding. The 7.9 doesn't. Rakesh answered my questions. The good news is the various videos I've seen regarding the need to calibrate the sensor and the...

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Great Harry. I am recovering from big time back surgery I had about five weeks ago-fused four levels L2-S1. Right now I can't bend, twist or lift more than 5lbs. But I feel good. Beginning of October I start PT and can ride a road bike I have set up on a Wahoo Kickr. When I have the ability...

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Harry your response is very heartening. The Falco offers all the features I want regarding an e-motor on my Catrike. If I get one I will take you up on your offer if I need help. I have a call into Falco to discuss questions I have. I have been pouring over the web site and reviewing videos...

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    I am looking for e-assist for a recumbent trike-a Catrike Dumont. I am only interested in a system that has a good responsive torque sensor. On paper the Falco looks really good and has all the features I want. I've read the Falco site a lot and reviewed a number of videos. It seems rather...

    Harry please post your experience with purchase/delivery of the Falco and how well it operates. Hopefully I am wrong re: timing of delivery.

    Harry i don't have a ebike but I have been studying e-assist kits for a Catrike recumbent trike. The recumbent shop where I bought my trike loves the Bionx and has more than he wished he had in stock=expensive paper weights. Falco looks like it would perform similar to the Bionx but the...
