    Handlebar Bags : Experiences & Recommendations

    A well-timed thread here since I'm looking for a new front bag; my current one (Iberra quick-release) just broke yesterday. What I need: a bag that is rigid/durable enough to carry my mid-size camera (Sony RX10, size about 5" x 4" x 5" and 2.5 lbs) over fairly rough/bumpy off-road terrain. I...

    EggRider for Bafang Ultra?

    Yes, that's what seemed to be happening. I'd navigate away from the Eggrider app/screen to use another app, and when I came back to it, mileage, etc. had not continued to be logged, etc. Using the phone as a display was never something I had planned to do, however, so I didn't troubleshoot...

    EggRider for Bafang Ultra?

    Hi smorgasboard! Have you had a chance to do many rides with your phone as Eggrider display while running these other apps/tasks? I've not done that many times, but the few times I did the Eggrider display didn't work real well. It didn't appear to run in the background or when I switched...

    EggRider for Bafang Ultra?

    I've never heard of anyone of connecting both at the same time but I'd like to if it were possible. I like the analytics the Eggrider provides, but as a usable display/controller it is not very good in my opinion (check out this video where another user offers some first impressions)...

    Is this bike good for conversion to BBSHD e-bike?

    Hi Almin, I'm not experienced enough to provide a good answer to your question. I just wanted to recommend that if you haven't already, post your question to one of the forums over at https://electricbike.com/forum/, where there's lots of discussion of installing BBSHD kits onto specific...

    Why are Brooks Saddles known for comfort?

    Not sure where you're at, but I bought one of these 'damaged' tins from an eBay seller from UT. Arrived in a few days and the tin itself looked fine; maybe it ordinarily comes with some other packaging that is missing with the tin, but the tin/proofide was fine and the price was right :)

    Want to buy: Lekkie Bling chainring 42T

    Sounds like most folks who buy these like them/keep them, but if you have one you're not wanting to keep for whatever reason, let me know what we can work out. Thanks!

    Why are Brooks Saddles known for comfort?

    A question for you Brooks-riders... My B67 'aged'/'softened' comes with instructions to not apply Proofide to the top like you would the standard Brooks models. I live in a relatively drier climate and I would think that some kind of moisturizing treatment to the top from time to time would be...

    Why are Brooks Saddles known for comfort?

    Well I've ordered/will be trying their B67 'softened'/'aged' which they claim is 'comfortable from Day 1.' I'm sure there's some trade-off in longevity/durability in the leather used for these 'aged' versions, but realistically my riding/biking is such that I don't need maximum...

    Why are Brooks Saddles known for comfort?

    Any of you Brooks riders use/hear of speeding the break-in process by soaking the saddle in warm water for 5 minutes or so and then riding until dry? Here's the typical approach; this guy's method is a bit more involved. This was a popular way of breaking in heavy leather boots during my Boy...

    Raising the handlebar on a '19 Vado 3.0

    Absolutely. If you have a bike (e or otherwise) that checks all/most of your boxes, and there are no alternatives available, then obviously you have no choice but to go down this road if you aren't satisfied with the "original" riding position. I'm just saying that for many people, making this...

    Raising the handlebar on a '19 Vado 3.0

    This thread has got me thinking/reading more about some recent modifications to my stem/handlebar of my 26" fat bike over the past two years. My most recent change involved replacing the handlebar. Although the specs on the bar appeared similar to the one it replaced (needed to replace the...

    Hello! Just read your posts on a thread about the Brooks saddles. You posted a pic with a Brooks Flyer (?) on your fat bike. Looks great...what color is that that you ordered? Thanks! Colin

    Raising the handlebar on a '19 Vado 3.0

    Good replies here. Bottom-line it takes a lot of experimentation--and perhaps buying/trying a couple different pieces like those highlighted here--to achieve a good "fit." Just make sure you crank your handlebar/cockpit hard right and hard left during the "fitting" process to make sure your...

    Improving BBSHD chainline: 42T Lekkie or Eclipse?

    Hey thanks Thomas, I appreciate all this information! An eBiker over at ES said I should also consider whether I really need/use those smallest cogs, and if not move them behind the largest ones as 'spacers' to improve the chainline towards those largest ones. Obviously would need to adjust...

    Improving BBSHD chainline: 42T Lekkie or Eclipse?

    I'd like to improve the chainline on my BBSHD fat bike. Attached photos will show my current setup with the Eclipse 36T ring. I'm not throwing the chain, but shifting is rough and certainly there's chain wear when I'm in the larger rear cogs of my Sunrace CSMS8 11-46. I have the 120mm BBSHD and...

    Why do people hate cyclists?

    These threads are always interesting/informative to read. I think social psychology has more to say about this than anything particular to cyclists versus motorists, etc. Humans evolved in tribal circumstances, and too many people still self-identify in tribal terms. Tribalism creates...

    *SOLD* FS: Lightly used Batt-Man digital dashboard amp hour fuel display/gauge

    * SOLD * Used about 2 months; works perfectly and screen protector still in place. I just don't find myself using/needing the amp-hour information like I thought I would. I've wired in XT 90s (anti-spark) connectors/pigtails that I'll leave "as is"; obviously these can be removed/replaced...
