    Turbo (hub drive) powers on, lights cycle, but no power to wheel

    Has anyone seen this? Battery is charged and everything appears to be normal but there's no power to the wheel. I tried turning on/off a few times and even removed the battery. Any ideas for things I can check myself before going to the shop? It was stored for the last 2 weeks in weather from...

    Garmin Varia RTL510 Radar Tail Light Bundle - Initial Impression

    @gadgetnut 1 year later I'm curious how you are liking the Garmin. I just picked one up and think I will like it but have only tried it once so far.

    Turbo S thumb control

    Maybe contact a larger Specialized shop in the US - they were in stock as of last year when I got mine replaced.

    Best tire for the wet

    I'm very happy with the Almotions as well. 29 / 700 x 50 with tubes. Over 4000 miles on the front and 3500 on the rear (had to replace when I rode over a straight razor that slashed the side of my tire - not the tire's fault) and still plenty of life left.

    Turbo Owners -- What's your total mileage? [OFFICIAL MILEAGE THREAD]

    Update: I'm around 5,800 miles (~9,400km) as of 12/1/2019. No issues in a few thousand miles. OEM chain lasted over 5k miles. Replaced Shimano pad with Jagwire and they have lasted *much* longer with no significant performance decrease. (2016 Turbo X with the GoSwiss hub drive)

    Battery attachment with water bottle bolt came loose

    For reference, the whole black cap is threaded and screws in and out. I did it by hand to get to the shop but something like channel locks or pliers would probably get it plenty tight.

    Anyone Ever Crunch a Squirrel?

    Hit one on the MUP going probably 25-26 mph. I didn't want to but he jumped right in front of me and the wheel went right over him (don't remember if it was front or rear). I saw him run off into the trees so he was still alive!

    Battery attachment with water bottle bolt came loose

    This is at least those with 2013-2016/7 Turbos with the battery integrated into the downtube and water bottle cage bolts that screw into round screw-looking things that actually screw into the battery. Perhaps it's also the same on later models. The screw / circular bolt that goes into the...

    Fender recommendations for Turbo (hub drive)

    bumping thread in case anyone else has leads for an off-the-shelf fender system that will work on a Paragon fork up front (stock OEM) and the Turbo X's rear wheel.

    Best battery charging practice.

    One thing I don't know is whether leaving your battery at 30% or 20% or 10% or whatever for a few days or a week or longer harms the battery. How much benefit is there from taking the trouble to charge it up to 40-60 after every ride (and then charging again the night before you actually ride).

    Real competition from the new Trek Allant+

    I am happy with my 2016 Turbo X (hub drive), but if I needed a new bike, this would be pretty competitive and definitely worth a look: The...

    Best battery charging practice.

    I think Specialized has put some thought into this and "fully" charging the batteries isn't actually 100% - that's why they can last so long. I charge mine completely before each ride and after about 4500 miles on this battery the app says it is still at like 95 or 96% of original capacity.

    Pannier for Vado

    I don't have a Vado, so I can't comment on fitment / attachment, but I do have an Arkel bag (made in Canada) and it's fabulous. Very happy and the attachment system is top notch. Really high quality product and well worth the price - it looks and performs great after years of commuting.

    Cleaning and washing Vado

    I use the white lightning spray cleaner and then gently hose it off. I wipe/dry with a microfiber towel. Easy enough, no issues, and the bike looks great (until my next foray onto the dirt)...

    Schwalbe Energizer Plus tires popping off wheel

    FWIW, I've been using Schwalbe Almotion tires on my 2016 Turbo X and have been quite happy. The only flats are ones that no tire could have prevented.

    Ordered my 2020 Vado 4.0

    Sounds like a great move to keep your health and sanity (plus save some time). What are your current commute options and how long do they take? Where in Europe are you? I've got around 5000 miles (8000 km) on my Turbo (prior gen with the hub drive) and it has really been amazing for my commute!

    Specialized Turbo Creo 28mph Electric Road Bike

    Am I off or is that battery size a complete deal breaker? My Turbo X (hub drive) has a 691 Wh battery (over 2x the size of this one) and realistic range at Eco60 (60% assist) is roughly 30 miles (cruising at 26-27 mph and pedaling hard). You would be hard pressed to get 20 miles out of this...
