    2nd Battery for G3 Trail - other FLX batteries are available

    @bridge, click on one of the two links on my OP and connect with Max. He'll know. He walked me through finding/providing the correct battery for my G3.

    I don't see why it should hurt anything. Nor should using the highest PAS for that matter. Let 'er rip.

    Trail / Step Through FLX questions

    It seems, after looking/listening to the video they want you to open the motor, they are admitting your new bike is defective. Otherwise what is the reason for opening the motor? Prima facie case that they need to remedy the situation under warranty. Just keep on keeping on. Your credit card...

    Trail / Step Through FLX questions

    Let us know how this all shakes out. Their treatment of some of their customers - like you - has been abominable.

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    I'm all for a "live throttle" and use my throttle just as you describe. I was speaking as an advisor to FLX now that they've done something for us end users that could possibly put them at some risk to ambulance chasing attorneys.

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    As a former Risk Manager, I can understand the safety aspect of not having the throttle "hot" when the bike is on. Especially after having had my bike get away from me once and had my hand pinned on the throttle as it wedged itself against a cabinet in my garage (I learned to make sure the bike...

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    It is nice to hear that FLX has been responsive on this issue. Kudos to them!

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    You would think a company like Bafang would allow the customer to make these kinds of decisions via menu options. But what do I know, I'm just an end user. 😟

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    Nope, purchased prior to the Special Editions which are relatively new additions to the line-up. Can't understand why they made the change unless it was for a safety reason - I have accidentally hit the throttle a couple of times when moving my bike around in the garage w/the power on and it...

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    For sure the throttle on my G3 Trail works from a dead stop. I have found it is often easier to start from a dead stop using the throttle than peddle - much less wobble in difficult situations. BUT I have had my G3 since Feb, perhaps they have changed the configuration. IMHO, it would be...

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    Yes, the throttle works from a stop - at least my G3 Trail does and I use it just for that purpose. You can verify with FLX, but it will be shipped with a console that limits the speed at 20 or 28mph - your choice. It is not programmable. I checked with FLX regarding just that and they told...

    Throttle from a dead stop?

    That is correct, the plug is in the wiring harness (actually it is tucked away inside the downtube). If your universal throttle had the proper plug-end perhaps it would work. You could always try and if not, you can always order the $55 throttle from FLX. I believe no one answered your OP is...

    Lost my charger and want some advice.

    Biker, I don't know about the Giant battery but I bought the Luna charger ( 48v version). It comes with a (male) XT-60 connector on the end of the charging cord. Luna sells XT-60 connector pigtails and, if your battery is a simple barrel connector, you can also purchase a barrel connector from...

    Are puncture resistant tires harder to change.

    I purchased Schwalbe Smart Sams and they were not more difficult to change than the stock tires on my bike which were 27.5x2.25's. One thing I did notice was that the sidewalls of the Sams were more substantial than my stock tires. To me that was an indication of an upgrade of tire quality -...

    Picture of trail fork tire clearance

    After having the displeasure of having a flat, I replaced the stock tires looking for more puncture protection with Schwalbe Smart Sam Plus. I also liked the Schwalbe Marathon Plus which has even more puncture protection but does not roll quite as well. However, the flat I had was not the...

    Picture of trail fork tire clearance

    I replaced the stock 2.1in-wide tires with 2.25s without issue. Still have plenty of space - 1/2" clearance both front and rear. I would be concerned with how wide of tires the rims could safely support if you were thinking anything any wider.
