    They must have changed the battery lock with the new battery offering. My key will also come out in any position.

    Clipless or Platform Pedals?

    Ralph, great to hear you like the Dash. The Mg1's are a great value and I love mine as well.

    Bike repair stand

    Vern, I did all of my derailleur adjustments from info on the Park website, as Andrew mentioned. It's not hard, just takes a little time to read through the information and understand what the derailleur does, and how it works. I believe Park makes a device for truing a wheel as well...

    Bike repair stand

    I never used a bike stand before buying the Carbon. I did O.K, but like Vern said, at times it was difficult to do certain things without wrestling the bike around. Now that I have the stand, working on the bike is so much easier, especially with the added weight of an ebike. Where I really...

    Glad you like the Park. For the money, especially the deal you got, it's a great stand.

    Great post Vern. Glad all is working well. I like Standard mode as well for a little extra speed. I noticed a little more battery drain, but it is the only way I can maintain mid 20's for any length of time. Eco mode seems to get me 18-20mph, but getting much more really requires a lot of...

    Commuter Log

    We have had good weather here in upstate NY for the past couple of days, and I was able to add 20 miles on to the Neo Carbon. The more I ride the bike, the more happy I am for the puchase. Like Chris says, the Ebike has got me out riding again, which probably would not have happened otherwise.

    Two straight days in the 60's in New York, great for riding. Maybe this warm weather will work its' way up North!

    Just wanted to add that all of the Easy Motion bikes use the same battery, motor, controller, setup. There are many of us on the forum who own a model of the Neo series and can chime in about the operation, performance, feel, etc. of what we have, which should apply to any of the ones Court...

    I couldn't agree more. I have done a few " speed trials '' on the Neo Carbon and to maintain that type of speed for any length of time, is very difficult. I am pretty much pushing as hard and as fast as I can, and get tired out very quickly. The difference between 20mph and 27 or 28 is night and...

    Vern, good for you. I keep my carbon tires at 80psi and I've hit some decent size potholes without any issues. Nice to know the rear wheel could be changed on the road if need be.

    Very cool, Brambor. I know what you mean about the ice and snow, same problem here in upstate NY. I havn't fallen yet, but came close several times on black ice. Glad you didn't seriously hurt yourself or the bike. That bike is awesome looking, and I love the color. I saw 30mph once, briefly...

    Vern, I think James is on the right track. You may be able to put a slightly larger tire, say 700c/36/38 on, but I'm not sure it's going to help a whole lot. Those rear wheel bolts are 15mm if memory serves, so you would need to carry that size wrench along. Taking that wheel off on any bike...

    5'8" 110 pounds $2k~

    Congrats on the purchase! I think you made a very good choice. It is a solid bike for the money. I wouldn't hesitate to call Joe, the owner about the color choice, just to make sure. Please let us know what you think of the bike after receiving and riding it, reviews from owners are really...

    Eddie, I'm not surprised there may be an issue. I spent some time checking out different PAS modes on the Carbon today, and there is definitely a difference.

    Bike repair stand

    I use the Park PCS-9 and it has worked out very well. It is very sturdy, doesn't tip over and does not damage the bike in any way. The only downside is height adjustment is via an allen wrench vs a speed clamp.

    Chris, thanks for the invite. I am thinking about a mountain Ebike for the summer. The Peak looks interesting and the Haibike Xduro FX also looks very good. It may be worth while to wait until the Haibikes are avialable for test rides, and make the trip.

    Mirrors

    I decided I didn't want anything else on the handlebars so I tried one of those mirrors that attaches to your helmet/glasses. That didn't work at all, kept moving around, and was too small. I am going to try this next. Could be just the thing for a quick glance, which is really all I want, as...

    Interesting Eddie. I know you posted similar findings on Endless-Sphere, and other Neo owners found they did notice differences in the PAS modes. I'm not sure why some of us do and others don't. I do know that my battery level goes down quicker in the higher PAS modes, and that I can feel and...

    I usually wait until I am showing 2 bars left, then I charge. I think the only real no,no is to store the battery for long periods of time with a low charge. BTW, these batteries have no memory so charging with one bar down should not hurt. There is definitely a difference between the modes of...
