    Replacement wheels for Haibike SDURO trekking

    I'm over presta valves. For over 50 years my bikes had schrader valves. I've started kicking the tires on getting new wheels that support schraders. The way the current rims are, I don't think the hole can be widened without wrecking the stability of the rim. I'm a frugal Clydesdale. What...

    My first 10 miles on a 2017 Haibike Sduro Trekking 4.0 High-Step

    Just returned from a leisurely ride via streets and bike path. With the display off to the left, I was able to attach a handlebar pack. I like the flat handle bars, but with my hands going to the far ends of the handle, I'm not sure where to put a rear view mirror. I have to get used to the...

    More tube replacements for ebikes vs regular?

    In EBR's ebike vs bike write up, Cort shares that ebikes go through more tube replacements than regular bikes because ebikes are heavier. What has been your experience? More blown tubes, about the same, or less?

    Is it possible to use shrader tubes in Sduro Trek?

    Commuter, bike trail, fire roads and maybe trekking

    I may be looking for a unicorn: an ebike under $2k that prioritizes distance over speed; front shocks; 48v and can support a Clydesdale. Removable lcd and bottle cage is a plus. Don't care about fenders; care about reliability. Last year I purchased a Diamondback Trace ex from REI, but...

    Returned my Diamondback Trace EXC today

    I returned my Diamondback Trace EXC to REI today. I purchased the bike 6 months ago. Almost from the start the bike exhibited a 'pulling' in all levels. The local REI didn't have in-shop ebike techs, so I used REI's product specialists at their corporate offices. I found the REI product...

    What is a normal ebike riding experience?

    I purchased a DiamondBack Trace EXC from REI, and I'm trying to understand if I have a problem, or, if the tech rep from Curry is right. Issue: while riding at 20.1mph in first level assist, the bike begins to pull back, like the assist level was disengaged. When I dropped to 20mph, or below...
