    Stock Suntour vs Fox Float 34 Forks

    Just an update: I finished the Fox 34 install yesterday. The difference is obvious, much more compliant which is what I was looking for. Fox doesn't supply the ebike specific fork with 100 mm of travel only 120 mm, so I had to change the air assembly in order to get the correct travel. It was...

    SuperDelite pedals too close to ground :-/

    Yup, found it. This adapts the progression curve in eMTB mode and also offers increased support in Tour mode, offering maximum power up-hill. Marc

    SuperDelite pedals too close to ground :-/

    Surprise for me as well. I would imagine it only applies to bikes with eMTB mode but the description doesn't specify. New Update For Short eMTB Crank Arms Most riders run regular length cranks (170-175mm) but on an eMTB you tend to tackle harder climbs and the electric mountain bike allows you...

    SuperDelite pedals too close to ground :-/

    No, it wouldn't. Computer keeps track of cadence among other things which isn't affected by the crank arm length. Marc

    Rohloff E-14

    I have one of those on my bike. It puts the buttons in a very convenient position. Marc

    SuperDelite pedals too close to ground :-/

    It has no effect on the gear ratio but it will decrease the pedal speed, ie: how fast your feet move and therefore will increase your effort in a given gear. Marc

    SuperDelite pedals too close to ground :-/

    One thing to bear in mind when considering changing wheel travel of just one wheel and that is you will also be changing the geometry. If you lift only the front you will slow the steering down and if you lift only the rear you will make it steer quicker which could have the side effect of...

    Superdelite engine jerk when kicking-in

    Does it matter which assist level you’re in? Which gear do you start in? Marc

    Superdelite engine jerk when kicking-in

    Is it possible to describe it with a bit more detail. I'm not sure what a twitch is. Marc

    Stock Suntour vs Fox Float 34 Forks

    This fork is extremely easy to service. I completely disassembled it and performed the factory recommended service which includes soaking the felts in oil which are supposed to keep the tubes/bushings lubricated. I also re-greased the seals as suggested using the proper lubricant. On reassembly...

    Stock Suntour vs Fox Float 34 Forks

    Does anyone have experience with the stock Suntour fork that comes on the Delite vs the upgraded Fox Float 34? I'm looking for something more compliant than the stock Suntour. I went through it about 300 miles ago and lubed everything which helped but now its back to where it was. If the Fox...

    Alternative tyres for Superdelite - optimised for puncture resistance

    I just thought of another potential problem. I have FOBO 2 tire pressure monitors installed as well and I'm wondering what effect the Slime might have on the sensors. I sent an email to FOBO asking. BTW, the FOBO 2 monitor works perfect for me. It monitors tire pressure 24/7 even when the bike...
