    Potential Solution to Giant Revolt E+ Turning Off Under Bumps

    Problem: My Revolt E+ has consistently been turning off (since mile 88, both display and assist) when going down bumpy terrain. It is especially pronounced on bumpy off-road, but happens every once in a while going over a curb or speed bump. I can then turn the bike back on with the power button...

    New Brose Displays and China Investment

    Brose came out with 3 new displays. They say they can be retrofitted too. Pretty cool-the first 2 minimal displays look like a big improvement. Separately, they are investing $335M in China for new products and equipment. Figure there will be a knock-on effect on their e-bike motors? I know...
