    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    OK, got 2 brand spanking new chainguards/bash guards ( 1 for a spare, just in case), and I put it on today. After 10 miles, pop, it sheared off again. No road obstructions, no irregularities of any condition of the pavement, just plain, smooth asphalt roads, and pop. I can only make an...

    Cannot believe the price increase

    ALL of these killers, hot, new, tricked out bikes are FANTASTIC for the young...but as we "oldies" who just love to push the pedals with a little bit of help for assistance, its way overkill unless your genetics let you mountain bike like a youngin once you are over 60. Just sayin. Sure, I'd...

    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    And the beat goes on.....sheesh I asked: Zach, Thanks for the reply, however, the most important part of the question has yet to be answered. The length of the screw! 5 = Size of the Allen (tool). I have measured the bolts, they are 8MM, I can only find 7MM. He replied: Hi, thanks for reaching...

    I called the Mothership today to validate. (Specialized), their reply: Hi, thanks for reaching out! Ok, my original guess was correct, but I had to verify. M8 x.75 x 5 is the dimension for those chainring bolts. Ride On! Zach | Specialized USA Rider Care | ref:_00D15FMfu._5004R1gSlv9:ref Can...

    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    He did say, that they were "standard", did not have any, not offer to order any. I don't necessarily need any.....yet, however, after removing the chainring a few times and threading with Locktite, I thought it would be proactive to have a few spares just in case.... Man, such a simple part, so...

    Searching the barcode, I get: https://eandata.com/lookup/0072774220540/ Amazon says: https://www.amazon.com/Origin8-Single-Ring-Chainring-Bolts/dp/B002I7REMU?th=1&psc=1 "SIZING: Inside measures 4mm when tightened, 7mm total height" OEM Vado spider arm (threaded) does not use 'nut'. So, after...

    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    Stefan, they OEM Vado/Praxis chainring bolts are IDENTICAL to the one I got, 100%, you just don't need the nut, as the OEM mounting is threaded See photo

    Lumos Ultra

    HUH? I do!!! As an "early" adopter, as well as a BETA Tester (1st Kickstarter Edition) for them, one might think that if they have had my money for close to a YEAR, that it might have some pull. Regardless, young, snot-nosed college kids with horrible customer service and support are now...

    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    Went to LBS today, asked, was told he did not have any but they were 'standard single chainring bolts'. Anyone got a source to have a spare set?

    Vado firmware update

    Took mine in for an update today, I was told that the battery was not an available update (for my LBS anyway), but the display and motor. Now to see what, if anything. Does anyone have any knowledge as to what the updates were addressing, changes?

    Chain guard sheared off of chain ring + a few other things

    I have had zero issues with the OEM equipment, no flats, etc., however, I saw Stefan got those thorn-resistant tubes with his 2" tires, though it would the killer combo to keep it from any possible flats, etc.
