    Upgraded my brake calipers w/ TRP cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes

    Woah! Glad they don’t make aircraft cables! I am assuming you just changed the cable, not the sheath?

    Rover suspension and brake upgrades suggestions

    Did you change the wire itself, or the sheath also? Worried about fishing the sheath through the frame. Glad you like the Spyke, I think they are a great answer to hydraulic!

    New Specialized Roll Sport and BBSO2.

    You will be removing the front derailleur and the shifter. If you want electric cutouts, the kit comes with new brake levers that have the switches built in, making the Roll with mechanical disc brakes a better choice. You will only be using the left/front brake for a cutout however, the right...

    New Specialized Roll Sport and BBSO2.

    The battery is a 48 volt 11.2 ah that ships with a Rad Power Rover. I bought a new mounting rack that matches the battery. It gives me a 40 mile range. I used a 750 display, the controller is integral to the bbs02. I went with the lever type throttle so I did not have to change grips. I hardly...

    plug and play hydraulic swap for the Rad

    I love the Spykes, they are sort of the best of both worlds. I also have hydraulic on my rover (front).

    Rim Job for your consideration.

    Obviosly, it does not glow in the dark without something shining on it, but it is one hella of a reflector. The flash makes it look hotter than it is. But if it saves one person from a hit, absolutely worth the look. It really stands out. They have colors to match most bikes too...

    Upgraded my brake calipers w/ TRP cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes

    TRP also makes the SPYKE calipers. I too weigh 270, and come down some steep hills. Brakes are the number one system on my bike.

    New Specialized Roll Sport and BBSO2.

    Nope. no gear sensor. Not needed if you stay smart about operating the bike. Just remember to not shift under load, and if you let anyone else ride it, make sure they are educated on it too. As for instructions, just used the youtube videos out there. When I bought the bike, I had the LBS take...

    Upgraded my brake calipers w/ TRP cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes

    I know not the questin you asked, BUT: You can get the Spyke fairly inexpensively, and the thing just rocks. I also have conventional hydraulic to compare with, and these are very comparable, and will never leak.

    New Specialized Roll Sport and BBSO2.

    Yep, one order from luna had everything I needed. I already had an extra battery so I just got their bbs02 kit and stuck it on. To make things easy, I told the LBS that I will buy the bike if they took the bottom bracket apart for me. After the weird look, it was all done. I love this bike, it...

    Upgraded my brake calipers w/ TRP cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes

    I like it because the brakes stay in adjustment longer, no drag, instant engagement. When adjustment is needed you only have back out the stop nut adjustment on the brake levers. They just plain work great, much better than the OEM. Plus, they are lighter than a hydraulic set. Spend the $50 and...

    Upgraded my brake calipers w/ TRP cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes

    Nope. Those are NOT hydraulic. They are friggin awesome though. Immediate and sure braking, without the complexity of hydraulic. They are different than OEM in that BOTH sides have mechanical actuators that clamp the disc, keeping the disc centered, not pinching it between one movable pad and...
