    Bosch range boost - questions

    I'm curious about Bosch's range boost for those that have them. I've been dreaming up some long distance rides (100+ miles) and I'm wondering what the charging process is like for the whole 80% charge thing. When you have both the powertube battery in the frame and the range boost attached...

    Charging cycles - battery life

    This shows my ignorance I'm sure - but I'm curious and always have been (I used to own a Nissan Leaf). When a company says a battery lasts so many charging cycles, say 1000, what does that mean. Is 1 charging cycle "used up" when I charge from 60 -> 80%? Sorry if that's a stupid question.

    First ebike century with my Allant 9.9s

    I'm thoroughly impressed! I still had to add a bit of my own effort but: 104.1 miles - started with 100% finished with 4% (bike motor shut down right as I was arriving back in town) 5 hours, 1 min and 25 seconds, elapsed time according to strava isn't far behind at 5 hours, 1 min and 40...

    Removing and reinstalling front fender on Allant 9.9s

    Has anyone removed the front fender of their Allant 9.9s? I'm a person that likes to be able to fidget, fix, make things better, etc... I'm curious how easy it is to re-install. I did remove the piece of plastic that covers the bolts that hold the fender to the wheel, but the bolts are...

    Options for tubeless for allant 9.9s

    First off - I'm not familiar with 27.5 size tires. This bike brings e-bikes as well as disc and the option for tubeless tires. I'd like to replace the bontrager tires eventually once those start wearing but want to start researching. I burn through 700c 19-23 in roughly a year and a half -...

    Ran my Allant 9.9s through some test rides - trying to determine how battery usage compares to speed and levels of assist

    Had some fun the past few days. Between 5 different days - trying to have days that had similar weather conditions - I took my Allant 9.9s for 5 separate rides. The route I chose is 25 miles with 236 ft of "climbing" (I live in the midwest). Here are the results if you're interested! It's...

    Spacer removal

    When I picked up my bike from the shop for purchase I noticed it had 3 spacers under the stem. Has anyone removed those and cut/lowered their steer tube? I'm thinking about taking it to a shop to have it done but I'm curious as I'm sure cables will need to be shortened (shift and brake for...

    Allant 9.9s rack bolt

    Something has bugged me about my Allant 9.9s since the day i brought it home. The fender is off kilter by probably quarter to half an inch. Enough that I see tire tread on the rear tire where there should just be a fender in sight. So today I started to troubleshoot the rack and fender...

    Turning lights off on bosch smartphone hub

    I've been reading in the manual that you can turn off the front and/or rear lights. I have a Trek Allant 9.9s and it seems that i should be able to press and hold the "+" button on the controls on the bars. Doesn't seem to be happening though. I tried turning it off with the cobi app via my...

    Bought a GE smartplug to charge my allant 9.9s

    Thinking I could use a nice simple countdown timer - I bought a GE smartplug for $20 today. It seemed great at first, plugged the bike in. Battery currently at 44% so set the plug to charge for only an hour. Once the hour was up - I was in the other room. I came back and the bike was on :-/...
