    Creo SL Comp Carbon/EVO -- Shimano HG to SRAM XD Freehub and Cassette Swap

    Do you mean the "chain guide" or "chain keeper" will not fit the 48T ring?

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    Thanks for your response. Yes; West Virginia doesn't have mountains, but we have lots of steep hills. No, I haven't made up my mind yet, but I'm leaning toward ordering a Creo SL Expert. I was fortunate enough to have a LBS that let me test ride a Creo E5 on a 30 mile regular route with our...

    Rode the Specialized Turbo Creo SL Comp

    JayY - Can you post a pic of the 3rd party chain guide? Or, the brand? Did the dealer attach it to rear motor mount bolt? Thanks, Bill

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    I miss-spoke in my original post when I said I used 95% Eco mode, and only used Active on the steepest/longest hills. I meant to say Basic mode, not Active. Basic is the second level assist mode and Active is the third assist level out of five. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks, Bill (OP)

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    I haul my Giant around inside our Toyota Sienna van, with the rear seat folded into the floor and one second row seat slid all the way forward. I put in a couple of Thule tray racks that clamp the top of the front wheels on the floor. I can haul my size large Giant and my wife's Specialized Ruby...

    SL1 motor users - i.e. Creo, Vado SL, Levo SL

    I read that you must use a rear disc rotor on your second wheelset that has the speed sensor magnet built in. One of the aftermarket wheel posts in this thread may have mentioned the source for these rotors.

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    I contacted Giant with the same question, and was told I would have to replace the whole motor to change to Class 3 (28mph). Kinda hard to believe with all the control module programming that goes on. But, that was the Corporate answer.

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    No, Giant doesn't offer a HR controlled feature on their Ride Control app. In fact, their Ride Control app has been a real weak link in their e-bike lineup. They just released a second edition of the app, and are already having major problems with users being able to connect and update their...

    Specialized Creo SL Expert versus Giant Road-e Pro?

    Do any members have experience riding both the Specialized Creo and the Giant Road-e Pro? I'm 66 years old and have cardiac sarcoidosis. This condition causes inflammation and scarring of the heart tissue, with the scarring causing interruptions of the heart's electrical pathways. I am on a ton...

    Part Number for New Specialized Creo SL Handlebar Remote Buttons

    Here's a couple of photos posted on the Facebook Creo page, and two (2) different descriptions and PN's. Apparently one button increases assist mode, and one button decreases assist mode. Quote 1: "Brett Cruickshank according to Spesh - yes. They said ‘Yes, the new remotes can be fitted to...

    2021 Creo Road Remote?

    RobertOK - I also noticed on the Spesh Creo page, that the 2021 models appear to have a small chain guide to the inside of the 46T chainring. Looks like it mounts to the rear motor mount bolt. Can you confirm this exists, or just showing up on the webpage models? Thanks, Bill

    2021 Giant Road-e?

    Any rumors out there regarding the 2021 Giant Road-e Pro bikes? Seems like the other big manufacturers have upped the ante with carbon frames and lighter overall weights. Giant is a pioneer in the e-bike industry, so I'm hoping for some new updates to their e-road bike.

    Issues with the Turbo Creo SL (all variants)

    Is there a mounting point for a front ring chainguide on the frame area behind the chainring? The motor mount bolt is in this area, but I don't know if there is another place for a chainguide fastener. Thanks!

    Creo SL 1x Chainguide?

    Considering switching from a 2018 Giant Road-e to a Creo SL (not sure which model yet...). I've never had a road/gravel bike with a 1x chainring and wide range gearing in the rear cassette. Any need for a front chainguide on the 46T 1x chainring? A lot of my rides are on very rough paved/gravel...
