    I am posting this thread to get feedback from people with e-bike building and modifying experience. If you have had success with a kit or custom build from scratch, what would you do different on the next DIY e-bike project? Have any homebuilders welded additional frame support in the bottom...

    Has anyone tried a Badass 4 speed unlock?

    I have been looking at this speed unlock device. Every time I pedal above 28mph the e assist shuts off. This happens after every hill in my area. On a traditonal non e-bike it was no big deal to pedal in the lower 30's after a hill and take advantage of the road grade. Wish I could do the same...

Minimal rolling resistance for road and not good on gravel. Considering this tire for road use but need to make a...

    R&M Turbo Metric

    A long time ago I use to cheat the wind with all sorts of aero tricks. In present day I now cheat the wind with more watts from an extra battery. Absolutely nothing aero about this setup but man it flies regardless of how heavy the bike is. Quite the fun experience riding the R&M TurboMetric.

    Tire rollout calculation?

    I did not realize the Kiox setting for wheel size is in cm as the Kiox displays inches. I now understand why the Kiox default is questionable after viewing a "Wheel Circumference" post from May, 2019.

    Nyon upgrade or Garmin for GPS?

    Has anyone been using a Garmin for GPS and had the opportunity to campare it with a Nyon. I want to start using GPS on the Delite and I have zero experience with either Garmin or Nyon.

    Any potential rain issues with pre 2020 battery mounts, Bossch drive or Rohloff?

    My rookie question for the evening. I notice the current R&M bikes have batteries integrated into the frame. The bike I have has batteries that clip onto the frame. Wondering if anyone has had any electronic issues when commuting in the rain with batteries exposed to moisture. Also wondering...

    I have a question about the bolts installed on components of the Delite. What is the technical name for the bolts on this bike? I need to update my bike toolkit so I can make adjustments when needed. The L wrench set I currently have is not going to work with this bike. What do other R&M...

    I received my Delite yesterday and hoping someone can explain the correct process for repositioning the stem. The components with the bike are different than traditional bikes I have owned and worked on in the previous years. I am wondering if the black plastic cap on top of the stem is...

    Tire options for Delight

    I am planning to ride a Delight and nearly all mileage will be on roads instead of trails. Road conditions in my area are not the best with cracked pavement, rumble strips in some shoulders and a lot of debris from construction trucks. Some gravel shoulder riding when roads are under...
