    Allant+7 thoughts/review

    Thanks for reporting back. I've heard that sometimes saddles can be the source of a squeak in your pedal cadence. That's great that it sounds like a fairly simple fix on your saddle!

    Allant+7 thoughts/review

    I generally agree. However, I disagree about "living with it until it gets worse." Especially in the case if it anything related to the bottom-bracket or where the cranks attach to the spline on the bottom bracket. If it is isolated to that location I would try to address it before riding much...

    allant annoying squeak

    I just noticed that you also started a new thread on this topic. I agree with @LongeLance and posted a similar response to your question here: https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/allant-7-thoughts-review.34547/post-495362 I suspect crank arms. But that Sheldon Brown site is great...

    Given that you have indicated that your chain and drivetrain is well lubed, no apparent problems with pedals, and that this occurs at the same point on every rotation of the cranks, I would suggest it may be linked to either: Cranks Bottom-bracket Pedal bearings First try spinning the pedals...

    Replacing My Schwalbe G-One Tires?

    Wear looks pretty typical for 2k miles to me. Looks like they still have some life in them.... maybe another 1k-2k. Bike tires wear faster than car tires, but they are also a lot lighter than car tires.

    You'll have no problem with big hills with the Allant+ 7 or 7s.

    Bosch 2022 updates

    Correct. The following site shows the dimensions, which indicate that the 750 Wh battery is 68 mm longer than the 625 Wh battery. And the 625 Wh battery is 67mm longer than the 500 Wh battery. https://www.bosch-ebike.com/us/products/batteries/ The Allant frames support both 500 Wh battery...

    Hitch Rack for 2 Allant+ 7s

    I've been considering doing something similar. Are the red blocks wood blocks cut to fit? How do you mount them so that they stay in place? Are they easily removed to convert back to a standard cargo (non-bike) hitch rack?

    Switching to the Allant + 7S

    Ah...got it. Thanks! Nothing wrong with the +7s! I have the 7s and love it!

    Switching to the Allant + 7S

    Do you regularly ride over 20mph on your current bike? Or do you have the desire to? If not you might consider the Allant+7 (powered support cuts out at 20mph w/Bosch performance line CX motor) rather than the Allant+7s (powered support cuts out at 28 mph w/Bosch performance line speed motor)...

    Love my Allant+7 BUT...

    Yeah, it would be nice if you could just plug into a port on the frame or something so you didn't have to stop to swap the battery.

    Allant 7

    Nothing wrong with wanting to shave some weight or upgrade components to customize your bike and really make it yours. But I wouldn't stress too much on the weight issue. I think the Como weighs about 46 or 47 lbs while the Allant weighs about 50 lbs. Have your wife carry her water bottle...

    Love my Allant+7 BUT...

    Nice! That's an elegant solution! That really extends your range and I imagine you could do some light touring with that setup. I like what you did there and I think it looks better than the Trek range booster battery pack.

    Allant+7 thoughts/review

    Wow! Beautiful! I have been thinking about those Moloko bars for a long time too. I might go for it one day... Congratulations on the bike. I have this same bike (but different color) and really like it. I think you will too!

    Will there be a 2022 Allant+ 8?

    Agreed. My previous analog road/touring bike had plastic fenders (Planet Bike Cascadia fenders) and I rode it that way for 10 years and about 15,000 miles (24,000 km). Never had any problems and the fenders looked as good as new when I sold it (minus a bit of dirt and maybe some small...

    Will there be a 2022 Allant+ 8?

    Yeah, Ortlieb panniers will work on either rack. But if you want to use a trunk bag, you may be limited on the Allant+8 rack, which is a lowrider style rack with no top platform to mount a trunk bag to.

    Will there be a 2022 Allant+ 8?

    I find it odd that Trek offers the Allant+7s (speed model; 28mph max) in both "Nautical Navy" and "Matte Quicksilver", but the standard Allant+7 (20mph max) is only offered in "Nautical Navy". The "Matte Quicksilver" is pretty close, but not identical, in color to the Allant +8 color offering...

    2021 vs. 2022 Allant+7

    From the Trek US website, the specs look pretty much identical as far as I can tell (but it's possible I may have missed something). Not sure about other countries/sales regions.
