    Where are all the goodies from Interbike?

    I'm really hoping some of Haibike's off road models (either sduro or xduro) will be speed pedalec. I've heard rumors this is the case. Can anyone confirm? I'd love to know specs and release date!

    Issue with my Pioneer Allroad

    So I bought some tools and took things apart. Spider nut seemed tight and I was getting discouraged. I went ahead and took the nut off and removed the chainrings and that's when I noticed that one of the bolts that holds the smallest chainring on (the ones you can't see with the chainrings in...

    Issue with my Pioneer Allroad

    Side to side play is very minimal, but as I play with it, I am noticing separate movement/ wobbling if I move the chainrings. I am pretty sure the grinding sound is coming from behind the chainrings. Ugh. How do I go about getting this fixed? I am in Virginia, and the weather is just starting to...

    Issue with my Pioneer Allroad

    I've seen some videos of regular bikes with seemingly the same problem. The bottom bracket is just loose and can be tightened with a few specialty tools. Seems like that may be my problem, but I just don't know how this Motorized bottom bracket works.

    Issue with my Pioneer Allroad

    Crank arms are tight. I guess I bring it to my local shop and see if they will contact Optibike if necessary. Any thoughts @Optibike_Austen ?

    Issue with my Pioneer Allroad

    I was riding this weekend and noticed a quiet grinding sound with each turn of the crank. I thought it was the chain rubbing the front derailleur but that wasn't it. I put it on my stand and I can reproduce the sound but I see nothing rubbing. Then I noticed that I can get slight side-to-side...

    What could be better?

    I am really hoping for a 2016 hard tail MTB with speed pedelec. I don't like having to buy a dongle and deal with an inaccurate speedo when all the capability is already there and just needs to be unlocked from the factory. Any idea if this is in the works?

    Upgrade my Pioneer Allroad for harder trail use, or sell for Haibike?

    Very nice. That is a great fork. How many miles on your Allroad? Any issues? Are you still using the stock drivetrain?

    Great Optibike customer service

I noticed it when I...

    Upgrade my Pioneer Allroad for harder trail use, or sell for Haibike?

    Does anyone know if there are any restrictions to changing cranks and chainrings on the Pioneer Allroad? Can the stock triple chainring be replaced with another triple or double chainring? I'm not sure if the stock setup is specific to the motorized bottom bracket or the pedal assist sensors...

    Upgrade my Pioneer Allroad for harder trail use, or sell for Haibike?

    Good to hear. Have you decided which fork to get?

    Upgrade my Pioneer Allroad for harder trail use, or sell for Haibike?

    Yes, not a lot of miles yet, but I'm working on that! :) So, would you say the difference between this bike being a good commuter and being a good trail bike is just upgrading the discussed parts? Just wanting to make sure I've got a strong enough platform (and motor) before I start spending...

    Upgrade my Pioneer Allroad for harder trail use, or sell for Haibike?

    My Pioneer Allroad is about a year old and has roughly 300 miles. It's tons of fun and I've had zero problems. The issue is that I've been riding it on offroad trails more than I expected and It has very entry level components (Suntour XCT fork, Shimano Altus drivetrain, rims, etc). I am...
