    Orbea Gain E-Road Bike

    From what I can see the Orbeas have more gearing options with two cogs in front. The Creo is a 1x. Need to test them both to see which one climbs hills better and which rides smoother. Orbea certainly has a wider range of models including aluminum frames and flatbar handles. Specialized now has...

    Orbea Gain E-Road Bike

    Has anyone compared the Orbea gains to the Specialized Creos? Obviously there is a big price difference, although they now have a "lower price" at $6500 model with a carbon frame. Just wondered if anyone had tried them both and what the difference is in ride and power.

    Orbea Gain E-Road Bike

    Hi Mike, Which flatbar gain do you have? Is it an aluminium frame? Do you notice that it rides differently than a carbon frame bike as the aluminium ones are heavier. Do you take it for long (30 to 50 mile rides?). Just wondering. They have new flatbar gain models with better components and...

    After more than 60K kms on the best hub motor in the industry, I'm a mid motor convert!

    Yes weight is a concern for me. I have an e mountain bike that weights over 50 lbs. Riding isn't a problem, it's getting on and off the bike rack. My husband made me a wooden ramp and a sort of rack to steady it so that I can get it on and off the bike rack by myself. Would prefer a lighter...

    Is anything new with Orbea Gain 2020?

    Wondering what the Orbea Gain 2020's will bring? More powerful motor? Longer distance? Or just a few style tweaks on the 2020? Just wondering if anyone knows. Would love a little more push from the motor.

    Anyone Ever Crunch a Squirrel?

    We seem to have a fair amount of "suicide squirrels" here in Santa Cruz, CA especially on any of our actual bike paths. For some reason they seem to want to run out just as bicyclists are coming up. Many, many close calls. I think one hit the spoke's of a friend's bike. Rider was OK, squirrel...

    What new light weight e-bikes are on the horizon?

    Lightweight because it just easier to ride and also easier to lift up on my bike rack. Front suspension is OK, not needed. Thicker tires would be good for our crappy roads. Weight? My weight? Does it matter? I am an average female. bike weight? Under 40 lbs would be good. 45 lbs acceptable...

    What new light weight e-bikes are on the horizon?

    Looking for a lightweight to semi-light weight e-bike with flatbar handles. Tried the Specialized Creo (no flatbar handles) but I think it is too expensive with the "cheap" one starting at $9000. Any recommendations? I prefer a level 1 with a range of 40 miles+

    Ebikemotion x35 speed limiter "fix"

    So back to the original question: Has anyone come up with a speed limiter "fix" or hack on the ebikemotion? Also, Specialized (according to rumors) is about to come out with their e road bikes. They will NOT bee using the ebikemotion motor but something else. They were supposed to announce in...

    Quote" Also, none of the software hacks work now with the recent changes specialized made. No Vado/Como can be changed via software hack. The Levo 2020 model is also not hackable along with the 2019 Levo if the software is updated." My 2019 Specialized Levo cannot be hacked via Software any...

    Bike Racks for those who can't lift a heavy bike

    There is a article on EBR about best bike racks for e-bikes, but very few manufacturers or forums talk about the difficulty of trying to lift a heavy e-bike onto a rack. If you are older, or basically not strong enough to easily lift an e-bike up, it can be really challenging. Fortunately...

    Turbo Levo Tuning

    Ok, just got a 2019 Levo Comp (aluminum frame). It doesn't go very fast downhill at all. Is there a way to fix this? Not sure what the LightBlue App does. Is there an Android version? Does it just reset the wheel size or do something else?

    What new light weight e-bikes are on the horizon?

    Are there any more manufacturers coming out with lightweight e-bikes? Is Bianchi going to expand their line from one bike to several others? I've heard rumors that Specialized is coming out with one, maybe by the end of the year, but it is just a rumor. Anyone else see anything at demo events...
