I own a super commuter 8 S and they are a fine bike, but, lacking in suspension. a good seat post w/suspension and stem with shock absorbtion will take care of that. Price at 3K is fair providing the battery and bike have not been mistreated.
I bought a Kinekt bodyflow seat post by: https://cirruscycles.com/ LOVE IT! once the sag was set it floats my backside. I also installed a gripfast micro stem shocka absorber and it raises me more upright but does a very good job for the money...
@Bruce Arnold - folks seem to misinterpret my intent. I am NOT upset. I, as a consumer demand truth in advertising. If Bosch would simply advertise the truth 26 mph cutout or 43 kph all good. Same for Trek. Why lie? Why overstate? Why manipulate the consumer?
@tompat - this vehicle report intrigues me for another reason as well: Maximum assistance factor of 2.8?
2.8 of what? part of me wonders if this is where someone is getting the 28 # from? long shot but info would be helpful.
thanks in advance.
I ordered a new Riese & Muller charger mixte step through style fram. Got the gates belt drive with the Nuvinci hub version for my wife last week. I think the nuvinci will accommodate the way she pedals nicely.
2 months or more before we see it.
@John from Connecticut - it would seem that ANY consumer as a RIGHT to truth in advertising. My pleasure is not at issue - the facts are at issue. I think responsibility rests with the maker of an item to properly list what something will or wont do...PERIOD. The public needs to hold...
Based on what I have learned and some input from others: how does this make you feel?
To know that a major part supplier / manufacturer is knowingly telling you/me something they "KNOW" to be false.
To KNOW that the downstream bike manufacturer then REPEAT the lie - in my case TREK.
No worries on my end, I don't worry or fret over much of anything - I just find it disturbing that "big business" in general, doesn't feel we the consumer, is worthy of the TRUTH. I really appreciate the good info!
@tompat - you folks are AMAZING at your ability to dig up the good stuff. This post in and of itself, says it all. Does anyone think this creates false advertising? What is the financial benefit or legal benefits to fudging the numbers?
@AlanDB - what an awesome link - I believe informationally - this is the end of the road in a manner of speaking. Adding one more sublink to it: https://caselaw.findlaw.com/ca-court-of-appeal/1587343.html
For me I would like to know about accuracy but as far as holding anyone accountable, it...
@AlanDB - I think consumers would always be wise to wave the bull poop flag in the face of nonsense - such as the bucket load your car dealer gave you. The consumer has a right to get what they pay for (accuracy being one thing) OR a manufacturer needs to be forth coming and honest about the...
Please remember the initial question my post is asking - is there an error in the Bosch speed calculation methodology?
My happiness is not at stake; I love riding bicycles of all types all the time.
My question is very specific to the indicated speed on a product advertised to go up to a...
@Mr. Coffee - I don't believe gps in general are more accurate - in my case they were my first observation that something was different.
The Honda CRV pacing me at 20 mph and then 25 mph and then 28 mph has a very accurate speedometer and I was surprised that the cars speed was the same as the...
@Mr. Coffee - Thanks! Exactly what I am looking for; but percent of what? Percent(s) can be great or little so what did the difference translate to in MPH or KPH? Thanks in Advance! Looking forward to more info.
