Will users be able to upgrade (quick swap out) between the 7.8 Ah or 10.4 Ah and the 23.4 Ah (when it is available)? It makes a purchase now of the 10.4Ah look very attractive if there would be an easy future upgrade to the super extended battery!
The cables can run inside the tube, its designed for that. However 1. We use the hydraulic disc brakes which are difficult to route inside the frame. 2. We wanted to make the bike very easy to service and internal cable routing can be insanely difficult to deal with without the right tools. So it trades a little in looks for big improvements in serviceability.Looks like a missed opportunity to internally route the downtube cables unless there wasn't enough room in the extrusion or the opening needed would've compromised the frame structurally.
Tora, With in-saddle peddling will a person be able to climb a 10-15 degree hill comfortably? ThanksWe are now testing some production parts builds of the CrossCurrent to verify the actual production materials are within spec. We have scheduled the production next week and hope to get the bikes out to sea by the end of the month.
Here the unpainted CC is running with a 10.4 Ah pack up to 28mph and maintaining the high speeds with in-saddle peddling.
We have tried it and it is possible.
