Frey CC

Thank you thats nice of you! i hear the new update "tool" helps the torque sensing quite a bit on the m600. In addition rumor has it that it will also allow the m600 to go to 11. 😋

The Luna X1 still meets my needs so not planning to sell but you can drop by if you want to test ride (I'm in Issaquah). Just drop me a direct mesage.
not planning to sell? I guess it is time for an offer you can't refuse.


Joking aside, I really like x1 good components/power at a very good price. I am just a bit worried about the carbon frame, how is it holding up? Any quality issues ?

I noticed today on my ride with CC, I couldn't get into the highest gear (11th or 12th whatever it is) unless I switched over to Turbo and 5 PAS. Boy then it goes like H***!!

Probably need to adjust your derailler. Not the best for your chain or drivetrain to use PAS when shifting gears. That's why there's an (optional) shift sensor. Can't imagine that will end well using Turbo 5 to shift. :p

And I have the shift sensor installed. Now I just need to find the video on how to adjust my derailler!

Tried the barrel adjustment by the shifter and still no high gear.

It's not hard and you probably only needed to loosen a quarter turn or so.
It's the type of adjustment that you do in small increments.
If you're feeling froggy.. Watch the video and pause while you follow along.

The boy came over today and we flipped CC over and used the Handlebar Jack stands to adjust the brakes. (PITA) I almost lost the CC into the Porsche but was able to hang on. Removed the battery and with my sons help, was able to wrestle it to the ground. I am buying another bike stand stat! Anyway, after loosening and tightening the limit screws and fiddling with the barrel adjustments, I now have 11th gear. The bad news-I no longer have 1st gear, (which I have never used) It may be time for an LBS drop off. The CC feels like it weighs 150 lbs!

Same problem, other screw.
Turn the Low Limit Screw and ONLY the Low Limit Screw 1/4 turn counter clockwise. It's a good idea to view the derailleur from the rear as you do this as you will see it move outward and this gives you an idea of what you are actually adjusting.
If just making this adjustment you might be able to lean the back tire off the ground onto the kick stand and spin the crank instead of putting it the stand or flipping it over.

Definitely get a good stand, it is hard to do the adjustment without a stand. As has been suggested you have to loosen (turn counterclockwise) the the low limit screw. It is a similar problem.
At this point you may do the adjustment from the beginning. You can follow this guide, it does a good job.

Congrats! Hey does anyone know the actual weight of these Frey CC bikes? I own one but dont have that type of measuring device. Thanks
I think I can recall a figure of 32 kg ,cant find it in any of the online info ,including the Frey published specs .

Multiply that figure by 2.2 to get it in to pounds weight .......about 70lbs by my calculations!!!!!!
