Hi, just picked up a 2015 Gepida Ruga 27.5 on the weekend.

I'd ridden a mate's Gepida Asgard and was sold on the smooth pedal assist and the Bosch product.

Keen to clock up some kms on the Ruga between riding my conventional bikes.

Just looked up an image and specs on your Gepida--Nice Wheels @Testing386! You've got the Bosch Performance motor, the CX with higher 500watt output and a decent battery. Looking forward to your own images of the bike and hearing more about where you ride.

Hi Ann,

Unfortunately specs vary country to country. The Australian 2015 is closer to the European 2016 model - Active Line motor, 400 battery, heavier lower spec components.

I have a lot of MTB kit and will be looking at doing some mods:
- lighter forks;
- 26" wheelset running large volume tyres more suited to my use (hard pack dirt roads and bitumen);
- 203mm Ice Tech rotors - tried my friend's Asgard with 203 rotors and it was a massive improvement. He now reports (after 6000km commuting) longer life for the discs and pads compared to original.
- Brooks Cambium saddle (already fitted) - long time Brooks user;
- MKS Ezy pedals (already fitted) - saves bumps and bruises when transporting the bike.

Picture of bike as picked up.
