So in the case of the puncture that did not seal, was the bike not rideable or perhaps you were just too far to limp home? I wanted to check the marketing claim that I highlighted below about the run-flat feature. You had some bad luck with those punctures. It hasn't happened to me yet and my main threat so far has been broken glass which seems to be abundant in our bike lanes and on my commute....The second one just this week was an inch long piece of metal and unfortunately the slime would not seal the hole. I called a friend for a ride and the shop (who encouraged me to use Tannus) with no expectation from me changed it for free....

Delay was due to various factors. First, I sent the LBS down the wrong path by asking for the M99 Pro. They couldn't readily find a mount that worked for the Pro and ordered something from Germany. Also the wiring would require some rework which necessitated dropping the motor. While we were waiting for a mount to arrive, a trusted forum member advised me that the M99 Mini Pro 45 is the way to go because it is made to be more plug and play with Bosch, doesn't burn as hot, is smaller etc. LBS did not have access to this light but I was able to find a source for purchase. A mount shipped with the light but I don't know the name or whether the mount was a standard/stock item. I can find out if needed. The mount worked but the light isn't exactly centered - rather it sits just left of center which is perhaps better for city riding. The angle is easy to adjust. We are waiting for an appropriate clamp for the high-beam button pad (on order). Now it is affixed with double sided tape but seems secure. The stock clamp for the button pad is made to mate with a Magura brake clamp. LBS said the light swap wasn't too difficult but with the stem and internal routings did require some manipulation of the wires and it helped that the motor was already dropped as initial plan was to install the M99. They spliced in at the light and made a change in the Bosch software but that was about it. It was finished the day after I dropped off the light. I haven't tried the light at night (plan to do so today just in my backyard). I think it is 700 and 1400 lumens whereas the Bontrager was 500 lumens per the Trek website (and I assume that is the high beam). I will also use backup rechargeable lighting as I do on all my bikes. I have a camera mount on the handlebars on the Trek and it pairs with my Blackburn DayBlazer 800....Was the delay due to the connector, obtaining the light or the mount? Which mount was used and was it a "plug and play" install (wiring)?
With Bosch? Trek? Or both? No idea. I'd like to think my LBS would go to bat for me if needed - given I'm a good customer. But since commuting in the dark is a risky venture I'd opt for the brighter light and take the risk with the warranty....So, curios to know, is your warranty OK or null and void because of the retrofit?
I should have mentioned that @Chris Nolte was instrumental in the successful completion of the light swap. He provided me with very good advice and I was able to get the M-99 Mini Pro 45 from Propel with a mount that worked for the Allant.Love it!

I think it was a dealer update because the startup message said to take the bike to the dealer. I believe it was battery related but I didn't get a lot of info when I picked up the bike (different person). I'm going back today or tomorrow so I'll ask for some additional info.RE: "On startup, I received a message from Cobi that a software update was available for the bike. Is Bosch pushing software update messages via the Smartphone Hub?"
Do you know if it is a OTA update or must it be done by the dealer?
Do you have any indication as to what the update consisted of, did, improved or modified?
Glad to hear yours is running smoothly. Same here now, I have not made any changes from stock. I have the same mileage, 461 miles this morning. I took it in for a checkup at 300 miles, and they made some small adjustments. Freewheeling buzz is the same, this hub has more pawls and was designed that way, so I am getting used to it. Getting similar results on battery, and love the bike. Now the weather needs to get warmer so we can ride more!About 425 miles after 20 today during an afternoon work break. Bike is running smoothly and I do think it has become quieter. The most dominant noise is the freewheeling buzz from the hub. I feel the motor is becoming quieter. Love the suspension effect coming from the Tannus running around 42 psi. Or perhaps its the right combination of Baramind bar, Tannus, Kinekt and the carbon rims. Really nice ride on 90% of the pavement conditions I've experienced - and for that 90% I'm not missing a suspension fork at all. Now with mild temps I'm starting to see some really good range too. Extrapolating on Bosch estimates and I'd say 80 miles riding 85% Eco. I'm usually charging battery to estimated 80-85% and getting initial range estimate in the 60s. Returned today after 20 miles with estimated 40 remaining and just over 50% charge.
