Guess we've all been busy - hopefully getting a lot of riding in. With one season under our belts, just wondering how the R&Ms are holding up for all.Yeah the battery stats are cool, you get an exact percentage and there are stats that tell you how many watt hours of power your using and how much you use on average. There are a lot more stats that I never looked at before. I do like too that the Nyon syncs to my phone instantly and my computer as soon as I am in Wifi range. There certainly could be a connector problem, but it only happens rarely. I rode 50 miles the other day without it happening, most times it doesnt. But like I said, I wouldnt even know it happened if I just didnt look down for a few seconds. I don't think there are any bugs to speak of with the Nyon besides the restarting, even phones do that. The light issue for me only started with the Nyon, but I think I just have to have the lights changed to switchable from the dealer to fix it. How do you like the M99 Pro by the way? I love it, it does get some condensation inside, but it doesnt affect the beam at all. I like having mine mounted between the crown race and head tube.
I do love everything about this bike now that I customized it to me. The only thing left to upgrade is the suspension then I am done I swear. I convinced myself to spend all this money on this bike just to spend another $3,000+ on accessories and upgrades, kind of snowballed...
After a slow start, I was able to get into a consistent commuting routine by June and finished the season with 3,000+ miles on my Delite Rohloff. So far, so good. Still loving this bike. I've pretty much got the accessories maxed out: Garmin Edge 1000 mounted, swapped out the bell for a Spurcycle, added an AirZound horn, mounted a Topeak MiniMorph pump, added an older style Dinotte 400R tail light, and switched to Schwalbe SuperMoto tires. I rode into December, but then the weather just got too extreme here in NY for my tastes. Fortunately, the R&M is not my sole means of transportation; otherwise, I'd be swapping out the SuperMoto's for some studded tires - really, the Delite would probably handle the ice & snow fine, but I'm getting too damn old for that!
Has anyone gone for the COBI setup yet? It looks like a viable alternative to the Nyon, however, even though my phone has a waterproof case and has withstood multiple accidental drops, etc., I'm not so crazy about subjecting it to the abuse it will inevitably take on the handlebars or depending on it to always control the motor functions without hiccups. To my thinking, a dedicated piece of hardware always trumps using another device programmed for a secondary purpose. That being said, COBI did do the smart thing by designing the mount to slide over the stock Intuvia one, as well as retaining the remote controller. I guess this would allow you to swap out/exchange the phone and the Intuvia (or Nyon) at will So, no doubt I'll talk myself into going for one . . . especially since it appears that Bosch has no intention of making the Nyon available here in the States.
