I just thought of something. Do you have the HS (high speed) version of the Tinker? If so, this does not offer the eMTB mode because it uses the performance speed version Bosch motor. Only the CX version (limited to 20 mph here in the states) offers the eMTB mode.Thank you! Not as simple as I had thought, with respect to the dongle requirement as none of the other bikes he has sold are CX models. I will pursue further...
I have the CX version (with N380 belt drive). Thanks!
One of the reason I purchased this version was because of the relatively high torque low velocity... and the belt drive. For city riding, I find that 20MPH is quite fast enough.
Hi Kenny, Whatever you do please ride the bike before you buy. The number one consideration is geometry. If the bike does not feel good physically, there is a likelihood that you will not ride a lot. I know a lot of folks on this forum buy bikes sight unseen. Hate for you to buy a bike only to discover that it isn't comfortable.Has anyone had the chance to ride one of the new Tinkers by Rises and Muller? Looks like a nice bike and I was wondering if anyone could chime in.
Kenny - We have one in the shop that I have ridden several times. My initial thoughts are: Compact bike made to fit a variety of riders. It rides like a full size bike due to the stiff frame and wider tires and it's a lot of fun and very easy to handle making it great for urban environments.
Let me know if I can answer any questions.
Problem fixed! eMTB installed. Reason for the difficulty is unknown. Bottom line is that I like it!I’ve seen this happen with a bad connection either with the internet or with the cable running to the display. There are two options, to load the software directly from the web or to download it then add it. I imagine they tried both options, but if not these would be some things I would look at.
Joe,Chris, I really like the comfort and versatility of the Tinker. I have a few questions about configuring the Tinker:
1) Ideally i'd like more seatpost suspension combined with an original Tinker seatpost: Can R&M fit it with a Cane Creek Thudbuster LT instead of an ST, or even a Body Float? I know they don't show those options online, but maybe you have inside info. I'd prefer not to use shims, and to get the adjustment tick marks and the full range of height adjustments of the original unsuspended seatpost.
2) Is R&M's CCT ST seatpost just as long as their unsuspended seatpost? I'm 6'6" and the Tinker felt comfortable only at the highest unsuspended seatpost setting. My wife is much shorter, so I'm also wondering if the ST adds to the minimum seat height (maybe not since I think the unsuspended seatpost doesn't go all the way down either)?
3) Are there any pneumatic suspension fork options (from R&M or Propel)? Seems like this should be an option for a ~$5k ebike.
