Any chance you could take a pic of your new750c setup?Guys, just a quick update on my RX Pro at about 175 miles now.
I swapped the original Kenda 26x4 knobby tires for Origin 8 street tires. Nice tires, some fine tuning of psi dialed out most of the self steering issues. Nice tires overall though. They have a massive look, and they feel heavy, much like the standard knobbies.
Not entirely happy with the Origins, this morning I swapped those tires for some 26x3.00 Kenda Flame street tires. I like these way better. They look great on the stock 4" rims, they ride as good as the Origins on gravel, and there's much less rolling resistance. All else being equal, I can ride in the next tallest gear now - so "noticeable difference" is kind of an understatement. Noteworthy, is though they are very easy to get on the rim when mounting, extreme care must be taken so you don't blow them right off while inflating. Bead must be watched very carefully while bringing the pressure up in maybe 5-10psi steps.
You've likely figured out I'm a "tuner/tinkerer" at heart by now. That in mind, I swapped the stock Bafang DPC18 display (which works fine) for a Bafang 750C display. It was a plug and play swap and I found a deal on a new one. I like the horizontal setup better, with the side by side speed and watt meters. It reminds me of my old muscle and sport cars with the side by side speedo and tach. The watt meter itself is the other attraction. It offers MUCH better resolution for those wanting/needing to know how many watts the motor is pulling at any given time. The DPC18 is very difficult/impossible to tell if it's pulling 100w or 250w for instance. The 750C can tell you within just a few watts. It does jump around a bit, so if something like that would make you crazy, stay away. A good idea of exactly what it's pulling is important to me as I base what gear I'm in and what PAS level to use based on watt usage - not to mention input for ideas on controller programming. This will let me be more precise there for sure.
Hope others are enjoying their new ride as much as I'm enjoying this one!
Stay healthy! -Al
