My wife just got a specialized Vado sl 5.0 step through size small. We want to attach a battery extender to the cage under the seat tube, but it won’t fit with the current cage. Anyone have a solution for this?
Good idea. The cage should be left loading because the RE cable is inserted into the plug on the non-drive side of Vado SL.
P.S. If Specialized provided water-bottle cage mount on the bottom tube, it means a standard water-bottle (or, Range Extender) should fit. The trick is using left side loading cage. It works with at least two step-through e-bikes I own. It was impossible to insert the bottle from the top on any of them, and it is easy from the side.
We have a right loading cage there. I have only tried the cage with larger water bottles. I was able to force a smaller one in there Kk. Since Range extenders are not available, I will have to wait and see if it fits. Thanks
