I have a long term loaner from WW with a chain. It skips a little also.so does my Trek Allant. I am not getting lucky with mid drives in general the Allant broke the chain 4 miles after getting it back from repairing the skipping 2 days ago so I don’t know if it was really fixed. My bad feelings for the very unreliable Stromer and the rear hub direct drive are starting to wane…no not really . I have deposit on Specializd with belt hopefully in Feb? And will test drive a Serial 1 since I found a local dealer

Still want my WattWagon to be my prime bike but it needs to be a little more reliable.

Having some issues , have a loaner , not sold on the Kindernay and the current power being compatible yet
I've seen you mention GPS tracking devices. I went with this: Boomerang GPS
Not sure about the newest model. I like the quiet mode. Sends me a text within 30ish seconds of bike being moved How it works and tracks bike via GPS.
My ABUS 6500A beeps and squeals enough if the bike is moved. The Boomerang quietly lets me know if I'm out of earshot, tracking the bikes location via GPS.
I never leave my machine unattended more than a minute away.
It was leaving bike in the same spot that sets me up. I watched the security cam vid of the pro that stole my G.F. Sugar II. Took him 10 seconds. Shorts, buffed legs and an "I Love New York" hat. Cable cutter out from under his shirt. ABUS best cable - snip, cable cutter back under shirt and walking off with my bike over his shoulder. Stupid me, leaving bike cabled to a steel ring in our 'secure' underground parking. He just waltzed in behind a car and hid behind a pillar.
They also had a special cage we could lock up in, but it was full - largely of rust junk bikes with flat tires. Unfortunately, the same pro broke in there with a couple friends and made off with several bikes.

Best of the New Year!
