    Homage 2 month review

    It is most likely rear shock pressure. Check pressure matches your total rider wait. Your bike should have come with a shock pump/ pressure guage. Failing that you might need the rear shock replaced.

    Rohloff e-14 oil leak

    The internet will be amplifying the apparent occurrence of the issue - not good for those experiencing the problem however. Nearly 3 years on mine, no leaks. I do make sure it is never laid on its side however.

    Tubed vs Tubeless - what are you doing on your R&M?

    With larger battery capacities, rolling resistance is becoming less relevant in most use cases I would think? Thanks for the link, it was an interesting and informative read.

    Tubed vs Tubeless - what are you doing on your R&M?

    Ive been running with Tannus Tyre Armour for 3 yers - fingers crossed not a puncture to be seen in that time, same for my wife's Homage. P.S. @sammcneill When I was riding lots of single track I used to deflate my tires to around 18psi for max grip - the Tannus allows this kind of punishment...

    How is noise from the Bosch CX motor?

    At first I noticed it, but now I don’t. Not sure if that helps!

    Hypotheticals - would you replace your R&M with another R&M??

    Yes down in Dunedin. We have ridden the route most of the way on both sides of the harbour but with the 5km or so section near Port Chalmers still missing but due for completion about now. It was very scenic indeed, and the completed off road circular ride will be around 45km with a 15 minute...

    Hypotheticals - would you replace your R&M with another R&M??

    I went from a 2019 Delite Vario to a 2020 Superdelite Mountain to get extra range. It was prompted because (I believe) of a software bug in the smartphone system that kept throwing an error associated with modding the motor (503 I think it was), hence diasabling it at random times. Bosch...

    Custom paint jobs on R&M

    There you go, business opportunity doing a cosmetic+protection version.

    Custom paint jobs on R&M

    To be fair I love my factory “tundra grey matte” on my Superdelite Mountain. I do love the burnt orange/bronze on the old Superdelite too, which I could be tempted to convert to.

    The world's longest bicycle tunnel - or maybe the second longest anyway :)

    That is a great design solution. To be fair, some cyclists can be just as bad - mainly the weight weenie acoustic bike riders without bells riding as if it was an olympic time trial!

    Transporting Cargo eBikes (specially Dutch style)

    Looking forward to someone knowledgeable replying. We would have got a Load by now if I could have solved transporting it without a van/large trailer!

    New Riese and Müller Delite Review

    My SD Mountain has no kickstand either, so I have become an expert of placing my bike just so it balances perfectly against anything taller than 30cm 😊

    New Riese and Müller Delite Review

    Most likely. I was going off the metrics R&M use to define the distance travelled. 1.9m to 10.15m per pedal rotation for the Superdelite, compared to 1.57m to 8.4m on the SD Mountain.

    New Riese and Müller Delite Review

    Sam will have ridden some good hills given he rides the Port Hills in Christchurch. I've ridden up the World's steepest street, here in Dunedin NZ, with my Rohloff fitted Superdelite Mountain - better climbing gear ratio than the standard Superdelite. I didn't even get out of my saddle! 85kg...

    New Riese and Müller Delite Review

    Congrats, and great write up many will find useful. Thanks for taking the time to convert to metric too. If you end up like me, you will swop out for a superdelite eventually cos that comfy ride demands riding further than the single battery affords 😊

    Enviolo shifter tips or tricks?

    Just think what the bill would have been to have a European car serviced! I'm a glass half full guy :)

    Good luck with your purchase.

    Superdelite purchase

    It’s a strength thing. Grinding down and smoothing those welds may look better (I quite like the industrial look personally) but it seriously can degrade the strength of the weld. For a relatively heavy e-bike that I ride on MTB single track, function over form is important. The Superdelite...

    Superdelite purchase

    Sorry, I meant Fox is a substantial improvement over Suntour - hope that makes it clear. A closer look on the Nicolai site will show higher quality components than provided by R&M at a comparable price. Take the Hope cranks, something I changed to on my R&M aftermarket (to the Hope 155mm...

    Superdelite purchase

    I have ridden both R&M with standard Suntour and Fox, and Fox is more than an incremental improvement. I don't think I will ever get a non R&M bike without Fox - well I probably will with the Homage my next purchase which I will add Fox post factory. Off road they are night and day. On road...
