    New Carbon Fiber Bike from Ride1up

    Yeah, my Roadster v2 seemed to be in the 33 lb range, but I never believed the Gravel could be the same with disc brakes. This person did weigh the CF Racer road version at the start of the video:

    Searching for the perfect ebike

    For me, I was fine with checking each of the specific dimensions of the online bikes I was looking at to verify approximate fit, and then using a tape measure to adjust settings to same as existing bikes after getting the new bikes. In my case, the Ride1UP bikes had great pricing, good...

    New Carbon Fiber Bike from Ride1up

    Based on my Roadster (or Gravelster), which uses the same external battery, expect there should be no problem. Uses both at the same time, and if one has more voltage, it’ll draw down from that one. (At least I think that’s how it works, but it worked fine for me).

    New Carbon Fiber Bike from Ride1up

    Yes, frame fit is so important. Though I wouldn’t necessarily just go by the frame size number, but would check the specific dimensions and compare with a current bike that fits.

    Frame breakage Vado turbo

    Does the weight of the bike matter, to risk for breaking? Looks like the Vado is 60 lbs, and the CF Racer is 28 lbs (and also have a lower rider weight limit).

    Rear wheel spokes

    In that case, you need to call around shops to find ones that’ll make spokes for you. Sometimes the set up for the particular size you need may involve an initial cost.

    Roadster/Gravelster Aftermarket Improved LCD Display!!

    If I recall correctly, from the above screenshots in an earlier post, it’s the Max Speed Road and Max Speed Off Road. In my “final” setup though , I changed the Mode Labels to “Eco/Sport” modes instead of “Road/OffRoad” labels and set the max assist speed for those modes to 25 kph and 45 kph...

    Were You Moving Away From E-Bikes, What Traditional Bicycle Would You Buy?

    This. Lots of riding with my single speed e-bike improved my fitness enough that I can ride and really enjoy a traditional single speed. I just have more options and capabilities now, depending on what I feel like doing. Now I just need a bigger garage for all the bikes ;)

    Were You Moving Away From E-Bikes, What Traditional Bicycle Would You Buy?

    Great to know that about titanium, thanks! The flexing under stress would be a deal-breaker for me, for those times where I’d be high speed cornering on uneven surfaces. The track bike geometry is already agressive, so wouldn’t want it to be any less stable. Once again, that’ll allow me to focus...

    Were You Moving Away From E-Bikes, What Traditional Bicycle Would You Buy?

    As always, the number of bikes you need (want) is N+1, but I’ve found you can always do more with the bikes you have already… - Motor off more often, as mentioned - Improving your pedaling technique and smoothness, including high cadence spinning - Improving climbing technique, including out of...

    Poll - Did you upgrade from Cadence Sensing to Torque Sensing?

    Cadence sensing has worked great for me, and I have no need to change. Easy enough to adjust PAS levels, though I did do an aftetmarket upgrade (EggRider) that allowed to customize power at each PAS level, and modify max speed at which assist drops off.

    Were You Moving Away From E-Bikes, What Traditional Bicycle Would You Buy?

    Past 6 years or so: 1) IGH 3 speed 50 lb e-bike : fine for 10-20 mile rides, mainly used by spouse 2) Geared 50 lb 28 mph e-bike: enjoyed for 12k+ miles, and did enjoy it for higher speed riding. Got some exercise, but heavy bikes still feel cumbersome 3) Single Speed Carbon Belt Drive 33 lb...

    Roadster/Gravelster Aftermarket Improved LCD Display!!

    Make sure it’s Lishui variant version, so it is the right connector! AND, the EggRider is tied to an email address for registration and the app? Might need to double check that you can use it without issue. Have all the settings up above in previous posts :)

    Roadster/Gravelster Aftermarket Improved LCD Display!!

    I do use the external battery, and I had some discussion with Ride1Up and EggRider support. I have only had an error message a few times over the past 2000+ miles with the EggRider display. If I remember, it really only happened when under heavy load during continuous climbing and high assist...

    Roadster V2 Gravel Edition

    Have fun! Got my non-gravel Roadster up to 46mph, and still pretty stable. Going down mountains and hairpins at high speed was a bit hairy, but that is likely true for most any bike.
