    Bull grinder Evo vs Yamaha Wabash RT,

    Chainring on the Bulls looks pretty small. Maybe OK for offroad but your not going to like that for commuting . No way your doing 20mph on it, yet the 28 they list.

    Wabash RT or Civante for touring?

    Nice choice. Congrats. Buddy I ride with has the Turbo Creo carbon. That's nice too. Creo 2 should be out soon.

    Wabash RT or Civante for touring?

    Wabash RT Youtube review: At 3 minute marker you can hear the headset rattle. Same noise as my Civante made before I switched the fork.

    Wabash RT or Civante for touring?

    No walk assist on Civane. The control is pretty basic.

    Wabash RT or Civante for touring?

    I have Civante. You will need to put a carbon fork on it to get rid of the headset rattle. Then you also gain some attaching points on the fork like Wabash RT already has. Keep in mind neither one has a carbon fork. Since Wabash RT has bigger 45mm tires, maybe it wont rattle. Maybe? Keep in...

    Civante Fork, recall?/?

    Wow, I'm surprised you were able to get a email or contact info for a person at Yamaha. I tried several times calling Yamaha customer relations and hit roadblock each time. They said there was nobody I could contact or be transferred to. MUST to go thru local dealer -- which that guy quit...

    Carbon fork swap, Civante - Wabash - Urban Rush

    I swapped out my Civante fork to a carbon fork. Info on what you need. Stock fork is 11/8 taper to 11/4 size which is not common size head tube. I wanted a fork with replaceable crown race. I found one on ebay that is 11/8 straight. Sure there are also pricy ones from Whiskey or Ritchey ect. 1)...

    Yamaha warranty. Something to consider. "Frame made wrong"

    Without any help from Yamaha customer support to figure this out -- I fixed the creaking / snapping noise by replacing the fork with aftermarket one. If anyone else experiences similar noise from the headset, I will make a seperate post about swapping the fork. The stock fork uses non...

    YDX Moro Pro Problem after Problem

    Yamaha bicycle dealers can come and go. The sell some bad bikes in your area and the dealer gives up. Then your 3 yr warranty basically disappears. Yamaha plans it that way. They need to unload those bad bikes somewhere.

    YDX Moro Pro Problem after Problem

    Great comment. I hope they get yours fixed. Unfortunately your clock is ticking and it takes Yamaha 2 months to get parts.

    Yamaha warranty. Something to consider. "Frame made wrong"

    Yamaha replaced the bike with a different bike which makes the same exact headset noise... It was only quiet for first 20 miles, then the noise started showing up again... It gets worse as the miles go up.... Civante = Defective product!

    Yamaha Civante part out value????

    Well, they need to buy it at the right price so they have a profit. So the shipping both to get the bike to their warehouse and final customer comes out of the offer price. But on the other hand, seems like easy way to get rid of a bike if you dont want the hassle or a 1099 from ebay.

    Yamaha Civante part out value????

    Their offer was pretty close to my guess above. Less than half of a new one. I think its worth more in parts than that.

    Yamaha warranty. Something to consider. "Frame made wrong"

    Used phone for this short video of the noise. The microphone on phone picked up the noise better than my old Gopro. Take a listen.

    Yamaha warranty. Something to consider. "Frame made wrong"

    Jaberwocky, thanks for the links to the forks. Civante has the crown race taper machined directly into it. Those looked like the crown race is missing and instead would use a pressed on crown race that came with the headset ---IDK ???? The Richey one looked like it had a taper there but not...

    Yamaha warranty. Something to consider. "Frame made wrong"

    FYI: Headset bearing Civante: Upper bearing VP-P08F (41.8x8x45) Lower bearing VP-P22 (46.9x7x45) No they didnt use common 1.125 to 1.50 tapered steerer. They used 1.125 to 1.25 --- so it is hard to find local fork to fit. Both the bearings and the fork are hard to find. If anyone has suggestion...
