    How to have LBS Enable Tour+ Mode on 2021 Performance Line CX Drive Unit?

    Thank you for the additional information about how the Tour+ mode is being implemented. I now wonder whether my R&M Homage having special programming to allow a lower belt-drive gearing than the stock setup is part of the reason the option did not show up (according to my LBS tech)? Has...

    How to have LBS Enable Tour+ Mode on 2021 Performance Line CX Drive Unit?

    But Bosch does allow the eMTB mode on IGH bikes. And as I understand it, the eMTB mode has higher assist levels than the Tour+, and a much more complicated algorithm with the "Uphill Flow", and "Extended Boost" functionality of the eMTB mode. My understanding of the Tour+ mode is that it is a...

    How to have LBS Enable Tour+ Mode on 2021 Performance Line CX Drive Unit?

    If the higher assist level eMTB mode works fine on my belt-driven Rohloff bike, why would the lower assist level Tour+ not work just as well? That seems counterintuitive.

    How to have LBS Enable Tour+ Mode on 2021 Performance Line CX Drive Unit?

    I cannot find anything on the Bosch website which is currently showing a restriction to chain drive models. https://www.bosch-ebike.com/us/news/tour

    How to have LBS Enable Tour+ Mode on 2021 Performance Line CX Drive Unit?

    I recently had my bicycle at my local shop getting a variety of thing done, and I had asked them to enable the new Tour+ Mode while they were tweaking some other settings (crank length, and a remote software download from the manufacturer). The service tech said that he could not figure out...

    Project Update: R&M did approve the change to the belt drive gear ratio on my Class-1 (20mph) Homage GT Rohloff bike. It took a few tries for my LBS to properly coordinate with the R&M tech team to get the bike hooked up to the R&M computers through the internet. Once the remote connection...

    Changing crank length and primary gear reduction on Rohloff/Gates equipped 2021 Homage GT with Class-1 CX Gen-4 motor.

    Project update: After a couple of missed calls, my LBS finally managed to get my bike hooked up to the R&M computer through the interwebs and downloaded the software updates into my bike which is required for the Bosch drive system to recognize the new primary belt drive ratio. The charge to...

    Yes, the CX motor assistance is limited to 20mph. But No, the Performance Line Speed motor does not have lower torque output. The MAIN difference between the two motors is the availability of adaptive power modes in the CX motor versus flat rate support percentages in all modes on the Speed...

    1) Yes, the dual-battery model can be run with just a single battery installed. The single battery can be mounted in either side of the frame. 2) The rubber covers are mounted to the battery case, and have no way to be attached to the frame if removed from the case. R&M does sell...

    Changing crank length and primary gear reduction on Rohloff/Gates equipped 2021 Homage GT with Class-1 CX Gen-4 motor.

    Back in the days of externally routed metal cables to actuate the brakes, it was quite easy for me to flip the actuation on my own. And per Stefan Mikes, the UK and Australian bikes are the only ones which come from the factory with the brakes set up the "Correct" way round to match motorcycles...

    Changing crank length and primary gear reduction on Rohloff/Gates equipped 2021 Homage GT with Class-1 CX Gen-4 motor.

    And yes, as show in the spreadsheet clips in my first posting, the Rohloff equipped Load models come stock with 55/19 (2.89) versus the 60/19 (3.16) gearing on the Homage and DeLite models equipped with a Rohloff hub. So your Load's stock gearing is already 8.3% lower than my stock gearing (or...

    Changing crank length and primary gear reduction on Rohloff/Gates equipped 2021 Homage GT with Class-1 CX Gen-4 motor.

    My understanding was that EU bicycles come with the front brake being actuated by the right hand lever, which matches the motorcycle standard. Am I mistaken?

    Changing crank length and primary gear reduction on Rohloff/Gates equipped 2021 Homage GT with Class-1 CX Gen-4 motor.

    Not yet. With the holiday hours for both R&M and my shop, they could not coordinate a date till January 6th. Given the fact that there is currently snow falling in Wisconsin with predicted high temps only reaching around 10-F this weekend, I can wait. While they have the bike, they are...

    Crank length and seat height/drop is much more related to your inseam versus overall height. I am just over 5'-10" (1.78m), but seem to have a shorter than normal inseam for my height of only 28" (711mm). My preference is for either 160mm or even the set of 155mm cranks I have tried with my...

    Just heard from R&M today, and they are going to authorize the change to the belt drive sprocket ratio on my Rohloff/Gates/CX equipped 2021 Homage. Now just waiting for the LBS to coordinate with them so that R&M can remote into my bike to download the required software changes. I am...

    Latest News: Heard today that R&M is authorizing the change to the primary gearing change. Currently working with my LBS to schedule a time for R&M to connect to my bike remotely to download the changes needed. I am STOKED!!! 🚴‍♂️

    The number should actually be printed on the back of the belt, but could have been worn down from rubbing on the tensioner pulley to where it is hard to read. If you cannot read the printing on the back of the belt, you could spend the time to count the teeth by placing a mark (white...

    Evidently more humor is not always better either... I was addressing Apparatschik's specific application, and attempting to make a joke at the same time. Next time I will be more clear when trying to be funny... :rolleyes: 😆 Also, if you had been following closely, you would have seen that...
