    Turbo Vado 5.0 IGH - The Nightmare Continues

    This is incredibly appalling to read. If they don't want to do the right thing, might as well just file in small claims court. This LBS sounds dishonest.

    in case anyone was waiting for e-bike sensor integration on k2 hammerhead …

    I’ve been using this and after a couple of weeks, it has hiccups. Off the top of my head, it looks like the estimated battery range in terms of miles just doesn’t work.

    in case anyone was waiting for e-bike sensor integration on k2 hammerhead …

    Finally. I’ve had my Karoo 2 for at least over a year. Really love it. I never bought the Specialized computer for my Turbo Vado SL. The sales guy said I was making a big mistake. Nope. He had just never heard of Karoo 2.

    Specialized Turbo Vado SL: An Incredible E-Bike (User Club)

    I checked my Mission Control app. I don’t normally check it. 2200 miles on my bike. As mentioned, two chain replacements and one set of brakes replaced. I haven’t changed the tires but they seem ok? Any recommendations on tires for this bike? I just ride on paved roads that are in pretty good...

    Here’s hoping the rest of the bike gets lighter weight to offset it :)

    Specialized Turbo Vado SL: An Incredible E-Bike (User Club)

    Really been enjoying my Turbo Vado SL 4.0 for about a year and a half now. I just got done with its first major maintenance, replacing the brakes. It’s also now on its second chain replacement. Still on original tires. They seem fine. I did catch one flat but roadside patched it and it’s been...

    Are we talking about the Park Tool chain cleaner? We can’t use it on the Vado SL? Why not? I’ve been using it. Pushing the pedals forward is not resulting in a proper cleaning? Uh oh. My bad!

    Coup d'état Range Extender deal!

    I had this issue when I bought mine earlier in the thread. I found another code that they didn’t mark with this restriction and succeeded. Keep trying different codes you may come across.

    220 and it just about makes it. No way 160mm would work imo.

    New Vados, Comos, and TERA!

    I just bought a Turbo Vado SL recently. No SL updates so this one isn’t for me. Big fan of SL, as I prefer riding without juice more often than not. I’ll upgrade my SL when it has an internal gear hub and belt drive. Otherwise, I’m very happy. I have a Garmin Varia radar for the car detection...
