    2021–2022 Riese & Müller Homage

    Heh, that's the issue I had with the fidlock on the Nevo. I had to file down the heads on some M6 screws (and the slot they go through) to fit the larger screws to the mounting plate.

    2021–2022 Riese & Müller Homage

    I'm not terribly clever mechanically, so consider the source :) The rack mount bolts sit deep in a recess. The mushroom needs to be about a half-inch or so away from bolt head to clear the recess. A stand-off might bridge the gap, though. I just put fidlock water bottles on my wife's Nevo (had...

    Is that the Fabric bottle mount? Mine (single battery) came with the rack but nothing for the bottles.

    2021–2022 Riese & Müller Homage

    I'm currently using a MowTow. The bike basically hangs from the rim of the wheels and the lower wheels are velcroed to a sliding supprt that acts a bit like a chock — it just stops the bike from swinging. The bottom wheel attachment carries no load. Photo linked below. A Nevo fit perfectly when...

    2021–2022 Riese & Müller Homage

    Thanks for confirming the panniers and also the water bottle situation. Having seen the bottles on the headtube on past models I was confused not to have them on my bike. Being fond of magnets, I'll look into those :)

    Nice rides. Congrats and happy trails! I have a white Homage and my wife is waiting for her (red) Nevo to get off a boat. Do those Basil panniers use the MIK attachment or do they velcro on?

    Rohloff E-14

    Agree 1,000 percent on that shifter button arrangement. It boggles the mind.

    R&M Front Carrier Bag, First pictures !!

    Neither did my new Homage. I was planning to ask my LBS about it (eventually).

    R&M Front Carrier Bag, First pictures !!

    I was planning on getting one but not really sure. I really only need a small bag for incidentals (sunglasses, gloves, etc.) that will not interfere with the light (on my Homage it is up on the bars, not below on the rack).

    2021–2022 Riese & Müller Homage

    Idle musing, looking at those alternative mounting bosses for the Bordo, I wonder if someone could fabricate a spare battery carrier to mount at that location rather than lugging one in a pannier.

    OBSERVATIONS ON 155mm CRANKS

    Thank you for this. I really appreciate folks who are willing to tinker and even more helpfully, report on their results.

    Sluggish GSD S00?

    I found as the miles accumulated the motor and shifter both felt easier. When "shifting" I easily established a habit of simply pausing the pedals momentarily and was completely satisfied with that. I found it nearly impossible to shift under certain loads if I didn't. As it happened it felt...

    Over50's Tern GSD Chronicles - Gen 1 and Gen 2 R14

    Thanks. You've motivated me to call *my* LBS to see about getting the upgrade. Appreciate the link.

    Over50's Tern GSD Chronicles - Gen 1 and Gen 2 R14

    Do you mind if I ask how much the Atlas upgrade was?

    Superdelite Bike Carrier (Thule Towbar?)

    Thanks for the details. I have the Thule EasyFold and use it on my Jeep with a Tern GSD. It has a lot to recommend it. On the down side I only have the shorter ramp and it's not particularly helpful as I'm relatively short and the Jeep hitch receiver is rather high. Fortunately the frame of the...

    Superdelite Bike Carrier (Thule Towbar?)

    That MoTow looks very clever. I love the lift. Looks to be $984 with the lift. You mentioned it's not perfect — what's less than ideal in your experience so far?

    Riese Müller annual ebikes family update

    Excellent news. I thought I heard Chris mention in the video that upgrades would be easier. Nyon wasn't an option when I ordered my Nevo3 in early June but since my build week has been pushed *again* — now to October — I guess I have time to upgrade my configuration to include the now-available...

    New 2021Homage and Nevo 3 on order

    Congrats on the upcoming bikes. I ordered a Nevo3 before the Nyon was an option; my build week theoretically starts tomorrow. If it gets delayed again I will likely ask to change the order to incorporate the Nyon. I'm sure I will be able to scrape by with the Kiox otherwise. I have watched...

    Pannier or backpack for city travelling?

    I love that high-vis fabric. I have it on an Ortlieb front bag on my Tern. Low-key in daylight and as-advertised at night :)

    Pannier or backpack for city travelling?

    Given the weight of these bikes I've never noticed any impact. My current ride is a Tern GSD and I load that with a weeks worth of groceries on one side.
