    New Cube lightweight E Gravel bike

    The road and gravel versions look very similar to the new Cannondale Neo road and gravel bikes with the Bosch SX motor. I wonder if Cube and Cannondale are using the same frames.

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    Fully bled and the shifting is back to normal 🥳 TPEHAK, thanks for all your advice. It's much appreciated.

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    I've bled the system a couple of times and was able to get the upshifts (small lever) to go through the full 7 gear range, but now the downshift, which was shifting fine, only shifts 1 or 2 gears.:( I've downloaded the bleeding instructions from the Kindernay website and watched one of their...

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    I just hand cranked the shaft with pliers and it indented through all 7 gears, so it looks like (fingers crossed) that bleeding the line might solve the shifting problem.

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    When I had the wheel off I couldn't figure out how to shift the hub manually. The long lever, that shifts to an easier cog works fine, while the short lever, which shifts to a harder cog/gear, shifts normal in the easier gears, but as I shift upwards the throws become shorter and shorter, until...

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    I replaced the hub fluid and re-installed the back wheel. Unfortunately (but not a surprise) the hub will still not shift into 6th or 7th gear, so the next step is to bleed the upper gear line. The bleed nipple takes a 5mm wrench, which I don't have. I've ordered one from Amazon and it should...

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    Thanks TPEHAK....that's exactly what happened. It looks like there was enough fluid. I'll put in new fluid and see how it shifts. If I still have difficulty shifting into 6th and 7th gear I'll bleed the lines.

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    Last year I had a similar problem, with the hub not shifting into the highest gear. When I drained the hub I found that very little fluid came out. Once I refilled the hub the shifting returned to normal. Thinking that this may be the problem (again), I took the wheel/hub off and drained the...

    Damn, I keep on waffling on purchasing this bike. Part of me wants to buy the bike right away, while another part of me want to wait a year to see if any problems come to the surface. It's not like I really need another bike. I already have 3 ebikes and two regular bikes, including a very...

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    Scrambler & TPEHAK, thanks for the responses. I'll try the manual rotation first to see if its the gearhub and then the bleed if needed.

    Kindernay VII IGH and HYSEQ Onesie shifter

    I'm having a shifting problem with my Kindernay 7 speed hub. When I gear down to the easiest gear and then gear up I can only shift 5 times. The up shifter lever seems to have 'bottomed-out' and will not shift into the last two higher gears. I can't see any way to adjust the shifter and I'm...

    Is it possible to mount rear rack on 2024 Domane+ SLR7

    I have an Arkel saddle bag that I've used for the last five years. I just purchased another mounting rack for my other carbon framed e-gravel bike, so I use the bag on both bikes. https://arkel.ca/collections/rear-bags/products/seatpacker-seat-bag-hanger-kit-15l

    The one piece stem/bar with hidden cables looks nice, but I'd prefer a separate stem and handlebar setup, so I could swap out the stem or handlebar, or both. Also doing work on a bike with hidden cables is a bitch.

    Is it possible to mount rear rack on 2024 Domane+ SLR7

    I looked into this for my Giant Defy carbon road bike and from the information I came across it looks like mounting a rack to the fender mounts is not recommended. The only decent option I've come across is the Tailfin rack, which attached to a modified thru axle.

    Is the front wheel a 12x100 thru axle? I was thinking of ordering one of these sometime in the future, but looking at your bike has got me thinking about reaching for my credit card. :p I have an inexpensive Giant Escape that I'm in the (slow) process of turning it into a kinda Frankenstein...

    Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU)

    I really like this product, but one of the major drawbacks for me would be finding a shop that could do the repairs, if needed. A derailleur has drawbacks, but at least any bike shops can repair or replace derailleur parts. How many bike shops will be able to repair a Pinion gearbox? An...
