    Trek Launches New High Performance Electric Cross Country Ebikes E-Caliber

    Sold on the idea of lightweight and minimal assist I recently took delivery of the 9.6. I've put maybe 10 miles on so far. Very different from my DB Current a gravel drop bar, with the Bosch Performance Speed gen4 w/Kiox I acquired about 2 months ago. I gather the Fazua iPhone app doesn't yet...

    I know right - I lined it up using the hatch marks on the handlebar which are totally wrong once you go from 6 degree rise to 30. Didn't notice the brake line being stressed but great point. :-)

    Received my RedShift ShockStop arrived in 1 day - and even though I ordered it through the redshift website Amazon delivered it. The first impression of my evening 4-mile ride is it is great. Really changes the feel of the bike - it now pretty smooth riding on cobblestone streets and gravel...

    Very interesting. Went with the 100+30 be nice to try the variety. On my ride last night, I moved the stem down one spacer and was surprised to see how that impacts the saddle then. :-) So this is a weird thing - anyone know how to make your ears not ache from the wind? Temps right now...

    I'm planning to order the Redshift - seems like an awesome option and will try their suspension seat post too. I measured - and the current stem angle is +6 80mm. Any thoughts about going to 100mm +30? Looks like we have a couple of shims you can reposition too that would drop it down. I'm...

    Awesome! That seems like a great option! Thanks! Learning lots of new things. Curious - is this similar to the Specialized Future Shock. I can tell it the Future Shock simply damps the handlebar of if it actually damps the front fork.

    Cool to see some upgrades - are there any carbon fork, small travel shock suggestions for the Current?

    Excellent idea. I did check as in fact I believe this started after my daughter accidentally knocked the bike over. as far as I can tell its pretty straight, but not perfectly vertical. All the shops around here have weeks-long waits for tune-up thinking about using a mobile repair outfit.

    I've now owned by DiamondBack Current for a month. My first impression: Loved it. Amazed at how easy it is to pedal with or without the motor. But now 1 month into it I'm not so sure I picked the right bike for how I've ended up using it. According to the Bosch app - which is awesome - I've...

    I pulled out the battery on my current. It’s the Bosch 500. The pdf seems to have other inaccuracies as well. It does baffle me why it’s not on the DB website yet.

    IMO - my motor noise isn't as loud as in the video but I don't have much to compare it to. I would say that passing anyone they would know it is an e-bike as its nowhere near silent. Seemed the same on the Treks.

    Looking for a new hobby I started wondering about biking as I see people riding on Sunday mornings around the area - so after using this site, browsing online and visiting all the local shops (wow there are lot near Chicago) I bought my 1st "road" bike which is also my first electric bike - the...
