    Scott e-RIDE Addict 30 and the world of easier hills

    Today the shifter worked flawlessly again. It is a pretty cool system. Just hope I don't see such problems again. Had a fantastic trip today. 86 kilometres round trip from south of the airport to Rungsted harbour and back. If you ever happen in Copenhagen, try renting a bike a drive along the...

    Scott e-RIDE Addict 30 and the world of easier hills

    The SRAM AXS etap made some trouble today. Suddenly I could only change into lower gears but not into higher gears again. The derailleurs were reacting when testing them and I also just had charged them but pressng the levers at the bar handle did not work anymore . Pretty annoying as I was...

    Scott e-RIDE Addict 30 and the world of easier hills

    Just wanted to share a picture of my new bell. The compact version is smaller and it sounds slightly deeper than the Spurcycle Original. Now I can ride more safely when crossing the city centre. As with the Original it is really loud, despite it's small size.

    Scott e-RIDE Addict 30 and the world of easier hills

    Thanks for your kind replies. Yes, bike lanes in Copenhagen are a real treat. Having said that, you still need to watch a bit ahead when riding a racing bike with narrow wheels. Sometimes there may be broken glass on the lane, potholes or simply bumps because workers installed some pipe across...

    Speed vs battery life

    Just to add another angle of thought.... on a very light e-bike, like a racing bike, the faster you ride, the less you need the battery. This is because on a light racing bike you naturally exceed the 25 km/h the engine supports you (in Europe) most of the times anyway, hence battery only kicks...

    Scott e-RIDE Addict 30 and the world of easier hills

    Thanks, I had deleted my post just after I realised with another measurement that 31.8 mm bells should be able to fit close to the center of the stem. I also use my voice usually but when crossing Copenhagen downtown this is not a safe method. We have excellent cycle lanes everywhere but often...

    Mahle X20

    same here, I also use a Garmin Edge to get this data. Upright position is of course relative. After all, this is a racing bike. Wouldn't really call it upright seating but I read somewhere that it's more moderate than some other racing bikes.

    Mahle X20

    On a flat surface with no wind I usually cycle on my Scott eRide 20 between 28-32 km/h, so the engine (on lowest = green mode) only kicks in for accelerating after a full stop. Otherwise it is neutral. This is why the battery lasts that long. Did a 60 km run on Saturday along the Baltic Sea...

    anyone know actual weight difference between a Creo Carbon Comp and a similar aluminum model?

    I still wonder why Specialized is a bit secretive about the weight on their models. They list a lot of detailed technical information on each of their models on the website for you to compare but the weight is not part of their specs.

    Specialized Vado Turbo SL 5.0 EQ - please help confirm my choice!

    Another thing to consider is the difference in weight. If you have to lift your bike as part of your commuting / storing the bike, the "regular" Vados are very heavy, whereas the Vado SL is more in the range of an average' bikes weight

    Creo SL vs Vado SL

    A lighter frame may get you more speed = more miles but usually comes at the cost of less sturdiness. I own a Vado SL 4.0 EQ myself and use it for everyday commuting, groceries shopping and for trips when the weather is rough / roads dirty. Earlier this year I wanted to get a bike just for...

    Specialized Vado Turbo SL 5.0 EQ - please help confirm my choice!

    The Vado SL is a bike for everyday use- including commuting. Creo is more geared towards work outs. I bought a Vado SL 4.0 EQ 3-4 years ago and used it in the beginning for both commuting and workouts. Great bike but a year later I wanted to have a light bike just for the work outs. Looked at...

    The app is useful for checking e.g on the SW solution you have on the bike. But for riding the bike you don’t need it. I use my Garmin device instead for getting all the data displayed but even that is optional

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

    I have meanwhile purchased 3 different types of bags for my Vado SL Rack Time system: Clickfix Rackpack Light - for small luggage during day trips with my bike Clickfix Shopper Alingo GT - for shopping groceries Clickfix Rackpack XL - for office commuting. It is broader than the Rackpack Light...

    Vado SL vs R&M UBN 5

    In any case the UBN Five seems to be at least 1-2 KG heavier than the Vado SL. as Stefan said, the Vado SL has a proven engine and it is nice to have a bike where you do not have to reach out to a different vendor when there are questions / updates about/ for your engine. I have a Vado SL 4.0 EQ...

    Your experiences with the new Mahle MySmartBike app (replacement for Ebikemotion)

    Gratulations to your Scott Addict eRide. So you also have the 20 then? Error 32 comes up every time I use the Mahle app. Actually I stopped using it, it just displays errors and things like motor maps not implemented yet. It frustrates more than it helps (I have the latest version and latest...

    Your experiences with the new Mahle MySmartBike app (replacement for Ebikemotion)

    Thanks , Yes that’s my understanding too . The acid test for the communication between the HMI and the battery I guess is if the battery indicator on the HMI correctly shows remaining battery life . Guess I need to use the battery though more often than I did now to see really the battery being...

    Your experiences with the new Mahle MySmartBike app (replacement for Ebikemotion)

    Thanks a lot. It was a perfect day. nice to ride at the sea side, sun was shining, wind in the back and it was pretty warm for the season. I did not use much the engine on the trip but neverthess plugged it in afterwards. It charged for probably an hour in the usual way, i.e. the charger...
