    New Enviolo hub firmware / Vado 5.0IGH

    Good deal, it will be interesting to see if @Nonlinear can detect a difference You can update the firmware with the enviolo app. I have specialized app set to auto connect to bike. If you do too, make sure you kill Specialized app first so you can connect to enviolo app. I purchased the...

    New Enviolo hub firmware / Vado 5.0IGH

    Enviolo posted new firmware a couple weeks ago for Automatiq (version R48 -- I'm on R47). Did anyone here try the update? I have not because it's working great and I don't have time to tinker if something goes awry, but I probably will at some point. Regarding changes, I don't believe the...

    2022 turbo Vado 5 IGH battery does not secure …. Loose when pushing it in at the top.

    Hi all, Going back to Silvercat's question, has anyone tried adjusting or removing those three screws? I'd like to remove the screws & battery bar holder to access wiring....but I'm hesitant in case the position and fit of battery are fine tuned by those screws.

    Specialized Vado 5.0 IGH Cadence Survey

    I swapped to a 22T as well and think it's great, but I'm essentially on flats. I too saw different calibration behavior along the way, but for me, reducing the belt tension after calibrating at higher tension gave me an even wider gear range (this was with the 24T when I was messing around). I...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    Are you trying to figure out when / why you should calibrate? There is not a lot of interesting detail on calibration. Basically they tell us how to do it, and then a few bullets with a common theme of calibrating whenever something changes. Nuvinci (before they were enviolo)...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    I'm not sure if you have other sources, but I read that it should be calibrated twice a year, whenever wheel is removed, "repaired", etc. Documentation is open enough that I wouldn't exclude tension adjustments. Also, I didn't ask if belt tension changes when gear ratios change -- but I...

    First Impressions Vado 5 IGH Automatiq

    I wrote down some of my findings regarding enviolo here https://forums.electricbikereview.com/threads/enviolo-automatic-vibrations-cadence-22t-tension.53873/post-621811 Main findings were that reducing belt tension after first calibrating at higher tension increased the available gear ratio (is...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    Okay, so the 22T/2023 vs 24T/2023 alone doesn't explain the vibrations. While I did change a fair amount, I was able to get lower cadences/no vibrations with the 24T as well by reducing belt tension below spec (which seemed to increase available geat ratio)...so I guess too much tension could...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    I have a fairly lengthy update for pedal vibrations and some other ancillary improvements -- I swapped to a 22T rear sprocket and all pedal vibrations are gone(!). I wonder if this holds true for everyone. Swapping out was much easier than expected and without issue. Lack of vibrations could...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    Thanks, good to know. I'm starting to think it's the belt vibrating. I recently viewed the belt with a strobe light (just a dimmable led flashlight) while pedaling on a stand and saw standing waves on the belt during vibrations. I tried a couple different belt tensions and checked alignment...

    Enviolo automatic - vibrations + cadence + 22T + tension

    Hi everyone, This is a great forum with a lot of helpful members. I'm hoping to leverage some of your expertise as someone new to ebikes! Some background: I have a new Vado 5.0 IGH that is generally great except for some questionable vibrations coming from the Enviolo hub at times. I've read...
