    Turbo Tero 3.0 questions

    Good deal! Just wanted to make sure that wouldn't hurt the motor. I guess it wouldn't be that big a deal to just drop the assistance just before I jump out of the saddle, but figured the boost from the motor while climbing would be better. Thanks!

    Turbo Tero 3.0 questions

    s Hey Stefan, thanks for the reply but it doesn't answer my question as to whether doing so will adversely affect the motor. Last I checked, I've biked well over 210,000 miles in a bit over 30 years and I was once pretty fast. I know how I like to ride, and just got the e-bike for assistance...

    I appreciate the response guys. A 710 wh battery should make range a non issue I'd think, since my brother rides a big old heavy RAD bike with a 750 wh battery on our annual 400 mile ride. Even loaded to the max, he doesn't have range problems and he's kicking my butt. Since I'm getting a...

    Turbo Tero 3.0 questions

    I'm new to e biking after 30 years of high mileage road and trail riding. Age and a knee replacement have led me rather reluctantly to an ebike. I researched online and ordered a Specialized Turbo Tero 3.0(arrives tomorrow), which I realize is on the lower end of the spectrum. Figures for...
