    10.000 km with the SuperDelite 2020 (and counting)

    I had to replace belt and sprockets 600km ago (i.e. at a bit more than 18000km), and this was due to my riding a lot in Winter 19/20 and last autumn with wet&dirty roads and track which consequently led to a lot of gunk on the bike and the belt. Have time to write now because with the amount of...

    10.000 km with the SuperDelite 2020 (and counting)

    Of course, your bike mechanic should be competent enough to correctly tension the belt when you get it in the shop...

    10.000 km with the SuperDelite 2020 (and counting)

    Counter is now at 18933km And that is the major reason I was so remiss in posting here. I am just spending most of my free time on the SuperDelite. In the long average of the first year I averaged a bit more than 50km each calendary day. At my average 120 Watt in "Tour" that equates to about...

    Superdelite pros and cons - Worth it the extra weight?

    The medium and large Deliite frames accept the 625WH battery (MY2021), the SuperDelite frames accept it in the lower battery. I regularly ride my Superdelite 2020 well more than 50km. I will post on range later on in "my" thread but for now the TLDR: range is relative and you cannot have too...

    New gates products

    Would be interesting to know whether the new sprockets can be retrofitted to my 2020 SuperDelite. The way I am going I will need to replace the origninals in two years or sooner.

    [SuperDelite] Strange noise from rear brake?

    Wow - wouldn't have thought that the entire wheel was misaligned... So effectively it was a misaligned disk, only that the wheel was misaligned too.

    Charging iPhone while riding via USB port on Kiox

    I use a micro USB-B to micro USB-B cable. Works, even with the micro USB-A slot at the Kiox. The cable is unidirectional for power though, so I have to take care to use it the right way around.

    [SuperDelite] Strange noise from rear brake?

    That "singing" in a dry brake is usually a sign of a brake pad which all but lost its coating. Should not happen after only 100km though, but I had this happen early once in my old Charger when a grain (or more) of sand was caught in the brake and chafed away the coating very early (well before...

    How do Rock Razor tires work on paved road?

    I originally used the Rock Razors on my 2020 SuperDelite GX Rohloff. I did have one puncture quite early and have been packing a small emergency kit ever since: 1 can of puncture slime, 1 small air pump and several folded paper towels, all in a sealed 1 liter plastic bag. Never had to use this...

    What computer for a Superdelite?

    I use an ultra-cheap (<70€ incl. 19% German VAT) Chinese 7" Android tablet runnig komoot and the bosch e-bike connect apps. Works ok with the Kiox, epecially since the June update of the Kiox software. Some comfort is missing though, the cheap tablet only has a basic GPS, no electronic compass...

    10.000 km with the SuperDelite 2020 (and counting)

    Counter is now at 10962km. To clarify the belt issue from my last post in the review comments: The Gates Belt ridges have a notch in the middle which corresponds to a central ridge on the sprockets that divides them in two. What happened was that on stopping the belt jumped this ridge on the...

    Superdelite - How many miles are you getting on brake pads?

    I am on my third set of brake pads and will need to change again next week (another 800km or so). By my experience the brake pads need to be changed every 3.000-3.500km or so. I was a bit remiss with the last change though.
