    Turbo Vado SL 5.0 and Specialized App - Range Extender

    I'll have to try that. The docs for the bike say that it will lose power below a certain level though. Isn't that kind of distracting during a ride?

    Turbo Vado SL 5.0 and Specialized App - Range Extender

    Did a 30 mile ride with the new range extender while I had it in RE Discharge First mode. Got about 20 miles out of it and I used Turbo mode a bit more, which I almost never do. It was fun! That bike can go fast! Shortly after when the RE battery got down to 1 bar, I switched back to dual...

    Turbo Vado SL 5.0 and Specialized App - Range Extender

    Just got an RE and wanted to set the bike to use it first. I assume it's the option that says "Discharge Range Extender ..." I'm guessing the whole text didn't fit on the screen for some reason.

    Turbo Vado SL 4.0 rear wheel hub loose

    Turbo Vado SL 4.0 rear wheel hub loose

    Was wondering the same thing after taking a peek at the wheel. I'd have to take the wheel off the bike to look closer. Maybe it uses spindle bearings, which might be simpler to deal with.

    Turbo Vado SL 4.0 rear wheel hub loose

    I asked about dropping the wheel and they won't do it that way. They want the whole bike. I think I'm just going to get a set of wheel bearing cone wrenches and do it myself. The bearings are fine, it's just the cone that's loose and it needs to be snugged up. With as much as I ride, I...

    Turbo Vado SL 4.0 rear wheel hub loose

    I guess I'll need to bring it to the bike shop. They're backed up for weeks and you can't make an appointment. You just have to drop your bike off and then they will work on it when they can. It sucks because we're having some nice weather and I want to ride.

    Turbo Vado SL 4.0 rear wheel hub loose

    Just picked up a Turbo Vado SL 4.0 (2023) in February and have been enjoying it ever since. So far, I put on about 550 miles and recently noticed that the rear wheel hub now has a lot of play in it. It's enough where if you jiggle the wheel side-to-side, you can make the brake disc hit the brake...
