    E-Bike Computer?

    Oh yes, we typically get a small suite where the bikes go into the room and everything, including the bikes get charged up over night. The weak link seems to be the fancy iWatches. The batteries on a rural trip are only good for about 5-6 hours. I have learned on long rides not to use the...

    E-Bike Computer?

    When we do long distance riding (200-300 miles) we typically ride about 50 miles a day so that equates to about 4-6 hour ride days (that is about max for my Wife). Then we check into a hotel, shower and relax. I think I will go with the bolt and give that a try. I hope it will recognize more...

    E-Bike Computer?

    I did take some time on the DCRainmaker website. Thanks for the referral! I did a comparison of the 540 vs the Roam and when I just looked at what I might be interested in they both cost about the same and were both excellent choices.

    Yes, why not a pointer to the most powerful but very light type 2 off road e bike? Thank God that my wife has become the ebike speed demon that she has!

    E-Bike Computer?

    Ok, am convinced to buy a real bike computer. Now to choose between the edge and element. It appears that the element is easier to configure but the garmin has a longer battery. I think easier to configure wins. Is there any big difference in the two versions of element other than screensize?

    E-Bike Computer?

    I live in the mountains in an area with some very steep hills. One of them is over 30 degrees. While on the flats, we tend to ride at about 18mph. Rides tend to exceed 1-2 hour runs. Yep, we do get work outs.

    E-Bike Computer?

    My bike has a huge battery and the display has a USB port. I tried it with my phone and it kept the phone at 100% for the 2 hour ride. Does either the Edge or Element have a port that I can plug into while it is on the bike? What I really want to monitor (for now) is cadence and HR. Can I...

    E-Bike Computer?

    LOL, I lived in Florida for a few years and caught a few Wahoo. None of them had bike computers! But all of them tasted excellent!

    Bafang to Rohloff belt drive question.

    Update. Zen sent the 19 cog sprocket and their service tech confirmed that the 128 belt would fit. After driving to Boise and going to three LBS that said they might be able to do it, I found a shop that actually worked on Rohloff and Gates and had the tools. It took the mechanic about 15...

    What size is my wheel?

    Thanks, I went out to the barn to try that and received a note from Zen saying it is a 27.5. Dont know why the set the computer to 26. But then there are several about the bike that make little or no sense.

    E-Bike Computer?

    The app did continue to run in the background but when I hung up it took me back to the main menu and since I was moving, I guess, it didn’t want to go back to the app and the screen shut off. What a PITA.

    E-Bike Computer?

    Any preference between Garmin Edge and Wahoo Element? I took a ride (25 miles) today and was using my iPhone as a bike computer until I started getting important calls…screwed everything up. (Or maybe it was operator error).

    What size is my wheel?

    I am riding my new Zen Photon Ultra and the speed and distance on my bike. The bike computer was set at the factory for a 26” wheel. The original specs on the bike said 27.5”. When I measure the diameter of the wheel from the floor to the top of the tire it is about 27.5” but the wheel rim is...

    E-Bike Computer?

    That is a great idea! I have had wahoo and garmin bike computers on my pre e-bike road and gravel bikes. It is one of the reasons I purchased both HR and cadence sensors from Wahoo. The two concerns I have about the iPhone setup is the need to take the phone off whenever I park the bike and...

    E-Bike Computer?

    Thanks, I now have 3 options to try. I have the health app on the watch tied to the phone, RidewithGPS and Cadence. I did buy a bluetooth HR and Cadence monitor, so one of those should work. Meanwhile I an waiting for the rear sprocket and a day spent getting it installed. Have a great...

    E-Bike Computer?

    Just ordered the Wahoo HR monitor and added it to the kit. (Kit is now wahoo HR sensor, Wahoo cadence sensor, quadlock device for iPhone and short power cord for iPhone). Now will have the option of using the watch data or phone data. I will come back after it all arrives and tell how it...

    E-Bike Computer?

    Just checked the bike, it has a USB outlet under the display. According to Apple OS10.5 I can now pair my watch to a bluetooth device in the outdoor cycle mode and display the data on my iPhone. Will now buy a bluetooth cadence sensor, short cable and a iPhone mount for the bike and try that.
