    Surely the ride qualities are a moot point when you have an unrideable, unfixable bike after 6 months.

    So, are you going to provide some insight to readers how you go about getting it fixed independently without just handing it back ? It would be a useful insight for most of us.

    Anyone else looking through Trisportsresort on eBay trying to figure out which of their recent sales was the stw test bike? 😁

    I think there are threads on emtb forums about setting these motors up and fixing them. I think you need the besst tool.

    If I’d purchased one of these bikes since the test period ended and the bike died, (Jan 24th?), I’d be rather annoyed that the long term test had only just been released!

    Someone told me that Cycle Fast in Sowerby Bridge specializes in eBike diagnostics.

    Reading that just makes my head hurt.
    Does no one proof-read things before they publish them on the site?

    I feel like we’re constantly moaning about the reviews lately.

    At least this one was longer, but I’ve rarely seen so many typos in an article.

    Can Bafang be approached directly to sort out warranty faults now that Vitus/CRC are dead?

    If I’d spent £4k on a new bike after the initial first reviews raved about it I would be pissed if it was now junk.

    Essentially, you don’t get TRAIL’s peak assistance until you’re inputting around 250 watts. And the assistance is delivered in an exponential curve. Pootling about (soft pedalling 100 watts ish) will get you a modest amount of assistance, putting some effort in will get you a lot more assistance out.

    As an Orbea Rise owner I’m intrigued that more full fat bikes seem to be moving towards a power delivery that actually requires you to ride them, change gear etc (delivering power at higher cadences and rider input).   Personally dislike the “as soon as the pedals are turning the motors giving it’s all” style of a lot of e bikes.  (No need to change gear, just boost up the hill in the middle of the cassette at low cadence)

    as far as i`m aware all ebikes have a setting like this – my shimano and bosch bikes, and the yamaha hire bikes ive used , certainly do. they are not new bikes btw.

    the main issue will be motor warrenty for the poor buggers who have been landed with one of these. is there even a UK importer/service for these motors like shimano/bosch etc?? or was that CRC?
