    Trance X E+ Pro 2021

    Another thought. My fork had pressure in the lower leg at purchase. The air bleeder was blocked with grease, so whenever I pressed it NO air came out. Long story, but I figured it out, and a dozen presses on the bleeder button later, and air started to come out. The fork immediately got better.

    Trance X E+ Pro 2021

    I like the fork, and the shock, pretty soft, so I'm at 80 Psi in the front, started at 75 Psi. I'll likely add at least another 5 pounds, based on my ride today. https://www.ridefox.com/fox17/help.php?m=bike&id=1082

    Should e bikes have gearboxes?

    Unfortunately Gaint is trying to figure out the electronic along with you. I've not heard of any updates solving charge trouble. Have you popped the battery out and reseated it? Have you tried charging with battery off bike?

    Should e bikes have gearboxes?

    [email protected] The industry doesn't want gearboxes.if it wanted them, we would have them. It's a hard problem for bicycle standardization to encompass, just like mid drives are. Standards seem to be a big deal in the bicycle industry. I'm not sure why this is, to be honest🤔...

    Saving Tuning in the Ride Control app?

    I send reports to my dealer and they have been good to follow up, though I'm not sure it's helping the beleaguered Gaint app developers. 🤕
