So, are the LBS or Cube doubting this occurred after a small drop and is the result of unacceptable crash damage?, accepting a warranty claim, or thinking about it?
I bet it cannot be proven either way, but you have to appreciate they will suspect the former.
It has to come down to benefit of...
Oh sh1te :eek:
Just realised, I have put an E-bike specific Ergon saddle on my featherweight carbon hardtail push bike.
Can the saddle take the stress of pedalling hard without a motor?
Will my arse ever be the same? will the frame fail under the additional stress of the e-bike specific saddle...
:ROFLMAO: That reminds me of a tale from my youth.
My mate was burgled while out at work, but they hardly took anything.
He thought they must have been disturbed, as his video recorder (we are talking 80's) was left half in a bin bag on the lounge floor.
Policeman said "no mate... they got it...
They might not actually be manufactured, merely marketed as such to extract maximum margin from an otherwise basic chain.
For years lighter chains have been demanding premium money.
Those super lightweight chains might not be appropriate for the "allegedly" higher torque generated by an e-bike...
Isn't that likely to account for more difference in feel, than between XT and MT-420?
I have the MT-420 on a new hardtail push bike.
Before the bike even arrived I was contemplating upgrading to XT to match the rest of the bike.
But after a few miles I can't justify the upgrade on cost, weight...
There is no sealed casing to open.
Only the loose plastic cover on the non drive side which has plenty of holes in it anyway.
And the black alloy frame fillet on the drive side which is also open, just frame strengthening.
Don't touch any of the actual motor casing bolts. It is pretty obvious...
Gary's vid finishes on The Mound.
Forever imprinted in my memory.
I was joint project lead on the restoration of The Mound for HBOS in 2005/06
Basically lived in The Caledonian for two years, Great job, stunning outcome, loved every second.
I enjoy a long road ride every now and again, but...
As above, absolutely sensational.
I would be in, if I could secure a week pass out. It would cost me a new kitchen though.
IMO so much better than the tedious Bike Park stunts "look what tricks I can do, Bro" videos. Each to their own I guess.
I had a Mk1 just like that (except I don't remember the headrest)
God I thought I had arrived. My dad called it the "mustard menace"
I was way too small for it, I could barely peddle and had no stand-over whatsoever.
Every dismount involved bashing my tackle on the top tubes before keeling over...
