    Article Polini E-P3+ motor review

    I really don't think we got the wrong motor, even though the thought struck our minds. When connecting the app, the motor is listed as "E-P3 PLUS 12.f0.94". So it seems right, but I don't know what it says when connecting the MX, could be only the last digits are different... I have returned the...

    Article Polini E-P3+ motor review

    Yeah, we were wondering if the two motors were the same. I mean, they look identical and Polini list the same weight for both. "Could it be the 75 Nm motor is just a firmware upgrade away from becomin an MX?" That's what I initially wrote in the article, but I removed it. My local Polini contact...

    Article Polini E-P3+ motor review

    One guy in the comment section of the video claim Polini is using the same mount pattern as Shimano. I haven't verified this though.

    Article Polini E-P3+ motor review

    Yeah, that thought crossed my mind (: But we decided we probably got the correct motor. The MX motor has the letters "MX" written on it, the 75 Nm version says E-P3, like on ours. As can be seen here. POLINI E-P3+ MOTOR IS BORN - Polini Motori We can't say for sure though. Who knows, perhaps...

    Article Polini E-P3+ motor review

    Unfortunateli, we never remove the motors and study how they are mounted. So I really don't know what to say. It never struck me as being similar to any other mounts :/

    Anybody done a Kindernay on a Trance or Reign?

    Nice! Kindernay claim a break-in period of like 500 km. The rough edges of the fresh cogs/gears makes the internals move less smoothly. On the K7 we tested there were little noise. I've heard other claims about the hub being noisy, but I couldn't relate. On my K7 there is noticeably more...

    Anybody done a Kindernay on a Trance or Reign?

    Nice. How are the hoses currently run at the main triangle? Getting them in and running them through the battery compartment should be doable on a lot of brands. The hoses could cause some rattle. Exiting the frame seems to be more of a challenge, especially if you want to run them through the...

    Article Introducing the new Cannondale Moterra & Moterra LT

    Yeay, they went super boost to move the chain away from the frame, another reason the chainstays were so short on the gen1. Now that the CS length is over 450 mm, I can't see any reason to go 157x12. I'm pretty sure super boost was gone already on the previous generation Moterra and Habit Neo.

    Article Is the Shimano EP8 a bad motor?

    Yeah, you're right! I've got no experience with that, only how warranty requests/repairs are handled. We are so fortunate to have 5 yrs of warranty here. So it's mostly just a few Yamaha PW and Bosch Performance (not CX) emtb motors that are out of warranty so far. I ask Shimano about...

    Article Is the Shimano EP8 a bad motor?

    Ease of service might be different in different parts of the world. Around here, Shimano has been fairly easy to deal with. I've had issues with Bosch, Yamaha and Shimano on my own bikes. But it's been a while ago, back before I did many reviews. Bosch was dificult, they wanted to inspect the...
