OK. New, but still feeling a bit dumb.
I got Auto Mode to work with a bit of help from Australia. (Thanks, SoftSand)
Works great and thanks for the tip. It is lower than ‘Off’.
Now...
I can’t get Walk Mode’ to work.
Help is more than welcome!!

There is not a button on the underside of the controller?

YES. Worked. Sort of 🤔
Does the Up button have to be held down?
Does it drop out of Walk Mode when forward motion stops?
Many Thanks!

Oldcrank I'm not sure how it works with the latest software that you have but on mine that has the old software once the bike starts moving in walk mode if it gets to a point where there is no load it stops offering assistance so then the bike slows down again load is placed on the motor again and it takes off and this cycle repeats itself and can be quite jerky.
It only seems to work well went you've got to walk it up a really steep slope which places a constant load on the system. I very rarely use mine. most of the time I just use it if I get to a set of lights or a gate and I'm in too high a gear so I'll use the front brake to pop my rear wheel in the air and spin the wheel up so I can shift down a couple of gears.

Walk mode seems to be pretty much useless.

Heaven forbid somebody might try to use it as a throttle, and offend some law or other? This is a weak explanation, but the only one I have for why walk mode is so bad.

I know what you mean about EU rules.
I was surprised at lack of kick stand!

I haven’t been able to get mine to work smoothly or constantly either. I read somewhere that shifting to a higher gear works better, but I’ve not been bothered enough to try it out.
That would make it a ’run’ I instead of a ’walk’ wouldn’t it? :giggle:

Welcome to the wonderful world of e-mountain biking.
Off-road, BMX, mountain bikes (and competition road bikes) do not have kick stands for good reason. They pose an impalement hazard for you and others in an event of a crash.
So you’re now part of the crowd that looks for places to lean our bikes against! :cool:

I am moving over from Fat Tire bike.

OK, my 2 speed kick back coaster brake does have a kick stand. And fenders & lights & panniers. 😉
