Anyone used Walk mode with non Di2 gear, ie normal gears, I was out playing / exploring some local off piste downhills yesterday which meant I went down a few dead ends etc and thought ah, walk mode would be great hear to help me back up, but I couldn't feel any help at all, keep trigger pressed, felt a bit of forward motion, but as soon as I started walking couldn't feel any assistance from the bike, any thoughts?

Needs to be in a high gear / small cog as the motor spins at a set rate. Also need to apply a little backward pressure sometimes to get it started.

Can also sometimes feel like it's not working, but turn it off and you quickly realise it is!

I have used it often particularly in places where it gets too steep to ride. As mentioned above, you can change your gears in walk mode to adjust forward speed.

Need to select down trigger say from Trial to Eco to OFF then Walk, release and then keep pressed on the down trigger should engage walk mode.
