    e-MTB parts YOU want to forget

    Since my post I’ve been using them during the winter months. I agree that they are not the grippiest tyre, but they do wear well. I find them heavy, slow rolling and easily clogged with mud. I certainly would not get them again. I now have a Specialized Butcher on the front and just use the rear.

    Anyone dealt with 4mybike in Germany selling E-8000 motors on Ebay?

    Update on my situation. I went the LBS / Madison route. LBS ran diagnostics, which basically said there is a ‘communication error’! LBS sent data file to Madison, 1 week later they asked for the motor to be sent to them. 2 weeks later, after some nagging from LBS, Madison agreed to give me a...

    Madison confirm EP8 available as upgrade - INFO

    Thanks again. Also not sure about VAT and taxes. I’d rather pay a bit more and get from a UK supplier. The difference, as a percentage of the overall cost, is minimal.

    Madison confirm EP8 available as upgrade - INFO

    Hi Spiff, Thanks for looking, someone sent me this link in another post. https://www.sigmasports.com/item/Shimano/EW-AD305-SD300-to-SD50-Conversion-Adapter/X684 I have ascertained that my current display (SC-E8000) is not compatible. I found this compatibility document in another post...

    Upgrading Shimano motor

    Hi JimBob, very good points. Looks like some more thought is needed on the project.

    Upgrading Shimano motor

    Hi, that would be a possibility but for the fact that they already fit the EP800 to their current E-Sommet range. My bike is a 2019 VR.

    Upgrading Shimano motor

    Great work, well done so far. I’m in the process of replacing a broken, out of warranty e8000, motor with Madison. They charge £920 for it, so paying slightly more for the EP8 is worthwhile. I realise that the display, switch and some adapters are needed but this seems worthwhile. It would be...

    Madison confirm EP8 available as upgrade - INFO

    My e8000 has failed (E010 / W0013) and I’m out of warranty. This seems like a good way of upgrading, especially considering that an e8000 from Madison is £ 920. I had a quick look online for the adapters and the only place that seems to sell them is a shop in Italy (on eBay). Ridiculous delivery...

    Anyone dealt with 4mybike in Germany selling E-8000 motors on Ebay?

    @Spiff, thanks I did see that and it is a concern. The other ‘issue’ is that the seller offers a 2 year warranty, but the motor has to be returned to Germany for them to evaluate! I’m still hopeful that Madison can sort me out and I don’t mind paying extra to get a UK warranty.

    Anyone dealt with 4mybike in Germany selling E-8000 motors on Ebay?

    @ Thimlicek, thanks for your prompt reply. The main reason for my question is that I am in the UK and wanted to know what duties and fees are payable (I know that I will have to pay 20% VAT). Since you are in the EU these will not be an issue for you.

    Eddy Current tyres? (Previously a question on casings)

    I ran Eddy Current front and rear tyres during the wet winter months. They are heavy but bullet proof. I would that they offered less grip than a Magic Mary, but more than a Hans Dampf. One thing that I noticed is that they have quite a lot of drag. They will be good for hard pack and rocky...

    Vitus E-Sommet VR

    Mines a 2019 VRS. I’ve had it for just over 3 years now and done just over 4000 km as I tend to ride my analogue bike a lot more and keep the VRS for E-bike group rides. Changed nothing, just regular maintenance. I run it in 50% setting for each mode and that seems plenty enough for me. I can...

    I have V24.10 (1 November 2021) on my Fenix 5X and it’s not showing any e-bike specific activity options. Perhaps still coming🤞.

    E-Sommet bearing numbers and torque values (incl headset bearing info and rear thru axle spec)

    Thanks Gary, that’s what I thought. Just thought I’d raise this as someone buying just that bearing press will be very annoyed when they come to remove the bearings and find that they can’t.
