    Battery inside

    Garages without heating, like mine, temperatures will go very low then up as the sun hits the roof. Bad news for damp/condensation. Take your battery inside. In winter mine lives under the kitchen table (just about tolerable by the misses, only as its hard to see).

    Brand X Ascend WIRELESS dropper

    Nice idea, but longevity will be an issue (more places for water to penetrate). Just bought a replacement for my old cable dropper, £99 for a Fox 150mm, reduced for black friday at Wiggle: Bargain :-)

    Intermittent ticking sound? Very strange

    It could be your wheel spokes. Try spraying the spokes with a fine oil (eg. WD40). I have a wheel that does this and before I knew what it was it used drive me mad. BTW best not spray your hearing aids with WD40.

    Cable routing in frame - please STOP it....!

    I am not sure as the feel will not be the same; also latency will be noticable with brakes where its fine for gears.

    Kenevo Gen1 Official 2020 Kenevo Owners Thread

    Thought I would give an heads up on the rear cable and brake pipe wear mine has suffered: Searching this thread I noticed there are several who have already "enjoyed" replacing the rear gear cable and brake pipe...

    Cable routing in frame - please STOP it....!

    there is the division: practical v pretty! As for spotting the wear, it was not possible as the worn part is hidden within the swing-arm tubes. Also, note the additional cable/pipe covering ends too soon, this is a manufacturers fault.

    Other Mastermind “did not” switch on. Then, it fixed itself.

    Oh, not by me. DOH. Suppose that is a good heads up to me and other emtb owners! Still, glad I got the motor out as now I can correct the gear-cable and brake-pipe issue, which would have become fatal.

    Cheers for your reply. Decided to pull the motor out and check the connections - which are FINE! Typical. Now need to check rest of wiring. But whilst I had the motor out I found this:

    Cable routing in frame - please STOP it....!

    Manufacturers/designers are stupidly routing cables/wires/brake-pipes in the frame, and more recently via the head stock too. This pathetic behaviour is resulting in lots of issues for all of us: Search results for query: cable routing My Turbo Kenevo comp has done just over 2k miles, the rear...

    My Kenevo has done something similar: Has your bike been ok since the issue?

    Turbo Kenevo Comp - RED light on TCU when turn on!

    one year on and... would you believe it its not starting again :-( Of course this is since I washed it, and all it does is as above (flash of red light then nothing). It must have water ingress from somewhere?! Taken battery out, cleaned connections a few times, no change. Any pointers...

    Comment by 'dave_uk' in article 'Not sure the new SRAM Eagle Transmission is for you - What other options are there ?'

    I do think belt or shaft drive would be great, as the faffffff with the chain cheaning/oiling would not be missed. All too often the designs seem to me as they are over complicated, they need to KISS it. [that is keep it simple stupid, nothing to do with my ass]

    this looks beneficial - stops pedal strikes on sharp angle uphill turns.

    General Question about Giant Popularity

    I quite understand and accept your reply: you have to support Giant if you sell/ride them. Its the norm for lesser model owner/sellers to attempt to vitiate Specialized.
