    10 speed groupset

    I went down the Microshift route, panic bought 2 complete drivetrains beginning of Covid and multiple chains. The cogs on the cassette are very thin and wore out super fast, the derailleur got stiff prematurely - never fitted the 2nd set!

    10 speed groupset

    After burning through 11 speed and then very expensive EX1 8 speed drive trains I've found the heavy and cheap 10-Speed Deore 11-46 cassette, Rear Derailleur RD M5120 and heavy Shimano Chain 10-Speed - (HGX-E-bike). Outlasts everything by far, oil the chain every hour of riding for good measure.

    Turbo Levo Comp adding a display?

    These bike are so much fun you won't have time to look at the display. I've run Blevo in the past but now I just look at the data on Trailforks post ride. Don't get get caught up on the tech altho' it is tempting just because you can.

    MicroShift Drive Trains on EMTBs?

    I ditched SRAM EX1 8 speed due to the expense after 3 drivetrains. Microshift was the only one available, 10 speed with a long cage 11-48. Purchased 2x drivetrains, running SRAM 8 speed chain as it's heavy duty. The thickness of the cogs on the cluster is thinner and bent one yesterday, will be...

    12 speed to 9 or 10 speed?

    I've just received 2x 10 Microshift AdventX speed drivetrains by courier today, partly due to the short lifespan of a 11-48 EX-1. I'm on my 4th cassette and 5th derailleur and 2nd shifter. Cost of this is killing me also plus factor in lack of availability. My reasoning being 10 speed chains are...

    Levo Gen 2 Turbo Levo Rear wheel axle sheared

    I've broken 3 axles, there are some contributing factors: Thin wall thickness. Always fails at the the shoulder where the bearing seats, not helped by there being a sharp edge where a radius would help as is spreads the load. The through axle has a waist so the axle is not supported. That...

    What travel forks on your Levo?

    I'm running the same Cane Creek and 180mm Lyriks, the bike climbs way better as they absorb everything rather than deflecting.

    Levo Gen 2 need some new brakes for my 2020 comp what we got

    Hi there, I fitted a SRAM 210mm rotor, be aware they are 2mm thick, up from 1.6mm to setting the caliper is more crucial to avoid any rubbing.

    Levo Gen 2 Broke it .

    After breaking my 3rd axle on my Levo, my dealer fitted a better hub, off a Kenevo I think, at no charge.

    Levo Gen 2 what offset zeb fork and travel you would put on your 2020 levo?

    I run 180 Lyriks and find it climbs better than a 150's which seem to bounce off every little undulation. Don't care about the slack HA still not as lazy as a Kenevo, also slackness is not an issue as I DH orientated.

    Levo Gen 2 Levo 2020 motor grinding noise

    I had exactly the same issue twice. First time resolved after checking everything I could think of and removing the cassette and greasing the splines on the free hub and the surfaces where the cogs mate against each other where it's metal to metal, plastic spacers are not such a problem. Second...

    Levo, when I stop pedaling, the motor doesn't for a bit

    I had same issue which got worse as time went on making technical climbs a pain. Motor replaced under warranty as it was a sensor problem. Then the motor stripped its belt and now on 3rd motor. Specialized very good at supporting their product, so no complaints. Andrew

    Levo, when I stop pedaling, the motor doesn't for a bit

    Just a short amount, maybe a third of a chain ring revolution.

    Levo, when I stop pedaling, the motor doesn't for a bit

    I had the same issue in Turbo mode which was a pain on technical wet climbs. The dealer replaced the motor and now it's as it should be, they suspected a sensor in the motor. All the replies in the above regarding drivetrain and momentum I think are incorrect. Luckily here in NZ the brand is...

    Kenevo chain suck – what's your fix?

    I fixed mine by fitting a SRAM Eagle chainring, lots of relief in the trailing edges of the the teeth.
