    2022/23 Mondraker Crafty Carbon - a short review

    Bosch delivered a prototype bike so we could finally test the Bosch Performance CX Race motor. Attached to that motor was a Mondraker Crafty Carbon. The specs don’t correspond to any of the 2023 models, so we’ll just call it the Crafty. Riding this bike reminded us of how much we enjoyed riding...

    Bigger chainring = higher top speed! Have you had any problems? Bosch Gen3

    He folks, Ok, So I have a Cube Acid One hybrid 2020. It has the 65nm gen 3 motor from bosch fitted. I am travelling mostly on country roads and I'm mostly in the higher 3 gears. At top speed like 28mph (thanks to road tyres being fitted), I feel as if I can go faster but I'm just spinning...

    Bosch Smart System and integrated light

    Hi, I’ve just bought a wonderful (at least to me :p) Moterra Neo Carbon 1. It has a useful and powerful Lezine light directly connected to Bosch Smart System. There’s only one thing I don’t really understand: why every time I turn on the bike the light is automatically on too? That’s...

    Review: 2023 Unno Boös Race (Unno Mith)

    Having ridden mountainbikes since long before the emtbs, I thought I knew most brands. But Unno was new to me. So, are they like one of those new companies that make an ebike and care more about looks than performance? Boy was I wrong! The former World Cup DH rider Cesar Rojo and Cero Design are...

    Wild FS H20 2021 front light wiring?

    Hi all, does the Wild come with the wiring already fitted in the motor and frame for the front light? Asking for a friend otherwise I would look myself. My Trek rail does, just wondering if this is a trek thing, but secretly hoping it’s a Bosch thing and they put the wiring in all the bikes...

    I bought my Focus Jam2 from JE James in May and since then, they have had it back with them for 40(give or take) days. Without going into a load of detail, the bike hadn’t been assembled properly (dropper post wouldn’t work, seals hanging out, severe creaking and wrong size chain put on) but...

    Shimano Di2 integration with Bosch

    I love how the Di2 works and I would like to install the Di2 system on my new Bosch ebike. Do you have any experience with that? What I need particularly is to connect the Di2 to the Bosch battery to avoid additional battery for the Di2 only. I've got a full Di2 set in my previous Shimano Steps...
