Every now and then, Thok invite owners of Thok bikes to their Thok Tribe event. This time, more than 400 people took part. There were people from...
I am about to purchase my first dual suspension ebike and have gotten myself completely confused about what I will buy. Below is my criteria.
$6500 budget, this is strict. Under is fine, but it's my upper limit.
I'm in Australia so shipping and availability must be considered.
I have and orange phase Ep8 2022 with a sc en600 computer unit, Im having trouble with linking the Bluetooth with the E-TUBE app. Does the sc en600 have Bluetooth?? If not what do I need to connect it to a pc/laptop.
We’ve had a couple of encounters with the new EP8 motor already. We rode it on a Yeti, and it was so quiet. Despite riding on frozen and noisy surfaces, we were quite confident this motor was silent.
Watch the video of our ride on the new Shimano motors, or keep reading below.
I apologize, I did not write an article based on this this interview. It was just too long. You'll have to suffer through all the 24 minutes of video to catch my interview with Nick, MTB Product Manager for Shimano America.
We talk about ebike motors in general, and we talk about the new EP8...
At first glance, the new carbon Orbea Rise doesn't look new. The frame looks the same and it still comes with a 360 Wh battery. I take a closer look at the bike, a very close look at the motor and a quick glimpse at the app in this video. Check it out or keep reading below.
A good amount of...
I had the chance to look at the new Shimano EP8 (EP801). It was a cold and icy day, which wasn't perfect, but it's not like I could decline the opportunity. I try to illustrate how silent it is in my video. Check it out or keep on reading below.
Rattle and hum?
The test bike is a 2022 model...
The Shimano EP8 is a 2.65kg and 85Nm motor that is used on many full power emtbs. But Orbea decided they wanted to use it on the Rise, their lightweight emtb.
The Orbea Rise was released with a 360Wh battery. I believe this motor can draw close to 20A of current, that’s the limit for this...
Shimano has announced the new EP6 and an updated EP8 motor. But there are more changes happening. Let's have a look at what's listed on the Shimano website for 2023.
There are 4 emtb motors out on the Shimano website; E7000, EP6, EP8 (EP800) and EP8 (EP801). Shimano has a habit of...
Our trip starts from a small parkinglot in Gol of Norway. We were heading for the highest peak of the Gol district. At 1.296 meters above sea level. The autumn colors were just starting to show, on this day early in September. Even though temperatures never rose above 10*C, riding conditions...
My EP8’s been playing up in two ways at 1000km (Edit 2: Thanks to the crew for moving to the correct place 😊😊😊).
Reporting the symptoms for other’s info as I’ll report the LBS solution when I have that and I’d be interested if anybody has had either of these two symptoms.
If you feel tempted to...
Trying to install an XT Di2 rear derailleur onto my EP8 equipped Merida eOne Sixty 700 bike.
Has anyone done this?? Or has a bike equipped with EP8 and a XT Di2 rear derailleur?
I have the following items:
XT Di2 Rear Der (RD-M8050-GS)
Shift Switch (SW-E7000_R)
Len me say I used to ride bike Bosch Gen3 with Kiox display.
Now I’m with EP8 motor and I’m missing some metrics.
Bosch eBike app was displaying how much nM you are putting and how much the motor give you. Also you could see the mode you used in certain period.
However with EP8 I can’t...
Hello i'm new here. Just looking to find out if i can fit a Sram GX DUB crankset to a shimano EP8 motor. It currently has stock shimano eMtb cranks with the chainring lock ring that needs the tool LRT2. Will the GX crankset fit straight in or is it not compatible? Thanks👍🏼
Afternoon guys, over the last month my bike has started making a clunk/click noise when the motor is engaged and only when pedaling applying pressure going uphill.
I'm not the techy type so wondered if anyone could pass on advice as to what it may be?
Initially I've thought the freehub or...
A few of our group have the latest 2021 Merida E160 with Shimano EP8 motor.
But yesterday one friend’s bike had 4 bars of battery and turned off an hour into the ride.
Pressing the on/off button, it would then light up, but turn off again in a couple of seconds.
We thought maybe...
