Exactly how my two motors sounded. The third isn’t silent and does increase in volume but so far only to the same level as an ep-8mShimano.I have this issue... but keep telling myself its how a 17K bike should sound...lol... till I rode Kanuga... and other sworks riders motors were quiet as a mouses ass.
I am keeping a close ear on it as I think it was slightly louder at the end of todays ride. If it goes I’ll keep on Specialised until I get a quiet one.
I’m sure it’s the belt expending with heat build up. I could feel it vibrating on the dodgy motors_ Specialised need to get this sorted and also they need to own up and acknowledge it’s a fairly widespread issue. And they better be working on a proper fix.
Belts snapping on the old and grinding on the new. No wonder the bikes are expensive. They need to factor in three or four motors for each bike.
