Well She’s finally home and I missed her. I forgot how hard it is out there? Much longer and I’d get in shape IF it didn’t kill me!2019 Kenevo expert wouldn’t change modes (eco trail turbo) following wet ride and wash. Shop changed the power cable but when I picked it up the problem returned before I left the parking lot. LBS did firmware update and battery test which shows cells are ok and at 87% with almost 200 charge cycles. The battery boots up and shows 1 green light and no error codes. Seems like it’s either the thumb switch or TCU? It’s been a month so I need to investigate before riding the acoustic kills me? The shop doesn’t have that generation spare battery to rule out the thumb switch. Any ideas on what to suggest? Thanks
LBS Black Mt Bikes sent video of start up and sent diagnostics to Specialized. 200 charge cycles and 87% health so despite being a few months out of warranty Specialized sent a new battery and LBS did firmware update and full charge and on my first ride yesterday it worked flawlessly and I smiled all the way. Of course BLEVO will need to be updated for new Bluetooth but the Specialized app recognized it. During the ride, this dialogue kept going through my head for my Strava post for everyone who thought I’d been jilted:
“Kenevo, is that you? Oh Baby I missed you. I forgot how hard it is out there without you. Please come home. What? Have I been riding other bikes? Now don’t be like that. You are Special. Let me look deep into your Special Eyes.
At Least she’s home! But only if I promise no more abuse and keep her dry and warm.
New battery with TCU seems to have solved the problem and thanks Specialized for the new battery even though I am out of the warranty period.”
