In Finland I got 25 km per ride, normally 200-400 meters vertical. So I get three rides before have to charge. Yes I know, i’m living in flat land. Consumption is about 1 Wh per km.Do most KSL owners only use like 50-75 battery points per ride? That doesn’t get you very far.
there’s likely problems with draining the external battery to the point that they’ll never consider it.
You're correct.For those who have gone the mullet route, did you do any other changes to tweak the geometry?
Playing around with the numbers, it seem like if I went to a 180mm fork, high bottom bracket and middle headtube angle, the BB height and head tube angle would be similar to the stock geo with 29er front/rear, 170mm fork, and low/slack settings.
What were the signs/symptoms of stripped clutch?Has anyone actually seen their battery health drop? I have 67 charge cycles with my battery health still showing 100%, and I'm wondering if that's accurate.
Also, just got my first motor replacement after 1,450 miles. The internal sprag clutch (or whatever clutch system they use) stripped out on me. It'd be interesting to hear if that's happened to anyone else here, cause my shop said I was the first they've seen that happen to.
Great, right choice.Posting here as a proud new owner. I was very much on the fence between full power and a lightweight. Had test ridden a heap of full fat's in the last couple of weeks, but one quick test ride on the KSL at a dealer was all it took. When I came across a deal that was too good to ignore on a 22 KSL with Fox Factory 38's and a coil shock, the decision was made. I managed to sneak in a quick ride on Boxing day and wow. So stoked on the new ride. Cannot wait to get out on it again.
Looks like it just got the hanger! Should be good just grabbing a replacement
As someone that was really unhappy with the Code’s I came across a suggestion to try thicker rotors. After installing the HS2 rotors (HS2 Rotor - RT-HS-2-A1 - SRAM) I am much happier. They do not have the “on/off” feel of My XT’s on my Stumpy but I think I actually prefer this now. Been running them for two months and not wanted to change brakes.Proud owner of a new KSL expert, and got my first ride in yesterday. Overall quite pleased with it. Having no idea what to expect from the battery, I spent a lot of time in eco mode. After 22 miles and 4500 ft vert (35km/1370m), still had 42% of battery remaining. So I put it in turbo mode for the 5 mile/1000ft fireroad slog back to the parking lot and that drained the battery to 9%.
As a long time fan of Shimano brakes, the Codes feel woefully underpowered. I might give it a few more rides, but will probably swap them out. Fork and shock needs some dialing in, but decided to swap the fork for the Manitou Mezzer that was on my other bike. I figure the Fox 38 performance elite probably has good resale value. The shock handled single hits well, but less impressive in chattery stuff.
