  1. Little late to the party, but I finally made it!
  2. The cars are the part that worries me. We’ve driven the route a few times over the years and with how narrow those roads are and how much traffic there is this time of year, I’m pretty nervous about tackling it on the 16x.
  3. Colors are changing in the mountains. Anyone done the Alpine loop around this time of year?
  4. 250mi Update The Tire At about 200mi the tire felt like it "broke in". It got really soft and bouncy making me think that I had a flat or a slow leak. Every time I checked the pressure though, it came back 39-40psi (using an Accurite guage). I rode about 200mi on 40psi and 50mi on 25psi. Everyone who said to lower the tire pressure WAS RIGHT!!! It completely changed the wheel for the better. Small bumps like sidewalk cracks and small branches have basically disappeared. The wheel feels so much more flowy and carvy and it has really upped my confidence level. Firmware I upd
  5. The top of the posts under the trolley handle has 2 screws that could use some loctite. I'm also adding some to all of my panel screws under the pads, and the 2 set screws that hold the metal bar in that slides through the pedals just for some peace of mind.
  6. Mine came with 2 fuses. Both were green and I think they were 30a. Looked like the small automotive fuses that are about the size of a fingernail.
  7. I tightened all the screws and the creaking has subsided a lot. I think I'll loctite them at 250mi just to be safe.
  8. Upgraded to 1.05 this morning before my commute. I'm not sure if it was the firmware or the horizontal calibration but the wheel feel SO MUCH more locked in now. 11mi so far on the new firmware and it feels good. I don't connect to the bluetooth for music though, so I'm not sure if the issues related to that have been resolved as I never experienced them. I've noticed this as well. I keep thinking my tire has a leak or is getting low, but I'm still right at 39PSI.
  9. @chrisjunlee @Patton250 Have the cases of your wheels started creaking when you squeeze with your ankles/legs? I'm starting to get some creaking whenever I shift my weight from leg to leg and I'm clamping on the wheel. I'm wondering if every 200mi or so I should go through and tighten all the screws on the case and/or add some loctite to them.
  10. Other than whatever the PSI it came from the factory, no not yet. I haven't found a reason to. Plus I'm kind of an efficiency snob, so the higher PSI should give me less rolling resistance, better torque, and more range.
  11. I'm ~200lbs and if I duck my feet and put the weight on the outsides of my feet/pedals I get no acceleration/braking wobbles. If my legs are tucked in tight to the wheel and my feet are straight, I can get wobbles pretty consistently under hard acceleration and hard braking. Disclaimer: This is my first wheel and I've only got 130mi on it so far.
  12. I'm around 200 fully-loaded (full protection, full backpack in commute mode). I get speed/brake wobbles if my feet are straight on the pedals hugging the wheel. If I duck my feet out and put my weight on the outsides of my feet/pedals, I get no wobbles. Currently running the stock tire at 40PSI.
  13. Day 8/100-120mi I messed around with foot/weight placement quite a lot. I was able to consistently reproduce hard acceleration speed wobbles and hard braking wobbles. When I ducked my feet more on the pedals (more like this \ / instead of like this | | ) and placed the weight on the outside edges of my feet/pedals, hard acceleration speed wobbles disappeared entirely. When hard braking, the foot placement and weight distribution seemed to matter less, but I noticed the more I clamped my legs/calves on the wheel when braking, the less braking wobbles happened. I'm going to keep playing aro
