I am ordering a speed today.
« on: March 11, 2021, 09:38:31 PM »
I own an ebike now. It is mid engine and I have to replace the chain annually. No more!  It has a derailleur that needs maintenance. No more!  I had the chain come off going over a bump and got grease everywhere. No more!  I have to shift a lot and forget to downshift before stopping.  No more!

I am buying this bike more for the quality of the build than for the name. But it is still a Harley, my first.

Hi Frank! Welcome to the forum. Curious what ebike you currently have. It is surprising that you are burning through a chain every year.

Congrats on the Speed - I hope you enjoy it!

Congrats Frank on your purchase of the speed model.    Iím also wondering what e-bike burns through a chain a year.   That seems excessive but since I donít have an e-bike I wouldnít know.   Iím also stoked about these Serial 1 e-bikes it will be nice not worrying about adjusting derailleurs or oiling chains.  These are great builds.

I have a specialized como. I ride daily and live near mountains, which means full power mode uphill. Midengine drives chew thru chains generally. The belt drive is a must have for me, mostly for the low maintenance. And derailleurs are lighter and less expensive, but are another area of maintenance. Internal hub motors are way better.  I hope the Enviolo automatic lives up to its promise and becomes invisible while I ride.

I can't wait to hear how it goes because it sounds like you will be really putting your Serial 1 to the test.
