Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I find the horn quite annoying as I sometimes hit it by misstake on the trail. Not exactly what you want to do when trying to keep a low profile amongst the MTB crowd. Did anyone disable the horn? How did you go about it in that case? my suggestion: dont cut any wires. there are 2 wires on back of ...

Re: Crystalyte Controller - No Signal to Motor - Need Advice

Sometimes when it has three wire hookup for the brake, it's for brake with Hall sensors. That makes it to where just leaving them disconnected still keeps the motor from running...

Both their jobs well, the Park easily takes my roughly 100lbs bike while the Bike ...
