Finally got the beta from the display figured out today. You have to press the +i- buttons at the same time at startup and toggle the i.
Looks like the controller is 15A x 52v = 780 or about a hundred more hot off the charger. Seeing as how I was only using eco and tour leaving sport and turbo alone and have been going as fast as I want it seems ok. Eco in tight single track is all I need and it will even climb a steep section at that. But if you kick it up to tour for steep climbs it does the job better. All with active pedaling. Anyway there were some other things to do but I didn't get a chance to really deal with it today.
Big surprise was the bike weighs 20.3kg (44.75lbs) ready to ride, and dirty. There is a lot of hub bub about the new Pivot Shuttle weighing 44lbs and how it is setting the standard for light weight.....ha.
And I quote:
Shuttle - Pivot Cycles | Pivot Cycles | Performance Redefined
Available only in Europe/UK. Pivot Shuttle – go further, ride harder, and conquer the toughest technical challenges with Pivot's revolutionary eMTB. At 19.95kg ( 44lbs) for a complete bike, the full carbon Shuttle sets a new benchmark for light weight,"
Granted that is FS compared to my HT but my FS bike weighs even less than my hardtail as it is aluminum and the Qbota is steel so adding the same system to it should actually be about the same.
But it really depends on how you want to perform on a bike. Those that want to go as fast as possible on the DH and catch lots of air would probably benefit from spending the extra 8 grand or so but I have been riding mtb's for a long time and at this stage of life I feel like if I am on my mtb I am in no hurry to fly, go fast or fall off and a more XC oriented bike is just fine. But I do like the challenge of a good climb, and that is where the motor comes in, and low psi in the tires!
