you could make a pulley lift along the cieling of the stairway, so you can haul it up (and down). a simple single-loop pulley may not give you the strength to do it; the more pulleys the cable loops around, the more it multiplies the torque (and lowers the speed), just like gearing.

you could also mount a motorized rail either on the cieling or wall along the stairway, and let hte motor do the work.

or you could "ramp-ize" the part of the steps the tires would ride on, and setup a "stair walk" function on the bike's throttle or controller, so it will give you just enough power to negate the bike's mass to help you get it up the stairs. (won't help getting it down....)

Thanks !
There are nice ideas, but the problem is the stairs are quite narrow and curved. The rail option it is probably not possible but I will take a close check on that. But I will manage to do it I am 95kg and strong but the curve in the middle is making everything more complex. It will be a straight stair will be easy peasy... (The bike already has the walking button). I will probably against my will put under a close common garage (close by the door but without lock) in front of my house and convince my landlord to allow me to do a hole in the floor to put a ring where to lock my bike with a kryptonite lock.

Hi Shap08,

Based on other threads, I thought the largest chainring that would fit was 48T. Were you able to get the 52T on?

I already got the bike. Felt fast and amazing but it is heavy raining this weekends. I hope I can do my commute test next week. :)

Worst thing... My bike storage is in the basement where I though on putting my bike with very narrow stairs. This was not a problem with my 10kg mtb and with mine 7kgs roadbike. But this bike is really heavy even I dismount the battery every time I am going down.
Hi guel135 - How is it going with your new bike? I hope to receive mine around the beginning of May. I exchanged a couple of messages with Grace, she told me they just started production on my order. I cant wait... I want to be out riding this thing!

Does someone have any information on the GTMRK front suspension that comes with the base HT1000? For road use, is it reliable and durable? I couldn't find any information on it. The Rockshox Recon RL upgrade seems overkill for road use or is it worth the $115 upgrade cost? Any thoughts?

I took the recon upgrade only because it allows me to ride with 200mm front disc brakes. I really love the Magura brakes

My bike is just awesome but I only bike once to work with around 2 degrees and through the wet tarmac/path in the forest. But I was not riding due this cold and weather and now when I would really love to go bike to work... Coronavirus!!

Overall I did 52 kilometres and I was nearly killing the battery to 5% but I was really pushing in the ride. I need to say that cold conditions are not good for the battery and I hope with better weather and be a little more fit I can be faster.
I also arrange with my landlord to allow to park my bike in a closed garage where I will use a ground anchor to put fix it to the ground.
I can do it better for sure, with the road bike I already did 2:05... only 20min more. I will let you know when I left my working remotely (that I really like it)

I had trouble with mud and water coming up from the front wheel. Just upgraded my fenders.
