It seems that despite Halfords and SRSuntour’s best efforts owners are still suffering power cuts from this otherwise excellent bike. I have a fix for this, sadly it’s not permanent but it will reduce the cut out to a minor inconvenience.
On the rear of the bike (left hand side, by the rear wheel) there is a neoprene patch held in place with velcro, remove this patch to show a large barrel connector, this is the power supply to the motor on the rear wheel, disconnect and reconnect the barrel and reattach the neoprene. All done it takes less than a minute.
That’s it, it really is that simple, I do this and I’m good for another 50-75 miles before I get another power cut. Or you could do this before you set off and hopefully prevent a power cut.
Let me know if this works for you or if it’s still frustrating you, or if you’ve cured the problem completely let us all know how you did it.
One person (there are many more) who looked at my reviews bought the Crossfire-E and he rides it a hell of a lot more than I do, that person is Drewpyfz6, he’s just made a video of a commute and he’s achieved over 2,000 miles in 6 months. Not too shabby m8e 🙂
My last ride (yesterday) was 15 miles in 60 minutes (an average of exactly 15mph of course), and I loved it, and I’d only used 45% of the battery, so I’m getting a bit fitter, faster (my previous average was 13mph) and thanks to the new additions to my bike, comfier too.
I’ll get a video up of all my gadgets and toys for my bike pretty soon, but for now here’s Drewpyfz6 on a commute on his 2,000+ mile bike.
