    This is even more true for the Bianchi and Pinarello I tested. They have 40nm max torque making them feel very sluggish on the climbs in comparison to the Giant. But at only 12Kg they handle and feel much more like non e-bikes which for me translated into easier rolling on the flats (unlike the Giant which turns into a bit of a ball and chain when the motor cuts out on the flats). So it's a tough call. Best to try them all on a good hill, a winding decent and a long flat.

    I had 46% left, this 2019 pro motor uses more battery than my earlier 2017 bike as I could get best part 100 miles a charge on it.

    You could send it to giant, so they can fix the control screen misting up.
    It only needs a drop of water

    Took the Bike back in Sunday to shop with creeking & knocking noises.
    The head stock, crank & rear end have different tones.
    It is like riding with a 3 peice band on board, so much for a quiet ride.
    Dealer is having talks with giant so not sure yet what the cause.

    Sorry to put the jinx on you. From the looks of it you two were having some good rides. With any luck all she needs is a shot of grease here and there and torquing down a few bolts.

    Got the bike back today,
    1- The headstock had come loose so greased up & torqued up
    2- The crank bolts had come loose
    3- Rear wheel bearing loose
    4- Evo screen replaced under warranty (misting up)
    5- A chain link snapped replaced under warranty
    Maybe due to not having first service done earlier?.
    Hopefully all will be good again

    Well since getting my bike back I took it for a short 20 mile run & it creaked & knocked the whole time.
    It’s been back at the shop this week & they think there is a problem with the motor, it’s double engaging on take off & knocking while riding.
    We are both in agreement that I’m not having this bike repaired or replaced as too much has gone on the last 2 years.
    There speaking to giant now to refund my money & return the bike.
    We have talked of me trying a full carbon lightweight bike & see how I like it but really I just like to go out & enjoy my ride up steep hills around the area.
    So hopefully a cube hybrid will be on my list

    What a diabolical run of bad luck, @Giantbadge - how many failed bikes was that?

    This was the 5th, I have missed the last 2 summers so enough is enough.

    Are you getting a different ebike or dropping them altogether.....the giant fastroad e+ does look good or there’s the Cannondale neo

    I’m going to try the cube c62 hybrid, with a Fazua motor. Just awaiting refund on the giant.
