    Bosch battery key replacement

    Thankfully I found my spare key, which after spending an hour searching the loft I discovered it wan't in the loft, but in a kitchen cupboard!! Might try and get a spare cut, just to be safe.

    Bosch battery key replacement

    I'm sure I did, but will have to go hunting in the loft for it!! I just wondered if they were an item that could be easily ordered in by the bike shop if they still have my details from when I purchased the bike. If I find my spare, are they the type of key that places like Timpsons can copy/cut?

    Bosch battery key replacement

    Anyone know how easy/difficult it is to obtain a replacement key for removing the bosch battery from my Cube Race ebike? The bike repair shop may have lost it whilst my bike was in for repair, but they state I didn't leave the key with them, though I believe I did, but can't prove it. So I may...

    Bosch 503 Error

    Took the bike to a local Bosch approved bike shop and they have fitted a new speed sensor cable, and its now back to working great. Frustratingly they performed a software update (I'd forgotten to tell them not to) but thankfully this update still works with my Badass 3.4 dongle, happy days.

    2018 Bosch software version?

    Well thankfully some good news. Just picked up my Cube (with the latest update) and I'm pleased to say that my Badass dongle works fine, which surprised me. Apparently the battery has been optimised along with whatever else is included on the latest update. Anyone know what the latest update does?

    2018 Bosch software version?

    I did intend to tell them not to perform any update, but it slipped my mind at the time. They assure me it can be reverted back to what it was, but initially I'm going to see my Badass dongle works with the new update, but I expect it won't. As part of their checks they optimised the battery...

    2018 Bosch software version?

    Many thanks for that xena, got so used to riding with the Badass that I don't want to be without it now. Cheers.

    2018 Bosch software version?

    Thanks. The bike shop updated it without me knowing and I don't think my Badass dongle will now work, so Im asking them to revert it back to what it was, but they didn't make any note of which version it was originally,

    2018 Bosch software version?

    Anyone know what software version my 2018 Cube ebike would have had installed when I purchased it at end of 2017? Whilst my bike is in the local bike shop for repair, they have mistakenly performed a software update, and I want it reverting back to original. Just wondering what version it...

    Bosch speed sensor cable routing?

    The seat post hasn't been changed, I just removed it, inserted a length of metal tubing into the frame, and then dropped the seat post back in. The tubing sticks out and the seat post goes over the outside of it and slides down. The tubing is cut to just the right length for the seat post to go...

    Badass dongle with latest Bosch update?

    I have a 2018 Cube ebike with Bosch motor and I use a Badass dongle (version 3.4??). Whilst my bike is in the lbs they have updated the software as forgot to ask them not to. They have offered to revert it back for me. Does anyone know if my Badass will still work with the latest update, or will...

    Bosch speed sensor cable routing?

    Does anyone know if the Bosch speed sensor cable on my Cube Race 500 routes along the bottom of the seat post tube? In other words, if you were to remove the seat & post and shove a stick down there, would it come into contact with the cable? The reason I ask is my speed sensor cable has...

    Bosch high battery temperature?

    My 2018 Cube Reaction Race is at the lbs for fault diagnostics, and they report that it has had 115 battery charges and the battery has reached its highest temperature of 44 degrees which is unusually high. They suggested that it must have been left out in the sun, which it hasn't as its never...
