    Chain tensioner hub gear question (for Flecc)

    Hi Flecc Cannot locate your great Panasonic guide which has the ideal distance between centres on the motor and the chain tensioner wheel. Also, 50cycles have sent me a spring which is larger than the original and the ends finish in the same plane as the spring, instead of being both ends...

    Is Kalkhoff losing brand quality in pursuit of development?

    At the risk of being a neanderthal or luddite........ With battery problems and now motor problems I start to believe Kalkhoff have taken their eye of the ball, with the latest breeds poorer that the original panasonic powered units. Having supposedly "upgraded" (i use the term reservedly) my...

    16 tooth Sprocket on Nexus hub

    Hi all, Just got Mrs 'O' a new Kalkhoff Tasman, which comes fitted with a 21 tooth sprocket and 38 tooth chain ring which gives her low gears she'll probably not use, and it would be better to have some higher gears to allow input at speeds over about 18mph e.g. When she's downhill with a...

    Chain for Kalkhoff ProConnect

    Having trouble sourcing new chain for 2008 ProConnect. Replaced chain in 2010, when I also bought a new 41T chainring as well but never used. 50cycles sent me recently a 132 link KMC chain, but it must be 3/32 not 1/8 as it rides up in the chainring, both the old and new one, and teeth do not...

    Changing headset on Kalkhoff Pro Connect

    My wife's step through Pro Connect (2008) has developed 'indexing' of the headset after some 9,000 miles, such that there is a subtle resistance/preference to fix the steering at straight ahead. I assume to fix it, it will need new cartridge headset bearings. My question is does anyone have...

    Problem with Kalkhoff ProConnect handlebar display

    Hi My handlebar controller on a 2010 Kalkhoff ProConnect S had recently developed a fault. The full capacity battery indicator light blinks/goes out intermittently (e.g. When turning handlebars and flexing the cable harness) when the battery has a full charge. I've think the fault lies with a...
