Thanks again for your feedback.The gearing is just right really, basing it on no dongle. No it is, I'm sorry if it looks like I'm trying to sell the bike but the low is really low and the high I guess stops being useful around 30 ish.. I did 36mph downhill once but I don't think that was it, just that that was as fast as I dared
Something I'd say against the nuvinci 380 but doesn't apply on an ebike is without the assistance it might get aggravating trying to tweak the gearing to be just right so much. It's not quite far enough between one extreme and the other to me. But, with power you don't need to worry about that as much
That’s fine, if I need more speed with gearing presumably I can use something from the HS nuvinci version.Well I meant 30 is like around where you can't move the pedals quick enough to be any use downhill so. I don't think 25 or near will be a problem though if you can get it going that fast.. To me, the 17.5 mph the motor will give restricted is enough. The bike costs a lot and I didn't want to have any worries about getting caught out even if that is unlikely
Chances are the HS version will be slightly higher geared.That’s fine, if I need more speed with gearing presumably I can use something from the HS nuvinci version.
Thanks, yes very excited!
Thanks for this.Chances are the HS version will be slightly higher geared.
Changing the gear range on a hub gear would usually be fairly simple - smaller cog on the back or bigger ring on the front - and a possible change of chain length.
Your situation is complicated by the belt, fewer belt-compatible cogs are available, but more importantly changing the length of the belt is not possible.
Money, as always, will solve the problem, the belt and cogs from a HS bike would fit yours.
Belts cost about £100, a lot compared to a chain, and no doubt the belt will be special order.
If the teeth are the same then the gearing must be the same.Thanks for this.
According to the RM website both the standard model and HS model both have a 26t chain ring and 28t pinion. I can’t see any difference on the specifications on the website.
The salesman thinks they’re the same too but I can’t imagine they would be geared the same would they?
great, glad to hear you're happy and will share here. Get your thumbs up to it and everything's perfect lolI picked mine up today and the gearing range is huge with the Nuvinci hub. Absolutely no need to change, it'll do 30mph with comfortable cadence if you can pedal it that hard but still be fine for very steep hills.
Only thing I don't like about it is that physically shifting it is giving me a blister on the inside of my thumb.
I'll do a review in case it helps others
