Hey guys, Currie actually sent me a throttle to plug in, but it ended up not working, since the control unit/LCD isn't programmed to accept it. So it was useless. I'm in conversation with some people...

Cycling Shoe and Pedal recommendations for my gravel bike

I ride a Diamondback Haanjo Trail, mostly on packed gravel, asphalt, and concrete, so nothing too rugged. I've been using the cheap Wellgo pedals along with my regular athletic shoes, but I'm ready...

They look great, but I still think the price difference between those and the 2016 aluminum models is too great. For the money, the aluminum Trail is the best bet IMO. I'm sure the pro-deal perk...

Based on other aluminum Trail owners' experiences, the rims are in fact tubeless ready. The other upgrades are nice-to-haves, but agreed, not likely worth the difference. Take away the $120 set of...

The Pro-deal on the new carbon trail is about $1,800, versus $1,100 for the 2016 aluminum model that I bought. I can't see how a carbon frame can be worth a $700 upgrade. Or is it? And that's the...

Incidentally, the shifters on this Century 2 are the ST-RS505, and the Haanjo Trail has the ST-RS685. What's the difference?

2. Any idea how much...

I'm 5'9.5", which is typically just in the middle of a 54 and a 56 for most bikes. I opted for the 53cm (Medium) Haanjo Trail, and while I don't have a lot of experience with frame sizing, I finished...

Any Diamondback Overdrive EXC owners out there?

I'm enjoying my one-week-old Diamondback Overdrive EXC, and am wondering if there are any other owners out there? Seems hard to find others who have D-back electric bikes.

Thanks for that. Well since I missed out on the 20% off sale at REI, I'm stuck paying $1,180 for the comp now, vs $1,380 for the Trail. It seems like the minimal upgrades are worth the extra $200,...

Thanks for the recommendation. I could probably come up with the money, but given that it will probably be a weekend-only bike, is it worth $1k more than the Diamondback Haanjo Comp? Will the resale...
