Stupid mistakes and solutions.

#1 Unread post by pchast » Fri Oct 04, 2019 10:23 pm

I've been looking at Electric Bikes for a while.... Please don't throw stones....
I've sat on a few. There was a left over 2019 DSR at a sale price.
I bought it! :roll:
The ones I sat on before I could flat foot.
I didn't get on this one before doing paperwork.
I can't now.
:shock:
Just the toes of my boots touch and the saddle is wider than the others.
The saddle can be altered. It has heavy foam in the sides that can be shaved.
That will help some. I will need to find information on how to lower it more.
:?
My stone driveway and the sloping roads at stops are a concern at this height.
For a lighter bike its top heavy.

Congratulations!
Anyone who will throw stones over an electric bike these days isn't paying attention. Properly outfitted, the new Zeros are very hard to find any fault with. Did you get any of the extended power options or the fast charger?

I'm sure there will be options for lowering, obviously I'd start with the dealer and move outward from there.
Let's see some pics!

Thanks!

Yea, the dealer is 115 miles away, in another state.. Its usable. Perhaps a local dealer
of another brand can lighten the shock preload and lower things a little.

I got no options at this time. Most of my riding in the past was less than 100 miles.
This will provide that. I've used it. its real nice.

I'm more uneasy with the height. Its my first New bike.
