User Review: Haibike xDuro NDURO PRO 2015 eBike
Great to hear feedback from our customers. This one in particular was so happy with his previous Haibike, he decided to take the plunge and go for a better equipped model.
Where it started?
A few weeks ago I decided to explore the idea of changing my Haibike pro to the latest version, why? I love my Haibike used it lots but found its 120mm travel a bit quick for me, I need 180mm….. and the new dashboard…. and the yellow wheels….. and the look… and and and (trying to convince myself)..
Thoughts so far on the rack
Now to the Haibike NDURO PRO itself
First the good
The not so great
The reaction of E-bikes with other cyclists – on one of my rides I saw a friend who used to be heavily into road racing, I put him on my bike explained the simple controls and off we went, he returned 10 minutes or so later with a smile that went from ear to ear, his words:
I could never see the point of E-bikes but now I have ridden one I get it
But of course E-bikes are cheating and not for keeping fit
He agreed so then I asked him why he was sweating and breathing heavily, to that he replied:
I’m knackered, was that the bike or me doing the work
I decided to keep him guessing…..
Advice to others
I guess the biggest issue and will probably only be an issue for me is the saddle.
Since I can remember I suffer with pain when riding so much that I can hardly sit for a few days after a ride, after trying everything from padded shorts to saddle position to new saddles I was convinced it was something I would have to live with.
Until I visited my local cycle shop to get another pair of shorts (more padding), I explained the problem and was given an explanation of the cause, I had my sitting bones measured and advised on a saddle to fit, £70 for a new saddle and I’m in saddle heaven no more pain.
A lot of words to get to my issue, when we pay thousands of pounds for a bike should we not as a routing ensure the saddle is a correct fit, I was unaware of saddle sizes and the importance as are most people that I cycle with (we are not club members and don’t have anyone to give us advice) just hoping that these few words may help someone avoid the years of pain that I have gone through.
Thanks so much to Pete for his kind words, written in his own time, it’s always great to hear real world feedback and it’s also nice for other to read in advance.
