Haibike Urban, Race, Superrace Fork Recall



Product recall of all Haibike XDURO Race, Superrace and Urban models 

Schweinfurt, 14th February 2017 – Product recall at Haibike: XDURO Race, Superrace and Urban models were sold on the market featuring forks which exhibit rather unstable material. This might result in premature rupture and may ultimately lead to a fork break. This poses an enormous safety and injury risk for every user. Thus, the lower Franconian bicycle manufacturer decided to perform this recall. Affected are the following models of different model years: -

Haibike XDURO Urban (model year 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Urban RC (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Race (MYs 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Superrace (MYs 2014, 2015) - Haibike XDURO Race S RX (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Race S PRO (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Urban S RX (MY 2016) - Haibike XDURO Urban S PRO (MY 2016)

„The safety of our eBikes and their riders has highest priority for us. Therefore, we perform extensive endurance tests at external testing institutes. Some of our testing criteria are significantly above the DIN, ISO or EN norm standards”, explains Susanne Puello, managing director of Winora Group. “Latest findings from these tests caused us to perform this recall.“ Haibike USA |



Identifying the problem: The forks used in our Haibike Race, Superrace and Urban models might show premature breaking when being exposed to above-standard endurance tests. Therefore, the fork may suffer from rupture or a break. A manufacturing error cannot be excluded up to now. Due to safety reasons, the affected eBikes must be taken out of order immediately. This measure comprises 1765 vehicles in total

How is this recall performed?

All dealers were and will be informed about the situation via letter and will receive an extensive information guideline that will explain the reasons, as well as the further recall action step by step. Additionally, we will create a special dealer and end consumer area on our homepage www.haibike.com/recall/us. “With our measures, we will ensure a fast and smooth processing of this recall“, confirms Susanne Puello.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
