    Cheers. Yes it is a Bosch mid drive. Never had error codes. I have already discussed converting it to a grip-shift - at my expense, which seems a bit rough as the test ride was on a UA with a grip-shift!

    What concerns me is that Enviolo seem to think a new hub will fix the issue, guy at bike shop reckons it's not the hub but interface or servo.

    Also when I gave Enviolo the hub serial number they said "This isn't a Cargo hub, but I expect it to be a Trekking". So there are different versions? And UA fit the wrong type?

    anyone on here have experience of Enviolo Harmony gearing? My first Enviolo hub lasted 6 months before sounding like a bucket of metal parts. The replacement - 6 months on & it randomly changes cadence, especially noticeable going uphill. Mechanic where I bought it thinks it isn't the hub, Enviolo have offered (another) replacement hub. All taking weeks to sort out, so very annoying

    I think I'll be wandering aimlessly around the empty streets of London on Christmas morning. Who knows, I might even see other cyclists?

    Unfortunately I doubt I'll be on the cargo-bike as it's not very well & the bike-doctor doesn't seem to know how to fix it

    Had my first flat battery the other day. Not too many miles but very hilly & carrying full load. Got to within half a mile of home. The flat bits were ok but had to push it up the hills. Now I've become a bit paranoid - bit like PPP (post puncture paranoia)

    If you've got an hour to spare and you have an interest in infra, this is a good film. Nice cinematography too https://vimeo.com/pathmark/review/428222­393/f69754e83a
