Dispatches from The Daily Rider

Bosch E-Bike Service

The Daily Rider is a certified Bosch E-Bike Service provider. Our service staff are able to diagnose, repair, and replace all parts of a Bosch equipped bicycle. We regularly attend Bosch service seminars to keep us updated on the newest technologies and maintenance procedures. 

We have found that the Bosch system provides reliable assistance for thousands of maintenance-free miles. However, the Bosch system isn’t immune to environmental factors or wear issues. As a certified Bosch E-Bike Service provider, we also are able to offer software updates and set regular maintenance intervals on your e-bike. 

Bosch releases new software updates for their system quarterly. Bosch suggests that owners of these bikes refresh firmware yearly. We advise doing a yearly e-bike maintenance tune as part of regular maintenance. This way, we can clear any error codes, provide details about your riding performance, and suggest tips for getting the most out of your Bosch e-bike. 

Getting an error code on your Bosch e-bike? Give us a call or email to schedule your repair so that we can make a proper diagnosis. Or, drop by the shop any time we’re open. Most problems we have seen are the result of a faulty cable connection, or as a result of wear over time.

If your e-bike is in warranty, we are also an authorized service center to make replacements on a warranty basis. Labor charges for most warranty repairs will apply. We are able to obtain most parts within 48 hours of diagnosis.

Regular maintenance of your Bosch e-bike will extend its service life and may open up new features as updated software is released.

The Tern HSD

The Tern HSD P9 ($3,199)

We’ve been anticipating the arrival of the Tern HSD models in our shop ever since we rode them in August. This e-bike is a pocket rocket. With Suntour front suspension and Bosch Active Line motor, the ride is lively and comfortable. Our first ride was in the cul-de-sacs of sunny Los Angeles, where we kept circling in ever tighter turns, impressed with the performance and agility.

Cargo capability is built in with up to 132 pounds of capacity. With room for one passenger on the rear, this mini-GSD is a perfect city commuter. The 9 speed P9 version and internally geared s8i will be available in the shop mid-December of 2019. The S+ ($5,199) with auto-shifting Enviolo hub will come out in early 2020.

We cannot overstate how incredible the S+ model with automatic shifting is. Starting off from a stationary position, the bike shifts into a low ratio and adjusts to your pedal speed to maintain a fixed cadence. We played around with this setting to find a comfortable pace and did not need to change it when encountering hills or changing terrain. When paired with the Performance Line motor from Bosch, this bike astonished us with its smooth, steady application of power.

What makes a city embrace cycling? 

The Dutch consider cycling to be second nature. This film explores how it came to be and what happens when a city embraces cycling as a legitimate form of transportation.

We’re sponsoring a screening of “Why We Cycle” at the Northeast Branch of the DC Public Library from 1PM-3PM on December 14th, 2019. 

Film screening followed by a panel discussion.

Want to know more or participate in the panel? Let us know via email! We would love to have a variety of different panelists who can share their experiences with cycling in DC.
