This morning my bike got a big problem (hope not). I shot a short video about this.
You can see the chain is moving, but the wheel is not spinning. I hope i need only some adjustment for sturmey archer x-rd4 and this is not a breakdown.
At this moment both yellow lines are perfectly aligned but the problem is still here. So the sprocket wheel does not move smoothly, it looks like it’s jumping through several teeth or something like this.
I have the same problem with my new Halfbike 3 and only ride it 4 times, i have tried a lot of time the gear hub adjustement and align the yellow bars but still don't work.. i hope this is not hard to repair, i'm not really manual.
My halfbike had to be stored, so
a month ago I started to drive it and with only a week of use it presented the same failure. Is it a factory defect or why are there so many cases with the same problem? what is the solution?
Weird, same issue here. I sent the guys at Kolelinia a message using their contact form today – hopefully they'll be able to solve this problem for us. Now I wish I had a spare (Half)bike to use in the meantime... lol :)
@Jaime and @Chris - we received your requests and are already working on them. We don't want to keep you Halfbike deprived for too long and will do our best to help you solve the issue in a timely manner.
@Russ, could you please send us an email with your order id at email@example.com? I believe your case is now solved or am I wrong? :)
Wait...this is not just happening to me? I was so excited to get back on my bike after a few months off because of Covid and tonight it skipped on a gear shift and off the bike I went! Now it won’t go into gear.
I’ve been riding my half bike everyday for 2.5 months and I just experienced this issue yesterday. Hub seems to be binding and not engaging in any gear. I would like to know how to repair if possible. I have tried adjusting the shifter cable according to instructions but problem still persists. You guys have been very responsive with my recent orders so I hope you can come trough for me on this. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. I have had a bike shop attempt to adjust the gear shift cable and it did not have any affect. I have been told the Sturmey-Archer X-RD4 was never imported to US so parts are not available here. Please advise on next steps. I am desperate to get back on my bike.
Hello & good Morning,
When I drive my Halfbike uphill - a slight incline will suffice then there are very concerning noises coming from the gear shift / front wheel.
What can I do?
The Gear/chain will not hold and therefore I have to traction.
In other cases the gear doest seem to stick when I change gears. I always pause pedalling when changing gears.
Please help me.
Please help me, my halfbike3 have an issue on Internal Gear, the chain is moving, but the wheel is not spinning.
I have already brought to local mechanic but couldn't help, still get same issue.
Is there any solution?
