comment Choosing an e-bike for commuting
@ChrisH - The question was specific to Vancouver and the Lower Mainland. All buses in the area have a bike rack on the front capable of carrying two bikes. The lack of such facilities in the UK I found out the hard way when touring. A jammed wheel bearing left me stranded. I had to carry everything by foot!

comment Choosing an e-bike for commuting
@ChrisH - A couple extra kilometers over google maps as I prefer safer and more pleasant routes. Regenerative breaking will only add a slight top-up it won't add a huge change. Finally, the bus up can work, but you may have to wait for a free spot as each bus can only hold two bikes. On the Hastings side there is usually enough buses coming through that you won't likely have to wait too long.

comment Shimano 105 Adjustment
Is this a new frame or used frame. If the latter have you checked that the derailleur hanger is straight? Typically you will need a specialized tool. With the modern drivetrains this can cause a lot of problems.

comment How to prevent freehub body damage?
@FredtheMagicWonderDog - Are these sold by velocity or is it another brand compatible with a Velocity hub? A link would be great as I may have to replace mine if it gets worse. Thanks!

@Mσᶎ - I have summarized some of the key findings. The flavour of the overall answer however remains the same.

@Moz - downvotes should not be used to voice personal grievances. Perhaps you can clarify in the comment section why you consider my answer to be poor so that all may benefit. Also until you closed the question you could have provided your own answer.

@Moz - Except I would argue the provided answer for Selecting the right crank length is misinformed and misleading. I also added a link back to this question for clarification.
