I have just purchased the 2018 Emu Step through bike with the new colour screen. I am really enjoying it and it is handling the reasonably steep hills (one which is 12.5%) back from the station every night with ease. I just turn down the nexus gears to 1 and whack up the assist to 5 (there is no 6 in the 2018 version) and I sail up.

I have one issue. I am able easily to turn on the front and back lights by holding down the + button for 3 seconds. However, the display then fades, presumably on the assumption that I am riding the bike at night. This isn't always the case, as for safety sake I like to have the the lights on during the day as well. I wonder if there is any way of stopping the display fading, or do I have to go into the menu to turn up the brightness of the displat each time I use the lights
