    We have a huge number of unregistered visitors to the site every day and I'm curious to know how long you lurked for before deciding to hit the Register button?

    Also please tell us the reason why you decided to join?

    I lurked for quite a while well over a year ago as it seemed impossible to get approval, ......eventually I gave up until returning this year and bingo.....gremlins gone.......quick approval and the opportunity to get lots of much needed advice and opinions from lots of different people with obviously a lot more knowledge than I had......but as they say......learning every day......and you never STOP learning........
    Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far (especially our pedelec guru Flecc ) :)

    This is a great site

    I am a newbie and love my new e-bike but I also love this forum. People patiently answering questions that must have been asked many times before and for that, I thank you all.

    If ever I get a chance to help anyone go through the pre-purchase and purchase process, I will help when I feel confidently able to.

    God bless this forum and all who post in her.

    I admit now to doing both now days. I use two browsers, permanently logged in on IE, and never log in on Firefox.

    No doubt it’s because some people are frightened by beautiful, interesting women; whereas for my part I've got over that

    As you dont need to log in to read posts only to reply theres is a good chance most of those "guests" are registered users any way especially if they are using a public PC.

    I joined so I could seek advice on buying a pedelec. The advice was to try a few, I have and now am more confused.

    Thanks OldBob1,
    The one I felt was the best was the BH-Neo Jumper but I think old men of 70 should be looking at a Kalkhoff or similar fuddy fuddy type of bike. It was so tempting, like admiring the new blonde barmaid.
