    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    Not a bad location to add another milestone. Also liking the new features (to me) on the Fitbit app.

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    Pretty much using it as usual. Higher gears + Eco and off on level stuff , Tour for slight inclines and then lower gears + Sport when on a steep climb with a press to Turbo when sport is not enough. Some of these hills must be close to 30°. I can’t see the downhill section when I reach the...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    Finally after 20 months I’ve gotten to use my bike on the roads I purchased it for. On day 3 I conquered the hill that crucified me on my non-e which had prompted me to search out ebikes , which led me to my purchase. Some of these roads require turbo to climb which I doubt I’d used in 1% of...

    Bike Insurance

    I'm in a low crime area and 5x. Mine is coming in at £87.16 for £3000 . No difference if excess is 50 or 200. Worldwide cover included , the exclusion on page 34 is for public liability.

    Good Reply. The trouble is getting parts! I have to say Bicycle Chain have been great and informative showing me options. They can't get a replacement upgraded hub until mid November , a replacement uprated wheel and hub was possible for October but it will need a different holder for either...

    Just coming up to 3000 miles. The forks have been squeaking for some time so with the next service I've booked some rockshock air replacements, the rear freewheel is also on its way out, the shop have rebuilt it as best as possible temporarily as typically these are impossible to source at the...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    1 week away from a year old and the Allroad is going as well as the day I bought it , now at 2200 miles. Recently had a service @ 2100 miles. According to the shop the chain and cassette are still in excellent condition, as I mainly ride roads with occasional light gravel track I was hoping...

    Action cameras

    I've ridden with a ghost-x for over 2 years , I clamp under my handle bars. Very easy to use , 5 hour battery, lens revolves to set horizon, wifi link so can download to your phone or use as a viewfinder. Buy SD card to suit your needs. Records in 1080p 30fps. Also has settings to work as a...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    1500 mile mark today. My purchase list is increasing as I’m out on the bike at least 4 times a week plus local errands. Winter jacket bought in the Aldi event : rainproof , light and very bright but cut a little short at the front if being picky , £15 so shouldn’t complain. After less...

    Giro Tyrant

    I have a 58 head and ordered the L as I found another giro helmet to be on the smaller side. Very good fit and ventilation, never been hot after a ride and can forget its on its so light. Only downside, if it can be called that , I have no2 clipped hair , the imprint of the cushion is embedded...

    Looking for a Handlebar or top tube bag

    I have one of these purchased from a well known marketplace. my Iphone11 fits inside with a case on it. I ordered the 6.1 inch screen size. My screen has a cover on it but I can still use the touchscreen through the plastic cover. It’s handy having a separate bag from the holder , very secure...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    So another purchase this week to go with the allroad. Bought direct from the Giro website at what I think is a bargain price of £95 delivered. It was a toss up between this Giro Tyrant and the Giro Camden. As someone who’s used their forehead as a brake in the past I was after a helmet that...

    Check that your rear brake holder is in line correctly, mine was slightly out of true on a ride and I could hear the skimming of a pad against the disc grooves. It might not have been tightened enough. Invest in a torque wrench like this one for general maintenance so you don’t overtighten...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    Having never used a kryptonite lock I can’t comment on comparison. I can say that the pitbulls are weighty and solid. I haven’t yet found a suitable mounting point for the holder so I either put it in my backpack or place it around the top frame and frame bag which helps hold it tightly in place...

    Cube Cross Hybrid Pro 625 AllRoad

    eMTB mode gives the rider an automatic change of assistance between tour and sport so you are not manually changing through the modes while cycling. More handy for mountain bikers with constantly changing terrain and gradients. My allroad has a Purion display so modes : off-eco-tour-sport-turbo...
