    Woosh Camino Tyre Change (update)

    They have been no bother since I fitted them. Just have a problem with squealing brakes, thought it would have stopped when fully bedded in. Would new pads do the trick?

    New to electric

    Hi all, brilliant forum, very informative. After a long period of not cycling after a major illness and some operations I have taken the plunge and purchased (well my wife has) a Woosh Camino. Was originally looking at a Decathlon crank motor bike which a friend has, but availability seems to...
