    Putting e-bike to bed for the duration of C-virus.

    Having last week just ordered and paid for a new R&M bike I’ll most miffed if I am prevented from riding it. Currently I can do an 18 mile ride without meeting anyone that are close. Usually on a horse or in a tractor. But as the Chinese say ‘May you live in interesting times’ seems we are.

    Another newbie question

    You could buy a good used one such as my Haibike, it’ll be going soon when my new machine arrived. Arthritis in my thumb makes gear changing painful, the only reason it’s going.

    Bosch Performance Line Motor Coming Apart

    I managed over 14,000 miles on my Delite without any problems. My current Haibike likewise so far but I agree not all Bosch stuff good. Some really poor compared to similar at the same price level. I have just ordered a new bike, again with a Bosch motor, R&M don’t do anything else. If there...

    Good, I like a result. I must remember that should I ever need it.

    Nyon Display backlight not working

    Possibly the internal battery is flat. Plug it in a usb point for a few days, it works wonders. If only it worked for me.

    Just received a penalty charge notice from London Transport

    I once had a parking ticket, I had overstayed my allotted time. But the ticket registration had the numbers 341 as 342 so I thought myself sound. But there was a car of the same make and colour with that registration in my locality and so I got it cancelled by taking my log book to show my...

    Haibike or Riese and Muller?

    As they are not the same type of bike they cannot be a compared directly. The Delite although having full suspension is a trekking bike, the Haibike is a downhill mountain bike. But in my opinion the Delite has more going for it, better attention to detail and engineering. I will never part...

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    Doesn't Orkney generate more electricity than it uses and sends the surplace to the mainland? Most of the cars there are now electric. If it can work for them why not for us?
