    more of this please

    My family and I were holidaying in the Gower area last week and stayed in Swansea. We walked the length and back from the marina to Mumbles on this path. I made a point of telling my kids to keep to the pedestrian bit, but saw plenty of others who didn't meaning bikes had to stop,swerve etc...

    Yosepower hub kits.

    My Yosepower (350w rear) gives me a slight vibration through the frame, I think they are all like that. Dunno if there's a way of isolating the vibration in any way.. I switched to a KT-D12L pas sensor too from topbikekit, much easier to fit to existing bottom bracket, no issues with mine, and...

    Orbea Gain lost spokes

    Must of swapped out about 15 spokes on 2 carrera crossfire-e bikes in the last 3 years. Measured the broken one, ordered 6 at a time from tiller cycles, swapped out, tightened up, check wheel is true, on my way. Even done at the roadside on a day ride, not tricky, I have no wheel building skills...

    UK E-bike laws about to change or fake news?

    Yes, I think it was the same guy in Halfords who said that to me, just after he built up my new Gtech escent bike (pic below)...I think he know his stuff

    Halfords are truly shocking!

    I was in my local Halfords yesterday, and there was a Carrera mountain bike ready built and on display for sale with the forks facing the wrong way like the OP's, so it's not a one off....I'm kinda looking out for it now lol

    Looks good Woosh, pack another 17ah battery in the rack bag and that would make a great pan Europe tourer.

    Halfords are truly shocking!

    To be honest, this shocking setup should (and hopefully) would shame any Halfords store manager, I can't believe this sort of shoddy work is widespread across Halfords, they do have a structured training progression system in place. However, the individual who built the bike should be ashamed or...

    Halfords are truly shocking!

    No points for you lol... I think you meant they have the forks 180 degrees out when the tightened up the handlebar stem

    Help! Upgraded battery for Carrera Vengeance e bike

    I think your Vengence battery is about 8.8 ah, so you'll get about 30% extra range, certainly not double. I'm always on the lookout for a cheap seller of a Phylion SF-06 cased battery, so if you find one be sure to post back here. I think Greenway put these on their bikes
