    I use a golf sun visor which I've attached to my helmet with small cable ties. This has worked successfully for several years. It's not beautiful but I'm not bothered about appearances. Hope this helps. Jim

    How effective is "slime" at preventing punctures?

    As I have reported on a previous occasion, a slimed tube in my front wheel saved me from a 5 mile walk home as it was getting dark a few years ago. I had picked up a hawthorn cutting from a hedge. Slime can be used in Presta valves which have a removeable core. Hope this helps. Jim

    Riese and Müller Supercharger

    In case it's of interest to you, I have a Supercharger GX Rohloff, which I bought new from OnBike in March, 2018. I will be selling the bike in the next two or three weeks as I am awaiting the delivery of a new Supercharger 2, again from OnBike. The only reason for the change is that I have...

    If I gave these tyres do o need slime?

    I had Kenda tyres on my first ebike and had a few punctures. I had Schwalbe tyres with slimed tubes on my last bike and the slime worked well when I got a hawthorn puncture 5 miles from home as it was getting dark. I have Schwalbe Moto X slimed tubes on my current (and last!) ebike and so far so...

    Glad you're OK Neal. Deplorable reaction by onlookers and, even worse, by police! Jim

    I wonder if the misspelling in "PeddleSMART" is intentional :( Jim

    eMTB owners photo and ride thread.

    Superb photos! I've walked up there (long time ago) but I doubt if I could get up there on my R&M Supercharger. Jim

    Panasonic compact rear hub motor.

    I'm sure it will be compatible. I had an E-Style P and considered buying the 562Wh battery. I was advised by my dealer that the batteries were interchangeable, the problem (at that time - some years ago) would be obtaining the 562 Wh battery. I eventually bought the E-StreetP. Hope this helps. Jim

    Real Bicycle Bells

    I remember paying 4/6 (4 shillings and sixpence), (22.5 pence) per gallon for "premium" petrol in the early '60s and thinking that was expensive! Flecc will be along in a minute with an even lower price :) Mind you my weekly wage at that time was less than £9.00. Jim

    Battery charging

    Hi Phil, I've just taken my 2 Bosch Powertube batteries off charge. They were charging for about 2 hours using what looks like the same charger you have. As usual the charger was warm but couldn't be described as hot. Jim
