    Problem with front of donor bike rattling

    Thanks Kwozzymodo - that's really good advice, despite your good description I'm so 'green' that I think I'd better get a pro to do it, but I'll mention what you said, including to check the bearings and races. Appreciated.

    Problem with front of donor bike rattling

    Thanks @Andy-Mat and @vfr400. It sounds like a Bike Repair Person job to me. I wouldn't know where to start!

    Hi, would anyone please know what's going wrong here? Something seems to be loose. I've posted a YouTube video link below. It's a Montague Urban I'm hoping to electrify. Thanks, Jonathan

    Help! 48v e bike battery help

    If it was marketed as located in the UK, you can cancel by letting them know you don't want it any longer and intend to get it back to them, and are entitled to a full refund when it gets back to them, including the shipping fee to get to you. What might be worthwhile is if you find out what...

    Conversion kits and battery

    They really don't all look the same, and there is much information to be had from photos. If you don't want to stick out your tongue for doctor, fine. If you don't think people here know anything useful, you're wrong, but fine. But please don't tell doctor that there's no point in sticking it...

    Ebike Crash!

    Wow. Glad you're OK. I would second Soundwave on approaching the dealer, warranty or no, simply in order to get an assessment of what's wrong, and a quote for the repair. You might want to shop around, for cost or expertise. Your insurer may say they require you to contact them within a short...

    Ebike driving licence in Israel

    Ah. Yes you're right that perhaps nobody can protect against a drink driver. In terms of irrational thought making it hard to achieve piece, Israel has been in the grip of right-wing parties since Peres. God willing that will change if Benny Gantz gets elected over the next week. But they do a...

    Ebike driving licence in Israel

    This is a shame because Israel is probably a great place to see by ebike. They have beautiful flat cycle paths all the way through the desert roads, created quickly apparently by unrolling long belts of some two-inch thick material probably made with recycled car tyres,next to the asphalt road...

    Scam scam scammity scam

    Yes that's right, partly I hear because lots of businesses there operate using loans from state controlled banks, which will never be paid back, so I imagine they can calculate profits without paying for their capital investment. Doesn't surprise me the scam has done the rounds before!

    Scam scam scammity scam

    With consumer law hat on I find it sad that there's apparently no way of alerting VISA etc about the seller in advance so they can revoke merchant privileges in advance.

    Hydrogen pedelec rental in Biarritz (hopefully)

    (after the G7). What's a shame I think is if I remember correctly Biarritz is pretty hilly so I'm not sure the 250w motors are going to last long. £7.5k bikes and all. https://greenfleet.net/news/13082019/hydrogen-bikes-available-journalists-g7-summit
