    Beat Bike Toba Crossbar (Bike Log)

    Brakes need bleeding. They use a specific blend of oil manufactured by Magura which there is currently a massive shortage of (hearsay).

    Beat Bike Toba Crossbar (Bike Log)

    Looking for a new bike from now. I need a smaller frame, 5ft 8", and ideally, I want a local service facility as I'm getting old and shaky. Whoosh still in the frame if I can find a mechanic to service the bike, Shoreham near Brighton.

    Impulse 2 Charger

    An audio bang, flash and burning smell. Preceded by charging failure. Can't get it apart easily.

    Before I buy a replacement, what could cause an Impulse 2 Charger to go bang! Log: https://www.pedelecs.co.uk/forum/threads/beat-bike-toba-crossbar-bike-log.27632/page-5#post-558443

    Charger has just gone bang! Tempted to get a new bike. Any tips? 3200 miles only.

    Third ebike?

    Its the extra weight of ebikes rather than the path surface that makes them difficult to handle on rough terrain. I did not anticipate this which is why the Toba was wrong. Ref...

    Looking for first e-bike MTB

    Same use I'm looking for. Crossbar is useful for D-locks.

    I've got the Toba going again. Performance seems like it is on economy all the time.

    I had unwanted trouble with the Toba as the new wheel had to come from Germany and it took a month. Then it wasn't fixed properly, another week and stranded miles from nowhere. China design is a plus sign though.

    Third ebike?

    My current Toba is working OK for short trips, but I have never trusted it for long trips after a computer power failure miles from home. With winter approaching, I may wait a bit. PS: 50% off road use, good quality paths, but loose gravel. Roads are even worse though.

    Third ebike?

    On the shortlist. A bit worried about 700 wheels as the roads/paths found not be really good enough for my Toba. No road surface accidents, but one 20 mph blow out and another tricky situation where I got off and walked downhill. Cyclomatic with 26" wheels felt much safer and was a better ride...
