    Ebike for tall rider with Nexus gears?

    Why front hub drive? Would you not consider crank drive ie shimano, Bosch, Yamaha or Brose? There are a few that use the Nexus 7 or 8 hub gear; maybe the Raleigh Motus might be what your looking for, it's large size frame should fit you nicely.

    Grown a Moustache!

    About 78 miles completed up to now over varied terrain from lanes to rough track and canal towpaths. First impressions are that this bike is really comfortable and capable over most surfaces. The wheels and tyre size copes well with tracks and uneven surfaces and is reassuring when suddenly...

    Riese and Muller

    Yes I,m sure you,ll think it's worth it as the miles go on, it's similar to buying a car, washing machine or dishwasher etc, they are all great when new but it's how they are functioning in 3 or 5 years time that really counts!

    We have two R and M Tinkers, yes R and M ebikes are more expensive than some other brands but they are particularly well made with quality components and good quality control during manufacture. This equates to a better ride experience and therefore may be thought of as being better value for...

    Struggling up hills

    The ebike will be better for the work commute though because you won't need to shower when you get there.
