    New E-Bike up to 2.5k, looking for reliability and range

    We have the new Wisper Wayfarer with a 43v 700wh battery. Brilliant bikes, just done a 30 mile ride today, still over half battery left, build quality is actually pretty decent.

    Wisper Wayfarer H7 review

    New addition to our Wayfarer, I fitted this a couple of weeks ago over the Christmas period. It's a CycleChic front basket, my partner's been using the Wayfarer regularly for ride outs and she's very impressed with it.

    Hello again

    Ah well I can vouch for the Rambletta too, I bought one for myself last November! It's fantastic isn't it! I've changed a few things on mine, including adding some pannier bags for commuting, so we'll see how they fair, but you can't really fault the bike for the price. Good fun!

    how drivers see you based on the clothes you wear.

    I bought this bar end mirror from Chain reaction cycles for about £9 not thinking much of it. The view behind is wide and it stays in place on my commute. I was very sceptical about its size but it's really good.

    how drivers see you based on the clothes you wear.

    I ride motorbikes too, there's no reason you couldn't go into the shop and buy a lightweight armoured motorbike jacket with back, shoulder and elbow protection and wear that while cycling. In fact it's probably a good idea, downside is you'll get hot wearing it tho. Check out Helmet City, it's a...

    Help! Advice on Ebike for chronically ill human

    My Woosh Rambletta sounds like it would be worth recommending. It's a folding bike with 20" wheels, under £900 with a powerful rear hub motor and a throttle on the handlebar which once you start pedalling, can be used to take over the pedalling, i.e you can stop all pedalling and control the...

    Can you take the rambaletta on woodland trails

    If you have to then you could, but I wouldn't recommend anything more than regular gravel paths, the 20" wheels are not very stable and react very quickly to getting knocked about on un-pathed roads, so you will need quick reactions to catch a front wheel slip. Also the folding handlebars...

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    I don't think they're Kenda? My new Rambletta came with Chinese brand Chen Shin CST tyres? Same tread pattern as your photo so must be same tyre?

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    Yep it does make sense, just didn't want to double post in different places but here's my original reply regarding the Rambletta. I noted down some battery info on my Woosh Rambletta for anyone interested. Assisted speed limit. Mode 1 speed is up to 8mph Mode 2 speed is up to 12mph Mode 3...

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    Yes I've taken to riding in a lower mode and balancing the motor assist with the variable throttle to keep speed with my partner when we both ride out electric bikes as they are slightly different in their power assist. I did actually delete the post I wrote as I thought better to put it in my...

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    It could be the mudguards rubbing?

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    Tbh I can't tell if it's doing anything at all, it's sprung so hard, has little travel, and with the upright riding position it's kinda pointless imo. Much better is the suspension seat post. In time I'll look to buying a decent one as it's proven it's a worthwhile addition to the bike. I do...

    front basket for CARRERA Crosspath E 18

    https://www.tredz.co.uk/bike-baskets Plenty to choose from. We want a traditional looking wicker basket for the front of our Wisper Wayfarer.

    Seat post

    Great choice! I have much the same style of bike, a Woosh Rambletta. They're brilliant fun, I never thought I'd use the folding frame malarkey but it's already come in useful putting it in the boot of the car. Smaller wheels have pros and cons, they don't keep momentum as well as bigger wheels...

    New Woosh Rambletta Walk Around

    Worth giving Woosh a call, as I found there were a few incorrect bits of information on the Rambletta which I only found out speaking directly to Hatti when placing my order a few weeks ago. I weigh 14 stone plus my gear and rucksack, no worries on the bike handling that weight. And it's a...

    Battery 60-80%

    That's interesting to know, my 10 day old Woosh Rambletta has just had it's battery charged for the 3rd time since new, the measured voltage was 41.8v across the battery terminals so presume thats very good. In their manual for the bike it stated that the very first charge to leave the battery...

    My very first experience of riding an e bike - Rambletta

    Hi Pp100 As a reference, on my Rambletta, at the 8 o clock key position(if vertical is 12 o clock), the battery latch clicks and pops the battery up very slightly, about 1mm, then at the 10 o clock key position the battery pops out 6mm and can be removed from the frame. Turn the key as far...

    My very first experience of riding an e bike - Rambletta

    My Rambletta you turn the key clockwise and the battery will pop out a few mm's, turn key a bit more and you can then lift the battery out/away from the top of the frame like Woosh's video. If yours isn't popping out, try pushing the battery in as you turn the key to take any pressure off the...
