    Isle of Cumbrae electric bikes

    Myself and my wife have just cycled round the Isle of Cumbrae, her in her woosh Rambletta and me on my normal bike. Last time we done this was about 6 years ago.

    Hello again

    Hello everyone, it’s been nearly 11 years since I bought my first e-bike a trek fx + with the bionx system. It was a great bike but eventually the battery died and the cost was ridiculous for a replacement. Fortunately my knee had healed and I have been using normal bikes. But fast forward 11...

    Are Electric bikes any good or too good

    Ok guys, its time we had some hard evidence exactly what these levels of assist exactly mean. I know we can not compare the different systems as they assist in different way but we can compare assist levels to some level. A bit simplistic but say a level of assist of 30% should be the same as...
