    Replacement key for battery …

    Thats why I said it, as YouTube has educated many crooks in how to get to your valuables via the front (and the back) door. Even when the door was double locked, electric Picks can get you in, in under a minute in most cases, though some experience, practice and knowledge are needed first. For...

    I didn't say "any Lock", I said opening a door......major difference! Andy

    Replacement key for battery …

    Two reasons why its immoral, nothing to do with "illegal", although the way some people have done the job, they have ended up behind bars or heavily fined:- 1) The huge amounts charged for very simple work, that we had to do as slowly as possible, making it look complicated to the customer and...

    Replacement key for battery …

    It is even better, especially as I understand FOUR KEYS ARE SUPPLIED WITH EACH BATTERY, to take FAR better care of the said battery keys..... On my batteries (2), I ONLY got two keys per battery! Still have both, and I have made two sets of keys for my bike, including the original alarm remote...

    Replacement key for battery …

    Don't forget to order and install a replacement lock with new keys! Plus, if you take the old one to a good DIY store, they may be able to supply a new replacement for very little money! regards Andy

    Replacement key for battery …

    Sad! If you eventually require some help with picking the lock, I should be able to assist. Or if you decide to drill it out, do not start without proper help, as it is easy to make it even worse, if you drill in the wrong place. Take a closeup of the key slot, with a clear picture on here, if...

    Help! Haibike sduro hard 7

    Some sooner than later it would seem! Andy I did just that, there are pitifully few cases of hub motors failing, and when one realises that hub motor e-bikes are about 75% of all e-bikes sold the last time I checked (I believe mainly due to the often massive price differences between hub & mid...

    Dangerous suspension seat post. Don't buy this!

    A good table showing the various "strengths" of the products. As I mentioned before, IMHO one should pick versions that are in some way rust proof, as I am a person who keeps bikes for a great many years generally, and so I look for that, with good success up to now! regards Andy PS. Beware of...

    Dangerous suspension seat post. Don't buy this!

    I noted for all, in this post only a few days ago, where to find a video showing all the different qualities and their markings. For metric bolts for car construction (here at least) are marked 8.8 (from memory), which is the lowest "strength" allowed. But the video appears to cover them all...

    Help! Haibike sduro hard 7

    I would bet you are the owner of a mid motor e-bike, and you have probably never ever owned a hub motor bike. Also I completely disagree with your assessment as well, with your "imagined" failures. Properly made frames do not snap as you describe under normal heavy usage. Where I live and ride...

    Dangerous suspension seat post. Don't buy this!

    A good idea, but it still does not shield you from a bolt breaking, unless you know the exact quality/type of bolt.....even then, poor qualty may still fail, and you get the steel enema..... 10n/m may or may not be OK...... For instance, if the bolt you have is of cheap Chinese quality, it may...

    Help! Haibike sduro hard 7

    Most mid motor e-bikes have a problem, as ALL the motor torque, and ALL the human Torque, pass through the same chain, putting a lot of stress on it. Only top quality chains will last better. Most chains were originally designed for normal push bikes, not e-bikes. Also, when the chain breaks...

    Punture

    On my last bike, which regularly got punctures, I eventually when replacing the tyres, I simply cut just the tread off a previous tyre, and inserted it between the inner tube and the tread. No more punctures.....a 100% fix that lasted till I gave the bike away some years later.... That's the...

    Batribike Trike 20 display issue

    What you should have done was to first remove the battery. Then open and dry out the display, sealing it up once dry. Then, assuming the controller is in the display, replace battery and try out the bike. If controller is not in the display, then open that up and get it dry as well before...

    I think that you have a good and valid point, but one that might be better addressed with a top quality bolt, which are cheaper and easier to repair. than the enema you mentioned. o_O :confused: OUCH!!! Regards Andy

    Error code

    I agree. My tip is to talk to a friendly lawyer, and get him to draft a letter, requiring imminent fix or money back. You may even be able to write such a letter yourself, and get it delivered with recorded delivery where the recipient must sign for it, a possible cheaper alternative, though...

    How awful, a possible serious accident and or damage to the nether regions, or both. My thoughts are low quality bolts out of the far east, but just guessing..... Having built a kit car in the early 1990s here in Germany, and having to abide by the requirements of the German TÜV (Pronounced...

    Filed down dropouts too much

    Easily done. My best offer, assuming the forks are steel, is to remove the forks (or remove all electronics from bike and take the rest of the bike) and take them/it to a welder, and get him to simply build up the areas that you have damaged, with carefully applied weld. Then file it carefully...

    Cracked Ali frame

    When the metal is lightly roughed up, and properly cleaned with Meths or similar, and then not touched with fingers, the bond is unbelievably strong, even when large temperature changes are experienced.. I have been using epoxy for metal, glass and other items, since I was in school, though it...
