    Mugged for your ebike by machette wielding motorcylists?

    A WD40 Aerosol clamped to the handlebars and a handy Lighter should do the trick . Deoderant sprays must also work as a kid set fire to himself the other day standing too near a candle .

    As Ted says , wash in Paraffin and dry followed by immersion in a tin of Linklyfe or the modern equivalent and hang from the nearest tree with the tin underneath to catch the surplus drips . The Kitchen was a bit smelly after . Reminded me of the dodge every 5000 miles with my Ariel Leader...

    Batribike Breeze - cuts out after a few minutes

    Could be just a faulty BMS . I had similar on my 2 year old Pro Rider Flare .

Jimmy returned the 40 Samsungs to me and they were as good as new . I keep them...

A lime green Voodoo Be bop and a Haibike from a 16 year old on a Canal Towpath . In addition a Police Raid on a house on Chepstow Road there found 59...

    How effective is "slime" at preventing punctures?

    Slime helps with punctures but it also causes problems with valves , even the pre-filled tubes . Usually on the ride following a tyre pressure check and inflation . If you use it carry some spare valves and a removal tool .
