    e scooters - a menace?

    While I was here updating my earlier thread, I thought it might be worth mentioning that I've had two "encounters" with e scooter riders in the last few months. These encounters were due to the e scooter rider not paying due care and attention on both occasions. The first was in a local off...

    Diagnostics on bike issue

    I've got to take my bike in to be looked at as there's clearly something not quite right with it, but thought I would ask on here as well, to see if anybody has any clue what it might be. Basically with every wheel revolution, the back wheel feels as though it's bumping on something. I've...

    New cycleways springing up - thoughts?

    Noticed that in quite a few towns now, sections of some main roads are being set aside for the exclusive use of cyclists, and I was just wondering what the more experienced cyclists on here thought about them. I'm personally not too sure. The lane is quite narrow, so I'd be worried about...

    Anybody got experience of "Juicy" e bikes?

    A colleague has recommended them to me, but I'm honestly not sure. There's such a massive choice out there, and I don't want to make a mistake. He's got a Juicy "ticket" apparently. Says it's great. I've had a look at their website but like any manufacturer they're always going to recommend...
