    Locks

    A dlock but honestly it's best not to leave it out in public at all, bike thieves are robbing parts of the bike if they can't take the whole bike. They are rampant and will take any not locked down.

    Folding lightweight multi-terrain e-bike for under £1000? Am I hoping for too much for my money?

    Take a look on ebay, I managed to get a 2nd hand kudos secret for £120 normally priced 800, the steering and the brakes were dodgy, that's all. I saw one going for £200 last week the seller had no battery keys though.

    Halfords Bike Service

    I was going to get my bike fixed at Halfords last week, then I read a ton of bad comments about them in a FB group and decided not to. A lot of similar stories to yours.

    What do you do to prevent theft of your e-bikes/battery?

    Making it look second hand is not a deterrent neither is the dlock really they still nick parts off it. Happened to me twice with a crap 30 quid mountain bike and a 200 quid one, where they stole the forks and the handlebars and the disc brakes.

    Donor bike + Woosh kit advice pls

    I wouldn't mind bringing the bike down to Southend once I get it, how much do you charge to fit a kit?

    Donor bike + Woosh kit advice pls

    With something like that I'd have to pay over a grand all at once, which I can't do any time soon. If I get a donor I can ride that around for a while until I'm ready to convert. Plus a converted donor just feels more individualis tic and personal.

    Donor bike + Woosh kit advice pls

    I need some advice on which Woosh kit to buy and a donor bike to suit it. I would use the bikes for longer trips, e.g Central London to Windsor, South Downs. I can spend upto 300 or 400 on the donor bike. I want a mountain bike with disc brakes, should they be hydraulic or mechanical?I'd like...

    Risk of getting your bike stolen in London?

    But like I said he used an old chain lock, there will always be opportunists around no matter where you go. To good locks would have made it a lot harder to steal.

    Risk of getting your bike stolen in London?

    He just used a old chain lock though, use two quality dlocks then it becomes a lot harder to steal.

    Risk of getting your bike stolen in London?

    Worse than that, even if it doesn't look nice it can still get stolen. I locked up a old trek bike outside my house, it had a ruined cassette, no chain, torn up seat and I already removed the break blocks that day. I locked the wheels but forgot to lock the frame. Next morning frame was gone...

    Kudos secret review

    OK. ..things didn't work out, attaching some pics. I'm thinking is it possible that the screw has broken without me realising.

    Kudos secret review

    Well I'm guessing its gone down because the screw no longer seems long enough, I think I would be able to fix it easily if it wasn't for that. I should be able to fix it with the very same screw.

    Kudos secret review

    Any idea of how I could do my own repair? Knowledge is power and all that. What seems to have happened is the forks have gone down. The headset screw with attaches to the forks can't reach the forks with the little disk attached, thus the handlebars can't be attached.

    Kudos secret review

    I managed to get the secret second hand for a very good price. It had a few things wrong with it, namely the brakes and some wonky handlebars that I managed to fix. The secret was a lot a chunkier than I expected, even though I bought it with a view to taking it with me on my travels abroad, I...

    Every single day I see people riding escooters in London, with no police to be seen anywhere, they are increasing in popularity every day.
