    chain help

    I agree with Raboa, looking at the pictures it looks like a single speed. If you buy any multi speed chain like 7/8/9 speed etc it will be a so called "3/32" chain, yours could be a 1/8th wide single speed chain so the best way is to take the chain off and then any bike shop can identify it and...

    Erider model 15 brakes

    Looking at pictures of the model 15 the front looks like you just turn the adjusting screw at the end of the cable, if all the adjustment is taken up maybe the pads are too worn, can't see the back wheel. they have a dedicated forum which may help https://eriderbikes.com/forum/

    Cube Kathmandu Hybrid One 500 or Giant Fathom E+ 2?

    I have a Cube Hybrid and find it a great bike, powerful CX motor, very practical lights/mudguards/carrier. perfect for a commute in Sheffield with all the hills if that is where your commuting area is ? My Cube is okay for trail riding too. The Giant looks more mountain bike and would need a...

    Is this a good buy ?

    I think the question is more like what else new can I get for 550 quid, in the UK nothing worth buying. Don't worry about it being Chinese, they all are If you need a bike to commute 15k which folds it will do the job. the points I would address are, do i like riding the bike ? does it fold...

    Help! Thought choosing would be easy but...

    If you live in Edinburgh and you have access to dealers and backup etc, get a crank drive with a motor capable of 70nm plus. Any of the well known makes will eat the hills around Edinburgh and beyond. Specialized. Trek, Cube, Giant etc, biggest problem will be finding something to buy.

    Oxydrive battery replacement

    I considered this but I believe the battery case/rail have the controller installed in them so you would have to fit a different battery and then a controller downstream.

    Oxydrive battery replacement

    I know he doesn't do the kits anymore but I think he has odds and sods laying around that he may sell. Worth a try

    Help! Buying online help

    I think the Moscow Plus would be a good solution. Its in budget, legal so you will probably qualify for the ride to work scheme. Personally one of my early builds was a das kit rear hub and it performed really well, I suspect it was a Bafang motor. I also this year met a guy on the trails where...

    Help! Buying online help

    Dave you will have to accept a few hard facts, you won't get a legal e bike from a dealer in the UK that will go up hills at 20mph. I doubt you would get an Illegal one from a dealer either. It would be difficult to build a kit e bike that will go up hills at 20mph. I have a 48v 500w Bafang kit...

    Is there a better option than a Cube Reaction Hybrid?

    the problem with a LBS they can't do much/anything to fix your Cube if its the motor or the battery that goes wrong unless they are a Bosch dealer. I bought my Cube online but i have a Cube/Bosch dealer near me who couldn't supply a bike but will help me out with warranty claims. the best thing...

    Is there a better option than a Cube Reaction Hybrid?

    Thought I would weigh in with my Cube experience again Jack. I had commented on your original Cube 2022 post. Anyway my Cube is a year old and I was passing my LBS but not where I bought my Cube,which i bought online due to availability issues. I went in to ask about yearly services but said I...

    Cube 2022 e-bikes

    I'm the same age as you and ride a Cube Cross hybrid pro, mine is a 2020 which I was lucky to secure at the start of lockdown last year. Anyway mine has a Gen 4 motor with 75nm which is fine for me but the LBS has said I can get it uprated to 85nm if I want, maybe that option is available for...

    4th Wisper on order, what to do with the old ones…

    Nealh is spot on here, scrapping them would be wasteful. Because e bikes are in very short supply and they are a pair suitable for a couple getting into e biking I am sure you would sell them easily depending on your location. Start a thread with a couple of pics and a desc to ascertain a forum...

    Don't drag me into your personal vendetta with members. I have never felt anyone on this forum was ganging up on me. Some members have strong opinions on Bosch mid drives and they are perfectly entitled to them. It doesn,t offend me if they disagree with my views and Nealh in particular has been...

    Solo elderly tourer

    I think we need to hear from the OP as to what he is looking for, if he has mech/elec know how and enjoys tinkering by all means fit a kit. If not buy a off the shelf model (assuming he can find anything these days with covid) If all I cared about was riding and didn't want to stress my heart I...

    From what you say about age and heart disease buy one of the modern trekking crank drive e bikes. Buy the biggest battery you can get, probably a 625w. That will give you plenty of power to keep the strain off your heart. Unless you are passionately interested in mucking about with bikes skip...
