    Brexit, for once some facts.

    This quoted main part of your post is excellent, perfectly summing up what a confidence trickster Boris Johnson is and has long been. But why can't you confine yourself to this quality and not descend into false assumptions and insults? .

    An expertise he has that is useless when trying to run anything. Hence how much he cost us in London and how we are still reversing what he did to put things right. .

    Help! SRAM p5 Rear hub for old giant twist/lafree

    The cargo hub does have a lower first gear as I mentioned before, so you will spin a bit faster for a given speed. That's to get heavy loads moving of course. As mentioned if you do find the gearing too low you'll need to change the sprocket. I absent mindedly mentioned a larger one...

    Help! SRAM p5 Rear hub for old giant twist/lafree

    Glad it fitted ok, I thought it would. I haven't come across this problem with gears one and two which probably use the epicyclics in compound mode, so potentially a little more drag. I'm guessing that is what you mean, very difficult to turn, but it shouldn't be severe though. I'd suggest...

    Worlds first self charging e-bike

    Absolutely. On my Nissan Leaf e-car the energy recovery is rather disappointing even in Eco mode despite its near one and half tons. But I do use the regen boosted Eco mode in all urban and suburban driving since the motor does all the routine braking, meaning the brake pads will almost last...

    bike laws

    Thanks for that information, they need to correct the photos on their website. However, the police are correct, with a fully acting throttle it is not a pedelec. The DfT have a concession for Great Britain only that it will be considered one if it has MSVA . With that you will not need...

    bike laws

    Yes, I noticed that, but it's definitely incorrect. The model 15 with pedals has a chance of being classified as a bike, but the 18 with no pedals has no chance. It is a moped in law. .

    Worlds first self charging e-bike

    BionX notably have for years had regenerating direct drive rear hub motors. They have four switched power levels and four switched regen levels, so the regen use and amounts are optional. Owners are split on the regen feature, some use it and say it's valuable, others say it's not worth...

    I don't see Farage in any cabinet post, he's a work avoider who's never done a day's real work in his life. PM yes , he'd take that and delegate to the cabinet all responsibility. .

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    Not true again, this you posted more than once was a lie: "You pretended to have seen the tv series". I have never pretended to have seen the series and you cannot show me where I have. My information on the drama came from accounts and video extracts only, as I've already posted to you. .

    Thanks, but it was never dangerous which is why I kept it on as it grew in very interesting ways over the years. It was caused by polonium 210, the substance that killed Alexander Livinenko, but that was because he took it internally. Externally its alpha particles are too large and too slow...

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    At no time did I say I'd seen the series or pretended to, so I didn't lie. There's so much information on it online and videos of parts, I didn't have to see the series to know of a number of errors. I know you aren't an idiot, haven't I posted a day or so ago that I considered you...

    That was as good as immediately in terms of that accident, please stop splitting hairs to get yourself off the hook. You know nothimg about that accident or what followed other than what you've seen in that drama, as you've shown only too clearly in your posts. I'm someone with a special...

    Brexit, for once some facts.

    There was a huge amount of help from a number of countries, the USA in particular with nuclear experts and numerous medics. And as I've just posted, it helped some 10,000 children to live. Hardly "didnt do much good". .

    They had massive help for years. The western medics alone were there long after treating the over 10,000 children who contracted thyroid cancer from the radioactive iodine 108 exposure, from that source almost unique to the under 21s. Fortunately almost always curable and only six of those...
