    New Light

    looking for a decent light for my S Cross. Already has a light fitted but in all honesty it's not very good. Today I was on the Monsal Trail and anyone who knows it knows there are several long tunnels, which although dimly lit are quite dark in parts. My light was not good enough. So I am...

    strange problem

    just a minor irritation. When I load the site I usually go to new posts . Just lately for some reason the 'Brexit' thread is not showing even when there have been posts. Is it something I have done to turn it off or is it a message telling me to keep away (lol)

Late on in year got caught out in heavy rain and was then not able to get out for a while. On using bike again I found...

    New Bike

    Been and bought myself an Oxygen S Cross ST from South Yorks E Bikes. Bought from them because I feel they will be there should any problems arise. Went for 1st ride yesterday 15miles around local trails and what a great bike it is. Found it very easy to pedal without power but when used was...

    sudden power loss

    out today on Freego Eagle when power suddenly cut out. Battery fully charged and was showing all lights. Luckily I was not too far from home. Wondered if it may be the brake cutout sticking but disconnecting did not make any difference. What can I do to try and find fault bearing in mind that I...

    winter tyres

    thinking of getting tyres for winter. Currently have Marathon Plus Tour which are fine for when it's fairly firm and dry but perhaps not the best for muddy trails which I will mainly be using. Would like to stick to puncture resistant. Any suggestions. gray

    brakes

    had my first ride for a few weeks today. Found that my front brake ( clarkes exo skeleton ) was virtually useless. Lever had to be fully pulled in to get any sort of effect and then not much. It was working fine last time I used it and has been stored in dry garage. No signs of any oil leakage...

    E bikes going forward

    Saw earlier this week that the Government is going to make a big investment into battery technology (allegedly). Than today announcement that all vehicles will be electric by 2040(won't affect me). Surely this is going to have a knock on impact regarding ebikes how they are used and how they are...
