    18650 battery box for front light

    Finally found a 4x18650 battery holder for CREE front lights which doesn't fall apart. The cloth ones with sewn-on velcro straps for the 4-cell packs are absolutely useless - had the straps rip off 3 already and I don't use them much ! Battery pack holders falling apart just makes the lights...

    Puncture-proof tyres for mixed on/off-road bike

    I've finally decided to get a 'go-anywhere' (ish!) road bike for more flexibility this Summer - no electric mods (yet!) and going to see how I get on with it "unassisted" :eek:. It's easily up to a decent cross bike in terms of spec and design without being race-oriented and is hopefully going...

    Carbon Full-Sus E-bike

    Spotted this on a German website ... What's carefully not mentioned (aside from the price) is the motor/battery. Let's hazard a guess it's 250W Bosch mittelmotor with a 12Ah battery ? Would be a bit...

    S Pedelec with SRAM dual drive

    OK - thinking again and lost the plot of who is making what... what are the options for the above ? Preferably not a Bosch unless unavoidable. Decent battery capacity essential. Open to options on hybrid vs MTB.

    Decent track pump

    After far too long working 7 days a week 18+ hours a day (8 weeks straight) I'm finally back up and running after a lot of difficulties last year. Not been out on my bikes for ages until yesterday when after a decent night's sleep, I finally got on the Kalkhoff again. Was such a joy to be back...
