    Help! Buget ebike for a budget of €1500 for leisure cycling

    The 2 below, at £1299 are probably among the cheapest crank drive bikes available in the UK at present. Some may warn you off Plant X as a reliable supplier though. The Frappe 300 represents great value with a 500wh battery and Shimano Steps E6100 motor (60nM)...

    For upto £4k which ebike for red trails and maybe one day black?

    so if it's out of your hands, and they only have the one bike, why the dilemma over which one to choose?

    For upto £4k which ebike for red trails and maybe one day black?

    I think you both are missing the point, the bikes are different models, the H30 with a 500w powertube battery the H25 with a 625w powertube battery, the rest of the specs are identical

    For upto £4k which ebike for red trails and maybe one day black?

    For upto £4k which ebike for red trails and maybe one day black?

    That extra £300 is halfway to a spare powertube 500 battery, will keep the bike lighter and you'll have mega all day range with the spare ready in the car boot for mid day swap out

    Swapping a Cube Kathmandu for Cube Stereo or ORBEA Wild?

    The Cube looks great, like the Kiox display, navigation is a cool integration if you can get the trails uploaded to your phone and then onto the display. Is the 27.5 wheel size the best choice for downhill bikes nowadays ? The bigger battery on the cube would swing it for me too, 25% more than...

    Spent £2600 on the wrong bike?

    Thats a heavy bike at about 27kg, and the geometry wont lend itself to downhill/technical riding either. Keep the Kat and drop another £3.8k on below and at least you'll be able to use both batteries on both bikes for all day MTB'ing or long touring rides/ holidays...afterall, it's only money...

    Gear sensor - about to give up on it..

    Hi all, Thanks for your valuable feedback and advice. I think I'm gonna remove the sensor. Although I've enjoyed quiet and silky smooth gear changes this past week or so with it in place, I can't live with the drop off in power on every change. I have a new cassette and chain, and now with the...

    Gear sensor - about to give up on it..

    Hi all, Bought a gear sensor about a year ago, never bothered to fit it until last weekend, as I was getting increasingly worried about not running one on my Bafang BBS01 and the crunching and clanking on the cassette/chain/chainwheel when up shifting, especially on high assist levels (10 speed...

    First bicycle road accident tonight.

    Do you currently cycle? Do you currently have insurance? Are you referring to theft cover or liability insurance when you say its dangerous to not have insurance?
