    Woosh XF07 Torque Sensing Kits

    I have recently purchased & fitted these kits, with 17 ah batteries to our bikes. Woosh were very helpful both before & after purchase, as there was a certain amount of difficulty with removing the epicyclic bottom brackets. This was resolved by purchasing new shells from Thorn bikes. The...

    Protection from Bad Weather

    Having recently installed two Woosh Mxus Front Hub torque sensor kits & purchased a towbar bike rack, I was wondering what additional measures are necessary to protect from heavy rain etc. I will be camping & on occasion taking the bikes several hundred miles on the bike rack. This has not...

    Halfords 48 hour test ride

    I borrowed a Carrera Crossfire E & was generally quite impressed. Tried it up the three steepest hills near me, two up onto the Chilterns. Required bottom gear & quite a bit of effort from me, heart rate 134, but climbed steadily at about 10 kph hills which are at least 10%. Battery range...

    First Ride of an Ebike

    I borrowed a friend's ebike today, but was very disappointed. You appeared to need to pedal to about 6 mph before assistance started & it did not appear to be very powerful. Admittedly it is a cheap bike from an EU supermarket. Rear hub motor & rear rack battery, 3 levels of assistance, but...

    Purchases from China

    Has anyone recently purchased motor kits from China? I am concerned at the cost of getting through UK Customs. Does the anti dumping levy apply to purchases of parts? I am thinking of purchasing two or three 2 speed front hub motors from Xiongda.

    Ordering a Xionda Motor

    When ordering a motor should one specify 36 volts or 48 volts? I aim to use a 48 volt battery. I have tried to find an answer to this on the forum, but most of the discussion is on over volting an existing motor. I want something that is legal, 15 mph is sufficient for me. I do want good...

    Cube Touring Hybrid 400 or a conversion?

    I am trying to decide between a cube touring hybrid 400 (approx £1500) & converting existing Thorn with Rolhof gears using Woosh XF07 front hub kit (approx £650 fitted). I am unsure how the two systems compare power wise for hill climbing. We do not at present have any difficulty on the flat...

    Front Hub Conversion

    What is the best legal front hub kit to get? My wife & I are both in our 70's, but reasonably fit. Can still do 35 miles in Oxfordshire, but some assistance on hills would be nice. I was thinking of getting the Woosh kit, but see that it now states it is 350w & not legal. Would Xiongda...
