    Ok thanks for clarifying that. I would be using an emtb at trail centres quite a lot so probably best avoid a bike like this. I have heard a few grumbles at trail centres recently when using my analogue bike from folks who would rather emtbs were not allowed . So it’s one thing removing the...

    If they are still evolving that’s a pity and maybe we are paying for the research and development. Having looked at the prospect of fitting a crank drive kit to my Full sus bike ,I don’t think it’s an option because the motor is in a very vulnerable position

    Well Woosh that’s something for me to think about considering I already have a full sus non ebike that I don’t use any more. The reason I don’t use it is because it’s a 26er and I changed to a 650b a couple of years ago. And Soundwave thanks for that info . Interesting and kind of highlights...

    Thanks for the replies I understand the importance of using a local dealer . Local to me are Haibike Specialised Giant and Orbea So quite a choice really . I like the idea of the tried and tested Yamaha and Bosch. The specialised models appear very popular despite a lot of issues , but maybe...

    Oh well Never mind Another obstacle, Ha ha On the plus side I have been playing about with both my folding bikes to see which I prefer in readiness for conversion and have discovered that they are both not too bad as they are. I’m not saying that I won’t bother converting them , just that I...
