    Pedalling, cadence, gears and assist levels

    For years I've been in the habit of pushing a big gear slowly, using the 21 gears as needed, rather than regular cadence and using the gears that way. I have read a little on cadence pedalling but never really learned it. So now I have 7speed rear block,3, 5 or 9 assist levels, currently 5...

    Silly mistake.

    Silly mistake I just made. Went to take the battery off, stuck my key in the charging socket. Oops, brief flash. What have I done, is there a fuse? Display won't power up. Charge lights on battery still work.

    Ready to go.

    Bbs01 arrived yesterday. I put the bar end handles back on to protect the display if I have to turn the bike over. Fitted bottle cage on seat tube with an extra rivnut. (I got a rivnut kit from amazon). Thanks to whoever suggested it, I put the spare wires in a sunglasses case, neat and tidy...

    Gear changing?

    I've got a Bbs01 on order and getting my head round it all. Mr woosh says I don't need the gear sensor. A couple of hints I've come across, that the gear sensor has a bit of delay, that blipping the brake can cut the power. So what's the craic, what's best?

    Hello from Littleborough Lancs

    Hi, Just joined this and other ebike fora. (there's the first thing to debate the plural of forum!) Got a Bbs01b 250w on order to fit my hybrid bike. I might also try it on my giraffe unicycle. (Not!) I do a mix of off road on local bridleways, canal towpath and roads, a few hills around here too.
