We have tried it, now the EU whats to change the rules and the rules don't suit us (as a democratic country), so we should leave.
I cannot believe the BS propaganda I have to watch every time the news comes on, the remain group getting 20 minutes air time while the leave get less than 5 minutes...
Have you checked out the powacycle website?
They appear to have a page listing replacement batteries.
E-BikesDirect seem to list batteries, personally never bought from them...
Just did a quick search on the Internet and found a site that suggested the ideal crank size for someone my height (5ft 8inch) is 167.5mm to 170mm.
Having a normal body length but short legs, I have difficulty setting the seat height to the optimum height, so I have to compromise by...
Had a successful test of my new battery today, cycled 9 miles with no power cut-outs and I still had power in the battery when I got home. Admittedly, I could have gone further but my legs are a bit weak at cycling at moment, as I have not cycled for well over 18 months. Hopefully, now I have a...
My new bottle battery arrived yesterday, so today I set to work fitting it to my electric bike.
I opted to fit the battery behind the seat, as it was before.
Clearance is tight, so I have had to remove the original rear battery rail, as it was taking up valuable space needed for getting the new...
Tested my electric bike today, on a circular route of 2.5 miles, twice.
Unfortunately, on the second trip the pulsing started at about 1/2 mile from home. So for some unknown reason I have a range limit of about 4.5 miles. Battery was reading 37.7 volts when I got home.
I hate to admit it but...
Tested my electric bike at a slightly greater distance last Sunday but I had some problems with "pulsing" power. It started after about 2 miles out. The entire trip was only 6 miles (in total) but the last 2 miles were a nightmare, I was down to a crawl, I even had to change right down to first...
Managed to test out my new SLA 9Ahr battery today.
Nothing serious, just a short (close to home) run.
Rode it (gently) into town and back (2 mile round trip), handled the steep hills without a hitch.
I am still able to ride it on the flat without power, pleased about that, as I had a worry the...
It seems there are a number of 48v batteries about these days, 36v used to be the tops a few year ago, technology dose not stand still.
Rebuilding my battery has rekindled my interest in E-bikes generally and yesterday I found a nicely priced 36v bottle battery.
My kit e-bike has never had a...
Before I comment, let me say I have been out of the electric bike circuit for a few years, so I am not up to speed on modern advances.
I have an old (9 year old) heavy MTB electric bike.
I also have a second electric bike, which is a kit on my 30 year old mountain bike but it has never left the...
Hi Flecc, Thanks for the welcome back ;)
I had a quick look but couldn't find a Gallery, possibly not looking hard enough.
Is there a thread for showing off ones pride and joy?
If not then here is a picture of my Cougar Mountain Electric Bike.
I am aware the seat post it now very close to the...
Hi all, just dropped in to say hello.
Been a good while since I posted or visited the forum.
My electric bike battery died a few years ago and with a replacement costing several hundred pounds I just couldn't justify the high cost for leisure cycling, so the bike has been shed bound and...
I have not been active on here for a long time, sadly, not been cycling much either.
I decided the other day to use my Couger MTB e-bike.
Originally it was powered by a 36v SLA battery but I had a li-po4 battery made for it., it's only used for leisure riding.
I attempted to charge the battery...
I've added my name to the petition.
I've never been on the Ryde but I once went on the Waverley.
It was my Dad's idea to go and he sprung it on me.
It was the first time I had ever gone out to sea at night on a boat. Could hardly feel any sway at all.
I can still remember the coloured shore...
Just added my vote (45-50).
But to be to the point I've had my electric bike for just over 2 1/2 years so I was actualy an ebiker at 44 :)

when i used to ride a standard bike i would normaly ride an average of 20mph.

From what I have seen of American cops on TV they seem to be all pussies, always eager to pull their guns; like when people throw snowballs at their cars :eek:
Their other favourite tools seems to be using their taser on everything that moves; including totally stupefied drunks.
In the last three days we have used almost all our grit/salt reserves (£200 worth) and spent 4hrs a day shovelling snow, so visitors and staff can stay perpendicular around the site .... this is something that would be really useful at our school :confused:
Ace new e-bikes
Zero road tax
Low charging costs - £0.004p per mile (for me) :D
And for those who still cling to the automobile :(
More new 'green' legislation (anti-car)
Petrol price rises
More speed cameras :eek:
I can't seem to find a helmet that fits me, despite trying several designs. Unfortunately, I find within minutes of wearing a helmet my head hurts, as all helmets appear to be too small for me. It's hard to admit it but I have a big head - literally. Perhaps one day I'll find someone who does...
