My 'Torq Motor Jammed' thread has given me a new and humbling insight into those who inhabit this forum. No fewer that seven members have contacted me offering support - from donating motors, to lending entire wheels, to helping to track down spares, to offering to come half way across the...
I have a jammed front wheel on my Torq 1. First thought was the hall sensors as before it froze up it was making a noise like a man building a shed. Cleaned the connections etc, but no solution. When the bike ground to a halt the motor sounded like it was whirring round quite happily...
The Pedelecs Map now has approaching 100 members and has been viewed over 14000 times.
See the sticky thread above and ask there if you would like your name literally put on the map. The more the merrier.
As this is not a problem or an issue, indeed quite the opposite, I guess it fits here rather than above, though I am happy for Russ to move it if I am wrong.
I just received a new battery for my Torq today from Mr Ching at eZee bikes as a fulfilment of his offer made on this forum some time...
The Swizzbee website has not been updated since 2006. Has anyone ever seen or ridden one? From memory, lectureral almost saw one in Geneva but that is the closest anyone has got . . . unless you know different. ;)
Any info welcome.

In that spirit, I would be grateful for transparency on the progress of Mr Ching's offer to give free replacement batteries to those whose batteries...
Well I keep reading about the Torq and its lack of torque, and I have no reason to doubt those who find this a problem as it is an objective fact that the Torq is substantially over-geared. Nevertheless, these things are all relative. I have no problem sailing this trailer and my two sons...
It would be interesting to have a definitive list of factory upgrades on the Torq since its release together with dates. Just in the last day or two I have realised that the mudguards and lights have changed over the months. Anything else?
I suspect that Flecc may well have the...
There must be a secret to setting up mudguards so that they don't rub on the tyre everytime you hit a bump. I have grown quite adept at reaching round on my Torq and pulling the rear mudguard back into place, but it is annoying. I have tried tightening screws to no avail.
I got an online insurance quote for my Torq - just over £90 per annum for theft and public liability. I have a serious lock and live in a reasonably low risk area; or at least my bike is only left in low risk places. I can't help thinking that putting £90 each year into my 'next bike fund' is a...
