    Mounting plate for HL battery?

    So I've bitten the bullet and bought a nano kit for my brompton. It comes with a 36V 4Ah Bosch battery, and I have a spare battery in my lawnmower, but I was wondering about using the battery from my full-size ebike. That's got a 15Ah HL downtube mount battery. The only thing that's stopping me...

    Android App for HL battery pack

    A little while ago I downloaded an app for the HL battery from the Woosh website - I found it quite useful as it connects to the battery via bluetooth and gives the voltage of each cell so I can see what's going on. I've just changed my phone and want to install the app again, but Woosh have...

    Any thoughts about brompton nano conversion.

    I have a GSM crank drive conversion on my normal-sized bike, but it's a bit too heavy and cumbersome to load into the caravan when we go away. I'm toying with the idea of fitting a conversion to my elderly Brompton L5. The one thing that's putting me off is a vague recollection from somewhere...

    Upgrading brakes on converted bike

    HI, All, I have a Raleigh Pioneer utility bike with 7 speed shimano hub gears, to which I've added a GSM motor and HL battery from Whoosh. I've found that the combination of my weight (a bit on the wrong side of 16st), the increase in weight from the motor and the battery, and the increase in...

    Routine service of GSM kit

    I can't find any information about servicing the GSM kit, such as what needs doing, and how often. I'm assuming that day to day cleaning, checking tightness of fixings and connectors supplemented by occasional regreasing is about all that can be done. I'm also assuming that the regreasing can be...

    What's my wheel diameter?

    I know it seems a silly question, but looking around 'tinterweb it's not that easy. Really the question is "what wheel diameter should I program into the controller of my new GSM kit"? The manual for the 800S LCD says that I can choose between 16/18/20/22/24/26/700C/28/29, although the beast...

    Fitting the GSM kit

    So my GMS kit arrived from Woosh yesterday, and this morning I took it out for its first test ride. So how did it go? First impressions are that the kit is pretty well specified for its price point, and that everything you need is present. I bought the kit with the HL battery, and I've fitted...

    So it's back to being a pedelec owner...

    Hi, all, Looks like I'm returning to the wonderful world of pedelecs after a 6 year lay-off. I bought a Giant Twist comfort back in 2007 when I was cycle-commuting to work, about 10 miles each way, but when I retired in 2009 I got rid of it because I was only doing shorter distances. Now my...
