That statement is tempting fate. :eek:
I have only ever had one incident and that was when somebody set fire to my motorbikes and stupidly stole the helmet and some tools from the top-box one night. It was easy for the police to spot him walking along a road half an hour or so later. Didn't...
I have already discussed the bike with the police in Hampshire, including a demonstration of the off-road switch - the only time I have used the extra speed on the road.
However, how can I turn myself in when I have done nothing illegal?
Or are you once again implying that Wisper are knowingly...
"does it really matter if an ebike can potentially exceed a limit of 15 mph by a few miles per hour more?"
It is illegal.
"Does it really matter that my fully charged battery is capable of propelling me to 17.5 mph if I judge that it is safe to do so?"
It is illegal.
Go to Germany where they...
Does anybody actually use the quick release skewers any more? My Wisper had one for the seat post that lasted about two minutes when I first got it home. Had I left it on then that is also about the same time it would have lasted when I parked the bike somewhere.
The problem I find with D Locks...
How much does it weigh? My Abus is so heavy I have trouble picking it up,
You don't have anything to secure the front wheel though - that is what I use the cable lock for: front wheel, saddle and through the battery handle and frame.
Unfortunately, it won't take a lot of effort or time to cut through it, and I would only use it as a secondary lock.
I always use two methods of locking the bike: a good "D" lock, or a heavyweight Abus chain lock, with a 1m Yale cable lock - different types giving different problems for the...
There is no such thing as "technically illegal" or "just a bit illegal". Your bike is illegal - fact.
Stop trying to defend the fact that you are riding an illegal bike and that everything is OK, because ignorance is no defence in law.
Don't you have use of a dictionary?:
1 related to or based on reason or logic.
2 able to think, form opinions, make judgements, etc.
3 sensible; reasonable.

No you didn't, and as I posted - all you have to do is read the forum, or use the functions provided.
One point about Juicy Bikes: the owner and administrator of this forum has posted on this forum informing members of a special offer from the company, so he obviously has no problem with them...
I'm sorry, but to try to make this sort of comparison is total rubbish.
Ebikes are not classed as motor vehicles. There is no tax, no compulsory insurance, no compulsory helmet, no licence needed to use a legal ebike on the road.
That is the difference - but the continued abuse of the law by...
It is OK combing SatNav and reversing camera on a single screen - you don't need the SatNav whilst reversing into a parking space. However in normal forward travel you need to be able to see your route on the SatNav and the ability to see what is behind you at the same time, and all of the time...
Who needs an old fashioned mirror - break it and you get seven years bad luck.
Everybody needs one of these:
They will cost a tiny bit more than conventional mirrors though. (a mere £155 approx).
It would free up vast quantities of air for the rapidly expanding world population to breathe. I dislike the idea that I am having to breathe second-hand air on many occasions already.
What is the point of having this valuable resource trapped at high pressure in tyres/tubes where...
