I have tried to fit a stem extender but found that no matter how hard I tried to tighten the two screws on the side, the extender did not close up sufficiently enough to grip the top of the stem.
On examination, it is 28.6mm just as my stem is, but the construction is so rigid that it will not...
I went to repair a puncture, and as usual the glue which had been used before was a solid lump.
This means that in practice, there is little need for more than a few patches in a kit unless it comes with an equal number of tubes of glue.
I see that glue less (pre-glued) patches are available...
Reading the Gtech adverts, I was struck by two phrases,
a 'No confusing gears'
b. 'No more oily chains'
They boast about these features supplied on their bikes. Of course this might be to 'cover up' the fact that their bike is poorly specced., and they try to suggest that the paring away of...
Having just had a battery re balanced, I was advised not to leave the battery in the garage in the cold.
However, e-cars are left out in all weathers, so what is the answer.

Three times in the past 20 months my Tonaro battery has gone out of balance necessitating sending it off for attention.
I doubt that it is anything to do with the way I use it because I have another battery, a 2011 phyllion one that is still working well although reduced in mileage.
I was looking at the latest edition of Cycling (CTC magazine) and noticed so many of the bikes in it had front mudguards that ended way above the riders shoes.
This seems to be the latest fad, even the Francis Barnett ebike, a traditional style cycle has a short front mudguard.
Yet a quick look...
At present I am suffering from an aching thumb joint thanks to my Shimano 'thumb' gear changer.
It seems to me that from an ergonomic point of view, the system where you have to push the lever away from you against the spring is all wrong. The reason is that except for your hand gripping the...
Never heard of this before, but twice in the last 4 weeks I have found my front wheel loose.
I tightened up the nut and lever both times and am now keeping a watch on it.
I am certain that the bike has not been tampered with, the rear wheel and saddle clamp are as firm as ever.
Any ideas anyone?
Strange that we have not heard any more about this motor.
I got very excited years ago when d8veh reported on one that he bought and anticipated that our ebike shops would soon be offering it.
