    Why so few hub geared bikes with belts ? Looking at Kalkhoff

    Being no expert but having a Batribike Quartz (with new batteries) but never have been keen on derailure gears I’ve just looked at the Rollfoff hub gear which I like very much, - combine that with a rear wheel belt drive and I’d have the lot! - if it were possible - and to find someone to supply...

    Ladies first electric bike

    This interesting article made me look at Woosh bikes website where I further looked at their Rambletta 20” folder instruction manual (for interest and comparison with my Batribike QUARTZ), being curious about tyre pressures I found on P.10 ‘Tyre pressures between 45 & 65psi recommended, roughly...

    I really can’t see any reason for this type of ridicule , we’re not children - or are we? Why not just pack it in and be sensible - or if that’s not possible Quit the Thread - or THE FORUM? Jim

    Discussions started about legalising e-scooters, could this mean insurance insurance for e-bikers?

    Quite apart from my car and bikes - which are properly insured I have two mobility scooters capable of up to 6 mph which are DVLA Registered, have allocated registration numbers but do not need to display plates and for which insurance is not compulsory ( although I do have it). Jim

    It could be worth £200 or so, worth making a bid, those machines usually came with a Sachs 50cc engine. Good luck Jim
