I too am long in the arm. 6'4" so in proportion.
I use an Altura Nightvision jacket, which I've found really good for arm length. Outstanding for high vis and has a detachable hood for when the going gets wet.
I think people might be exercising caution in responding, which I think is understandable. There's certainly a chap on here who towed a trailer with a Big Bear, and said bike is certainly known for its grunt.
My Wife has a Wisper 705SE (Pre 2016, full throttle) and while it'll haul my 16st...
After four years of pretty much fault-free riding, I've got my first real problem.
2016 Whyte Coniston, Shimano E6010 drive train.
I get W011 intermittently, lasts a couple of seconds and goes back to normal. In addition, but not at the same time, my speedo becomes erratic, saying I'm doing...
Over 50 years (just) on two wheels and never had a chain break. In my youth, chains would only get the occasional bit oil if they were seizing up - oil was a far more important commodity for my skateboard wheels :rolleyes:
Thanks David, the bike I'm interested in, funnily enough, is a Wisper. It's a carbon 906xc Tourer, so a bit unusual. Unfortunately when factoring in a battery rebuild, boxing, courier costs, it's at the point where the 905 demo you've got advertised will be cheaper (even if they're quite...
£900, five miles on the clock, and it's not black:
I'm very interested in an e-bike, but it's collection only and up in Cheshire, which isn't a necessary journey for me from down on the South Coast.
Can anyone suggest/recommend a courier service that'll basically do it all for me. It's important to me that the bike arrives in the condition I...
Such a difficult question to answer as it depends on so many factors. Your best bet (and I appreciate it's nigh on impossible at the moment), is to try as many different bikes as you can, and as many different drive train options as possible.
How tall are you and how much do you...
Well i don't think I know you, although we're obviously from a similar era. I make this clever deduction from the fact I don't know anyone who owns a GTech.
In any case, lockdown notwithstanding, I'm painstakingly selective about who I stalk :)
