    Cycling Jacket

    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. Gaz

    Please help to choose E-bike for 2 child trailer and unfit parents.

    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...

    Strange wheel speed problem

    Of course, having dobbed it in, I've just done eight miles fault-free, with the exception of the last 100yds, where W011 popped up its ugly head again, but this time hasn't gone away. Gaz

    Strange wheel speed problem

    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...

    First e-Bike (Somewhat overawed and confused...!) - Help / Guidance appreciated

    Did the same with me at the end of April: https://www.pedelecs.co.uk/forum/threads/help-to-choose-first-e-bikes.37038/?view=date#post-556556 Odd behaviour :rolleyes: Gaz

    Who is Liable to Exceeding 15.5 mph on an E Bike

    I'd say the person in control of it, and riding it where they are, or are not, legally entitled to. But that's a very simplistic view. Gaz

    Front sprocket detached from crankset - Why? Has it happened to anyone else?

    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: Gaz

    Collection & delivery options during lockdown

    £880, but a zero bidder. Lot of money, nice as it may be. £950 for the 905SE ex demo from Wisper. I'm out. Gaz

    Collection & delivery options during lockdown

    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...

    Help! Bike for petite mother

    I like the look of the Rambletta :cool: Mrs Gaz is a tad taller than you, and has a Wisper 705SE, which she loves, and is also very good. Gaz

    Collection & delivery options during lockdown

    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...

    Help! Help To choose first e bikes.

    Hello Klossie 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...

    Newbie on a Gtech

    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 :) Gaz
