    Specialized Creo

    I just wondered if anyone on here was running a Specialized Creo or Levo yet? with the small 240 watt motor and 340 wh battery, they are rather expensive at the moment.

    Zello Pedelec channel

    I thought a channel on Zello might appeal to those who like to chat, I hear plenty of people chatting in cars so with the right gadgets linked to your smart phone it must be possible to do so on a bike, or from the comfort of your sofa. Channel name is - Pedelecs ride and chat UK...

    New Yamaha powered e-bikes at £1399

    Cheapest Yamaha powered bike I've seen. I'd have had one if I did some off-road stuff. The link is for the Giant Store Sheffield on Facebook. Guessing they'll be in lots of other Giant retailers too.

    I don't think much to the coating on the Bosch motors

    They don't make things to last these days, perhaps I should throw the bike away and buy a new one. Also time to delve inside again.

    Looks like I missed the pub night.

    I see there was some banter in the pub last night. I'm not much of a drinker so glad I went to watch another win. She beat all the boys, including the wobbly one just in front in this shot. He just pipped her to a win by the narrowest margin last week, she didn't let that happen this week. :)

    Cable operated hydraulic disc brakes

    I'd heard about these before. Perhaps a perfect solution for e-bike on cable disc brakes as standard. That's on a nice steel framed Raleigh bike http://road.cc/content/news/129257-more-2015-disc-road-bikes-raleigh-stevens-time-alchemy-colnago-pinarello-parlee

    Climb Everest in one day

    One of our local riders did a charity ride yesterday on a local hill to climb the height of Everest, he had to climb Snake Pass 27 times to achieve it ! I guess he might be a bit stiff this morning. http://app.strava.com/activities/188140924
