I was brave (or stupid) and ordered two 700c kits and two Brompton kits.
All the kits arrived a week or so ago. Sadly one of the kits is without a battery or charger. Emailing Swytch has not worked and they have no telephone number to call.
The PAS does not fit on my donor bike as it's a carbon frame with a fat bottom bracket. Swytch say they do other types of PAS but I am waiting for a reply.
In the meantime the tyres came for the Brompton kits so I'll try to put one together this week.
If anyone is thinking of buying from Swytch I would wait until you can get a telephone number. Their only interest appears to be more sales and positive marketing; customer service is not on their list.
I have got this number / email and another one:I would wait until you can get a telephone number. Their only interest appears to be more sales and positive marketing; customer service is not on their list.
Thank you Tigs. I have had an email from Oliver saying someone will contact me. I won't hold my breath.
I have sent Hayley a WhatsApp. It's been read. I wonder what will happen.
Looking at the directors for panda and Swytch, they are the same person.There is an Oliver who works at/for Panda Bikes & I think they are very closely linked to the Swytch project. If they have a Twitter account, go on there and vent your spleen. That often works miracles.
There are solutions for hollowtech on the Swytch facebook page.I also got two kits. I managed to fit the first one on my wife's bike quite easily. We had the chance to try it only for a few miles, but first impressions are mostly good.
The other one is for my old road bike and I'm still struggling fitting the PAS magnets on to the hollowtech BB.
