That could be interesting - you'd either have to pedal or put your feet up on the barsonly a "fixie" left. I don't fancy converting that!!
You took the words right out of my mouth, Trex!the guy is 78 with only one good leg, honestly.
What, in your vast experience, is silly about suggesting to a bloke who WANTS TO KEEP UP WITH HIS ROADIE MATES & doesn't want an old fart's bike, that he tries a bike that meets those criteria.You took the words right out of my mouth, Trex!
I'm sure that there are no electric bikes like Oldman wants. He will have to compromise on the looks, or buy any bike on Ebay, or wherever, that he does like, send it to Cyclezee for Ezee kit fitting (or Xipi for Xipi kit) cost £25 by Paisley freight, then get it shipped back for £35, and then he'll be able to ride round with one good leg with or without (probably with) pedal crank reducer, and live happily ever after.
Please, no more silly suggestions to confuse the issue. Unless Oldman gets a leg transplant, his criteria are: must have throttle, must have good torque, needs to look racy (reading between the lines). Only the last can be compromised. The first two are prerequisites.
A fixie perhaps, keeping the rotation going?Frequently, I saw a chap with one leg cycling, he had some sort of counterbalance on the the pedal where there was no foot and travelled at a reasonable pace. Quite amazing, I guess mounting and dismounting was a bit of a task, but he obviously managed.
That's a possibility Tony, it's a long time ago and the only thing that I remember is the chap having one leg. Incidentally, Richmond Park is less than mile from the Douglas Bader Rehabilitation Centre where artificial limbs are made for amputees, the centre is located within the grounds of Queen Mary's Hospital Roehampton.A fixie perhaps, keeping the rotation going?
Was chatting with one of the directors from Diavelo about the au2bahn; wonderful bike that fulfilled my needs but at £3000 was out of reach. this guy did some good power test for me; even took the chain of and used the pas, went quite fast. The Diavelo Brai Urban is a similar breed but heavier, take off all that metal work etc and it would be lighter. See Amazon for an offer priceGood to hear you are getting better regarding thr cancer bit , this is why i wish to buy a ebike i had cancer of the left kidney & now want to build mysef up again , just got to get myself one of those grace bikes or the diavelo au2bahn 45 ,,, lovely stuff
Hi for what its worth I would go with the Revolver it is based on a reliable kit is 36v lithium and has a throttle and is a relatively light bike.After browsing dozens of sites and comments I think I'm down to 2.
Powabyke MK3 X24
cyclocity Stealth or Revolver
These seem to fill my needs
