You can make adjustments to the battery connector which may help, and ity sounds like your gears need adjustment.Just update on mine battery wobble is nightmare and marking paint work , chain slips in between 4/5 gear ,
The LCD will power down after a certain period, that's normal. Not sure how long it is, I would guess around 5 minutes. It then resets the trip becasue it assumes you have started a new one.Just done 12.5 miles all in normal mode pas only on 2
awesome loved every minute
just ordered a Xcl suspension seat post 31.6 mm as that’s my only grip with having hard tail mtb £65 delivery
something I did notice I couldn’t reset trip distance from yesterday ?
plus if you come to a stop whilst out and the lcd screen goes off after a few minutes when you restart the lcd screen the distance resets itself ?
so far overall distance I’ve done is 21 miles in two days and love it so much more enjoyment I’ve ordered also a drink bottle mount to attach to post under the seat . Plus the battery does rattle a bit even the new limited edition 17ah battery I paid extra for so will have to look into this maybe some draught excluder ?
I really fancy some red tyres like to be noticed lol what’s the biggest dia tyres you can fit I’d like some chunky ones ?
the new 17ah battery doesn’t have any graphics as per oxygen web site so once lockdown is over il get a place to make me some
Very late reply.....almost a year and what a year we have had!What’s the thing Velcro strapped to frame ? Is that a batt pack for front light
Hello.Ive now clocked up 3000 miles on the MTB 2, and going as strong as ever.
I replaced the rear calliper the other day, for the cost of a new one it was easier than keep cleaning the old one out and teasing it back into working properly.
Did the UK cycle for diabetes as part of a small team, Team Oxygen Bicycles, all of using Oxygen bikes for our mileage.
Was really enjoyable, with plenty of motivation from within the team to hit our targets.
We managed between us to rack up enough miles to be at the top of the overall distance leaderboards which was very satisfying, and testament to these bikes.

Ive yet to come across anyone who has much wrong to say about Oxygen, and its good to see that they have gone from strength to strength, especially over the last year of complete weirdness.
I've just come upon this thread of yours. I used an Oxygen 2011 model Emate for 6 yrs and it packed up. I loved the bike & need a new bike to get out. I have angina problem which cannot be stented so the throttle on my Emate was great. I've tried a Forme crank driven bike with high torgue motor but did not get the same help( which I need) on the hills.
Was your previous Oxygen fitted with a throttle?
I am trying to determine if the set up on your bike with the new choice of 3 power levels and 6 assists can make up for the loss of the throttle. Any advice & info you can give me will be gratefully accepted. The Throttle bike was life changing for me as I can be active but at a controlled heart rate. Your thread has been entertaining and informative and the bike looks great in your pics.
Thanks Andy. I don't think I can get a throttle on the 2021 Oxygen bikes. Its the hills which I am worried about & Oxygen have this selection of 3 x 6 power options which I trying to get more info on.Hi there
Thanks' for the nice comments about the thread
Yes, both models I have had include the throttle. It might be an optional extra on both bikes, but can easily be added on if you were to buy a second hand one without.
On both my old and new bikes, the throttle was setup to take you up to, shall we say a good speed, rather than the default walking pace.
I do know that Oxygen have changed the LCD control panel on the newest models, which means the bike cannot be derestricted, probably (but i cant confirm) stopping you from increasing the throttle speed.
The Mk1 and early Mk2 models had the original LCD screen which could easily be derestricted, including setting the throttle to take you past the walking speed.
It might be having a word with Oxygen, Im sure they will be happy to clarify.
Hope that helps
