Hows the original battery pack bearing up after use. I've noticed recently that my oxygen s-cross was charging to 42v but gradually the max has been dropping to 41.7 over the summer/autumn period. Bike has 500 miles on it but only clocked up 30 miles in its first year before my ownership late 2017 gets used once or twice a week now.

Ive done 6000 odd miles on it now, not noticed any deterioration in the battery. For the most part of that, it was getting heavily used, charged twice a day 4 or 5 times a week.
Its always read 41.7 volts on the biked fully charged.
Only getting charged daily now as Im only doing around 13 miles a day

6300 miles clocked up now, still running sweet.

The current chain and cassette have done a fair few miles, I’ve got replacements waiting to go on, but despite the chain being overstretched it’s still working fine, so going to wait until it starts playing up.

After doing the headset bearings, I’m thinking it might be a good time to look at the bottom bearings...the crank?.....not sure of the technical term...

I am getting a slight clicking sound from that area when pedalling...gets loader the harder I pedal. I’ve changed the pedals recently, so it’s not them.

Not sure what’s involved in this job or if any special tools are needed to get the crank off.

Ive had the Oxygen for around 20 months now, and very close to 7000 miles.
Pretty amazing really when you compare it to others which I had before which struggled to get to 1000....thankfuly they seem like distant memories now.

Dont regret buying the oxygen at all, and wish I had known about it earlier and saved myself a few quid!

Everything running as smooth as clockwork on it now. I am doing around a 3rd of the mileage sinnce I changed jobs, but still probably most than the regular user, and its holding up well in all weathers.

Had the spiked tyres on for a couple of months now, wouldnt ride without them in the coldest weathers as the cycle paths I use arent treated and quite dangerous at this time of year.

Had a slight issue wit the pedal sensor last week, where it would internittently cut out. Traced it back to the sensor easily enough. Spent a week or so using the throttle to help me along when it played up, so no major drama...so happy that I asked for the throttle now :)

New sensor arrived from Dale at Oxygen last week, finally got round to fitting it this morning.

Hardest part was working out how to remove the pedal bar (or whatever its called) without skinning my knuckles....which of course I did before I found the simpe way to do it.

5 minutes later and the old one was off and the new one on, and everything working as it should.

Still have a new chain and cassette to go on, which I bought a while ago, but there doesnt seem much point changing it yet as no issues.

Thanks again t Dale at Oxygen for the quick despatch of the sensor, and the help.

As i have said before, cant recommend the Oxygen enough. Cracking bikes.

Thanks egroover

Hard to know what to update with these days as it runs so smoothly...dont want it to look like im only posting when there is a small problem, as it doesnt really reflect on the bike.

Hopefully when this horrible winter is gone, Ill be doing a few more miles at the weekend going on droning adventures and I can put some of that up here :)
