This site will close soon, probably at the end of this months billing cycle, in around 3 weeks. The reasons: Constant hacking attempts, as many as 200 per day. They’re coming from all over the world, so a script kiddie trying to get access by using incorrect usernames. I have a firewall in place that bans them after one failed attempt, this is fast becoming a very large part of the database and .htaccess file. The site at certain times of the day can take an age to load. This is unnaceptable and throwing money at the problem won’t help.
In my last post I considered a new battery because mine is getting a little weak, and this week I ordered a new battery and have just had it delivered. With the battery came a leaflet from the manufacturer, Phylion in China. Jinshajiang Road, New District, Suzhou, P.R. China. Postcode 215153 Tel +86-512-6832-0283 Model Number: JCEB360-11 36v 11.6AH So that’s the company and battery details, my question is… are you someone who knows about electronics and BMS, do you know how to read and reprogramme said systems? Can it go faster than 16mph? Can the cells be replaced with bigger
My bike and battery are now well over 2 years old, and my battery is begining to lose its capacity. I didn’t follow my own instructions on battery care and left it charged to 100% for a few months, and on more than one occasion. Plus when I did my 45 mile ride I dropped the charge all the way down to 2%… VERY NAUGHTY I know. So as a result I’m now developing range anxiety, and instead of riding 25-30 miles in one go, I’m dropping this to 15 miles. So I’m worried and I need a new battery,
I recently bought a Garmin Virb and shorlty after I bought a GoPro hero 6, these let me show speed, inclination and distance data amongst other things. I found the video to be far too compressed with the Garmin, though it does store a huge amount of data, the video from the Gopro is far better but it contains less data. But all the important stuff is there. This is the GoPro at 1440P, though it can do 4K 60, but even my monster PC struggles at that high a resolution, 4K 30 is excellent, but I find
I’m not talking about electric motorbikes, they are a completely different category of vehicle, though to be honest I’d love one 🙂 I have a full bike licence but not the cash. So why buy an electric pedal assist push iron? Simple, they really really do help you get up them thar hills. Electric bikes differ visually from a regular bike very little, with newer e-bikes you could be hard pressed to tell the difference, with batteries built in to the frame or designed to looke like the frame, that tell tale bulge is now difficult to even see. Even
The EC courts have ruled that all pedal assist bicycles will need a mandatory motor insurance policy, however it’s not yet law so don’t panic just yet. Also if it does become law and a state can adopt this as law if they want to, does this mean you’ll need an applicable licence and registration? https://ec.europa.eu/info/publications/180524-proposal-motor-insurance_en I thought the whole idea of restricting the speed was to keep pedelecs within the realm of bicycles, so should the speed limits be removed too?

As you no doubt know, I’ve had an electric bike for over two years now, and it’s left a fantastic impression on me physically and mentally too. About me, I’m 47 years old, I’ve smoked for over 30 years, I live in Halifax West Yorkshire (a VERY hilly town), I also suffer with depression and have done for 20 years. I bought this bike because I’d started cycling again the year before I tore my knee cartilage, and I struggled getting any power through my knees. A few months after buying the Carrera Crossfire-E I had my knees fixed, and
I’m in desperate need of new (front especially) brake pads, and seeing as this is the first time I’ve ever done it, I thought I’d better get some pointers from Youtube. This is a job that requires you to remove the wheel(s). But it looks dead easy and can be done in just a couple of minutes. The brakes for the Carrera Crossfire-E are Tektro Vela. The second video is replacing the brake fluid. My next 2 areas of maintenance are brake fluid replacement and a new chain.
True story: My UFO sighting near Manchester Airport. It was around 2005 and I was driving from Halifax to Airdrie (Near Glasgow) and back. I was a class 1 HGV driver, and since it was a very long drive and could over run my driving hours it was double manned, so there were 2 drivers taking turns. On the way back we’d come down the M6 – M61 – M60 – M62, and this one morning we were stuck in early morning rush hour traffic trying to get on the M60 just south of Bolton and I was driving, the
