Advantage of battery removal?

What is the advantage of being able to remove the battery?

I read conversations about it’s removal but don’t fully understand why it’s important

Thanks

Campag double cranks and campag record 10 speed STIs

I bought these to convert my commuter to sti, but that is not happening. However the LH lever is not fully straight and has a tiny crack (see pics) and I cant be faffed with changing everything over. Note that due to both my stupidity and lack of experience I had no idea of what I was buying. The RH...

Re: Weight: Summer v Winter

Ignoring the additional clothing, the difference between my steel summer bike and the winter bike (well the one I use the most as it has mudguards etc) is almost 6kg, which is not as much as your difference. (15kg ish v 9kg ish, the latter with no guards, skinner tires, no disc brakes, no rack and n...

Black ice

I try and commute on the bike. However I also keen to avoid ice as the cycle paths are not gritted. What I am unsure about is when to expect ice. Tonight it's down to around -3c and then staying there or thereabout so tomorrow should be cold. Today it's dry so am I safe to assume that the likelihood...

Re: What constitutes a beautiful bike?

I must be in the minority. I quite like Reohn2's genesis. Its beautiful to me as everything is functional. In the same vein the blue longstaff tourer is beautiful as there is nothing superfluous in it. I think some of the current carbon bikes can look beautiful, but they do need a bright paint job f...

Re: One of those days! Tired! Tired! Tired!

My commuting speed has dropped and time increased by around 1.5-2mph and 10-15 mins respectively over a 17 miles, 80 minute commute. TBH I have been struggling on the way back home as well, but that could be due to just pressure at work and general tiredness. I also have had a cold which just does n...
