Re: Atenolol?

Exellent information, thank you everyone.

I looked at the scrap of the Atenolol packet again this morning and it's from last year, so he might not be prescribed it anymore.

Thanks again.

Re: Atenolol?

It is a BP med but does it make the person a liability while driving?

Atenolol?

Hi All, I was knocked off the bike today, I'll give you the details in anther post if anyone is interested. I haven't got a phone with a camera so I couldn't just take a photograph of the guys numberplate, so he wrote it down for me. The piece of card he wrote it on was the back of a packet of Ateno...

Re: Poor service at Evans

PH, It was set to miles, but, I reset it to km then back again to miles and that sorted it out. Weird computer stuff that's beyond my ken.

Update on the good will compensation I mentioned before; it hasn't been paid to me yet.

Re: Poor service at Evans

PH, yes I think that might be it. When I first got the ebike I had to reset it to miles instead of kms and I forgot that it'll be reset to the factory settings so I'm going to have to reset it again! Google convert says 20.8km miles is 12.92452 miles and google maps says the route that is 13.2 miles...

Re: Poor service at Evans

Update for anyone who's interested; I mentioned they did a fully service, well, they neglected to check the tyre pressure. A week after I got the ebike back the 'good will gesture' hasn't materialised. The speedo isn't set up properly; a route that google maps says is 12.2 miles registers as 20.8 mi...

Re: Poor service at Evans

I got my ebike back on Thursday. It had the new motor unit in as was needed. They gave it a full wash and service and put a new chain on (although I imagine a new chain would have been a co requisite to the new motor unit). They supposedly also fitted it with new brake pads although I couldn't tell ...

Re: Poor service at Evans

The motor system is Shimano by the way. I chose a bike with Shimano because Shimano stuff has always been so reliable for me in the past. I did ring Evans on Monday and the guy said that the bike will be ready this week. I mentioned that at this stage they should be offering me a replacement bike, s...

Re: Poor service at Evans

Some really good advice thanks everyone.

I think I'm going to call them today and ask for a replacement bike.

Poor service at Evans

I got an ebike at the beginning of this year but the motor unit broke down, so I took it back to the shop on the 22nd of June and they've not repaired it yet. They say it's because it needs a new motor unit and the supplier doesn't stock motor units by thenselves. By now I think they should be offer...

Re: Forks for Low Rider Rack

Thanks for all the good advice.

I think after all it wouldn't be worth the faff, I'll go without a front carrier and when I've saved some pennies I'll get a different bike that's got all the mounts I want.

Btw, I feel rude leaving so long to reply but my internet access is really limited.

Forks for Low Rider Rack

I want to put a low rider front pannier rack on my bike but it's got carbon fibre forks so I'm not sure they'd take the stress put on them by a rack, I imagine steel forks would be more suitable. Can anyone suggest the best product for this purpose? (the bike I've got is a Cannondale CAADX btw).

Re: Inside of heel rubbing against chainstay.

Some excellent advice, thanks folks.

I think I'll go with the frame protection tape. With the pedal axle extenders I'd worry about damaging my knees.

Inside of heel rubbing against chainstay.

Hi Everyone, Since I started riding a bike with flat peals and wearing trainers instead of clip-in pedals and shoes I have found that the inside of the heal rubs against the back end of the chain-stay each time it goes round, and quite rapidly the paint gets rubbed off. Is there an accessory I can b...
