Re: OBREA GAIN D40 (e-bike)

Can the batteries be replaced easily?
I will buy one of these later in the year if so.

Converting cable disc brake to hydraulic

Hi is there any kits that are worth changing from cable to hydraulic brakes on a mtb? Seen a few on eBay but not sure if anyone has done this?

Re: OBREA GAIN D40 (e-bike)

Hi where is the best place to buy one of these? I have an ankle problem that has been operated on but on hills it’s just so painful. I’m fairly new to cycling and done my first audax yesterday but every hill my ankle just feels like it is on fire. An e-bike like the orbea should help me continue to...

Road style e-bike

Hi I’m thinking of an e-bike as I have an injury that is as good as it gets. I know lots of people will say I’m cheating but if it means that I can still get out and ride then to me it’s worth a try. I have seen orbea and carera bikes but what is out there for around 2k? Regards Dan I'm a trendy con...

This I need to build up to. I do get down on the drops but not all the time. I’m no racer but like to comp...

Re: Biscuits brake road bike under 2k

Hi it’s mainly for getting fit. Sunny weather as I will use my turbo trainer when it’s grim. Distance wise up to 60 miles. Speed wise just depends on distances. But I want to push myself to get better. I’m never going to compete in anything just for pleasure and fitness. I think that I will just hav...

Strava and Panobike

Hi all I am new to all this and I have just fitted a PanoBike speed and cadence sensor.
I have installed the app for PanoBike.
Will Strava and thus automatically work or will I have to do something to get them to work?
