Re: Add-on e-bike conversion kit - Swytch or eBay kit?

Swytch is operated I believe by the same people who retail as Panda Bikes UK kit bike supplier, at least two of the directors afaict are the same people. Oliver Montague is the main man behind it.

Re: battery wattage question

Which e bike ?
Most likely the battery uses 2500mah cells arranged as 10s4p, though some batteries may also use 10 x 10ah li-polymer pouch cells.

Re: Cyclists banned from using local recycling centres

My one must be one of the good ones, purposely built on new site some 10 years ago it has mutli bay use for about 20 vehicles to reverse in at a time, also at the top of the driving ramp there are pedestrian crossings from a pathway so foot and cycle are allowed access.

Re: New E Bike Purchase

A Pedelec member recently picked one up for £1100 with all discounts, not bad going for a Bosch powered bike if they(Bosch) are your cup a of tea.

Re: Best Ebikes for Touring?

Typically my often used battery doesn't see a deep SOC probably 50 or 60% then I top it up.
When I plug my battery in to charge my smart meter tells me the kw/h price has gone up by 1p so I use this as pence per hour rate for my charging as charge for me typically is 4 -7hrs depending on SOC.

Re: Display Unit indicates problem KT-LCD3

What motor controller are you using ?

KT lcdd3 is only 100% compatible with KT controllers all to do with software programming, they may/will partially work with other controllers however some functions don't perform.

KTM e-bikes and motorbikes are not the same company, the only bit they have in common is the name.

Re: New e biker

Be careful washing it don't use powerhose/jet wash, motor bearings can be iffy with water, recommendations are to repack the bearing cover seals periodically with grease (ask on Pedelec forum uk about this).
