Re: Disc Brake Pads

Compound depend son the rotor some are only suitable for resin/organic pads and will have this marked on the rotor.
The rotors on my Pinnacle state resin only otherwise harder material will cook the rotor and warp it, K02S for my brakes.

Re: What fat-tyred, folding, E-bikes (Not Chinese)

Just an update. Managed to find a Taiwan supplier. I asked the price for two to be shipped over (I would pay the shipping) and to pay by PayPal for security. No to PayPal, wanted me to buy 154 bikes at £533 each. So that's £82,000 plus the vat @ 20%, plus the import tax of 6% equals £104,408...plus...

Re: First Folding E-Bike - Volt Metro LS or Wisper 806?

Beat me to it stodd !!!
Woosh are very good at CS and lower end cheaper respectable bike quality.

For 4.5 miles you only need a small battery of 300wh.

Re: Costco ebike

How many gears and which power mode is of course all dependant on how fit one is or how strong ones legs are, what one person can do and get away with another can't.
I 'm same as Saudidave I have to at times lower gearing and use higher PAS level.

Re: Battery Charger Needed for Carrera Subway

The charge port is similar to XLR3 pin 16mm connector but I expect that is the only similarity. The SR Suntour system is bit unreliable and crap, for spares you are locked into Halfords as the system isn't commonly used elsewhere. The pins on the SR charger are known to be fragile and break, there m...

Re: Raleigh motus 400 watt battery

Afaik Bosch bikes that run parallel battery set up have to equipped to do so form the factory and the harness can't be retrofitted,
I'm not 100% on this but only a dealer can probably give a definitive answer.

Re: Corona ride mishaps

I had spectacular off last week, a high side and right over and off the bike. My pedal lhs struck a felled/cut log left at the side of a track, said log was cover by under growth and invisible to the eye. Handle bars needed straightening, rim wasn't buckled but needed 10 mins in my trueing stand and...

Re: Escooter trial to start

Shame I'm not commuting to work still - I'd pick one up for the train. Far less hassle than a bike and no dirty looks from commuters as you're trying to get it on and off past them in their suits and dresses. <edit> The Googling I've done suggests that far from being nationwide it's only in 4 areas...

Re: Carrera vengeance battery

8.8ah/316wh is good for about 30 miles in low assist in benign conditions, high assist will put that battery/cells under duress in constant use so the 12 miles is about right. Most cheaper ebike batteries aren't able to cope with max power at a constant. Some people tend to buy them as cheap use and...

Re: New to ebikes can't decide

The problem with Halfords is they have decide to go exclusive with the Suntour system, the Suntour systems problem isn't theirs but a third party's issue which for some reason the techies can't sort out. Not unlike the debacle that occurred with Darby built impulse drive that Khalkhoff used for many...

Re: Bafang kit fitted to ICE Sprint X 2018

Bafang or similar mid drive kits can be fitted with 2x chain rings with a mid drive spider though some cross chaining may be noticeable in some gears, the smallest inner ring you can fit is 32t.
