Re: Decathon bike. Adding a second battery?

Have looked at that bike too.....
Spare batteries are available and could be carried on rides and swapped if needed.

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

Another option, separable not folding, 20” but not really fat tyres but mostly UK built and designed is the ARCC Moulton.

The suspension might not appeal.... We have one and it is good but, again, pricey!

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

Wow, that Aventon bike has got fat tyres!! Without mudguards you might get wider tyres on the Victoria but nothing like that! These Specialized are close but not all 20” wheels or tyres are the same....lots of researching needed! https://www.certini.co.uk/45778/products/specialized-big-roller-20-inc...

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

You can find bikes from the UK and Europe but they come at a price......which is why people look to Chinese made products. Brompton (16”) are good and UK made. Vitoria (20”) look good and made in Germany but as with Bromptons, pricey. http://blacklionbikes.co.uk/product/victoria-etrekking-8-9-town-c...

Re: What I can do regarding my Flyer battery

Did a quick google and discovered this link to a wholesaler with the c series and also details of spec plus a tab for a uk dealer network. Might be of use.....

Re: My Moulton TSR - a love story?

I thought the spec was good when I weighed up whether to buy it. I’m a fan of Brooks saddles and the titanium Swift is lovely. The cassette is Campagnolo, as expected, the set up works well even though the chainset is not part of a group set. The carbon seatpost has been fine. I’ve had to slacken it...

Re: My Moulton TSR - a love story?

As always, a bit late in the day but here goes. I always hankered after a spaceframe Moulton so a few years ago bought a TSR 30 TE DBS off the for sale section here. It was fitted with the Stronglight chain set and Campagnolo levers and mechs. It is my second most used bike, after my Brompton which ...

Is this the part?

Seems quite inexpensive. Apologies if not the right one. Other controllers are dearer it appears.

Looks like Argos sell Eplus bikes.... They may be able to guide you to a replacement battery.

Re: Spa Cycles (Harrogate)

Always had good service from Spa, mainly over the phone and two visits to the store. One to the old shop where an older fella was really helpful scouring the shelves and storeroom for an odd collection of bits that I needed, plus giving advice on gear inches while I was there. It was a Saturday so e...

Surely it must be this..... a PS10/E

Same tubing, fork crown, lack of chrome and spec...... this one is gold but the inset shows a silver one!

Re: Peugeot with Reynolds 531 frame tubes ( info sought )

Hi, Late to the party but it looked a bit like a bike a colleague rode in the early 80s. He knew it wasn’t the highest spec. but was close to a PX10 or even a PY10. I’m pretty sure your bike is this one, from ‘78 but in silver? https://www.flickr.com/photos/danslegrandbleu/albums/72157667761485256 H...

Re: Giant e battery fitment - won't seal !

Did you buy the bike new? It looks like there might have been a bit of a repair there....the paint finish is a bit ‘scratched’ and the black splash guard and seal look a little worn? If new, a warranty issue.... if second hand.... more difficult. Perhaps a bit of tape or old inner tube would cover g...
