Re: Best Ebikes for Touring?

Re fitness I am normal weight for 6 ft 4 and work in the garden (200m long up and down all day) 6 hours a day thought think of myself as especially fit. I cant walk anymore due to arthritis in my hip but it doesn't affect cycling.

Re: Cycle Navs?

Thanks , hadn't thought of vibration but even stopping and being able to read the phone without getting glasses out would be a bonus. I had a fairly large Samsung but when I replaced it they didn't do one as big anymore.
