Re: Tires for 16" wheel e-bike

If it was me I'd do 16x1.75 normal marathon. For about £15 a tyre.

Re: Making a long 131 link chain or buying new

Thanks Simon.

I've got the answers I need now.

I'll stick with what I've done for now and then order a couple of those later.

Making a long 131 link chain or buying new

I've replaced my chain on a freego wren today. It has a single 52t chainring with a 7 speed 14-34t freewheel. The chain I removed was around 131 links and the 116 Clark's chain I bought was obviously too short. Question 1. Is it ok to make a longer chain by using two new chains with two quick links?...

Re: What folding bike for target price £400 ?

I've got a used Raleigh stowaway 7 bought last year.

£100 buys it based in Doncaster.

Probably done 30 miles. Like new. It is dark grey.
