Re: New to ebikes can't decide

Thanks for all your help on here, l tried a Juicy folding compact bike today and loved it so bought it. It has 8 speed derailleur gears but l'll get used to them as l was hoping for hub gears, these are easy though. Very happy so far, thanks for challenging my thinking and all the helpful hints

Re: Is the UK government an incompentent bunch of liars?

Costco ebike

I wonder if you could have a quick look on the spec of this Costco bike please. It seems cheap for what it is, is it a bargain? Or not worth buying? My budget has gradually increased from £1,200 to £2300 over time, l have now decided to avoid folding bikes but want a step through bike preferrably wi...
