Re: Pannier Advice

Thanks, okay, so I'm happy enough about the bend, but I feel I'd be better of with this version - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Icqm0l6WJ4 In the video you link, it clearly goes on quite easily (aside the bend) but if you imaging the fitting from the video I post, all of a sudden add in a good 1-...

Re: Pannier Advice

Hi all, someone please advise... I don't think my pannier rack is the right one. I ordered the disc version , as my bike has disc brakes. The main difference looks to be big blocks at the bottom where it attaches to the bike - https://i.imgur.com/gwbduCih.jpg But these mean I have to almost stretch ...

Re: Pannier Advice

SO for me to check, these points with the rubber stops in, are what I need for a pannier rack, right?

Re: Pannier Advice

Actually, looking at those pictures, the 2.1 looks like it's more compatible with a 'regular' rack?

So this I assume?

Thanks.

Re: Pannier Advice

For about 50 quid less, you could get a pair (ie 2) of Ortlieb panniers. You can use individually and they have a shoulder strap for off bike use. Two panniers could be useful if you decide to do a bit of touring or maybe even a decent shop. I replaced a similar designed rack on my non touring bike...

Re: choice of 3 ebikes? which one...

The only reasons I wonder if I should have gone with the Boardman is the battery is removable, so if you want a lighter bike for regular use, you can do that. Also, you can change/upgrade the wheel son the Boardman. My Orbea has it's motor in the rear wheel, meaning I can't do this.

Re: Pannier Advice

Ortleib good. Cycle Republic's website is awful. I don't seem to have any issues with their site? I'm going to be buying with a Cycle2Work code, so need to use them Halfords or Tredz. Do your seat stays have mounting points for the rack's front arms to attach to? Fairly sure I do. I've just not act...

Pannier Advice

Hi all, I just got an Orbea Gain F20 for commuting and was wondering about perhaps kitting it out with Panniers. I'm liking the look of the Ortlieb stuff, which I believe is well respected. Maybe a rack like this and a bag like this.

Any thoughts?

Thanks :)

Re: choice of 3 ebikes? which one...

How does the F30 differ to the F20? I just got an F20 so might be able to answer any questions?

I really like it, but have only ridden it a couple of times.

Wahoo ELEMNT with Orbea Gain F20

Hi all, I just got an Orbea Gain F20 which my ELEMNT correctly recognised as an eBike. Unfortunately it doesn't measure the distance correctly now, coming up about 60-80% of what it should. Wahoo say Orbea's aren't supported yet, but I likely need to adjust the wheel size... Can anyone advise how I ...
