Re: Which App

Hello,
I don’t know how you know that I have a Garmin 800 but I don’t anymore and has been a longtime since I had one. Regarding the Garmin that was going to be another post on which one to get as I don’t need any of the training aids within in them now.

Cheers.

Which App

Hello,
Is there an “App” that will help me plan our first mini tour, what I am after is a map of an area where I can choose a start point then map a route and find BB’s or hotels on the way and possibly give me an indication of the terrain (whether the route involves climbing).


Thanks in advance.

Re: Nano Bromptons

Regarding battery time, this is something I will have to look into because at present we are up to 30 miles daily and hoping to get it up to 50 miles at least once a week, but I want to make it clear she doesn’t want assistance for the whole ride but more like assistance on parts of it.

Cheers.

Nano Bromptons

Hello,
Are there any Nano electric users on here, if so what are your thoughts, any long term reviews.
Please, any info as I am thinking of converting my wife’s bike rather than spending 3k and loose Monet on her present Brompton.

Cheers.

Folding Bikes

Are there any specific forums for these bikes ,as i am thinking of getting a Airnimal Chameleon and was wondering how you go trying to get the same feel for speed as they only have 24" wheels. Do you just put larger chainrings on or is it that you cant replicate the 700c wheel speed.

Cheers
