Re: what power/speed would you like if no regulations

I was musing this question whilst out today on my Fazua powered bike. I have ridden around 5000Km since moving to an E bike due to injury. Whilst more speed is allways attractive, I looked at my average speeds, often over 17mph, with longer rides in the summer over 19mph average. Also now able to ke...

Re: Fazua range

I have a Cain bike with Fazua, and weigh 94kg.
With it always set to eco mode I would get around 75km, with around 1000m of climbing.
When touring I carry a spare battery, but find with bags on tour im looking at around 60km a battery.

Re: eBike like my Specialized Tricross for £3k

I went from a Diverge to a Cain.
I have to say I prefer the ride on the Cain. I have ridden the Cairn over 2000 miles with no great issues including touring the Pennine Way this year.

Re: Ribble CGR Al e wheelset

Worth considering other gravel bikes with better standard wheels too.

Cairn adventure

Following struggling with a knee injury for some time, I have taken plunge and bought one of these. I waited until I have covered my first 1000k to report. First impressions were good, however on my first rides it developed a problem with an intermittent cut out. Following sending pictures to Fazua ...

Re: Summer sun advice

Im allways looking out for good advice, following Maiignant Melonoma with disfiguring surgury and five years of follow up treatment.
Throughout this time I have come to see us as a high risk group, meeting other cyclists with skin cancer at my follow up appointments.

Re: Frame protection

It's horses for courses really, I have shifters from SRAM and Shimano on my road bikes, but have planned a tour to Kyrgyzstan and like the simplicity, and don't mind the shifting. I have ridden 50k off road today and enjoyed the bike and shifters, only changed gear with my knee once but worry about ...
