Re: Titec HBAR handlebars

No further response from Malinky, so sale is now payment-pending from another forum member.

Re: Clear out - shimano, Spa cycles, Ortlieb, Schwalbe, Parktool etc

I've been looking for a "bell that works" for while, so will give your "KNOG Oi bell Large" a try.

How do you want payment?

Curious to know why you're selling. Is it just 'too subtle' a sound?

Their widest point at the grips ends is is 67cm.

They are from an older era so have the smaller (25.4mm?) clamp section.

SOLD - Titec HBAR handlebars

Titec HBAR handlebars (as designed by Jeff Jones... on bars and quirky frames). I think they're a bit rare these days. £35 posted. Had them on my single-speeder, but have now opted for cowhorns instead (why? I wanted TT-style brake levers that I could route without external cable runs). Allow variou...

Did the Evans mechanic not have the appropriate tool (not being a Kalkhoff dealer) then?

Re: Q: How much resistance when motor is OFF

So have you tried riding at 15mph, whilst with assistance, and then turning it off and seeing how that feels? Try accelerating from 10-20mph with no assistance at all, then try it the same with motor (albeit it cutting out at 16mph). You'll think that you're pedalling through treacle when you push p...

Excellent, thanks for confirming that.
Why didn't I think of looking there first?
One less thing to worry about.

Re: Shimano STEPS battery, always shows 5 LEDs

These are smart batteries, the handlebar display only knows how many power-bars to show based on what the state-information is reported to it by the battery. Handlebar shows 2 bars, the battery should also display 2 LEDs - at least that's my assumption, that I'm seeking to have confirmed. Has anyone...

Shimano STEPS battery, always shows 5 LEDs

My STEPS battery always shows 5 LEDs - whether fully charged or pancake flat. The bar control/display shows the correct 1..5 blocks reflecting battery-charge state and remaining miles does reduce accordingly. So I know the system's working. I presume my battery should show fewer LEDs to reflect stat...

Re: Q: How much resistance when motor is OFF

I agree with the odd sensation when power tails-off/stops at the limit. On more than one occasion I've stopped to check that I don't have a puncture. When cycling on the Eco setting I am providing sufficient power (i.e. input power on the cranks) to ensure the motor is running at it's Eco-level-max ...

Re: Q: How much resistance when motor is OFF

The treacle feeling is just the extra weight of the hub and is centrifugal, if that extra mass was evenly distributed at the circumference of the wheel it wouldn't be so bad, but as the mass is central at the axle it is a heavier dead weight to move unpowered. Low gearing is needed until you are ro...

Re: Q: How much resistance when motor is OFF

Glad you're having such a positive experience with your Steps system,other than when switching off. The only thing I can think of is it still having to turn an idling geartrain within the Steps unit,though the ressistance would be minimal it's felt by the rider. How long have had the bike,what's th...
