Re: Pricing a bike for sale

Try a high price,and if it does not sell reduce price periodically,until a sale is achieved.A complex debate is quite superfluous.

Re: Petition to increase the 25kmh limit on electric bikes in the UK.

IWhats the issue.The police will not bother monitoring the speeds attained-they do little about cars which can be identified.If the speed limit is increased by the state they will rightly demand
A tax
B insurance
C a test
D registration plate
These measures would be excellent.
