Re: The next step....

With it being designed to have the e-system integrated made a big difference too, it just seemed more polished. The downside is that polish costs (and if you're looking for full suspension, it costs a lot!) I'm currently going round in a loop in my head on whether to stick with what I have, buy a m...

Re: The next step....

I had the Gtech Escent rear hub drive and it went well especially on the road and of course was not concerned if you tried to pull away in too high a gear . But off road I found it hard work keeping up with mid drive bikes - especially up hills . I have got a Giant Strance now but its a heavy beast ...

Re: The next step....

Just converted my Giant Stance E to tubeless , I waited until I punctured first though ! Just bought two tubeless valves for £6 and put a cupful of "left over" Gloop in as sealant - all good so far ;-) I'm converted to the E bike thing and have found new routes that I didn't know about despite livin...

Re: Sinnis blade opinions

But then for not much more than the Blade you could have one of these : https://www.lexmoto.co.uk/models/LJ250-3V

Looks like a good basis , mabe a 450 version with better suspension ? ;)

Re: Sinnis blade opinions

Had a Himalayan for two years now , which is something of a long term record for me ! For £2500 the Blade looks an attractive option . I like the Himalayan and have still got it because I really don't know what I'd replace it with .

Re: Sinnis blade opinions

Drop a 21" front wheel into the Adrenaline as an option ? I did try my Apache 250 with the 17" front and even I could tell the difference :roll: . I was impressed how well the little 125 pulled my 100kg along and in a strange way its torquey , in that its not easy to stall - got good traction too ev...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Mine has only misted up in direct sun , as did my XT660Z and HD , even then only very slightly . If it does it more I'll go for the vent holes solution , maybe with a rubber grommet to stop rain water getting in easily . I'd like to think you are no less likely to complete a journey on the HImalayan...

Is the front tyre on backwards????
No because it is a front tyre , tread optimised for braking , rear would be opposite .
