` secondary gear ` .. is that the derailleur external gears .. or do you mean inside the motor cover ?? Yes the latter Gary - there is primary reduction gear inside the left bit using plastic gears and a special grease, and a secondary reduction gear in the RH side which uses metal gears and yer st...

Re: Electric MTB

Very hilly here in my part of Wales; 20 miles range up and down very steep terrain on full assist and I'm overweight and unfit! 100 miles on flat cycle paths in Eco mode; Cube with 500w battery. Sounds about right, hopefully soon battery technology will get much better! My battery would be approx 5...

Re: Electric MTB

My Kit came from Woosh, not the cheapest but will provide a proper warranty, and technical backup. The battery is known as a "Frog" presumably to do with it's shape, and is 13Ah. I would estimate range at perhaps 40 miles max, and have gone as far as 32 miles with some left - it would be nice to hav...

Re: Electric MTB

I did the Bafang BBS01 crank drive a few weeks back on my old Specialized - loving it and out every day :) Specialized.jpg The frame shape did present a challenge and I couldn't fit the conventional battery, but the seat-post mounting is working fine, and you don't notice the weight as much as expec...

Re: covid dystopia

Glad to hear all is ok with you Gary. Yes you are right how everyone is behaving while out, even down here in Southern England! :shock: People are pleasant and courteous when you go out for a walk/exercise, keeping their distance, saying thank you, and hello. Ironic as these will be the same people ...

Re: Work Case #16 CRF450R

By way of comparison, my lad's 701 Husky had over 820 hours on it, before it was nicked recently. The dealer had the lid off at 700 hours, all good. (changed a cam chain as a precaution, given we were already in there). Clean oil and filters boys - the air filter is even more important than the oil...

Re: Work Case #16 CRF450R

I don't think the people that bought these bikes were the typical trail riders that we might recognise, more like MX riders who wanted something to just hoon around on for 1/2 hr and then leave it in the shed for the next six months.... Can't recall the service intervals for the Hondas, hardly any M...

Re: sorn

Yes and a reminder that most of us may as well SORN our bikes now as I doubt we will be on them in April.... Unless yours is essential transport of course.
