The affordable electric vehicles outselling electric cars around the world

Plenty variety on offer and added to every day.

If you live in Scotland big incentives to help
Scotland Only
If you are considering purchasing an ebike, an exciting funding opportunity is available in Scotland through Energy Saving Trust. We offer an interest-free loan for individuals, repayable over four years, that can be used for:

2 x ebikes capped at £3,000 each
1 x family cargo bike capped at £6,000
1 x adapted cycle (value assessed on a case-by-case basis)
With the exception of an initial deposit, applicants must not make any other payment towards the purchase of the ebike(s) before receiving a loan offer under this programme as funding is not provided retrospectively.

The burst tyre saga reminded me, when we were about twelve years old my mate suggested we ride up to see his aunt in Mickleover somewhere up by Derby from our homes in north Birmingham.
We got there but it was a l o n g ride on our home built bikes. (turned out his aunt was the matron in the local mental hospital) (looney bin he called it)
On the way back his tyre burst, we took it off and stuffed it with straw and although a bit bumpy he got back home ok.

more North than East from Brum to Mickleover...

in other news, another small off on Saturday on the group ride...
banged up right elbow so off the bike for a week or 2 and work for 4 days
very close to this pic, same kerbing [all of 50mm], riding parallel and turning right i failed to lift the front enough to clear, side knobblies dug in and away we went :shock:

i'm blaming too much sag on the forks :rofl2:

knocked me about a bit at first, checked over by ride leader and insisted on escorting me home, luckily only 2 mile away and being able to do it by road

Bike was ok though :lol:
it does also mean i should have time to give it a 'proper' service at last

The name Valeo should be well enough known on the FCF, so what are they doing in the world of electric bikes :?:

They are certainly bullish (yes got the spelling right) about the e-bike market, and want their own piece of the revolution.

Automatic Transmission and belt drive

Boooooring that one, nowhere near as exciting as the Gateshead one a while back.



About a mile from my daughter's house.
