I don't own myself...what is this exercise stuff?...:laughing2dw:

But my elder son has one of these...an electric bike. I did have a go on it and would describe it as the same as the 'travellaters' you get at the airports. You pedal normally, but the bike goes at 3 x the speed you expect. It's quite unnerving..and what a price! You could buy a nice, SH car for this....this is £4Ks worth.....:swoon: In it's standard form it can go at a max speed of 30 mph....but it can be deregulated to go a lot faster...just don't get caught!

Electric bike.

You know the drill: One hour cleaning time for every minute on the road....:rolleyes:

Dug my 1988 model Diamond Back out of the shed for my 'daily exercise'. Had to buy two new tyres as the old ones had rotted. :whistle:

diamondback

I may even dig out the Yamaha SR 250 that has been in there for years. 

I got some Schwalbe semi slicks for the old trek that's on the back in my pic.

They're cracking tyres and I think they're under a tenner each.The centre of the tyre is about 3/16" thick too

Yes, £15 for a pair on Amazon. I thought it was a pretty good bargain.

£15/pair, even better.

I ran over someones England pin badge a few years ago, the pin had gone up the middle of the tyre but hadn't pierced it.

They last a long time :thumbsup:

Had a terrible offski nine years ago and it has left me disabled, so I ride this.

    nice looking trike.      the cx500 is top heavy,   can't get my heels on the ground.  the silver wing ( same bike - diferent frame)  is a low rider - compfie.   i started with the harleys ,  flat heads and knuckel heads are low riders,  but 800 lbs. striped. (too bad i can't send a pic').   after the "new knee "    youl be ready to go again. !

Sorry I'm not laughing, much.:laugh:

Best value for money saddles I've had are these 

https://www.merlincycles.com/charge-spoon-cromo-rail-saddle-106422.html

I've got one on one of my bikes and it's better than one that cost 5 times the price.

Couldn't agree more, very good saddles, I've had a couple on bikes in the past.

I've currently a Giant TCX SLR2. Great do everything bike, a little aggressive on the handling for what I generally do but its light, compact and can hold its own on fairly rough trails whilst being a breeze to press on on tarmac.
