Funny - there were one or two words in there that are not to far of the mark, but in a different context. Glad so many will be frothing at the mouth when .... it comes.

Wonder what Trailgumby got - perhaps my stories tipped the scales in favour of road-speed.


BTW - the forum is tapatalk compatible.

I think he's in Perf. So we may have a wait a bit for the sun to rise over the perforated line.

The Big News: BNA has created an App that is now available in iTunes.
The interesting thing, it is probably not what you think or expect - being the enthusiastic cyclist that you are.

Image

For the past few months I have been working with David Halfpenny on the e-bike Round Table - e-bike buyers guide. We have e-bike five importers / retailer who have participated and responded to various questions, even the hard ones. Because we thought the results were so valuable, in addition to the three-part e-bike feature published on BNA we created an ebook for iPads that is now in Apple iTunes:
ebike buyers guide (free).


Image

Image


While I am not your typically e-bike rider and many in the forum are also not, e-bikes however are a chance to get many more people on bikes. Often the person who buy an e-bike is looking for a transport alternative.

Because Australia hasn't been blessed with the same cycling culture and integration as Europe, plus there have been a few dodgy operaters that have left customers out-of-pocket, I have been interested in providing information to help buyers make better purchasing decisions. For example, the pros and cons of a conversion kit versions a complete e-bike or even how to tell a good ebike brand / dealer.


For some this will not be of interest. For others, your family or friends could enjoy and benefit from this info have a look, share it around. The online version will be published on BNA in three parts, the first has gone online today: Expert Round Table – Buying an E-Bike Part 1
