  • Aye Bosch Active Line, real nice HUD display on bars, and motor in the cranks, as opposed to rear hub.

    Eco mode is 40% assist, 100% Tour, 150% Sport, 250% Turbo

    Tried a Tranz-x motor too but wasn't as quick as the bosch or refined.

    The premium Bosch on next bike up, has gear reset and autochange with a wireless mech, so when stopping it puts you back in easy gear for 0-60 and then auto shifts as needed when pedalling.

        • Ride report!!!

          I've had a lovely day. Proper happy with life today.

          Whenever I work the weekend I always like to have a monday play around. Last night I was trying to think where to go, and in a flash of inspiration I thought about my favourite diggle jiggle. http://cycling.tfgm.com/Pages/maps/Diggle-Jiggle.pdf
          Haven't done that in ages.
          I set off from home, so there was a 6 mile or so commute each side of the circuit itself.

          So off I set, #discobike blaring out some 90's britpop indy.
          I'll be honest with you, this is the first time I've done the jiggle without my daughters boyfriend, who thinks he is a mountain biking body builder, but in reality is just a heavy, slow cardiovascular mess.
          And so, as I reached the half hour mark I realised that I was massively ahead of my best time, and I didn't stop much for photos, instead chasing a good average speed.

          I took the time to stop and troll the forum with a nice pic of Whytney though. You've all seen this, but I thought it belonged in here.
          This was taken after what I believe to be the hardest climb of the route. The people who put the jiggle together however disagree, rating it as a 2 difficulty - "pulse racer".


          A little climbing further and a panoramic pic was taken


          A really treacherous downhill section, through what can only be described as a stream, with many loose rocks (I think Coiler would have hated this bit) and I reached the bottom of the "3" rated climb - "lung buster".
          It starts off as dirty lane. An apt title, and I felt a good phot opportunity.


          The climb was tough, but in reality was a 2 mile climb, with the gradient swapping between 10% and 14%. Coiler took me on rides with 22% gradient. This, while far from easy, was not the "lung buster" I remember.
          After 2 miles I had my toughest part yet - Which of my snacks should I devour at the top o' the trail?


          Mostly downhill from there, as I approached the end of the jiggle I looked at the time.
          Expected time? 2 to 4 hours
          My time? 1hr 25min

          And so to the 6 mile commute home. #discobike still blaring, 1.5 litres of caffeine water consumed. Protein milkshake, energy bar and cherry fake Nakd aldi bar demolished.
          Massive grin on face all the way home.

          • I have four days off over the weekend my 12 yr old wants to go on a mega ride with daddy. It's half term next week so gone see if I can empty all his energy out on one ride Saturday and then he can sleep all through half term.

                  Low elev but a lot of subtle climbs made it draining, stop for a pint was nice though.

                      • Hey guys those of you that use Strava. Does it work better if your phone is strapped to your bars (if so recommendations for a good phone holder please)

                        Or will it work just fine if my phone is in my rucksack

                                In app you can enable privacy, and then go on main website and you can set up zones on postcode so it won't show exactly where you came from/went. Good if you're commuting and would recommend not having last name on there and no pics of wife.

                                Strava without privacy set up is a thiefs dream
