    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? 2½ 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.
