    Painting calipers - top idea, or stupidest idea in the history of biking?

    I would powder coat them as more restisant to chips hence why when the car guys change colour of their callipers the get powder coated but will have to be completely stripped down and for finishing touch get some stickers made then you lacquer over them and won’t come off then Good luck

    2022 Motors Compared (Video)

    I appreciate it is quite difficult to do an exact comparison but for me there was to many variables. The giant bike would have almost be locked out suspension, so would have made more than a second difference easily. I have never rode a giant bike so could not say 100% I have only rode the...

    I have Bosch motor in my bike and my partners bike has ep8. The bosch feels much more powerful, and power is instant on the Bosch where I find the EP8 needs more cadence to get best out of it. The EP8 feels more natural and is easier to wheelie, but the Bosch feels much more powerful. On the...

    Bosch Kiox fixings

    Damm: I am getting a kiox fitted next week and I was not aware that this was an issue of them falling off. The shop said that I should screw it on, but one of the benefits of having this was the immobilisation of the bike when not on the bike. I thought it might fall off if you are...
