DISCLAIMER. MOUNTAIN BIKING CAN BE DANGEROUS. YOU JOIN US AT YOUR OWN RISK.

SAFETY BRIEFING.

  • Wear a helmet. Despite recent advances in medical science, brains still cannot be mended nor replaced.
  • Wear gloves or mitts. Hands often hit the ground first. Cuts and grazes invite infection and a hospital visit.
  • Wear eye protection, it only takes a twig or thorn to lose an eye. Crud catchers are a good idea in mucky weather.
  • When downhilling, for your own protection, allow plenty of space behind the rider in front.
  • Bring a bare minimum emergency tool kit and a spare inner tube.
  • Breakdowns are a bore. Plan not to have any by ensuring your bike is in perfect working order.
  • Punctures are also tedious. You can minimise them by fitting latex tubes, slime tubes or running tubeless tyres.

Hi Everyone,

I hope you don't mind a retailer posting here.
We just wondered if any one or two of you would be interested in trying out a Haibike electric mountain bike on one of your more adventurous rides and review them for your forum.
No cost just some ID and a refundable deposit.

We offer Haibike electric Mountain bikes which you can see here: https://www.electricbikesales.co.uk/HAIBIKE-2016-Electric-Mountain-Bikes

Here's to cycling and never stopping!

Re: eMTB

Hi Eddie.

Just emailed you. Yep happy to do this.

Re: eMTB

Had a go on a full susser with a Bosch motor last year in Derbyshire. Very impressive, but not ready for the easy life yet.
No pain, No gain

Re: eMTB

Hi,

I tried a Haibike full susser in the demo area of the Cycle Show 2016. I went full throttle right from the start - no point in pussyfooting around - and it was pretty quick. It went round the flat, gravelly chicane like it was on rails.

It wasn't as quick as one of the other ebike hardtails that I tried, but that cornered like a cow.

I'm not quite as old as Paul but I would give it a demo on a proper ride.

Whatever you do, don't go near their website, you'll go mad - the spelling and grammar is bludy orfull!

Thanks Richard

Please do forgive these errors.
One of our guys has done great work on the website getting products on there and we are getting around to the spelling and grammar in our spare time.
Hopefully the enthusiasm for these great products shines through

If none of you have tried a Haibike before - they are an award winning German MTB manufacturer. They made the first factory built European made eMTBs and now have 80 eMTB models in their range.

They clearly obsess about the rider experience as I'm sure any trial rides will confirm.
