Why have I so far avoided an E-Bike – I can’t answer that, because there’s no good reason, save for the simple fact that as I head into my late 50s, I want to keep as physically fit as possible. I kind of just thought that, maybe if I had an EBike I’d pedal less! How wrong I was…

It’s been a month since Larisa took to the roads on her Red Chilli WR1 road bike. Time to get to know the bike, make finaladjustments and start to really enjoy things 🙂
Yes, trails and hills are beginning to look like a retro wonderland as the good old hardtail is back in fashion. You can now drink alongside Homer Simpson with pride as you discuss the merits of a loose and bouncy backend
Time to finish off the perfect bike build and get ready to ride the Bianchi. Setting up the bike and taping the bars
Let’s take a look at wheel sizes and try to convince you to let common sense and your riding style take over, by simply choosing the wheel that suits you and not the one that marketing wants you to ride.
Time to get the Bianchi frame set onto the Feedback stand and make it look like a bike. Fitting the internal cables can be trick, but we show you how
Firstly, video did not kill the radio star – Steve Wright is living proof of the longevity of that format. Secondly, the Kindle did not kill off the book, and finally, and the reason for this blog – the E-bike will not kill off good old fashioned cycling.
