    Hi Champers, we can see you have not used it much as its like new.

    It looks quite small to me, might want the handlebars down a bit, you say you want something smaller BUT if the bike is actually shorter and smaller wheels it will get twitchy and be less easy to ride than the one you have.

    Good luck.

    Hi thank you for your reply Funflair, the bike is a full size 26 " not the smaller sized ones, the handlebars are at its lowest already

    Hi Kath, 26 inch wheels are fine the point I was making was that a shorter bike with smaller wheels would not be as stable as the one you have. I see that the handlebars are fixed so if you wanted them down it would be a hacksaw and welder job.

    You could always replace the handlebar stem with a shorter one, a lot more cost effective than replacing the bike.

    Ask Peter for the bars and stem from the earlier model
    They go pretty much all the way down so they are almost level with the saddle.
    I asked for the change when I bought my 26" wheel model and he supplied the kit FOC, but you know him and no matter what he will only charge a pittance for the replacement kit

    Love my AS bike..... yes, it is heavy but the ride is so comfortable, I found it better (more comfortable) that many e-bikes that are much more expensive.

    Just goes to show that you need to try before you buy. :)

    Thank you for the encouraging words... Thank you John for the info had no idea about that, we will email them and ask if they can help with that...
    Definitely a lovely bike we may try and turn the handle bar around ?? temporarily and see if that is any better for me

    You might laugh...but that's exactly what I did to Ginny's Prorider, two inches off the saddle stem and it made the world of difference for her :).

    If you do ultimately decide to sell the bike check the weight - it cannot possibly be only 10kg!

    MinxyGirl lolo lol....10kg was related to the rear rack carry weight

    Well seems turning the handles around did the trick, I was able to ride the bike this afternoon but will see if I can get the kit that John (Jaws) mentioned


    Soooo alas the bike is not now for sale ...........Sorry

    Again thanks for all the encouragement

    I also had a different saddle put on mine. A local bike shop had a saddle clinic where they measure your "sit bones" (you sit on memory foam and the measure the bum imprint) :Eeek:

    I thought they would tell me I needed a super expensive saddle but instead they recommended a less than £20 saddle and not the £100+ they could have said. It's made a huge difference :)
