    I have recently bought a new ebike and now cycling has become a joy. I've been out today and managed to tackle a route that I would never have done before. The poor lycra clad road bike male in front just couldn't understand how I could be possibly catching him up such a gradient! I didn't have the heart to pass him!
    I'm only using the assist when needed and going under my own steam the rest of the way. I have to say one of the best things I've ever bought. So if you are thinking about getting one, do it they are great!

    Happy new year to all funsters.

    I would have gone past and said "Good Morning" as I did so :)


    I switch the assist on when I need the extra "push" (still need to pedal), the throttle is only for setting off. I agree the best thing ever bought.

    Happy New Year to you as well.

    Yes it's a great feeling overhauling the lycra clad boys, on Christmas eve road over to Worthing on the sea front path in a force 8+ gale riding straight into the wind, left a few cyclists quivering in my wake. Even using full Turo power I was knackered after a few miles, New Years resolution - must learn to pace myself.
