    The bike shop in Benicàssim has had my bike for 8 days now and said that It would cost €130 to fix.
    It apparently needs some magnets in the handlebar controls?
    As they have had it this long and and haven't fixed it and as we have booked into a site in Benidorm next week decided not to let them have a go at fixing it as they could take a longer time than we have to do it.
    We need to know of a shop in Benidorm as we'll be there for a month.
    Lots of funsters in Benidorm, hopefully with electric bikes that have some knowledge of a repair bike shop there?

    One of the Funsters here in Benidorm had a problem with his electric bike. He found a repair shop in Albir which carries out repairs on electric bikes. No doubt he will see this thread and reply to you..

    It's under warranty but in the uk. Its 15 months old. It would cost £90 to send one way.
    Dealer said he would send out control for handlebar but not sure if that's the problem.

    On ebay for less than half that you can get every bit of the control system, levers, throttle, motor control, display, everything except the motor. Parts cost nothing.

    Twice now, different bikes, I've had a broken wire in the brake switch, blob of solder, done.

    The shop assistant said and pointed behind the saddle in the wheel hub about the parts needed.

    if its the magnets in handle bars its the brake cut outs. how its taken so long is very odd. as they usually only need adjusting presuming they are in place. they always are a problem on hub motored e bikes

    EDIT:

    "The shop assistant said and pointed behind the saddle in the wheel hub about the parts needed."

    Have lost me now - that's not the handle bars....

    We had a repair recently done in Albir the shop is more or less opposite Lidl.
    The service was good. There is another shop on the old road back to Beni, others have used that one and say it is OK.
    Cheers
